What I've Been Loving This Month: August Edition
What i’ve been…
August 2018 Edition
Read Time: 4 minutes
Okay, how is it the end of August already? Like I promise you, it was the beginning of summer 2 days ago. I never realized how fast time goes by, especially when you're working a 9 to 5 (Lord, help me).
Either way, as August comes to a close I wanted to share with you a fun curated lists of all my faves of the month.
I got the idea from one of my favorite blogger-besties! She did a post titled "What I've Been..." where she outlined all of the things she's been obsessed with lately and it was such a fun post, I definitely knew I had to do one myself.
So in the short amount time that you've missed me, let's figure out what your corporate queen has been up to in the past month.
WHAT I’VE BEEN: AUGUST 2018 EDITION
WHAT I'VE BEEN READING...
imanbubblegum - of course. One of my favorite bloggers in the game, and i'm not just saying that because I love her as a person (which I do). She has an incredible voice, and her posts have so much personality. I normally feel everything she's reading x10 and she does a great job of giving you a little bit of everything from fashion to just real-life posts.
Not Your Standard - I am living and dying for this girl's website aesthetic. Like it is so beautiful I could get lost in it. I've only read a few pieces of her content and I'm not even angry bc I'm just so mesmerized by the style of her blog. A definite must-see, and make sure go check it out on your desktop.
CarrieBradshawLied.com - Okay, I recently found out about her like 6 hours ago and already obsessed but this is a corporate queen OG. She definitely understands the difficult work-life balance of starting and staying consistent with a blog while focusing and slaying your corporate job (with corporate goals). She started her blog in 2010 as a fun style outlet while she worked her corporate job in marketing (!) and finally transitioned to working on her blog full time 6 years later. Her style is simple and feminine with great content. Yes girl, x10.
WHAT I'VE BEEN PINNING...
Cozy blankets, comfy beds, white decor. Currently ob-sessed with bedroom decor. Which is so ironic because I still don't even have a bed. Seriously, I've been sleeping on my floor for the past 3 weeks (and I'm not even ashamed). Happy pinning!
WHO I'VE BEEN STALKING...
I actually have no idea how I stumbled unto her page. But i'm so glad I did. Like, I've never followed someone so quickly. Especially that cute front door rug (like i'm actually dying). If I could be trapped on an instagram page for all of time, it would be hers.
I found this page through Pinterest and I didn't even realize she's a Youtuber as well! I actually am obsessed with her name and her @hellooctoberathome page which is equally as fabulous.
Okay this is more than an Aug fave but I just had to include. I think I found her in July(?) and then met her at the Create & Cultivate blog-fest in real life which was so totally awesome! She's a sweetheart in real life and posts killer content like every second so a definite stalk.
WHAT I'VE BEEN WATCHING...
- The Spy That Dumped Me - 10/10 very reccommend
- Ant Man and the Wasp
- The Bold Type - okay this is an absolutely amazing and greatly underrated show. A def must-watch, I mean it.
WHAT I'VE BEEN BINGING...
- TV Show: Insatiable
WHAT I'VE BEEN LISTENING TO...
- Yeba x Kiss Daniel (literally on repeat)
- Transformation Church with Pastor Michael Todd (life-changing)
- The Goal Digger Podcast with Jenna Kutcher (she had a great blogging podcast, a must-listen)
WHAT I'VE BEEN WORKING ON...
- Not pressing the snooze button
- Working out at 3x a week (this has been a tremendous fail, ill just be the first person to let you know that.)
- Instead of worrying, pray.
Thanks for reading bumble-bees, and I hope you're having a fabulous week.
Until next time (which will be soon - working on my consistency here),
-The Corporate Queen
Philippians 4:6 - 7
6 Don’t worry about anything, but pray and ask God for everything you need, always giving thanks for what you have. 7 And because you belong to Christ Jesus, God’s peace will stand guard over all your thoughts and feelings. His peace can do this far better than our human minds.
