Books I Want to Read by Black Female Authors


I drafted my blog post that went up this morning. Not bringing attention to the racism pandemic happening in our country (and the world, for that matter) was highly insensitive. Although I have posted on my Instagram story that I am choosing to post "regular" content, I want it to be very clear that in doing so, I am not lacking empathy for the situation or disregarding it at all. Instead, I am choosing to support offline, by living a positive life and spreading love to those around me, on and off of social media.

This Week's Top 10


1. The other day I listened to this podcast episode about crazy wedding horror stories... omg. It was so entertaining. I was walking my dog while listening to it and literally laughing walking down the street. 

2. On the blog this week (ICYMI) I shared my homemade frosémy favorite activities for my brain, and another small space decor post!

3. PSA! So many pairs of my fave Veja sneaks are on sale and available in multiple sizes and styles here!!!

My Favorite Activities for my Brain


Now that it's officially summer in quarantine, I've been trying to think of ways to stimulate my brain and incorporate activities into my daily routine that aren't just online shopping or Instagram scrolling. I'm not the kind of person who can binge Netflix all day, but I am pretty addicted to my phone. So, I like to do a few things every day that are actually good for my brain. Today I am going to share some of my favorite activities that are a little bit more on this productive side!

Small Space Decor: More Apartment Ideas


New quarantine activity alert! I've become addicted to watching YouTube videos of people apartment hunting in Manhattan and "shopping around" on Street Easy for apartments. It's not only entertaining, but it helps me get an idea of what I'm getting myself into when I move. I haven't heard any updates on my job (yet), so I am still planning on signing a lease in NYC around the first of September... of course, that could change at any moment, but that's the plan for now. Because this is my first job and apartment, I know I won't be living anywhere fancy, but I'm getting so excited about the impending move!

Homemade Frosé



This weekend turned out to be gorgeous. The forecast initially said it was going to rain nonstop, but to our surprise, it was sunny and in the 70s all weekend long! Yesterday my mom and I went for a long afternoon walk in the sun and decided we wanted to come home and make frosé to enjoy out on our porch. So... that is just what we did! Making the frosé was pretty simple, and it turned out absolutely delicious!
