It’s FRIDAY and Oprah has spoken:
I’m seriously grateful it’s Friday. I’m not entirely sure why but yesterday my body just about shut down. During my run I actually closed my eyes and almost fell asleep.
Falling asleep mid-stride is one of the dangers of running as slowly as I do (especially on Hansons) :D.
But in all seriousness I did close my eyes and found it hard to reopen them. I ended up cutting my five mile run down to three because I just needed to get home, shower and sleep.
Since nothing noteworthy really happened I thought I’d share some random things like my new mug! How cute is this?
If you’re interested, the mug is available on Etsy for $18 – $21 depending on the size you want. I’m pretty sure I’m going to pick up a few extra to store away as Christmas gifts!
Another recent Etsy purchase is this rose gold necklace. I love it in theory, but tbh the jury is still out on how much I love it in reality.
The coin itself is really cute but smaller than I thought it would be based on the pictures. The necklace length is also shorter than I thought it would be. To be fair the necklace was only around $17, so I should have realized I would be getting what I paid for!
I think I’m going to repurpose the K pendant from this necklace into something else and order the Kate Spade “K” necklace. (I should have just done that in the first place!)
Okay and now I have to get something off my chest.
Here we go…
I seriously dislike when people smoke at the beach. First of all, many people just throw their cigarette butts into the sand which is disgusting and lazy. There are trash cans everywhere, deal with your situation in a considerate way!
To follow that up, I hate when I run into a cloud of smoke. The sidewalks at my beach are quite narrow and during the summer they get very crowded in the evenings. There are families with kids, people walking their dogs, people walking for exercise, cyclists, runners and meandering tourists all sharing a small area.
Considering there is A LOT of research to back up the deadly effects of second hand smoke I think it’s rude and unfair to light up in a crowded area. Since I’ve never been a smoker I can’t say I understand how strong the urge to smoke can be, but I know some people use gum, patches or e-cigarettes to help manage their cravings (esp. in certain environments). It would be nice if all smokers did that in public, crowded areas.
