I’m coming you today with some questions! I also think it’ll mean the comment section is fun and (hopefully) filled with good recommendations that we can all learn from!
OVER EAR HEADPHONES
I’m on the hunt for a pair of over the ear headphones. I originally thought I wanted the AirPods Max, but heard mixed reviews. Plus, they’re freaking expensive. I dug out a pair of Bose headphones I’ve had for almost a decade and they sadly won’t hold a charge anymore. I’m not sure that I need the best of the best technology. Noise canceling would be nice, but again, not necessary. Comfort is important though. I don’t want a pair of headphones that will cause headaches or anything like that. Bonus points for a pair that looks cute, ha!
Some pairs I’ve found that I think look nice, but I’d love personal recommendations, too: Sony Headphones (looks nice, still very expensive), Edifier Headphones (love the look, is the price too good to be true though?!), Beribes Headphones (bare bones, probably get the job done though).
With a little bit of a maternity leave coming up, I’m all ears for new podcast recommendations. Right now my favorites are “Books, Beach, and Beyond,” “What We Said,” and “Bad On Paper.” My problem with podcasts is that I feel like if I haven’t been listening for years, I might feel left out of the “plot.” So I need something I can jump into! Would love a fun, low-key podcast. Something I can just dive into… I think I want recommendations for chatty podcasts and then would also love ones where you walk away feeling a little smarter or something!
As always, I’m on the hunt forever and ever for good books to listen to/read. I’m on my reading grind right now and loving unwinding with a good book at the end of the day and use audiobooks to keep me company in the car. Lately I’ve been leaning towards more literary fiction. As much as I wish I could read rom coms or thrillers, they’re just not my favorite genres. I would love good books to sink my teeth into with great character development and excellent writing!
Between wanting to cook more and preparing to have a newborn, I am looking for easy “go-to” recipes. Here are some that I’ve tried and loved in the last year, if you’re looking for new ones too. I think my goal right now is to find some good recipes I can double to save for lunches/leftovers so I only have to cook once and can make the meals stretch out a bit farther.
