Hey all! With the changing seasons, comes new products. Also, I'm always open to trying something new, regardless what time of the year it is. I thought I would share with you a few of my "go-to's" at the moment. Amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo | $25 for 5.3 oz or $10 for 1 oz… Continue reading New Beauty Arsenal
Good morning all. What a week it has been. I took a mental health day earlier in the week due to my stress levels hitting fever pitch. All of the stress I was feeling was essentially self-imposed, but it was not any less real or painful to me. It's a pattern I'm familiar with. When… Continue reading Stress Management & Self Compassion
Hello, it's been a week or so since my last post. Haven't been particularly inspired by anything; sometimes you just need to live to be inspired. Friday night became quite the extravaganza I didn't expect and normally wouldn't like as I was more or less a sleeping-and-eating machine the next day and my plans to… Continue reading On February, Your Twenties, and Joan Didion
Instead of coming home after work, scrolling uselessly through social media or watching endless amount of Netflix, I've decided to be more intentional with my spare time. I'm always trying to find ways to continue staying mentally engaged. With that said, my new goal is to read at least one book a week. So far,… Continue reading A Book A Week
One of the "draggiest" parts about this time of the year in areas like the Midwest is the dry air, outside, as well as inside due to rogue apartment radiators that whistle like a tea kettle all night, every night! I used to have a humidifier that I would put a few drops of essential… Continue reading Weleda Skin Food
I loved being a student at Indiana University. Yes, I had too much fun there, but what I mostly think about when I look back on my college years was the sincere joy that I had being a student. While IU is known for their esteemed Kelly School of Business, I had a fantastic education… Continue reading Continuing Education or Personal Debt?
My fandom with Fleetwood Mac began several years ago now, and while I'm not quite as obsessed as I was upon my discovery of their music, they'll always be one of my favorite bands in one of my favorite genres of music. One might argue their true heyday was in the late 1970s to early… Continue reading The Landslide’s Bringing Them Down
Sometimes, it's easier to say what things aren't. If and when I have time to look at other blogs, I notice a lot of Millennial white women, a category to which I belong, doing the same thing over and over. In particular, I see a lot of Instagrammable photos, mainly of these women (that are… Continue reading What is Blogging to Me?
It's been a really odd week, to say the least. The dangerous weather in Chicago on Wednesday and Thursday left a lot of people cooped up in their homes for safety. On Wednesday, I did not leave my apartment one time, even though it looked beautiful outside with bright, clear blue skies and an appearance… Continue reading Winter Blues
Hi everyone. Sorry for the delay in postings this week. Work has been insanely busy and I just have been harder pressed for time. That said, I had some ideas a-brewin` and I decided since they're rather miscellaneous or komono (thanks Marie Kondo), I would do another round of Smörgåsbord! Alright Volume V; let's do… Continue reading Smörgåsbord V
