What I Actually Wore: 8.31 – 9.6

happy Monday!

I hope you had a good weekend. So, I survived my crazy 3 days (36 hour trip to LA + brand events on Saturday!!). It wasn’t nearly as exhausting as I had thought it would be. I handled this one well… overpreparing myself for events overload and exhaustion. Then, I holed up Wednesday in preparation for my early flight. Afterward, I cleared my calendar Saturday night to get to bed early. This is a bit of a crazy week and then my calendar is smooth sailing as of Friday. Becca and I are hosting a tea party in honor of American Royals, we are recording with some really big guests (CINDY!) and I have all my regular work + a bunch of events (most excitingly, a party for my sister’s new book on Thursday).

It’s exciting, though! When there is a lot going on with work I have to make sure I take better care of myself. I will remember to a) get a good 8 hours of sleep every night b) take even just 30 minutes to work out, and c) avoid alcohol.  It is tempting when you have to socialize and are tired BUT man, it really messes with my sleep!

PS – what I wore last week!

    American Royals is coded as a youth book at target for some reason, and I saw it there for $10! If you’ve been waiting to get it, now is the time.
