Back with another Friday favorites weekly roundup.
FIVE FRIDAY FAVORITES
My New Couch!
If you follow me on Instagram, then you already know that I purchased a new couch during my week off. My old couch had a good run, but it was time for something new. I am so obsessed and in love with my new couch that I don’t even want to leave the house because I just want to spend all day lounging on it. It’s bigger than my last couch and a lot more comfortable. I love the sectional because it gives me the perfect corner to lounge and work on blog posts. Ugh, I’m just in love.
New Pant Silhouettes
Is this not one of the most unflattering photos of me? But, I was so in love with these pants I wanted to share. I’ve just been in the mood lately to try different pant fits like straight and crop wide leg, etc because I am just over basic skinny jeans. Will I still wear them? Yes, obviously. But, I’ve just been more open to try something different. I loved these pants that I picked them up in this pink and green. I actually ordered them on line to get the petite version so they will be more cropped on me. I also picked up these joggers that I’m really excited about.
Work/Life Balance :: After Work Dates
I mentioned last week that I started a new job this week and so far I have been loving it and really enjoying learning everything. Plus, the work/life balance has been great so far. At my previous job, I would leave around 7 or 8 and barely had time to eat when I got home before bed. But, so far, I’ve been getting out during normal hours and have actually had time to live my life. Yesterday, Eddie and I headed to Brookfield, by the WTC to have dinner. It’s been so long since we’ve had a little date so it was nice. We both got Umami burgers and fries and then walked to Fulton Place for bubble tea.
Gong Cha Bubble Tea
If you’re a long time follower, you know that I am ride or die for Vivi Bubble Tea, but recently I’ve been gravitating towards Gong Cha bubble tea. I’ve just been feeling like Vivi has been too sweet lately and the Gong Cha one has more flavor. They even have a lot of different varieties of other teas I want to try. I’m still a true Vivi fan, but I’ve been enjoying trying something different lately.
Canvas Tote Bag
I have a thing for small bags. Seriously, the smaller the better. So I like to carry my favorite crossbody to work, but it doesn’t always hold everything like my book and planner and essentials. I’ve been using like free canvas bags as my “extra” bag but I didn’t like how flimsy they were and I just wanted a good canvas bag to hold my extras. I picked this one up from a boutique at Turnstile in Columbus Circle and I absolutely love it. They have a bunch of different texts, but I really loved this New York one. So much so, that I also got the matching sweater and it comes in a tee as well. If you are ever in the Columbus Circle area, I highly recommend visiting Mulberry & Grand, they have so many cute pieces.
THIS WEEK WAS
I was really nervous to start my new job because it’s something new and unknown. Plus with my social anxiety, I just knew it was going to be a challenge and adjustment. But, honestly, I have really been loving it so far. I love my manager and I feel like I’m learning so much already and I just feel like it’s a good step in the right direction for my future. I know I have a long way to go and lots more to learn and to adjust to, but I’m feeling really excited and inspired and hopeful on what’s to come and taking it one day at a time.
I mentioned in last week’s Friday Favorites that my mind is fully on spring & vacation fashion. I’ve been doing a ton of online “window” shopping and wanted to share what I’m eyeing by retailer. Last week I shared my Abercrombie & Fitch and Urban Outfitters picks and this week I’m sharing my Nordstrom picks.
Watching… Trying to finish up my Marvel movie marathon with Eddie. We’re going to watch the second Avengers movie today.
Listening… R.I.P by Sofia Reyes, Rita Ora & Anitta, All I am by Jess Glynne and the new Jonas Brothers song Sucker have been on repeat.
Reading…Match Made in Manhattan. It’s pretty slow so far and I’m having a hard time connecting with it so I’ll keep you posted on my thoughts.
That’s all from me today!
Thank you so much for reading and stopping by. Hope you have a great weekend!
