Weekly Roundup

June 26, 2020

Pink Peonies I @meghandono

This week was a doozy but for largely good reasons. I had a big lift on a client project that had me super busy and I also had numerous deadlines for a variety of collaborations on the wit & whimsy front. And it was HOT! Which always seems to add another layer of stress and sleepless nights. And sleep has been very hard to come by lately between the constant illegal fireworks going off at 1, 2 and 3AM and the anxiety of my apartment hunt.

Now that NY’s shelter in place has lifted (we entered Phase 2 this past week here in the city) it felt hopeful for a brief moment that life may resume some normalcy, but it’s scary to see other parts of the country continuing to have rising cases. As a result, I have every plan to continue taking all precautions. I still wear a mask every time I leave the house and always have gloves and hand sanitizer at the ready. I do plan to take some time off next week though as we head into the holiday weekend. I’ve been creating content every day in some capacity since shelter in place started mid-March and very much feel like my brain needs a break. You’ll hear from me less often as a result and I hope you, too can enjoy some R&R in the coming week.

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


  • Finally created a Facebook group for wit & whimsy readers! I always lamented about doing so as I’m not a big user of Facebook personally but after seeing fellow blogging friends build further community by doing so I decided I really wanted you all to “meet” so to speak! I hope you’ll join the group and use it as a place to get recommendations, chat with likeminded people and just have a place to connect with one another! Thanks so much to those of you who joined right away! (I was scared no one would – lol!)
  • Finished the book Anna K. It was a fun Gossip Girl-esque read about high schoolers.
  • Wrote a little love letter to my neighborhood.
  • Voted! New York’s Primary was on June 23rd. Are you registered to vote? If not you can do so in 2 minutes here.
  • Shared my new morning skincare routine. After doing a skincare consultation earlier this month I had some really good takeaways and have been so happy with my new revised routine. (I also learned I’d been using my Vitamin C serum wrong – whoops!)

    Loved the article about moving! I just moved and honestly even though it’s been good, I was petrified for a while that I wouldn’t like the new place, etc. It’s so important to remember that you can always move again and that life is about the journey, not the destination!

    Also you’ve convinced me to book a Caudalie consultation! Have a great weekend!

    I don’t think you’ve ever lived in the same apt for more than a year (of course some of the years it was beyond your control)! May I ask why you’re moving again?
