Book Review: When Less Becomes More

I finished reading this book over the weekend and wanted to share my thoughts on the book. I think there is no better time than now to read this book as we are all in a time period where we have time to slow down and focus on things that we enjoy doing to pass the time. If you have already read this book I would love to know your thoughts on it!

Overview: This book is the newest book by Emily Ley where she talks about her journey over the last few years to live a simpler slower life. The book is broken up into 10 different categories including topics on social media, rest, wellness, faith, and more. The book starts off with her talking about this idea of the "paradox of everyday empty". Where our lives are often filled with so many tasks and things we feel we have to do yet we often feel overwhelmed and empty. In each chapter, she tells different stories and experiences she has had regarding questioning and rethinking the way we think about and live out all different areas of our lives. 

Spring Shopping Picks

Today I thought I would share some joy and bright colors with some of my favorite new spring arrivals from my favorite brands! I am loving all the bright colors and embroidery this spring. If you are interested in picking any of these items up now is the perfect time to do it as pretty much every retailer is running some type of sale. I would love to know what your favorite pieces are for this spring & summer.

Tv Shows I Would Recommend

I am sure everyone has been watching a bit more Netflix and Hulu these days. I always think it is interesting to see what other people enjoy watching. So today I am sharing my recommendations. These are shows I am currently watching or have previously watched. I would love to know what shows you are loving right now or shows I didn't include in this list that is a must see!

Current Shows I Am Watching: 

1. This Is Us // If you have not watched this you MUST start it. The way the episodes are written where they switch between past, present, and future is something I have never really seen in a TV show before but it makes it so interesting. 
2. Grey's Anatomy // I started watching this with my mom years ago and have watched it ever since. A few years ago I went back and watched it from the beginning because when I started watching it with her I hadn't seen the older seasons. It took me a long time because there are so many seasons but so worth it.

Favorite Loungewear Set

I hope everyone is hanging in there and finding some fun things to do at home! I thought this would be the perfect time to share this casual loungewear set with you. I got it after Christmas at Loft from the Lou & Grey line as I typically work from home a few days a week (even before coronavirus). I found myself needing more loungewear to wear around the house. This set is so comfortable I think everyone needs this! It is just so cozy. The top and bottom are sold separately so you can mix and match colors. If I was wearing this out and about I would pair it with a cute pair of white sneakers. 

I hope you enjoy the throwback mirror style pics because I don't have a tripod for my camera and I am not leaving my apartment much these days to take any pictures.

Five Fitness Classes To Do Inside

I will be the first to admit I hate working out inside. Before I joined a gym in high school I would try to do workout videos at home but I never felt as motivated as when I took a class and physically went to the gym. Not only am I more motivated to go when I am paying for the membership but I love working out in a class setting with others. With that said right now, that is not an option. So today I wanted to share five ideas for videos/classes you can do from home! A lot of these companies are offering subscription codes were you get a few months free.

Fifteen Things To Do Inside & Ways To Stay Positive

Hey everyone while things have been crazy for everyone and changes are happening all the time one thing I am excited about is having more time to blog and spend on improving my website! I always feel like I have too much other stuff going on that it is hard to get into a blogging routine. So I am taking this time while stuck inside to start back into blogging. While things have been so strange not interacting with anyone in person as I am working from home and live by myself I have been enjoying keeping up with other bloggers on social media. Things can definitely get pretty boarding so I wanted to share things that I am going to be doing over the next few weeks to stay productive and remain positive! A lot of people have been posting similar ideas but I wanted to share my ideas and give my input because you can never have too many ideas. I would also love to know what fun things you have been up to. 

Thought we could all use a beach photo just about now
