Happy Monday, y’all! How was your weekend? If you’re off today, I am insanely jealous. I have tomorrow off, but I’m working today and wishing I was out on the lake. On the bright side, I got another day out of my hair before needing to wash it, I remembered to pack my breakfast and lunch for today, and it’s monthly coffee date time!
Grab a cup of coffee, and let’s catch up!
Getting my health under control • The air was out in my office for over two weeks, and I ended up having some issues with my chronic illness because of the amount of time I spent in the heat. On Thursday, I bought a bunch of healthy foods, and on Saturday, when I was too sick to attend my best friend’s gender reveal party, I knew I really needed to kick it into high gear. I bought even more healthy food and cleaned my fridge out last night, and I’ve been looking for new recipes to try so that I’m not eating chicken, rice, and veggies for every meal. I’ll be chronicling my progress on here and on Instagram Stories (username is seersuckersass over there, too) for accountability.
Taking blog photos again • I shot fashion content three days in a row over the weekend! Taking photos in public used to really stress me out, but I’m starting to have fun with it and feel more confident. Honestly, I feel really self-absorbed having someone follow me with a camera, and I’m working to get over that.
Style Your Mind accountability group • I bought Style Your Mind back in February as a birthday gift to myself, and I haven’t made it as far as I would like to. The book is on sale right now, so I thought it might be fun to start an accountability group if anyone was interested. Are you in?
Making tough decisions • I quit Junior League a little over a week ago. Junior League is something that I knew I wanted to join immediately out of college, but I wasn’t invited to join until two years later. (I honestly had no idea that I could just fill out a form and join Junior League.) I spent two years in League, and I really enjoyed my experience. But I realized that something had to give from my schedule. I’m sad that my membership was such a short one, and I’m extremely grateful for the leadership and training opportunities I received through the organization. If you’re considering joining Junior League, I encourage you to do so!
Trying to become a morning person • The hot yoga/barre studio near me is finally opening up at the end of this month! I want to take morning classes a couple of days a week before I go into work. If you have any suggestions for how I can become a morning person, please send them my way!
Lake house adventures • I spent my first weekend in the completed lake house two weekends ago, and I can’t wait for my next lake house adventure! The house is absolutely gorgeous, and so well lit that my first thought was that I couldn’t wait to shoot blog photos there! Haha. I also really appreciate the spotty phone reception; it’s nice to unplug for a bit!
Shopping the sales • There are so many amazing sales going on right now! Since sales can be overwhelming sometimes, I’ve picked out the best sales and some of the best pieces under $100 from each sale. (And I’ve linked some pieces at the bottom of this post, as well!)
