Catching My Eye | 11.6.20

This week was a pretty quiet week. Aside from stressing out about the election every ten minutes, I didn’t have too much on my plate. I’m going out of town with my boyfriend for the weekend to a cabin in east Tennessee, and I am so excited to get away from everything for just a little bit. I rarely take a weekend off, so it will be nice to have some time just to the two of us.

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

Catching My Eye 11.06.20

one | this article talking about making a good-day and a bad-day plan
2020 has tested us all in unexpected ways. I think we’ve all done a really good job of adapting at a moment’s notice to whatever is thrown our way, but I love this idea from Self to have a good-day and a bad-day plan on hand for when you “just can’t.”

two | this explainer on how to organize a cheese board
If you’re like most millennials, you have found comfort in a charcuterie board at some point during 2020. I’m technically not supposed to eat cheese (self-diagnosed lactose-intolerant gal over here), but I still can’t seem to quit it. I love these tips on how to make the most out of your cheese, meat, and cracker combos.

three | this floral notebook pack
Going to Target is self-care for me. Usually, if I’ve had a particularly rough week, I’ll pick up something like a new pair of earrings or a nail polish, but this time I picked up a pack of adorable notebooks from Cupcakes and Cashmere’s collaboration with Blue Sky. They are the perfect size for to-do lists or jotting down ideas, and I absolutely love them already.

four | this meal-kit delivery service
I did it. I bit the bullet and signed up for Blue Apron. I struggle when it comes to cooking, and I really want to try my hand at some new recipes. I figured something like Blue Apron, where they lay everything out for you, would be the perfect choice. Ultimately, I chose Blue Apron over Hello Fresh because it’s marginally cheaper and was reported to have tastier recipes, but I might try Hello Fresh out in the new year!

five | this book about a love story in 1940s New York
Follow Vivian as she reminisces about her early days in New York City. Vivian was shipped off to live with her aunt, Aunt Peg, who runs a theatre in New York after failing out of college. It’s all fun and showgirls until Vivian makes a mistake that results in a scandal that forever changes her life. I’m about a quarter of the way through the book and absolutely loving it so far.

Happy adventuring,
