I am going to be honest with you guys...last week was really kind of a rough one for me. Nothing was terrible, just long hours at work and lots of not so fun stuff (aka laundry and cleaning) to do when I got home. This week though....this week put a smile on my face! After some much needed sleep, 12 hrs on a Saturday night to be exact, I felt rested and ready to tackle this week and it was a great one! The weather warmed up for what I am sure is our Indian Summer, but I will take it! I got a present of an owl candle holder from Yankee Candle (trust me, I know I have a problem ha) and it just reminded me that people out there can be so nice, sweet, and thoughtful just because they want to be.
Also I got to view a video of the power of photo-shop and it made me sad that it is used how it is in magazines and such these days. I have been recovered from an eating disorder for almost 5 years now and the pressures girls have on them today to fit an ideal image is almost unattainable by any healthy means! Women are so much more than their weight or perfect skin, and perfectly decorated house. So seeing the video and how unrealistic photos can truly be, it makes me want to celebrate being a woman and having flaw and being A-OK with it! I hope women take the time to look at videos like that and say, hey everyone has things they would change, so love who you are because perfection is totally boring!
I have worn these sunglasses in multiple posts, but I don't think I have totally raved yet at how FABULOUS they truly are!! I was obsessing (OK, OK drooling) over a pair very similar by Karen Walker, but they were very pricey. Here is my problem with sunglasses, I lose or sit on them at least monthly if not weekly! So when I saw these at Aldo at a much more reasonable price for my sunglasses smashing rear-end, I had to snag them up! I have been super careful and am happy to report they are still in tack!
O and in case you all forgot, this is my last day of work before vacation!! In 3 days Mexico better watch out, because I am going to be headed your way!!
What made you smile this week?? I would love to hear about it and celebrate some good times with you!
Thanks for reading,
