What a week it was! It flew by but we’ve made it to Friday. I’m spending my day doing administrative stuff for my consulting business and then tonight I am working on finishing all the backend updates for wit & whimsy because…the new site is launching next week! (If all goes as planned). That being said, you’ll notice the site will be down for a bit on Monday as we prepare for it to go live Tuesday.
I also wanted to let you guys know that starting next week the Weekly Roundup will be live on Saturdays! I have so much content that you can expect six posts per week through the end of the year.
I hope you have a great weekend! Thank you so much for stopping by – you guys make all the work here worthwhile <3.
WHAT I DID THIS WEEK:
- Finally checked out Sundays Nail Studio with my friend Jaime. It’s super chic!
- Shot some of my neighborhood favorites for an upcoming post – I’m excited to share with you guys my charming ‘hood.
- Had dinner with girlfriends at Olea and it was so good!
- Listened to the Spotify “Relax & Unwind” playlist practically on repeat. Don’t know if you guys are familiar but it is so, so good. It’s been keeping me company during a lot of late nights spent working in my cozy apartment.
- Treated myself to a 75 minute massage and felt 100% lighter afterwards. Self care, ladies…self care.
- Worked a lot on the aforementioned website design. It’s been in the works for nearly a year!
