It is just so deep into September, already. Not cool, guys. Slow down.

First of all, something very important is happening today. TODAY Scotland is voting on its independence from the UK. John Oliver had a few words about it and I just about lost my mind. “If they [leave the GBP], they either have to join the currently unstable Euro, or revert to Scotland’s old currency, sheep and threats.”

“Real talk: There is very little about the modern evangelical church that is creative. And this is a huge problem.” Yes. 100% this exactly.

Unqualified Advice From Nick Offerman that made me bust into silent-tears-laughter in public.

So fox pets seem like the greatest pets in the world.

I’m making Pumpkin Praline Soft Pretzels this weekend because it’s time to move from denial to acceptance with this whole “fall” situation. And no person or force in the world can stop me.

Happy Thursday, everyone.

What’s In The Bag?

what's in

I happen to be one of those people who likes to be prepared. At all times. Everywhere I go. This means my bag is usually stuffed with notebooks, snacks, books, and anything I could possibly need for an afternoon out. Oh, it looks like it’s going to be chilly later? Instead of going home I’m going just to pack pants, a scarf, and… Idunno a blazer, too. Might as well.

Enter: The Ame & Lulu tote. (more…)

PODCASTS

Maybe you hear the word “podcast” and think of middle-aged men who want to learn about the rise and fall of the Ottoman Empire but don’t want to read a book about it.

You would be right.

But as a twenty-something female who wants nothing to do with the rise and fall of the Ottoman Empire, podcasts have still found a place in my life. Once you turn into a “podcast person” it’s hard to stop. I listen to podcasts when I walk around the city, when I don’t feel like listening to music, or when I want to learn something new. Here are a few of my favorites: (more…)

ENFJ

ENFJ (4)

If you haven’t taken the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, you should take few minutes or your day and figure it out. Each person on this planet is one of sixteen personality types, which illustrates how you prefer to work, plan, and get your life together. For the sake of not putting ourselves into categories, I should mention that each person can filter and adapt personality traits to certain scenarios. But the MBTI shows your home base — where you naturally go and what you naturally prefer.

I’m an ENFJ (Extraverted iNtuitive Feeling Judging): (more…)

People have a lot of words about Obama’s sartorial choices.

“When we strive to honor both our budgets and our friendships, we become more intentional about each.” In a world of excess, this wisdom from Darling is crucial.

The most thorough resource for building your bar cart — strainers, shakers, hi ball glasses? Let’s get involved.

Well, pretty sure that is the greatest love story I’ve ever heard.

Maybe it’s time to step back and look at your content. So inspired by this Ember and March post – I need to do something similar this month!

Happy Thursday, everyone.

Always Have A Project

always have a (1)

A wise old man once told me something a wise old man once told him — “always have a project.”

Some call it a hobby, some call it a passion project, some call it a side hustle.

Whatever you call it, you should have a project of something you love in the works.

Maybe you write about new hip-hop releases. Maybe you’re an aerial yoga instructor at night. Maybe you have a photography business capturing baby photos and engagements on your days off. (more…)
