I was inspired by one of my favorite bloggers, Sam from Life & Messy Hair, to do a roundup of some of my current faves. What I really appreciated about Sam’s post is the randomness of her post…my God, she even included her favorite coffee creamer in her roundup! That’s when I officially knew we could be besties. 😉
That being said, just for fun, I wanted to link/list/share a bunch of my current faves of as lately, from my dog, to Netflix, to books, to current events….you name it. I am going to try and do this as a monthly segment on my blog. Hopefully I don’t forget about it. I tend to get spacey at times with my blog scheduling. Hang tight!
1.) My Dog
Coat: Charlotte Russe (out of stock) // Boots: Hunter’s // Sunnies: Ray-Ban // Necklace: SUGARFIX // Sweater: Nordstrom // Beanie: Calvin Klein
Can I just take a moment and tell you how much I love my dog? I mean, I really, REALLY love my dog. I have a whole new appreciation for Shadow since I broke my ankle. It’s crazy how dogs just have this weird 6th sense. Since I came home from the hospital, he has been so gentle and snuggly. He definitely knows I’m hurt and can sense it. Every night, he lays by my side and sometimes when I wake up, his little chin is pressed against my cheek. I can FEEL the love! If any of you are considering getting a dog, golden retrievers are the BEST!!!
2.) The Office
What I’m currently binging on Netflix. After I finished Grey’s, I really needed a new show. I now see why everyone and their mother is obsessed with this show. It’s HILARIOUS. I’m on season 8 and I expect to finish the whole series sooner than later, lol.
3.) Perks of Being a Wallflower
I read Stephen Chbosky’s Perks of Being a Wallflower within one day on our honeymoon and seriously fell in love. The book chronicles 15-year old Charlie’s experience with his first year of high school and the drama that comes with it. The catch is that Charlie struggles with past childhood trauma and depression, and the entire book is written through a mental health lens. As a high school counselor, you can see why this book is right up my alley.
4.) Fashionable Baseball Hats
I’m a huge hat gal. Mainly bc I fail at washing my hair and love just throwing on a hat to hide the mess. I have been a fan of Buckle’s blinged out baseball caps for years now. Also, my hair is getting so long and impossible to manage, thus, sometimes throwing on a hat is my ONLY option * flips hair dramatically * .
5.) @TwentiesGirlStyle Instagram
I am seriously in love with Ashley’s cozy Instagram. In addition, she’s also a fellow educator, so she gets bonus points in my book!
6.) Urban Decay Vice Liquid Lipstick
I’m literally obsessed with anything Urban Decay, and I wear this shade to work all of the time!
7.) Wide Awake Keurig Cups
Have you ever tried Wide Awake Coffee? It’s so yummy and fresh! You guys will love it!
8.) The #MeToo Movement
I don’t like to get political on this blog, but I have to share that I have been loving the recent #MeToomovement that highlights zero tolerance for sexual assault. As a counselor, I am a huge advocate for using our collective voices to bring awareness to important human rights issues. I was happy to see that the 75th annual Golden Globes focused on this movement, and the recent leadership shifts in media/political scope that have focused on this issue. (Sidenote, I still can’t believe Matt Laurer got fired!) I am happy that women are gaining a voice and that this movement has prompted national recognition. (But here’s some food for thought- WHY is this a movement? Shouldn’t we already be respecting women and have zero tolerance for this crap? rolls eyes). Anyways, just my thoughts.
What are your current faves for the month of January? What are you binging on Netflix? Have you read any good books lately? Let’s chat!!
