The other day I tweeted that I wanted to create a whole new account in which I could be the queen of overshare. I'm not actually going to, and hopefully no one swipes that name and pretends to be an inappropriate version of me.
But - and I don't do this often - I'm having such an amazing day that I wanted to sit down and write about it so I don't forget about it. And it likely will be a little TMI and I'm in a babbling mood so I don't actually expect any of you to read this. This one's for me.
Sometimes I do an 8AM Soul class on Fridays but I decided that I wanted to sleep in today. I woke up at 9:40 and had a few bowls of cheerios... talked to BHB online... and decided to have a super productive day, and indeed I did.
I wore my Joe Fresh boyfriend jeans for the first time. I can't believe how soft they are for $29. I got my big bag of clothes to sell/give away, threw my spin shoes and some Lulu into a tote in the event that I decided to spin and headed out the door.
I grabbed a cab down to the Union Square area. My first stop was Beacon's Closet (resale shop). I'm so happy they opened a shop in Manhattan. I went to the one in Williamsburg last summer and made over $200. I dropped off my bag at the sell counter and browsed. They have a LOT of stuff... a lot of designer stuff, at that. Found a gorgeous Jay Godfrey dress in my size for $40 but it was snagged, quite obviously, on the front. I looked a lot but didn't find much else in my size. I made $75 and didn't buy anything, but will definitely be going back soon.
Afterward I headed straight to Lululemon for underwear. I bought a Technithong at the Lulu shop in the Southpark mall in Charlotte, NC last weekend and love it. Like everything at our beloved Lulu, it's pricey, so I picked up one pair and a pair of the Foxy to try those out. I'll go back for more but I have to space the purchases out for now.
I had a pass for a free walk-in class at the SoulCycle studio in Union Square and had checked the schedule ahead of time, so I knew there were tons of bikes open in the 1PM class. It was with an instructor I knew nothing about but I decided to give it a shot. I headed to Jamba Juice for an all-fruit smoothie before walking to Soul.
It was so nice to take a class in the middle of the day when I normally take them in the morning or evening... refreshing, really. But it was no cake walk! The instructor was tough and I was drenched in a little more sweat than usual, but I'm so glad I did it. Gotta love of a free class!
Afterward I treated myself to a big lunch of salad and sushi. I got a text from Perri saying that she was starving and had no cash (I love you, but TYPICAL) so after I finished lunch and paid the bill, I met her at Starbucks and got her a drink and a snack. Her class was in the neighborhood so she was able to run over on her break. We only got to spend about 15 minutes together but it was such a nice surprise. I also treated myself to the new Brown Sugar Walnut Tart... heaven!!! Definitely my new favorite sweet treat.
I was carrying a lot of stuff (my tote, spin shoes, spin clothes, and some clothes Beacon's didn't want to buy that I wasn't quite ready to part with anyway) but it is such a gorgeous day out that I decided to walk home rather than take the subway. I took a quick stroll through Barnes & Noble for inspiration, like I often do, and stopped in Bath and Body Works for a new lotion. I also got two baby candles... a peach scent and a beach scent. They look so perfect on my monogram tray... I'll have to post a photo.
The walk home was so nice. It's always nice when it's a beautiful day out but to truly enjoy it and bask in the sunshine and wind is something else.
Now I'm home and even though I've had a productive day, I'm looking around at my messy apartment and reminded that there is still much to be done. Happy weekend to anyone who made it this far! Here's to many days like this one in the future.
