Week in Review, Vol. IX

WIR 9

Hello and welcome back to my blog!

I’ll be honest, during quarantine, when I should have been creating content, I found it extremely hard to focus and my creativity just was not there. However, now that I’m back to work and my routine is finally going back to normal, I’m excited to share lots of content and some BIG news coming soon!

What better way to jump back into the blog than by bringing back my Week in Review series! A quick recap of what I’ve been up to: house hunting, getting my health and fitness in check, tackling my TBR list, and getting back into the swing of things at work.

Quick Reads

I’ve been working more on my self care and getting my health in check now more than ever before. This The EveryGirl article is full of great new wellness trends to fit into your routine.

Lately, I’ve been increasing my water intake, and here is why you should too, and exactly how much you should be drinking in a day.

In honor of this being my birthday week, here is an interesting article from the Washington Post about why we maybe shouldn’t be blowing out our candles.

Whether conspiracy tiktok has you on the #FreeBritney train or you’re simply hearing the phrase everywhere, The Cut has some more information on the ordeal.

What I’m Reading

“The Shadows” by Alex North – Unfortunately I haven’t had a ton of time to dive into this one yet, but rumor has it that it’s the best thriller of the year so far! Learn more about it on its Goodreads page.

What I’m Watching

Ryan and I have been binging Designated Survivor on Netflix and we are OBSESSED!! We just finished the final season and are so sad it’s over. I’m still making my way through Handmaid’s Tale, and we recently started Unsolved Mysteries on Netflix, and it’s sooo good!

What I’m Listening To

Podcasts that make me giggle:

Absolutely Not / Heather McMahan

The Bitch Bible / Jackie Schimmel

Songs that are stuck in my head thanks to TikTok:

Wait a Minute! / WILLOW

Stunnin’ / Curtis Waters, Harm Franklin

Banana (feat. Shaggy) / Conkarah, DJ Fle

Savage Love (Laxed – Siren Beat) / Jawsh685, Jason Derulo

Watermelon Sugar / Harry Styles

Taylor Swift’s new album Folklore will be on repeat all day!
