March Favorites

Sunday, April 1, 2018
When this goes live, I'll be touching down in London for the start of my two week vacation! I'm unbelievably excited to go back to the city I love so much and share it with my boyfriend this time. The anticipation has made it so hard to stay in the moment lately, but I've tried my hardest to stay present and appreciate some favorites.

My Bullet Journal

Lately I've been mentioning how crazy this month has been about every other minute. The only reason I lived to tell the tale is due to my trusty Bullet Journal. I've really settled into a system that works well for me and isn't too complicated or labor intensive. I can quickly get set up for the week and I tote it around with me everywhere I go. I've had so many random things pop into my head in the middle of the workday or right before bed and my Bullet Journal has been the perfect place to record those fleeting thoughts and make sure I actually do something about it. Packing lists, schedules for cleaning and house renovations, info pages for things I've researched -- it's all packed in my little life-saver notebook. If you haven't already hopped on the Bullet Journal bandwagon, I highly encourage you to check it out.

Topshop MOTO Raw Hem Straight Leg Jeans

These puppies are one of my first spring wardrobe acquisitions and I haven't been able to wait for actual spring weather to break them out. I've worn this jeans probably 20 days out of the 31 in March. I love the raw hem, which hits about an inch and half above my ankle (I'm 5'6"), the high waist and the mid blue wash. They fit true to size and they're surprisingly comfortable considering how high the waist is. I can already tell they're going to be my go-to jean from here on out and I might even be picking  them up some other washes.

The Library

I love books. I always have. I have distinct memories of wandering my elementary schools' libraries, reading certain series over and over, and staying up all night to read the newly released Harry Potter book until my mom would bring me breakfast in the morning. I definitely have a healthy selection of books in my house, but every time I go to the library to check out some new ones I'm amazed by the simple fact that I can read so many different books for free. The library even lets you research your genealogy on, use the internet and read current newspapers and magazines, all for absolutely no money. Hardly anything is free anymore! This month alone we've checked out novels, cookbooks and reference books, in physical form and as ebooks. For my upcoming trip I plan on checking out a few more ebooks to cut down on my luggage weight. I really hope you guys keep in mind all that's available to you and support the libraries in your area -- they need all the help they can get lately!

Fit & Fearless Podcast

After revamping my fitness routine in February I started looking for more motivation to keep me going this month. Tally, Zanna and Vic from #GirlGains on Instagram have put together a really personal, informative and supportive podcast over on BBC5 live. They've covered all kinds of topics from weightlifting, to nutrition and eating disorders, to prenatal fitness and yoga. I've blazed through their episodes, which are all about 30 minutes long and I'm already ready for season two!

I hope you all are having a wonderful start to April and I look forward to sharing my trip with you!
