Bundle of can you believe.. This was my yesterday #todaywasagoodday
1🙌🏾4) who needs the #metgala when you have @tkmaxxUK and a strong selfie game lol.. But for real this dress is extraordinary.. I've never seen anything like this in @tkmaxxUK and can you believe it was a return???!!! Someone bought this and TOOK IT BACK 😭 @macduggal at £160 I had to leave it In the shop.. But can we just appreciate how the designer made fancy tile artwork look acceptable on a dress.. 5🙌🏾6) dress up is so much fun.. I do it as a pick me up every so often.. And of course my @katy_kibbs_design #MagicalEarware (oh you thought I wouldn't lol) the shoes I had for a while now but these pink glitter sunnies from thrift store for 1.50 the day before.. I always wanted round frames since I was a kid but these are the first pair that suited my face, I'm sure there's a lesson in there about self love and patience #illtakeit .. Belt is also my own.
7) can you believe I won the #keepingfashionfresh
@nivea_uk thing?!!!?!! (first time i won anything since I was about 9 urs old.. It was 3rd prize raffle.. A doll I wanted) Lol I might have to oprah Winfrey these deoderants I'm keeping the lip colour and detox mask tho .. DM me if you want some... Its the invisible stuff that doesn't ruin your clothes I will likely keep the roll on but there is some night cream up for grabs too.. I can't linolool or limonene.. My face knew I was vegan before I did.
8) On my way to tkmaxx I had to stop this lovely lady and ask about her coat.. @bekliahb is her daughters page on my @perfectthingsblog I go into more detail

Ella making sure she's part of the first ping pong game we've played here in ages after the ending to a wonderful impromptu date night while Finn is having a blast at a sleepover. P.S. When in Northeast Minneapolis, trust that our local hot restaurant, Young Joni, lives up to its hype and more. #todaywasagoodday#huskies#ellalalalou
ball of yarn and needles- this one came together pretty quickly. not the colour palette i started with but love how it evolved.
you’d think since i stare at yarn all day i’d be able to get it right first go 🤦🏻♀️NOPE!!
it only took a dozen+ mini studies before hand to work out how to paint yarn convincingly 😂😂😂
Tonight, we had an open and honest discussion about race. Many thanks to the attendees and panelists including Bishop Eugene Bellinger, Pastor Bill and Lady Lynne Themelaras, Dr. Todd Walker, April Dominie, Attorney Sean Walton, and John Petrucci! Huge thanks to Kyle Strickland for moderating, and Rep. Hearcel Craig, who attended and provided substantive, and relevant remarks after having a very busy day. Many thanks to Pastor Marvis and Lady Alva McGowan for always supporting! Lastly, many thanks to Pastor Michael Young for the vision, and for reaching out to me to help move this event from idea to reality. I was particularly inspired by the diversity of tonight’s audience. Far to often, we hold these conversations in silos, and I was glad to see a balanced representation of Black and White attendees, engaging in a meaningful discussion not just about race issues, but also race reconciliation. #TodayWasAGoodDay#ColoringOutsideTheLines
dear @ralphreal ,
you may have heard someone randomly yelling out "Fraaaank!!!" during tonight's show in the bull city......lol, that was me.🤷🏾♀️
...i thought it was your name until, halfway thru the show, Google informed me otherwise...(my bad)🙄😬🤦🏾♀️🤦🏾♀️🤦🏾♀️
my memory lapse is no reflection on your level of dopeness tho!
(you were soooo crunk @ a show at king's back in 2016 that I have appreciated your vibe and musicianship eva since!🙌🏾🙌🏾). i pinky-promise to never yell the wrong name at future shows.🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣
supreme thanks for bringing your crunk vibe to my son's first oddisee & good company experience tonight!🙏🏾. he's almost at that age where he's too cool to hang out with his mom, but your joy on stage is palpable in the crowd, and because of it we found common ground to share that vibe and have a really dope experience together. #thatslove ♥️
(@oddisee was hella dope too!)
No school for mini today, so we enjoyed the extra time together. Booked her a massage- seriously, the girl works out so hard & has knots on her back! Then balanced the self care out with laundry, baking (recipe for an easy, ingredients we can compromise on snack instead of buying bars in my story!) and chores. Needless to say I didn’t work much today, but had time to ‘pin’ & rearrange my home office to get it closer to my #decorinspo pic via Pinterest right here. #oneroomatatime#thisoldhouse#todaywasagoodday#gratefulformybiz
Today was a good day:
Sun was shining.
Received a promotion.
Got my last run in before my half and felt relatively good.
The last three months have been stress filled. The recent Iceland vacation allowed me to clear my head and relax. It was the refresher I need. Even though I have not been able to stick to my training plan, I feel today made it worth it. I’m going to run Sunday. I’m not going to PR. But I am going to finish. And I’m going to hit the next one even harder! Life is good!
