Royal Round Up, Vol 3: Week 15

No comments
Happy Saturday and almost a month into quarantine. I'm pretty sure I stopped going to work on March 13th. This is not how I thought the past few months would go but I'm sure no one did.

This week was so-so. I'm struggling somewhere between wanting to be productive and wanting to lay in my bed and do nothing. It feels like I'm two different people and I can't quite wrap my finger around it. Being in the epicenter of the virus, it's really jarring to hear first-hand accounts of what the hospitals are like and how many people I know/know of are losing loved ones to this. Mass graves are being dug and freezers are holding bodies on the streets outside of the hospitals. It's just a lot to wrap your mind around.

While I have my productive moments, it's still hard sometimes to sit down at my desk and churn a blog out. I have so many ideas and in theory, a lot of motivation but physically, sometimes I can't make myself do it which is why this post is coming on a Saturday night and why there were hardly any posts this week. I vow to always be better but sometimes I just can't. I'm trying to work on it though, for myself.

Quarantine is not a productivity contest but I feel good when I'm doing something, or when I feel like I accomplished at least one task.

For example, this morning I woke up very late (11:30 AM to be exact) after not sleeping all night and immediately cleaned my room, changed my sheets, and spend a good hour or so cleaning under my bed (lifted my mattress and box spring to vacuum UNDER MY BED) and changed some summer & winter clothes in my closet. After that, I felt like I got hit by a truck and showered, did my hair and took a nap.

Tomorrow is Easter and for the first time in my entire life, I won't be celebrating with my whole family. I'll be with my mom and my sister and we'll have a traditional Italian Easter meal but it's just weird.

I hope you are all staying safe & healthy, and staying sane because I know this is hard for everyone.

What I Bought This Week

I wasn't that bad this week and I know next week I will be even better. I'm finally getting all the shopping out of my system and can focus on what I have instead of what I don't. I had been waiting for months for this Miranda Frye ring to be back in stock so I finally scooped it up and I can't wait for it to arrive! 

I also needed to stock up on my Good Patch wellness patches. I'm working on an article for Fab Fit Fun on these but stay tuned for a blog report as well! 

Lilly Pulitzer is currently 30% off so I had to pick up a little something! Also, I've been busting for a Crislu Disney piece and picked this up. I can't wait to wear it every day!

I hope you all have a lovely rest of the weekend!
