Did you know that Blue Monday was a thing? I definitely did not, but it totally makes sense – and gave a little added meaning to my post about dealing with burn out at work. I’m taking my own advice and dedicating a little time to myself this weekend. Tonight, I’m breaking out some of my favorite beauty products (this sheet mask and this lip mask, which I got for Christmas), ordering dinner from my favorite Thai restaurant, pouring myself a glass of wine, and catching up on the TV I didn’t get to watch this week. It’s going to be amazing.

  • Here’s some great advice for travelling on a budget. I had to get a new passport this month after mine expired and I’m already itching to use it.

I started this week cold, dreary, and completely overwhelmed at work. After a few days of putting my nose to the grindstone, I’ve emerged on the other side feeling (slightly) less overwhelmed and ready for the weekend. So far, it’s shaping up to be very low key – watching football, reading, and cooking.

  • As someone who curses a lot, this was a welcome revelation.
