What a week it's been! Perhaps you may have noticed my slight delay in visits, and even a small social media hiatus. Well, if not, then it's because I did manage to squeeze in a few tweets and reads here and there, but most importantly I have been enjoying life, yet extremely busy. Rest as well as clearing my head from stress was needed. However, it was a progressively delightful week nonetheless.
My new workout has started to kick in, so happiness abounds! Earlier this week a couple colleagues who recently changed locations moved into a new flat and hosted a small gathering. There was a feast rolled out, delectable food, grilling, and excellent company. It was simply perfect timing!
Above: Grilling time: marinated lobster tails, Break-time: Caffeine intake for the week, flight/bag situation, blackened salmon, potatoes, more food, and unseen vegetables.
Time and Date:
The one and only time I needed to carry on, my bag was delayed and threw my schedule off, but it arrived later safe and secure. We have also been trying to figure out mini-holiday travelling plans and did, only to be alarmed by me having to modify my tickets because of a special work project. As frustrating as it was to change plans it actually all worked for the better, and I was so happy to get amazing customer service on both accounts. Right, then even more news came when a (military) family friend (who is like a brother to me) talked about his wedding dates having to be altered ... now being sooner than expected ...
Count Your Blessings:
But, that's life and as unexpected moments occur sometimes you merely need to look on the positive side of it all; despite how inconvenient some situations may seem initially there is good flowing in the midst. Fortunately, the pleasing part of everything was the fact that I was able to make the changes necessary as well as complete a loaded list of other tasks this week. So, thankfully ... yes, mission: accomplished.
Next on the agenda, seeking birthday gifts for loved ones—both people being very selective ... oh, the fun begins! Obviously, online shops will be playing a huge role in the "suggestions box."
All of this business allowed me to remember an outfit that I wore some time ago for a shopping venture. Layers are always key for my style since I often get cold.
Additional bonus: being able to bring out my camouflage denim once more.
With simple solid knits layered together I opted for boldness on the bottom of my outfit. I'm not sure how you like to look when you shop, but I always need to be comfortable. Of course, stylish and relaxed absolutely need to be merged somewhere in the ensemble, especially when extended walking is involved!
Wishing you a happy weekend! Do you have any exciting plans on your weekend itinerary?
