Hi from the sky!
I am currently blogging from the plane as I make the journey back to Florida from California. My time in San Francisco has been incredible and I only wish I had a few more days in the city to wander around and explore. It’s such a fun place and I’m determined to come back with Ryan one day. (We are dying to visit wine country together!)
For as much as I love traveling (and I loooove traveling!), it always feels good to be home and I’m ready to see my family and get smothered with sloppy Sadie kisses! I still have a brief layover ahead of me, but I’ll be back in Jacksonville around dinnertime and I’m more than ready to relax and catch up on sleep.
But for now, let’s chat about things we’re loving this week!
Things I’m Loving Friday
This thing is amazing. It totally saved my muscles after last Saturday’s races and I cannot believe I’ve waited so long to have this baby in my life. Rolling it along my muscles feels like a deep tissue massage and I love that I can easily roll it over my quads, hamstrings and calves while I sit on the couch. It’s easy to do yourself but it feels even better if you can talk someone into doing it for you. Ryan and I took turns rolling it over each other’s muscles before I left for San Francisco and I swear I almost drooled. If you love (or love to hate) the foam roller, I have a feeling you will adore this!
- Brookside Dark Chocolate with Pomegranate
This candy is so delicious. I love grabbing a small handful to eat after dinner. A perfect little sweet treat!
At the Stitch Fix headquarters and warehouse, employees can grab a bunch of different snacks and beverages to enjoy for free throughout the day. (Amazing, right?) During our visit, I think I drank 5,000 bottles of Hint. I fell in love with the honeydew flavor because it’s so refreshing and clean-tasting.
Apparently I live under a rock because I only recently learned about theSkimm, a daily e-mail newsletter that shares snippets about current events – across subject lines and party lines – and breaks everything down with fresh editorial content. It removes a lot of the “fluff” and gives you a basic rundown of what’s going on in the world, often in a quirky, entertaining way. If you don’t have the time or desire to watch the news or read a newspaper it’s a great way to get a quick glimpse at major headlines every day. (You can see the today’s Skimm here.)
I’ve heard the concept of a blow dry bar before but up until yesterday afternoon I had never experienced one myself. Stitch Fix and LUNA arranged for our group to get blow outs before a fun photo shoot (more on that soon!) and I had a wonderful time relaxing and chatting with the woman who did my hair while I sipped hot peppermint tea. I went for a softer look and a lot of it ended up falling within a few hours, but my hair has a hard time maintaining curl and volume so that is to be expected.
Here’s a sneak peek at the end result four hours after we left the salon:
My end result wasn’t anything too fancy, but anytime someone will massage my scalp and do my hair for me, I am a happy camper!
I am in love with this snack! The flaky coconut. The slightly spicy cashews. The bold flavors. I need more of it in my life!
