Catching My Eye,  Personal

Catching My Eye | 7.12.19

Lately, I’ve been feeling like every week is the same. Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday drag by with me checking the hour every hour, and then Thursday and Friday are gone in the blink of an eye.

I’ve been really busy lately with moving, but things are slowly coming together. I got my bedspread last night, and despite finding two spiders crawling around in it (EW!), I absolutely love it. This weekend, I’m tackling more organization and decoration in my room and throughout the apartment. If you’ve got any tips, please send them my way!

But for now, let’s get into what’s been catching my eye…

1. This insight into Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s daily life
I found this 36-hour, day in the life article really interesting. I’m relatively aware of what’s going on in politics, but I wouldn’t say I’m very up-to-date on each individual player. Ocasio-Cortez is a game-changer for the House of Representatives. Whether you agree with her policies or not, she’s a brave woman asking everyone to step up with her in this new wave of politics.

2. This new skincare line at Target
I’ve mentioned before that I’ve been using Rodan + Fields products since about February, and I absolutely love them, but I wanted to try something a little different and more affordable this time around. And there comes Target to the rescue! Target just launched this new skincare line, Versed. It’s cruelty-free, clean, vegan, and under $30 for every product. I picked up this brightening serum and this under-eye cream. I’ll keep you updated on how I feel as I use them more.

3. These organization tips for a new house
I just moved into a new apartment, and I believe everything has a place. I’m loving the organization tips and products Carly shares in this post about her new house. I don’t have quite as much space or so many things, but any tips are good tips.

4. This article about the queen of beach reads
Truth be told, I’ve only read one Elin Hilderbrand book, and it was because my mom bought it for me. I didn’t hate it, but it’s not my typical genre. Despite that, I do find her story fascinating, and I think she’s a tremendous writer. She pushes out book after book and has quite the following. As an aspiring author, her career path is one to be envied.

5. This book written by Steve Jobs’ daughter
It’s round two of trying to read this book, and this time I am determined to actually read it. I got it out of the library a few weeks ago and didn’t have enough time to crack the spine, but this time I am already 50 pages in and I’m hooked. Small Fry is the autobiography of Lisa Brennan-Jobs, Steve Jobs’ first daughter. So far, I can already tell she had a troubled, yet loving, childhood, and Jobs was barely in the picture. I can’t wait to see what else I find out.
