Happy Sunday, friends! If you’re like me, you may be losing track of what day it is. Ha. So let this serve as your random reminder that it’s Sunday. So if you can, slow down, do some self care, and practice gratitude for mental health. Those are my usual weekend goals. And here are 10 random things I’m loving lately.
This photo is a batch of mango and lime lamingtons I made from Benjamina Ebuehi’s cookbook, The New Way to Cake. Delightful!
Have you completed your “summer bucket list” yet? I still have a few things I need to hurry up and do. But a couple weekends ago I crossed one off because I had a painting party with my mom and my niece. It was SO fun! I need to have more painting parties with friends.
Lately, I have been really happy with my skin. Maybe it’s the weather, maybe it’s my age, but I have a suspicion it’s because I have been really consistent about washing and then using this simple toner before bed. I wish I had known about toner in high school … or college.
Trying to pay attention to time zones and be a total fan girl stalker to snag some Heidi Kenney Halloween mugs this season. They go fast when she has a launch, so cross your fingers for me. And if it’s too soon for Halloween merch for you, I get it, but agree to disagree. 🙂
Next weekend’s baking project: these graham cracker snickerdoodles look so good!
Does anyone else use the app Duolingo? It’s not new, I am just new to it. I’ve been brushing up on Spanish vocabulary for the last couple months and I love how it teaches in a way that feels like a game.
And in case you missed my life update as of late, my beloved best doggie friend, Lovers, passed away on August 19. I’ve been very, well, sad since and I’ve had a hard time focusing on work or other life things. It’s been a crappy couple of weeks. BUT thank you x100 to everyone who sent me a card, flowers, a comment on social media, etc. It truly does mean the world to me, so thank you. -Emma
