Charisma – Pianos Become the Teeth released this track ahead of their full album release for Wait For Love (2/16). They’ve transitioned remarkably from their early, scream-o years into equally thoughtful but more melodic.
Happier in Hollywood – I am a regular listener of the Happier podcast with Gretchen and Liz, but for whatever reason I put off listening to this companion podcast – featuring Elizabeth and her writing partner Sara. Maybe it needed to come to meet at the right time (I listened to Happier while in NJ and Gretchen lives in NY; I picked Happier in Hollywood living in SB and Liz and Sara live in LA.) In any case, this is a delightful listen.
Moleskine monthly and weekly calendars – I love the pocket size of these planners and that the weekly’s page spread has dated grids on one side and a page on the other. (Sometimes there are things I want to accomplish in a week, but necessarily a specific day!)
The Great British Bake-Off – While home-capative during the Thomas Fire and I was reacquainted with my Netflix account and have fallen deeply in love with this show. It’s the perfect white noise and the creation of “puddings” has hypnotic qualities.
Prince Harry/Meghan Markle Royal Engagement – While you should never bind your happiness up in other people (because, ugh people are messy creatures), I am very looking forwarding to another Spring royal wedding.
FitBit Charge 2 + YMCA – For Christmas, one of my relatives very generously gifted me and my younger sister FitBit fitness trackers. Then, the YMCA ran a special with a discounted January membership rate plus waiving the joiner’s fee on their open house day. Done and done! I had been eyeing both purchases for a while, but couldn’t commit to the hefty price of either. (wtf, joiner’s fee?) This combination is a great start to 2018.
