Last fall I did a #sorrynotsorry post that was chock-full of things that I straight up refuse to feel sorry about. And you know what? It felt good. As someone who apologizes for things far too often (I’m working on it), laying some things out there that I just won’t apologize for was oddly freeing.
So I decided to do it again.
A couple of months ago while I was checking in on blogs I wandered over to Camilla Leila (so much pretty!) and saw a post that she called #Sorrynotsorry. It was exactly what it sounds like: a little list of things that she is not at all ashamed about.
At the time I read the post, I was knee deep in guilt and thought this would be a perfect exercise to stop that noise in its tracks. I mean seriously, what better way to squash guilt than to make a list of things that you refuse to feel guilty about?
I got distracted (probably by something shiny) but came across my note about it the other day. I thought I’d give it a go, so I put together a list of ten things that I refuse to feel sorry about.
We recently acquired an old family hutch from my brother-in-law. After playing a bit of Tetris to figure out where the heck we could fit it, I became obsessive about styling it (because obsessive is kind of my middle name). I’ve been seeing gorgeous shelfies (I love that word, #sorrynotsorry) all over Pinterest and Instagram, but when I go to fill a shelf it usually looks like a hot, unkempt mess no matter how hard I try to be cool and artsy.
So I decided to do what I usually do and get completely lost down the Pinterest rabbit hole. And to make myself feel better about all of the time I lost there, I put together a blog post of some of my favorite shelf decorating ideas so that I could call it “work” and share it with anyone else who hates what their shelves look like.
Watching: Orphan Black
This show is in its third season but I just started watching it last week. And let me tell you: I. am. hooked. Binge watching, blew through season one in a week kind of hooked.
I don’t want to say too much about it in case you don’t watch it and want to give it a try. What I will say is that it’s one of those highly suspenseful shows that leaves you feeling like you physically need to know what happens next.
Also Tatiana Maslany, the main actress in the show, is absolutely incredible.
Eating: Pesto, pesto and more pesto.
I’m pretty sure this is going to be the summer of pesto—especially if I get my act together and both get a basil plant and manage to keep it alive. My favorite way to eat it lately is by making little pizzas with it. I use a corn tortilla (since they’re gluten free), spread on some pesto and top it with spinach, onion, mushroom and a little bit of cheese. YUM.
I’ve also been putting it on my zucchini noodles (which, by the way, I’m still obsessed with) and mixing it up with a chopped hard-boiled egg. I am a fan. A big one. If you have any other ways to incorporate pesto into a meal, please tell me. Help feed the addiction!
Drinking: Tazo Passion tea
Last time I did one of these posts, I was all about Tazo’s cocoa mint mate tea. Now that the weather is warmer, I’ve moved to a sweeter, more summery tea that tastes just as delicious iced. This one is a combination of hibiscus, orange peel, rose hips, and passion fruit and the more I type about it, the more I want to run to the kitchen and make a big, fat pitcher of the stuff…
Treat Yo Self is a series that focuses on inexpensive indulgences that make you feel good without feeling guilty. Because when momma’s not happy, nobody is happy.
After a few highly-trusted friends raved about the awesomeness of their Birchbox subscriptions, I decided it was high time to treat myself. At just $10 a month for five personalized beauty samples sent to my front step, it seemed too good not to try.
The likelihood of trying out beauty products on my own is tiny because a) I’m cheap as hell b) I hate waste and c) as much as I love the idea of beauty products, I don’t use very many of them. The thought of spending money on a whole tube of something that I might potentially hate and immediately throw out (…or hold onto for three years before I throw it out) makes me itch. But itty bitty sample sizes for a fraction of the cost? Sign. me. up.
