Currently loving…

This quote.

It’s just so relate-able in every way and so important to remember that everyone’s path is different and we should remember that. And not compare ourselves. I am convinced that comparison is the root of all evil and the demise to our own happiness….

We all do it…but we have to stop.

As much as I love the holidays, the new year gives me a bit of anxiety (and excitement, too!) about all of the things I have not yet done…this quote came to me at a good time!

Also I am currently loving celebrating everything to do with Christmas. Obviously!

I have been blessed to be able to see a Christmas Story the musical with my mom and sis followed by a lovely dinner, attend a cookie swap holiday party, a beautiful and festive winter walk, and a holiday farm and flea. And it’s not even Christmas yet!

Christmas comes but once a year, so time to soak up the season. Although it flies by, I really try to get as much out of it as possible!

Cue the Christmas celebrations…

By the way, these are my favorite pants ever lately. Pleather in the front and regular jegging in the back (split) and burgundy. Got them at Goodwill but they are from Target!

Currently reading…

This article about how to stop being afraid of everything

This article needs to be printed out and hung over my bed and/or by my mirror so I can read it and recite it to myself each and every day. I promise you will not regret this read and if you are like me, it will definitely bring you more awareness about yourself and things you know you have needed to change for awhile. And hopefully, the courage to do so.

I have also found a book that I am hooked on and cannot put down, which has not happened to me in a long time! I may actually finish a book before the new year, when I will most likely make another resolution to finish a certain amount of books that year. Lolz.

Anyway, it’s called Behind Closed Doors by B.A. Paris-

Here is the bio, taken from Good reads website:

“Everyone knows a couple like Jack and Grace: he has looks and wealth, she has charm and elegance. You’d like to get to know Grace better. But it’s difficult, because you realize Jack and Grace are never apart. Some might call this true love.

Picture this: a dinner party at their perfect home, the conversation and wine flowing. They appear to be in their element while entertaining. And Grace’s friends are eager to reciprocate with lunch the following week. Grace wants to go, but knows she never will. Her friends call—so why doesn’t Grace ever answer the phone? And how can she cook such elaborate meals but remain so slim?

And why are there bars on one of the bedroom windows?

The perfect marriage? Or the perfect lie”

Currently watching…

After mama and I finished The Crown on Netflix, (SO GOOD) I was not quite sure what to do with my life.

However, I am still watching the new season of Shameless and I am a few episodes behind right now.

A new show I have picked up is West World.

Omg. West World.

The bio, taken from HBO’s website, says:

“The one-hour drama series Westworld is a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the evolution of sin. Set at the intersection of the near future and the reimagined past, it explores a world in which every human appetite, no matter how noble or depraved, can be indulged.

Basically, there is a western theme park called Westworld and there are “hosts” that live there, which are artificially created to appear very human-like and cater to the very high paying visitors that come to the park. These hosts are meant to have certain lines like actors, not deviate from their “norm” and appear to have it all together for the guests… but as we know in shows, things don’t always go as planned or that would just be boring! The rest you will just have to watch for yourself…

Currently listening…

 

I made this little playlist for you all of my favorite new tunes I have been listening to obsessively of as late. I will keep adding to this…

 

My favorites on here are Planez by Katelyn Tarver and Hidden Edelweiss by Spark Alaska.

Also, not listed here- but Single by The Neighbourhood and Someone that loves you by Honne are also some of my favorites lately…

 

What are you up to currently in December?

  1. I heard She and Him play in Anthropologie the other day and it made me so happy ❤ Their music (and really, Zooey's voice) is just beautiful. Also! That quote is wonderful–and so true. I wrote once about comparison being the thief of joy. We all do it, but it's important to remember that our paths only make sense to us and that we can't get discouraged by someone else's journey.

    Loved seeing your pics–looks like you're enjoying the holiday season (PS: Love your pants!)
