Weekend Reading

Weekend Reading

It’s Friday. Another week has gone by, and is there really only two weeks until classes go back? I feel like I had two good months of holidays but they’ve disappeared in a matter of moments and I don’t really know what day of the week it is, let alone what month.

Is anyone else on the same bandwagon?

Is 2017 disappearing so fast for you?

Can you barely keep up?

Because, same.

I don’t really know how to slow down time, if one can even accomplish a feat like that, but I suppose I might spend the weekend Googling ways to spend more time in the moment. Or perhaps I should just focus on being in the moment, and not researching ways on how to do so.

Do you have any tips?

I have no idea what I’m doing, as you can probably tell.

Anyway, whether your poison is a bottle of wine or a cat-shaped mug full of chai tea (+ honey plz), I’ve compiled the perfect list of articles to compliment those pockets of quiet time over the next two days…

To find out the bad habits that cause clutter, as well as the secrets to flawless skin, keep on reading!

Have you ever heard of rent week? No, neither had I. It’s basically the week in which your rent/electricity/internet/phone/health insurance and vet bills are due aka the worst week of the month. Bon Appetit has compiled a list of rent week meals that are surprisingly delish!

I cannot stand clutter – it gives me major anxiety. Do you possess any of the seven bad habits that cause clutter? Number 6 is my secret to a clutter-free house.

What to add to your smoothie for flawless skin: I’m talking wrinkles, acne, dullness… you name it!

“The the American Council of Obstetrics and Gynecology states that your period is as important as your breathing rate and blood pressure in the big picture of your well-being, and that’s why they now consider it a fifth vital sign.” This article breaks down the four stages of your hormonal cycle (if you’re a woman, of course), and highlights the significance of the period. So, no ladies, it’s not just a monthly inconvenience. It’s the backbone to your entire life. (It’s not normal for your period to be not normal. Go see a good GP! I’ll be writing a post about this soon.)

And finally, probably my favourite article of the week: is anyone else fascinated with New York apartments? Some of them are SO OLD and have the strangest quirks, yet people pay a fortune to live in them! It’s insane to me. Here are some of the weirdest things people have to put up with in their New York apartments.

Let me know what articles and websites have been on your radar this week, and as always, have a lovely weekend.
