Tea Talk .003

March 16, 2015

(a corner of my home currently)

Happy Monday! Here's to another round of Tea Talk. I'm sipping on some Vanilla Chai as I dish to you about my latest plant purchase, my new relationship, and my some of favorites this week (including a beauty fave, a flower find, and a Netflix pick!). So cozy on up with a beverage of your choice as we get down to some tea talk.

Simon, The Succulent 

I wish I had a fun/cool project to update you on and though I am working on a ton of projects - work projects, school projects, freelance side projects - I don't have any I'm doing just on a personal level.

My most recent "project" has been taking care of Simon, The Succulent (pictured above in the cool gold planter). Simon has been the perfect addition to the apartment. He usually sits on that little shelf in the corner next to a candle, but he was getting some much needed sunshine on the window seal here. Every time I come home, he makes me smile. He brings life into the apartment and that's just what I need. PLUS, he fulfills my need to see something green and living. Though days are getting longer and a bit warmer, I have the distinct feeling winter is not quite done with us yet. 

For now, Simon is my little lifeline to the spring/summer weather to come.

A Little Life Update

A lot has been on my mind and I've been going, going, going for what feels like forever. There are now only 54 days until I graduate college and my mind is blown. Where has the time gone? Every week feels long, but man, time is flying by.

I feel like my internship is going well and I'm academically surviving. 

Though I don't know how much I intend on sharing about this subject, I think I should mention that in recent months I've entered into a semi-serious relationship. That, in addition, to the rest of what I do has been consuming a lot of time (in a good way). It's been an interesting transition, that's for sure. As someone highly independent, it's been a bit of an adjustment from going from a "me" to a "we." This relationship has brought out behaviors, responses, and tendencies I never quite fully realized about myself; some good, some not as great. 

Girl, Check This Out!
  • I took the plunge and subscribed to Messy Box. After seeing the unboxing video, I was sold. 
  • Just discovered Bouqs and think it's the epitome of cool. Dying for fresh flowers of my own!
  • Watched the entire season of The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. I find it easy to watch, a little ridiculous, and a lot of funny. It's the perfect thing to watch if you need something light hearted.
  • Beauty pick of the week has to be this Sonia Kashuk tinted moisturizer with SPF 15. It's easy and breezy for days where lighter makeup is a must, has staying power, and makes my skin look more poreless. Awesome!

What have you been up to? Let me know!
