    Catching My Eye | 01.15.21

    TGIF! I don’t know about you, but this week felt like it was a million years long. I had an overwhelmingly productive beginning to my week, and all of a sudden, I crashed yesterday. I couldn’t focus on any of my tasks, and all I wanted to do was take a nap. Believe it or not, I think all the events of the previous week had finally hit me. Sometimes I can take longer to process upsetting incidents (this has happened before with loved ones’ deaths, family drama, and news items). I’ll be completely fine when it’s happening, and then a week, maybe weeks, later, I’m a mess. It’s definitely…

    Week of Outfits | 1.03.21 — 01.09.21

    Fair warning, I didn’t change out of my leggings or put shoes on all week. It was a very quiet week of working from home and running one small errand each evening. Let’s get started! Sunday, January 3 My boyfriend and I spent the day goal setting, both as a couple and individually. It was such a great exercise, and I recommend it to anyone with a serious partner in their life. Henley Leggings Monday, January 4 I spent the day working from home — it was a super busy day, so I didn’t really leave my computer all day. Headband Glasses Flannel Leggings Tuesday, January 5 Just another day…

    How’s everyone doing? There’s no denying that this was a tough week. I am once again saddened to my core about the current events in this nation. I can’t put into words what I am feeling, though words should be the one thing I have. I want to give everyone a giant group hug right now. I hope everyone can take a moment this weekend to hug their loved ones a little tighter and decompress from this sad event. Let’s get into what’s been catching my eye this week… one | a breakdown of what happened at the capitol on Wednesday… If you somehow missed the news, here’s what happened…

    Week of Outfits | 12.27.20 — 01.02.21

    I’m starting a new series on the blog to chronicle every single outfit of 2021. I noticed myself getting very lazy with my wardrobe in the last few months, and I want to cultivate my own style in 2021. To hold myself accountable, I’m posting a round-up of all my outfits the previous week each Sunday. I promise to get better at the selfie-taking as this goes on! Let’s get started! Sunday, December 27 I spent the day running errands and hanging around the apartment. I had spotty service and no wi-fi for most of the day as an aftermath of the Christmas bombing in Nashville, so I got a…

    Happy 2021! How good does that feel to say? I had a very low-key New Year’s Eve cuddled up on the couch at home with my boyfriend watching Star Wars, but I made the amazing charcuterie/snack-plate below that we munched on all night long. I’m looking forward to 2021. I know it’s not going to be all that different from 2020 if we are being honest in terms of the pandemic, but it still feels like an amazing fresh start. I hope everyone had a safe and wonderful holiday and is looking forward to a new year! Let’s get into what’s been catching my eye this week! one | tips…

    Happy Friday! I’m taking next week off of blogging to enjoy time at home for the first time in over a year. Earlier this week, I was really stressing out about flying — it’s not a thing I like on a good day much less in the middle of a pandemic — and it made me think about the fact that everyone is just doing their best right now. There is so much shame online right now if you do anything other than stay at home, and I think we as a society need to be a little less judgemental. For the most part, we are all doing our best, so let’s…

    Underrated Last Minute Gift Ideas

    Was it just me or was shopping for Christmas presents was harder than usual this year? I couldn’t think of any good, creative ideas. I’ve almost got everyone covered on my list at this point, but if you’ve got some last-minute shopping to do, check out my ideas. Let’s get started! one | socks This is only a good idea for those 18+ because kids will feel gypped, but I haven’t met a single adult who doesn’t love a good pair of socks for the holidays. two | a playlist I know we aren’t burning CDs anymore for our friends and family, but I still think a well-curated playlist for…

    Presents for Everyone On Your List

    Did anyone else start their Christmas shopping later than normal, or was that just me? I ended up buying a little too many presents for myself, I always do that around this time of year, so I decided to build a list off of what I bought myself, as well as some items I managed to hold myself back from buying, but highly considered getting. Let’s get started! one | for the organizer in your life… This planner from Golden Coil. My favorite thing about this planner, is that you can build it to be anything you want it to be. Personally, I love the idea of bullet journaling (and…

    Catching My Eye | 12.4.20

    Happy first week of December! I can’t believe we have almost made it through 2020. The year with seven Marchs is finally, hopefully coming to an end. I’m not going to lie, this week was a weirdly tough one. I had a nagging health issue pop up again, and I had to get that taken care of which always messes up my week, but I am so lucky to have friends that take care of me and a boyfriend who is always willing to bring me dinner and watch crappy TV with me. I’m going into this weekend excited! My boyfriend wasn’t here for my birthday, so he has a…
