Happy {quarantine} FRIDAY! We’re gonna get real wild tonight and order curb-side Mexican food + margs. Do a happy hour FaceTime with my homegirls. And try to stay up past 8 pm? The question is: should I watch Tiger King? Or nah?

If I were going out for dinner – this would 💯 be my outfit.

Hi friends. Shit is just so weird right now. Still going through all the emotions. Stressed. Sad. Pissed off – that I can’t easily get the basics. Not trying to hoard, just need some necessities. Scared of the un-fucking-known. Happy to have more slow time.

Lets all remember to spread kindness. The world needs that shit right now!

Intentions for the Week:

  • Create a new habit – they say it take 2 weeks, and I’ve got that!
  • Stay healthy
  • Find fun ways to move my body without going to the gym
  • Take Charlie for lots of walks
  • Keep a positive mind
  • KonMari my closet
  • Master at-home mani + pedi’s
  • Come up with a tequila + emergen-C cocktail
  • Only purchase what we actually need
  • Work on my skincare

And since I think we all have extra slow time, I rounded up THE best board games. I read the reviews. Did some homework. Gathered a great selection of games all available on Amazon, so you don’t need to leave the house.
