I can’t believe we’re less than a week away from Christmas! I’m flying off to sunny Florida for Christmas this year, so I’m frantically working around the clock as I’m getting ready to close up shop for 10 full days #ultimateluxury — I’ve had to be extremely disciplined to cross off everything off my to-do list and I’ve found that sliding every task into a very specific (and tight) time slot has actually increased my productivity by A LOT. Have you ever tried it? I pack my calendar full of 30 minute to 2 hour tasks to accomplish during the day and I don’t step away form my desk until everything is crossed off… I also use Toggl to keep track of tasks. Works like a charm.
In fact it actually works so well that I can actually take two full days off this weekend to go on a mini ski trip! I have to admit I wasn’t ready for skiing quite yet (to me it’s like accepting that winter is really here.. I’d rather fly off to the beach thank you very much) — but I also wasn’t ready to say no to a weekend getaway to the snow. Can you blame me?
This is probably the only sale you need to know about: up to 65% off off hundreds of products during Serena & Lily’s Private Sale! It ends at midnight! They’re practically giving away some of my all time favorites including this throw, this buoy pendant, this jute rug, these nesting tables, these chairs, this wall sconce and much much more. Don’t miss it!
