Around Here: November 2019
November 25, 2019
Hello, friends! Here's a little bit about life right now:
Maternity leggings plus anything in my closet that will still fit me.
The good news is that I've always liked flowy clothing and empire waists, so I have a surprising amount of non-maternity tops that work for maternity!
On a side note, this pregnancy has brought about a surprising body image depression. Considering the fact that I was much heavier in my 20s than I am now, nine months pregnant, you'd think I'd be fine with the weight gain and the body changes. But it has been a real struggle. I work every day to maintain a positive attitude about it and I have a wonderful mother and partner who are always encouraging, but the changes are tough to take.
I just bought a bath mat from my own Society 6 Shop...
...to match the rug I already put in the bathroom. The design is based on this table I painted a few years ago:
I have a book on baby sign language that I'm starting, but mostly I've been listening to podcasts. Current faves are: Only a Game, Stuff You Should Know, and the Dragnet podcast.
Current art crush?
Sarah Shoot or sarahshootmixed on instagram. She's a jewelry artist with a very funky and colorful style. I love that she sells mixed pairs of earrings (i.e. both earrings are not the same). Check out her work:
In case anyone is wondering what to get me -- or themselves -- for Christmas, I'll leave a link to her etsy shop page. ;)
So, there you have it! That's the scoop on life around here at the moment.
Thanks for stopping by!
