1. Your skin may never be perfect, and that’s okay.

2. Life is too short not to have the underwear, the coffee, and the haircut you want.

3. Everyone (including your family, your coworkers, and your best friend) will talk about you behind your back, and you’ll talk about them too. It doesn’t mean you don’t love each other.

4. It’s okay to spend money on things that make you happy.

5. Sometimes without fault or reason, relationships deteriorate. It will happen when you’re six, it will happen when you’re sixty. That’s life.

Random Act of Kindess

Tonight after work I stopped by Trader Joe’s to pick up some wine. I got in line behind a very frazzled mother whose youngest was a crying infant, whose middle child was dressed as a super hero and wanted to keep ringing the Trader Joe’s bell, and whose oldest was dressed like Princess Elsa. I joked with her as I started checking out that I should just give my wine to her; she smiled and gave me a look like she definitely needed it. As I walked to my car, I realized she was parked next to me. I walked to the passenger side of my car and put my things inside, then walked around the front to get inside. She promised me she would be out of my way soon and I told her to take her time as I wasn’t in a rush. I started my car, rolled down the windows, and pulled out my phone to pass the time. As I scrolled through Instagram, I heard a little voice say excuse me. I looked over and the little girl dressed as a princess told me she was practicing her random acts of kindness and handed me a Starbucks gift card. I was shocked. Shocked at her sweetness. Shocked at her thoughtfulness. And happy. Happy that there are good people out there, good people who are teaching their kids to be good people, too. So thank you frazzled mother of three, your thoughtfulness is much appreciated.

Happy National Dog Day!

The day is off to a great start when

The VP of Communications comes to you in the morning and hugely compliments you on a last minute assignment she gave you. Yesterday afternoon I was asked to write a few paragraphs on our social media approach and how it should be developed in the future. Our VP told me my work was extremely well written and I had some great ideas.

All smiles over here.

Sarah Hyland’s amazing crop top ensemble from Christian Siriano proves that crop tops are definitely still in. »

Half my high school wore a version of this to prom in 2004, and that is not a dig at this dress. 

I’m excited Christian Siriano is still designing and still relevant. His stint with Payless had me worried. Also, this is the only crop top I would wear.

I tried to quit Facebook

And it didn’t work. Ugh. So disappointed with myself.

Tonight I held my first book club and made this awesome food (and most importantly, provided plenty of wine). We reviewed The Goldfinch and had really great conversation. It was seriously awesome and I’m so excited for our club to continue. Sometimes being an adult isn’t so bad.
