1. I’m officially in loooove with the Trader Joe’s coconut cold brew! In fact, it’s like 11:30 at night right now and I wish I could have some. On another note, the basil, burrata and sweet corn ravioli I got from TJ’s was super… gross. I was so unimpressed. Ugh. Need to recreate it and make it better!
2. This raspberry arugula salad is basically the prettiest thing I’ve ever seem.
3. All of a sudden I really want to start burning fall candles. Ugh, hate myself. I don’t want it to be fall, but I want some apple cider in my kitchen like whoa.
4. Last week I tried one of sunscreen face mists and it was the worst decision of my life. Even though I closed my eyes and used one or two sprays, it ran into my eyes all day long and I was the most miserable person on earth. Have you tried one you love?
5. Okay I have a new show that I’m about to binge on: Younger! I never hear any of you talk about it sooo… have you watched it?! And yes, Eddie watches Game of Thrones but I just caaaan’t get into it. Except for Ed Sheeran’s part, bahaha. I watched with with him but… meh. Worst taste in the universe, right?
6. I’m curious: do you believe in writer’s block? I’ve read a lot of great things lately from popular authors who don’t believe in it. And based on myself, I don’t think I believe in it either. I know I procrastinate and get lazy and that keeps me from writing – generally not having enough discipline at times is what makes me “think” I have writer’s block, but it’s totally an excuse.
7. Yesterday I saw that the crying/laughing face (tears of joy) was the most popular emoji. It’s probably the one I use the most too. What is yours?!
8. Your response to our huge announcement yesterday was so incredible and made me so happy! THANK YOU so, so much! You make my life.

I LOVE younger! I’m totally hooked. Spread the word! Glad you’re loving it too!
Hello, younger! I have no guilt about how much I enjoy that show! sutton foster is a gem-she was on bunheads (also amazing and for 13 year olds). I desperately need someone to talk about Younger with. It’s the tv equivalent of beach chick lit.
Ugh, I’m with you on the sunscreen mist. I tried the oh-so-raved-about Setting Mist with sunscreen from Supergoop and hated it immediately. It was sticky and messy. Now I’m afraid to try different ones.
LOVE Younger! It’s smart and funny, great cast and storyline. It’s such a fun show :)
Yes, I also just started watching Younger! Episodes are only 20 minutes so I got through the first season pretty fast. I don’t LOVE it (it’s no Gilmore Girls or Parenthood) but it is a fun show, esp to watch while I do other things. I love the supergoop face mist–it’s a setting spray but it also has SPF in it and is intended to go over makeup. So much better than other sunscreens. To me, writer’s block = fear.
I didn’t think anyone else had been sucked into Younger but me. Glad to know I am not alone!! Need to get caught up on the current season though!!
I was excited to try the sweet corn and burrata raviolis, and I was really disappointed! I usually like all of TJ’s pastas but this one was not good.
Well that’s a bummer about TJs corn and burrata ravioli, since that was the dinner plan for tonight….
We didn’t mind it. If that makes you feel any better. I browned some butter and threw in some spinach and it was a quick dinner for 2. Maybe I have low standards.
Good to know! Browned butter makes everything taste good. :) I was planning on a similar preparation for our meal, so fingers crossed that we like it or our standards are equally as low. :P
I have been watching Younger since the very beginning, I live for Sutton Foster and Hilary Duff! Welcome to the club!!
I grabbed the TJ’s burrata ravioli after I saw your snap and it was…fine. I liked it, but it tasted like regular ravioli to me. Nothing super special!
This might totally remove the point of spray sunscreen, but when applying it to my face (or my husband’s face, or my white short-haired dog’s face, haha) I spray it into my hand and then rub it on the face. Seems to help with the running-from-the-forehead issue!
I LOVE younger and I can’t wait to hear what you think!
I just started Younger this weekend after my friend was raving about it. It’s super cute and easy to binge (which are 2 musts). Good choice!
Younger is amazing!! Everyone should get on that bandwagon! (My personal thought about why it’s not more popular is that it’s on TVLand – not a channel everyone has or even available through streaming services. After dropping cable earlier this month, I could only find it on Amazon and had to purchase the entire season – completely worth it!)
Younger is so so good rom the cast to the story! Also, as someone who is lazy sometimes about writing I totally agree about your thoughts on writer’s block. Would love to read the articles you mentioned about it!
Sunscreen face mist does sound like torture. I want to know what you think about Younger. I’ve been wanting to start it too. I mean, hello? Hillary Duff ?!

