Since spring break ended, I've been struggling with completing the semester. I'm happy to see April begin, meaning I'm that much closer to the end of the semester and warm weather. I'm definitely going to appreciate being outside and the pool a lot more this summer. Next week, I'm starting a new job, and am hoping to get back in the swing of things. Here are this week's ten things:
1 / Laura Dern's rustic Los Angeles home. Slightly in love.
2 / Mindy Kaling discusses the final season of "The Mindy Project".
3 / Jenny Slate and her year of living publicly. I love her.
4 / Examples of minimalist living.
5 / Recruiters' seven biggest job interview pet peeves.
6 / 'Ugh, I'm so busy': A status symbol for our time.
7 / The most perfect boots I'm completely lusting over.
8 / Seven bad habits and what they say about you.
9 / Charts for anyone trying to be better this month.
10 / Ellen Degeneres and Portia de Rossi's stunning Santa Barbara home.

This week, I started watching The Newsroom on a whim (on HBO Now and Amazon Prime). In fact, I loved it so much, upon finishing (there are three seasons totaling 25 episodes), I immediately began watching again.

Centered around Jeff Daniels as anchor Will McAvoy who, together with his executive producer Mackenzie McHale and staff, sets out to put on a news show "in the face of corporate and commercial obstacles and their own personal entanglements."
As this crazy world we live in just seems to get more and more unbelievable, I find myself thinking, "What would Will McAvoy think of all this?"

While my interior home style tends to stay the same, drawn towards natural linens, wood, and soothing colors. My exterior style tends to be all over the place. I love Spanish white stucco homes surrounded by lush landscape, the cleanness of a Cape Cod/Hamptons style home, and occasionally, a modern clean design.

On my computer, you can usually always find a few open tabs. Netflix and two pinterest tabs: my secret wish list and worn inspiration boards. These days, I find myself wearing three main outfits. To work at night, a pair of sweats and a sweatshirt, plus my all too worn in Ugg slippers. At school, leggings and a sweater or a nursing uniform. And at home: pajamas. Over the past few years, I've decided what works and what doesn't work as far as style goes. Comfort is key. Some of the inspiration I'm taking into putting more effort into my style this year:
