Weekend Reading

pin

This week was a tough one.  Everything is just busy busy busy.  It’s the busiest time of year for both the blog and the day job, so I just feel a bit stretched thin.  But it’s all good.  I managed to meet a girlfriend for dinner at Almond, get to French class, and take my first Core Fusion class… so I did okay.  I didn’t sleep very much, but on Thursday I had a little epiphany at about midnight.  I was sitting on my couch, working on my blog (glass of wine in hand) and just thought how lucky I am.  I may be tired, but I really truly love what I do every day, and not very many people get to say that.  This weekend I may be overly ambitious as I am going to try to take two more Core Fusion classes.  We’ll see how sore I am… ha.

But anyway.  Some stuff I loved this week.

How to stay happy during the winter.

I thought this video (on body image) was fantastic…

This striped dress is so classic – just perfect.

Lulu Frost has an amazing GWP right now… (I’m obsessed with Donald Robertson)

I’m living in these cozy leggings.  Can you believe they were only $14!?

I drooled over Alicia’s Vintage Chanel photos

I love this little ruffled dress… and this leather + lace one too!

An honest post about what blogging is really like during the holidays.  This really resonates with me right now.

I want one of these pretty little fur snoods… Molly & Sally always find the best stuff.

Clara launched a gorgeous new site… so proud of her.

This post made me want to take a bath.  Right now.

This sounds amazing:  spiked cinnamon hot chocolate.

The Dreslyn is having a huge sale.  Take 50% off.  I’m loving this Rag & Bone Sweatshirt and this pullover + tuxedo blazer (both by Iro.)

Lastly… make sure you enter my giveaway with Carbon 38 – its a good one!

    I love your blog as well, I’ve been blogging for almost a year and as my readership grows it’s incredible how much time and effort must go into it. But I’m really glad that you recognize how great it is you’re able to do something you love everyday. A lot of people are afforded that luxury. :D you seem like a very honest and real person. Keep it up (a always drink a second glass of wine if you think you need it ;)

    I know it’s hard to count your blessings when everything in life isn’t peachy-keen, but you are SO fortunate to do what you love everyday! It’s something a lot of people take for granted until they land in a job that is not meant for them (hand raised over here). Not only does it sound like you have a great gig, but you have SO many readers who love what you bring to your blog daily. Your blog is my first destination after I have made my morning coffee. Keep your head up through the good days and bad, and hopefully you will get some time to relax after the holidays :)

    You have a great list of links here, and I am honored to be one of them. I think the key to us getting through times like this in blogging is exactly what you said in your first paragraph – realizing how lucky we really are. It’s like how they say if you are sad, force yourself to smile and it will actually cause you to feel happier; I’ve found this month to concentrate on the amazing things in my life and it gives me such a happier outlook and reminds me of how lucky I really am. Keep rocking with your fabulous self, Grace! <3
