FRIDAY! We made it! Despite heading back to the doc and being put on ROUND THREE of antibiotics, this week went by pretty quickly. Work has been slow the past few weeks and I do not know what to do with that, so I’m actually happy that things are picking back up again.
Four more work days, and I get to head back to the beach for one last long weekend out east. But before then, I have to deal with saying goodbye to my work wife/BFF/former manager/favorite person, as she moves to L.A. It’s a good thing I’m not an emotional person at all. /sarcasmfont
So let’s talk about happier things, shall we? Here’s some of my favorite reads/wants/shops/activities of this week:
The Lilly After Party Sale was Monday, and I obviously couldn’t resist stockpiling a little for next summer. I’m like a squirrel, really.

That thread and the ephemeral bubble of suspended reality are what encourages the bond to seal quickly.”
How to control which ads you see in your newsfeed. I do this almost surgically, and I also love clicking the dropdown that says “Why am I seeing this ad?” to see what kind of targeting these companies are using. Especially work competitors…
Strawberry frosé, HELLO.
Why you need to take a lunch break. I eat at my desk every single day, which I know is not good. However, I also run out in the afternoon to walk my dog, so I tell myself that’s my break? But I know I should eat away from my desk even a bit more. We have a lunch table at the office that a lot of my coworkers do eat at, and I should join them more often.
