Watching| Ocean’s 11, 12, and 13
> I know it may sound hokey, but we always watch the Ocean’s Trilogy before trips to Las Vegas. The movies are fun, even though we know the ending. We traveled to Las Vegas for the HR Technology Conference in September and managed to get in a little “fun” time as well. Our new fave restaurant? SushiSamba.
> I read a lot of blogs. I think blogs offer many interesting insights and they’re often timelier than printed publications which have a long production time. I use Feedly to organize my blog subscriptions. I can organize them by content topics. And their mobile app is equally awesome. If you want to read more blogs but don’t want to have them junk up your email, consider checking out Feedly.
Remembering|Truly Delicious Pumpkin Spice Treats
>I will admit it. I love pumpkin spice season. But it’s time for me to remember what I tried last year and what was good. Because let’s face it…some of it isn’t that good. Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Kringle? Good. Pumpkin Spice Cheerios? Not so good. If you’re a pumpkin spice fan, let me know your favorites.
Working On| My Travel Capsule Wardrobe
> You know I’m using Cladwell to make the most of my wardrobe. Well, I just discovered that Cladwell allows users to form capsules. With all of the travel I have coming up, I’m using it to put together travel capsules. One in black and the other in navy.
> The last few months of the year are always the busiest for me. Not just because of holidays. Fall conference season is upon us in September. I’m honored to be attending events in Park City, UT, Phoenix, AZ, and Las Vegas, NV. I’m also conducting training in Seattle, WA, Nashville, TN, and Alexandria, VA. Lots of travel and I love it!
Planning| Counted Cross-Stitch Project
> You know I’m a big fan of Guardians of the Galaxy. I saw a Rocket Raccoon counted cross-stitch pattern and am toying with the idea of turning it into a pillow. It could also be a fun project to work on while I’m traveling. It’s looking like a trip to Michael’s Crafts might be in my future.
Loving| Luna Play
> As I get older, I realize how important it is to take care of my skin. I’m lucky to live in Florida because the humidity is wonderful for my skin. But that alone is not enough. I just picked up a Luna Play. It’s a small electronic face cleaner (similar to a Clarisonic) but the size makes it perfect for travel.
Geeking| Apple Watch 4
> Okay, I don’t even have it yet but I’m seriously geeking about it after the September announcement. I love my Apple Watch 2. And one of the reasons I like it is because of the focus on health. I do feel there’s a difference between closing my circles versus counting steps. I also like getting reminders to take my vitamins. With the new heart rate features in version 4…I’m in.
What’s UP with you?