Younger is super fun! It’s easy to watch, witty, and the love interests are yum! Enjoy!
And congrats on your new venture!
Yes!!!! Younger is so good! I keep saying I need someone to discuss it with!
I just binged watched seasons 1-3 of Younger on Hulu. Can’t wait to hear your thoughts. Such a fun cast and I love watching life in the NYC publishing world.
I am obsessed with Younger!!! It’s so light and fun, and the men are oh so yummy!!! Can’t wait to hear what you think!
For me, the only thing I get that is close to writers block is when (like you said) I’m being lazy and just can’t focus, or occasionally I will write something and then come back to it later and just be like WHAT?! And that can happen a few times if I don’t actually know what I want to write but I know that for me it is because I need to make a decision or assert my opinion and I sometimes get concerned about that. That is my version of “writers block” but again it’s just a knuckle down and get on with it kind of thing. Anyway that’s a bit wordy, but it’s my experience as someone who relies on writing for my job!
I totally binged on Younger for one entire weekend! I can’t wait to see where the new season takes us! I can’t decide on which guy I want to see her end up with more!
I need a new show too. Younger is a good idea! I watched the first season and then lost track of it. I just finished Glow, which was awesome.
I’m totally with you on the fall issue. I so do not want summer to leave, but I want to wear burgundies and dark nail polish and burn apple candles. I actually just picked up one the other day called Honeycrisp Cider. It smells slightly fall-like while still being fresh. I’ll call it my seasonal transition candle. (Insert crying while laughing emoji)
Younger has been my favorite new show since it started!! I LOVE all of the characters!! The only negative is that it’s only 30 min long!
Younger is fabulous!!! And I am in the Gilmore Girls, Parenthood club !! ;0)
Younger is totally addictive! You will love it (even if it doesn’t do the best job of portraying the realities of the publishing industry–it’s still fun to watch!)
I can’t remember if I posted about the coconut coffee to you, but I knew you would love it. I am sad that it looks like it is a limited time product. I hate that TJ’s does that with amazing products. I am drinking it iced right now!
I’ve wanted to try that cold brew and that ravioli from TJ’s – bummer on the ravs! Yes make your own recipe please! :) Younger is soooo good and binge-worthy!
I started Younger and was super into it and then just totally forgot about it. I think I should start it up again!
So bummed to hear you didn’t like Game of Thrones. I’ve never seen it but it’s on our list – now I’m second guessing it? Also, Beautycounter’s stick sunscreen is fantastic if you don’t like applying a lotion. The face stick is the easiest thing to apply to my face AND my boys’ faces. I’ll leave the link for my name instead of my blog in case you’re interested!
Agreed on the TJ corn & burrata raviolis. We were pretty disappointed. We tried the lobster ones that shopping trip & we enjoyed them for a quick & cheap dinner add on. Nothing great, but a solid good. Also, I almost DIED when I saw you could buy burrata there!! I had asked you before where I could get it, because I was having trouble finding it, but never saw it there! Maybe I didn’t know what I was looking for before? We then made a version of your grilled artichoke burrata pizza which is so good!
Younger is AMAZING! You will not be disappointed! I rewatch all the seasons before each new season starts! I love, love, love that show.
Obsessed with Younger! Also, forget face mists. The best face sunscreen is Sun Bum’s face stick. I’m a swim teacher and this is the best thing out there. Not greasy, in fact you barely feel it’s on! It smells AMAZING and you can apply it to exactly where you need it. It’s a little more expensive but totally worth it!
( Nordstrom Rack had it on sale a couple weeks ago and if you do a little internet searching it can be cheaper too. Try jet.com. )
I love Younger!! It’s such a great show with short episodes that you can breeze through!
Love Younger! Nico Tortorella also has a podcast, he’s a gem! And i just started watching a new series on Freeform that i am obsessed with, it’s a total ‘chicklit’ type show called, The Bold Type.

Sweet Peas is AMAZING! Congratulations!! What an awesome idea and union of amazing people. YAY!
I feel you with the fall candles. I don’t even feel like summer has hardly started, and yet I’m wishing it away already. I want to stop myself from doing that, but I also just love fall. I am in FL, of course, so we always wish away summer. Lol. :)
I keep thinking about trying the TJ’s cold brews and probably pick them up and set them back down every single time I go, but I guess I should just do it.
Also, Younger is SO GOOD. It’s cute and sweet and I love it!
I watch Younger-I think you’ll like it! It’s not mind blowing but it’s solid
Totally binge watched Younger during my maternity leave this past winter and LOVED it…. completely sucked me in!
Love younger!! And game of thrones too 😉
LOVE Younger!!!!!! and GOT too ;)
Super sad because I have a package of basil, burrata and sweet corn ravioli in my fridge awaiting consumption. Damn, I was excited about that. Oh well. As for tv, check out Ozark. We’re 3 episodes in & it’s great so far!
