Things I'm Loving

1. Target mugs

I've been good about not buying mugs lately. I got through these weird spending sprees where I'll buy approximately five mugs that I most certainly do not need because, well, I am one person. Why do I need a dozen mugs? I do my dishes, I only drink one cup of coffee and one cup of tea a day. I don't need that many mugs and yet here I am, hoarding mugs in my cupboard, my desk, anywhere I can store them safely. Naturally, I bought two new mugs at Target the other day. I couldn't help it. They were so me. I mean, one has the word "totes" on it and the other...come on. It's me in a mug. They fit the perfect amount of coffee, they're super smooth, the colors are fun. What more could you ask for in a mug?

2. Positivity tumblr

Last Tuesday, I had a day off. My days off usually produce a weird brain child because I'm just so excited that I have free time that my imagination sort of runs wild. That Tuesday, I spent the day dancing around my apartment, hula-hooping my life away. It was then that I realized I wanted to start a positivity Tumblr. So, that's what I did. I got the URL positivebinch, made my icon a pug and started to queue up some overly positive and pretty graphics. That's essentially what it is. It's a home to pretty graphics with little sayings, doodles, and some quotes all in one place. I call it my happy place. I take a few minutes every day to scroll through other positivity blogs to find content to post and I just end up in a great mood. I hope it can become your happy place, too.


3. Farmers Market

I've been working at the Tremont Farmers Market every other week for, essentially, the entire summer. I work in the same mobile boutique that I started at in February of 2015 and one of the events that I have the pleasure of working multiple times is this farmers market. I love it! I think that it's incredibly fun and I love to see small businesses get together for something like this. However, my silly self hadn't thought to bring cash with me, mostly because I never have cash on me. However, I had a few bills last time I was there and I had to bop around the stands. I got a quart of fresh peaches from a local farm that are absolutely delicious. Truthfully, I ate three as soon as I got home and I'm rationing my last two because I could easily devour them in seconds. It was my second time getting a loaf of bread from Breadheads Breadery. I got a cinnamon raisin loaf my first time a few weeks ago and it was a game changer. I went back to get another loaf on Tuesday and...well, I nearly lost it. They had a PEANUT BUTTER BREAD WITH CHOCOLATE CHIPS. What? LIKE WHAT? All I have to say about that is that there is less than half of the loaf left and I have not shared with anyone yet. It's too good to share and I don't know what I'm going to do when I stop working the market...? In conclusion: check out if your city has a local farmers market. It's a great place to meet some really cool business owners and snag some really delicious local food.

4. The Vaccines

If I haven't mentioned The Vaccines on my blog before, I've at least included them in my monthly playlists. They're an English band (shocker, I clearly don't have a soft spot for those...) that formed in 2010, which makes me a little mad that it took me until 2015 to find them ("Teenage Icon" was like, my song in summer 2015). This type of music has become my favorite of the summer, I think. It's that like upbeat indie rock, sort of Catfish and the Bottlemen, The Wombats, Little Comets style. The kind that makes me want to wear my mirrored cat eye sunglasses and walk around with a pout on my lips or drive with the windows down looking like I just don't give a crap about the world around me. Just give me a leather jacket, a red lipstick and a pair of cool moto booties and I'm all set.
