august favorite thingsThe internet is filled with a lot of scary news these days. But, it’s also home to a lot of fun and wonderful things too. Whenever I get down or discouraged about life, I always turn towards the outdoors first. Walking, breathing in fresh air or just exploring nature always helps put life in perspective. My second go-to is honestly the internet (sad, but true) because as much as technology can bring bad news, it can also connect you to new inspiration and people of good.

When I end up down a rabbit hole of the internet I often feel exhausted and exhilarated at the same time. Know what I mean? Instead of storing all of these new-found discoveries in my head or my current favorite notebook, I thought it would be fun to share.

This way my current obsessions might become a new discovery for you! Consider it your dose of friendly “You HAVE to check this out!” gossip.

Here is what I am loving this month:

Currently Reading: The 5 Love Language
Currently Watching: House of Cards- Season 5
