Happy Saturday everyone. I’m excited to take it easy this weekend. Hope you guys have fun plans, whether it’s out and about or inside and cozy (no judgment from me). I thought it’d be fun today to round up a few the things that I really love right now.
Headspace // I’ve had a number of people recommend the app Headspace to me over the past year or so. After a failed attempt at a meditation challenge with Maxie a few years ago, I thought I was a lost cause. I finally broke down and downloaded the app. And let’s just say, I bought the yearly membership within three days. It makes meditation totally doable– in a way I’ve never experienced. The guy’s voice alone is relaxing!
There are different packs of meditation based on what you need in a particular moment (including an “SOS” playlist). I’ve been working my way through the foundation levels right now and just hit a 20-day streak with over three hours of total mediation so far. I look forward to those ten or so minutes a day now!
Thin Mints // Ugh. I’m not sure if I would classify this as a love or a love/hate thing. My mom sent up a few boxes of Girl Scout cookies, and I’ve been unsuccessfully trying to ration them out. I popped the boxes in my freezer, and I swear, around 9 pm, they start calling my name. It’s a good thing they’re not available year-round, or I’d really be in trouble. Any other Thin Mint aficionados out there?
Leather iPhone Case // I must be taking more mirror selfies than normal because I’ve been getting a lot of questions about where my leather iPhone case is from. It’s a handpainted case from KJP! In the past, I’ve always had a plastic case, but I’m digging the leather lately. I was worried that it would get scuffed easily, but instead, it’s aged nicely and looks perfectly worn in. It also looks a little bit more professional than, say, a hot pink case while still having a ton of personality!
Podcasts // You guys left some incredible podcast recommendations the other week. I spent some time listening to a few and finally settled on one to really get hooked on. So for the past week, I’ve been making some progress on “Missing Maura Murray.” It started over a year ago, but they’re still making episodes. I honestly don’t even know what to think at this point… but can’t seem to turn it off either.
I also listened to the first episode of the S-Town podcast yesterday. My interest is already piqued. I’ve read online that it’s even better than Serial, too!
J. Crew for New Balance // Never did I imagine that I’d be so obsessed with workout clothes. I never thought I’d be so into working out enough to even get to the workout clothes part. It’s a little nuanced, but I definitely see the difference between what I like and don’t like for different classes. Of everything, I can’t seem to get enough of J. Crew’s collaboration with New Balance. I love the tops, but the pants are especially great for working out. And they’re super cute. Can’t go wrong. My collection keeps growing, and I’m not mad about it.
