After a fast paced and wonderful week in Bellingham, I am home for the weekend. My family pupper, Bella the beagle, has been living in Bellingham with me as an emotional support animal. Let’s just say that she is quite pleased to be home, apartment living isn’t her thing. So this weekend we are going to enjoy our big yard, comfy couches, and endless amounts of food. In between all that we might check out a trail nearby and hit up the local farmers market. What are you up to this weekend? Let me know! Here are a few links from around the interwebs for your weekend…

Things that should exist for single people

Interesting stories about parenting around the world.

Speaking about parenting…they do have a big environmental impact.

This week felt like it would never end or get better. Each day I woke up exhausted and unmotivated and today was just the icing on the cake. I was almost late to class, forgot close-toed shoes for lab, and forgot to eat breakfast and lunch. I felt like a complete mess, but I prevailed. I got up, I showed up, and I survived. And despite the terrible start to my day I decided to make the most of what was left. I went thrifting, ate dinner with friends, and cuddled a pupper. And thanks to those simple little actions I ended a rough week on a happy note.

How this week felt…

Incase you missed last weekends chance to march for change.

Indoor gardening for soil haters.

You and 6/10

Pretty jeans that would be fun to recreate. (Cause there is no way I’m paying $129)

Perfect summer adventure bag/basket.

Beautiful white kitchen redo.

Some pretty earrings and a dress to go with.

I hope you have a good weekend and don’t forget to engage in self-care if you’ve been having a rough week!

So this weekend, despite the impending doom of midterms, looks like it is going to be a good one. Saturday is Earth day, and here in Bellingham that means that there will be a myriad of events to attend. So many events to choose from, yet I can only be at one place at a time, bummer! After surveying my options I opted to March for Science instead of sitting inside listening to talks. When in doubt opt for action. Climate change is real my friends and I encourage you to get out there and March for Science this weekend! What are you doing to celebrate Earth day this weekend?

Find your nearest March for Science

A pretty dress to make for summer

Summer capsule wardrobe bags that are pretty.

I stumbled across this and her blog and am kind of in love now.

Everyone in Bellingham is wearing stacked rings and its so beautiful that I need to hop on this trend.

This embroidered patch is pretty rad… hehe

A podcast series that I devoured in two days this week.

A little reminder.

I hope you have a terrific weekend!

Driving over Snoqualmie  pass last weekend.

This week has been a busy one for me and when I was finally done today, I didn’t know what to do with myself! I had nowhere I had to be, nowhere I had to drive to, just me and a whole lot of time. I started out this lovely weekend with lunch with a good friend, then proceeded to finish a knitting project.  I am hoping to take some time for me tomorrow and so far that looks like going to yoga and maybe a hike. Anyway, I hope you all had a good week and don’t forget that despite the mess you can find yourself in some weeks, to remember that it will all be okay in the end. Here are a few links from around the internet for your weekend…

Tiny houses, my new obsession.

8 face masks to try out this weekend, I tried the banana turmeric one tonight.

Beautiful beetroot seeds that I want to buy to plant in the spring.

A beautiful blog.

Um, this looks amazing…if only I had a kitchen this weekend.

A cool student travel blog.

A song I’ve been listening to on repeat this week.

How to be an active ally to immigrants and refugees.

Something to remember amidst the chaos of the past couple weeks.

 

How to Recover From a Tough Week (Weekend Links 1/20/17)

Some weeks are really hard and you just have to accept that. I’ve had a rough week and it just seems like the bad stuff never ends. But knowing that I needed to escape I planned a weekend trip away to visit my cousin. It will be nice to get away for the weekend and spend some time with family. I hope you are having a relatively okay week and if you aren’t, don’t forget to take care of yourself! This weekend links post is going to be a list of things to do for yourself when you feel sad…

Allow yourself to cry and be sad, then pick yourself up and start to move on.

Drink something warm and comforting.

Do yoga and enjoy shavasana a little bit more than usual.

Take a long hot shower. Wash the pain down the drain.

Keep busy, start a few projects. Make something that will bring you joy.

Surround yourself with kind people, people who love and care about you.

Detox from your phone, social media, netflix. Take time to just be present.

Get outside, go for a hike, watch the sunset, just go out and get some fresh air.

Speak kind words, rise above the negativity.

Eat delicious nourishing foods, I promise it will make you feel better.

Curl up with a good book and let yourself get lost.

Go away for the weekend and take the time to recharge.

Clean out and pair down your life. Consider minimalism or a form of it.

Journal how you feel everyday. Let the words go as you write them down.
