Hello and welcome to Likes & Favorites: Quarantine Edition. For those of you who are new around here, Likes & Favorites is a category of Ampersand where I round up all the things I’m liking (and, you guessed it, favoriting). You can find all my Likes & Favorites from over the years right here.
It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these so it’s long overdue. I’m here to make your quarantine easier/more enjoyable with the roundup of some of my favorite things below. Every item on this list I personally love and have recommended to people (multiple times). Enjoy~
HELLO IT’S BEEN A WHILE. Yes, I did not post the entire month of August (I’m sorry!!) I have a relatively good reason–my life got HECTIC. Maybe even more than hectic, it was basically pure chaos. Between moving into the city, starting another semester of grad school, friend stuff, family stuff, personal stuff…I barely had time to breathe. But WE’RE BACK & Ampersand is ready for all things fall & fun ~
The thing about chaos or a hectic time in your life is that you have to embrace it. If you try to fight it, you’ll drown. You gotta just keep moving, keep flowing & know that the chaos will (eventually) subside and you’ll be smooth sailing. Likes & Favorites this week is all about the things that have helped me embrace/survive this chaotic season of my life. Read on.
Hello, hello, hello. It has been a HOT minute since I’ve done a Likes & Favorites. (I just checked. It was back in FEBRUARY). I guess I just got caught up in wrapping up my first year of grad school, Villanova winning (another ;)) National Championship & the start of summer aka the start of all things happy/fun. But I’ve got some stuff to share! So keeeeep on reading for what I’m liking & favoriting at the start of this summer.
