So today's date is 2/22/18... which made me think, how weird it will be in 2022 when it's written out like 2/22/22... that's a lot of 2's, ha!

This week has been as great as a post-vacation week can get. I took the day on Monday to totally 'reset'. I grocery shopped, cleaned, did laundry, unpacked, and got organized. I also edited all my photos from my trip. I was very productive! The rest of the week I played catch up on e-mails, DM's and worked on organizing my trip content for all of you.

I also previewed the Paris video my sister made for me. I sent her all of my footage and she edited it all into a cute video. I love making videos from my trips. It's such a great way to preserve memories. I'll be sharing that sometime next week. I took a bunch of videos this trip, too so my sister will be making another video for me! Can't wait to share!

Wearing: I wore this dress on my trip last week and I just love it! It is one of those really good versatile dresses that you could wear to work, to a baby or bridal shower, and even on a Caribbean vacation.

Eating: I got this raspberry wasabi mustard at Fresh Market the other day and have been using it non stop! I guess the flavor sounds kind of odd, but it's sweet and spicy and all around a solid dipping sauce. I also marinated chicken breasts with it and then baked them and they were SO good.

Drinking: I told you guys about the passion fruit flavor of La Croix and I'm not kidding you, I'm going through like 1-2 per day. The obsession is real. Go get yourself some!

Reading: I talked about Jojo Moye's newest book a few Lately's ago, but I had only been about 100 pages in. I finished it and it is really good! A nice, easy read... perfect for winding down before bed or a light read on the beach!

Reading II: I decided to order this book to learn more about dogs in general. I am so fascinated by them and this book is highly acclaimed! I can't wait to read it. 

 This week, I saw 'American Made'... it was really good! In other news, I am totally out of shows to watch. I feel like I've watched everything. I'm thinking of starting Mad Men again... but any suggestions? I'm very much a binger. I don't watch a lot of TV, but when I do, I binge. 

Listening: Guys, I started a February playlist and then totally dropped the ball. I'll have to reset in March. I just haven't been loving much of anything lately! 

Loving: You guys know me and my obsession with skincare products. Well, my friend Sara introduced me to a new-to-me line called Ever. I ordered the blemish and spot corrector because I have a few reddish acne scars that I have been working to get rid of. It has Vitamin C in it which has been my latest skincare favorite. Vitamin C is a great way to get clearer skin over time. I've been using the product for about a month and I LOVE it! It really works. I put it on as a spot treatment at night and over this past month, I have noticed the discolorations have very clearly diminished. If you're looking for a product to get rid of sunspots, discoloration, etc., this is it. I love that it's very gentle, too!
Loving II: I just designed this bag on Barrington's website and I can't wait for it to arrive! I wanted a 'Summer Wind' bag (aka a bag with Summer Wind colors) and this one just screams spring, doesn't it?! Can't wait to use it for travel. It is the absolute perfect size with allllll of the pockets! 

Did you guys have any idea that Restoration Hardware has a 'teen' site, much like Pottery Barn? A lot of the pieces really are geared towards true teens, but pieces like this are something I'd absolutely love to have in my home!

Wanting II: There are so many good pieces. I am trying to hold off on buying anything for spring until I majorly purge my own closet, though! But how AMAZING are these shoes... OMG. 

Pittsburgh-ing: There is a new French restaurant in Lawrenceville, Poulet Bleu that I am just dying to try out! Has anyone checked it out yet? I made a reservation for April becuase that was literally the soonest I could even get a res! 

Quoting: Just believe in yourself. // See more of my favorites, here.
