The price I pay for all of that fun I had in Chicago? A cold.
It was still worth it, but every time I go to Chicago, the only souvenir I bring back is a damn cold. I think my body is very used to my schedule; working out, eating somewhat well, going to sleep early, etc...that 6 days of the opposite sends me into a tailspin.
I am happy to see the summer months behind us. For some reason, I just wasn't into summer this year. Who knows why, but I for one cannot wait to embrace all things fall! It's still hot here, and will be for most of September, but football is back and it will soon be socially acceptable to start breaking out the fall decorations!
Personally, there is a lot going on in my life behind the scenes. Some good, some bad, and everything in between. Whenever things start to feel way out of my control, I try to find ways to center my thoughts. My anxiety can get the best of me, so I really have to practice positive thinking. Right now I'm in the middle of The Magic, and it's been a really helpful way to focus on all of the good things and keep my energy positive.
Joel and I are going to New York in October, and we will only be there for a few nights so I'm collecting restaurant reccomendations. My girl Mallory has been a huge help (Joel's front runner's are Spice Market and The Spotted Pig) but I thought I'd see if you all had any favorites in the city? One night will be just Joel and I and then other night we are looking for something a little more casual to go to with his brother and sister-in-law. Throw your recs my way!!
I am about the oppisote of a make-up pro, but my sister Nellie did my makeup for me on Saturday night for the wedding, and she preached the wonders of a highlighter brush. I don't like to wear a lot of product on my face besides a light highlighter, but this bad boy was amazing. I tried to find it at CVS with no such luck, so I'm hunting down Target next week to add it to my collection.
She also said I'm in need of new brushes, liquid eyeliner pen, and better eyeshadow.
I figure if my hot soroity-going, 21 year old sister says it's a must, it's probably a must.
Have a great weekend!
