This Week

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.

Talk to me – what’s new with you this week?  What outfit are you dreaming of wearing when the weather warms up?  For me, it’s a ballerina-inspired outfit of this dress and these flatssans tights.

    I’m with you on the refresh after a jam packed week! I’m currently on the hunt for a pair of floral printed harem pants. I need warmer weather, stat.

      Floral harem pants sound pretty amazing. Otte does great prints and harem pants – it’s only a matter of time before they combine the two.

      • Jessica

        I’ll have to check them out! Let’s hope they do!

      It ranks right up there with the NYFW diaries in terms of my favorite C&C posts :)

    I’m with you; this week has been the hermit version, since we just landed in NYC and are trying to figure out the whole “living in a hotel while working” concept. This move has been so jam-packed of tiny tasks I almost forget, I’m starting to think this Todoist app might be a necessity for me, too!

    • hithaonthego

      Welcome to NYC! And I use the Todoist for EVERYTHING – work and blog projects, trip planning, everything. It’s AMAZING.

  • Felicia Sullivan

    Thank you for including me, so appreciated! -f

    • hithaonthego

      Of course! I love your writing, and am honored to call you a friend.

  • Corporate Catwalk

    Love the catch up from this week! Cannot wait for our date on Friday. I seriously don’t thing the boys are going to be able to hang with us! PS. That tank is amazing. The eternal debate, which one do I love the most…wine vs. bacon. T- minus two days!

    • hithaonthego

      Can’t wait either! T-minus ONE day :)

  • Carol

    My big to-do this week has been cleaning out my gmail inbox and it’s down to 33 messages! Feels so good!
