So excited that we are creeping closer and closer to summer. I’ve been day dreaming about long days spent at the pool, girly cocktails, sun dresses, BBQ’s and beach days.Summer can’t get here fast enough! I have a lot of trips planned for this summer: Chad and I want to go to Catalina and Carmel and then I’m going to Palm Springs with some friends at the end of summer as well. Lots of exciting things to look forward to!
I’m feeling very productive this week. I’m so happy to report that I did not take one single nap this week. Yay! For the past few weeks I have not been able to fall asleep at night, leaving me exhausted during the day and inevitably resulted in me taking a few naps. I’m not sure what changed this week, but I have been able to sleep like a baby and have felt refreshed every day this week.
I’ve ventured to one of my favorite coffee shops this week to work from there instead of my home office. It was nice to have a different environment to work from for the day. I also met Chad for lunch at our favorite Indian Curry place in Irvine, called Annapoorna. If you’re in the area, you must try it. Especially during lunch, because it’s a lunch buffet and it is to die for!
I’ve also started working out at Trim Fitness again. I took a break from it about 8 months ago because the workout was proving to be difficult and taxing on my Fibromyalgia. I missed the workout though so much, 1. because it’s an addicting workout, and 2. because nothing has given me results quite like this hardcore pilates workout (known as the Lagree method). So I’m back at it and loving it! I’ll share a before and after post after a couple months so you can see the difference this workout makes. Highly recommend giving it a try!
I actually just signed Trim Fitness as a client last week. Yay! I’m thrilled. It’s such a fun account to work on. I’m handling their Facebook and Instagram account so make sure to check them out for fitness and wellness inspiration!
Moving on to She’s All Smiles now. Life has been crazy working on getting my social media consulting business off the ground, so I kind of ended up putting this space on the back burner. I think I have finally figured out a time management system that will allow me to work on my consulting business, as well as this blog. Because afterall, the blog is my passion and so I need to prioritize it accordingly.
You’re responses to my survey a couple of weeks ago have proved to be extremely helpful for me crafting the editorial calendar for the rest of this year. I’m so glad that I was able to learn what type of content you guys are wanting to see. If you haven’t had a chance to complete the survey, please give it a go. I’ll be internally grateful. 🙂 You can access it here.
Ok, now let’s talk about this outfit. It’s one of my favorites to wear during warmer weather. I’m starting to love crop tops. I used to steer clear of them because I’m very self conscious about my stomach, but then I decided that it was a cute trend that I should give a try. And afterall, I don’t have to show my entire stomach, instead I can wear cute high-waisted skirts or jeans, like I did here.
I found this crop top from Tobi.com. They are my new go to site for casual fashion. They are constantly having sales and their clothes are adorable and very fashion forward.
This weekend is going to be relaxing and will be spent with Chad and some friends. On Saturday we have plans to try out a new bar/restaurant here in town called Heroes and Legend. It was supposed to open in February but kept on getting delayed, so we are very excited to finally have the opportunity to check it out.
On Sunday we are hitting up the movie theater to watch Me Before You (anyone else seeing that this weekend!?). I’m so excited! What are your plans for this weekend?
