Let It Be Sunday

Let It Be Sunday

Let It Be Sunday

There’s a bag of potato chips in my pantry that I’m trying to ignore because I have no willpower whatsoever.  That’s my update.  What’s going on with you?

Here’s what’s on my Internet mind:

•  A new friend sent me a link to this TED Talk about how  Your Body Language Shapes Who You Are.  I promptly put the method to the test by standing like a super boss lady in my bathroom for two minutes, then going to a car dealership to buy a car.  Yea…. talk about intimidation.  I feel like arms akimbo worked!  At the very least I was conscious of my own body language, I kept my shoulders strong and confident, and I negotiated financing rates like I know what a finance rate is….   Fake it until you become it!  Repeat x infinity.

Follow-up:  being a grown lady is like… really?  Me?  Now?  How?

•  Because I can never watch just one TED Talk, I followed body language up with A Kinder Gentler Philosophy of Success.  Alain de Botton first addresses the Sunday Stresses and talks about the merits of a meritocracy.

•  I can never go too long without talking about nail polish.  My absolute favorite polish is Revlon Colorstay Gel Envy nail polish.  If you’re a polish-y kind of person you must try this stuff!  The colors are bold and modern, and the polish is thick (without being gross thick) making it easy to coat your nails in saturated color in two coats.  No gel heaters needed.  No fight getting the polish off.  I’m really into it!

•  These Free People Platform Shoes are calling my name.  I’ll have to start putting dollar bills in ye old piggy bank.

•  Boy oh boy,  sometimes the Internet just blows me away.  Remember, a few years back, before Instagram existed?  What were our cellphones even for back then if not constantly flipping through picture updates?  Fortune has a fascinating look inside Instagram’s rise to popularity and how corporations are desperately trying to monetize everything everywhere:  Instagram Is Ready To Take Its Shot.

•  I’ve been revisiting Michael Jackson’s Off The Wall aaallll week long!  Few things are better.

•  I’m completely enamored with these beeswax cloth food storage wraps.  I use them to wrap loaves of bread I’ve sliced into.  They’re cloth coated in a thin layer of beeswax, jojoba oil, and tree resin creating a really cool re-usable storage option.  I like very much.

•  Let’s throw a S’mores Party for real!

•  Are people still paying for Twitter followers?  Fake Friends With Real Benefits. Wait… is this because we care about our Klout scores?  Can’t be.  Social media is the weirdest thing.

•  I’m very serious about my caramel and these Sea Salt Caramels with Dark Chocolate are absolutely the best chocolate and caramel combination I’ve ever had.  I mean whoa!  It’s a good thing I ate them all or I’d still be eating them… all.

Happy Sunday!  Let’s chill on the Sunday Stresses.  Wine helps, as do french fries.

  1. Happy Happy Sunday! I think I have the same bag of potato chips in my pantry. Cannot get them out of my mind.

    1. I second that! I’ve been looking for a navy bridesmaid dress to go with cowboy boots, so of course I was hoping you had a link. Would you mind sharing a little more?

  2. Free people is always calling my name… you and me both. There’s one in my mall and the clearance section says “great deals under $128″. I laugh… and cry. Those caramels look sublime, and the fact that they’re shaped vaguely like pb cups is giving me some false hope that I can recreate them. Happy Sunday!

  3. I so much look forward to LET IT BE SUNDAY its like a breath of fresh air that gets you ready for the week to come or a relaxing day from the hectic week that just passed. Love your dress, you look happy in New Orleans (not that you never looked happy) but you look content. Have a relaxing Sunday and may your week ahead be adventurous. Paulette

  4. those beeswax wraps need to be in my kitchen like yesterday. also, how cute are you?? and how does your hair look that good in the new orleans humidity?!

  5. so, i now want one of those cloths for wrapping bread. also, this grown up thing sucks, doesn’t it. what was your secret for putting it off so long? i graduated about 3 days ago (yay!) and i’m already up to my eyes in contracts and financial… stuff? i can’t really count, barely passed math in high school, so i see this as problematic!
