Catching My Eye | 10.30.20

I’m not exaggerating when I say this week has been a DOOZY. I won’t get into all the details, but I can say that I am very ready for this weekend. I will be spending this morning volunteering at a local, outdoor fundraiser for a young-professional group I am a part of, and then, I have the rest of the day off! Hopefully, I’ll be able to get some last-minute reading done to finish another book or two for this month.

Let’s get into what’s been catching my eye this week!


one | these gifts for book-lovers
It doesn’t feel like it, but my birthday is just around the corner. My mom asked me recently what I want this year, and I didn’t have any answers. Then, this gift-guide for book-lovers popped up! I love the line markers, the bookplate stamp, the ideal bookshelf print, and of course, the candles.

two | this compilation of ‘i voted’ stickers
The best thing about voting is having your voice be heard and participating in your civic duty, but the second best thing is getting a sticker. I got the plain sticker this year, but I love that New York magazine collaborated with artists to create unique designs this year to be incorporated in the publication and available for free at bookstores and libraries across the US for people to pick up an enjoy.

three | these tips on styling a plaid blazer
I’ve wanted a plaid blazer for longer than I can remember, so I am always on the hunt. I haven’t found one I’ve wanted to commit to yet, but this Everygirl post is really tempting me.

four | these ideas for how to be more sustainable at home
I try to be sustainable. I’m not the best at it, but I’m always looking to improve. I love these quick, easy to implement ideas from Apartment Therapy on how to make quick swaps that are better for the Earth.

five | this story about a family of sisters torn apart by their secrets
I heard Anissa Gray speak last year at The Southern Festival of Books, and I knew I had to read The Care and Feeding of Ravenously Hungry Girls. Follow the Butler family as they face trials and tribulations that make them stronger than ever. Until, one day, Althea, pseudo-matriarch, and her husband are arrested. The other sisters, Viola and Lillian, must band together to help raise Althea’s twin, teen daughters, but will their love be enough? It’s said to be a gripping story about the importance of family and identity.

Happy adventuring,
