What I’m Into Volume 27

Photo via
Lately I’ve been trying to do things that make me feel good; that make me happy. Life has been full of ups and downs, so this week, I took a step back for some “me time.”

I got up and did yoga one morning and felt really good about it afterwards. Another (more materialistic) thing I did was to settle on a new tote. I have an obsession with totes. I really love the Madewell transport tote, but it’s too much for my college budget. And deciding between black and brown was a whole other issue. I found this Street Level reversible tote from Nordstrom, and I love it. Fantastic price, and I didn’t have to decide between black and brown!

The moral of this story is to do little things that make you happy. I’m not saying shopping will make you feel good (although it might), but making wise investments into staple wardrobe pieces makes me feel proud of how I’ve evolved and how my style has changed. And make sure you do things that are good for your inner self, like yoga. Anything where you can clear your mind and just be.

I’m looking forward to a fun weekend of doing more things that make me happy, like laughing with my friends and drinking copious amounts of coffee while watching The Food Network. Have a great weekend!

    I use my slow cooker pretty regularly but I've never thought to use it to make breakfast, genius!

      Neither have I, so I'm glad I have another way to use mine. Thanks for stopping by, Alex!

      I know they are fantastic heels! And I can't believe how much the entire cast looks the same as they did when they were on the show. Crazy. Thanks for stopping by, Zelle! xo

    Loved your links! And I totally love that you're doing yoga to get some "me" time in! (I mean, you totally know I'm on board with shopping as well)

      Hahaha yes of course. Yoga costs a little less than all of the shopping I do, but boy do I love shopping too. Thanks for reading, Dana! Have a great weekend!

    I love doing yoga in the morning! I was looking at that same wrap on Lululemon – and totally didn't realize it went on sale 🙂

    Love the bag! Let me know what you think of it when it arrives / if its good quality because I need a new bag for work!

      I got the bag, and it's a fantastic quality! It also comes with a wristlet too. I would definitely recommend it. At the price, you just can't beat it.

    Ahhhh THAT BAG! Its genius, such a good price, (which you would never guess by looking at it) and like you mentioned, reversible so you can switch between sides to match your outfit. Amazing find Ellen!

      Yes! It made it much easier when I wouldn't have to decide between black and brown. Enjoy the rest of your weekend, Paige. Thanks for reading!
