Link-End Round-Up February 23, 2018

This week felt so long, but at the same time, I feel like I didn’t finish anything. Actually, I have a lot of projects I’m working on for work and for the blog, as well. Therefore, I’ve been learning how to get the most of time and not waste my days. Learning to identify things that I do that causes me to procrastinate has been quite interesting.

It’s been raining for the past few days and not letting up until early Sunday morning. Thank goodness that I don’t have any obligations this weekend, because I’m still working on not cancelling this to the last minute. I can’t handle the guilt that comes with that.

Since work has been a little overwhelming, I think I’m going to come into the office this weekend for a little overtime. Time and half PLUS making some headway in finish up a project. Yes, please! Other than that, I plan to spend most of my weekend laying on the sofa and watching TV with random sheet masks on my face. Why can’t it be the weekend already?!

Check back next week to see if was able to prevent myself from melting into my sofa.

eSTYLIST: Lemons and Lines

I’ve that gloomy point between seasons when I feel as if I’ve run out of outfit options. I tend to experience this the most between winter and spring. The transition from cold to warm can be hard to dress for. Needless to say, I can’t wait until this transition period is over and I can finally break out all the pastel shades and floral prints that embody my spring aesthetic. To help curb my lust for spring styles, I created this eStylist post that features a cute work-friendly look for spring.

Link-End Round-Up February 16, 2018

After spending the beginning of the week dealing with an allergy-induced head cold, I’m feeling back to normal. I had dinner plans tonight with some of my favorite Galentines, but they fell through yesterday. So, “the guy” and I might got try to see the new Black Panther movie tonight. As much as I want to see this movie, I’m not sure if I’m mentally strong to endure the Friday night movie crowds. However, I’ve been pumped to see this movie ever since they started dropping visual early last year. The fashions and in this movie look absolutely INSANE, as well as the sets. I’ve read and heard that you will enjoy this movie, even if you aren’t into comics and/or action movies.

Other than attending church, I plan to spend most of the weekend at home watching the NBA All-Star weekend. This week felt long. So, a lowkey weekend seems more than appropriate, don’t you think? Not to mention that I’m absolutely sick of this bi-polar weather. It’s been cold, warm, rainy, sunny, and sometimes all in one day. Ugh! I just wish spring would hurry up and come through, because there are so many cute spring things I want to buy, but can’t justify the purchase.

Well, here’s to an amazing weekend in preparation for a productive week.

So glad that it’s Friday, because this has been a hectic week; personally and professionally. Not to mention, I only worked 4 days this week, which actually caused some of the hectic vibes. So, this weekend, I’m planning to take great big sigh and work on some fun and creative things that I’ve been conjuring up amongst this busy week. Also, today is National Pizza Day. So, I’m kicking it off this evening by ordering some pizza, pairing it with the my favorite cheap bottle of red wine, and watching the opening ceremony of the Winter Olympics.

I also need to use this weekend to mentally regroup, because I have non-work related events and appointments almost everyday next week. Sure, a couple of these events include my long overdue nail appointment and a girl’s night out, but they’re still plans.

Also, I’m shamelessly patting myself on the back for actually working and sticking to my creating my mindful habits I shared earlier this week. The other night, I actually felt kind of therapeutic and calm while washing my dishes. Maybe it was because the only thing on my mind at that moment was making sure I washed every single dirty dish in my home and clean the rest of the kitchen. Afterwards, having a lemon fresh scented kitchen without any clutter in sight was the cherry on top. I think I’m starting to look forward to cleaning the kitchen every night and I might throw the bathroom in to really get it popping. WHO AM I?!

Well, here’s to a lovely weekend and productive upcoming week. See ya next week!

Are you ready for Superbowl Sunday?! If football isn’t your thing, there’s always the commercials and halftime show, which is starring fellow Memphian Justin Timberlake. So, you can get into that. FYI, I’m rooting for the Philadelphia Eagles I always root for the underdog if my team isn’t playing.

Also, Superbowl Sunday is also the last day of my fast. I’ve been without coffee and fast food for almost 3 weeks. I could care less about the latter, but me and coffee have been BFFs for years. Actually, I fast off of coffee every year when I do this corporate fast with my church. However, it’s been rough this year and I’ve been wanting coffee hard. I’ve been substituting coffee with soy chai lattes and their great and all. Still, I miss my morning coffee runs and 3pm coffee breaks to get a quick surge to finish the rest of my day.

Aside from watching the big game on Sunday, I finally have the time to get my hair dyed and a blowout on Saturday. My roots are long overdue for a touch-up. These strands of grey and silver in my hair need to go like 3 months ago.

Well, I hope you all have a fun and safe weekend and let’s chat some more next week.
