Friends isn’t it time for something frivolous? This week has been exhausting for me mentally - I’ve been at a leadership training in Atlanta. It was a great program but also very intense. I then left Atlanta to come straight here to Houston for ANOTHER leadership retreat that starts tonight and runs through Sunday. Add to that the fact that our President just cannot help himself, my ankles are officially non-existent and I haven’t seen my family since Sunday.
I think it’s time to talk about something else. How was your week?
Here’s the latest installment of Girl Friday, highlighting all things frivolous, girlie and decidedly non-political things I’ve been exploring lately.
The booties that I lusted after during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Pre-Access were finally restocked in my size on Wednesday. #praise Let’s just hope that I’m reading the tea leaves correctly and ordered the right size for my post-baby feet.
Like everyone else I’m having a major Lizzo moment right now. Have you listened to her album? It’s so good and I can’t get it out of my head. Good thing my kid hasn’t been around me - because I’m 100 percent that bitch this week.
Looking for a game-changer in your beauty routine? I just had my eyebrows tinted for the first time and it’s amazing. I visited Symmetry Brow Bar on Burnet Road and 15 minutes later Nicola had given me more eyebrows that I every realized was possible. It’s becoming my newest little indulgence every 6 weeks.
In a strange turn of events I’m now the owner of shiny new toaster oven. I blame Amazon Prime Day and my daughter’s love of chicken nuggets. This is adulthood.
If you’re looking for a luxury name jewelry item that’s authentic but won’t break your bank - I introduce you to Old Soul Vintage Jewelry. This website takes zipper pulls, buttons, old earrings, you name it - from authentic luxury handbags and clothing and converts the pieces into handmade jewelry that’s actually affordable. I love that shopping here allows me to support a small creative business, doesn’t break my bank and still gives me my label fix.
I’d love to learn more about the frivolous things you’ve discovered lately - send me all the face masks, cute shoes and sappy movie recommendations! I’m grounded now and can’t really travel for work after this weekend so I’ll be looking for fun little treats to keep me spoiled and busy while I’m on baby watch.
