Friday Link Love, Vol. 21

Hello... it's me...

Yes, it's true I haven't posted since Monday. I honestly hate when I can't bring you all new content. But we all have to remember, that I'm only one person... who has a full-time job and attempted social life in addition to this site. So please, forgive me....

Any who, enough Adele references...



I walked past this gorgeous tree the other day on my way to work, and just had to snap a pic of it!


This week was absolutely amazing. Why? Because I caught up on sleep, relaxed, and for the first time in months... didn't blog during the week. Sometimes your body just tells you when you need to slow down and take a break. So once the gala was over with, I finally listened.

I went to sleep earlier, rested at night, avoided reception beverages and food for dinner, ate healthier, and drank three full Smartwater bottles a day. The beginning of the week I just felt so sluggish, exhausted and burnt out. But by the end of the week, I was energized and ready to focus back on blogging and my social life. We all need and deserve these types of weeks, am I right?!

This weekend I have a pretty chill few days planned. The weather is supposed to be incredible here in DC. Highs in the mid-70s, sunny and just beautiful. I plan to spend as much time as I can outdoors. The only thing I have planned so far is to shoot a ton of looks on Sunday with my friend, blogger and photographer, Nicole. So I'll have brand new outfit content coming your way soon.

Hopefully y'all's weekends are much more exciting than mine LOL but before you go... I put together a rather large (trying to make up for being absent all week) link love, including some "must gift" items for Mother's Day.



My sweet friend Katie sent this bouquet to me last week as a congrats for my gala being over. I've absolutely enjoyed having this in my apartment all week. Thanks Katie!!

Coming Up Next Week: I'm bringing you FIVE brand new posts. Yes mam (and sirs)!! A full week of content. I assure you this will happen, because they're all basically done. Wahhoo for Friday motivation!

We're kicking the week off with a brand new "learn" post, where I'm sharing some tips for apartment spring cleaning.

Another "shop post" is coming your way Tuesday + an all new outfit post on Thursday. We'll be rounding out the week with our monthly recap + looking ahead. All this and...
