Happy March! We had a little taste of spring here for a week or two, but it’s been back to cold this week. Our poor plants don’t know what to do with themselves! After feeling like I was in a funk for a solid month or so, I finally feel like I’m getting my groove back.
Lately I’m …
Eating: Recently, my sister had me try dried mango. Initially, I was not into it — the texture had me feeling like I was chewing on leather. But the flavor has me hooked, and now I kind of like the work I have to put into chewing it. We’re lucky and can sometimes get ours from the local farmers market, but Trader Joe’s has yummy dried mango too.
Reading: I just finished Feminist Fight Club: An Office Survival Manual for a Sexist Workplace and my neck is tired from my nodding in agreement and recognition.
Wearing: I recently picked up these loafers from Target to replace an old pair of black flats. Mine are a half-size down from my usual shoe size and I’ve really liked them for work wear.
Watching: I started the second season of The Crown as soon as it came out, but abandoned after a few episodes because I just wasn’t feeling it. I tried again and finished it up last week while I was sick — I think the second half of the season is better than the first, and it did take me a while to get used to the disjointed episode story lines and the presentation of time passage, but I am happy I finished it. If you still haven’t watched it and/or are not feeling so sure, I would recommend sticking with it until the end!
Planning: I’ve got two trips coming up, one for work and one for fun. I’m heading to Las Vegas for a work conference. It’ll be my first time there and I have absolutely no interest in the typical Vegas-y things, so if you’ve got off-the-beaten-path recommendations, please send them my way! Then I’m heading to Charleston for a bachelorette party, which should be super-fun.
Using: When I was home a few weeks ago, I had to steal some lotion from my mom because I have dry, angry skin and I cannot go without! She had this baby oil gel on hand and I liked it so much that I bought my own as soon as I could. I love the subtle shea and cocoa butter scent.
