Weekend Notes | February 5th, 2021

Weekend Notes | February 5th, 2021How’s everyone feeling? Are you guys seeing a light at the end of the tunnel? I’d like to say that I am (seeing a light) and at this moment, I’m going to stick with the trajectory.

I’ve always been a person that thrived off having things to look forward to, but that’s especially the case now.

At the moment, we’ve booked a few driving trips from now until the summer. Most of them are with our family friends, but one will be with three of my close girlfriends and no children. We’re driving out to the vineyards on Long Island and renting an Airbnb for two nights. Those plans in itself keep me happy! When I was younger, I couldn’t wait until the actual event or plans happened, but as I got older, I realized to enjoy the lead up. It keeps us in a better spirit and that’s not something to take for granted, especially now.

Weekend Notes | February 5th, 2021

On that topic, Grace has a great post on what she’s looking forward to. It’s inspiring me to create my own list.

Have You Ever Had a Friendship Breakup? After reading this post, I shared it on Instagram and it sparked quite the conversation.  I’m going to save it to a highlight.

‘You’re Not Imagining It: The Pandemic Is Triggering Stress-Induced Hair Loss.’

I’ve been trying to get into the habit of practicing Square Breathing. It really helps!

What to say instead of  “How are you?” in small talk conversations.

In case you missed it, four of my favorite pairs of sneakers. 

One of my favorite facial creams now comes in a limited-edition value size.

Ring Concierge is having up to 20% off. Some of my favorite pieces that I wear all the time: the initial signet ring, the diamond wrap ring (I have it in rose gold) and the tennis bracelet I wrote about here. For earrings, I wear these trio studs and these curved studs almost daily.

An argument for having fewer friends.

This sweater from Everlane remains one of my favorites. I wear a thin t-shirt underneath and personally, don’t find it itchy, but I should add, I’m not that sensitive to materials. I get it in a medium so it’s a bit roomier.

 5 bedtime story podcasts to listen to for a better night’s sleep.

I recently got this olive oil sprayer after Mary Orton recommended and it’s been great at not over oiling something!

Why staying connected to friends & family is so important to your well-being.

An ode to Taco Night.

If you’re in the market for a Sherpa, I love this one and it’s on sale.

Imagine seeing color for the first time.

Have a wonderful weekend!
