Before I got into blogging, I had a handful of bloggers that I followed pretty religiously. Now that I'm more "in" the blogging sphere, I follow a wide range of bloggers and creatives to gather inspiration and to connect. And while I follow a wider variety of creatives, I still follow my favorites very closely - they are my favorites after all! I follow specific bloggers for specific reasons; sometimes it's their style, their travels, their inspirational posts, or for the fact that I really enjoy their writing style or personality. So if you're looking for some places to gather inspiration these are some great blogs to check out.
Happy Friday, y'all! I'm so glad to be back writing on Mad's Muses (more to come about that next week) and I'm even happier that you all are still sticking around to read. During my hiatus I took time to wind down and think and develop new routines. One of our newest pastimes since the weather has been so nice recently is to take evening strolls. It may not sound like much, but it's the perfect wind-down activity. Not to mention, Augusta is a huge fan. ;)
Those of you who know me well know that I love to eat. I've never been one to be able to diet - I lack the needed discipline, oops! - or even cut back on foods that I love. When I get a craving for something, I eat it. I'm a self proclaimed foodie who'll eat anything. Recently, I forewent this thinking and ditched meat for eight days. Here's what happened.
In recent years, Disney has reopened its vault of classic movies but releases them with a twist - with life-action films instead of cartoons. In the beginning I was skeptical about all of the remakes, but most of them have been true to the original story lines, but normally go into much more detail about the characters.
If you follow me on Instagram, you know I'm a professional bruncher. I love a good Bloody Mary or latte paired with a spicy omelette or waffles. I mean, YUM. Breakfast is the best, and it's even better if it's eaten at lunchtime. I've lived in the Cincinnati area for a little over a year now and I've scoped out some of the best places to grab brunch. From small cozy hole-in-the-wall cafes to local chains, I've tried 'em all.
In the past, I was never one to stand up to people. It's not necessarily that I think I'm wrong or didn't want to stand up for what was right; I'm simply a reserved person. However, with all the hooplah going on in our society today taking a stand should be a priority. It has become a personal goal of mine to start standing up for myself - and for things I believe in.
Recently I've bought several great items and I love them so much that I knew I had to share them with you guys. I also recently re-fell-in-love with Asos and bought a ton of items from them. Sprucing up my apartment has been a pretty big priority too, of late. I want it to feel like home instead of just another apartment and it's safe to say it's on its way. :) Aaaand my newfound skincare routine & products are the bomb. Whew. This post includes a lot... deep breaths. Happy shopping!
