Summertime Playlist

Hi everyone!

Sorry I missed posting last week. It’s been awhile since I’ve missed one, but I have been so busy these past couple of weeks! I finally found the time to sit down and write a post just recently.

It’s summertime — a season of ice cream, trips to the beach, and movie nights with friends. I thought it would be a great time to share my summer playlist! This is a list of my go-to songs during the hot, sunny days of summer. 🙂

These songs are all clean. I mostly add songs with lighter subjects matters and fun, upbeat tunes.

Bookshelf Tour — #2

Hello everybody!

In my first bookshelf tour I showed off my display-type shelf on a wall in my bedroom. In this post, I’m going to be showing off a shelf which is definitely more functional than the first one. I keep most of my mysteries and quite a few classics on this shelf. I’m excited to show off some of my vintage book collections!

My Top 5 Favorite Books of All Time

Hey everyone!

A lot of readers say that they can’t choose under 10 favorite books, but I have a list of ones which are just a cut above the rest for me, and which pretty much define the types of books I gravitate to and enjoy reading.

I thought it would be fun to do a post with a list of my top 5 favorite books of all time as of June 2020. (It’s definitely subject to change as I read more!) I’ll give a brief description of what each book is about and then discuss why I love it so much. My absolute favorite book will be at the number one spot.

(I only included fiction in this post, but Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis is my favorite nonfiction book. 🙂 )

What I Got for my Birthday (2020)

Hi everyone!

My birthday was back in April. I had a good time celebrating with family, even though it was in quarantine, and people bought me some great gifts. I thought it would be fun to show what I got in this post!

Just a disclaimer that I’m not trying to brag — I just enjoy seeing other people’s birthday hauls and I thought it would be fun to do one of my own. 🙂

From Winter to Spring (Outfit)

Hi everyone!

It has definitely been getting warmer these past few weeks, and that means I can start wearing skirts again! I love vintage fashion, and although I don’t dress in the vintage style all the time, I still like incorporating elements of it into my everyday wardrobe — like skirts!

With this outfit I tried to combine some winter colors and pieces with some more summery pieces like the shirt and skirt. I thought the necklace added a nice touch. 🙂 I was hoping to find the skirt still in stock at Kohl’s, but I guess it’s out of stock. I tried to find one with a similar silhouette. I couldn’t find any with the colors of my skirt.

Skirt – Kohl’s (Similar) // Boots – Target (Old) // Shirt – Target (Old) // Jacket – Macy’s // Necklace – Used

Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries Review

Hi everyone!

After I finished Star Trek: TNG, I needed something new to watch during quarantine. I had already watched the pilot of Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries a couple of years ago, but never continued. I decided to give it another try. I’m very glad I did!

The show follows the adventures of the Honorable Miss Phryne Fisher, a wealthy woman living in Melbourne during the late 1920’s. She’s certainly not a “typical” woman for that time period. She loves to speed in her new motorcar, marriage doesn’t interest her in the least, and she runs her own detective business. Helping her investigate her cases are her companion, Dot, Detective Inspector Jack Robinson, and Constable Hugh Collins, along with some other regularly-appearing characters.

There were a lot of things I loved about this show, but also a few things I disliked. I’ll be discussing them in this post!

3 Things I Learned from Giving Up Social Media

Hi everyone!

So as some of you might know (I’ve mentioned it on the blog before a few times), I gave up social media for Lent this year. It was about 47 days of no Snapchat, Instagram, YouTube, Facebook, VSCO, Goodreads, or Pinterest.

I did this last year as well, but I kind of failed. My willpower gave out about halfway through. I really wanted to try it again this year and commit! So that’s what I did. I learned a lot of things throughout this challenge, so I thought I’d share some of the them with you guys!
