If you’re reading this in a feed reader or an email I suggest you view my blog in your browser to see the BRAND NEW LAYOUT I put up yesterday! As much as I loved my old layout, over time I was starting to feel it was a little too girly, a little too feminine for me. I’m super stoked with this current layout and I don’t envision it changing anytime soon
I’ve been scarce online this past week because I’ve been running around like a madwoman ever since getting back to DC after traveling to Alabama and Boston. I went to a few happy hours, saw the cherry blossoms, went to a hockey game and cheered on my beloved Chicago Blackhawks, enjoyed bottomless mimosas at brunch, and visited the Library of Congress. Not too shabby for a week’s work! There’s something absolutely energizing about the fact that SPRING IS FINALLY HERE!!! as I find myself wanting to spend less and less time indoors, facing a computer or a TV screen. I’m chalking this one up to a win, because goodness knows I spend way too much time plugged in. But I digress.
Break the Sky Around the Web
I have been obsessed with facial oils recently so I loved xoVain’s explanatory post about understanding oils for beauty.
Amy’s triple berry tarts LOOK DIVINE.
I’m planning on using green smoothies to solve my dual problems of not eating breakfast before work and not getting enough fruits and veggies in my diet. Melanie’s go-to green smoothie recipe sounds delicious.
Shelby’s post about fish and chips makes me wish I was back in London STAT.
Cassie shares how to know you’re becoming an Angeleno. I don’t know the first thing about LA but I had a similar moment recently about living in DC and realizing that I’ve basically become a local!
I loved reading about Jenn’s experience moving from DC to Montana. I can’t ever imagine I’d make a similar move as I’m a city girl myself but I’m fascinated by those that do!
Kelly was super creative and made an AWESOME house “leaving” gift for her mom when she moved out.
Sarah reminds us that everyone you ever love is going to hurt you. I needed reminding of this, particularly this past week, as it’s a cold, hard truth.
