Since we’ve been gone…are you singing that song now, I know I did ha! It’s been a hot minute since we’ve been on IG and here on the blog. Mainly we needed a break from social media. With everything going on in the world, seeing all the hate, it really got to us. Plus just keeping up with IG, the blog and the pressure that it entails is alot. I guess you can say we lost ourselves in it all. We needed time to process what’s going on with the world, our own lives and what we wanted to do with this space.
Not going to lie, we wanted to delete everything and just move on. Over the month we’ve had people reach out and ask if we were ok, if we were coming back and just checking in. That meant the world to us. After lots of discussions we remembered our initial reason for starting all this…we needed an outlet. There have been so many fun things we’ve done in this space, things we really enjoy…like the drinks 🙂
Now that we are back, things will be a little different. We’re still figuring out the details but we’re focusing on things we enjoy and impact us in our daily lives. We want to relate to people and connect, not just talk about what to buy. Although, we do enjoy sharing products it just won’t be as much. So stay tuned!
In the meantime, this is what we’ve been up to….
Wow!!! A lot can happen in a month and a half….so what was I up to????
I was a reading machine. I decided there is only so much screen time I can take, so reading is a great alternative. I read two books…”Then She Was Gone” by Lisa Jewell and “The Night Swim” by Megan Goldin. Both great reads and a little dark if you like those kind of books. Next on my list is “The Last Mrs. Parrish”. Diving into that one this week! Speaking of reading…does anyone want to do a virtual book club with us?
Ok I did mention too much screen time, but I did binge watch some TV shows…Bridgerton (yes, it’s that good), Flight Attendant (hilarious and a little dark), The Vow (wow, so insane), Virgin River (adorable, and yes both seasons ha), The Undoing (so good and very dark). I think there may be one, more but I forgot or maybe I don’t want to admit to anymore because this is a little crazy.
I received both COVID-19 vaccines. First one was a breeze. Just a sore arm, but all good. Second one, knocked me on by butt. Fever, chills, aches and fatigue. But good news, only lasted a couple of days and felt normal by day 3. If you have the opportunity to get the vaccine, take it. Let’s try to get back to some normalcy.
Took a long weekend trip to Arizona to get some warmth and sun. However, it was not super warm and only saw the sun for one day. I feel cheated haha. But always great to have a change of scenery and eat at some of my favorite restaurants.
Favorite purchases lately…well I have to tell you that I have been very good with my shopping. Been trying to save, especially after the holidays. I did however buy some high top sneaks and I’m in love. Check these out…
Cute with jeans, leggings, shorts, dress the skies the limit!
Did some juicing! I’ve had a fancy Breville juicer for forever, but didn’t use much. Wow, we came up with some really good juices. Stay tuned for a blog post on that!
Got my booty in gear and worked out with Peloton 23 days the month of January. So far I’m at 16 days for February. Woo Hoo!!! I’m also on a 51 week streak which I’m super proud of.
Otherwise just enjoying time with my family and working like a crazy lady. Ready to get back to IG and blogging with my bestie.
The last couple months I have unplugged from my phone more and instead spending time getting sh!t done! Purging, organizing, hanging with the family. Oh and, like Jen, reading. Although I read one book 🙂
I’ve also been binge watching shows, Bridgerton (ditto to what Jen said, so good), Flight Attendant, Virgin River, Friends (my favorite), I feel like there is more…I just started watch Jane the Virgin which has been pretty good!
I’m still loving my faux-leton! Although this weekend, I did end up ordering one. I also joined HotWorx which is amazing! It’s virtually instructed classes in an infrared sauna! Yes like hot yoga but there are other classes and it’s a different type of yet. They offer a free class, I highly recommend!
We’ve been continuing updates to the house, removed popcorn from Pep’s room and their bathroom. Next up is the spare bedroom then the hallways! Speaking of Pep, she lost two teeth and turned 6! Which is still crazy to me!
Otherwise, still living in leggings and sweats. Also the long faux leather AF jacket has been life in this weather!
Excited for a fresh start on IG and the blog! Can’t wait to dive back in just in a different way 🙂
Thank you all for your love and support, we appreciate you all so very much!! xoxo
