Catching My Eye,  Personal

Catching My Eye | 6.7.19

What a week! I’ve got two massive events I’m planning coming up next week, so I’m basically a chicken with its head cut off until next Sunday when I can finally breathe again. But honestly, I kind of love it. Maybe I’ve found a new passion? Who knows.

Even though this week has been crazy, it’s also been exciting. I love a new month, and June is such an exhilarating month since it kicks off the summer and all the fun things that come with the season. I shared my summer bucket list with you all this week, but I’m truly looking forward to the possibilities that come with summer — the adventures, the late nights, and the memories to be made.

Let’s jump into what’s been catching my eye this week…

1. This list of products that can help you get a better night’s sleep
This week has been a weird one for me…I haven’t been going to bed at my usual time (9 p.m. because I’m a grandma), and even though I’m engaging in all my routines, I’m simply not ready to end the day like I usually am. I really like this list of things to help you sleep, specifically the weighted blanket, Melatonin gummies, and lavender sleep balm. I’ll have to try these out soon, though I’m hoping this is just a phase since life is so hectic right now.

2. This summer capsule wardrobe
I’ve always wanted to create a capsule wardrobe, and I’ve probably mentioned it on here a few times, but I’ve never actually done it. But, last weekend gave me some hope that this is something I might be able to work towards. It sounds weird, but bear with me. I went shopping. I know – counterproductive if I’m trying to cull my wardrobe down, but I actually got staple pieces that I’ve been looking for forever, and they all were neutral/in the same color palette which made me feel like I was finally nailing my perfect fashion sense. I don’t know if any of that made sense, but Jess Ann Kirby is helping me channel all the capsule wardrobe vibes for this summer.

3. These recommendations on how to keep the creative juices flowing
I tend to struggle with my “identity” as a creative. I’m not saying this to get praise or an ego-boost, but I truly do not see myself as a creative person. I love to watch other creative people, read other creative people’s work, but to be creative myself? It’s something I find really challenging. That’s why I found this article from Doré to be so great; “If you want to be an artist, stop right there. You are an artist.”

4. This guide to meal-prepping on a budget
I love a good meal prep. It’s truly the only thing that keeps me eating like an adult 95 percent of the time. Without it, I swear I would just eat peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, pasta, and chocolate. And, I also love a good budget. I’ve been following The Financial Diet for a while, but this article perfectly combines my two favorite things about adulting, so I had to give it a share.

5. This book about a rock ‘n’ roll band
Much like everybody else in the reading world, I am loving Daisy Jones & the SixI love that it’s set up as an oral history because I think it makes it feel more real to the reader. It also further emphasizes the point that everybody has their own truth, which is a point the “interviewer” makes at the beginning of the book. If you don’t know, this is a story loosely based off of Fleetwood Mac. It features a rock and roll band that partners with a pop-punk singer to make the greatest band in history. Daisy joins The Six on their second album, shakes everything up, and leaves everyone wanting more. I’ve got about 100 pages left, and I can’t wait to see how this ends.
