On The Line | No. 26

Happy Friday friends! That first full week back to work after vacation has been a struggle. Not so much the jet lag but more so the getting up in the morning and instead of doing whatever I want, I have to go to work. However, the job pays for the vacations and all those fun things in life. It's all about compromise and some sacrifice right?! Also, Happy Halloween? What are you guys doing or dressing up as?

What do you think of today's On The Line words of wisdom?

You Get What You Work For Not What You Wish For. I thought this quote was appropriate for today considering my struggles of getting back to work. Also, though it's not so much about your work as in your job but about the effort you put into the different areas of your life. How many times do you catch yourself thinking, "I wish..." I do it all the time and it's great to dream big but how amazing would it be if what you wished for could be your reality? A lot of those wishes can be made reality with a little work - it might take extra effort, some sacrifices, and time but if you want something, you can make it happen. Easier said than done, I know. But just start by writing down one of your wishes and below that wish jot down all things that need to occur to make that wish happen. Start with the smaller items and tackle each item, one-by-one. Before you know it, that wish will becoming true.

 
 

Around The Web

The internet is full of awesome, beautiful, and strange things; wouldn't you agree? I'm pulling my favs and sharing them with you.  I've rounded up my top loved links from stories, recipes, style, animal cuteness...basically anything and everything. Some old, some new, some you may have already seen but nonetheless something to take your mind off that daily grind.  So grab your cup of coffee or cocktail (it's never to early) and click away. Cheers.

  • {Style} My all time favorite boot brand, Modern Vice is currently having 30% off their entire site until Monday. Use code "Halloween" to take advantage. My favorite pair are the Jetts (worn here, here, here, & here).
     
  • {Style} Rebecca Minkoff is having her sample sale and it's happening online now. There are so many great finds from almost 75% off.
     
  • {This, That, & Laughs} While I'm not one for religious songs, the version of Hallelujah by Pentatonix is beautiful. I can't help but picture that scene from The O.C. (where this song also plays) when Marisa is dying & Ryan is carrying her down the road. Oh I miss The O.C. - I freaking loved that show.
     
  • {Mind, Body, Soul} Are any of you bullet journal geeks? I tried it didn't stick with it. However, this article is inspiring me to give it a go again. I think it's a great way to brain dump but also keep track of your life.
     
  • {Beauty} I've slowly been trying to incorporate natural beauty products in my life & stop using chemically laden creams and such on my skin. This article is a great read about the ugly side of the non-natural beauty industry.
