Loving Lately

Happy Monday, friends! I wanted to start this little series to round up, from time to time, things I’m really digging. From recipes to podcasts to small shops to books, I thought this could be a good catch-all to share all things I’m loving lately. Here we go!

  • This olive oil dispenser and these salt and pepper bowls are perfect for leaving right next to the stove, making it so easy to drizzle just the right amount of EVOO in a pan, or to quickly reach for and pinch salt and pepper to season what you’re cooking.  
  • I’m sure you’re all already aware, but I’m late to the game. Trader Joe’s Everything But The Bagel seasoning is so, so good. I like it on salads or on breakfast food, but here’s an article to give you even more ideas on how to use it. 

  • I’ve started bullet journaling, and love this notebook. This organizes my thoughts, and it’s especially helpful to get all of my to-dos for the next day (or coming week) written out on paper before I go to bed. This way, my head is clear and I have a list to look at when I get up in order to start tackling my day. I also read in a book, and I’m trying my best to implement, slower, more mindful starts to our mornings. This means writing out 3 things you’re grateful for in this same journal and having breakfast together prior to picking up any technology. It doesn’t always go this way, but sometimes is better than never.
  • I love the SWORKIT (free!) app for working out your core. You can set it for any amount of time between 5 mins and 1hr, and the app prompts you and shows you the circuit exercises to perform during that time. It’s such a convenient, easy, quick, and FREE way to work out at home.
  • I love diffusing oils as I start my day, and 3 drops of Orange, 3 drops of Lemongrass, and 1 drop of Peppermint has been my favorite summery combo. I use this diffuser (though I’ve had my eye on this one) and this set of oils, but any will work!
  • You all know that I’ve been listening to the My Favorite Murder podcast (so good!), but I also recently discovered Heavyweight and it’s quickly become another favorite. Here’s a little excerpt on what it’s about: Heavyweight is a podcast all about emotional time travel, and the attempt to pull something stuck in the past into the present. It possesses unquantifiable magic created by the host Jonathan Goldstein. He manages to bring charm and humor to unexpected moments: while helping a woman find out why she was kicked out of her sorority years ago, or locating the person who wrote the letters that fill a suitcase someone has inexplicably been carrying around for years, or assisting a man in finding the driver who hit him so that he can say thank you. Heavyweight doesn’t make you better informed—but it might make you better.
  • And last but not least, I ordered these Gingham pajamas marked down to $31!
 

Hope some of these bring you some inspiration as you start your week! Hope you all have as happy of a Monday as Monday can be! XO.
