Let's get into some favorites from the week! Unfortunately, I don't have any TV show updates to share because it's been quite a busy month, and I'm really far behind in all of my shows! I will share some favorite songs (NON Christmas so you don't get annoyed with me yet!) and fashion looks of the week. Have a great weekend!
Lynne invited me to watch Reel Rocks 10 at Carnegie Mellon University! If you haven't heard of Reel Rocks, it's an annual, world-wide tour featuring the best of the year's climbing and adventure films. This year featured Tommy Caldwell, Kevin Jorgeson, Alex Honnold, Jimmy Webb, Daniel Woods and Dean Potter. The videos were inspiring, terrifying, hilarious and completely entertaining from start to finish. If there's a stop near you (check it out here) I would highly recommend going! It's simply amazing.
A few weeks ago, I joined a great blogging Facebook group, and I've already picked up so much advice and tips from all the ladies in the group. One mentioned that I should have my social media networks linked, and shareable buttons for each post. Now you have it! I have my Twitter, Pinterest, Email, Instagram and Bloglovin' linked (so please follow me if you'd like!) and also options to share my posts. I appreciate every share that I get, and now it's so much easier! On a side note, I always appreciate and welcome criticism or feedback on what I can do to improve, so never hesitate to call me out in the comments or leave me an email if you have suggestions! I would love to hear it :)
Christmas Piano Pandora Station
I promised my music wouldn't include any Christmas songs, but I couldn't resist talking about a Pandora station! I've been listening to this all week when I've worked on blog posts, and it's been such a great station to listen to. The songs are all so soothing and beautiful, and not over-the-top with Christmas. If you also love acoustic guitar, you should check out this station!
Happiness Project Update
Gold Star of the Week: Ever since I made it my goal of the month to sleep without my phone, and also lower my data plan, I've realized just how much I was unnecessarily attached to my phone. I would always be on social media checking out what's going on or browsing the Internet for who knows what. Now that I limit myself during the day and at night, I've found out that I'm really not missing much, and I feel like I'm much more present. I know Dan appreciates it!
Demerit of the Week: A few weeks ago, I picked up a big bag of gummy bears (my weakness) and a bunch of chocolate goodies from Trader Joes, and I have been eating them non-stop this week! It's one of those foods where you don't realize how much you've eaten until the bag's almost empty and it's only been a day. I noticed my skin started to break out and I can't sleep at night, so it's definitely time to get my diet back in check and cut out a lot of sugar!
I hope you like my new set up for the pictures! I think this shows off the outfit a lot better and is more realistic.
