Ten Things for the Weekend

December 22, 2017

1. This week’s mantra: “We’re kind of teaching our kids that happiness is the default position — it’s rubbish. Wholeness is what we ought to be striving for and part of that is sadness, disappointment, frustration, failure; all of those things which make us who we are. Happiness and victory and fulfillment are nice little things that also happen to us, but they don’t teach us much… I’d like just for a year to have a moratorium on the word “happiness” and to replace it with the word “wholeness.” Ask yourself, “is this contributing to my wholeness?” and if you’re having a bad day, it is.” -Hugh MacKay

2. If you’re still looking for some holiday cookie recipes I just made vegan & gluten-free gingerbread cookies and chocolate crinkle cookies that turned out so great!

3. Such an important reminder from Bossladies for fellow creatives making their way. This resonated so deeply for me and I always love it when people open up and share a piece of their hearts like this.

4. So many folks are getting super creative with their Instagram posts these days. Did you see this one from @marylauren or this one from @bluebirdkisses?

5. As a self-employed, one woman show, I know I for one am feeling super burnt out as the end of the year approaches. If you are too I highly recommend reading this. Really helped to give me some ideas on ways I can create more of a healthy balance with my time.

6. Are you guys subscribed to the Women Wanting More podcast? She shares 3 episodes a week that are usually around 15 minutes long, perfect for a quick walk, and are always the perfect little boost of motivation to start the day.

7. Have any of you other influencers and bloggers been keeping up with the Fohr Card YouTube channel? The last two we’re SO GOOD.

8. Just booked my first appointment at Drybar since we left NYC in May for Christmas Eve. Still the PERFECT gift for any lady in your life if you’re looking for a very last minute gift – email that gift certificate and call it a day!

9. The tee Owen is wearing in this photo was a sweet gift from Dearest Kjaere and I SERIOUSLY want one in my size. Super comfy, handmade and the perfect fit!

10. I just started This is Us and I’m getting really, really into it. If you need me, that’s where I’ll be. Happy weekend & happy *almost* Christmas!
