Life Lately / 03

Life Lately / 03Well, hello there! Long time, no talk? Last week, as you likely saw, I took a much needed step away from the blog and online off to get myself back on track after a bit of traveling. I’m sure the abundance of coffee filled photos above let you know the kind of week I had. I decided stepping away from the blog and removing the pressure of posting was best, and it definitely was.

One / After a weekend full of traveling and a week playing catch-up, I spent a lot of weekend time in bed with coffee and my laptop designing, brainstorming and getting work done. My bed is no where near a hub of productivity, but now that colder autumn weather has hit the city, it’s where I love to be.

Two / Stepping out of my zone a bit, I’ve opted to try new flavors of everything! Read: I’m not going to cliche all pumpkin everything route for fall. I recently tried the peach flavored Chobani yogurt (I usually gravitate towards a berry flavor) and fell IN LOVE. Why did no one tell me about this little cup of magic?

Three / I recently made some design updates to to my regular weekly post planner (which I’ve been using in place of a monthly editorial calendar). I’ve been mapping out some exciting content to come, plus planning to share some sneak peeks into fun projects I’m working on!

Four / More bed time, more coffee. This week, I’m promising to put myself to bed at reasonable hours and remember the benefits of not being a zombie during the week. Still, nothing beats a warm bed and a hot cup of french vanilla coffee. Yum.

Five / Last weekend, I had the chance to travel to Washington, D.C for a conference. I didn’t get to see much of the city, but what I did see, I absolutely loved! The DC Metro positively shames Philly’s public transportation systems. I’m glad to have another city in mind for places to live post-graduation (which  is getting closer and closer, oh my).

Six / Early morning, heading out to DC. Waking up before the sun is rough, but views like this are absolutely worth it.

What have you been up to lately?

  1. I usually get the strawberry or blueberry chobani. I don’t like peaches…BUT!! I will TEAR UP a cup of peach chobani yogurt. I have no idea why it tastes so good!

  2. I miss DC so much. My husband grew up there so I was able to spend a few years there. My son was even born there. I am glad things are going well for you sweets.

  3. Amber, I really love your blog! I love to travel as well. 🙂

    Positive living is always great. I’ve turned myself around too. I’m trying new things and it feels amazing!
