I suppose the title tidily sums up the meaning of this post, but it still felt lacking without an introduction. Well, here 'tis. I was randomly inspired to share with you all some random things in my life lately. There. I have introduced the post.
~My new shampoo and conditioner are now a highlight in my life. I used to loathe hair washing (thick hair problems) but now I look forward to it soooo much because this stuff makes my hair so soft and clean and it smells like Hawaii and summertime and flowers and its natural-y. I say "y" because store bought hair products are never REALLY natural.
(I promise the company didn't sponsor me to say this. :P)
~ I'd like to say a few words to the people who owned our house before us about the choice they made to paint our dining/computer room bright red. Fire engine red. I just want to tell them I'm having so much fun painting the said room light green. I mean, who doesn't like having to do so many coats that your arm fell off and you had to take it to the emergency room?*
*This story may or may not be slightly exaggerated.
Okay, it's not that bad....after all, my mom and I are working together on it. But still. Bright red??? Ugh.
~ I've recently been intrigued by the fantasy genre (previously untrod waters, excepting Narnia, Middle-earth, and a few fairytale inspired books) and if you follow me on goodreads you may have noticed this. I've been adding quite a few fantasy books to my TBR shelf.
Any suggestions? I'm all ears. :)
~Library book sales are the best. See that stack down there? Those eleven books? (INCLUDING THE NEARLY BRAND NEW COPY OF Children of Hùron?!?) Yup. Guess how much?
|in the background you can see some finds from the previous library book sale I went to, haha|
~I should be editing Princess and the Pea, or writing more Rose and Isaac, or writing the backstory for my villain in PatP, but instead I'm scribbling a new story?? Send help please.
(Also, send extra help because I'm having trouble even with the new story. I feel very low on writing inspiration and motivation....but I want to write so much!)
~I've been learning that some days, what you need to do is take a nap. Yeah, I never actually fall asleep, but even ten minutes of close-your-eyes-and-burrow-under-the-blankets is enough to get you through the rest of the day. :)
(Also, putting "Concerning Hobbits" on repeat is a very relaxing source of background noise.)
~Thanks to Jordan's video, I discovered "Fitness Blender". I tried this workout and oh my word I LOVED it. Due to back problems, I reaaally need to focus on strengthening my upper body and this workout. This workout!!! It required absolutely no equipment and was so super duper easy, but at the end I was sweating and felt amazing. It actually got rid of a neckache I had woken up with. So, though I've only done it once so far, I have very high hopes. Definitely can't wait to do it again.
|not always, but it's what my heart would rather do haha <3|
~I'm going to see Newsies (in cinemas, not on stage) on Wednesday and eeepers I just can't waaaiiiiit to seize the day and carry the banner and....yeah. :P
IT'S GOING TO BE AMAZING.
~Have you seen this new clip of Beauty and the Beast? Just checking. ;)
(SO excited for this movie....)
~I've been reading The Robe lately and gooodness, it is SO good. Definitely recommend. I love the 1953 movie, but the book is immensely better. :)
Well, that's all my friends. I must leave you, for it's dinnertime. After all, food is my one weakness. *waves*
