I just had an amazing dinner and I am itching to catch up on this week’s Project Runway so I am going to make this super short and sweet. Below, I’ve posted some of my favorite links around the web this week. I hope you enjoy!
That’s cause for celebration in and of itself! It was my first full week back at work since December 20th and let me tell you, it was NOT easy. I feel more tired than I have in a while, stressed again with business and I think there’s a direct correlation with working and my skin looking 10 years older than I actually am. But, I’m hopeful that after some much needed extra rest this weekend, I will be back better than ever next week.
Since I haven’t posted one of these in a while, I’ve included some additional amazing articles and videos that have surfaced the interweb over the past couple of weeks. I hope you enjoy celebrity baby news, tear-jerking proposals and videos of people falling as much as I do. Enjoy!
Life is too short to not celebrate any chance you get and that’s exactly what I capitalized on this year for my birthday. I celebrated my 24th year on this planet not one, not two, but for four straight days. And if I’m being completely honest, I still have one more dinner this weekend. “Extra” would be a word I’d possibly toss around for the constant, busy schedule that was this week.
If you follow along my journey on Instagram (if you don’t, you should and can HERE), then you know that the reason I’ve been absent on my site is because this week I’ve literally been out every.single.night! The week started with a celebratory dinner at Etta with my mom. Etta has been on my list for SO long and it definitely did not disappoint. I will write a more in-depth review soon. On Tuesday, I heard the Jonas Brothers were coming to town, so I dragged my mom to AllState Arena to row 4 on the floor and we danced the entire night away. Wednesday was the monthly Wine Night at one of our favorite local restaurants. The finale, my actual birthday, was yesterday (Thursday 12/5) and I ended my crazy week with PTO from work, a 3-hour spa day and a fabulous dinner at the Princess Café.
This week has been magical and although some people have given me a hard time for celebrating so much, I really don’t mind because I’ve had a blast. Maybe I encouraged you to celebrate some more for your next birthday and for that alone, it was worth it. But, it is time to get back to regularly scheduled programming, which starts with the weekly Friday Favorites. Some of the best articles and videos I found on the internet are below. I hope you enjoy and have a wonderful weekend!
Art Basel is happening right now in Miami, I’ve had fun following along with some of my fave celebs on their social accounts!
For the past week, I’ve been pretty out of commission. With the season change, came the inevitable sickness. It’s out there and it’s sinister this year, so beware! But just as I posted in my Instagram caption on Monday’s post, “almost everything will work again if you just unplug it for a few minutes. Even you.” No statement resonated with me more than this. As a woman always on the go, it was a hard pill to swallow, but I learned the importance to taking a step back and taking a breather, otherwise your body will take it for you and it’ll usually come at a very inconvenient time.
Although being sick wasn’t ideal, it allowed me to rest and heal for a second, something I hadn’t taken time for in a while. Now, I am feeling refreshed, renewed and inspired to create new content for you. Creative juices are flowing and next week we are back to regularly scheduled programming. I have some exciting ideas that I’m looking forward to executing. For now though, please enjoy this weekend reading roundup of the best articles I found on the internet this week. I hope you enjoy and come back next week to see what I have in store for you!
The cooler temps have been sweeping through the windy city this past week, and as a result, I’ve been living in my gray teddy-like, sweater coat. This week’s Wish List is a roundup of some others I’ve been eyeing online lately!
It’s finally the weekend! I don’t know about you, but I feel like this week totally flew by. Unfortunately, I think the nonstop running around that’s been going on for a couple weeks now is finally catching up to me. My throat feels like it’s on fire and I feel like I could fall asleep at any second. My insides are warm but I am currently sitting at my desk with a jacket on because I’m freezing. I think I caught it…whatever it is I don’t know but it is coming. Ugh! I HATE being sick.
But, in good ole Sydney fashion, I have a jammed day with work, dinner in the city and then a Blackhawks game tonight, so sorry germs but ain’t nobody got time for you today. I hope you all have a nice relaxing weekend. If you find yourself looking for some entertainment, here are some fun articles, videos and trendy pieces I found on the internet this week. Enjoy!
To be completely honest, this week was crazy and my brain is officially fried…I know I usually take this time to ramble on about things happening in my life, but this week I’m going to cut the crap and get straight to the point because this girly needs a break. Just one of those weeks, ya know. Here are some of the best articles I found on the internet this week. If you find yourself bored over the next couple of days, this is a great list of fun and light weekend reading. Hope you enjoy!
