Latte, Maple Bacon Marshmallows, and my Bullet Journal

I can’t believe it’s already the 8th of September. It feels like September just started yesterday.

Here are some of the new things and some updates on what’s going on with me!

  • I just started watching Gilmore Girls on Netflix! I wish I could say it was in preparation for the Netflix revival I know so many of you are waiting for, but the truth is, I never got into this show when it was on the air. As a teenager, the show was too slow-paced for the girl who liked 15-minute cartoons and reality shows on MTV. Now, I’m able to appreciate the show. I only have a billion episodes to get through before the premiere, which happens on November 25th. Oh yeah–if you’re out of the loop on the Gilmore Girls thing and want a quick breakdown, this article on Vox does a good job of giving you the basics.

  • I recently finished reading this book All the Ugly and Wonderful Things by Bryn Greenwood. It is one of the few books I rated as ‘5-star’ on Goodreads, and other readers seem to agree since it’s rating is sitting at a hot 4.3/5. It’s a strange love story about a girl born to two meth addicts. Her father runs a large meth lab while her mother is basically on meth 24/7. If you’re looking for a more unique story to read, this is a good selection.


  • Finally trying out the Bamboo Charcoal Soap by Herbivore! I’ve heard great things about their products, and I’m a fan of beauty products that use charcoal. I only received it yesterday, so I’ll let you all know how it turns out at the later date.
  • I’m still bullet journaling! I’m still finding it awesome. If you’re interested in learning more, check out my post!
  • I just did a hand embroidery project over the long weekend. Yeah, what grandmas like to do while sitting on their rocking chairs, in between baking cookies and stepping out at 4:00pm for an early bird dinner. And it was really fun! And it’s actually pretty easy! I’m planning to write a post on it in the near future!

That’s pretty much it! Just a quick post from me!

I’m thinking about making this a regular series where I update you all every 1-2 weeks on more personal things so that you guys get to know me! If you have any feedback on these posts, I’d love to hear about them in the comments.
