On Deadline Playlist

As of late all I seem to be is on a deadline. Work is just insane, TikTok is a lot, DFA is blowing up...yeah just many, many deadlines. So, I thought I'd create a playlist for when I need to sit down and bang out some work. You probably need to do that too so maybe you'll enjoy it as well — xoxo darling, Hayden.

Am I missing something? Let me know below!

Week Re-Cap

Happy Inauguration Day! How are y'all doing? I'm cautiously optimistic for everything happening today. Over the weekend we took a three day trip to the east coast — the middle bit where we rarely go. It was so nice to get away (and honestly felt longer than three days). We drank a lot of beer — outside, socially distanced of course and slept in. I thoroughly enjoyed it and needed it. Now it's back to work with a lot of things happening. So many balls are currently in the air but it will all be good...eventually. Check out photos from the weekend getaway below — xoxo darling, Hayden.

Malabar Scrub Sanctuary
I revisited Bongoland...and loved it even more!
New Smyrna Beach Brewing
Tomoka Brewing
Giuseppe's in Port Orange
We used to have Ritter's Frozen Custard near us but it closed when I was little. The whole fam missed it greatly and we stumbled upon it on the east coast. It was the best moment and it was just as good (if not better) than we remembered.

Martin Luther King Jr. Day

As the chief spokesman for nonviolent civic action, Martin Luther King Jr. should be an example to us all. Especially in wake of the Capitol terrorism that occurred two weeks ago. I am not suggesting we don't be violent — clearly time has shown that sometimes violence is the answer (I give you the Boston Tea Party, British women blowing up post boxes & the Stonewall Uprising). But simply showing up and doing the work, sitting at a lunch counter in 1960 or standing by your friends as a person they know they can lean on in a protest, that's what we should be doing. Recognizing your white privilege (me included) is difficult, but it must be done so we can better serve the cause at hand. Everyone in our country has a right to human rights (and more than that!!). So, on this MLK Jr. Day, I ask you to consider donating to Know Your Rights Camp and Fair Fight. These organizations are working to dismantle oppression through education, something we should all support. Hope y'all enjoy your day off but remember this day isn't about mattress sales, it's about educating yourself on the causes at hand. We must do more to make our country a better place for all — xoxo darling, Hayden.

New Year, New Wardrobe

I'm currently feeling like a wardrobe change-up could be nice so I thought I'd share everything that is currently in my cart. Some brights mixed with classic navy + neutrals — xoxo darling, Hayden.
