I find it a little poetic that the same week I had scheduled for my #bossbabe gift guide, I was actually picked to be part of one. I am so honored and thrilled that Lee thought my Like a Boss print would be a good fit for her blog post! And it’s too funny that we had and idea to do a gift guide with the same idea behind it. Great minds do think alike.

I want to address something semi-political before I dive into the good stuff. I went through a phase where I really wasn’t sure if I liked the terms boss babe, girl boss, etc. because what’s the difference? We can build our empires just as vast as men so why do we need to add our gender to the term boss? But now I see it as a club. As a boss babe, I am joining so many other women who are carving out a space for themselves- business owners, bloggers, entrepreneurs, role models, activists, advocates. Women who are not afraid to take risks and just do it. I’m proud of that, and they should be too.

And to be perfectly honest, sometimes just getting up, putting on a brave face, and going out into a world that historically sees you as less than is the most boss move of all.

So treat yo’self or a fellow boss babe to something sweet this holiday season because they earned it, and so have you!

While Kendall + I absolutely adore our Glover Park apartment (aka Pride Rock), we often talk about what it’ll be like to have our own home. We’ve done a pretty good job of compromising on decor here- our bedroom is grey, blue, and black; living room is navy, grey, and orange- nothing too girly in either space- but I think we would each love a space that is purely our individual style. I grew up with pink, pink, pink everything, and left that with my college dorm room opting for combos of the colors above instead at my room at my parents’ house and my first apartment.

However, I’m kinda digging the idea of a perfect pink sugary office space for me to expand on my girl boss dreams. Right now my “office” is my spot on the couch, and I’m happy with that for the time being, but a girl can daydream. There will be pink. There will be gold. There will be rose gold. Light, airy, feminine, maybe with a hint of western/ Native American motif.  If you had a space that you could decorate, just for you, what would it look like?

Y’all. July was a month if there ever was one. I resigned from my position at the firm to start a new chapter (next week) and have jumped a few personal hurdles- one of which I think will be coming to the blog soon if I’m brave enough. I’ve been terrible about working out, which I’m feeling and need to get back to that. Working 12 hour days to prepare myself and the firm for my departure was not conducive to working out or really healthy in any way.

Kendall has started traveling for work, which he loves, so I love. I’ve been experimenting in the kitchen more and cooked shrimp for the first time in my life.

Life happens and it keeps moving- that’s kind of the theme for me right now. I’m taking this week off between jobs and I couldn’t be happier to catch my breath. I’m currently blogging from my parents’ basement while my dad cooks a steak. I’m waiting for a call from my wedding DJ. I’m relaxed and I’m happy.

Here’s what I’m craving this month:

I’ve been eyeing the Steve Madden Dainna-L in leopard as the most perfect heel for fall. It has that chic pointy toe and the block heel I require.

There are a ton of Betsey Johnson work appropriate dresses included in the #NSale, but I’m digging the short sleeves and applique on this Fit & Flare Dress.

Speaking of applique, I’m not sure why but I am seriously loving destroyed and appliqued sweaters like the emory park Embroidered Rose Distressed Sweater.

Summer may be starting to wind down, but my Maryland self would use this Don’t Be Shellfish Tote Tote always.  And I mean really I need another purse like I need a hole in the head but I can’t get over this Ted Baker London Blossom Leather Tote. Got the MD vibes with the crab, DC vibes with the blossoms.

Also from my post yesterday, I love love love love the Banana Republic Embellished Sheath Dress.

I have an adorable Miss to Mrs. tumbler that I use always, but how cute is this I’m Getting Meowied Mug? It’s my time to enjoy this stuff right?

I have somehow scratched both pairs pink cat-eye sunnies I got this spring, and these 46mm Round Cat Eye Sunglasses are under $15 so…

My Macbook case has been through the wringer and is now cracked. Upgrade to this super gorgeous Hard Case Macbook Pro Case or nah?

I have been looking for a perfect rose gold nail polish. Oh hey Kendra Scott with your Rose Gold Metallic Nail Lacquer.

Treasure & Bond High Waist Crop Jeans fit my personal jeans requirement perfectly- high-waisted, cropped, and distressed.

I have yet to find espadrilles that I love and that also feel good on my feet- but Platform Sandals? I could try that!

 What are your August plans and wishes? Let me know in the comments!

Snowbird
Tying ribbons up in your hair
Wishing that I could be there
Stay awake, stay aware- The Ready Set


I have to be totally honest here- I got the inspiration for this post from DC to a T. I follow Sarah on Instagram, and actually messaged her to see if she would mind if I stole her idea from one of her posts. Thanks girl!

I loved the idea of wintry items that don’t scream holidays. When I think winter, I think icy blues, cozy scents, and cuddly knits. It’s been a pretty mild winter thus far, specially considering that our one day with teen temps was technically in fall, but I’m hoping for at least one big snow so that Kendall and I can have a snow day together. Our plan is to somehow make it from Glover Park to the Lincoln Memorial to enjoy the snow- whenever it gets here. I also have my mom’s beef stew recipe so on this fantasy snow day, I’d put the stew in the crock-pot while we went out to play so it would be nice and hot and ready for us when we got back.

Until then, we have our cozy little apartment, an arsenal of scented candles, and warm wishes for days. What wintery things can’t you live without?

It was our turn, ladies, earlier this week, but I actually really enjoy putting together gift guides for guys. It’s a little refreshing to do something different- plus I love shopping for other people and this year I get to shop for my own guy.

I’m also thinking that because I’ve never pulled a male in my office Secret Santa, this might be the year and I should be prepared. Like my gift guide/ stocking stuffers for her, these goodies for him are all under $25, so they could be perfect for those office gift exchanges with a spending cap!
