This week is passing by so quickly and no matter what I seem to do it isn’t slowing down. Ironic isn’t it that I spent all winter wishing for summer and now that it has arrived I can’t stop it from speeding along.
I haven’t done a Monday Musings post in a while so I thought I’d change it up a little and update y’all on some of my favorite things right now. I’m going to focus on some material things in my life that I’m loving, because if y’all follow my Instagram stories you already know that Onyx and Rocky are my favorites so that doesn’t need to be reiterated here.
Pre-Cut Parchment Paper Sheets
This seems like a really lazy pick because I could just buy parchment paper but buying sheets of parchment paper is just so much easier. Especially when like me you are so bad at using that serrated edge on the box so my parchment paper always comes out looking all sorts of lopsided.
I’m back on the Daily Harvest grind so these metal straws are life. I won’t lecture you on why plastic straws are the worst thing ever and how by using them you are harming the environment. If you ever bump into my mother on the street, I’m sure she’d be more than happy to explain it to you as reducing waste is a passion project of hers.
I’ve been obsessed with this industrial storage coffee table from West Elm for a few years so it was about time that I had it in my own living room. My old office had one in one of the lounge areas and I could often be found sitting by it rather than at my desk.
In grad school I always worked from bed or the couch. As a result, I still do some of my best work in those spots. Let’s call it a bad habit that is never going away because I have a desk, I just share it with my husband and piles of papers/notepads so I’ve chosen to let them have it. The nice thing about this table is that the top opens to reveal storage on the inside (so clutch) but also allows for me to pretend I’m working at a table when really I’m writing a blog post while crushing season two of Quantico (basically my entire week in a nutshell).
This coffee table was on my registry so when the wedding hype died down and no one bought it I added it to the list of things I would buy when Colin wasn’t in grad school anymore and set it out of my mind. When it arrived as a surprise late wedding gift earlier this week I about lost my mind I was so excited.
I’m not sure if there’s anything quite so Canadian than admitting that my favorite yogurt flavor is maple but that’s a label I’m willing to embrace. Brown cow maple yogurt is my new favorite afternoon snack. I can’t drive by a Whole Foods without stopping in to pick up a few more for my stash.
Just over three months ago I upgrade my camera equipment and invested in a full-frame camera. I weighed the pros and cons of getting a new camera but once I read through the entire users manual and started shooting with it, I knew that the Nikon D750 and I would do amazing things together.
I have a lot more to learn but it’s amazing experience seeing how much my photography has evolved with my new tool. Really this should be at the top of my list because it’s my favorite every Friday. Also, every other day of the week.
What are you loving this week?
