I love being able to share my favorites from the month- from things I bought to blog posts I read. This month was about working on my project I’m going to announce soon (am I being annoying and setting up the excitement enough haha 😉 ) + being a homebody. After as much traveling as we did, I’ve been enjoying the homebody part.
FAVORITE BLOG POSTS
- Bailey Jean is hosting Blogtember where there are blog prompts + a linkup for the whole month. I’ll be joining her for a lot of those (including this post for day 3!).
- I love this post by Chelsea about being a place where everyone belongs. Our move to Georgia was kind of soul crushing to me socially the first few years. I struggled in ways I have never struggled making friends and I totally related to her post.
- At the same time, I loved this post by Joy about not having to be friends with everyone. This might be counter intuitive considering the last favorite I shared. However, a big part of my 20s has been learning that I wouldn’t click with everyone (and it was okay) and I shouldn’t overly invest in people who didn’t (or wouldn’t) invest back in an attempts to fulfill “everyone should like me” syndrome.
I discovered the Deep Focus station on Spotify when I started grad school two years ago. I love that the instrumentals always have a good rock beat, but help me relax too. Also, I am obsessed with ABC by Alexander Fairchild… the first time I heard it I was folding clothing in our room and it made me happy cry.
My complexion is starting to get back to normal post-diagnosis so I haven’t been wearing as much makeup here lately. However, when I do, I’ve got the energy again to really have fun with it again 🙂 . These are some of my pale girl favorites that I’ve been wearing for the last few years! I get the foundation in alabaster and often use a powder foundation from Mary Kay if my skin is looking particularly rosy or gray. I use the rose petal tone in the blush. I like both the foundation and blush a lot because they have more of a cream finish which helps adhere to my dryer skin!
