Friday Finds || Vol. 3, Week 1

Bows & Sequins celebrating New Year's Eve!

Happy, happy Friday! I can’t believe I’m typing this, but happy 2019! It’s been a whirlwind of a few weeks… I finished up my Remote Year program in Mexico City which was very bittersweet, came home on Christmas Eve and got to spend a few days with my family, drove up to Chicago for a few apartment appointments, and flew out to Steamboat Springs, Colorado for New Year’s Eve in the mountains with some of my besties. It was such an incredible trip and was the perfect note to end 2018 and start 2019 on. Have I mentioned how excited I am to start the year?! haha I love the feeling of a fresh start!

Here are this week’s finds…

Six Steps to Embracing a More Positive Mindset This Year

This post is SO, so good. 30 Lessons I’ve Learned at 30

Clare V is having their annual 30% off sale! It’s the perfect time to grab a new little bag, especially if you’ve got a warm-weather vacay coming up.

Bows & Sequins wearing a navy striped tie-front crop top with navy pleated shorts and a straw tote.

See this original outfit post here!

My much-loved little straw bag is 30% off, and I’m absolutely eyeing this leather tote, this straw tote, this honey pot bag, and this festive scarf.

You have to feel these cozy Outdoor Voices pants in person, it’s the absolute softest!

My friend Kate is offering her business coaching again this year! She’s honestly one of the most creative, smartest people I know and I always love running any and all projects and business ideas by her to get her invaluable insight. You can just buy an hour of her time to get some insight on whatever your business idea may be!

I loved Grace’s post about setting large and small intentions this year!

And on that token… You can see some of my past resolutions here, here, & here.

Score 15% off at Tuckernuck with code FUN15! This giant basket bag is a staple and is only $48, pre-discount. How adorbs is this watermelon clutch? I could not love this shaggy straw bag or this honeycomb sweater any more than I do!ย This striped blouse (under $100) is so chic and if you feel like splurging, I’m obsessed with these mules.

Tis the season for my Third Love jogger set. I slept in these PJ’s almost every night of Remote Year and I’m desperately overdue for a new pair. They’re all I want to wear when I’m lounging at home!

My RY manager wrote a great article on LinkedIn about working with influencers on a four-month activation!

If updating your home decor is on your list of resolutions this year, don’t miss Anthropologie’s big home sale and 20% off at Gray Malin with code REFRESH20! There are so many great pieces of Anthro furniture that are 25% off, which is pretty huge. I’ll also be starting the decorating process once again as soon as I find a place to live and this insanely chic bed,ย these velvet chairs, this petite sectional, this rattan chair, this blush pink velvet sofa, this fun chair, and this rattan day bed are all on my lust list.

I’m growing a little bit tired Stan Smiths lately and have been looking for a cute all-white sneaker to replace mine. These are the pair I’ve got my eyes on! (They’re under $130!)

I really enjoyed this podcast with Mark Groves & Lacy Phillips.

Loving this little black bag under $80!

Public figures go to therapy, too.

I’m obsessed with this sequin dress, but it’s a major splurge.

Proud of Krista for opening up about the mental health struggles she’s dealing with.
