It’s my sister and Vishnu’s birthday week! These goofballs are two of my favorite people in the world. I can’t wait to celebrate with Vishnu this weekend (AZIZ!) and with my sister next week when I’m in Chicago for a work trip (she’s up there for a rotation).
Anyways, let’s get right to my Three Things Thursday…
I’m headed to Chicago for a few days next week! Not only will I get to see Aekta, but I’ll also get to spend time with my Chicago + London colleagues. And you better believe I’m going to try a new restaurant or two! Can’t wait!
(2) Burt’s Bees Lip Balm with pomegranate oil
When I was home last weekend, I saw that my mom had an unused lip balm sitting around. As is the case with lots of things my sister and I find at home, I asked my mom if I could have it.
I’ve been using it all week and can personally attest to the fact that this balm is awesome! I love how moisturizing it is. And it leaves the perfect pink sheen. Thanks, momma!
(3) Why Not Me? by Mindy Kaling
I’m a HUGE Mindy Kaling fan! I read Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) a few years ago, I watch The Mindy Project religiously, and I follow her on Instagram. Huge fan!
I’ve heard lots of great things about Mindy’s new book. So even though it wasn’t on my original reading list, I’m going to break my own rules yet again and read it next. Woo hoo! I see marathon reading Sunday being a thing this weekend.
Well, that’s all I have this week. Happy Thursday, and as always, thank you for reading!

I missed the end of the last season of Mindy in Brazil. I need to catch up so I can watch the new ones on Hulu! Can’t wait to hear what you think of the book. Happy birthday Vishnu and Aekta!

I’ve read Mindy’s first book, omg it was great! Had me in stitches pretty much the whole time. 🙂
If you liked the first one, def. be sure to read this one. It’s SUPER funny!
Have an amazing time in Chicago, can’t wait to hear all about it! And I have heard so many good things about Mindy’s new book that I may have to add it to my list. Have a great trip and fun at the birthday celebrations.

Thanks, Salma! Just finished the book this AM. LOVED it!
I was in Chicago last month and I loved it! I ate and walked so much!
I picked up Mindy’s book as well!! We should exchange notes when I am done reading it!
Just finished it! Let me know what you think 🙂
I just finished Mindy’s book – spoiler alert …it’s amazing and funny! (But you already knew that right). I’m also a lip balm junkie so I’ll have to pick up some of that Burt’s Bees balm next time I see it!
