I’ve been wanting to do a series like this for FOREVER and I’ve finally gotten around to making it happen. I’m excited to update you monthly with things I’ve been loving lately and I’d love to hear some of the things you’ve been loving lately too. While I will include some physical products in these roundups, I want to be intentional about the majority of them being resources or content to consume. I’m always working on buying less stuff and I’m sure many of you can relate!

A Beautiful Mess Podcast
As a long time fan of the A Beautiful Mess blog and podcast listener, I was thrilled when Elsie and Emma announced their podcast. It has been a treat getting to learn more about each of them and they have such wonderful advice for homemaking and being women in business. Listen to the podcast here

Facebook Marketplace and Buy/Sell/Trade Pages
I’ve been a big fan of shopping on Facebook for awhile now, but it has come especially handy in the baby prep process! I’ve gotten several higher dollar baby items that I don’t necessarily expect to get at showers off of Facebook and it’s already saved me SO much money. I’ve also gotten in the habit of trying to find a secondhand option on Facebook before making any home decor or clothing purchases, you’d be surprised by the selection of name brand products! It’s also been a wonderful option for finding maternity clothes.

My Pink Timberland Boots
I’ve been wanting to get some quality boots that are comfy, waterproof, and will last me a long time. I’m sure it comes as no surprise that I wanted a color option and these Women’s Nellie Waterproof Chukka Boots were the best option I could find to meet my budget and quality expectations. Definitely recommend these cute pink shoes! 

The Immigration Coalition
When you don’t identify with either political party, it can feel like you’re in a difficult and complicated place. I’ve been so encouraged by The Immigration Coalition Instagram account as their posts are right in line with my beliefs and views. 

HBO Chernobyl Series
(Note: This series is obviously based on a catastrophic event and contains some graphic content)
This was one of the series we watched in 2020 and WOW! This limited release tv series was extremely well done and opened my eyes to what a tragic event this truly was. It reminded me of the danger of pride and how it can lead to the harm of so many people.

The Archer by Alexandra Savior
This is my favorite album of 2020 (as of January 28th – haha)! I’ve definitely had this album on repeat because it has great vibes and has fit the mood of our overcast weather we’ve had lately.

What have you been loving this January?
