Life Lately

Life Lately: A quick rundown of what I'm reading, thinking, and doing the last few weeks.

Life Lately…

Making: An evening gown and challenging my sewing abilities.

Drinking: Lots of water. I don’t drink nearly enough water and am working on changing that.

Wanting: These jeans. This dress. This skirt. And, this tee.

Wishing: This world was a happier and less complicated place.

Enjoying: Alice Through the Looking Glass. Ignore the bad reviews. It’s a sweet, whimsical film for fans of the first movie.

Watching: Too much Netflix. West Wing and Gilmore Girls are still going strong in my house.

Wearing: Pajamas. One of the pitfalls of working from home is that street clothes are not a high priority.

Feeling: Excited about my summer plans.

Reading: Don’t You Cry and Longbourn among other things.

Bookmarking: Blogging tips and tricks. You can check out my favorites here.

P.S. Today I’m linking up with Kristen and  Gretchen.

  1. Ooo, evening gown – looking forward to seeing that one. Happy belated birthday! (i think it was last month?)

  2. Here from the What’s New With You Link-Up. I freaked out when I saw the photo at the top because OMG Emily Giffin has a new book out!!!! Eeeeek!! Marked the release date on my calendar already 🙂 Did you get an advanced copy?

    1. I did get an advanced copy, and I’ll be reviewing it next month! Thanks for stopping by 🙂

  3. Gilmore Girls should always be going strong in your house:) PS I LOVE “I bake things so I don’t kill people” in your profile 😉

  4. have you read that mr darcy vampyre book? hahaha i remember reading it a couple years ago i think. i totally agree about the world being a happier place, wouldn’t it be nice. no such thing as too much netflix though!

  5. Scarlet and I want to see Alice Through the Looking Glass, bad reviews or not. I’m in!
    I am terrible about water and I wonder what the long term effects of it are!

  6. I am excited about our summer plans, too! I can’t wait to see the dress when you’re done sewing it. I really, really need to drink more water, too!


  7. Cheers to Netflix! I just started watching How to Get Away with Murder, and Pretty Little Liars Season 6 arrived on Netflix yesterday, so I’m totally bingeing that over the weekend!


  8. I am defo going to see alice – at the moment my head is in all things vampire aka the originals and the book by CM owens on my kindle.

  9. That’s a wish I wholeheartedly second. I often feel like life has become needlessly complex and that are too few people are (unfortunately) happy. Here’s to the hope that summer can increase both areas – if only for a few, sizzingly hot weeks.

    Big hugs,
    ♥ Jessica

  10. Wow an evening gown, that is so awesome!! I have been watching lots of Netflix lately as well and I would love to work in pajamas, but my co-workers at my office may not so much 😉
