A Day In The Life | My Bold Moments

Back in October I shared a day in the life of what a regular work day was like. Well I thought it would be fun to share an updated day in the life since my days have evolved a lot in my job. These day's I'm a lot more vendor / client facing and with that change I know that I not only need to look put together, but actually be prepared for whatever get's put in front of me. I'm taking you along with me for the ride...

My mornings start out at 6:00 AM. On days when I have post going live, I'll be blogging away for about an hour, on days when there's no post Gary and I like to get a quick run in - it's about the only time we have together during the day. I have a pretty big client event taking place in a couple months and I've been going to the venue quite a bit, today's agenda includes meeting with the caterer to go over some logistics and it's going to be super hot, did I mention the walk through is outside?!! With such tiny quarters I have to be creative with my makeup setup (thankfully not for long since we're moving), but I let Gary take care of breakfast & coffee while I get my "face on" if you will and get ready for the day when I really need to be bold!
I don't change my purse out every day, but I do like to make sure the essentials are in there, especially when I'm not going straight to the office. Having bad breath is one of my biggest fears, specifically when I'm meeting people for the first time so I'm always carrying mints or a travel size mouthwash with me to make sure I feel like I just cleaned my teeth throughout the day, especially with all the cold brew I've been drinking.
With a CVS practically on every block here in Boston, no joke I pass three on my daily walk to work, I can pop in when I'm out of any of these, but especially the smaller sizes of the LISTERINE® Antiseptic that I can keep with me at my desk and it has to be the cool mint variety for the after taste. I like that they are strategically placed right near the candy - make sure you hide the evidence of cavities with brushing and rinsing - ha!  
About mid-morning I'm back at my desk and looking forward to crossing lots of items off my to-do list!! Some days I hit the gym at lunch for a spin or tabata class, but thankfully I was able to catch up with a friend over lunch! I'm not sure about you guys, but I would go to Bolocco at least twice a week, but after the whole Chipotle incident, I stopped going and seriously missed Bolocco. I'm happy to be back with my old friend! 
A few meetings, a couple items crossed off the to-do list and it's time to head home around 5. We've been all about salads during the week - they're just easy to throw together and we add some sort of protein to it. For the last few months, Gary has been making it home about a half hour before me and he's been rocking at making dinner! 
Does anyone else feel like the fly through dinner?! This is the second part of the day that Gary and I get to connect - for about 30 minutes until it's right back to work. Jackie and I are hosting, together with VS Photography our first Bridal Pop Up Event taking place in August and we've been trying to find an hour here or 20 minutes there to all chat about it. 
For some reason 7:00 - 10:00 PM fly by! The TV is usually on and the laptop is firmly placed on my lap! Usually I'm working on blog posts, business things or contributor posts - recently we've been planning our trip to Nashville so I've been trying to find an AirBNB to book! 
Finally at about 10:30 PM it's time for my favorite thing - getting ready for bed! I begin and end my days with a great rinse. Even after brushing I can use the extra clean feeling and knowing that it's working while I'm sleeping to ward off plaque and killing 99% of bad breath germs (some that are missed by just brushing) makes me feel like I'm being productive even in my sleep. Then I literally rinse & repeat the next day! 

What's a day in the life like for you? Any one thing you look forward to?

  5. I look forward to my evening walks. It's my quiet time, no music playing or talking on my cell phone. I also love waking up and making a pot of coffee. My morning usually starts with the coffee pot going and then I sit and read posts by my favorite bloggers.

  6. Yes, that old Donna Summer song is playing in my head as I read this "She Works Hard For The Money!" LOVE day in the life posts and yes, the time in the evening when you want to relax and unwind....gone in the blink of an eye!! Here's to Monday flying by!!

  10. You sound like me... I don't know where half of my day goes sometimes and before I know it its 10p and I'm like time for bed. I've been working on a day in the life post, but collecting the pictures has proved to be difficult, hope you have a great week!

    ReplyDelete
  11. I am so with you— bad breath makes me self conscience so fast! I swear by the Listerine breath strips and always have some in my bag!

    ReplyDelete
  12. I always think the night flies by once my hubby gets home - although it flies by during the day too! I always say we need more time :) That's so sweet Gary gets dinner ready for you guys! And yes, Listerine is a MUST!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Yay! I love day in the life posts! I guess now I know how you fit it all in :) Love that planner! So cute.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Day in the life posts are my favorite! I totally agree the evenings just fly by - I love how much you are able to pack into your day!

    ReplyDelete
  15. I love how creative you are with your make up mat over the sink to give you more space. Luckily I have a counter now, but I sure could have used one of those back in the day! I usually don't get home until 6:30 pm and I have to agree, 7:00 pm to bedtime just fly right on by like it is nothing!! I wish three hours of my work day went by that quickly. Hahaha. Have a great week, stay cool out there!

