Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend. I had a GREAT weekend. I made friends (more to come on that later)! Last night, Luke and I went to a gig at Studio Warehouse, and it made me feel really old. Not to mention, they have some of the rudest staff members on Earth working there. I think that’s a sign of my “old lady” coming out — I now base my experiences everywhere solely on the attitude of the staff. Lately, most of my customer service experiences feel like this.
Monday can be really motivating or totally crappy. It really depends which side of the bed you get up on. Seeing as I’m old and grumpy this morning — AND it’s dreary and freezing out (OVER it) — I would like to share five items I think would totally make starting the week so much better.
1. This scale. I really don’t use scales often — as they are a life ruining (not to mention, basically useless) tool, for the most part. However, the Yay! Scale is definitely an item I can get on board with. I don’t actually think you can buy it yet, but mark your Christmas lists, my friends.
2. The Arm Sleeper’s Pillow. I totally need this. I wake up with my arm asleep all the time. I envy people who can sleep on their back — I cannot do this, not even after too many glasses of wine.
3. Cute photos of otters doing anything, really. Or hedgehogs. Or Norbert – have you seen Norbert? I can’t even.
I can be having the worst day and photos of otters and hedgehogs (or Norbert the dog) will stop me in my tracks. #BetterThanTherapy
5. Phwoarr Paint Concealer by Seventeen. This covers everything. After our late night and actually having a social life this weekend, I need all the help I can get. Also, this stuff is super affordable. Hopefully, if it’s not already available in North America, it will be available near you soon. It’s ah-may-zeeng.
I hope you all have a great Monday and a wonderful week ahead. Don’t forget to stop and google the otters — just, like, do it on your phone if your office has an IT person with a case of the Mondays.
Personally, I think every office should be mandated to allow 15 minutes of looking at adorable/funny stuff on the Internet.
I’m pretty sure they do in Japan.
I think I read that somewhere?

How do you perk yourself up on Mondays? How was your weekend?
I would have included exercise to this list, but sometimes I need more than cardio to get over myself.
