:: this week ::

Wearing: Homemade deodorant. At the encouragement of my sister, Ashley, and brothers, all of whom have been rocking it, I made the switch. Aluminum in my pores? No thanks! 

They gave me the recipe to mix 1/4 c. baking soda with 4 T coconut oil and it's working! I don't love smelling like a cookie, so I'm going to mess around with some essential oils. My brothers tell me they're working on a manly scent, so I'm sure I could make it smell more to my liking. 

Listening: To T. Swift's new song. Totally unsurprisingly: I love it.

Reading: The Highly Sensitive Person in Love. Yep - self help! I'm really into learning more about myself these days - not in a self-absorbed way, but just because I think the more you know about the way you operate, the better you can connect with others. Once I learned that I was highly sensitive a few years ago, I haven't been able to get enough info about it. 

Wanting: This dress in a very, very real way. Also pretty much everything from Anthro this season. They nailed it! 
(Don't worry - just taking selfies while shopping at Anthro. They had that super cute scarf AND free King of Pops for shoppers. They get me.)

 I hope you're having a great week!
