Hi, y’all! Can we chat about connecting with people in-person and how important it is?This week I grabbed dinner and drinks with a good friend of mine from college and had the best time. We caught up but also got into a little conversation about how easy it is to isolate yourself these days. Think about it – I can stay in the house all day and talk to tons of people on social media all day long yet still feel blah at the end of the day… or lonely even! Don’t get me wrong, I love chatting with everyone on social media but I seriously believe that there is just something special about connecting with someone in-person. It’s impossible to replicate! I’m paying special attention to my mental health (one day I’ll write why) and I’ve noticed that I need that human interaction so I’ve been especially dedicated to setting up lunches, dinners or just meet-ups from week-to-week. If you find yourself in a similar rut of loneliness, try reaching out to someone from your past (and, no, I’m not talking about that toxic ex-friend that did you dirty) and setting up a meet-up! I think that you’ll be happy you did 😉
This was taken on BCK’s patio! They’re part of Houston Restaurant Weeks and the menu is delicious.
Now, let’s switch gears to something else that I am super excited about. I’m introducing y’all to a new monthly series – DSW PICKS OF THE MONTH! Every month I’ll head to DSW, try on a few pairs of shoes that are relative to the season or upcoming season and highlight my top picks. Not bad, right?! I try-on so that you don’t have to!
Below is a snippet of my trip along with my top picks for the month. I hope that you enjoy the read and have a great weekend!
