If you’re subscribed to my Newsletter, which you totally should be (have you seen the GIVEAWAY going on this week?! Scroll down, and SUBSCRIBE to enter to win!), you saw where I haven’t been able to consume any caffeine (read, coffee) for the past couple of days. I’ve been struggling … Today is my last coffee-free morning though! Thank goodness. Why no caffeine?! … Because I’m having my brows microbladed! Apparently caffeine affects how the pigmentation sets in your skin. Follow along on Instagram Stories over the weekend as I’ll be sharing the process plus the different stages of healing (basically, the brows are super dark at first, but they fade into their normal shade after a few days).
Now, for a little week in review!
Y’all seemed to really love Monday’s blog post where I shared my morning routine + three steps to help you become a morning person! I’ll definitely be brainstorming similar topics to write about in the future! If you have anything in particular you’d like for me to cover, just shoot me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or leave a comment below!
On Tuesday I shared the last stop on Michael and I’s European trip that we took earlier this summer! Check out the post to see why Amsterdam is my favorite European city that I’ve visited!
I mentioned on my Instagram Stories that I recently started attending meditation classes at Take Five Meditation here in D.C. I generally choose the 30 minute evening sessions as it’s a nice break right after work to have a half hour of quiet and calm. I really love it and will be doing an entire blog post on my experience so far. If you’re in the D.C. area and would like to try it out, you can use the code COBALT40 to receive your first month of unlimited classes for just $40 (normally $50).
I finally finished my beach read from earlier this month – Crazy Rich Asians. It was a fun, enjoyable read! Perfect for the beach and my morning rides on the metro! I might pick up Kevin Kwan’s next book, China Rich Girlfriend for my next beach trip coming up in a couple of weeks!
I visited The Brig where my friend Richard Kerr, who is a travel guru, contributor to ThePointsGuy.com and founder of the massive travel Facebook group, Award Travel 101, are co-hosting an event next Saturday! If you’re in D.C. come join us! We’ll be talking lots of travel with points and miles, there will be happy hour prices on beer and wine during the event, AND we have a few really good giveaways to hand out! If you’re interested in attending, all you need to do is RSVP here (it’s free to attend)!
I can’t tell you how excited I am to have ZERO weekend plans, no commitments. Hooray! I’m looking forward to leisurely coffee outings in the mornings and getting a lot of work done!
