Five on Friday


::: 1 :::
I spent most of the week at a work conference in Palm Springs. I love any work trip that doesn’t require a flight because it just makes life so much easier. It  was really nice to have my own car and be able to go home right after the conference was done. I will say though, I always think its going to be so fun to be in a hotel room alone, eat out, and just enjoy the peace…but it’s never as fun as I think it is. Plus, the three days of eating at restaurants non-stop have me feeling sluggish and gross I really need to take a solid break from white shit and sugar!

Keep your eyes out at Target for this wide brim white fedora. I had spent months looking for a hat just like this and I was willing to pay like 6x the price. I liked J.Crew’s version but the brim just wasn’t wide enough for what I was looking for and looked too fedora-y, so when I stumbled on this one for $15 dollars, I basically hit the jackpot. Plus, two different girls at the pool came up and asked me where I got, so that always helps boost the ego!

I happened to catch Kim Richards on Dr. Phil on the treadmill after work on Tuesday, and HOLY COW, homegirl is a mess! She fully admitted to drinking within the last three years, pluspopping pills “every once and a while”.  She was super diva-y and very quick to make sure we all knew that she wasn’t using while on the show (like that mattered), but overall she was just a train wreck. Lisa Rinna must be just dying! She took a major beating at the reunion and all of her worries and concerns about Kim were totally validated.

Are you snapchatting? I’m not sure how I feel about it but I tried to snap a lot while I was away this week and it’s actually kind of fun and a little weird (tshields622). My favorite people to follow are CattSadler and DamselinDior – they've got some damn cool lives.

I have my eyes on next week like whoa! We have a doctor’s appointment which I’m literally counting down the seconds for, my birthday, a trip to Vancouver, Mother’s Day and my Dad’s birthday - plus, we celebrated my sister Hannah's 25th birthday yesterday! We are packing in quite a punch lately.

invest in people.


  1. I would LOVE to know how Lisa Rinna feels!

  2. I have been on the Lisa R. side of the fens the entire time! Kim has been such a loney tune the past couple years! I was wondering if it was just me thinking that!

  3. I'm pretty sure I'm too old for snapchat. Palm Springs is uber cool. Yay for doctor's appointments for good reasons!!!

  4. You look so great in that pool selfie! & I for sure have to look for that hat at my target!
