End of Year Thoughts: 2019 Edition

How is it almost Christmas?! This last month went by in a blur… a merry, happy blur… but still a blur. I’m looking forward to relaxing, eating, and Christmas-ing with family this week. But before I do that, here are some end of year tidbits!

  • Some amazing books were released in the later months of the year and deserve a mention (see my favorite books of the year from a few weeks past). The Starless Sea (meta as hell and won’t be everyone’s cup of tea but if you love stories… gosh, what a love letter to it all… I sank into the pages and it was like a cup of hot tea on a cold night). And Maggie Stiefvater’s new book, Call Down The Hawk (an extension of The Raven Cycle series, in a way, which I loved).
  • I’ve been loving these cookie recipes (especially the white chocolate miso one). I plan on making a version with dark chocolate and peppermint bits for Christmas Eve!
  • Cold where you are? I live in Woolly Threads and this Abercrombie Soft AF shirt. They’re also fairly easy to find gently used on Poshmark!
  • No fireplace? Here are my favorite virtual fireplaces: one with a dog and a regular fire with some nice crackling sounds.
  • And some cool eco-friendly finds from this year!
1. Blueland Refillable Cleaners 2. Myro Refillable Deodorant (I get mine at Target and particularly love the scents Chill Wave, Big Dipper, and Cabin No. 5.) 3. Simple Compostable Wipes (if you gotta have wipes)
