weekend roundup: may 13 + 14

I'm still recovering from last weekend's bachelorette party -- honestly, though. It was so much fun + I can't wait to share with you what it was like to attend my FIRST bachelorette + my personal tips for any that you attend. But in the meantime, I'm crawling out of bed to give you guys some weekend reads. 

And ICYMI: that Spirit Airlines brawl? I WAS THERE. And my flight was delayed for HOURS, so I didn't get home until a few hours before having to GET UP for work. Not an excuse, but rather...yeah...it's an excuse, but I don't feel sorry for myself. I've been cooking up tons + tons of awesome content for you babes!

weekend reads {dec 3&4}

Hello and happy weekend! We are back for yet another round of weekend reads. I am writing from one of the most exciting events of the year, SharePoint Saturday DC! Not actually super exciting at all, but I was asked to attend and smile. So here I am. Silver lining? I have $300 of LOFT Cash to go spend after today. 

This week has been CRAY-ZEE. I don't know about you guys, but I had an event every night this week, and I was working from about 6 a.m. until 6 p.m. every day. I got strep, tasted the most amazing Chilean wine that cost less than $20. But I also got to hang out with Fashion Santa at the Ritz in DC and donate money. PLUS, last night I spent my afternoon at Sechoir Beauty Bar in Mosaic. I saw Walid, and he made me cry with how in love I was with the result. Anyways, I'm happy it's the weekend, and I'm honestly even happier to dig into some weekend reads. 

So with that, here we go: 

In a world of Donald Trump as the president, and viral videos of Star Wars masks, at least we know that the world likes to look up puppies. [Merriam-Webster]

And as if 2016 hasn't been enough of a shit show, the beloved Howard Shultz (Starbucks CEO) is stepping down. [Buzzfeed]

But, we can all breathe a sigh of relief knowing that the latest hipster parenting trend has surfaced in Brooklyn: Papa. [NY Mag]

Speaking of NYC, my favorite New Yorker, The Freckled Life, shared her favorite mules. And I literally want them all. Right now. [The Freckled Life]

Whether you're an entrepreneur, an inventor, or a recent implant into the startup scene, you'll want to read this piece on product development from Maxim. [Linkedin Pulse

Washington Post Editor Marty Baron won the prestigious Hitchens Prize. Then said this about journalism. [Vanity Fair

And I wouldn't be a DC foodie if I didn't share the best restaurant openings this week! [Eater DC]

weekend round up {sept. 17, 2016}

WeekendReading

Hello, hello, hello and happy weekend! I have had a crazy schedule lately packed with fun events, great people and experiences. For both work and home, the rest of September is going to be a whirlwind. But I sat down this morning with a strong cup of coffee and put together some of what I'm reading, drinking, doing, obsessing over. 

Stuff Mom (really) Never Told You: A podcast dedicated to talking about "the business of being a woman" from How Stuff Works. It's a great listen on the metro and helps you to think about the female in a different way. Plus the two hosts, Cristen and Caroline, are absolutely hilarious. They bring up amazing points on everything from female surfers to the work husband. Every episode is a think piece and every episode leaves me with a new opinion. Sorry for gushing, but no matter who you are, you should definitely give them a listen. 

Oh my god, I'm a blogger too! On Thursay, I was out a little past my bedtime for a lovely event at Illusions of Georgetown, where a bunch of DC bloggers sipped champagne, shopped with Stella & Dot and took endless photos. Plus, I met my new go-to hair angel. 

Which came first: The banana or the flavoring? A hilarious, run-on sentence piece about banana flavoring and how it originated. 

It's like ClassPass, but for your desk lunch. From the founders of everybody's favorite gym motivation comes a new startup called MealPass. Basically, one flat fee for cheap, yummy lunches from your favorite DC digs all week. They're finally launching in DC with a party THIS MONDAY. Join me and sign up to attend here. (hint hint: There may or may not be some fun HONESTLY THOUGH X MEALPASS collaborations coming

...I'm Delilah. Pop Culture Happy Hour did a little interview with (arguably) the most recognizable voice on the radio. Listen to her below or read this great piece on her from Buzzfeed

Buzzfeed is the queen of social: We all know Buzzfeed rules supreme. Here's to all the other social media marketers out there trying to prove your ROI. May they ROI be ever in your favor.
