It's been a hot minute since I linked up with Amanda so be prepared for all the favourites - I was saving them up.
The best book I've read lately is easily The Girl You Left Behind. Read it
Ok, this won't matter to you unless you're a Jane Austen fan, but if you are... you need this. I love to collect copies of my favourite books (I have more than 20 P&P...) and this book contains a bazillion different covers of Austen's work. It’s fascinating and fun to see the different book cover art through the years since Austen was first published. It includes international editions, first editions, movie-tie-in editions, mass market paperback editions, graphic novels, e-book versions, editions aimed at children and teenagers.. seriously. It's amazing. Alongside the gorgeous graphics, the author provides some hilarious commentary about each cover making me giggle and want to be her friend.
I would never wear this (or most of Taylor's outfits) but hot damn I wish I could. She looks amazing.
I think this movie looks super cute / lame / awesome. Anyone want to see it with me, because I know KC won't.
I'm no beauty blogger but I'm learning, and even though red is fun, it's not for everyday (for me). I stumbled across Milani Nude Creme on pinterest and I am obsessed. It's nude without looking like you're wearing concealer on your lips, and it's creamy and kinda pink and I just LOVE it. And it's less than $6 so, yeah.
Like the rest of the world, I'm jamming to Taylor Swift's 1989. I can't decide which is my favourite song, I loved 'This Love' immediately, but 'Blank Space' is so fun and I dig 'I Know Places' as well. Ok, 'Style' too. Ok, all of it. The highlight of our Saturday night was when Shake it Off came on, and we danced like we were in the video #noshame.
Although when I first heard 'Wildest Dreams' and she says 'no-one has to know what we do, his hands are in my hair, his clothes are in my room' I was like:
I took a bit of unnecessary time off from working out after my half marathon, but I finally - finally! - got back into the gym this week and it feels SO good. I haven't done weights consistently in a long, long time. I'm taking it easy and just doing lower body / upper body once per week and then I'll step up my game when I feel like I'm not gonna kill myself. I still want to do something other than running, and Amanda shared this video in her home workouts and I finally got around to doing it yesterday. Ow. That is all.
I love making fried rice at home. I've made cauliflower rice before which was good, but way too much work for a weeknight meal. So I made a mish mash of that one and this recipe for dinner the other night. I meant to cook some chicken but forgot, so we had a side of fish afterwards. It would be great with chicken or shrimp. As you can see, my cats think anything in the kitchen is for them.
Oh and of course, a couple of funnies for funsies.
Got any crazy plans for the weekend? AND OHMYGAWD DID YOU HEAR ABOUT GILMORE GIRLS?!
