“Rushing things you wish to bring to fruition will disrupt your journey. Allow the end result to appear naturally and without pressure. If you want it, if you speak it, if you believe it, it will come. Relax. Being disruptive to your journey will quickly humble you. Let things form, flow + grow freely. If you’re open, if you’re trusting of the process, if you’re hardworking, it will come. Relax. What’s meant for you will not pass you by. Timing is everything. Work for it while you wait for it. Attempting to expedite the arrival of what you want, wish or think you deserve, isn’t going to make it appear quicker. Grow with the process. Practice patience. Trust in the fact that you’re going to get what’s meant for you in due time. Be productive + stay humble. Because, timing. Because, faith. Because, you’re going to get what’s yours.” – Alex Elle

Listen. Eat. Wear. Read. See. Repeat.

Happppppp-y mother loving Friday, people. Are you as ready for a two day respite from work as much as I am? Good, good. Without further ado, here are a few things I’m feelin’. xoxo!

Listen

The ‘Big Little Lies’ soundtrack: The most perfect soundtrack to the most perfect TV mini-series just dropped. If you weren’t able to watch this murder drama that just ended on HBO, do yourself a favor and take today off (or if you’re at work, just walk out right now), hunker down in your bed, get online and immediately devour this series. I’m serious. And not only was this addictive drama the best thing I’ve seen this year so far on TV, but the soundtrack was ON POINT and masterfully laid into every episode, becoming a character itself.

Eat

These red wine braised short ribs were made by a friend last week and holy fall of the bones, Batman. They were so tender and mouth wateringly good, and according to my friend, pretty easy! Spring’s here but from what I’ve heard it’s still cold in most of the country, so you just go on ahead and make this comfort dish:

Wear

This Black Long Sleeve Zipper Jacket – $45, as originally seen on Ali Fedotowsky (so cute!) was my answer to finding a cute jacket that wouldn’t break the bank but could go over a dress or jeans. *Note: Get one size up, or else you’ll feel like Fat Guy In A Little Coat.

“The River At Night” by Erica Ferencik – What do you get when you combine Meryl Streep’s great movie “A River Wild” with a story about four best friends on a whitewater rafting trip in Maine, who become lost in the wilderness? A great, scary book.

“Rock and a Hard Place” on HBO – Inspired by The Rock’s own experiences with the law as a youth, this heartwarming HBO documentary follows incarcerated young people who are granted a second chance through a one-of-a-kind boot camp program in Miami and the opportunity to trade an extensive prison sentence for a fresh start. I didn’t know what to expect and was really pleasantly surprised. Get some tissues and watch this… trust me.

Have a lovely weekend!
