May 2019 Favorites

I can’t believe how fast this year is flying! It’s nearly the end of May! Well, here are some of the things I’ve been loving this month:

Rain! 

This month has been super rainy here in Cincinnati, OH, but I actually kind of love it. I really like how relaxing and cozy a spring storm can be. It makes me want to curl up on the couch with a cozy mystery and a cup of tea. Also, the smell right after rain is one of my favorite natural scents. I want a candle that actually smells like this.

 

Recumbent Bikes!

I’ve been dieting and exercising a lot in may – actually I’m down about 10 pounds this month! While I’m not going to lie and pretend I suddenly enjoy broccoli, I have discovered that I love the little recumbent bike setup that I have in my apartment. It’s a great way to burn calories while also watching a movie!

 

Southern Charm!

Southern Charm is my new favorite reality tv show on Bravo. It’s not actually new – just new to me. It follows a bunch of socialites of various ages who live in Charleston, South Carolina. It is FILLED with drama! My two favorite people on the show are Patricia (a very fancy, matriarchal figure who is hilariously direct!) and Cameran (a super down-to-earth person who isn’t afraid to point out the absurdities of her friends).

 

Fit-and-Flare Dresses!

I bought my Easter dress online on Amazon and got a fit-and-flare dress from Oxiuly. It’s super flattering, even on my curvy shape. I loved it so much that I bought 5 more in different colors and patterns. They’re so comfortable too and even have pockets! Afterwards, I even saw this Buzzfeed article which shows that my experience with this dress is apparently nearly universal.

 

Well, those are the highlights for this month! Thanks for reading,

Update On My Disappearance

Well, hello there. It’s me again. Yes, you might have noticed that I disappeared again. There just aren’t enough hours in the day to accomplish everything I want to do, so this blog has been a bit neglected since my 31 Days of Horror series.

So, one of my goals for 2019 is to create more reasonable goals for myself! I know that Haute Couture Society will still be taking up most of my blogging/networking time, but I want to do a better job at keeping up with this one too. So, to help with this, this blog is going to be a bit more casual. I’m planning to have general updates here about writing projects and information about things I’m liking (books, movies, etc). Some posts may have a combination of a lot of different things.

To get started, here are some things I’m loving this December:

  1. Candles – There are so many great scents that come out around the holidays. Since I have a fake Christmas tree, I have been loving my Christmas Tree scented candle for some extra ambiance.
  2. Krampus – From cheesy movies to funny t-shirts, I have been obsessing over Krampus this year. (If you don’t know who this folklore figure it, check it out here). This is the perfect combination of Christmas and horror!
  3. Reality TV – Vanderpump Rules is back!! I’m a huge fan of all things Bravo, but this Real Housewives spin-off is my absolute favorite!

Here are some things I’m hating this December:

  1. Bumble – Being single during the holidays sucks. I’ve been trying to use the dating app Bumble, but it’s been so discouraging. I just don’t seem to have much in common with single guys in the Cincinnati area.
  2. Vegetables – I’m on a diet and it’s going pretty well. But even though I’m forcing myself to eat more vegetables, I still loathe them…and always will.
  3. Darkness – Despite my love of horror, I still get really sad when it’s dark both when I leave for when and when I’m coming home from work.

Well, thanks for reading! I promise, I’m going to try to do a better job to keep up with this blog, share my favorites, and update people on my writing projects.

Happy Holidays!