    ReplyDelete
  16. You are one busy lady! Loved seeing a day in your life. Have a great Monday!

  17. So exciting to be planning and hosting your first event! Crest has some little one time mouthwashes that made perfect stocking stuffers last year. I am so paranoid about bad breath too. My boss drinks V-8 every morning and I"m telling you...it's terrible to be stuck near her right after. Eek! Hope you have a great week.

    ReplyDelete
  18. That pocket-sized mouthwash looks perfect. I didn't know they made a bottle that small. Also, your salad with the shrimp looks amazing!! Have a great week!

    ReplyDelete
  19. I love these sorts of posts - it really makes you look at how you spend a day.

    My step daughter just bought a house - with 3 apartments in it - to start renting for AirBnB in Nashville :) That's a happening place. When are you going down there? If its a weekend we're down for a grand baby visit, I'd totally have to meet up with you at least for a coffee ;)

    ReplyDelete
  20. yeah! i love day in the life posts. you're so organized i love it :) and isn't it interesting to see everyone's routine? like a sneak behind the curtains :) and seriously good breath is one of the most important things in life, so it's good to take care of that all day long!

  21. You go girl, haha! You definitely keep busy! And yes, 7-10 pm is gone in a blink!

  22. First, can we talk about how pretty your hair looks in that first pic?! Love it! It's crazy how fast the days go by now that we're no longer in school right? And getting ready for bed is my favorite thing too haha! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

  23. Love these "day in the life" posts! You have quite the busy work day! I'm trying to learn to get blogging stuff done in the evenings after work, but usually I'm just so tired that I put it all off until the weekend.... But you've inspired me to keep trying!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I always love peeking into people's day! I actually love your makeup setup - I've never seen that little black thing to cover up the sink before! Those hours at night always fly by in our house too - why, why why!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I always love these "day in the life" posts! Yes, why is that 7pm-10pm fly by?? Hope you have a great start to the week!

  26. Your days sound so busy, but I love how you utilize every moment that you have available! The best dinners are those that are cooked by husbands in my opinion because they're made with love ;)

  36. What a great post and makes me want to do one like this myself, soon. I loved when you did this type of post last year too. Your work day is busy. I had no idea they had small/travel size listerine rinsers but I will get one for sure. Also girl that salad that Gary made looks awesome and I am hungry now.


    Happiest Monday to you and good luck with your big things coming up at work!

  37. I don't know what it is about that 7-10pm time frame but it definitely flies by! I'm the same, TV on, laptop out and half paying attention to the TV. Lol

  40. I love day in the life posts! I totally remember seeing bolocos when I was in Boston but I don't think I really knew what it was! I wish the evening hours could sloooow down sometimes, they really do go by way too fast.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I love having a peek into other's days...does that make me nosy? Haha! Either way...these posts are so fun to me. I am considering sharing a couple too, a summer edition (since I'm off of work) and a work edition. I'll have to get started on the summer one quick since I'll be going back to work soon. :(
    You really are a busy lady, Biana! My brother swears by this mouthwash, he works for a dentist, I can't use it because I have super sensitive teeth so I have to use something else.
    Hope you have a great day, Biana!

    ReplyDelete
  57. I totally agree 7-10 are the fastest hours of the day! You sure do stay busy. And I haven't had Bolloco in years, there isn't one in NC and I miss it. I are there constantly in college!

    ReplyDelete
  58. Girl I don't know how you even manage blogging!! Your day is so busy, and you're getting in exercise in regularly. I usually can only make it on the weekends for working out.

  63. Loved reading about your schedule, you are one BUSY, BUSY lady!! I love how you have a good balance in your life, exercise, work, Gary!! Food!!! I always wondered how you keep your figure because you eat fun things on the weekend (I know you walk A LOT and you work out), but I often wondered about your dinners during the week. No wonder you look great, salad!!! Loved reading about how you keep your mouth fresh too!! Great post!!! xoxo catchatwithcarenandcody

  64. I love reading about other people's days and routines...it's so interesting to me. I need to get up earlier and become more awake before driving to work...haha. I am going to attempt to read some blogs in the morning before work with a few cups of coffee-you've inspired me to try it out!

  70. Bad breath is definitely a no no when working with people! Love how you set up with your mat and that Gary gets breakfast going while you get ready! So sweet! My husband has to be in to work earlier than me so we never really have mornings together unless it's the weekend. Hope your week is going smoothly! Xo

  78. Do you work in event planning for weddings now? The last time we met at the Blog and Tweet Boston Event you were working for a law firm but it sounds like that changed? Either way, you sound like a busy woman! Salads are always a great quick dinner. I have been loving strawberry and goat cheese salads and have been making them all summer!
