I did something fun yesterday that I’ve never done before! I was invited to attend a Topping Out ceremony for Fenton, a new mixed-use development in Cary, North Carolina. I had to look up what topping out meant, and it’s essentially putting in the last beam or part of a building to complete that phase of a project. I’ve had my eye on Fenton ever since I first heard about it, and I cannot wait to enjoy it when it’s finished next year!
Did you catch my post earlier this week all about the 10 white crew-neck t-shirts I tried on?! Read it here!
I also shared a few of my “back to school” hacks that are very easy on this post!
I’m continuing to train for the sprint triathlon I’m doing next month, but I’m behind schedule on my swim practice. Honestly, this week ended up being quite busy and I was hoping to swim laps at least once a week. Between a full schedule and lots of rain, it just didn’t happen. I did get my triathlon tank in the mail this week so I’m hoping to try it on and practice swimming with it this weekend. My plan for my outfit during the race is to wear a triathlon tank with my favorite Spanx bike shorts.
And here are a few things I mentioned on Instagram Stories recently that you may have missed:

Bad Daddy’s Burger Bar in Raleigh – a yummy burger place
Coquette Brasserie in Raleigh – fantastic brunch on Sunday morning, would love to go back for dinner!

Questions from Monday’s Q&A box on Instagram!
My 18 year old just started Cosmetology school, any advice? Yes! Pay attention to the science to understand how it all works, but plan on learning most of your skills in a salon as an assistant.
Thoughts on Botox? “you do you” is my only thought!
What is a lash lift? You can read about it here!
What exactly are curvy jeans? I wrote about my favorite curvy jeans on this post, in case you missed it, but generally curvy jeans are cut in a shape that allows for a bit more room in the butt and thighs, with a tapered waist.
Purse question: How many are too many? It’s hard for me to answer that but I generally like to have a casual option and a more dressed-up option in any given season.
Looking for an eyeliner for the waterline that won’t budge. I haven’t found one yet! It’s kind of impossible because you’re applying it to a generally moist area of your eye!
Mini review on your Maya Brenner Necklace? It’s incredibly sturdy and I almost never take it off. Highly recommend!
