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.

Stunning Dress from Banana Republic

Long Sleeve Silk Maxi Dress

Winter Wedding Guest Dress

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

Popcorn Containers

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 ๐Ÿ˜”

How are you balancing both pieces of exercise equipment? Do you just wake up and decide what feels right? Contemplating another piece myself but donโ€™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!
