The One Where She Has March Favorites

Fair warning it’s almost exclusively music. Touch by Little Mix- I’m a huge fan of Little Mix.  I think they’re so cool and I’m always down with a girl group.  This song is SO catchy and the music video is so so so good.  Paris Goebel did the choreography and nothing is better than that….

The One Where She Talks About Women’s Day

March 8th is International Women’s Day.  It’s a day for women around the world to have a day just for us.  Granted I think everyday should be Women’s Day but that’s just me.  Kyrgyzstan takes this day very seriously and it’s my favorite holiday in country.  Women in Kyrgyzstan are the hardest working women I’ve…

The One Where She Has February Favorites

This month is very movie heavy just a warning.  The Oscars were this month and we always do an Oscars ballot so I watched them all. Hidden Figures- This was just like too good.  The cast was exceptional and it was a look into a world of not only women in science but black women…

The One Where She Has January Favorites

So recently I got one of my wisdom teeth removed so basically for a week I was in bed icing my face in a hotel in Bishkek so this month is pretty TV heavy. Season 3 of Mozart in the Jungle- I LOVE THIS SHOW. It’s so lighthearted and fun and just enjoyable to watch….

The One Where She Talks About Her Favorite Books of 2016

If there’s anything I’ve done a lot of in Peace Corps during my free time it’s reading.  I constantly am updating the books I have on my phone and try to spend as much time reading as possible.  These are my favorite books that I read last year (some released last year and others are…

The One Where She Has December Favorites

Eyelash extensions- So I’ll do a full post about this on my beauty blog but these are a life changer.  Our friend Saltanat does eyelashes next door to Fat Cat and not only do I get a discount they’re WAY cheaper than getting them done in America (think $15 vs. $75).  But now I don’t…

The One Where She Has November Favorites

Barbara Boxer’s interview with Chelsea Handler- I was feeling wildly sad and unmotivated and in general let down with the election results.  I was in a big rut and then I saw this interview and it was exactly what I needed.  Barbara Boxer is an amazing woman and so is Chelsea Handler and this interview…

The One Where She Has October Favorites

Alright I got a shit ton Almaty- So to celebrate Jacob’s birthday and to take the GRE we spent a long weekend in Almaty and let me tell you it was amazing.  Almaty is really cool and like what Bishkek could be like in 5-10 years.  It was nice to walk around cool malls with…

The One Where She Makes Some Fancy Shit

Why is it when you put a fried egg on top of a dish it’s all of a sudden a million times fancier than it was before? I don’t know but it’s true.  Ask anyone. It’s a fact. I LIVE for putting fried eggs on top of otherwise boring dishes and it makes any meal…

The One Where She Talks About Year Two Goals

YEAR TWO BABY I can’t believe we’re really looking down the home stretch of service. It’s crazy to me to be applying for jobs and teaching programs right now thinking about what the next step is.  While it’s fun to start thinking about the next year and starting to get excited about the next steps there…

The One Where She Bullet Journals

Alright.  Just hear me out.  I discovered bullet journaling last week and have literally fallen in a sink hole of obsession.  I have never been this organized or productive IN MY ENTIRE LIFE.  I discovered this like most people by creeping all over instagram and then pinterest and then buzzfeed.  Bullet journaling is a way…
