January 2019 - Happy New Year!
COOKING - oatmeal for my sick kiddo.
DRINKING - Starbucks…always Starbucks!
READING - The Woman I Wanted To Be by Diane von Furstenberg. I’ve picked this up a few times before and never got further than 5 pages in but this time it stuck and I’m so glad it did because I am thoroughly enjoying it! DVF is iconic and elegant and an incredibly fierce badass!
WANTING - more “light” hours in the day - isn’t it supposed to start getting darker later now?! I feel like it’s pitch black until 9 a.m. most mornings and the evening darkness is still creeping in before 6:00.
LOOKING - forward to celebrating my hubby’s birthday this week!
PLAYING - My Favorite Murder, Minisode 106. #SSDGM
WISHING - my little Bubbs was feeling better! He has such a wicked cough.
ENJOYING - A DONUT! All caps because that’s how much I’m enjoying it!
LIKING - cozy nights on the couch with Netflix and my sweets. It’s been ridiculously cold outside lately so staying in and snuggling up is where it’s at!
LOVING - Maggie Rogers. Swooning with the rest of the world over this ultra-talent!
WONDERING - what to get my husband for his birthday.
HOPING - for a great concert to be announced at Red Rocks this summer so we can plan a road trip to our fave spot!
NEEDING - a blowout. Maintaining extensions involves a lot of arm work and I usually like to outsource for that lol!
SMELLING - tiny hints of perfume notes from my recent consultation with Zingaro Private Label. You have not lived until you’ve smelled true, pure oakmoss.
WEARING - my standard Mother jeans (high-waisted looker in Blackbird - I have 3 pairs, they should basically be renamed The Mandy at this point) and a cozy grey Wildfox sweater for a cozy day indoors.
FOLLOWING - @AOC’s every tweet. She has such powerful energy.
NOTICING - a few stray boxes of Christmas stuff that haven’t been put away yet - oops! Hope everyone had a merry & joyful holiday season!!
THINKING - about my family’s dog, Mylo, who passed away last November. Today would have been his 13th birthday. He was 5 lbs of fluff and attitude and he was loved so much.
OPENING - the latest issue of ELLE, straight to Ask E. Jean. No one tells it quite like E. Jean does and I am always here for it!!
FEELING - like one coffee might not be enough to survive this gloomy Monday!
