After an amazing California trip last week, I had a hard time coming back to the winter weather, but things perked up when one of my friends had the cutest little baby boy. I spent a day cuddling him, and it made me feel so much better. I’m pretty sure the kid has magical powers.
And then Beyoncé made her big announcement, and everything was truly right in the world again!
This weekend, I’m shooting an exciting project that I’ve been working on for a few months, so be sure to visit the blog on Monday to see what I’ve been up to! In addition to work, we have some fun plans. My closest childhood friend is in town so I’ll get to see her for brunch before we head to another friend’s house for Super Bowl festivities.

Bad lip reading. These videos always crack me up. I realize I’m a bit behind in sharing this bad lip reading compilation from inauguration day, but it makes me laugh so hard, I had to include it! Watch the video.
Bye bye, brassiness. I have this problem where every time I get my hair highlighted, it turns brassy within about four weeks. I’ve gone to multiple colorists, and it’s the same problem each time. Someone suggested that I try filtering my shower water as it might be a chemical in the water that’s causing the damage. I recently switched to an AromaSense shower head and so far, no brassiness! I can’t believe I waited so long to do this. I got this one but removed the aromatherapy piece because I like to shower at night and the lemon was too up-lifting. Shop it here.
What is feminism anyway? Grace wrote a beautiful piece about what it means to be a feminist in her mind. It was eloquently written and hit the nail on the head, in my opinion. I feel lucky to call her my friend! Read the post.
Recipe of the week. This weekend is going to be full of unhealthy choices for many. I love a good Superbowl Sunday spread as much as the next guy, but this buffalo wing popcorn recipe will give you the flavors you love, minus a lot of the crap… Just some of it! Get the recipe.
Currently reading: Based on Grace’s recommendation, I’m almost finished with The Perfume Collector. It’s a beautiful story of two women whose lives intertwine in the most surprising of ways. Set in Paris, it’s giving me major wanderlust! Plus I’ve learned quite a bit about perfume making. Buy the book.
Currently bingeing: I realize I’m way late to the game here but I finally started Shameless and I’m totally hooked. Is anyone else a fan?
Monogram madness. I just discovered the cutest shop on Etsy. If you love monograms as much as I do, you’ll be a fan too! Shop here.
#BeyonceTwins. Unless you live under a rock, you know by now that Beyoncé is pregnant with twins. I was shocked when I saw her odd Instagram, but now I’m kind of diggin’ it! That picture is totally bizarre, and only Queen Bey could pull it off. Since then, the meme world has been blowing up. See a few of my favorites.
