Happy Friday. Boy, am I glad to see you! This week brought about a new normal. My schedule is ramping up as I've started working with several new clients, and I'm back to working out as well. Next week will be a good one, because guess who's turning 32? THIS GAL! My birthday is Wednesday, January 25 and even though my birthdays are definitely no longer the same since my mom is gone (she made each and every birthday felt like it was the best day ever AND like it lasted for weeks) I'm making a point to truly try to enjoy it this year. (For various reasons my 30th and 31st birthdays were both kind of womp-womp.) I took the day off from work, I'm getting my hair done, and I'm planning to relax as much as possible. My dad already gave me my present (this crossbody bag) and I told Ben no gifts this year, so my only wish is to have a beautiful, enjoyable day. Below are my favorites from the week... have a great weekend and I'll see ya soon!

The Affair was officially reviewed for Season 4!!!

Speaking of Showtime. Anyone else having Shameless withdrawals? I love this interview with Lip.

Do you lift weights in your running sneaks? You may want to rethink your workout footwear.

I love {and need one of} these handbag storage ideas.

I can't wait to read this book about eating for your personality written by my fav celeb trainer. 

I love these easy-to-make, grain-free pasta side dishes. It's like a cleaner version of those Lipton packets!

This eye makeup eraser stick saves me on a daily basis. #sweaty

Speaking of makeup, this fine liquid eyeliner has become a staple in my daily routine. 

I got Ben and myself matching Patagonia Better Sweaters for Hanukkah (gray for him, violet for me). I'm looking forward to the cheesy family photo they will most certainly inspire.

I recently discovered this brand of luxe, cozy basics in the Equinox Shop.

Anyone else still rockin' some gift cards from the holidays? Just ordered this pretty stackable ring set.

This sweet sweater makes me happy because it reminds me of my mom. (I also have a Club Monaco gift card.)

Last but not least, let's all go have a celebratory Eggo and martini at Cafe Jacque's because WILL & GRACE IS COMING BACK! (1,000 points to anyone who got that reference. I love you.)
