(get ready for a whole lot of randomness)
*happy sunshine dance. this is how i feel about the weather we’ve been having in NYC recently:
*running. i’m back to being stoked for pre-work morning runs, which hasn’t happened often in the past couple of months. i’ve gotten up before 6am the last two days to rock some loving-life Hudson River jaunts, and it honestly does wonders for my day to set out into a gorgeous morning and have some healthy “me time,” and giving me positive energy to carry with me throughout my workday. it gives me so many “so thankful this is my life” feelings and truly helps renew my mind.
i ran the same route the past two mornings — definitely slower this morning, as my legs were tight and tired (i need yoga in my life, or at least my foam roller! whoops, lazy stretcher) — and was reminded of how much i enjoy the Hudson River path. such a magical place for a morning run.
*Birchbox & florals. anyone else lovin’ bright, big floral prints (for the second year in a row, as i feel like they were such the thing last year as well?). i just got a new Birchbox yesterday and it’s my favorite patterned box thus far:
if you’re still undecided about Birchbox, i can say i’m a big fan. i mean, who doesn’t want to get a box of surprise girlie goodies each month, for only $10? i also think it works especially well for people like me, because i’m not super into make-up or beauty products, not married to any specific brands, and entirely open to trying new things — and since i don’t buy a ton of them or wear a lot of make-up to begin with, the samples tend to last me plenty long enough. i’m most into the haircare products, and i’ve had really good luck with what they send.
*fashion. i’m really, really stoked to be wearing snapbacks & baseball caps again. one of my fave accessories. and i will never pass up a chance to wear boyfriend jeans, especially to a MLB game. sorrynotsorry ’bout the lips.
side note: i own two things from Lululemon. TWO. (i know, i know — and i say i’m obsessed with workout clothes??) that sweat is one of them, and i would never wear it to work out…but i LOVE it. love love love love.
*snacking. a friend in my grad program brought this vegan, gf granola to class the other night and i almost had to bite my knuckles to keep myself from eating the whole bag. it’s soooooo good.
anyone had Healing Home Foods products before? i’d never heard of them until this week, and now i’m currently waging an internal war against buying their granola in bulk or boycotting it forever. i’m not sure i can be trusted around it, but i feel like i have to have it, all day every day. quite the dilemma.
*fun. i mean, but like, also kinda true…
next stops: Miami, Vegas, Jacksonville, all in 3 weeks time! 🙂
What’s making your heart happy this week?
Whatcha catching, feelings or flights?? no brainer here for me…
Fave granola? i shouldn’t ask, but i neeeed to know!
