Welcome to a very special round of My Favorite Things, a monthly blog linkup for all the things you love! This month’s linkup is guest hosted by one of our regular participants, Tara! Thank you very much for helping out while Eirene and I sort our lives. Head to her host entry to submit your faves!
Here are my faves for the last month! It’s not a long list because I was still on the Mad Men train (which I already finished!) and I had a lot on my plate this month. I don’t see it easing up anytime soon.
I’ve had a Snapchat account for a long time, but I didn’t start using it until a few weeks ago. It’s a lot of fun and a great way to share pictures without the pressure of perfect editing. I used Snapchat to share my Wantable and Sparkle Box unboxings, my hair dye process, and whatever I’m up to in general. I also like seeing other people’s Snapchat Stories. Let’s be friends! I’m raiscake.
RuPaul’s Drag Race
I watched RuPaul’s Drag Race to kinda cleanse my palette from Mad Men’s drama. I watched season 5 for hot mess Alyssa Edwards and the perfect queen Jinkx Monsoon. And of course, RuPaul remains flaw-free and ethereal. All the queens do their makeup perfectly! Please teach me your ways.
Here’s a super useful app if you have a desk job and look at the computer screen all day like me. Awareness tracks your time on the computer and plays a sound every hour to remind you to take a break.
I have mine set to two-minute breaks every hour so I can stretch and rest my eyes. It’s really helpful not only physically but mentally. Sometimes I get stuck on an issue, and I get the break signal so I have to get up. A few minutes later, I look at the problem with fresher eyes and I’m able to approach it better. Although sometimes, it does bother me when I’m in the zone. But I take the break anyway because it’s for my long-term health.
Best of all, it’s available both on Mac and Windows!
Those are my favorites this month! Check out the rules (more like guidelines) below and tell us what you’ve been loving.
Write an entry about your favorite things.
They can be anything — books, movies, gadgets, websites, food, whatever you’re feeling this month. There is no limit either. You can have just one favorite thing or twenty!
