Currently: August 30, 2016

Hey, it's Tuesday. Still the beginning of the week but not a Monday morning and not late enough in the week to reasonably anticipate weekend happenings. How about something to look forward to on the day before the hump of the week? 

In attempts to start holding myself accountable for keeping up my blog, I'm going to start a weekly post called "Currently: {insert date}." A cluster of things I'm currently obsessed with: songs, journals, news that you should know about, Instagram accounts I'm casually stalking, whatever else might bring a little boost to the Tuesday schlumps. 

So without further ado, here's "Currently: August 30, 2016." Click the italic headings to visit the links.

Decomposition Notebooks:
The designs are charming + inside covers are witty. Facts stated: 100% post-consumer-waste recycled pages. Soy ink printing (can I get an amen for fewer nasty VOC's // volatile organic compounds?). That means it's easier to recycle! I bought mine at Target for about $8 but you can order different designs off Amazon or B&N too. 


Nalichniki Instagram:
A stunning feed of Russian windows + wooden architecture that satisfy my love for ornate + unique details on buildings. May or may not have spent too many minutes scrolling. 


Melissa Hawks' Pep Talk on Boldness:
"The things you do aren't the bold thing. You are the bold thing." Preach it, sister.


Iceland. Everything Iceland:
Volcanos! Waterfalls! Valleys with green mossy bumps! Iceland is my dream adventure. I can't afford a trip there now but I did the second best thing and watched Bear Grylls trek through the land the other night in a Man Vs. Wild episode on Hulu. 


"Big Magic" by Elizabeth Gilbert
"I believe that inspiration will always try its best to work with you — but if you are not ready or available, it may indeed choose to leave you + search for a different human collaborator."

And their entire new HARDLOVE album, let's be real.
