Happy Weekend

January 4, 2014

The weekend is here, but it feels a little strange, don’t you think? With all of the random days off for the holidays, it sort of feels like a Wednesday to me, except for the fact that my husband is home with me right now. Although today is a pretty exciting day in my professional life, I’m sick as a dog with some kind of a congestion/sore throat virus and pretty much have been on the couch since New Year’s Day.

Since many of you are probably sick like me, or stuck in a snowstorm or crummy winter weather, I figured it could be nice to round up some good reading from around the web for those of you who are staying inside and looking for more good stuff to peruse…

The secret to perfect long “swoop bangs” for those who aren’t ready to make the cut.

Seven tips for an organized wardrobe (something I’m majorly dedicated to in 2014!).

10 ways to declutter you life in the new year. (Um, yes please.)

Need a new paper planner for 2014? This is the one I use and absolutely love.

How to make French Press coffee the right way.

Really helpful thoughts on creating goals and setting priorities.

Also, some books I’m dabbling in right now (sorry, no book club this month!)…
>> I Love Your Style by Amanda Brooks
>> Jab, Jab, Jab, Right Hook by Gary Vanderchek
>> The Body Book by Cameron Diaz

What does your day look like today (sick, snowed in, doing something awesome)?

    Love this! As it is currenty only +1F here in Northern MN, we safely and happily celebrated my dad’s birthday! I also grocery shopped like a champ, because Monday it will be -50F (-70F with the wind-chill)!!

    Congratulations again on Nellie! We are all so thankful for you and the team!!

      Oh my gosh, FREEZING!! That’s unimaginable for me. Good job getting out there in the cold (smart to prepare, too!). And thanks about Nellie—it feels good to have it launched and out there!

    I’m so glad Maggie made an appearance! Is it Maggie? I’ve been wanting to see her :)
