Link Love Vol 22

Link Love Vol 22

I know I said this the other day, but I cannot believe it is June. How did that happen?

It’s been a long week, does anyone else notice that the week after a long weekend always feels longer despite being a day shorter? I’ve been running around a little bit crazy, feeling like I’ve been playing catch up since I woke up Tuesday morning! I’m looking forward to spending the weekend with friends, relaxing and hopefully shooting a few outfits to share with y’all!

In addition to link love vol 22 I’m going to start doing something a little different on Fridays and update you on what’s going on currently in my life!

eating // rainbow carrots. Seriously, y’all I’m obsessed, maybe a recipe coming soon? I’m also just eating healthier in general and working on cooking more!

reading // The Devil in the White City

watching // re-watching The West Wing because it’s the best show ever made and it reminds me why I wanted to come to DC in the first place… yes I know it’s just a tv show but it’s a great one!

trying // to stay off my laptop an hour before bed and get in some form of exercise every day, I have got to get back in shape, Marine Corps Marathon is getting closer and closer and I seem to be getting lazier and lazier, it’s a problem.

feeling // a tad overwhelmed and also excited about new opportunities (more on this soon!).

working on // content, content and more content! I’m spending this weekend on a June content calendar and hopefully getting some of the posts written ahead of time!

excited // to see Me Before You, I finished the book a couple weeks ago and absolutely loved it so I can’t wait to see the movie tonight!

Link Love Vol 22

1 // This might just be the most Boston thing I’ve ever seen and it is beyond amazing

2 // You can’t watch it just yet, but you can add the new Gilmore Girls to your Netflix queue

3 // I can’t stop reading all the things about The Cursed Child, these pictures are getting me so excited. Anyone up for a trip to London?

4 // Watching people who hate cats talk about living with cats 

5 // This is only the cutest fight in the history of martial arts

6 // I really want to try this off the shoulder trend that everyone has been rocking, I feel a little left out, not having tried it! I’m thinking this dress might be perfect!

Hope you enjoyed this weeks little dose of link love vol 22! What are you up to this weekend?

Link Love Vol 21

Happy Friday! I am so done with the weather we are having in DC, it has been grey, gloomy and rainy since I arrived last weekend, and it was like this in San Diego the week before. Yuck. I thought the saying was April showers bring May flowers, not April showers bring more May showers.

This week has been long but a lot of fun, it’s been nice settling back in to DC. This week has been full of drinks and coffee meetings to chat about my job search and potential leads. Wednesday I headed to an amazing event at the Newseum (which is my absolute favorite DC museum) with a couple really good friends from home who are living in DC too, it all centered around social media and the election. Sign me up. There were some really cool exhibits, great food, and a lot of wine that led to me becoming a member of the museum, so DC friends- if you want to go to the Newseum, I’ve got you covered! The best part of being pretty busy this week is that I haven’t even had time to start unpacking. so no one can yell at me for procrastinating… it’s the little things people.

Last night I was putting together link love vol 21 and thinking about what types of links to share. I usually just share what’s on my radar for the week but I’d love to hear from y’all, is there anything specific you want to see when I share these posts? More sales, less articles? I’d love any and all suggestions!

1 // DC is building an ark after 15 straight days of rain

2 // Apparently everyone wants the West Wing to come back just as much as I do

3 // Are you writing those thank you notes after interviews?

4 // Since I seem to be pretty focused on politics this week, check out what celebrities wore to meet the president

5 // Tips for a better night sleep, I’ll try just about anything at this point

6 // Make your google calendar work even better for you

7 // I want this top in every color (and pattern)

8 // ICYMI: This week’s wellness Wednesday post is awesome

I hope you all have a great weekend! I’ll be catching up on emails, with old friends and hopefully squeezing in a few runs, Marine Corps Marathon is quickly approaching and it is embarrassing how bad my running is right now!

If I missed anything for link love vol 21 let me know so I can check it out!

Link Love Vol 20

I hope you’re all enjoying your weekend!! I’m finally back in San Diego and my mom is out for a visit! We have a ton scheduled for the weekend including all the San Diego highlights- Old Town, Coronado, Balboa Park- I’m super excited! It’s so funny, my parents have been out here at least a dozen times but usually they’re here for a surf trip with family friends so they end up flying to San Diego and heading to Mexico. It’s going to be a lot of fun to show my mom a little more of one of her favorite cities. We’re staying at The Estancia La Jolla and I could not be more excited to relax and have a little spa time!

Did you see Prince George being absolutely awesome when he met the Obama’s? 

Also, because I’m obsessed with all things Will and Kate, did you see them feeding baby elephants and rhinos? 

Sick of unripe avocados? Give this trick a try. 

I am obsessed with this hat! I just can’t decide what color bow I need. Yes, need.

Can we please talk about J.Crew’s stripe guide? On. Point.

Your plans for Memorial Day Weekend. You’re welcome.

That’s it for Link Love Vol 20, as always let me know if I missed anything! I hope you have a great weekend!!
