The Weekly Recap + Links and Sales I’m Loving

Sunday’s are my favorite day of the week again – since the start of this year has been a little difficult for me in many aspects of my life, I’ve been looking forward to the weekends more than ever.

So if you’ve been having a rough month at all lately, just know that you’re not alone!

I think I can smell coffee in my sleep sometimes, that’s how much I appreciate a good cup! Personally, I make mine with a shot of espresso, 1/2 cup boiling water, two creamers and a sugar – if it sounds intense, that’s because it is! Making my morning coffee (or coffees) is the best part of waking up for me and it’s about to get a little bit better!

Is it just me or does Valentine’s Day come earlier and earlier every year? I feel like Target has had heart shaped decor out since the moment New Years Eve merch got pulled from the shelves!

If you knew me five years ago, you would not recognize me and my cleaning habits! I used to be one of those people who lived in chaos and claimed there was a method to the madness – but ever since I started living on my own, my entire cleaning philosophy has changed!
