7.18 | high five for friday!


(ONE) i’ve been doing some major purging of my apartment this week.  it’s very therapeutic.  i didn’t realize how much crap i had accumulated.  i went through a bunch of stuff.  if i hadn’t used it in the past year or didn’t like it anymore, it lost a spot in my life.  i now have a big pile of things to donate and some more openness in my apartment. i thought i might hate doing all of that, but it’s been a great thing.  i’m only a six months late on my spring cleaning…


(2)  i got back into the groove with my fitness this week after being on vacation.  i dragged my feet though.  it was a mental game there for awhile.  i just need to suffer with it for a few days before it feels like routine again.  i’ve been eating out too much, but i’ve made that okay by sticking with clean eating when i’m at home.


(three)  my july birchbox was amazing!  i love the cynthia rowley lip stain and the naobay lotion.  the whole box is like a spa in a box!  i used the beauty protector hair mask this week and it’s amazing.  i’m going to try the real chemistry peel and the skyn iceland eye gels this weekend.  {interested in birchbox?  click HERE.}


(4) i had a pleasant surprise on my instagram the other day.  i tried one of kate’s (from the small things blog) hairstyles and hashtaged my instagram photo a couple of weeks ago.  and she “liked” it.  i was actually wearing the same hairstyle the day she liked it.


(FIVE)  i had coffee with a friend this week, a long walk with another friend and her dogs, a little time with my mama, and a visit with my cousin and niece.  i needed some girl time, and i got it.  i also got to spend some time with the guy i’m dating.  as my mama says, he makes me smile and that’s all that matters right now.  🙂
