As a lifestyle blogger, it’s good to keep up with the treads, find out what everyone is talking about or what they are up to, getting the best advice to starting a project, to get over something, to share how you feel…I could go on and on.
August has gone by extremely fast and I do realize that it’s only the middle of the month but I honestly have no idea where this entire year has gone. So far in August I have discovered a couple of things that I wanted to share with you just in case some of you all have interest in new things.
So here’s Everything Erica (1)
Reading: Into the Dark-Elizabeth Haynes
I started this book recently and I’m about half way through it. I try to read as often as I can. Usually during my lunch break I’ll take my book up to the Capitol and read outside on a bench..in the shade of course because your girl has no pigments in her skin. Anyways, that’s besides the point.
The book goes back and forth from 2003 to 2007. When I first started reading it, I wasn’t sure what I was getting myself into. It was easy to pick up the fact that there were flashbacks (when it does, it tells the year at the beginning). Its a true page turner and may be slow starting out for others. I do enjoy a good suspense book or a book that has a plot twist. Something that seems too perfect to be true turns into jealousy and something dark. I’m eager to keep reading!
Watching: Orange is the New Black (season 6)
I know, I know…I’m a couple of seasons behind but I actually completely forgot about the show at one point in my life. I decided to start back into it. I’m half way through season 6. To be honest with you, I really enjoyed the first two or three seasons of the show…after that, it kinda got boring for me and a little strange. Of course it’s pretty different but I even got Kane to watch it with me. Yeah, sure, he’s a little confused because this is the first season he’s watched…but I’m sure he secretly enjoys watching it with me!
Listening: Soulmate-Justin Timberlake
This is actually his new single that I just happened to pass while on the iTunes app.
SUMMER STARTS NOW!
It’s a nice, fun, little summer jam to listen to while on a walk, working out, sitting around or even enjoying a nice car ride.
Obsessing: FOMO Jelly Face Mask from Lush
I’m a huge fan of Lush and a lot of their cosmetics. I recently discovered the FOMO Jelly Face Mask. This has helped my skin a lot with moisturizing and the redness in my face.
Every morning once my face is clean from my shower, I rub a fair amount on my face and let it sit for 10 minutes. I then rinse it off with warm water and pat my face dry. I have noticed a significant change in the redness which has reduced. Plus it makes my face feel clean and moisturized (not oily) at the same time.
Trying: 20 Seconds of Courage.
This has been a series for a couple of weeks now during our church service. Taking 20 seconds of courage by choosing faith over fear. It takes 20 seconds for a battle to go on in your head. You decide…faith or fear.
There’s my August update for you all. What are you all currently reading, watching, listening, obsessing and trying!? I’d love to know!
