Whenever I have a week of intense socializing, it needs to be followed up by a week of being a hermit.
That about sums up these past two weeks. My husband’s new project (read – no more Australia) has him in NYC, so it’s been so nice to spend weeknights together. We took in a documentary last night at my co-working space and are having a double date with Olivia and her fiance on Friday night. Mix in a lunch with Usha, a dinner with Hallie, and a visit from my BFF and her family on Saturday, and you have a pretty balanced week, combined with that whole day job of mine. Which will be consuming me next week.
Consider this week’s link roundup the blogger edition. What can I say? I’m buds with some incredibly talented writers.
- I’ve struggled with finding the right productivity tool (the notebook & Bullet Journal method bit the bullet a few weeks ago), so now I’m trying out Todoist. Victoria showed exactly how she uses this tool, and I know Lisa is a fan. I spent Sunday setting up projects (and sub-projects), and am taking my time to populate tasks. I’ll keep you posted how this goes…
- I rarely will buy multiple pairs of anything, but these flats from Grace’s collection with Matt Bernson was just too good. I dubbed them Bollywood in shoe form, and I stand by it. I never need another pair of shoes for any Indian formal event, ever. The fact that they’re immensely comfortable make them great travel and walking shoes as well. Bravo, Grace!
- Felicia just moved into a new home. Not only am I in love with her light-filled space, I’m also addicted to her meditations on creating a home. Given that we’re moving into a new apartment this spring, I couldn’t help but be inspired by her reflections.
- It takes a talented writer to combine heart disease awareness with an informative Q&A post. Hallie does that perfectly.
- Not a blogger referral, but this tank. It’s too good. But if we were going to list all my favorite foods, we’d be heading into maxi dress territory.
- I hope to possess a fraction of the grace, wisdom, and wit that Raluca has when I’m in my thirties. Following her tips seems like the perfect place to start.
