I hope you’ve had a nice week and are looking ahead to a relaxing weekend! I feel like my weekends are numbered before the madness of the holidays really kicks in, so I’m grateful we don’t have a ton going on right now!

Today is Veteran’s Day and I just want to say thank you to those who have served!

I got a tray for my Peloton Tread so I can work on my laptop and walk. I got it because my least favorite part of my job is the days when I have a lot of time blocked off to work on the computer, so I wanted to see if it helped my productivity and focus to walk, albeit at a very slow pace. I’ve used it a few times and really like it! I wondered if it was going to make me feel like I wouldn’t have enough space on the tread for my typical gate, but it was totally fine.

I’ve been sharing updates on Instagram, but this is the tread tray I purchased.

Speaking of Amazon, did you hear that GAP is now available to purchase on Amazon?!

Sugarwish, the best way to send candy as a gift to someone, now has COCKTAILS!

And here are a few things I mentioned on Instagram Stories recently that you may have missed:

Armani Luminous Silk Foundation – Shade 5.25

Huda Beauty Concealer – Shade Vanilla Swirl 3.1B

Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder for Undereyes

Julep Cream Eyeshadow Stick in Ginger Matte – a nice, soft toffee color!

Hourglass Eyeshadow Singles Palette

Chanel Eye Contour in Shade 12 – allows me to do the softest hint of eyeliner.

Lip Kit by Pat McGrath

Julia Marcum from @ChrisLovesJulia – we met for lunch and she was lovely!

Biltmore Malbec Wine – possibly my favorite wine of all time!

Corkcicle Cooler Backpack

Alterna Bond Repair Overnight Treatment – perfect for restoring strength to fragile hair.

Waist Length Align Tank – really love this, but I would recommend sizing up 2 sizes. It runs very, very snugly.

Long Sleeve Silk Maxi Dress

Winter Wedding Guest Dress

GAP Satin Button Down – runs true to size and comes in a handful of colors!

Henley – it runs small but it’s a very nice henley to wear with denim.

Maybe it’s just me, but anytime I open any of your Gap/Old Navy/BR/Athleta links, it just sends me to the main page so I can’t see what the product is 😔

How are you balancing both pieces of exercise equipment? Do you just wake up and decide what feels right? Contemplating another piece myself but don’t know anyone else with both… thanks

I try to have a rough plan for the week, so I often map out my workouts on Sundays!
