Eric and I have a lot on our plates right now, as we prepare for our move in just over one week. I have definitely had my moments of near-craziness, but we are doing our very best to stay sane.
Yesterday Eric worked from home and I took the day off. Shortly after asking Eric for a “we can do this” pep-talk, I received a book in the mail that instantly improved my day. Ever since Eric’s mom introduced me to Jennifer Scott’s blog, I have been hooked. I talk about her first book, Lessons From Madame Chic on JenEric quite a bit (here and here), and after the first review I wrote of her book, Jennifer Scott linked to it on her blog, and promised me an ARC (advance reading copy) when it became available.
Of course I should not be surprised that a pursuer of all things chic and meaningful would remember her promise to a small, humble blogger. I received the book in the mail, signed, and with a hand-written note tucked inside. Just as I suspected: she’s a real gem. I started reading the book, and am feeling very inspired. Madame Chic at Home (coming out this October!) was just the thing I needed as we prepare for our new home in a new state soon. I can’t wait to review the book on the blog in the near future.
And with that, here are a few of my favorite finds from the web this week:
How to choose a blog posting schedule that works (I am working on this)
I’ve started a pinterest board dedicated to my ultimate limited wardrobe (I see a few patterns developing…)
I watched this documentary on Netflix recently, and oh my. My new hero perhaps? I am utterly fascinated. I recommend it if you want to feel like you, too, can accomplish anything. (seriously, can we talk about this??)
This post spoke to me: 5 tips for growing your blog organically (without sponsorships)
I am really happy about all the shows and online-series popping up about ballet in the past few years. Here is the latest that follows young dancers as they prepare for one of the biggest dance competitions in the world.
(Also, a guide to loving ballet)
What have you discovered lately? Do share. And have a wonderful weekend! Ours will be spent with family, friends, and a lot of cardboard boxes that need to be packed up.
As I stated in my last Favorite Finds, I want to try something new with this series: for you bloggers, share a blog post you have written this past week in the comments! I would love to check it out (if I haven’t seen it already), and we can give each other a little exposure while we are at it.
