AM Coffee Talk #21 - Jumpsuits, Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery, and More!
I haven't had coffee yet as I'm writing this. It feels wrong, so very very wrong. Anyways, I hope y'all are having a great start to your weekend. I'm currently in Morgantown, WV aka my hometown and home to my beloved university. I had a dress fitting yesterday (and it was my birthday) so we've just been kicking back and relaxing with good food, friends, and some seriously great weather.
It is so hard to believe that we're winding down another month. May is going to be such an exciting month for Justin and I that I am literally bursting with excitement (and anxiety). I've had some pretty amazing moments for April 2018 and I can't wait to share them more in detail in my April Favorites on Monday.
But for now, grab your coffee (I'm still trying to get my hands on one) and pull up a seat at the table for SMC #21!
ONE | Jumpsuits
I am the first to admit that I don't really take risks when it comes to fashion. As the jumpsuit trend has blown up, I've looked at them longingly from afar, pretty sure I would never be able to pull one off. To my surprise, I actually bought two jumpsuits in the month of April. The first I purchased from Roolee Boutique which is seriously becoming a fast favorite place to shop for me. And then when I was at Walmart Thursday for an oil change, I decided to browse the racks to pass the time when I happened upon this little number. Yes, you read that right. This jumpsuit cost me $15 and came from Walmart. I'm pretty sure I'll be going back to pick it up in at least one other color. In another turn of events, I've worn both jumpsuits for my birthday. They're seriously comfortable and I highly recommend trying this trend out! Look for a Trending post on it next month!
TWO | The Confused Millennial Podcast
Rachel and I became fast friends when we first met in the blogging sphere and I have followed her blog, The Confused Millennial, for a while now. It's a great place for advice for navigating your twenties which we all know can be super stressful. So when I found out Rachel was going to launch TCM to the podcast world I was THRILLED. I listened to every episode in one day and even left a review on iTunes which I literally never do. That's how you know it's good.
THREE | Spending quality time with my mom
For the first time in 3 years, I got to spend my birthday with my mom and I was loving every minute of it. We got to talk about the wedding, life, and everything in between. Since losing my grandma in college, I've learned to never take these moments for granted.
FOUR | Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery
I was so freaking excited when I heard this game was going to finally launch. It was the first thing I did after my workout on Wednesday morning. A lot of people have issues with how slow the gameplay is but I'm really enjoying the game as a whole so far. I love the detail they put into little parts of the game, like providing an actual Hogwarts letter and being able to interact with various things throughout the game like portraits and suits of armor. I am almost through Year 1 and I can't wait to see what happens next with the storyline!
FIVE | Paying it forward on Instagram
Friday on Instagram I did something a little different where I shared a few Instagram accounts that I've been loving lately. It has been on my heart for a while to do and when I saw that one of the gals I admire was going to do something similar I knew God was telling me it was time to do it! I think we can gain so much from sharing others on our platforms which is why I try to do it as much as I can, even though my platform may not be the largest.
