life update: end of july
WHAT'S BEEN GOING ON:
I'm FINALLY here. Here meaning Atlanta. It's been a long month of moving, and settling in, but I really do love it. Atlanta has some bomb food and I'm working on a major ATL food post. I LOVE my job, my apartment is adorable (home tour coming soon, but for now check out "the bedding you need in your life"), and the shopping is good too (thank goodness). Overall, things are very exciting and I'm really happy I decided to move. Only thing I'm not too happy about is the horrifying traffic....it's maybe the same or even worse as LA so that's great. BUT: I also love being only an hour away from my family, because I'm not quite sure how I was 3,000 miles apart for an entire year...
WHAT I'M WATCHING:
I just saw Mamma Mia Here We Go Again and it was AMAZING. Seriously, one of the best movies of the summer and I could watch the ending 100000x. I will be 100% going back to watch it soon. I've barely watched television this month (except Grey's, I'm on Season 14 now). Once I finish Grey's I don't know what I'm going to do with my life....I need a new show ASAP. Luckily, the Kardashians comes back on August 5th :)
WHAT I'M READING:
Something in the Water by Catherine Steadman started off slow, but the ending was crazy. I honestly got freaked out reading it. I am a huge Emily Giffin fan and really enjoyed All I Ever Wanted too. I have a list of books waiting to be read soon! I'm about to start In Bloom by Katie Delahanty and can't wait to read it!
WHAT I'M LISTENING TO:
I've been listening to literally the most random things this month and now I need new music. I just put my entire playlist on shuffle and jam out to oldies. However, I do love Drake's new album Scorpion. I also started a couple murder podcasts and not sure where they've been my entire life. My favorites right now are Casefile and My Favorite Murder. SO good.
BEST NEW PURCHASES:
My post "Amazon purchases I may or may not need" has a ton of amazing products/things/randoms that you might actually need/find useful. I'm also obsessed with the leopard pants from Urban Outfitters. I also love these gorgeous silk pajamas from In Bloom. They are glamorous and perfect. My favorite purchase this month were these Jeffrey Campbell platform boot/sneakers. They are SOOOO good.
Atlanta has some amazing restaurants and I'm sooo happy about that. I'm working on a massive food guide blog post but for now here are a few favorites: Cooks and Soldiers, Flower Child and Kale Me Crazy (the Recovery smoothie is LIFE). I've eaten more places in ATL in just a couple weeks that I ever did in LA...my stomach isn't happy but it is.
