The Latest Things: Volume 4

2016 is off to a pretty good start, you guys. I know we're only a few weeks in, but after some of the events that closed out last year, I'm thankful (and welcoming) all of the positive things around me right now. So, obviously, I thought this was a good time to talk about the latest things. Here’s what I'm into/what's going on lately.

Listening to: Adele. And I can't stop. I broke down and bought the digital CD of her most recent album the other day off of Amazon. And now I'm kind of sad that I don't have the actual CD to listen to in the car.

Watching: Making a Murderer. I have heard 994 things about this docuseries thing on Netflix. So I needed to jump on the bandwagon and check it out for myself. We're two episodes in and it's really interesting. I have so many questions that I hope will be answered, but don't think it's likely. I've also heard a lot about the backlash and the bias of the makers, but I'm trying to ignore that and just watch it. It's definitely good though, folks.

I love you the mostest card

Accomplishment: I sold out of one of the first items I made for my stationery store. And I'm pretty proud of that. It also came right around my year anniversary which I thought was pretty cool.

Hair towel

Beauty: I've kind of, sort of, maybe decided to grow my hair out. I tend to go in waves. Mostly because I wait to get a hair cut and then realize how much I miss having long hair. I haven't found a hair stylist in the Midwest yet and it's cold so I've been enjoying my long locks. The only issue? I hate (I mean h-a-t-e) blow drying my hair. Since it's been purple I've been working to blow dry it a little more so the color doesn't run. But it takes so long and I'm a drippy wet mess when I get out of the shower. So I finally broke down and bought a hair towel thing when I was at Target the other day. And man do I love it. It cuts down on drying time, frizzies, and it's kind of fun to wear. I can't find the exact one that I purchased online, but it was made by Conair and I found it in the section with all of the brushes and hair accessories at Target.

hello sign

Obsession: All of the home things. Obviously. We're in the early stages of figuring out the real décor (you know, paint and stuff) and I'm both nervous and really excited. Expect a lot of posts about that in the coming weeks/months.

What about you? What are the things that you're into lately?
