Hello everyone! As you may have noticed I have been travelling like crazy lately and just wanted to give you an update! Last week I was in Germany for work and then flew straight to Ireland to spend 48 hours with friends for St. Patrick’s Day. I learned that you need to call it “St. Paddy’s Day” to fit in with the locals and we had a great time! Now I am back in London, but only for a day and a half before I jet set off to Germany again for work. It’s go, go, go. And sadly, that has meant not enough time for Sparkles and Shoes though I have some great ideas on deck.
However, until then I wanted to give you all a little life update. I have done this once before and you all thought it was a fun way to catch you up on my life so here we go again:
Making: A list of items of the things I need at the grocery store when I actually have time to go this weekend!
Cooking: Not a lot. I am thinking about going back to Hello Fresh though if my schedule calms down!
Drinking: A ton of espresso with oat milk now that I learned how to use the machine at the office.
Reading: The Great Alone by Kristin Hannah.
Wanting: For time to speed up and to be headed to Bali!
Looking: A long gown as I just realized the event I am going to Saturday night is black tie!!
Playing: The games Bricks n Balls (the #3 game in the App Store)
Wasting: Less plastic bags as I just bought reusable ziplocks during a Black Friday sale.
Wishing: There was Target and Sephora here in the U.K., I miss both of them!
Enjoying: How many of my friends come to visit England!
Wondering: What we ever did before Spotify premium.
Loving: That I still can use my college ID for student discounts.
Marvelling: That before May I had never been to Germany and now today I am going for my 16th time!
Smelling: The last of my delicious holiday vanilla candle!
Wearing: A ton of dresses with tights and booties, but Spring, please hurry up!
Following: Not as many blogs as I used to and that makes me sad.
Listening: To Kiss and Make Up by Dua Lupia, I put it on my swim MP3 player over the weekend and it is the best cardio song!
Noticing: That tax season is different in every country!
Thinking: I have laundry to do.
Bookmarking: Long weekend getaway destinations, there are so many around England!
Needing: To plan my 10th annual classy cocktail party next weekend!
Opening: A new package of my favorite press on nails, should I do another post?
So there you have it, a quick life update in not so many words. What is new in your world?
