Monday Memo: Eleven


The two most powerful warriors are patience and time."

 – Leo Tolstoy


Goals For The Week

  • Get all of my annoying errands done. Currently have a trunk full of all the things! 
  • Put my phone away for the night at 8pm. I'm the worst about random google searches before bed.
  • Get back in the habit of reading before bed. 
  • Add a few more items to the @thegfgshop closet sale. Thank you to all of those who always shop!


Favorite Finds

  1. Michael picked up this shampoo and I ran out of my usual so I gave it a try out of necessity and WOW. So hydrating and smells amazing! I may be giving it a shot for a while.
  2. I've had my eye on this piece from one of my favorites, Josh Young, and finally pulled the trigger on it this weekend. Cannot wait to get it framed!
  3. Was reminded how much I love this song
  4. Been testing out something new and different over on the GFG Instagram and with lots of input from you all, I've decided the collages are here to stay! 
  5. Ordered this two pack for my inevitable wispy hairs! I wear a lot of pulled back ponytails, so hoping these keep me from bringing a hair spray everywhere I go. 
  6. If you missed last week's blog posts, I finally got my post up about transitioning to a plant based whole foods diet! It's gotten a great response so far, so hopefully you will find it helpful. 
  7. I highly prefer disposable masks (no mascne!) and just picked up these light pink ones to mix it up a little. 
  8. Picked up a new one of my favorite Lululemon pieces, the Define Jacket, and the willow green color is beyond perfect!
