    And with that, January is basically done! We survived the first month of 2021, and maybe I’m just being obnoxiously positive, but I didn’t think it was all that bad. Right guys? The first ten days were a little hit-or-miss, but once we made it over the hump, I think we hit our stride. Here’s hoping the rest of 2021 is just as forgiving. My week, as most, was pretty quiet. I’m just keeping my nose down, getting work done, and reading books. Let’s get into what’s been catching my eye this week! one | how to brighten someone’s day (pandemic or not) Almost a year later, and living in…

    Things I Have For My Cat That Just Make Sense

    I’m bringing you a little bit of a different post today. I wanted to talk about all the things I have for Maggie, my cat, that make life just a little bit easier. If you don’t know, I have a cat. She’s about 2 years old, and I’ve had her for a little over a year. She’s the most amazing thing that’s ever happened to me, and I love her with my whole heart. For starters, my cat loves to play fetch, so even though I waste all my money on toys for her, her favorite toy is hair ties she steals from my bathroom counter. I also have two…

    10 Tips on How to Read More

I think reading is one of the most joyful experiences, and as long as you’re reading things you love, I am all for reading more! Here are some of my tips on how I read so many books in a year. Let’s get started! one | set intentional time It’s really hard to get things done if you don’t have time set aside to actually do it. I specifically set aside time in the morning because I never know what my nights are going to look like. If I can…

    Catching My Eye | 01.22.21

    We did it! This week was full of happy tears as we inaugurated President Biden and Vice President Harris. We have our first female Vice President. This is truly so amazing. This is especially exciting for me because VP Kamala Harris is half-Jamaican, and my parents are Jamaican. It’s a huge step forward in so many ways, and I am so excited to see what this new legislation brings. In more personal news, my boyfriend and I are celebrating our one-year anniversary this weekend. It’s inspiring to see how much we’ve grown independently and as a couple over this last year. I’m excited to unwind together this weekend, go on…

    An Update on Meal Kit Deliveries

    If you know anything about me, you know I don’t cook. Well…that’s changed in the last three months! I bit the bullet and invested in Blue Apron, a meal kit delivery service, back in November, and it changed my life. (This is not sponsored. I wish it was. I really do. But I mean everything I am saying in this post.) I started off with Blue Apron because all my research showed it was more affordable and the meals were more diverse, but I always knew I was going to try both. I’m here to breakdown how I feel about them. Let’s get started! General Feelings on Meal Kits Clearly,…

    Week of Outfits | 1.10.21 — 01.16.21

    This was another quiet week (aren’t they all in COVID). I had a few small girl’s nights with my quarenteam. I’m so bad at getting dressed in the winter — especially when I’m working from home — but I’ll keep trying. Let’s get started! Sunday, January 10 Today my boyfriend and I set quarterly benchmarks for our goals, set up a check-in system, and watched football. (I read while football was on in the same room, so that’s kind of the same thing, right?) Sweatshirt – Gift from my company, but it’s Comfort Colors Leggings Slip-Ons Monday, January 11 On Monday, I decided to get all dressed up with no…

    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…
