This and That No. 45

January 26, 2018

Today I’m back with my regular Friday post. It’s definitely been a minute! I know it’s been mostly crickets on the blog this week, but you know, life. I have some pretty big life changes coming up and, well, let’s just say I don’t exactly handle change that well. I tend to freak out about things at first (that haven’t even happened yet), then realize that everything is actually going to be okay.

I had a pretty major meltdown/freak out/stress attack one night this week, and the next day I woke up and felt like everything was just…clear. Something just shifted in me and I started seeing things differently. I think I get so set on planning things and having a timeline of when things should happen (having a one track mind doesn’t help, either) that when things don’t go according to plan, I unravel. It’s obviously something I need to work on. I’m happy that this week I “saw the light” so to speak, and started looking at things in a different way. I started to see that plans not working out might not be all that bad. Anyways, sorry for rambling, but there’s just a lot going on in my head lately!

Here’s what I’ve been reading/loving/buying this week:

1 // Roasted Broccoli

Why have I never roasted broccoli before?!!? I made roasted broccoli this week and it is seriously a GAME CHANGER. Honestly, it’s amazing. The broccoli gets this crispy texture, and with a little garlic and lemon…it’s seriously to die for.

2 // Taking Risks

I really loved this Man Repeller article about taking risks. Risk has been something I’ve been thinking a lot about lately, and this article shares an interesting point– can you live a meaningful life without taking risks? It’s a great read!

3 // Oscar Nominations

The full list of Oscar nominations came out this week, and I need to get to the movies ASAP. I really want to see Shape of Water, Ladybird, and The Post. The only movie I’ve seen on the list so far is Dunkirk!

4 // Beaded Statement Earrings

I’ve been all about a good statement earring these days, and when I saw these navy beaded babies on sale, I swooped them up. I think they’ll be a perfect addition to my collection, and I can’t wait to wear them this spring.

5 // Justin Timberlake x Chris Stapleton

Okay this is probably my favorite thing that happened this week– I mean. Justin Timberlake and Chris Stapleton? SO MUCH YES. I’m obsessed with JT’s new song. It feels an older Justin song like “What Goes Around.” The music video is also pretty awesome too!

Have a great weekend, friends!
