Weekend Links / / Stretchy Vines

IMG_2102

^ A typical breakfast, always with lots of coffee.

This week took it out of me. Working retail during holiday season is fun, but so busy! It’s after I got home from work each day that I realized my body just couldn’t do anything else. Thankfully, I have tomorrow off. 🙂 I’m looking forward to sleeping past 5 am and spending the day exploring Nashville with Jordan.

Onto the links! (If you want to see more of what I read this week, follow me on Bloglovin’. I always click “like” on my favorites.)

/ / When I saw A Cup of Jo post six stretches for people who sit at desks I immediately saved it to show my husband. I don’t sit at a desk all day, but Jordan does and he suffers from back pain from time to time. Taking a break to do light stretches is attainable, it just has to become habit.

/ / Speaking of Jordan, earlier this week he shared a series of videos with me. Buzzfeed complied several vines Katie Ryan filmed of her daughter, Ava. Ava is hilarious and clearly attuned to what is said around her. My favorite clip is Halloween themed.

/ / I read posts and laugh, but sometimes I read posts and cry. Tj reminded me that I need to be kind to myself. This season of life has brought some really hard moments, but at the end of the day I’m still beautiful, kind and smart.

/ / I recently discovered Erin’s blog and I’m obsessed with her 21 Day Experiment concept. The experiment for November is a fashion remix: 21 outfits created by 21 items. I’ve toyed with the idea of creating a capsule wardrobe, but honestly our weather is really unpredictable and I’m not ready to commit to anything for three months. This capsule light version still encourages creativity, which is ultimately the goal, but is only three weeks long.

Happy Weekend!

  1. I used to schedule into my calendar reminders to do those deck stretches!! Seriously, desk and computer 24/7 make for such bad necks, shoulders and backs.
    I also like the idea of ‘capsule light’ – it’s gone from 70 degrees in the middle of last week to 30 degrees this week, so making one capsule for ‘autumn’ would be tough. Will check out your shares!!
    Enjoy your lie-in tomorrow and I hope you have a restful weekend! 🙂

    1. It’s kind of scary how they say all our sitting is slowly killing us! I think autumn and spring are the hardest to figure out. Even though we’re “the south” its currently in the 30s! Not exactly the weather I would expect for fall. … haha

  2. Ooh I need those stretches NOW! You’ve shared some awesome links here. And by the way, have you heard of Project 333? The point is to wear 33 items in 3 months (some exclusions such as undergarments, athletic wear, etc.) It’s pretty cool too! Might be a better option because you can make your capsule wardrobe seasonal 🙂

    If you’re interested, I did sort of a whirlwind Project333 this summer while we were moving… here’s the URL: http://simplicityrelished.com/wardrobe-project-333-and-the-challenge-of-minimalist-fashion/

  3. Oooh, desk stretching is something I need to do more of. I only work a few days out of the house but I definitely feel awful after sitting all day! Thanks for linking up!

  4. These are great links! I really needed the desk stretching. I have to remember to keep doing them. Or just getting up and walking away from my desk. And that little girl is WAY too cute.

  5. Oh my gosh, those videos of the little girl are HILARIOUS. I just sent the link to all of my girl friends with little girls. Glad you got some time off this weekend to explore! 🙂
