♡ Galentine’s Day Gifts: A Sweet Sugar Scrub ♡

My best friend is the one who introduced me to Parks & Rec, which is the reason I even know about Galentine’s Day (and the glorious masterpiece that is Requiem for a Tuesday). So it’s fitting that this year I decided to get a little crafty and make her a gift, consisting mostly of stuff I conveniently already had laying around. Susan, don’t hate me.

Without further ado, I present the most magical pastel unicorn fairy-dust sugar scrub you’ve ever seen in your life!~

Non-Year’s Resolutions

I did nothing for New Years’. I didn’t go out, I didn’t drink, and I didn’t make any resolutions. Why, you ask? 1) I have to be up at 5am for work, so that kinda precludes any drinking 2) I don’t enjoy going out (introvert, anxiety, etc.) and 3) making resolutions has always struck me as stupid because of the fickleness with which most people make them. Very few take their resolutions seriously, and by far the most popular one seems to be lying to yourself about how “fit and healthy” you’re going to become–even though you said the same thing last year, and the year before, and the year before that. But you’re really going to do it this time, by golly! Continue reading “Non-Year’s Resolutions”

Jesse Rutherford is Everything on “&”

I was browsing Spotify a couple weeks ago when I stumbled upon Jesse Rutherford’s new album “&.” Somehow I had heard nothing about it up until that point, even though it had been out for over a month already. He’s the lead singer of one of my favorite bands, so needless to say, I ran to listen to it. I feel his aesthetic, voice, writing, and influence are a huge part of what makes The Neighbourhood so good and I was excited to see what he would do on a project totally his own.

Top 3 Purchases I Made in 2017

Let’s talk about listicles. For those that don’t know, this is a mishmash of the words “list” and “article,” usually “21 Pictures of Cats That Will Give You Life” or something to that effect. They’re extremely clickable, easy to digest, and you know exactly what you’re getting into–which is why I think they’re so popular right now on big-name sites like Buzzfeed, Elite Daily, etc. Many times they’re overused as cheap, gimmicky clickbait, but I think they can be informative and fun if properly researched.

Heavy Rotation 2: My Top 5 Songs of 2017

damn-kendrick-lamar1. DNA. — Kendrick Lamar

I’m surprised this one even made this list since I don’t actively listen to Kendrick. I played DAMN. for about a week after it came out and once I felt like I “got” it, never listened to it in full again (I’m not much of an album person). Guess I must’ve had this track on repeat more than I realized. Continue reading “Heavy Rotation 2: My Top 5 Songs of 2017”
