Seven Things:

IMG_0912

I’ve always loved internet round ups so I thought I’d start doing them at least once a month. I’ve made a few before, but this time I’m making a format and going to try to stick with it. So here are seven things from around the web!

  • Since I’ve started working again I suddenly need to wear less of my beloved denim and more dress pants. These slacks are going to be the only ones I buy from now on.
  • It’s a dream come true! Joanna Gaines is opening a line at Target. Excuse me as I go buy things for the apartment I have yet to move into.
  • If you’re a bookworm and/or a writer, this twitter feed has been making me laugh recently. It’s been a wonderful addition to my timeline, because I’ve recently done a lot of unfollowing to get rid of politics and bring in things I love.
  • I saw this seven year old being a fashion CEO on my Facebook timeline the other day and started laughing very loudly in my cubical. This is basically how I imagine the fashion world works.
  • This song off of Thomas Rhett’s new album is sublime. I’m obsessed with it.
  • My last blog post on mental health got featured. It’s the first time that’s ever happened, so I was beyond excited to see it. I’m really glad I added that category to my blog this year.
  • I love good satire news, I recently found the Christian version of the Onion.  I didn’t expect it to be so good.

Link Love: Posts to Start your Year

I’m rounding up some posts that I think are really good and important reads. These don’t just qualify as interesting or pop culture. I honestly think that these will really change your views on a few things- in a very, very good way!

  • This post is a longer one, and not really a post, more of a PDF file, but it’s called the Low Information Diet and it talks about how we are information overloading 24/7. It’s by Tim Ferriss and it’s brilliant.

  • This post by Born to Sweat is titled Your Job Doesn’t Have to Be Your Passion, and That’s OK. It’s something I think my generation needs to hear having been raised on the idea that we have to do what we are passionate about and if we don’t we are failing. Sometimes work is work, and that’s alright.

Five Blogs You Need to be Following:

I’ve been playing with the idea of doing a blog roundup for a while, mainly because some of my favorite blogs are ones I’ve found listed on other’s roundups. The only reason I’ve hesitated is because there are just so many good blogs out there and narrowing down my bookmarks folder to a just a handful seemed like a real task. But after going through them and pulling out my long list of favorites, I started narrowing it down by what would be more relevant to readers of this blog. These are the top five from that process. Check them out and make sure you have plenty of time to read them when you do!

Blog Posts we’re Digging:

I have a lot of blogs I go through on the regular. I know that probably everyone reading this does (and hopefully Anna Down South is one!) but I think we can agree, that there are times when the blog posts just aren’t vibing with us. So, I present you with three posts that I’ve come across this week that I love.

Hint: it’s a cocktail, a craft, and an organization post.

Nole Garey and her team at Oh So Beautiful Paper have a lot of great things going on- including paper products which are by far my fave. I came across this Bourbon Pear Vanilla Bean cocktail on their site and thought that I’d have to give it a try (and I’m not a big drinker, so when I say that it sounds good). Here is the link!

I’m sorry the blog content has been lacking a bit this past week or so, exam week crushed me this year and I’m just starting to bounce back in time for Christmas. So, it will pick up a little bit, I promise. I’ve got some bigger stuff in the works. Until then I leave you with my favorite photo subject along with these past posts to keep you inspired.
