N O . 1 0 1 | for shabbos, i’m making #frenchonionsoup. i mean, that pretty much means i’ll be sitting on a chair by the stove as i impatiently wait for it to simmer (because #anemia), but i’m excited to do something “normal” after a full week of feeling like anything but myself. so to rest up for this rather big event, i’m going to take a nap. what better way to sleep than by moisturizing my skin with @jorgobe’s white tea balancing cream, lighting @getmaude’s incredible smelling candle, & delicately sliding @slipsilkpillowcase’s silk sleep mask over my eyes? i honestly can’t think of anything better this friday afternoon. p.s. don’t worry, i’ll be blowing the candle out before shutting my eyes. the smell is subtlety strong. p.p.s. if you’re feeling run-down for whatever reason, try squeezing in some one-on-one time with yourself today (& every day). your body will thank you. p.p.p.s. be kind to one another. it’s important. 📷: @thebrittedit

N O . 1 0 0 | one hundred posts. wow. never thought i’d reach this mini milestone! as many of you are aware, switching up my feed every so often (meaning, deleting all the photos off of my account & starting fresh) has been a thing i’ve done. i’m really loving how i’ve been able to creatively express myself through these squares. thank you to everyone who has engaged with me & has expressed a sense of calm that washes over you the second you check out my photos. that’s just incredible. 📷: @thebrittedit

N O . 9 9 | reminiscing over this simple, darling gift box i curated for @thegallery_collection. due to my current state of health, i’ve chosen to postpone the launch of my @newyorkandnarrative curated gift box line. don’t worry, it won’t be too long; just not as soon as i would’ve liked. 📷: @thebrittedit

N O . 9 6 | if there’s one thing i’ve learned over the past five & a half days, it’s knowing that true beauty comes from putting yourself first. that your everyday life can wait if your overall wellness is slipping through your fingers. i’ve been told i won’t regain my strength for another month (after losing over a liter of blood in just two days), & that i won’t know what’s for sure going on with me for another week. so i’m just here. breathing. thinking. daydreaming. realizing just how fortunate i was to have my health, whatever that may have been. & thanking g-d that my health isn’t worse than it is at the moment. 📷: @thebrittedit

N O . 9 5 | some r&r is in the cards for this heavily exhausted, newly-diagnosed anemic mama. i’m making it so. (if you need me, i’ll be watching #beetlejuice, eating frozen strawberries, & in between a doctor’s appointment, off & on lightheadedness, & nausea-induced moments, forcing myself to get some pampering time in.) self-care is so important in order to heal! 📷: @thebrittedit

N O . 9 4 | everything in my life has been put on hold since thursday night; packing to move, @newyorkandnarrative stuff, functioning without feeling weak or in pain or without nausea. i’ve appreciated everyone who has reached out to ask me how i’ve been doing. i’m sorry i can’t respond to you all. please look at my “wellness” category under my story highlights. for the most part, all of my health updates are there. i hope each & every one of you are safe & doing well. 📷: @unsplash, then edited by @thebrittedit

N O . 9 3 | the past forty-eight hours (& counting) have been hell. & that’s putting it mildly. i’m in so much pain & this is the weakest i’ve ever physically felt in my life. my current fears include: having anemia, another emergency room visit, & running out of pads. (that last one was a joke . . . sort of.) my amazing husband, @joes613, has been selflessly taking care of me since all of this started. we spent our anniversary & shabbos deep breathing, making continuous bathroom trips together, & eating iron-rich foods to help combat all the blood-loss. menstrual cycles are no joke, especially when you switch up your routine. to read more about what i’ve been experiencing, head on over to my story highlights; under “wellness.” thank you for all the messages of love. i wouldn’t wish this on anyone! (even if it’s a good reason that got me here.) i can’t wait for this to stop so i can get some real sleep & maybe even indulge in self-care a bit. g-d knows i need it. 📷: @thebrittedit

N O . 9 2 | wow, wow, wow. the last eleven hours have been so wild. please check out my instastories; i’m trying to save up the little energy i have to spend time with my husband for our anniversary today. prayers & good vibes are needed, wanted, appreciated, & considered amazing. xx, britt 📷: @unsplash, then edited by @thebrittedit

N O . 9 1 | #throwbackthursday vibing with this #midcenturymodern gift box i curated for my beautiful friend, @mrsbleznick & her husband as a wedding present. i love sleek, chic home decor; especially when given as a gift! after all, gifting is a form of storytelling. & at @newyorkandnarrative, helping to tell your story is at the forefront of my gift boxes & stationery. 📷: @thebrittedit

N O . 9 0 | i’ve always had a thing for apartment living. small, open spaces & the concept of “less is more” is my jam! only downfall? paying rent to someone else, instead of investing in my own home. (can’t have it all, right?) in any case, what’s your ideal place of residency? 📷: @unsplash, then edited by @thebrittedit
