Oh hey, Monday! …and November?! What even.
I know I say this literally every month, or every week let’s be real, but it’s almost scary how quickly time has been passing this year. That being said though, I feel like I’ve been making an extra effort to be present in every moment and enjoy it. I don’t always have a ton of free time, but throughout October especially I wanted to do fun seasonal things with people I love so that I don’t look back and wonder what I was doing instead. And, most recently, that involved dressing up for Halloween and enjoying a glass of autumn sangria (recipe to come soon!)…
Fully aware I kind of look like Marilyn Monroe, but I assure you I was Sandy from Grease. An overdone costume for sure, but I honestly just wanted to be blonde for a day. Plus it couldn’t have been that bad of a choice since Gigi Hadid dressed up like the same exact thing…she just had someone doing her hair and makeup, but like whatever… (:
I actually had off the day before Halloween too, and spent the day at The Broad museum in downtown LA. If you haven’t been, I highly highly suggest it. I spent a whopping 3 hours there, which, if you know me, is an ungodly amount of time for me to spend in a museum. Aside from a quick coffee break in the middle though, I can honestly say it was awesome. And FREE. I still can’t believe that.
And, since the weather has been so much nicer these days, I’ve been trying to get outside more for my workouts. I visited an old favorite hiking spot last week and it felt so good to get to the top of the mountain and look out on my city. I know I hate on it a lot, but I really do love it… *wipes tear*
