this & that, volume 15

I’m getting married in 3 days. Yup, THREE. And I’m blogging? Yes. Why? Because I front loaded all of the stressful stuff for the wedding and now I am trying to distract myself from my impatience (I want it to get here already!!).

Highly recommend front loading, by the way. I asked all my married friends what stressed them out the most about their wedding week, and then did my best to get all that stuff done 2 months ago. Proooobably the best decision I’ve made so far (other than marrying Idan, heh).

I haven’t done a this & that post in a hot minute, so here’s a sampling of what’s been catching my attention over the last few months:


Links I Love:

Something I’ve been trying to live by since I read this article: assume others are doing the best they can.

I finally created a Shop–here I list every skincare product I own, use, and love. I *think* I finally nailed down my perfect skincare formula and am excited to share!

This woman hired a fake male assistant and doubled her income. HMMMM.

We’re all guilty of this: emailing while you’re on PTO is a quick way to ruin company culture.

This mug cracks me up and I think I need to just bite the bullet and buy it (sold out at the moment, though).

I place a high sentimental value on objects, whereas Idan does not. This article was so interesting for me since we moved in together about 8 months ago.

I’ve been trying to make copycat Cava bowls at home, and I found their recipe for lamb meatballs! My mouth is watering just thinking about these. A+ recipe!

Whenever I feel a cold coming on, I take this stuff, and the cold dissipates. I have never felt so strongly about a product!

This is a good roundup of lunches you can meal prep!

A more serious read: how the loss of U.S. psychiatric hospitals contributed to our mental health crisis.

I’m so obsessed with my Ember mug.
