What I’m Loving in April 2018

Whenever I find something I love- a tv show, movie, song, beauty product, clothing piece, book, etc., I obsess over it! I make many new discoveries each month and I wanted to curate a mini list of what I’ve loved this month.

The Real
The talk show featuring Jeannie Mai, Tamera Mowry, Adrienne Bailon, and Loni Love is my newest tv favorite and I’ve been watching clips from the show as I do my homework/get ready/eat dinner/etc. I’ve loved The View for a while, but only because I want Joy Behar to be my godmother. The Real is fantastic because it features women of color with strong opinions discussing real life situations.

Making my bed
I went over a year without making my bed in the morning (I know so lazy and gross), but after I redecorated my room, I wanted to make my bed a cozy and pretty place to sleep at night. Even when everything else in my life is chaotic, I love how organized I feel when my bed is made. I’m making real adult strides here, guys.

Queer Eye
As soon as I watched the first episode of the Netflix series, I was hooked forever. Queer Eye is one of the funniest, most heartwarming shows I’ve ever seen and I only wish there were more episodes online! Each installment shows the Fab 5- Jonathan, Bobby, Karamo, Antoni, and Tan- making over a disheveled straight guy while simultaneously creating lasting friendships. I desperately want to nominate my dad for the show, not to be made over, but because he would definitely be best friends with each of the men!

I distanced myself from journaling this year, which was ironically, the time I needed writing most. Since my junior year in high school, I documented every important detail of my life from heartbreaks to what I wanted to buy loved ones for Christmas. I treasure my leather notebook more than any other material object and I recently found myself reaching for it more as I needed to collect my thoughts. Journaling is therapeutic and although I don’t always like reading back on the difficult parts of my life, it’s still important to get everything out!
