Five For Friday for 12.27.2019

It's the end of the year and since there's a pretty good chance this post won't be seen, there is also a pretty good chance you'll find it regurgitated sometime in 2020. If you are here reading, though, I'll get right to it as I don't want to take up too much of your time. Here are five of my favorite Instagram accounts to follow (in no particular order):

Music Monday for 12.23.2019

Here are a few Holiday tunes for our final Christmas Music Monday. I tried my best to pick versions that maybe everyone hasn't heard yet. I've included a few well-known songs as well as some originals. Hope you enjoy!

Writer’s Workshop for 12.19.20

This week has been absolutely exhausting, so for me, it's all about coming home at the end of the day (or night) and jumping into jammies and doing as much or as little as I can, and indulging in some self-care. The theme I chose for this week's Mama Kat's Pretty Much World Famous Writer's Workshop is "List 7 things that bring you comfort."

Here we go:

Writer’s Workshop for 12.12.2019

This week the prompt I chose for Mama Kat's Pretty Much World Famous Writer's Workshop: "Tell us about something you collect."

I collect many, many things, mostly vintage: vinyl records, decor, housewares, dishes, drinkware/barware, coffee cups....but for the purpose of this post, it's all about that vintage purse/handbag life!

Product Review: Luminexi Premium Vibrating Rose Quartz Face Roller Massager With Undereye Press

I've been seeing these little rollers all over the place on the internet, and in two tv shows I watch (Jennifer Aniston used one in an episode of The Morning Show and Brenda Song used one in an episode of Dollface). I was curious. This product claims to help with wrinkles, firmness, undereye puffiness and skin tone, and is made of Rose Quartz. And I finally got one.

Book Review – The Winter Sisters: A Novel, by Tim Westover

Right before Halloween, I picked a book up from Netgalley which I had hoped to have reviewed BY Halloween. Needless to say, that didn't happen. But I did finally finish The Winter Sisters: A Novel, by Tim Westover, and get it reviewed.

I was so excited about this novel, because as a weird southerner AND appreciator of superstition, folklore, herbalism, the supernatural, and history, it makes my heart happy to find books which appeal to many of my whims all at once.

Writer’s Workshop for 12.05.2019

Here it is not even a week post NaBloPoMo and it seems I've already reverted back to my old habit of only posting to two blog linkups per week. My pitiful posting this week is mainly due to the work schedule getting wonky, which put my mind in a state of disarray, not unlike the house - but I digress. I haven't been procrastinating on posting, I just really don't have much to post about at the moment, although I am crafting some posts as we speak that I hope (and need!) to have finished before the end of the year. We'll see how that goes!
