Taking Stock July

Can we talk about how July has flown by! Right when I thinkgs are settling down my life revs right back up again. I'm over half way through my summer drawing class and it's not going half as bad as I thought it would. I'm really looking forward to August because I've got some awesome things coming down the pipeline, but first let's take a look back at July.


HERE'S WHAT I'VE BEEN UP TO THIS MONTH

Reading: The Girl With All the Gifts by M. R. Carey
Watching: Stranger Things Season 1
Listening: San Fermin- still
Learning: How to not switch from blogger to a self hosted Wordpress
Instagramming: The first drink I legally purchased myself


SOME THINGS I'VE BEEN LOVING THIS MONTH

1. Book of the Month Club

My parents got me a year long subscription for my birthday and let me just say a monthly book subscription is a genius idea. I've made a goal to read 24 books for pleasure in 2016, and with this I'll be sure to stay on track. Basically judges find five really good, new books and you can pick one each month. I chose Missing, Presumed from the July selections and really like it so far, and what's great is they're all hard backs which would normally cost a ton. p.s. You can get 50% off a 3 month subscription with code REFER50!

2. These Black bootie wedges

Ok, so they're a little too tall for work and I probably couldn't run around campus in them, but my sister got these and I immediately went out and bought a pair of my own. They were such a good deal and were almost out of my size!

3. Nike 2-in-1 shorts

I got two pairs of these from the Nike outlet last week and have practically been living in them. I've also started weight training, so I like the coverage of the compression shorts and the range of motion of the outer short.

4. My Classic Camelbak

I bought this a few years ago for Austin City Limits and it has since made a revival after the release of PokemonGo. I love being able to throw my wristlet and external battery in there and be ready to go. I'm on level 13 but still haven't figured out the whole gym battling thing yet.


By the way there's still time to download and print my August 2016 calendar above. Follow me on Twitter and Pinterest and we'll talk soon!

21 things I've learned in 21 years


I hit 21 earlier this month and wanted to share some life lessons I've figured out thus far. These range from general life hacks to long term career advice, and are in no particular order.

August 2016 Calendar

free, calendar, printable, free printable, freebie, printable calendar, free printable calendar, pretty, flower, calendars, 2016

Can we talk about how I'm already seeing back to school stuff in stores and there's no way I'm ready. This months calendar was really quick to make, but super easy to use.

Taking Stock June

I've decided to start up my "Taking Stock" posts where I summarize what I've been up to. I'll share things I like (music, blog posts and such), things I've been doing and reading recently.

It was tough to find time to blog last spring. It was my first semester of full fledged major classes and I was in a panic about grades early on. Plus I was working two jobs which gave for little free time. I took time to decide what was important to me. I buckled down and even got on the Dean's List last semester. Anyway, things have mellowed out a bit and I've finally found time to start blogging regularly again.


HERE'S WHAT I'VE BEEN UP TO THIS MONTH

Watching: Parks and Rec Season 1
Learning: Rudimentary Coding for my new job
Instagramming: Me on the beach in Panama City Florida

SOME THINGS I'VE BEEN LOVING THIS MONTH

1. Yeti Rambler 

I picked this up during my Florida Vacation and it has changed the game on thermoses. On our 12-hour drive back from Florida I had perfectly chilled water the whole way. 

2.  Erin Condren Life Planner 

I ordered mine on the launch date (when they were having all those horrible server problems). I had switched to bullet journaling last semester and though I'd never go back to a traditional–or such an expensive–planner. But then I saw this gorgeous cover and the new neutral layout and I decided to give it another try.

3. Stop, Breathe, & Think 

The app was originally made for kids and teens, but I really love the cute design and the progress tracking. And unlike other meditation apps, this has tons of free content. It felt sort of weird to be sitting at my desk each morning with my eyes closed, but after a week or so of it it started feeling more comfortable.

4. Fossil's Preston Multifunction in Papaya

I've been needing a quality wristlet for some time now. I'm notorious for bringing just my phone out whenever I don't feel like lugging out my entire purse. I like this one because it holds my phone perfectly and I can easily tuck in the wrist strap and throw it in my purse.

That's it for this month guys. Be sure to find me on Pinterest below to keep up with TCD updates and follow my day-to-day on Instagram and Twitter.
