Okay so I’ve been sitting here with this blank post open for the last 30 minutes and just jamming out to Throwback Thursday on Spotify. Every time I’m like “one more song,” and then the next song is so good! Friday feels for ya. Luckily I am at home working today, which means my own coffee hot and when I want it, and PJ’s all day. Thank goodness for computer jobs!
This week’s Instpiration:
The first day of fall was yesterday and it’s still so hot here in Phoenix! I can definitely tell it’s cooling off a little in the mornings and evenings. I wake up Monday – Friday at 5:30 am for the gym (unless it’s too much of a struggle), and the weather is nearly perfect. These last few weeks I’ve been non-stop living through all my favorite bloggers on Snapchat during Fashion Week. Marianna Hewitt, Eva Chen, and Chriselle Lim are a few of my favorites. I’ve only just discovered Arielle Charnas and I’m in love with her Ruby snaps! Do you guys have any favorite bloggers through Fashion
Speaking of fashion, this week I totally caved in and bought these adorable Jeffrey Campbell boots from Free People. Here is how I generally come to buy something:
Thinks about it for one day, weights pros and cons, and then sees the size 6 completely sell out in front of her eyes. Thinks on it a second day and visits the site again, and sees the size 7 has sold out now. Knows she’s a size 8, and size 7 is way to close to size 8. Panics and throws all cons out the window and purchases boots before they sell out. Looks on website the next day, and sees two sizes left. Breaths large sigh of relief and feels totally happy with purchase. Justifies it by saying, “I can always return them if I don’t like them.”
But at least I am totally ready for fall now, right? Only about 33 more items to go.
Last weekend I did a little shoot with a friend to get some updated photos for my blog. I woke up at 4 am in order to catch the very early light at 5:30 am. We broke in to a little bar downtown that has beautiful outside seating. By ‘broke in’ I mean we stepped over a four foot fence. We’re so dangerous I know! Excited to use some of the photos on my blog, but still working on a few things (like possibly a new logo) first.
I have a few travel dates coming up. I’ll be in LA next weekend (October 1st) and then the following weekend after that I’ll be in San Diego and Temecula. I’ve been itching to do a few weekend trips lately, so I can’t wait! If you guys have any suggestions of things to do (what I really mean by this are places to eat and coffee shops to visit) in LA or SD, please let me know! I sort of have a list in mind already, but I do love hearing people’s suggestions.
Also, let me know if you’re in LA and want to hang out next weekend! We’ll most likely be visiting a bunch of coffee shops and instagramming around LA. Come hang out with us and have fun!
Next week I will have my morning skin care routine posted, which is a little more robust than my night time routine. I also miiight be doing a giveaway of a product I’ve been RAVING about on Coat + Coffee in the next few weeks. I always take my reader’s feedback seriously and read every comment on every editorial, and I love trying to make things happen for you guys! Hopefully you’ll like what I have in store.
That’s it for super short little life updates. Cheers to the weekend!
