Weekly Roundup (8/2-8/8)


^^^That pretty much sums up the feels for this week. Feet up, very chill. :) 

Went to Spiral Noodle, Ellwoods, and Captain Buzzy's this week which was fun. (Though, to be fair, I go to Ellwoods every week!) 

I bought this new ottoman to hide our gaming and electronic stuff from the tiny humans. I love it and they don't know it opens. Overall, I'd call it a win/win.


Target had the matching chair that I may or may not have been drooling over just a little bit. 
Just a tiny bit. 


Wait for me, chair, I'll come for you. <3

Here's what else I've been up to this week:

Writing-  Nada. This next week I'm dedicating some serious time because other than blogging, I've done absolutely NOTHING in the writing department.

Reading- 4 more chapters of City of Bones by Cassandra Clare down. At this rate I may be lucky to finish a book this month!

Weight Loss-  One pound down. I discovered these veggie chips at Ellwoods that I have pledged my allegiance to. They are delish. I also made homemade kale chips, which you will read about later this week. :)



Gaming-  Dove into Elder Scrolls Online which was fun. Not Skyrim level exciting, but overall it's a fun game. Still really enjoying Destiny. I'm going to be reviewing both of these games in the near future.(Feel free to add me on Xbox!)

Music-  Stuck with my "Discover Weekly" playlist made by Spotify. It changes every week and this week they really nailed my taste. Kudos to Spotify! (Check me out on Spotify to see my playlists!)

News/Causes- I love the way he turned the Disney Princesses into a cultural commentary against period shaming. Bravo! I watched the Fox debates and can I just say- Donald Trump is a disgusting pig. America should be ASHAMED that he is leading the polls. Absolutely SHAMEFUL!

What I'm Wearing- Super casual all week. Cute tees with leggings, capri leggings, and jeans. Paired with long necklaces and flip flops. 




















Beauty- So I've gone sans makeup all week, with the exception of lip gloss. My face has had the worst breakout of my life going on, so all of my efforts have gone into taming that beast. I took a strong look at our personal care products this week and am really going to be making an effort to get cleaner more natural products in our home. 

What I'm watching- The husband and I started watching "Masters of Sex" and I'm HOOKED. 

Mommyhood- Eczema is the bane of my existence. One of the tiny humans seems to be developing into a bookworm, which makes me beyond happy. Fun fact- crayon is a real bitch to clean off of car windows. #TrueStory

Self Awareness- Ironically, I'm realizing that I need alone time. Like, I crave it. If I go a few days without ever having a second for me, I get a little nutty. So, I now have a sitter coming once a week while the husband is at work so that I can have some quiet alone time at least once a week. 

That's it for this week, folks!

As always, leave me some comment love!
