What I'm Loving | 7/22/2018


I've felt uninspired this week, and I'm not sure why. When I'd close my computer at the end of the day, I just felt like a zombie reaching for my phone to spend an hour looking at an even smaller screen...not fun! I was having issues focusing, even having trouble sitting down to read.

I still don't know what the cause was, but on Friday I knew something had to give. I grabbed my camera and Rusty and we went on a lovely mini-tour of the gardens nearby, and I felt  so much better afterwards. Sometimes all you need really is a change of scenery!

Here's what I'm loving lately: 

Reading :: The going has been slower on Prarie Fires. I'm still finding it interesting, but I'm at the point where I'm three quarters through and it's been on the same subject for a. while. I also haven't had a ton of motivation to read this week as I mentioned above, so it's not a good combo. I am still determined to finish it, though!

Listening :: Did you know there are podcasts to help you learn languages? I feel like such a nerd to be excited about this, but I took German in college and I'd love to resharpen my skills. I'm going to sample a few of them and find one that sticks.

Spare Time :: I feel like I've done a lot of research this week. I'm finding new skincare brands and new supplements (just trying to live my best life!), but there's SO much research that goes into that. I spent an hour looking at shampoo brands the other day 😳. It feels like a waste of time, but nothing is better than finding a product you love!

Etcetera ::  I've decided to rebrands this at "etcetera" for now because I don't want to pigeonhole myself! So I'm going to start sharing one random thing from the week that I've loved. It will probably end up being a lot of recipes, but for this week I wanted to share the blog A Cup of Jo. This blog is so huge and I don't know how I never knew about it until this week, but I binged so many of her posts because I just couldn't stop reading!
