Tapestry Skirt and Five for Friday

12:00 AM

Skirt:  Loft // Top:  Ewa Bazaar // Shoes:  Famous Footwear

Ahh, it’s finally Friday.  Y’all honestly don’t know how happy I am that it’s Friday.  This week has been such a hectic week, so for the first time in a while I’m doing a legit 5 for Friday post where I talk about my week because it’s been crazy.

1.  Stomach Virus

I have no idea what happened, but somehow Monday morning I woke up with the worst stomach issues.  I tried to make it into work because I thought I would be able to make it through the day, but nope.  I made it until 10:30 and then went home.  I’m finally feeling better.  I’m feeling 100% today, Wednesday  I was at 95% because I was able to have coffee and work out.  That’s a sign of me doing better!

2.  The Handmaid’s Tale

Since I was sick and last weekend the boyfriend went to upstate I had some time to myself so I decided to start watching The Handmaid’s Tale.  I want to read the book because I want to know what happens to Offred.  I binge watched Friday and Saturday and then Monday I finished the series after I tried to sleep off the stomach virus.  As messed up as this show/book is, for whatever reason I like it.  It’s so dark, but as I was watching it, I thought to myself that this can actually happen in real life which is the crazy part.  There are people out there who would see no problem in what was happening.  I’m not going to give it away or spoil anything for anyone but if you’re ok with extremely dark and strong content I would highly recommend this for you.

3.  BBG Week 2

So I couldn’t start official week 2 of BBG until Wednesday so I skipped 2 days of LISS, but I did do all of my toning workouts.  Can I please just say that whenever I do leg day with BBG it’s literally the same type of feeling as a leg day at the gym?  I get sore everywhere else too on the other days, but dannngggg leg day is a killer.  I walk like a penguin for the rest of the week haha.  So far I’m liking BBG, but I know for sure I would not have been able to do this before doing the 21 Day Fix.  I feel like this doesn’t take as much discipline and you have to know how to do the workouts on your own.  Plus, I feel like BBG is easier to cheat out your workout.  I don’t do it, but if you would’ve asked me a year ago I probably would not have succeeded with BBG.  A lot of people do though, I just know I couldn’t.

4.  Work

I honestly don’t think I’ve ever complained about work before on the blog, but I must say, this week has really run me down.  I don’t know what it was but I felt like I was in the twilight zone the entire week.  Everything was just, off.  Nothing was going right and I’m one of those people who goes above and beyond so when someone doesn’t like to hear my opinion it made me almost think “well fine then, wait until you need help on something.”  I’m not one to talk back, but I’m one to fight for what I believe in, and this week, the fight is over.  After almost 5 years, this week was the eye opener.  It showed me that I need to pick and choose my battles and that who I am at work is wasting their breath.  The culture of the company may have something to do with this.  I’m very thankful for this job and I have learned a lot, but for whatever reason, this week was the week that I finally gave up.  My team will never be good enough because our job title isn’t that of a manager and we for whatever reason get treated like the bottom of the food chain all the time in a more respectful manner of course.  Basically, this was the week that I finally said eff it.  This is why one day I wish to have my own business and be my own boss, my own CEO, my own founder, etc.

5.  My Outfit

Last but not least, today’s outfit.  I’ve been living in this skirt because it’s the greatest skirt ever.  I actually saw a fellow blogger wearing it and I just had to get my hands on it.  It’s actually on sale now!  It was $59.50 but is now $39.50.  I’m super jealous of anyone getting it for $39.50!

  2. UGH...stomach bugs are the worst. So glad you are back to 100%. That skirt is super cute. I bought the tank like it but ended up returning it because it was just hanging there with the tags still on. What's BBG? I'm not familiar with that. Have a great weekend!

  3. Beautiful! Such a sophisticated look. Love your skirt styled with a simple tank. Also, your sunnies are gorge!
