I would like to think that the current bags under my eyes are designer but sadly they are not. They’re designed by none other than my fabulous day job…note the sarcasm. I’m currently in a disaster of a project at work. I won’t bore you with the details but I’m currently trying to clean up a project that failed miserably and once I think I have something figured out, nope, something else blows up. So I haven’t had much time for anything else because I’ve been working a ton of hours.
My reprieve is coming on here and taking some time to hang with you all so thank you for letting me do just that. I’m trying not to get down on myself during this time because I know it will pass. It’s hard though because it’s eating into time I want to devote and spend working on SMT while also having some sort of social life. I could really go for a cocktail (or three) right about now.
Luckily, I’ve got something to look forward to - I’m escaping on a little vacay at the end of the month. Actually, I’m counting down the days and seriously hoping that this project at work is on an upwards swing by then (fingers crossed). The husband and I haven’t been on a legit vacation since we were in Hong Kong almost four years ago. It’s totally not like us because we love to travel but I’ve had to save my days off because I’ve needed them for things that have popped up with SMT. I seriously can’t wait to be sitting on a beach doing absolutely nothing.
Here are a few other things that are going on in my life, items on the to-do list, and things I’m loving that I want to share with you…
I started an armpit detox. I know you’re probably thinking, what is that?! I think I must’ve been some type of hippy in another life because I really tend to gravitate to all of that type of hokey wellness stuff. Actually, I’ve been wanting to do this since January 7, 2018…I know the date is random but I sent myself an email with a detox “recipe” on that date. So a little over a year later, I’m starting it. Better late than never, right?! I’m definitely going to post all about it. I want to give it at least 30 days before I make an assessments or share my thoughts.
I recently got the SureFire Stiletto flashlight and I am loving it. I’ve been wanting it since I saw it a year ago but I couldn’t find it online anywhere and then I just forgot about it until two months ago. I love that it’s profile is rectangle versus round because I can wear it in my waistband easier and it doesn’t bulge as much.
In the world of SMT, I’m working on my next Concealed Carry Style Guide video…if I can ever get a break from work, I’m trying to get that filmed. Also, I’m trying to get a couple other things released in the Style Me Shop and find a new manufacturer for the Gun Snob mugs. All things that should’ve been ready by now but there is just not enough hours in the day.
I just picked up this cute camo tote from J. Crew and it’s only $8 - that’s the full price. So it’s going to be even cheaper when it’s on sale. It’s canvas and the quality is good for the price. It’s a great everyday errand style tote to use for whatever you might need to lug around for a day. For the price, if get it’s ruined not a big deal.
I’m also looking for some good book recommendations for my vacation so send a few you love. I’m not really a fiction kind of reader, I like more wellness and self-improvement, motivational style books. I’ve got Blink by Malcolm Gladwell on my list but I’m also looking for suggestions.
Well that’s it for me…I’m off to get back to behind my work laptop for the foreseeable future. Send coffee and cocktails ;)
