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!




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!


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!
