Friday Finds || Vol. 2, Week 6 & 7

Happy Weekend, friends! I haven’t been online much over the last few weeks and it’s been pretty glorious. Hallie and I have been making our way through Australia and have been cramming so much into each day… sightseeing, creating content, and setting aside some time to unplug and enjoy ourselves, too. We’re about 2.5 weeks in and so far we haven’t made it out past midnight… There have been quite a few nights where we’ve been lights out by 9:30. #grandmastatus I just haven’t had the energy to open my computer and crank out some work once I crawl into the sheets. So with that being said, this week’s links are kind of light! Hopefully you, too, can spend less time online and enjoy your weekend. xoxo JRS

Grey Days

While I may be writing this from sunny Australia (sorry!), I know lots of places in the US are freezing and getting hit with snow. I’ve only been gone for two weeks, but I honestly can’t even remember what winter feels like. Funny how that happens, huh?

Friday Finds || Vol. 2, Week 5

Hello from sunny Palm Springs! Like I mentioned yesterday, I’m in California this weekend for my friend Ashley‘s bachelorette party. I came a day early and stayed at a hotel on Wednesday night and then made my way to the house we rented yesterday evening. We’ve got a house full of 17 girls and it’s been a blast so far. Last night we made pizzas and watched Troop Beverly Hills, which I had shockingly never seen before. Talk about a feel-good, girl-power movie! It came out in 1989 (the year I was born) so I think I must have just missed it growing up. We’re all getting some work done this morning, then heading to lunch, soaking up some sun, and going out for dinner and dancing later tonight! This is my 3rd time in the Palm Springs area and I realized I’ve never shared some of my favorite spots, so be on the lookout for that sometime soon. Be sure to follow along on Instagram Stories for snaps of the weekend!

Lunar Cycles + A Favorite Winter Outfit

Hi friends! Today’s post is going live a bit later because I’m on the west coast. I flew into LAX yesterday and made the drive to the Palm Springs area last night! I’m currently staying at the Miramonte Resort in Indian Wells and writing this with the most beautiful backdrop of palm trees, a pool, and mountains against a bright blue sky… Does it get any better? Such a wonderful way to kick off a new month! I would say, “Can you believe how fast January went by?!” because that’s usually the case with time speeding right on past, but didn’t January actually feel like it was 3 months long? Or was that just me?!

My Go-To Healthy (Easy!) Recipes

When it comes to cooking at home, I’m a total creature of habit. I tend to make the same healthy things every week and when I was thinking about why, I came up with a number of reasons.  1) It makes going to the grocery store a breeze. I’m in and out, mostly because I’m picking up all of my usual things. (And I know where everything is!)  2) These recipes are SO EASY to make. I’m not sure if it’s me being lazy or simply preferring eating to be a breezy, enjoyable experience. Let’s go with the latter.  3) Kind of like how we’ve talked about uniforms and decision fatigue, cooking is kind of the same for me. It’s nice taking the guesswork out of it!
