sunday spotlights 5
Happy Sunday, loves! Last week was a DOOZY, huh?! You’d think by this point in 2020 we’d be used to lots of bad news, but this week still threw me for a loop. I was feeling really down about navigating everything, but my haircut on Friday lifted my spirits SO MUCH. Then yesterday, I really grounded myself by sleeping in a little, cleaning the apartment, getting a workout, taking an extra dose of CBD oil and journaling. And through journaling, I came up with some shifts I can make so this next week is a way better one. Is anyone else having a hard time with the balance of staying informed and maintaining self care? (Let me know in the comments if you can relate!) Now, on to links…
Sunday Spotlights 5
You know that I’ve been loving Glow Screen recently, but I recently tried their Unseen Sunscreen and Play Sunscreen too, and I’ve realized I’m just a huge fan of everything they make. Clean products and non greasy? Yes please!
We finally watched Knives Out this week and LOVED IT. It’s on Amazon Prime right now and I highly recommend it!
I recently came across this Instagram about how to sync your workouts with your cycle – and then I found an article on their website that elaborates on it more. I’m going to test out this theory moving forward and see if I can feel a difference at all!
Speaking of workouts, this class was a low impact choice for this week… but that doesn’t mean it was easy! I swore out loud multiple times ? SO GOOD.
A 30 year old died of coronavirus this week after going to a COVID party – where people get together to see if the virus is real and if anyone gets infected. His last were “”I think I made a mistake. I thought this was a hoax, but it’s not.” Wow.
My friend Ali launched a new kids collection for her shop, Alice & Wonder. I mean, does it get any cuter?! Plus, they’re donating 15% of the proceeds to Chicago Birthworks. Love.
Anthony Ramos (John Laurens/Phillip in Hamilton) released a new music video this week for his song Mind Over Matter and it is SO GOOD. The video features his real life fiance, Jasmine Cephas Jones (Also from Hamilton! She played Peggy Schuyler and Maria Reynolds!) and they, ummm… definitely have chemistry 😉 Turn up the song and dance around NOW!
Have you seen Padma Lakshmi’s new show, Taste The Nation? If you haven’t, add it to your list!
I’ve been trying to buy Girlfriend bike shorts all summer and they keep selling out… but everyone raves about Alo shorts and they’re back in stock, so I might try those. They also have a new Alosoft short that sounds very inviting!
I’m honestly really proud of these cute little ice cream pies. They were so fun to make! (Get the recipe here.)
Because I don’t have my usual summer tan this year, I finally caved and bought these tanning drops. I’ve never used any self tanner at home so I was intimidated by all of the mousse options, but these drops are clean and can be mixed right into your lotion. I’ll report back after I try it!
Reese Witherspoon’s son released his first single this week. INTO it.
