PHEW! What a whirlwind lately!! If you’ve been following my posts on Insta or getting my notes in your inbox, you know things have been a little out of sorts for me in terms of my living situation and basically every situation haha! I was recently staycationing at my sweet friend Emily’s house because the AC was out at my house (what an ordeal), and OF COURSE Little Red (my Jeep) has been throwing fits which left me homeless, carless, and THE MOST grateful FOR ANGEL FRIENDS (and their angel dogs) WHO PUT ME UP and for UBER, making it possible to scoot around town for work/meetings without a worry. If you haven’t guessed it, I’m partnering with Uber again (yay!!), and this time I’m sharing one of my favorite new App features: Pick Up Messages.
I posted today on my Insta Stories with a screen recording of exactly how you use it, but basically you can text your driver immediately and give them pickup details like “I’m the one sobbing on the bench” or “I’m the one with the Spongebob suitcase”, and so on. I love this because one of the frustrations I’ve experienced in the past was being in a huge crowd of people all waiting for Ubers, hoping my driver would call to find out which one was me. This eliminates all of that confusion. LOVE IT. If you haven’t downloaded the app yet, get it here! If you HAVE, try pick up messages next time you ride!! Super easy.
Anyhoo, look how spoiled I was getting to stay with Emily (@emilyblincoe on Insta!). THIS was what I got to look at every day. She’s probably one of the most talented designers/photographers/stylists/plant mamas I’ve ever met. THANK YOU SISTOR FOR LETTING ME LIVE WITH YOU WHILE MY HOUSE WAS BEING RUDE!! #Uber #whereto #ad
