A new series & a new year, hooray! Since finishing Mad's Muses' first ever series last month I've missed sharing my favorite ideas & things so I decided to start a new indefinite series called Musings of the Month. Through this series, you'll be able to see kind of what's on my mind for the upcoming month, whether that's a book I plan to read, a dress I want to purchase, or a trip I'm planning. There are so many good things coming about in 2017 and through Musings of the Month I hope to share some of them with you. :)
One | Garth Brooks & Trisha Yearwood
One of my lifelong wishes is coming true this month - I'm going to see Garth & Trisha in concert! This Christmas I decided to gift myself, my dad, and Michael with tickets to see country music's favorite power couple. I have to say, this was definitely as much of a present for me as it was for my loved ones. ;) Everyone is pretty pumped to see them, and I'm so excited that they're excited.
Two | Everlane's $100 Cashmere
To say I'm eyeing Everlane's $100 crewneck cashmere sweaters would be an understatement. Finding quality cashmere for this price is killer! Plus, Everlane's motto is "radical transparency" and it's not hard to see why. They lay out the amount it costs to make a piece, where it's manufactured, and what they sell it for. And the best part, Everlane's clothing is ethically & responsibly made, so you can rest assured that your clothing purchase is doing nothing but good. Attempting to purchase clothing items that are responsibly made is one of my few "resolutions" for 2017.
Three | The Bachelor
Everyone's favorite guilty pleasure is officially back! I'm not ashamed to admit that I am flat out obsessed with The Bachelor, and have been for years. I love that now you can guess about upcoming episodes & pick Nick's top four girls (and final rose recipient!) and earn points versus your friends in their new online Bachelor Fantasy League. My friends and I have a group in the league and it's so fun guessing and group messaging everyone during the episodes. Who doesn't love this stuff?
Four | Outlander
Recently, I've been a Game of Thrones addict, speeding through the first three books and watching the first two seasons of the show as I go; however, I recently got my subscription to Starz back and that meant I could finish the second season of Outlander. It doesn't get much better than these books and television series. I'm obsessed. Watching the last couple episodes of Outlander made me want to fully immerse myself back into the book I was a quarter of the way into about a year ago - A Breath of Snow and Ashes, the sixth in the series - so that's exactly what I've been doing. If you haven't read or watched this, you def need to.
What's on your mind for this month?
