And just like that Christmas is over. In some ways, it doesn’t even seem like it happened; yet in others I feel like it should already be springtime with these oddly warm temps.
Between conquering the last final sweep of suitcases to Charlotte and getting back into the swing of things post-holidays, I’ve been a busy lady. I’ve pretty much already decided, accepted and somehow embraced the fact that I’m currently living the nomad life. It’s a little odd to solely live out of a suitcase and a few duffle bags, but hey it’s almost over. This weekend, this little lady will finally be settled or at least own a mattress of my own in the Queen City. That’s got to be some kind of start. Lately these things have been on my radar:
Listening to: I’ve been late to the Serial game, but alas here I am. With all my trips between Roanoke and Charlotte I’ve gotten a little sick of listening to Pandora – cue: my newfound podcast obsession. Last night I finished season 1 of and am weirdly ready for another long trip to work on season 2.
Attempting to drink: Juice. In hopes to get back on track post-holidays, I bought a juice cleanse from Juice Bar. I’m starting tomorrow or Wednesday. I can’t decide, but send some liquid courage my way or maybe just French fries. I kid.
Something I’m ready to conquer. I’m thinking it should be an “easy” home décor project. Maybe?
This red matte lipstick. When it comes to red lipstick, you just can’t go wrong. Lately, I’ve been veering toward a subtle eye and this deep red to amp up my “winter” look.
Song on repeat.
“Hands to Myself” by Selena Gomez. You can’t not sing this one. It’s catchy, ok?
Movie I last saw.
Joy. I absolutely loved it. It has J-Law and she’s a badass inventor – it’s a must-see, especially for all you ladies out there.
Jewelry I can’t stop wearing.
This beautiful necklace my brother and sister-in-law got me for Christmas. It has my mom’s handwriting engraved on it from an old letter. It’s a piece I will forever cherish and I love having a piece of my mom with me. Doesn’t my mom’s handwriting look like a font?
I can’t stop thinking about this ring.
One thing I’m looking forward to.
A low key New Years Eve featuring sparkling Malbec, grilled steaks, pan seared scallops and more cocktails. Mmm..
