Weekly Roundup

February 28, 2020

Parisian Balcony I wit & whimsy

This week started off with a bang when my site was compromised and starting showing up in a foreign language or for a Chinese electronics website for some people. There’s no words to describe  how you feel when this happens. It is truly nauseating. By Tuesday morning it was happening again when I had sponsored content live. I nearly cried on the street corner that morning when I realized as I was on my way to a shoot and couldn’t work with my host to resolve it immediately. It took an emergency migration to a new host that then caused more of the site being down and also caused other elements of my site design to be off to help resolve the malware issues I was having. By Wednesday morning when I woke up I realized the post I had stayed up late doing Tuesday evening had been totally erased and I had to race to get it re-done and live at 7:30AM on Wednesday morning.

By Tuesday I had also woken up with a viral infection that later landed me in bed all of Wednesday & Thursday. To say I feel fried would be an understatement. Between an insane schedule in Paris to last weekend’s bachelorette party I have had next to no sleep and no downtime. Life has felt like a treadmill that only gets faster and never slows down of late. I guess getting sick was a way of my body pressing pause for me when I felt I couldn’t.  I had to cancel more than a dozen appointments and meetings and now feel extremely behind. Le sigh…Mercury sure is in retrograde, isn’t it!?

I hope you enjoy this week’s roundup and have a wonderful weekend!


  • I did my first podcast recording! Shani Silver was kind enough to ask me to be on her podcast A Single Serving and I hope I did ok! It’ll be out in March and I’ll share when it is live.
  • Remained horizontal at home trying to feel better.

    I’m so sorry that your week was so rough! Even though canceling royally sucks and I also hate feeling behind, sometimes our bodies force us to slow down for our own good. I hope you get fully recuperated over the weekend and hit the ground running next week!
    Do you have a link/source for the hair barrettes in your leading photo? I checked LTKI but didn’t see them. They’re so cute! Happy Friday, friend! 🙂

    I tried leaving a comment on one of yours posts this week and was wondering why it wouldn’t publish! I’m sorry you had to go through that and I’m glad the site is back up! Hope you get some rest this weekend!

    omg I just saw that you will be on A Single Serving — I was thinking about emailing Shani to recommend you for the podcast, based on your “Single in 30s” post, and I’m so glad to see you two have already recorded and episode!
