This has been a week full of ups and downs! The weather has been absolutely beautiful, and I have been trying to spend lots of time soaking up the sun and fresh air outside. But on one of my trips back inside, the elevator we have in our house broke! I know it sounds bougie to say that we have an elevator, but it is the only way for me to get to all of the levels of our house without needing to be carried, so I consider it a necessity rather than a luxury. I can get to certain floors by going outside and around the back/side of the house, but let me tell you, that’s not so fun at 7 AM when you’ve just woken up!
Happily, it was able to be fixed the next day in the afternoon, but it really did make the week feel like a bit of a roller coaster ride. Fingers crossed for a smoother weekend!
Now, this week’s favorites.
I thought that this article was a great resource. We’ve been spending so much time weighing risks and making decisions about what is/isn’t safe to do after the past year, but obviously, things change when you’ve been vaccinated! This is a good overview of what you can do with no worries, and what you should still think about avoiding for now.
Okay, this house is gorgeous and I would like to move in. It’s one of those things where it would not typically be my style, but the way they decorated just makes it seem to welcoming and homey and inviting. They also give a fun interview!
I’m very intrigued by this lipstick/lip gloss combination. It’s compared to Clinque’s Black Honey, which I also love, but with a few more color options. I’m very tempted to check it out!
Isabel on HBO Max
Isabel Allende is one of my absolute favorite authors, so I was very excited to discover that HBO made a miniseries about her! This is going to the very top of my weekend watch list – I’ll let you know what I think!
