{5} Lately…

Meg Gi

My friend Meg and me over the weekend at OxCart Tavern in my ‘hood.

Lately I’ve been…

reading  Onto Book 5 of the Harry Potter series.  Making my way…

writing  Some e-mails to folks in the advertising community.

listening  Another hit from one of my favorite collaborators, David Guetta and Sia. Check out “She Wolf (Falling to Pieces).”

thinking  That is it very frigid out there!!!  Brr…hat, gloves, and a scarf are a must in this weather.

smelling  Yankee Candle “Soft Blanket.”  My new favorite scent.

watching  My boss and I are currently partaking in a “Race to the Oscars.”  Our goal is to watch all of the films nominated for Best Picture before the big event.  So far, I have seen two out of nine.

wishing  That I hadn’t caught this cold over the weekend.  I spent my entire day off yesterday sick on the couch.  Hence my lack of a blog post yesterday.  Today, I am still sick and working from home.

hoping  That we can plan another girl’s weekend soon, because that one was SO MUCH FUN!  (minus the whole catching a cold from my cousin part)

wearing  Pajamas.

loving  Michelle Obama’s Inauguration outfit.  Way to go Thom Brown.

laughing  At this hilarious video “How to Dance When You’re High on Life.”  It totally reminds me of all my favorite guy friends when we go to Dewey Beach.  Thanks to my friend Trey for sharing this.

wanting  To be able to breathe out of my nose.  

needing  To get a lot of work done from home today, because we have a client coming into town tomorrow.

feeling  Extremely tired.  No matter how much sleep I get, I can’t seem to get enough.  Also, feeling very stuffy.

craving This Rebecca Minkoff Mini M.A.C.

clicking  I was featured on another leg wear website called Fashion Legwear for my ivory polka dot tights.  I was included with a group of bloggers for best leg wear of the week.  Scroll down about halfway, and you will find my pic.

What have you been up to lately?

Love,

Gina

{3} Lately…

lately3

Lately I’ve been…

reading  Just finished Gone Girl, by Gillian Flynn this week.  Holy intensity!  I would definitely recommend.  Also read the December issue of Health magazine.  Hoping I actually listen to what I read and start eating a bit healthier and getting back into my work out ways.  I’ve been a slacker.  Back to the reading…trying to decide the next book to open…I think I am going to go back to the Harry Potter series now that I got the last four books from my sister-in-law.  Nothing like a little magic around Christmastime.

writing  Still writing my Christmas cards!  Luckily, I was able to get most of them out this week.  However, I miscounted how many I needed, so those of you at the beginning of the alphabet (I went backwards this year) might be a bit delayed!  Oops!

listening  Cazzette’s Beam Me Up.  Nothing like a little alien take-over causing a city to erupt in dancing.  This one’s for you Charles.

thinking  About the Christmas shopping that I still have left to do.

smelling  Christmas Cookie candle by Yankee Candle.  Also loving the Warm Woolen Mittens scent.

wishing  That my tummy would stop hurting!  Stayed home from work yesterday mehhh.

hoping  That the bridesmaid dress I pick up tomorrow for my cousin’s wedding fits me like a glove.  Naturally being of my short stature, I needed some alterations. 😉

wearing  Lots of layers.  Although it hasn’t been incredibly cold so far this winter, I am forever frozen, and layers are a must in this city.  Today I’m wearing black leggings with a blue tank.  Black and white sweater overtop, with another multicolored sweater wrap over that.  Topped off with my bright yellow winter coat and Steve Madden boots.

loving  That the sun is shining right now!  A lot better than the rain we have had as of late.  Also loving that we are having some visitors this weekend.  And a maid is coming to clean before they get here, so I don’t have to tear my hair out.  Loving loving loving.

wanting  World peace.  Yes, that would be nice.

needing  Constant reapplication of hand cream.  The cold weather seems to dry my hands up so quickly!  Right now I am using Simply Clean from ULTA.

feeling  You ever have one of those moments when you just want to cry and you don’t really know why?  Well that was me yesterday.  Maybe it was a combo of being sick, stressed, hormones, who knows.  But just broke down.  Sad panda!  For no obvious reason.  I think it was just one of those days.  Luckily, today I am in much better spirits, and looking forward to seeing friends this weekend.

clicking  Through all the advertising trades this morning for news in the ad world.

What have you been up to lately?

Happy Friday!

Love,

Gina
