The Weekender // No. 21

mylo-coffee-co-little-rockBusy Times; Happy Times

It’s the weekend, and I’m excited about it! This week marked my first full week back at teaching, and I’m enjoying getting settled into a routine. It’s so fun to have so many of the same students back this year, and I can’t wait to watch how they grow as pianists. Apart from teaching, I’ve been working on one of my new year’s resolutions this week. I set myself the goal of completing 10 days of The Miracle Morning, which involves a 5 a.m. wake-up time. Right now I’ve finished two days, and although it’s been a challenge to get myself up early, I’m really enjoying the extra quiet morning hours. It’s also helping me get through my reading list, and I’m loving that. This weekend I’m planning to work on a sewing project, (hopefully for a new video tutorial on Sunday!) do more reading, and maybe pay a visit to my favorite local park for a walk with coffee.

It’s the weekend friends, and I’m soaking in all I can of this lazy, sunny Saturday. My week was busy, full teaching, working, and spending time with friends and family, and of course, drinking a lot of coffee. I’m spending my weekend preparing for Monday night’s event, working on some fun projects I’ll be sharing soon, and playing the music from La La Land. It makes for a pretty great weekend afternoon, and I’m grateful for this time to recharge and work on my personal projects! As usual, I have some links for you this weekend listed bellow. Also, if you’re planning on coming to the Galentine’s Day event, I’d love to hear!

From how to wash silk to where to buy a Valentine’s card, this week’s links have got you covered.

A Summer Wishlist (with a heart!)

Summer WishlistMy intention in writing about fashion ethics is never to make you feel guilty somehow about where you shop or what you buy, but rather to provide you with amazing alternative resources to traditional brands in case you are interested in them! I’m new to this journey, and I want to share this part of my life here on my blog. In the spirit of this intention, today I’m sharing a list of things that look beautiful and amazing to me, and that also just so happen to be ethically produced or accessible. It’s a win-win, am I right?
