This month’s edition of Things I Love is oh so random, just like I like it!
Well, duh. I’m pretty sure you all knew I loved this! But, these days, with even LESS free time on my hands with a tyke at home, it makes it harder than ever to take leisurely shopping days that I so crave every now and again to unwind. So, when things are nonstop busy and I can’t seem to find some ‘me time’ for a little retail therapy, I just allow myself to close the office door for the night a little early, pour a big glass of wine and get my e-commerce on! Big time stress reliever! And totally happy making when those boxes show up at your door!
Family Bike Rides
We tuned up my old cruiser bike, got G a baby bike seat, and this family has hit the open road! Okay, not really, we mostly stick to side streets because I am too klutzy to be trusted on a bike too close to real busy streets, but it has become a fun little activity for us to do together and I only wish we started doing this sooner! Even if it’s just a quick ride up to the nearby park and back, it’s a relaxing little way to spend time together as a family and I am loving it. Now, I just need a cup holder for my biking cocktails….
I am by no means blonde, but I did go lighter with some color in my hair a couple weeks ago and I’m a little obsessed. Thank god my hair stylist is also my friend and knows when to reign me in for my own good before I demand her dye my whole head platinum!
Okay, I know I’m a little late to the party on this one, but I finally decided to read #GIRLBOSS and I am totally joining the masses on singing it’s praises. I only wish it was longer! Seriously! Love Sophia Amoruso’s wit and the frankness in her writing….and the fact that I, now, feel vindicated for all the life ‘meandering’ I’ve done on my way to figuring out what it is I wanted to do. What I’ve taken away from the book? Love what you do, be unapologetically you, and hustle like there is no tomorrow! Color me motivated!
Ed Sheeran’s ‘Kiss Me’
Another late to the party love here. And a total guilty pleasure at that! I didn’t even know who Ed Sheeran and after googling him and realizing he was who sang the song ‘Kiss Me’ , I recoiled a bit, realizing I’m basically a teeny bopper by admitting I love this song so much. But I kind of can’t help it (and it’s not just because of THIS….okay, maybe it is a little bit! Gah, I just also admitted my deep Vampire Diaries obsession too, I think I AM a teeny bopper!). And I’m kind of dying for someone to choose this as their first dance song…but, maybe that means I need to be photographing weddings of 15 year olds, eeek!
The Nikon D4s
I only shoot Nikon because they come in gold boxes! Okay, not really, but it doesn’t hurt either! So excited to have this bad boy camera join my gear family, whooo! Next up, trying my hand at shooting with 2 bodies at a time, fun fun fun!
Sauza Sparkling Margaritas
Fellow margarita lovers unite! Lately, I’ve been getting my margarita swagger on to the tune of the delicious bottled Sauza Sparkling Margaritas. Super refreshing for a warm summer night. And so easy for when you can’t be bothered with ingredients and making your own cocktails, all you need is ice and a glass (and salt if you like)! They could be a tad stronger in my humble margarita loving opinion, but, maybe, it’s a good thing they are not, because I’m pretty sure I could put away a whole bottle by myself in one sitting. Forgive me in advance (okay, maybe it’s after the fact) for all my margarita wielding selfies….but, a Girlboss needs her fuel too!
Well, there you have it! Maybe my most random Things I Love post ever! I hope I didn’t lose you or scare you off by my teeny bopper tendencies. (But, let’s be honest…you cant even deny how hot Ian Somerhalder!)
So, what are YOU loving on lately?! What refreshing cocktails are you sipping? Any new music you have been playing on repeat, besides the new T. Swift song? Any new books to recommend? Throw ‘em at me!
