weekend reading

Weekend reading: short edition. I didn't see a ton on the web this week, but what I did see was good!

Let's just get into it.

Good foods, bad foods, and eating cookies at breakfast. I loved this post! Kylie is so relatable and has such an inclusive view of all foods, which I love. A peanut butter cookie and eggs DOES sound like a filling and satisfying breakfast. 

I'm thinking about dress sewing lately and I keep coming back to really similar ideas. This is one of them. This is the other. They're essentially the exact same, one is just sleeveless. Perhaps this will be a thing soon. I have had this pattern on my mind and have seen sleeved and sleeveless iterations of it on instagram, sooooo I feel like this is just an inevitability in my life!

Yesterday I went to Target to pick up a few toiletries and a birthday gift for a friend. I ended up getting distracted by a new beauty brand they are carrying and spent at least 5 minutes smelling all the perfumes. I really liked this Brainiac scent and this Rustic Woods scent. I sprayed the Brainiac on and I could still smell it when I went to bed! Might have to add these to my collection soon. I am super picky about perfumes, so when I find one I like it is rare!

Dramatically switching gears here: let's talk about student loans. Earlier this month I had to send in an application for my income-based repayment plan to be renewed and let's just say it ended in tears. I find my student loan debt to be completely overwhelming and guilt-filled. It is a huge number and I often wonder if I will ever be able to pay it off. I am so grateful for my education and everything it has allowed me to do, but the debt it comes with is crippling and terrifying. I read this article this week and dreamed of being debt free. Maybe one day!

And just so we don't end on that depressing note, Last Week Tonight with John Oliver is back tonight! I missed eating breakfast on Monday mornings while I watched his show. I'm happy I'll get to be back in that routine!

I hope you all enjoy your Sunday!
