WHAT I'VE BEEN UP TO:
Catching up on the fifty books challenge, wearing a fluffy robe all day on weekends, taking two daily walks at work, and getting back into yoga.

READING:
The Woman I Wanted to Be by Diane von Furstenberg. I've been wanting to read DVF's memoir for awhile and, with only one chapter down, am completely loving it.

WATCHING:
Tons of Kardashian re-runs because I'm just so intrigued by Kris and Kim's branding and publicity prowess. There are real lessons to be learned here. 

LISTENING:
I've really enjoyed this playlist for workouts as well as the Gatsby soundtrack which always gets me in the mood for summer.
