Week in My Life No. 13

Happy February! The time is really flying by, although I could do with more warm weather. The past two weeks have been relatively uneventful for me. I has mostly been focusing on school/work with a few other things thrown in. Every Tuesday night we go over to our friend’s house to watch the Bachelor. Hazel gets some play time with her German Shepherd friend, Zoe. I also have been reading a lot and doing yoga almost every day. I did finally start going to some yoga classes again so I am hoping to keep that up in the coming weeks. We also have had a couple of game nights with our friends, one of which was last night Saturday. It was a blast and I am really glad I pushed myself to get out of the house.

If you follow me on Instagram you probably know that Hazel really loves to be right there while I do yoga at home. It is so cute but can be a bit challenging!
Dogs
Hazel and Zoe hanging out. It is so great for her to have some dog friends close by and she just loves when we go visit them!

In other news I was not as productive at work/school as I was hoping to be. I ended up getting distracted with other things and then I got super sick on Thursday. I am not sure what happened but I barely left my bed and got pretty behind on a few things. Tomorrow (Monday) is kind of my make up day since I ended up having to deal with some other things on Friday. I have a pretty crazy to-do list for this week. We have also been pretty good about taking Hazel on walks. I have heard very mixed things about puppies and walks but she loves them so much so we have been doing shorter walks about every day.

My favorite winter outfit. It was actually warm enough for this jacket but I think we are supposed to get lots of snow and cold for the next couple of days!

Hazel got a super soft doggy blanket!

I did relatively well with my cooking goal this week. I made a delicious vegan soup that lasted us several days. It was a veggie stew but we added spinach, sauerkraut and avocado as garnish and it was amazing. I also baked something new yesterday which was fun! Today we hung out with some friends and made food for the Super Bowl. The half-time show was pretty amazing and there were a few great commercials.

The amazing stew! The recipe was from Ellen and Andrew Fisher’s Epic Vegan Food.

Waiting for Aiden to get out of an interview. Hazel and I had a great little walk around campus and I had a long chat with my mom!

Interesting articles (and many videos):

Recycling some unexpected items. All about recycling and being sustainable so this is super useful.

Patagonia fighting climate change. Patagonia is donating their huge tax cut to fund different organizations fighting climate change. This makes me so happy!!!

Ireland planting trees to fight climate change. Also this article has great organizations working to save trees.

Alexa Chung visiting the Dior atelier. It is amazing to see the time and effort people are putting into these clothes.

Shay Mitchell’s Home in AD. Yes this is another celebrity home tour because it is absolutely gorgeous!

An insightful take on aspects of Little Women with Great and the cast. Yes I went down a Little Women Youtube rabbit hole. Here is another great discussion with Greta and some of the actors.

Everlane came out with leggings. I love Everlane so I am 100% on board with this and I did order the lichen colored ones!

Reading: I am actually right in between books right now and will probably start Things in Jars later tonight. It is going to be released on the 4th of February but I got mine as a January book of the month so I am a little behind.

Wearing: I don’t really have anything new this week but I am still loving my Adidas sneakers and am debating whether or not I should invest in some Veja sneakers. I love that they are sustainable brand and I know I would wear them a ton. If you have them I would love to hear your thoughts!

Watching: In all honesty I have gone down a couple of Youtube rabbit holes and don’t feel super great about them. I sometimes find great things but I often feel like I just wasted a ton of time. On the other hand I am really looking forward to watching Taylor Swift’s new documentary!

Overall the last few weeks were pretty mellow. I have been able to take some much needed me time and I have been prioritizing my mental health. I want to feel better and to be continuously striving to be a better person! I hope you had a great weekend and my this week bring lots of happiness, love and productivity!
