How’s your week going so far??? The weather here has been so pleasant lately but eerily windy! Perfect conditions for putting up some Halloween decorations around the apartment. On Sunday, it finally felt cool enough to pack up a blanket and a picnic and spend the afternoon at the park across the street from us. The weather wasn’t the only thing on point at the park. The people watching was amazing! All the shelters were occupied with large birthday parties; complete with decorations, music, and bounce houses. Miami-folk take their celebrations seriously! Anywho, enjoy the rest of your week and here are a few things worth reading…

Watching “Friends” re-runs will make you feel like a dinosaur.

Former Stanford dean on how to raise an adult.

Free associate from the word “gluten” these days and you’ll probably come up with poison.”

In case you’re after a racy read.

Creative costume ideas for the upcoming holiday.

Serial fans take note–we need to talk about Don!

Further proof that the easiest way to save money on food is to learn how to cook…

…and when you do, who knows, maybe you can turn your skills into a side hustle!

Wouldn’t this necklace look so charming paired with a dark turtleneck and flares?

The scientific way to cut a cake.

Any hand-lettering pros out there? This DIY is for you.

The Me-Time Tag

The Me-Time Tag

1. What do you watch or read during me-time?

Like pretty much everyone in my generation, I love a good binge watch. When it comes to TV shows, I run the full gamut from critically acclaimed drama to trashy reality. Currently I’m marathoning my way through House of Cards (obvi) and season nine of Keeping up with the Kardashians. See what I mean? Highs and lows. I’m also watching How to Get Away with Murder in real time. As for reading, my nose is usually tucked in a book but  I also keep up with a pretty lengthy list of blogs over on Bloglovin’ and LOVE getting lost in a good longform article.

2. What do you wear during me-time?

My comfies! Usually some form of lounge-wear (read: PJ pants) or athletic-wear (read: running shorts) and t-shirts/hoodies. The former dancer in me has never let go of legwarmers. Frigid weather has me turning to my “sherpa-lined” bootie slippers more often than not. I wish I could have a dresser full of all this me-time apparel.

3. What are your me-time beauty products?

Lately I’ve been loving Yes To products. Specifically Yes to Grapefruit Correct & Repair Daily Facial Scrub and Yes to Tomatoes Skin Clearing Facial Mask.

4. Current favorite nail polish?

I’ll always love any navy blue nail polish but ask me again in the summer and my tastes may brighten.

5. What do you eat/drink during me-time?

Cheap red wine from Trader Joe’s, fruit, greek yogurt (the Greek Gods Original Honey kind is insane!!!).

6. Current favorite candle?

I’m a huge fan of Bath and Body Works Leaves and Eucalyptus Mint.

7. Do you ever have outdoorsy me-time?

Absolutely! I adore really long walks and usually listen to podcasts as I go. I have a hard time switching off my overly expressive face so I often wonder if I look a little looney tunes giggling and crying along to my dude Ira Glass’ voice…but whaddaya gonna do?

8. Would you ever go see a movie alone?

I would and I have. Sometimes sitting down to watch a movie by yourself AT HOME can be a little guilt inducing–at least for me. Like, should I be doing something more productive? I guess I could check my e-mail while this is on? That litter box isn’t gonna scoop itself! Going to the theater is a great way to just let everything else on your plate go and enjoy getting lost for a little bit. Pro-tip: Unwrap that Jimmy John’s sammy BEFORE the movie starts.

9. Favorite online store? 

Other than Amazon, I’m not sure I really HAVE a favorite online store. I prefer to online window shop over on Pinterest. ; )

10. What else do you do during me-time?

Snuggle with Wink. Loom knit. Blog. Watch YouTube videos. Do yoga.

Over to you! Pick a question and answer below! I’d love to know how you’re spending your precious me-time.
