Life Lately: Fall Sweet Progress Box Swap

The Sweet Progress Box Swap is back for fall! Plus, here's a little look at life lately.

Life lately…

Reading: Reading People: How Seeing the World through the Lens of Personality Changes Everything by Anne Bogel. I love Anne’s blog, and her new book takes a very interesting look at personality types.

Watching: Movies for The Fall Film Challenge. So far, I’ve watched Proof, Woman in Gold, Tropic Thunder, X-Men: Days of Future PastHowl’s Moving Castle, and Batman Forever.

Listening to: NEEDTOBREATHE’s “Hard Love”. This was my September theme song and pretty much says everything I need to hear right now.

Anticipating: Leslie Odom, Jr. (a.k.a. Hamilton‘s Aaron Burr) in concert. So excited for this.

Blogging about: My Fall 2017 Style GoalsGift ideas for cat loversFriday Favorites: Netflix and Cheese PlateWhat’s in my September 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag!
