Happy, happy Friday! I don’t know about you, but I’ve been l-o-v-i-n-g being back into the swing of things after the start of the year. I’ve loved being back to regularly scheduled programming on the blog, I’ve loved getting back into my workout routine, and I’ve just loved being back in Chicago this week, even if it’s freezing cold. I was staying with one of my girlfriends this past week and we had such a great few days doing all of my favorite things — working from the lobby of the Chicago Athletic Association, getting lunch at Sweetgreen, going to SoulCycle, sweating it out at Sculpt at CorePower Yoga, grabbing oat milk lattes at Pilates + Coffee, etc.
I absolutely loved my time away, but I am loving being home. 🖤
Here are this week’s finds…
I know I’ve mentioned this a million times, but “You Are a Badass” (by Jen Sincero) has been one of my favorite books over the years. I’ve read it three times, I’ve made it “required reading” for girls that I’ve hired, and I’ve recommended it to countless friends and strangers alike. I typically can’t listen to most books I read on Audible, as I tend to retain things more from physically reading, highlighting, underlining, etc. But since I’ve read the book enough times, I’ve now been listening to it again on Audible for a little while each day… While I’m getting ready, while I’m driving, etc. It’s such a positive way to start the day or give me a little pep talk later in the day!
I love this beanie with the fun fur pom-pom. Plus, it’s 50% off!
How cozy does this turtleneck look?!
I really enjoyed listening to Kate’s ‘How I Built This’ podcast episode!
Speaking of How I Built This, I loved this episode with the SoulCycle founders!
I’ve been loving Lost Kings lately… Every song on this album is so good!
I also recently listened to The Lively Show #283 (& #284) and found it to resonate a lot!
I’m all about the winter white denim!
How gorgeous is this long-sleeved dress?! Love the Cali vibes.
It’s only been a week, but I’ve been using this Aquis 4-Step hair program and I’ve already noticed such a difference in the hydration, softness, and smoothness of my hair.
I just picked up this Matrix hair spray about a week or two ago because my other travel size hairspray ran out and I am really loving it so far! I’m usually not that brand loyal to hairspray, as long as it’s a flexible hold. But I really love this one! I feel like it makes my curls so bouncy.
