Currently Loving April 2019

AHHHHH April….Spring, but in terms of the school year, feels like almost Summer. From April to June, it feels like a sprint to the finish line of the year: so much going on with recitals, meetings, wrapping it up. Often times, I forget how to breathe during this time. So, I need to remember to be in the present and here is what I am currently loving!


1. Eat Clean, Play Dirty Cookbook


If I eat like the authors do I become beautiful like them????


One of my besties gifted me this cookbook last week and I cannot wait to make all of the recipes, which are uber healthy, vegan, plant based. A great way to start off the Spring – Summer in a healthy detox way. I especially want to try the breakfast recipes and the salad dressings — they all look so good.


2. Old Town Road


There are two versions of this song out right now in the top 40 hits. I personally like the original better…..but both are extremely catchy.


The new viral song, Old Town Road, has a great beat and sticks to your mind for days on end. There was even an article in the NYTimes about it. I love listening to it when I run (and even heard it blaring on the streets in Boston when I ran the marathon) and it instantly makes me happy.


3. Huge in France


European sense of humor…


Light and entertaining, this new series on netflix is easy to watch and funny.


4. Natori Feathers Bra


I am not sure how I lived without this bra — I wear it EVERY SINGLE DAY and have multiple in every color. It is worth getting multiples of this bra.


I know, I know, HOW many times do I have to mention this bra? But I do because it is *that* good. So, trust me. Get the bra, get with the program, and feel oh so happy. I promise you this bra is the best in the world. And it is pretty, inexpensive, very comfortable, and trustworthy.


5. The Unwinding of the Miracle


I first read the work of this author on her personal blog where she wrote about her illness and life. So powerful.


A tear jerker book, but great to put everything in perspective. The book is also beautifully written. A must read.



So what are you loving now that that we are in a new season (and new month)? Do share!

  1. You always seem to post what I need. I’ve been looking around for more information on clean eating. So exciting!

  2. I know what you mean about that Feathers Bra. It has become a staple in my wardrobe.

  3. The remix of “Old Town Road” is so funny to me. Never saw that coming.
