Well Feb it’s been a blast Thanks to baseball games, beers and buddies! Thanks to summer, rashies and big smiles! Thanks to great friends, collaborations and the inspiring women who shape my world Thanks to hunky Boyfriends, musical dates and the sweetest fun quest for roses! Thanks to family birthday adventures, holograms and a super cute fun family! Thanks to chicken parmies bigger than my head, the new queer eye and braces… for making ice cream almost an everyday treat instead of sometime treat! #peaceout #pinkparrimonthlyreview
Every month for the last 3 years I have done a #pinkparrimonthly review on Instagram (see pic and caption above). My monthly review consists of a collage made with photos from the previous month that bring me the most joy and a little post with thanks to all of the great moments and feelings and people in my life!
This little habit is actually more about gratitude than it is about actually reviewing what happened during the month, I spend a good 10-15 min reviewing what fun things I have done the past month and what made my month great! This little ritual has always made me feel good and reminds me of all of the amazing little moments in my life. Now I am starting this blog, I thought it may be cool to add another monthly tradition, this one more about sharing, what I have spent my time on for the month! What am I reading, watching, listening to, experimenting with and who am I insta crushing on right now!
So we may as well start with Feb!
The reason I read this book was a friend had told me about the TV show and said it was great! Now I’m the type of person that just must read the book first, so I did… And then I also watched the TV show! I think the part that creeped me out and interested me the most was Margaret Atwood’s statement about the book; “I delayed writing [The Handmaid’s Tale] for about three years after I got the idea because I felt it was too crazy, then two things happened. I started noticing that a lot of the things I thought I was more or less making up were now happening, and indeed more of them have happened since the publication of the book.”
So everyone who follows me on Facebook already knows I binged watched the new Queer eye on Netflix! It was gorgeous! I cried I laughed and I just wanted those gorgeous men to come to my house… Like now! My fave is…. all of them!! YAAASSS GURL! If you haven’t watched it yet… Go what are you waiting for!! Oh wait, read the rest of this post first though… Please…
I only started listening to The Slow Home Podcast in January, even though it actually started in 2015! Yes… I was a little slow to the trend (see what I did there). Ok enough bad puns… I really love the idea of exploring the slow home idea further and finding my own way to quit the “keeping up with Joneses” as Brooke from the podcast would say! I suggest checking it out, I have a feeling these pods may inspire a few blog posts to come! Thanks Brooke!
Ok… so I have to admit that’s not my adorable habit tracker in the picture… mine is a little more messy at this stage… but hey! I’m only new at this whole habit tracking thing! I have been habit tracking since January, it can be a little tedious, but may be worth it, I think I will continue for a few more months to see.
Ok so I have been online crushing on Gala Darling for years! But this blog is new baby! So I thought who best to be my first blog crush announcement! Ok so firstly when I say crush, I mean I admire the fuck out of her! She is a kick ass babe who works hard for what she wants and doesn’t let anyone stand in her way (especially herself!) I was lucky enough to actually listen to her speak in person in Feb and even meet her briefly. She was as kick ass as expected and incredibly sweet.
So there you have it! My first Monthly Review post for the blog!
