    Top 5 Podcasts to Listen To

    Podcasts have been having their moment in the sun for a few years now, but I’m still just as obsessed with them as I was a few years ago. I love having noise around me at all times (Silence can be scary, okay?), so whether I’m doing my makeup or cleaning my bathroom, I like to have a podcast playing. I have different podcasts for different occasions — news is strictly for my morning routine, murder podcasts are on full blast when I’m working out, and brain food podcasts are for when I’m doing work that doesn’t require a lot of attention. I listen to a wide range of radio…

    Catching My Eye | 5.17.19

    Yesterday was really tough. I try to stay positive here on the blog, and I try to always see the silver lining in life, but yesterday was a really rough day. I don’t want to get political on here, but I feel like I have an obligation to say something. I don’t have the biggest following out here on the interwebs, but if I can help one person, that’s so important. So, I want to give everyone reading this message an assignment — check in on your female friends. The world is becoming a scarier and scarier place every day for women, and I think we all need to check…

    Summer TBR List

    During my break from blogging, I realized I was reading so much more. Part of that was because I was utilizing my library and it’s book hold option a bit more, but another contributing factor was that I didn’t have the limitation of my monthly TBRs — I could easily read whatever was sitting on my shelf without worrying about hitting a specific mark. Therefore, I’m going to switch to seasonal TBRs knowing full well that I may not read everything on my list, but I’ll have a little more wiggle room. Summer is one of my favorite seasons (I grew up in Florida — it’s always summer) because I love reading…

    I Took A Day Off…

    This weekend did not go as planned. And that’s okay. I took yesterday off. I didn’t do a single thing on my to-do list until 8:30 p.m. And, that’s okay. I have a huge problem with taking time off to do nothing. Even when I wasn’t blogging for two months, I will still working incredibly hard on personal projects and work. Doing nothing for me is such a foreign concept that I have a really hard time accepting that some days it’s exactly what I need. Both Friday and Saturday were very busy days for me. Saturday was an all-day affair with friends at Steeplechase, so I was really relying on having…

    Catching My Eye | 5.10.19

    What a week! I kept this week pretty low-key focusing on work and getting back into a routine. I had a quick meeting on Monday evening and got some exciting news, played in my last kickball game of the season on Wednesday and enjoyed pizza with friends, and went to a networking event last night. I’m really looking forward to this weekend because I’m going to Steeplechase with a bunch of friends. (Apparently it’s the Kentucky Derby of Nashville? I’m really only going because I’m in this phase of saying “yes” to every opportunity, but nevertheless, I am very excited.) As mentioned, I’m really trying to focus on developing a…

    True Crime TBR List

    One of my goals of 2019 is to read more true crime books since it’s an area of knowledge that I’m fascinated by. I listen to a lot of true crime podcasts, but I absorb information a lot more from reading or watching documentaries. I finished Helter Skelter a few weeks ago, and I feel like I’m a wealth of knowledge on Charles Manson. It reminded me of how much I love true crime, so I figured I would make a little true crime TBR list for the rest of the here. Let’s get started! 1. I’ll Be Gone in the Dark: One Woman’s Obsessive Search for the Golden State Killer…

    Spring 2019 Playlist

    I know Spring is technically almost over, but I still wanted to share the playlist I’ve curated over the last few months. You know the drill by now, but in case you don’t, I like to include new music for the season, music I’ve just discovered, and music I may have listened to during the last few months (musicals I’ve attended, concerts I went to, or particularly memorable music from a night out). Without further ado, here’s my spring 2019 playlist. Happy listening, Kimberly

    Catching My Eye | 5.3.19

    And she’s back! A full week of posts, and truthfully, it hasn’t been easy. After two months of not writing blog posts, throwing myself back into it has been more difficult than anticipated, but I know this is where I want to be, so here I am. This week flew by. I had a lot going on at work, which always makes the days go by quickly, and I stayed very busy personally. Last weekend was the Rock ‘n Roll Marathon in Nashville. It ran right past my house, so while I was dog sitting, I decided to cheer on some friends as they tackled the half marathon. Since I…

    February – April Reading Wrap Up

    Buckle up friends! We’ve got three months of reading to review, and I was on a roll in April. Most of the books I’ve read in 2019 have been total hits, but there have been some duds here and there. I’ve got a lot of books to talk about, so let’s get started! February Image from Amazon 1. Little White Lies by Jennifer Lynn Barnes Little White Lies features 18-year-old Sawyer who was raised by a single mother 40 minutes away from her posh grandparents, aunt, uncle, and cousin. Sawyer is perfectly content being her mother’s keeper until her grandmother shows up one day offering her $500,000 to participate in the…

    Where Have I Been?

    It’s been a hot minute since we’ve chatted, but I’m BACK! I didn’t mean to take a two month hiatus, and I’m a little sorry about it, but it was the time I needed to figure out everything going on in my life. First of all, I can’t believe it’s already May (in two days). 2019 has been such a rollercoaster for me in the best and worst ways possible. Let me give a little wrap of where I’ve been these last few months and what I’ve been doing with my time. Losing My Favorite Person Some of you know, and some of you don’t, but my family said goodbye…
