Happy Friday, Ambitious Fam! This week was hectic, draining, exciting, fun—-most adjectives occurring at the same time. I just realized that it has been a while since my last Friday Feels post (oops), but I thought that today would be a great time to share some blog updates and life happenings as we prepare to go into the holiday season!
Here are five things that gave me all the feels this week (sort of):
There are only 47 sleep until Christmas! While generally, I believe that Thanksgiving should get it’s own month to shine, I also know that the holidays can be a stressful season. I want to help you get the most out of the holiday season this year. Enter, my Ambitious Holiday newsletter series. Every Sunday, I will be sending out a newsletter than includes a Christmas Movie of the week, gift deals/ideas, fun holiday activities and MORE! Last year, I was a little lacking in Christmas spirit. Def making up for it this year! If you are already on my email list, then you are all set to get all of the holiday magic in your inbox. If not, sign up for my Ambitious Holiday newsletter here!
LIKE to KNOW it
Great news, Ambitious Fam! You can now shop my looks through the LIKE to KNOW It platform! Getting accepted into the RewardStyle fam was super exciting for me because it helped me meet one of my goals for the year and it helps me be a better resource for you! Full transparency, when you shop through my links it will allow me to make a teeny tiny bit of commission. In addition, I feel strongly about making sure that I am not contributing too much to fast fashion, but I also know that sometimes you just need a wardrobe refresh. Therefore, I will be sharing clothing that I believe in as far as durability, versatility, company standards, and investment pieces. I will be linking items both on the blog (shop my looks landing page coming soon!) and on the app. For now, check out and follow me on the Like to Know it app.
The DC Bloggers Closet Sale
Speaking of a wardrobe refresh, the DC Bloggers are hosting a Blogger Closet Sale! Not only is it a more sustainable way to shop, but you get to shop the closets of 30(!) of your favorite area bloggers and influencers (myself included)! There will be a variety of personal styles and sizes to shop from. The event is being held on Sunday, November 24th from 10 AM-2 PM at e-LOFTs in Alexandria and it is FREE to attend. Click here for more information and to reserve your spot!
Rock the Block
Last night, I attended the Rock the Block fundraiser held by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. It was a restaurant crawl of some of the best food places in Alexandria. It was so much fun!! The food was absolutely delicious (there was plenty of it) and it was a nice activity to do on a Thursday night. I learned that I need to strategize better next year because I was unbelievably full just 3 (out of 12!) stops in. Bonus: it was all to support NCMEC’s mission to help provide kids with a safe childhood. I’m glad that I was able to be a part of it!
Spider-Man Into the Spiderverse Sequel
Finally, in entertainment news, it was recently announced that Spider-Man into the Spiderverse is officially getting a sequel to be released in the Spring of 2022! I’m excited for Miles and the gang and I am interested in seeing the new direction that they take. If you haven’t seen the first movie, I highly recommend it! It is currently on Netflix (but I’m not sure how much longer they will have it).
