Starting off my Weekend Update series for 2018! Attempted to do this last year and fell off the bandwagon…going to try my best to keep up with it this year. This series is inspired by one of my favorite bloggers, Krista at Covering the Bases. 🙂
Shopping: Absolutely nothing! I am sticking to my goal of only buying food/necessities (and obviously still paying my bills, haha). I am going to try my best not to buy any clothing or impulse purchases. Is it bad that I’m proud of myself for making it for only a week so far??
Reading: My friend Jessamyn (check out her blog here) recommended Bittersweet by Shauna Niequist and I’ve been loving it so far! Perfect read to start off the new year on a good note. I also want to read her most recent book, Present Over Perfect.
J.Crew velvet bow – I love how bows are making a comeback!
Been cravinggg iced vanilla chai tea lattes and use this to make @ home (even in negative temps I’m still loyal to my iced coffee)
Love the color of this sweater
I got these earrings for Christmas and have been loving them. They go with everything!
Going to make these for dinner this week..hopefully they’re just as good as P.F. Changs 😉
Once my no-buy January is over, going to buy these makeup brushes
Links I Love:
This article from Gizmodo…never thought about it that way but totally agree!
Interesting video that made me re-think the capabilities of my iPhone
Watching: I finally watched Love Actually for the first time and I know this might be an unpopular opinion…but I didn’t really like it. Maybe there was too much hype but I found myself losing interest 3/4 of the way through and contemplated turning it off entirely. I also just watched The Holiday which I absolutely LOVED (earned a spot in my Top 5 favorite movies) and while I know they’re pretty different, they’re still similar in terms of being christmas-y/rom-com/dramas so I couldn’t help but compare the two.
