Happy Wednesday! Hope your week is going well. I, for one, am just glad I got a post up today! I’m currently in the midst of a few weeks where I can barely keep my days straight. Luckily, after this week, life should be back to normal and I can have a few nights to myself to relax and mornings where I don’t have to be up at 5:30 to fit in a workout.

I’m still absolutely loving receiving new Rocksbox‘s a few times each month. I typically wear my pieces for about a week before sending them back which gives me three new boxes every month. My favorites so far have been bangles from Margaret Elizabeth Jewelry. Try out a free month of Rocksbox with the code “pineapplesandpearlsxoxo“.
I booked my last manicure using the new app Pretty Quick. It allows you to peruse salons in your area and book directly through the app. Tip is automatically included, which is perfect if you’re like me and always forget cash. Plus, if you book at least one service each month, you qualify for their VIP program which takes 20% off each service you book. Get a free manicure when you give it a try.
Speaking of nails, I decided to try Sally Hansen 2 step Gel Miracle. While I’m not going to say it look quite as good as a salon gel manicure, I am on day 2 without even the tiniest of chips or noticeable wear on the tips of my nails (this is seriously impressive for me.)
I am absolutely obsessed with the adorable gingham shirtdress that Krista of Covering the Bases wore in her outfit post today. Navy, white, AND a shirtdress? Perfection.
When you read an article and it sums up perfectly all those twitter posts you can’t stand. While I’ve been known to throw an incomplete sentence around to make a point, I just can’t get behind this style of writing. I get that it makes your feelings seem universal and identifiable out in cyberspace, but I don’t have to like it.
Though I’m as chatty as the next girl, I’m definitely an introvert at heart, so I loved this article from The Everygirl on 7 Tips for the Introverted Career Woman.
On that work note, I’ve started a Pinterest board with creative office spaces. I love my current apartment, but I’m definitely itching for a move and I hope to have the room for a true desk area. Working on my bed, or at the kitchen table, or in the living room is great and all, but it’s time for a designated work spot.
If you ask my favorite movie, I’ll probably tell you “any Julia Roberts movie in the romantic comedy genre.” Pretty Woman is definitely up there at the top and I loved seeing the cast back together on the Today Show this morning for the 25th anniversary.
