Fearless Spring Mix 2021

I apologize for not publishing a post last week. I'm still going through some things and I just couldn't bring myself to come on here. I'm still a work in progress, but I'm getting there. It's not usually like me to not blog, but these are not normal times. I find myself needing a little bit of the normalcy back though, so what better way than to do that than with an easy enough blog topic? Music! I thought I would share a few songs that have been on my radar and wearing out my replay button recently.

And as always, I'd love for you to give me any recommendations of what you've been listening to and loving. This is the Fearless Spring Mix, because heck yes I'm celebrating Taylor's new version. I'm also trying to encompass that feeling - fearless. I need more of that! This mix features new and old and I hope you give those songs that are new to you, if any, a chance. 💜

March 2021 Beauty Favorites

Let me tell you, March was not my friend. April hasn't started off any better. I'm not willing to be fully open about why, but the truth is I am struggling. It's affecting me mentally, emotionally, and physically. My general and social anxiety is high, my usual techniques to help my mild OCD are failing me, I can't get to my physiotherapist for my knee, etc. etc. Things started truly affecting me around October and has slowly built up. If you're feeling this way, like you're trying to stay afloat in a sea that keeps tossing you over and under, you are not alone. This past year has taken so much from so many people. Remember to listen to what you, your body, and your mind needs. I know I'll get back to where I function better and have more peace, it's just going to take some time and work to get there. I'm thinking of you. I'm with you.

Two of March's favorites were featured in February and none of these are new to a favorites post. Since I'm not getting out much right now (hello lockdown life), I stick to the same few products to throw on and go or to take pictures. Can't say I put too much effort in most days! I haven't even bothered with nail polish, since one of my coping mechanisms is biting my nails and I can't seem to get that back under control at the moment. I'll get back to that eventually. I'm glad this is Friday and I'm hoping to have a quiet weekend and do my best to get my brain to come out of overdrive for a hot minute. Where's an on/off switch when you need one?! I hope you all have a good weekend. Take care of yourselves. 💞

Blog of the Month: April 2021

In March, Katie from Katie Snooks was my featured blog. You can read that post and see other past featured blogs under the "blog of the month" label! Being my blog of the month gets you a designated blog post, a sidebar button, and a mention on my Twitter account. The sidebar button stays up all month long. I don't believe in necessarily making bloggers pay for advertising and I'd much rather show you blogs that I really enjoy reading. And I hope you end up enjoying them too!

This month, I've chosen A Cup of Jo as my featured blog. While the blog is by Joanna Goddard, it really is a community with guest pieces. It is lifestyle and you can find just about anything on it, but I always appreciate the ones about sex, marriage, fertility, and so forth. The ones about politics are always a good read, as well.  Her guest contributors do not hold back and I really admire the honesty that comes out in their posts. If her blog has somehow escaped her radar, here's your sign to check it out!

Old Navy Spring 2021 Haul

I had Super Cash to use and while I used the majority of it to stock up my husband's closet, I did take advantage of a few sale prices for myself. This is actually two orders, because shoes were on for half off the other day and I needed to grab a pair of my husband's favorite summer sneakers at under $20! So I placed another order (and grabbed a new item that hadn't been previously available) and now I have Super Cash for April, if I so choose to use it.
