Happy, happy Friday! I hope you had a wonderful day with friends and family yesterday. I just got back to Bogota from Cartagena late last night and it feels soooo good to be ‘home.’ I absolutely loved Cartagena, but after a week away, it feels good to be back in a city, in my home-away-from-home. Speaking of home, it was so strange to be away from family (and turkey, pumpkin pie, mashed potatoes, etc) on Thanksgiving this year, as Colombians don’t celebrate the holiday. It really didn’t feel like Thanksgiving at all (especially since I was in a tropical environment), but I enjoyed taking the day off and laying by the pool all day at our hotel in Cartagena! Much needed R&R that also gave me a lot of time to reflect on all that I’m thankful for. The holidays have been hard for me the last two years, so it was extra nice to have some downtime to hit pause, disconnect, and relax a little bit.
Anyway, I’m back in Bogota and back to work! If you’re passing the time in a plane, train, or automobile, or just lounging around the house with family and friends this weekend, here’s a good list of things to keep you busy.
Loved seeing how Amy decorated for the holidays!
I am OBSESSED with these bamboo dinner plates. Yes please!!
Can’t go wrong with a classic white pair of sneakers! Loooove these.
Tech-friendly gloves (with a bow) for only $36.
I need this sweater in every color! (It’s under $50!)
A guide to journaling and manifesting from Gabby Bernstein.
The $5 glasses I get asked about all the time on IG Stories.
MY FAVORITE JEAN SHORTS ARE BACK IN STOCK! I have these in four different washes. They’re $35, the perfect high-rise, don’t show your ass cheeks, work for girls with a booty… They’re the best, I’m telling you. Order multiple. (I have a US Size 6 and I typically wear a 27 in jeans. So size up if you’re in between!)
Gray Malin is running a 30% off promo this weekend, which rarely ever happens. Use code Turkey30! He’s one of my all-time favorite photographers, you can see some of his work in my apartment here and here!
Friggen obsessed with this pink and leopard outfit on Blair.
This new recommendation-based social network is suuuuuuper interesting.
I watched the IG Live where Pete Nordstrom got on with the Something Navy team last week. It’s so inspiring to see what an empire Arielle has created! (I remember hosting an event with her at DKNY back in the day, haha. Boy how the times have changed!)
