Catching Up with Carrie #7 | 6/12/16


Favorite Song: Cheap Thrills – Sia
Currently Watching: Game of Thrones
Favorite Tea: Don’t have one right now. I’m crushed!
Favorite Food: Raspberries. Always. Now that they’re in season, I’m in heaven.
App: Pinterest. I found this super delicious recipe for a strawberry cheesecake salad that I made for Memorial Day.
Weather: Warm and sunny. Yay! We’ve had some dreary weather lately, but the sun is starting to shine!
Mood: Happy, but warm. We reached 90 degrees this weekend!
Obsession: MONQ. It’s an aromatherapy device that allows you to inhale the essential oils. I’m still doing research, but so far it sounds legit.

In Case You Missed It

Blog News

  • First and foremost, the blog hit 100 followers last week! Thank you to everyone who’s taken the time to comment, like, read, and follow my blog. You have no idea how much it means to me.
  • Incredibly random, but I figured out how to stop pingbacks to my posts whenever I link something in other posts.
  • Twitter is continuing to grow, which is equally as exciting. I love interacting! 🙂

I’ve been absent on twitter, so I’m being a bit selfish this week. Anissa at FairyLoot retweeted my tweet about my unboxing post. *Cue fangirling* I love when I get to interact not only with fellow bloggers, but the people who put so much love into their subscriptions boxes (this has happened with Muse Monthly and Fantasy & Sci-Fi Books too!)

Personal News

  • I started my library classes last week, and so far I’m loving it!
    • One of my assignments was to find a librarian that I can stay in contact with over the course of the class (and most likely program).
    • I found one, and he’s awesome. I think he’s just as excited to work with me as I am to work with him.
  • I love having three day weekends. It gives me more time to binge watch Game of Thrones. 😉
  • My friend and I have made plans to go to a bar in the city called Headquarters Beercade. I’ve never been there, and have been bugging her to go. Ironically, her brother wanted to go for his birthday, so they invited me to tag along (this is in’t until July though).
  • I’ve started meditating and I’ve found that it helps to keep me calm and grounded. I can get a little uptight/stressed, so it’s nice to have a way to help me relieve that, that isn’t sleeping.

What’s new with you guys? Let me know!

    I’ve been surfing online more than 3 hours today, but I never
    discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours.

    It’s beautiful value sufficient for me. In my opinion, if all web owners and bloggers
    made just right content material as you did, the web will probably be much more useful than ever before.
