Life Lately: The Week from My iPhone

Hey there! I hope it’s been a great week.

I have a video shoot about to commence at my house for a new project I’m working on with Fitter Faster but I wanted to pop in for a quick “life lately” post courtesy of the iPhone!


Speaking of my house…we are getting all settled in and are completely unpacked. I completely credit my fiance for having us unpacked and organized within two weeks of moving in because I’m one of those people who would have coasted at 75% unpacked for a few months. Ha. I like to call this the table of decorative items needing a home. There’s a lot going on here but at least they’re pretty things.


The buddha and lotus flowers have found their home.


We ran out of food one night so the dogs got this feast of the remainders of the dog food topped with brown rice, greek yogurt and cheese. They did not complain and I’m pretty sure they’d be cool with more food shortages in the future. 😉


It’s been insanely over the top gorgeous in Charlotte this week. 70s and Carolina blue skies.


I’ve had a few friend dates to soak it all up. Smoothie on the patio at Luna’s (I know, I know…I just said I was taking a break from them. Old habits die hard…and at least it was afternoon snack and not breakfast!).


Breakfast date with one of my running partners and her five week old baby girl. That hat. Dying.


It’s also been a week of pampering. I stopped in to see my friend at Carolina Facial Plastics for a little fall skincare check-in. Full post to come on that in the next week!


And today I got a fresh cut and color. Last one was on my birthday over 4 months ago so it was needed! I felt so proud of myself when my stylist (who has seen me for 5+ years) told me my hair was in the best shape he’d ever seen it. I credit a summer of wet braids and wavy hair.


And finally, for the last year or so I have had a quote on my bathroom mirror. When we moved I changed it to this one and it’s such a lovely thing to see first thing in the morning and throughout the day. I highly recommend having a few quotes and affirmations around your home.

Lights, camera, action. Time to go!

Tell me the best thing about your week.

Are you a fast unpacker/organizer or can you live with a little chaos?

    I love the concept behind Fitter Faster so I’m excited to hear what you’re doing! After vacations I tend to live out of my suitcase for at least a week. Bad habit but I guess that means I can live with chaos 🙂

    When it comes to moving into a new space I am a fast unpacker. In my last apartment I cleaned and unpacked everything in one night, I was quite determined to achieve some normalcy in the space.
    But when it comes to suitcases and traveling, I keep stuff packed up for days upon days, not sure why that is 🙂

    Hah! I had to do the same thing tonight with the pup. Was running low on dog food so added in some yogurt and a big carrot for a late night snack!

    Best thing about this week – So many things! All my flights were on time for work travel. Got a great new job offer 🙂 AND spent quality time with my mom over margaritas and guac!

    Best thing about my week is that I’ve been able to cook all of my dinners at home! Normally I travel for work so it’s been remarkably wonderful just to cook up dinner every night instead of eat out.

    Congrats on being unpacked. That must be such a good feeling. Can’t wait to hear more about your project!

    I am nuts about unpacking and getting everything put away and in its place. Usually one or two random boxes of stuff linger though in a closet and I find them a few years later lol

    Love that quote! Best part of my week has definitely been this amazing fall weather in Baltimore! Can’t get enough of it!

    I”m a fast unpacker… can’t live in chaos! I even unpack super fast after trips… can’t stand having the suitcase around.
    It has been sooooo pretty in the mountains– I can’t get enough!

    What a great quote! I hope you don’t mind if I instagram it (credit will be attached). 🙂

      Yes, of course! It’s not my quote, just something I shared!
