Hello vacation week! I am so thrilled to see you! I have been super busy mentally preparing for my first ever vacation as an adult. I’m really excited for the time off and hope it brings me satisfaction and relaxation. I feel like I need time to find either a better direction or some career clarity or something like that.
I announced my goals for February. I’m actually really excited to get going on these. Part of my vacation will be spent doing some organizing and cleaning around the apartment in hopes of setting up a section of our spare bedroom for blog related things – in hopes that it will inspire me to bring you more awesome content! I got a lot of my January goals completed or close to – and my lightbox arrived! So yay for all of that.
Last month, I participated in the 12x30Challenge. Each month has a theme and while January’s was about loving yourself, February is about organization. PERFECT for my plans this month anyway! I am so excited about this calendar I found over at My So Called Chaos because it easily breaks down some otherwise really annoying chores. I like that I really only have to accomplish 1-2 tasks every day instead of fretting over all of these seemingly huge projects. I will be making one for myself more tuned to my needs.
Also, isn’t Angie’s new blog theme gorgeous? Great timing on that one as I really think her content is easier to read, professional and clean. Her personality shines through just a bit more. Really loving it!
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. Seriously, you have less than 10 days to get something together. Ugh… why does Jeremy’s birthday have to be so close to a holiday I enjoy observing!? But never fear because I am here to help and have some awesome gift ideas! Here are The Best Valentine’s Gifts for Geeks. These are all non-traditional gifts and hand made! That means no flowers, no candy, no jewelry.
And in case you are celebrating Singles are Still Awesome Day or you just aren’t feeling Valentine’s Day this year, I have the perfect giveaway for you to enter at the bottom of that post. I’m giving away 1 T-Shirt that if all goes accordingly, you will have on your back by Valentine’s Day so you can rock it out in style! The giveaway runs until Monday morning so hurry and enter! It is open to U.S. residents only.
I shouldn’t even tell you that this giveaway is also happening because well… I want it. I am so in love with Zoya’s new line and I am absolutely dying to have it. I recently received my very first bottles of Zoya that I chose during a promo thing that they had going on. I fell in love with the brand and now I must have more! Jen at FabFatale is giving away this set of the new Zoya Natural Satins.
I know, I know. Not a whole lot happening right now. Worst of all, I tooootally suck and I forgot to finish this post yesterday. I have a good excuse – I was out to dinner with Jeremy and some of his colleagues. Oh yes, I was out being an adult and stuff. I even left my My Little Pony purse at home. That is super, crazy adult of me!
So what’s going on in your neck of the woods?
