Weekly Recap: Five Things That Make Me Happy
Friday, 4 November 2011
So, if you follow my tweets, you know that I have been stuck with this disgusting cold that makes me sound like Little Wayne. I haven’t been able to make it any further than the coffee shops near my house and when I do, people stare at me like I’m a modern day Medusa about to turn them into stone…Especially when I cough. So, I thought that I’d end the week with a blogpost to make me think of all the things that I’m happy about. Ward off this cold once and for all with some good juju. Despite the temperature dropping, my chest tightening up by the nanosecond, and other things that have made this week relatively tiring and tough – I’m determined to have it end on a positive note so that next week can begin with just the same.
1. My new obsession with Men’s Trouser Socks. I hit the jackpot in Forever 21 and H&M’s menswear departments. I’m not a sock-wearer so getting in on the new trend of the boots and socks combo meant I had to go shopping. The Women’s department of F21 and H&M were charging $7.50 to $10 for lengthy socks. I was like, “Uhm. No.” Then I remembered that when I wear men’s trouser socks, They go up pretty high. Off I went to venure and score! They’re $4.50 for a pack of two. And they’re super thick and aren’t obnoxiously colorful.The boys’ department in H&M has some cute striped socks, too for about $7.95 for 5 extremely colorful pairs.
2. Meeting Martha Stewart Tomorrow at Macy’s Union Square. Kinda totally intimidated by that woman but I’m sure she’s harmless. I’ve read and watched her most my life and it’s no questioni that she is just a genius at making things both simple and elegant. You can meet her, too. With any qualifying $75 Martha Stewart product purchase or the purchase of her new book. The event starts at 11:00 AM. See you there!
3.Gel Manicures. For my birthday last week my mom sent me off on a manicure to try the new Gel Nail Manicure. That thing is crazy. A week later, it still looks like new, feels like smooth plastic, and it dries instantly. With all the typing I do, I just might start investing in this kind of thing. I’ll document as I go along to see how long it really lasts, how they take it off, and if it really jacks up the natural nail. (Like so many people have been telling me. Yikes.)
4. My Husband’s “Forever Alone” Face. It makes me laugh no matter how shitty, crappy, or tired I’m feeling. It’s nice to know that no matter how many times we’ve probably wanted to kill eachother, his simple reenactment of juvenile meme humor can make me forgive him for almost anything.
5. San Francisco’s Growing Food Scene. These past two weeks I’ve eaten at such amazing places in San Francisco. From Citizen Cake, Pizza Inferno, The Summit SF, Bi-Rite Creamery, Tartine Bakery, Dianda’s and last night at Locanda (Ah-mazing!) I can’t say enough about how awesome the choices of local eateries have become. I’m almost tempted to create a blog just for my food adventures since I feel so selfish not sharing and keeping the information all to myself. But… We’ll just have to see.
Of course, I’m also absolutely happy and thankful for my awesome friends and family. On a very personal level, these past three months have not been easy, incredibly sucky actually, and I really don’t know what and where I would be without all of them. I’m the luckiest person in the world to know such amazing individuals!
