When life gets crazy (as it usually does), it’s not uncommon to find my car parked outside of a 7-Eleven as I dash inside to grab some refreshment like LIFEWTR before meetings. I’m constantly on the go, and nothing really tops this in terms of convenience. Trust me, I’m all about convenience.

Though I’m typically running around like a madwoman trying to stay true to all of my commitments, my personal health and wellness still remain at the top of my list. Always. It just has to. I know all too well what overworking myself looks like, and it’s not pretty!

Ahh another week, another “Weekend Edit”.

This weekend was particularly fun, because I was in Pittsburgh visiting Richard & Pixie, our little Chi-Pom (Chihuahua x Pomeranian) pup. I wasn’t able to stay long, since I had class this morning, but the short little vacay was much needed and appreciated. 

Also: for those of ya who don’t know, R. is stationed in PA this semester for an internship, while I’m here in New York finishing up my undergrad degree. So, even just 36 hours spent together is better than nothing!

Ahh, self care. The oh-so-trendy topic that’s simply everywhere on the web right now. It sounds very Gwenyth Paltrow if you ask me, but I love that #treatingyoself is actually becoming a legitimate practice. 

I mean, if you’re not taking care of yourself, what ARE you doing?

Am I right?

I do think that there’s this huge misconception though that self care needs to be some elaborate, expensive, time consuming, etc. process. In reality, self care is a gold mine for us boss ladies.

If you’ve had the chance to peruse my ever-growing library of fashion content, you may have noticed that I’m not typically one for flashy jewelry. I love a statement necklace just as much as the next girl, don’t get me wrong. However, I have a few staple pieces that hold a lot of meaning to me and that I wear almost every day. 

Try to spot them in the next outfit post I publish 😉 

Anyways, I thought it’d be fun to give you guys a rundown of the pieces that you’ve probably already seen on me and will continue to see for a long time to come:

It’s hard to believe that we’re rapidly approaching the one year anniversary of Brooke’s adoption. It’s funny, because it seems like she’s grown up so fast, yet I can’t really imagine life without her anymore. 

For those of you who don’t know, we rescued our favorite itty bitty pitty last spring when our golden doodle passed on after a rough battle with cancer. We didn’t really intend on getting another puppy, but our great dane, Rex, had never known life without a companion. 

Bringing Brooke into our home was honestly the best thing we could have done, as she lightened all of our spirits and helped alleviate some of our grief.

It’s been a hot second since I posted the last ‘Weekend Edit’, when I shared R.’s birthday celebrations and an official reveal of our new puppy Pixie. However, I’m happy to be back with another recap after a bit of downtime! I love sharing a look into my daily life with you guys, and I hope that you enjoy learning a bit more about me as well. 

As for this weekend…

It. Was. BUSY.

1. THIS CHAI TEA SMOOTHIE

I saw this recipe rounded up on LaurenConrad.com this week, and I couldn’t resist adding it to this list too. It just looks so delicious, doesn’t it? 

2. A PERSONALIZED PET NOSE NECKLACE

This personalized necklace is one of the coolest things I’ve found on Etsy in a long time. You know how in love I am with my three fur babies if you’ve read this post, and this rose gold custom necklace is the perfect, fashionable way to show it!
