It’s been over a month since I last posted a blog post! Actually, it’s been over a month since I watched a YouTube video, wrote a blog post or even took a picture that I wanted to share online. I’ve tried to distance myself from the online world, because I have trouble not falling into jealous patterns and bad shopping habits when I’m so totally consumed with the internet. My month off has been really interesting. I’m not so sure what I’ve learned. It’s been relaxing coming home after work to not have to worry about adding more to my to-do list than I already have at the moment. Here’s what I’ve been up to!
I’m watching Shadow Hunters religiously. It started as something silly I could watch without really caring what was going on. You know, background noise! Before I knew it I was shipping Alec and Magnus.
I’ve been wearing my favourite vintage pieces over and over. There’s this one vintage lacey blouse that’s totally overdone but I love it!
I’ve been eating coconut curry dhal. I’m starting to considering doing a “healthy things depressed people can cook” series because it can be hard enough getting out of bed, let alone chopping and cooking vegetables and tofu. Dhal is the best because you just throw all the ingredients in a pot and let it boil/simmer for two hours.
I’ve been doing a tonne of writing. Actually, I’m trying to write a book. But I’m not getting my hopes up. Even if I can’t make it to the end, it’s great practice for next time.
I’ve been loving Grav3yard Girl’s room tour and the snaps of her new room! Ahh! If you haven’t seen it I implore you to at least watch a little. It is thirty minutes long, but I could certainly make it the new background noise to my life. There’s so much inspiration bundled onto those old shelves. I immediately jumped on Etsy and re-started my search for new oddities.
I’ve been reading a lot about swamp medicine and the herbal properties of plants for this book I’m trying to write. Never the less, if the book comes to fruition or not, swamp magic has always interested me. All the way back since I reviewed that Tom Hammock’s graphic novel An Aurora Grimeon Story: Will O’ the Wisp.
