Happy 2017, my Philly ladies! This month is speeding on by, and thankfully, this winter seems to be going a little better for me than I was anticipating. Instead of letting the winter blues get me down again this year, I decided it was time to make some #upgrades, ones that directly and totally benefitted one person alone: me! With a little help from my friend Vitamin D (in the form of baby yellow pills), and a few changes, I’m excited to share what I’m working on this month and beyond . . .
As I type these first few words, I instantly feel relief and happiness. Even though it has only been three weeks since I took an unscheduled hiatus from blogging, I have truly missed this so much and I’m glad to be back.
To give a quick explanation of where I’ve been: I started a new full-time job (!!!) earlier this month. On top of a much shorter commute, I’ll now be dedicating most of my time to social media, something I am extremely passionate about. My job falls in a new industry which will definitely be a challenge for me, but it is one I am so excited about and I can’t wait to dig in deeper. It’s great when you get a new job that you want to achieve in, it gives that feeling of ‘newness’. You can always get help as well especially if you are worried about how your resume looks, luckily companies such as https://www.arcresumes.com/local/texas/ are on-hand when required!
To replace the traditional “new haircut” change upon starting a new job (I love my hair too much), my spare time has been spent in full apartment detox mode. Closets were/are the first to be tackled, resulting in me adding a lot to my Poshmark. I’m thinking of doing one of those apartment “tours,” a la my favorite YouTubers, once it’s all done. I’ll keep you posted.
I’ve also had a great month full of girl power. First, I went to see Lana Del Rey at The Mann – she was fantastic. Later that week, I went to see my girls HAIM at Tower Theater. I danced and sang and it was so. much. fun. I’ve also been loving Game of Thrones, because, spoiler alert: the girls are killing it. Sansa is so my #1.
And of course, as May is my birthday month, I’ve been treating myself (which to me includes buying self tanner and indulging in a pedicure here and there). It also means allowing myself to plan my own celebrations, something I felt very self conscious about doing on my single-girl-own last year. This past weekend I was joined by six of my closest friends for a seven course heaven on earth experience at Marrakesh (517 South Leithgow Street). Tonight (my actual birthday!), I am going to The Fat Ham (3131 Walnut Street) with the rest of my Philly crew, and this weekend I’ll be celebrating with my family. I consider myself very lucky that I get to celebrate with the people I love . . . and that my self tanner is finally starting to take effect.
All in all, I am happy to be back (did I mention that yet?) and I hope you’re excited to start reading again. If there’s anything you’d really like to see, as always, let me know. Love ya peeps! xx
