October was a MONTH. I had a hard time focusing and felt like I was split in 20 different directions, but it’s done and I managed to make it through with minimal strain.
Some November updates:
- I am not doing NaNoWriMo. Not even for inspiration. I have a goal for in 2018, and I’m going to focus on that without the distraction of a NaNo goal.
- I have a few videos planned, but if November looks like October, my posts are going to be sporadic at best.
- If you’re a Mary Poppins fan, we just recorded a whole episode on Mary at The Bluestocking Circle. Give us a listen 🙂
Just wanted to sit down and share some thoughts on settling and why I won’t settle for good enough when it comes to stuff. It’s a minimalist win for me.
Just another monthly update: life, health, birthdays(!), and more. With technical difficulties for that extra touch *wink*
Finished the Veronica Speedwell mysteries and now I’m in that weird space where I can’t find a book that lives up… In the meantime, I’m trying to find the time to read Doing Harm: The Truth About How Bad Medicine and Lazy Science Leave Women Dismissed, Misdiagnosed, and Sick by Maya Dusenbery (because as a woman who has been dismissed, misdiagnosed, and chronically sick, I want all the support I can get).
A few posts ago, I gushed about how much I love the Ilia lip conditioner in Pink Moon, then I started to suspect it was causing some irritation. I stopped using it for a few weeks and wore it again last week. Suspicion confirmed, it makes my lips look like I’ve been out in the cold too long. Really dry and red around the edges. I’m debating whether I should return to Sephora or give it away. It had such promise.
Other things I’m loving:
My InstantPot! My mom gave me a mini and I’m loving the speed and efficiency it provides. Even just using the saute function speeds up my meal prep and saves me the extra time and heating costs. (Old Florida apartments were not made for climate change temperatures. My apartment is hot and the kitchen heats up like you wouldn’t believe. Needless heat? No thank you.)
Minisode 8.5: Final thoughts on Star Wars/Spaceballs (and even Howl’s Moving Castle), favorites, and an announcement
In other news: The podcast is now available on Spotify!
You can find the episode on Podomatic, Apple Podcasts, or Google Play.
All the things, and where have I been?
The meds are working and I’m starting to feel better. Even I can’t believe the difference a week made 🙂
An update on my new treatment and more.
I’m thinking of calling these “haulettes”. What d’you think? I don’t film many of these, because minimalism, but I like to think of these as extended reviews for the savvy shopper.
All items are from Look Human and purchased with my own monies.

Things are looking up at last (fingers crossed, as always), so I thought I’d take a moment to reflect on my goals for 2017 and revise some of my original plans.
Because it’s been so quiet around here, I decided to film a vlog explaining ALL. Watch me rock the wet hair, no-makeup look, as I blather on about all the things.
I filmed this at the end of February, so this is technically not part of March’s shopping fast experiment. However, it’s still part of an effort to remain accountable and track my spending.
Better late than never.
It’s time for another bujo spread! Keeping it simple this month; just some slight changes to last month’s layout, but definitely one that is working for me.
