Saturday Favorites & Life Update

Good Morning Everyone!

It has most certainly been a while but needless to say January kicked my butt. I was sick four weeks in a row (with different things mind you…). In the midst of leaving my job to start another, then starting the new job and two hours in on my very first day being offered a better position at a different company who wanted me to start ASAP… All while having a new ceiling installed in my room and under-going a redesign. This just goes to show you that life doesn’t care what you have going on it just throws things your way and it all has a way of working itself out. Now, if you had talked to me a few weeks ago I probably wouldn’t have come back to you with such a positive outlook but whats past is past and lets just be thankful its over now lol…

I have thought about my blog a lot over the past month and how I am going to manage something that I really enjoy doing with this new obligation of a 9-5 office job. I think I am just going to eliminate the pressure and just go with it. A lot of my influencer friends have told me it gets much better when you stop worrying about follows and likes on instagram. I don’t want to sound like a robot promoting myself on that platform anyway. If you know me IRL I actually find social media to be draining but I think that has to do with the fact that its so hard not to compare yourself with everyone around you. The pressure to post a lot, comment and engage with friends etc, the analytics of it with the forsaken “A” word ………….(Algorithm). At this point, I just can’t wrap my head around everything so I hope it leads me back to peace and love for the business of blogging.

Now on to some lighter things.

My Saturday favorites.

I have been reading a lot lately and so far I have two books that I absolutely love. In January I started reading along with Reese Witherspoon’s book club: here. I have been following along via her instagram as well as the book club’s instagram and so far I am really liking it. People get really into it over on Goodreads. I am not, personally but they seem to have a great community over there if that is something you are interested in. January’s book, The Last Mrs. Parrish was such a great read. Such an interesting story line and it gets to a point where you genuinely can’t put it down.

Another thing I have been enjoying is listening to Audiobooks in the car ride to and from work. I found that it really takes away the anxiety and mindless thought process that occurs while driving and gets you to focus and I find, really brightens my mood. I am currently reading Promise Me, Dad: A Year of Hope, Hardship, and Purpose by Joe Biden. I came across this book via social media somewhere and its not something I would typically go for but I love it. I do love listening to nonfiction books but memoirs I have never explored before. I love getting a peak into the former VP’s life and his perspective on things. Its a beautiful novel that has brought tears to my eyes and I am not even finished with it yet. I use Audible when listening to audiobooks and I especially love that Joe Biden himself narrates the book. You genuinely feel as if you’re in a room speaking with him and listening to his stories.

What would this blog post be without my current fashion favorites! I know there is a lot of stuff on sale right now for President’s Day so here are some of the things catching my eye right now.

Thats all I have for now since I am just getting back to the swing of things. With the tragedies going on in our country currently, I wanted to take this opportunity to send my thoughts and prayers to those affected and hope that everyone stays safe!
