Week in Review, Vol. VII

Thank God it’s finally February, I thought January would never end! I hope you are all staying warm with the crazy polar vortex that happened in the Midwest this week. Despite the miserable cold, there were a number of positives that happened this week: I was able to work from home as a result of the severe weather and I always find that I’m far more productive at home than at the office, and the Backstreet Boys released their new album DNA! I’ve been a HUGE BSB fan since the ripe age of 4, and I love that they’re still producing new music. **Peep a few of their new songs I can’t get enough of in the “What I’m Listening To” portion of this post.**

Recent Purchases:

  • I just picked up this tortoise print Sonix phone case off Amazon, and I’m obsessed with it! I’ve been rocking a Lilly Pulitzer one for the past two years and while I love feeling summery year round, I was ready for a change. This is super affordable at $35 and is Military Drop Test Certified.
  • Because we know I can’t get enough of books (and I discovered two unused Barnes & Noble gift cards in my wallet), I ordered “Big Magic” by Elizabeth Gilbert and “The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck” by Mark Manson. I try to read a handful of self-help books a year and these two have been on my “to read” list for a while now.

Looking Ahead:  

I am so incredibly proud of myself for successfully sticking to all of my goals for this year throughout the month of January, so I look forward to seeing the continuing progress I make from here on out. Many of my fitness goals resulted in predominately non-scale victories, which is great, but not quite where I want to be yet. As always, I’m working on some new content on topics I haven’t really touched yet and I’m so excited to share. Stay tuned!

Week in Review, Vol I

Week in Review

Hi Friends!

It’s definitely been a minute since I’ve had a chance to sit down and work on a post, but – truth be told – life gets crazy while trying to balance my full-time job, personal life, and blogging all while maintaining my sanity. Although I’ve been on this little hiatus,  I’ve been working on some projects behind the scenes of the blog, so stay tuned for some exciting news, big changes, and fun, new content coming soon!

I’ve decided to start this new Week in Review series as a “revamp” of the former Keeping It Current and monthly playlist series, but instead of just talking about myself, I’ll be sharing content relevant to my readers including books, new tv shows that have sparked my interest, new music, interesting articles, shopping/sales, and more. I’m always open to hearing what you guys want to see on the blog so feel free to leave a comment on my posts or dm me on my social channels; whether it’s something you’re looking to read about from my perspective in a post or a featured quick read in these Week in Review posts, I want to hear from you!
