Four Thoughts: Vol 2


Read
Even though it's snowing out as I type this (yes, again), my mind has been on cleaning and organizing. I came across this article on The Glitter Guide and I realized that yes, my digital world needs Spring cleaning too! This piece has so many good ideas of ways to make our digital worlds less overwhelming (my photo roll is in desperate need of attention!). One idea that I actually have already been using for about two years now is unroll.me. Let me tell you, this baby is a lifesaver! It pulls all of your subscription emails and lets you decide whether you want to unsubscribe, keep them in your inbox, or add them to your "roll up". Then, you get one email a day that contains everything you have rolled up. To be honest, most days I don't even open these emails (I don't need to be tempted by the new arrivals at Nordstrom, thank you!), but I love it because it takes them out of my inbox and I have so much less clutter!

Listen
Not going to lie, I am still listening to Body Kindness. And I'm still loving it, of course! I usually get to listen to podcasts when I go for a walk and we are just having the most awful weather here in the Northeast, so it's been more of an indoor, yoga kind of week ;)

Watch
I guess once again, I'm late to the party, but I just realized that David Letterman has a new show on Netflix. Growing up, my sister and I used to tape Late Night and we watched it religiously. So I was excited to see Dave's new show and he does not disappoint! Not to get political (don't want to go there, haha), but the episode with Barack Obama was so good! Dave really is such a good interviewer and it's always interesting to listen to a past President (in my opinion). So good to see Dave back in his element!

Want
So, I have been seeing these bags alllll over Instagram for months now, and I am seriously contemplating getting one of my own. I love the classic, preppy feel of them them and the fact that they are so customizable! I may or may not have already designed my perfect style ;)


New Arrivals 3.13.18



Home again today for yet another snow day. Enough already! But this week's new arrivals are making me think Spring-y thoughts for sure! How gorgeous are these pieces?! Ideal for Easter, Mother's Day, or any old regular day ;)

Four Thoughts: Vol. 1



Welcome to Four Thoughts!  I'm always finding interesting things throughout the week (well, interesting to me, anyway!) and I thought it would be fun to share some of them here.

Read
I found this piece from Cupcakes & Cashmere (via The Everygirl) and I thought Emily shared such good ideas.  Healthy eating on a week to week basis can be a challenge, especially when all of us have busy schedules.  I find that some weeks I am really good and some weeks, I just give up.  Like Emily, I also hate the word diet.  It feels so restrictive, no?  Thoughtful planning and having healthy snacks on hand can make a big difference!

Listen
I started reading Body Kindness by Rebecca Scritchfield recently and I am really enjoying it.  Again, emphasis on not using the word diet.  Notice a theme here (haha)?  Rebecca explains how dieting is not the answer, but rather to listen to your body as it tells you what it needs.  Especially as I get older, I find this is becoming more and more important.  So I was excited to discover that there is also a podcast that goes along with it!  I have only listened to one episode so far, but I loved it and definitely am adding this to my Podcast Playlist :)

Watch
So, a few weeks ago, I was looking for a new show to watch and nothing was grabbing my attention.  But, as I was searching through Hulu, I came across Ugly Betty.  I had already watched the series years ago, but I started watching it again.  And guess what?  It's just as good the second time around!  Not only does this show have a great message (looks aren't everything, kindness and goodness matter), it's also just so colorful and fun to watch.  If you're just coming off of watching something really heavy, this is a great choice :)

Want
This week's Shopbop sale had me looking at the site a lot ;)  There are so many cute pieces!  Here are some of my favorites, all under $200:



New Arrivals 3.6.18


I don't know about where you are, but here in the Northeast, we are expecting a huge snowstorm tomorrow.  Combine that with that fact that EVERYONE on social media seems to be on a warm, sunny beach right now, and I am dreaming of summer.
That's the inspiration for this week's new arrivals.  How amazing are these pieces?  Don't they just make you think of summer?  I can't wait to pair these with my summer dresses (hopefully I won't have to wait too long)!
