Two Months and Change

Can you believe I took two and a half months off blogging? (OK, maybe you can, or maybe you didn’t even notice.) Anyway, I should be back semi-regularly. Overall though, things haven’t changed much. I still listen to terrible hip-hop music loudly in my office and take too many books out of the library at one time. I guess I’ve been doing more yoga, and I’m almost finished with my first Whole30 (these days, my meals look a lot like this). So I suppose you could say I’ve become a hippy-dippy crunchy paleo person*. We went to North Carolina and New York for the holidays, and the most notable thing from our journeys was that we spent a night in Asheville, and I loved it. In January I ventured further south to New Orleans with Cody, and next week I leave for the first of a couple already planned NYC trips for the year with Heather, Allie, and Adam. I finally bought a bar cart for the apartment—almost a year from when I first blogged about it, which goes to show you how long it takes me to make a decision on furniture.

Two Months and Change // Curating Style

Things I’ve been liking
- This book, this article, and this TV show
- Challenging myself into yoga poses like these

Things I’ve been eyeing
- One of everything from this e-commerce site
- A nice pair of sandals (and weather to accompany them)
- A yoga mat upgrade (eventually)

What have you all been up to? If you blog, leave me your most recent favorite post – I’d love to check it out.

* This isn’t a bad thing; just never thought it’d be me.

    I had rather wondered if you had decided to stop blogging. I’m glad I didn’t take you off my RSS! Welcome back and congrats on your healthy new diet.

    I blog too (rather sporadically) and my favorite recent post was actually my most recent post. It involved gold faux bamboo to: http://piesandpuggles.blogspot.com/2013/02/project-214-paint-almost-any-piece-of.html

    Though it’s not a bar cart, I’m pleased with how it turned out.

  2. I’ve been wondering how you are doing! It sounds like you are busy busy – that’s so cool you get to go to NYC multiple times this year, i’m jealous! I know someone who lives in Asheville and she LOVES IT. It’s on my list of dream places to visit…or really anywhere in North Carolina for that matter. :)

    You’re back! So happy to see you posting again. I’m trying to get back into it as well and find a way to do it much more efficiently. I’d love to get coffee soon. Maybe after your trip to NYC?

  4. welcome back :)

    I’m so glad you are going to come by Unwrapped – let me know when you go, maybe we can meet up! Would love to finally meet IRL ;)

    Sometimes a blogging break is just what one needs. Lord knows I’ve taken a few. I think sometimes we get in the habit of living to blog about it, and forget to just live and not necessarily photograph everything we’re doing. {okay, maybe I still do…}

    Regardless, I’m glad you’re back, lady! Yay for yoga… I’ve been doing it at home bc of my wonky schedule lately. There are few things more relaxing!

  6. Glad you’re back :) I went to order another silk blouse this weekend, and it seems they’re nearly all sold out….hope you snagged one!

    • Jess says:

      Thanks! Actually, I did miss the navy one being in stock, but that’s OK – gives me more time to decide on sizing and which color(s) I want to get!

  7. Nicole says:

    Hooray! I’m so glad you’re back. I’m excited to check out Everlane, although I must say I’m on a definite spending limit for the next few weeks. Would love to hear a bit about your Whole 30!

    • Jess says:

      I’ve been on a spending diet lately myself, but having sold a bunch of things on Poshmark, I’m definitely ready to invest in some new pieces for spring. Whole30 recap will be up soon!

      • Nicole says:

        Have you tried Stitchfix? I 100% recommend it to add some fun pieces that are a little out of the box/comfort level. I did it last month and loved the experience! Check it out.

  8. clare says:

    Glad you’re back! I’d love to hear about how the Whole30 went and if you’d recommend it. I feel in need of that after my recent Valentine’s cookie binge….

  9. rita says:

    welcome back!:) i wouldn’t get the manduka mat… i have one and it’s ok, but i far prefer matt’s lululemon mat that was quite a bit cheaper. can’t wait to hear more about your trips!

  10. Erin Hutter says:

    Jess! You’re back! I saw Zach Saturday night & was asking about you. We need to get together & swap recipes over oysters. That meal looks amazing!

  11. Heather says:

    I LOVE that sandal. I’m grumbling a bit about the upcoming warmer weather in regards to shoes, because I find it difficult to find sandals that I actually like for a reasonable price (and doesn’t squeak with my sweaty feet lol!).

    I read this post fully about the comparison of newest and previous technologies,
    it’s awesome article.
