what I've been...

Welcome, 

I feel as though I've been stuck in somewhat of a rut ever since I started working full-time and adhering to a strict schedule. In an effort to spice up my life I've been trying new things; workout classes, movies, hanging out with new people. Here's a short lil' recap on my favorites from this month: 

 

what I've been reading

Byrdie.com for all things beauty! The authors are so effortlessly funny. I don't buy anything until the Byrdie authors approve it.. 

Corporate Queendom for all post-graduation thoughts n' feels. Mandu is an everyday inspiration to me, and there's no one better to take advice from. 

Food - What the Heck Should I Eat? by Mark Hyman. Nutritional facts give me a rush of sorts. 

Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman. I'm only 45 pages into this book but I have a feeling it'll be a good one. It has the Reese Witherspoon stamp of approval according to the tactful marketing done on the front cover. 

 
 

what I've collected

Large Diptyque Candle - this was the most extra purchase of my life, but it was on sale and the middle-aged woman inside of me NEEDED IT 

Vitruvi Diffuser - anything that promotes "zen" is a yes in my book 

Slip Silk Eye Mask - as an eye mask  connoisseur  I needed only the finest silk on my eyelids 

Good Genes Acid Treatment - #ad #jk #thisworks 

Laneige Lip Mask  - a great addition to any night routine! 

Amazon Fire Stick - not wealthy enough for an Apple TV ok.. 

 

what I've incorporated into my daily routine

A daily probiotic 

Gratitude journaling

Sunscreen 

Wearing heels to work 

Buying myself flowers on Monday mornings 

 

what I've been watching

To all the boys I've loved before - already seen it twice.. 

Mama Mia 2 - listening to dancing queen rn 

Letters to Juliet - an underrated CLASSIC 

Lady Bird - most days I pretend I'm still in high school 

Call me by your name - the most beautiful movie I have ever seen 

The Greatest Showman - all the feels accompanied with a killer soundtrack 

 
 

current tv binge

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel
