Anything good that you’ve been doing/watching/eating/etc-ing lately?
Three random things for today. I wanted to share these funny little commentaries. Probably too short for a blog post, but they’re too long for Twitter… so I’m lumping them altogether for one post! It’s actually one of the weird things about how blogging has changed over the years. There are so many platforms to share everything; I mostly focus on my blog, Twitter, Instagram, and Tumblr. Even though there are more ways to share than ever before, I feel like the real conversations are dwindling. I personally only like to read blogs when I have a sense of who the blogger is. If the only thing I know is what she wears, it’s just not that appealing. Of course, I love to share my own outfits, but I do hope that you feel like you get to know the “me” behind it all, too!
drinking a lot of English Breakfast Tea. I love a good cup of coffee. I used to hate it and I would reprimand my mother for her bad Starbucks addiction when I was in high school. Then, naturally, I slowly got hooked in college. I would do half chai tea and half coffee during long nights in the library. Then it was less chai tea and more coffee. Then coffee with lots of milk and sugar. Then a splash of milk. And now I pretty much prefer my coffee dark roasted and black.
With my new Nespresso maker, I make a cup of coffee while I’m getting ready in the morning. But I generally have a meeting in the morning at a coffee shop or restaurant and instead of getting more coffee (bad for the nerves!), I’ve been getting English breakfast tea. It’s the best thing to sip on and I love the way it tastes. It has some caffeine, but not nearly as much as a cup of coffee. I’ll even make the tea at home and just sip it to stay warm when it’s chilly outside. Would love to know if you like drinking coffee, tea, or both!
watching The Good Wife. Where has this been my whole life? It’s not a new show, but I only recently have been hearing the buzz about it. I started watching a few episodes one Saturday night and I immediately got hooked on it. It’s kind of like Grey’s Anatomy, but for lawyers. Like an updated, totally not-cheesy Ally McBeal. I particularly love the show because I think it’s an interesting portrayal of a working mom. I like Alicia’s character a lot. If you’re like me and like to binge-watch shows, this should be next on your list.
listening to too much of Taylor Swift’s 1989. It’s almost constantly on loop on my iTunes. Every song is just catchy. I think I’ve been listening to it too much though because I’ve been having dreams where I meet Taylor Swift, go to Taylor Swift concerts, etc. The other night, I had a dream where I bumped into Taylor in an elevator and took a selfie with her. Creepy, I know. I think this is all part of her marketing team’s strategy. Infiltrate the music industry, infiltrate our minds!!!
