Catching Up With Cori : August 2016

August 12, 2016

It’s like Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Except my lips and butt aren’t that big and I’ve never made a sex tape.

I figure this is a good way to fill y’all in on the little things going on from day to day.

So currently I am:

Reading Dr. Sleep by Stephen King. I finished The Shining last week and I didn’t even realize he wrote a sequel! The Shining was actually only the 2nd Stephen King novel I’ve ever read! Not really sure what I’ve been doing for 28 years. I’m eager to see the progression of the characters, especially because the books were published 36 years apart.

Rainy days were made for Stephen King. 

Listening to Lake Street Dive. I’m not sure what to call their type of music. It’s like a combo of jazz, a little motown, and a whole lot of soul. It just makes me so happy. I’ve been listening to their “Bad Self Portraits” album on repeat for weeks now. It’s that kind of music you sing at the top of your lungs while snapping your fingers and ignoring the looks from people who can hear how bad you sound. (Seriously…. It’s bad.)

Wearing my all time favorite sweatshirt EVER. It’s made by an awesome human named Tiffany who is the owner and kick ass artist behind BALM. Besides this sweatshirt, I also own 5 of her shirts. They are THE most comfortable shirts. 100%. End of story. Do yourself a favor and go check out her stuff, maybe even follow her on Instagram. You know, if you like funny shirts and pretty babes in your Insta feed (who doesn’t?).

Making jewelry. Lots and lots of jewelry. For those of you who don’t know, I actually have an Etsy shop called Max + Scarlett where I sell handmade jewelry. I’ve signed up for a local art show in September and I am very behind on inventory! But it’s totally ok. I’m just going to be a little jewelry factory for the next few weeks. NBD.

In my best infomercial voice “but wait! There’s more!”

Craving Taco Bell. My husband and I have set out on this new healthy living quest. I feel like I’m going to turn into kale I eat it so much. And don’t get me wrong, it feels AMAZING. But sometimes my brain decides to be like “remember Taco Bell?” and then it’s all I think about.

Fun fact: Corey told me he loved me for the first time in the Taco Bell drive through. Does it get more perfect? Nah.

Loving HAIR RINGS! Like why have I never thought of this before. I am currently working on a DIY hair ring post because they are super easy to make!! Follow me on Instagram to find out when that post goes live!
