According to my new blogging schedule (!), Fridays are now dedicated to looking back on the previous week. In general, I try to keep my posts concise and to-the-point which, unfortunately, doesn’t leave much room for randomness. That’s where Friday’s posts come in- I’m giving myself free-range to share anything I’ve thought, experienced, and learned recently. An unfiltered “peek into my week”.
A Peek Into My Week 9/13-9/20:
Things I Did:
After falling into a rut of eating not-so-healthy, I decided to kick my butt into gear this week. I’m not on a diet- not even close- and I’m far from eating ‘clean’, but I needed a change. I felt yucky and my body was craving more fresh foods and less processed crap. So, I listened. I started with incorporating some green juices into my daily routine and, holy moly, I’m addicted. Too bad these suckers are $6/bottle.
2. Wined & dined with an old friend
One of my best friends from high-school is going to film school out in LA and we’ve yet to truly reconnect since she’s been here. We had a girl’s night last night, complete with homemade pasta/salad/wine, and it was absolutely perfect. We’ve both grown and changed so much and yet it feels like we were never apart. True friendship is one of the most beautiful things ever.
If I close my eyes and think reeaaally hard, it almost feels like Fall. Out come the candles. Naturally.
4. Found an exception to the ‘no white after Labor Day’ rule
Subtle and chic, just the way I like it. Thank you, Chanel, for your over-priced nail polish.
5. Rediscovered my ripped jeans
I can’t say that I’m a fan of this summer’s “grunge” trend but I have rekindled my love for destroyed denim. And denim jackets. And denim on denim. Okay, I’m done saying denim now.
Things I Learned:
1. I don’t like pumpkin spice lattes and I’m not alone
2. Conquering fear IS possible (article)
3. Whole Food’s really is a cult (article)
4. They’re remaking The Sound of Music…with Carrie Underwood (article)
5. Disney Princesses officially ‘wear the pants’ (article)
Welp, that’s that. My week in review. The entertainment industry really is feast or famine…one week I can’t keep up with the auditions/jobs and the next there are none to be found. Obviously this week was the latter. Ah well- on to the next! I’ll be back next Friday for [read: scheduled] installment #2.
Here’s to another 7 days of possibility…
