April-What I’m into

Or rather what I was into in April. 🙂 I always plan to participate in this link up,  but I forget about it or lose track of time and just scrap the idea all together. Not this time! I am linking up for Leigh Kramer’s What I’m Into prompt

Reading– I only read two books in March. Actually if I’ve being honest, I started both of these in March, but finished them in April. Still counts!

I have been in love with Taraji Henson forever. I don’t watch Empire(it’s on my list), but I’ve watched her in so many tv/movies and have fallen in love with her personality from following her on social media. Her memoir, Around the Way Girl does not disappoint. It’s in her voice so it’s hilaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarious, but also does a very good job of telling her life’s story. I gave it 5 stars on Goodreads.
The second book I read was “I’m Judging you” by comedian/activist/blogger Luvvie Ajayi. I love her blog and enjoy her on social media, but I wasn’t a big fan of the book. It should’ve been a short read, but I could barely get into it. It started off strong and just petered out. I was hoping for a collection of essays that would make me laugh and give me something to think about, but it just fell flat on everything. It wasn’t a good book or a bad book. Just meh.

Watching– I recently reinstated my Funimation account. Funimation is like Netflix for anime and man have I got my money’s worth. I watched a lot last month but my favorites were Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid  and Interviews with Monster Girls.The latter being my favorite. It’s about monster girls trying  in a normal world trying to navigate high school life. It’s super cute!

Listening -KENDRICK LAMAR-DAMN!

End of category! That album is so damn good. I don’t have to skip a track. The entire album is great. I’m not even tired of Humble which has been playing EVERYWHERE!

Oot and aboot – I participated in a fashion show. The theme was Evolution of Fashion and I was privileged enough to have my vintage clothing on the runway. It was a great experience which I will blog about soon. I also got a new job! I’m a shop girl at the cutest shop in downtown Memphis.

Creating-NOTHING! Which I should definitely be doing. I did see a cute tutorial for mini pot planters on A Beautiful Mess.

Daydreaming-about leaving the city for a getaway! Lots of things have been getting in the way of that. But I am dreaming of escaping for a little bit and exploring a new city.

And a new car. Mine is on the fritz.  😦

So glad I posted in time to participate in this prompt. Check out what other bloggers were up to in April here!

If my blog was an outfit…

“If my blog was an outfit…” is a fun linkup hosted by Hairspray and High Heels and A Dose of Paige. I’m not a fashion blogger at all! I didn’t even have Polyvore before this linkup, but it looked so fun, I just had to participate. Here’s what my blog would wear if it were an outfit!

If my blog was an outfit...
My blog is very casual so of course she would be  in boyfriend style jeans and Toms.  Lots of color to represent her randomness. She would wear a Sailor Neptune shirt as a shout out to her favorite fandom and a huge Tokidoki tote for carrying around her 3DS for gaming, notebooks and a travel guide for planning her next adventure, and snacks. Because SNACKS!

Weekly Wishes 2

 

I was mildly successful with my goals from last week.

1-I managed to stay away from those morning runs to Burger King by preparing a to-go cup of coffee and a banana for the commute to work. I didn’t make it to the gym as much as I wanted to, but I did make it once! Which is a step!

2.The only thing I picked up to read last week was the latest issue of Saga. So, the goal of reading more goes back on the list.

3. The baby blanket isn’t complete! In fact, it may be ruined? I must’ve dropped a dozen or so  stitches somewhere because halfway through the blanket, it starts shrinking!

I may just scrap the entire project and send them a store bought gift OR I may rip out the the rows that are a bit wonky and continue. *shrug* Who knows!

4. I updated Joy’s Vintage closet. Added couple of new pieces, more precise measurements, and a couple of new photos on some of the items. If you’re into vintage fashion, check it out! Subscribers (via bloglovin) and friends of the blog always get 15% off with the code-SOPHIEROCIOUS.

My goals for the next couple of weeks are to continue working out, eating better, reading more, and to get more organized…with EVERYTHING!

Weekly Wishes

Happy Monday! Happy Fall!

I hope everyone had a lovely weekend! Last week was super exhausting for me, so my weekend plans were to rest! I slept in until noon on Saturday and spent the day cleaning and catching up on laundry. Sunday was spent playing GTA V and late Sunday afternoon I got the brilliant idea to put Marley Twists in my hair. Yes, I know I just took my braids down and yes, I know it takes hours upon hours to complete Marley Twists–None of that seemed to be an issue to me yesterday. And that is why I am sitting here at work on Monday with 3/4 of my hair twisted and 1/4 of it in a…well, it’s just a poof!

Anywho, today I’m introducing something new to Sophierocious. A lot of bloggers I follow participate in Weekly Wishes. A motivating weekly linkup created by The Nectar Collective.

The rules:

1. Share your posts about your goals, challenges, or wishes for the week, month, year, decade, whatever! Entries completely unrelated to the theme or linked to your homepage will be deleted. 

2. Link back to this site so others can get their goal-setting on, too! You can use the button below if you’d like! *I heard some people had problems with the button last week but it is now fixed. 🙂

I’m a big fan of reading other blogger’s Weekly Wishes, but have yet to participate in it myself. Until now. I don’t promise to do this every week, but I will do it every now and again.

Diet/Exercise

My mom gave me her guest membership card to Planet Fitness. I’ve had it for 2 weeks and have gone to the gym a total of 0 times! Definitely going to try to visit at least 3 times before next Monday. Oh, and I will not buy french toast sticks from Burger King this week. They are so convenient when I’m rushing to work on weekday mornings, but hey, so is a banana!

Read

Instead of picking up my controller to play GTA V on a free evening this week, I’ll pick up my Kindle and spend some time reading. I have become an e-book hoarder. Buying books when they’re on sale, but never finding the time to read them.

Crafty

I want to finish the baby blanket I’ve been knitting  for over a month!

Etsy

I need to update Joy’s Vintage Closet with new items and update the pictures! Long overdue!

What are your goals for the week?!

first!

Even though this is my first post on WordPress, I’m not new to blogging. I’ve been doing it for 5 years. Started off at Star320 for a few years. Then moved on to SimplySophia, SophiaWrites, and finally at Lophy! I decided to move to WordPress because I’m always hearing awesome things about it. So, yah…welcome to my blog. Please leave comments! check out my links and most importantly, COMEBACK!
