The amount of times I’ve told myself to get a grip this week is no small number. My mind has been just all over the place. From trying to keep Sheff’s sports in order (actually his whole damn social calendar), to committing myself to plans (fun plans, but plans), to making sure to fit in all my workouts, dinner, house chores – it’s just been a lot the last week. Plus, the weather has been dreary and gray – I think it’s time to bust out the OPI Cajun Shrimp for some cheeriness.
A trip to the library (even if I do have to pay late fees, because I can’t drag myself to drive to the library to return books on time – I know, I’m a horrible person) works wonders even if I have to sit and watch all the other books I own cry actual tears when I walk in with an armful of books. I found this link this week with books all similar to Song of Achilles, and my TBR list grew. I started Inventing Anna on Netflix and am obsessed. It’s so good. I also got an International Women’s Day date night with my neighbor as we went to Vecchia for a wine and olive oil night. It was a ton of fun – lots of delicious food and wine.
But I always come back to books to ground me for the week – or a well-timed episode of Dawson’s Creek. We got an email from Sheff’s teacher saying he was worried he was going to get in trouble for getting a “P” on his dictation, and I said a little prayer hoping he doesn’t turn out like me with the pressure of perfection. Like I said, this week, and my mind, have been all over the place.
Here is my offering at what’s caught my attention via the screen shot for this week:
|| I am obsessed with Oribe hair products -unfortunately, they are expensive AF for shampoo. Usually, I’ll keep it to a shampoo or their dry texture spray (which is the absolute best and smells like heaven).
|| Another super expensive thing that I probably don’t need, but I love these leggings. They look so fun, and in my brain, would make working out more fun.
|| I’d rather be at Chick-Fil-A 99% of the time I’m not at Chick-Fil-A. Nuggets and Chick-Fil-A sauce – bring it. I’ve ordered from this company before, and their sweatshirts are super comfy and great quality.
|| My eyes have been looking extra tired lately – lots of dark circles and it’s just making me look super old. I’ve read a lot of online reviews for this retinol eye stick, and I’m about ready to pull the trigger.
|| I’m all for color in a house – and that would include these cute little bowls from Wal-mart. At $25 for a set of three, you really can’t go wrong.
|| This cute little smiley basket would look super adorable holding blankets in the basement. Just sayin.
|| I wish I had the time and money to go and get my nails done – I always feel so put together when they’re pretty. But I really like the look of these with the holographic black tips. A little out of my comfort zone, but still super cute.
We’ve got double sports this weekend with Sheff, plus AU playing in the SEC tourney. I sure love a good long sports weekend. Hope everyone had a great week!
