Life Lately: OMG it’s November

From seeing Leslie Odom, Jr. in concert to directing my first kids musical, here is a look at life lately.

Life Lately…

Reading: The Comfort Food Diaries by Emily Nunn. I love a memoir that involves food. Scattered throughout the author’s journey to sobriety and belonging are delicious sounding recipes I can’t wait to try.

Watching: Poldark. Season three is currently airing on PBS, and the drama between the Poldarks and the Warleggans continues to build.

Listening to: Rag’n’Bone Man’s “Human.” My theme song for October. Also, loving Climbing Tree’s “Fall.”

Eating: All of the cookies. I love these tahini cookies from Shutterbean.

Directing: The Most Epic Birthday Party Ever. Last month, I directed my first kids musical. I had so much fun, and the kids did, too.

Seeing: Leslie Odom, Jr. in concert. His voice is like velvet. I, also, went to an Alan Alda talk/book signing.

Blogging about: Chocolate body scrub and other good thingsLife’s little indulgencesLast minute Halloween costume: Pretty WomanWill Amazon Outfit Compare help you decide what to wear?, and What’s in my October 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag!

Link loving: How to be an Amazing Influencer Like MeAD Visits Robert Downey Jr.’s Playful Hamptons Home, Tex Mex Breakfast EnchiladasHow Jane Austen’s Emma changed the face of fiction.

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

  1. Oh that is so awesome that you directed a kids musical!! And that book sounds interesting–I haven’t read a ton of food memoirs but they’re right up my alley as a food + book lover 🙂

  2. November! OMG! It’s here! What a fun thing to do to direct a kid’s play. I’m looking forward to checking out those links. I’ve heard that memoir by Nunn is worth reading. I’ll have to add that one.

  3. I love the color of your converse- it’s my favorite color, and perfect for the season! Someone else just mentioned Poldark to me yesterday! She’ described it as an 18th century soap opera haha. Sounds pretty interesting! I love Humans, but haven’t heard the other one; I’ll have to check it out. So cool that you got to see Leslie Odom Jr. perform! I agree- his voice makes me melt!

  4. i love a good memoir with recipes too so i will have to check that one out. i really want to watch poldark because i’ve heard it’s amazing, but i want to try and read the books first. we shall see.

  5. I tried to watch an episode of Poldark but it was on a plane and they only had a random episode and it was halfway through a big storyline and full of references that I just didn’t understand so it was a bit of a fail. Nice scenery though. I think I might try again from the beginning!
