Beautiful Distractions No. 5

Mercury Retrograde has made me want to Amazon Prime a helmet to my front door, sage my home and hang heeling crystals all around my body. As soon as my accountant started yelling at me about my taxes last Tuesday and The Boy’s travel plans got majorly snafooed, I knew something had to be afoot. Do you believe in Mercury Retrograde? Do you do anything to twart the confusion? I think I’ll just stay in bed, shop online, and watching the remaining DVR episodes of Little Big Lies.  I wanted to finish reading the book first, but didn’t have the patience. Confession…I’m a slow reader….I don’t know why, but it puts me to sleep. I also heard I need to This Is Us. Here’s what else I’m loving lately.

Let’s Talk Swimsuits —The One Piece

Anyone else in the I hate shopping for swimsuits boat? Raise your hand high.

Mix that whole batch of awfulness together, and you got my attitude towards shopping for swimwear. There’s nothing quite like walking into a fitting room with 27 suits in hand, sausaging myself  into each, and inevitably leaving empty handed with a frowny face.

Beautiful Distractions No. 4

Dear diary, it’s been over a week since my last blog post…ahhh! You guys! I’m so sorry. And I was smashing that post once a week New Year’s Resolution. The job that pays the bills came down on me hard with a crazy deadline for a new client website. Everything needed to be designed and coded in a matter of days for a presentation. And darn it, it broke my streak. But, after pulling a few all-nighters and a couple glasses of wine, I’m back baby and ready to share whats been distracting me lately.
