I've been loving this new little weekly series we have going on here! Weekly Bite is meant to recap my week in a true behind the scenes sort of fashion.
This week? High protein breakfast, Burberry, botox, and #NSale madness.
Monday was sort of a rough start to the week. I woke up with a raging cold sore on my face, so that was cute. I rarely ever get them (like once every couple of years). So I guess I was due.
BUT I tried out a super new breakfast I'm excited about. I was telling a girlfriend of mine that I struggle to eat protein in my diet and I was on the hunt for a lean and delicious breakfast. She suggested soft/hard boiled eggs, avocado, and smoked salmon.
It's so delicious. And packed with protein! I def had this every day of the week and intend to continue.
After work on Tuesday I did a little pre-Nordstrom Anniversary Sale round. I went to the store to check out the sale sections and randomly found this amazing Burberry jacket on sale! Yeah...I might've bought that.
I also had crazy guilt for buying such an investment piece that I immediately went home and did a crazy closet purge. I have a super strict "one in, one out" rule. This time it was like one in, thirty out. Lolz.
But really - I'm making a huge effort to invest in more classic, quality pieces so that I can get rid of fast fashion pieces I barely wear. It's a process.
Wednesday was 100% Nordstrom Sale prep. Honestly I really avoided any Nordstrom Sale posts and coverage for years - I used to be so annoyed with bloggers clogging my feed with "OMG #NSALE."
After doing sale coverage for one year - I have nothing but respect for those women now. Like dear Lord, covering the Nordstrom Sale is MAJOR WORK.
I spend Wednesday creating my top picks post and creating custom graphics for both the blog and Instagram. I wanted to make sure my content was a different approach to the Nordstrom Sale - I focused on basics instead of trendy pieces. Think staples you can wear for years to come and snag at a discount.
I included some snaps of my checklist for my Nordstrom Sale content. I was up until 2:30 am on Wednesday (technically Thursday) getting all this done.
I was exhausted come Thursday morning, but knew that the first day of the Nordstrom Sale was crucial to my blog strategy so pressed on.
After a full day at work, I went back to the store for a big try on. I wrote an entire post about it here and you can see everything I bought and how it all fit!
By the time I was done I was basically dead inside - but STILL KEPT WORKING.
My little bro came over and we shot a bunch of my Nordstrom outfits outside my apartment. You know, for the gram. I then did all the editing and plopped them into Planoly (the website I use to plan my IG feed).
And then I went to bed.
The main event on Friday was a little trip to Skinspirit for a Botox refresh. I've written an entire blog post on my experience with Botox here. Basically I'm obsessed and Lauren at Skinspirit is my angel.
The weekend was super chill and relaxing! I did some SoulCycle and happily ate all my calories back with a dinner at our close friend's house. They made delicious pork chops. They also served it with garlic cooked in a style I had never had before. I think just roasted? Whatever. It was insane.
Until next week, babes!
