Here are some non-bookish articles I really liked this past month and my latest loves.

1 / Who hasn't heard Oprah's speech from the Golden Globes? I didn't watch the awards ceremony but I did look this up the day after. Absolutely inspiring.

2 / The EveryGirl shares "6 Easy Things to Do on Sunday That Will Improve Your Week" and I already do everything on this list except sleep early. (Working on that!)

3 / Most people I know prefer to shower at night but I've always been a morning shower-er. This New York Times article on the matter makes a good case for doing so but ultimately provides a compromise.

4 / A Beauty Junkie in London's "Here's to the OG blogger" is a great read for anyone that's been blogging for 7+ years (like myself!).

5 / One of my pet peeves is when people give me grief for taking photos because they assume I only do it to post on Instagram. They couldn't be more wrong. I love how PopSugar addresses this with "A Case For Why Taking 'Too Many' Photos Is Actually a Way to Live in the Moment".

6 / I dare you to read Ellen Pompeo's no holds barred interview with Hollywood Reporter and not think she's a freaking badass.

7 / I've been feeling stuck lately and it's a feeling that seems to creep up every couple of years. On Thought Catalog, the writer says that success is "not a straight line forever climbing upward" and this feeling is normal. I found a lot of comfort in this post.

8 / I semi-regularly go through my Twitter and Instagram accounts to unfollow people, for various reasons (ie. because of stupid algorithms, I ironically have to follow less people to actually see more). But PopSugar frames unfollowing as a form of self-care and you know what? I agree with that too.

9 / I have yet to travel solo although it's something I have considered. Brooke Saward from World of Wanderlust shares the lessons she's learned from traveling solo.


1 / This Dermasuri Mitt is seriously the best body exfoliator. You use it while in the shower and you can actually see the dead skin being scrubbed away.

2 / I told myself I wouldn't buy any new hair products but the stylist who cuts my hair used the R+Co Dallas Thickening Spray on my hair and highly recommended it. My hair feels so soft after blow drying!

3 / If you follow me on Twitter, you know I've been rewatching Fringe and halfway through, I really wanted a mug. I ended up buying Fringe Division Mug from CafePress and it's perfect.


Do you have any links or loves to share?
Would love to hear about them!

  1. I'm in total agreement about unfollowing being a good form of self-care! I still occasionally end up unfollowing certain accounts for my own reasons, and it really helps reset my mindset.
