Things I Like Vol. 39

January 31, 2018

Happy Wednesday! Can't believe it's already midweek and that tomorrow is February. This week has been going by quickly #yas. I had a crazy stressful week last week so I'm just thankful that things are moving at a slower pace around here. Let's get to it, shall we?

Be Mine

January 29, 2018

While Mark and I don't typically do much for Valentine's Day I still love it because pairing red and pink together is one of my favorite color combinations! I really wish I had a pink coat I could have thrown on to complete this look but pink sunglasses will just have to do. We won't be going out for Valentine's Day but I usually like to wear something festive to work, so this outfit will definitely be a contender! Do you dress up for Valentine's Day?

Things I Like Vol. 38

January 24, 2018

Oof. I'm running on fumes today. My volleyball games went way late last night but I still woke up before work to do BBG. Wednesdays are turning out to be tough days for me because this keeps happening. Almost makes me want to start drinking coffee...almost ;) Let's get to it, shall we?

Movie and TV Shows I've Loved

January 22, 2018

By now you’ve probably realized that I’m very into movies and TV shows. After a long day of waking up early, going to work, walking the dog, making dinner, etc. all I want to do is relax and watch something to unwind. Thank god Netflix came around and made it more acceptable to just sit around watching TV and movies all day, right? ;) One of my favorite questions to ask people is what they’ve been watching lately so I can get recommendations and also because I love sharing recommendations. We recently signed up for Movie Pass, which I talked about on Instagram. It’s pretty much the best and has allowed us to see tons of movies. You can see one movie a day in theaters for $9.99 a month. It’s not a perfect system but we’ve been loving it and taking full advantage. Here are some movies and shows we’ve been devouring.

My Favorite Things We Registered For

January 19, 2018

Back today with some more wedding content - my favorite! I wanted to share the real MVPs among the things we registered for because I really struggled with the whole process. There was too much choice, I didn't even know where to start so hopefully I can shed some light on what we've loved in case any of you are registering. Obviously I love everything we got but there are a few items that have been particularly well loved in the few months since the wedding. We live in an apartment so we had to be really picky when picking items so that we didn't overwhelm our small space. Another struggle for us was that we obviously don't want to live in this small apartment forever so it was difficult to pick out nice things we could have for years when we don't know what spaces they'll be occupying. I stuck with all neutrals so that our pieces could work in any future home we have. Some of the things we got don't really go with our current apartment but will look amazing in my dream kitchen ;)

Things I Like Vol. 37

January 17, 2018

What a life this little pup leads, amirite? I wish I could stay snuggled in bed all day every day. At least it's a short week though! Let's get through it together with some fun links. 

Casual Layered Outfit

January 15, 2018

Long weekends are the best, no? I'm headed up to San Francisco today to see a friend and that will be the most activity I've had all weekend lol. Well we went to see The Post on Friday (so good!) so that was an activity. The rest of the weekend was perfectly, luxuriously slow. We started and finished The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, lounged, slept in, ran some errands and walked the dog. Ah, it was glorious. So sad that it's the last long weekend until Memorial Day though. Ugh. Anyway, let's talk about this outfit. This is about as warm as I ever need to dress here in California so I try to make it interesting with several light layers. The boots and the purse are new and I'm pretty excited to have both of them as additions to my closet. I love that they're classic but with fun little details to make them special.

Life Lately

January 12, 2018

We have so much to catch up on! I don't think I've done a life lately post since before the wedding. How have you been? I hope you all had amazing holidays and are crushing your resolutions if you made any. Hard to believe we're already done with week two of 2018. I'm feeling extra sad about the holidays being over this year. Our apartment just looks downright sad these days without all of the festive decorations. We're not really sure if we're staying in our apartment or not though so I haven't wanted to put any work into decorating it. Let's catch up more below the jump!

Things I Like Vol. 36

January 10, 2018

Welcome back to the first Things I Like post of 2018! I haven't really caught up with you guys yet this year but I have a Life Lately post in the works for Friday. Nothing major, but I'll just be sharing how our holidays were and what we're up to these days. So without further ado let's get to the things!

My Favorite Podcasts

January 8, 2018

I could not remember what day of the week it was for pretty much all last week so I ended up never getting a post up! #oops. Happy 2018! Today I wanted to talk to you about something that I've recently gotten into: podcasts! Like everyone else in America I was introduced to podcasts by Serial in 2015. I pretty much listened to Serial and then forgot about podcasts until last year. Now I have found a handful that I always look forward to each week. I typically listen to podcasts on the commute to and from work or when I'm walking the dog. They're such a fun way to pass time and stay informed and entertained. Read on to see my faves!
