Monday Mood: What's Working Today.

Hey y'all. It's Monday again and it's pouring rain here which feels about right. Since I can't really do my weekend shopping report right now (unless you want to hear about the t-shirts I bought? They are a staple and on sale but...still t-shirts.) I thought I'd try something new - Monday Mood. This is "Stuff I Like" but more immediate. It's what's working for me to get through another Monday alone in my house. It could be anything - beauty, clothing, books, podcasts, food, nature, whatever. So today:

This banana bread recipe, which I haven't made yet but I am so intrigued by the idea of bourbon in banana bread! I LIKE BOTH THOSE THINGS. I am not a baker but I will definitely make this later in the week. Something to look forward to! (Note to self: buy bananas.)

Marianne and I were just chatting about the Kosas Rosewater lipstick which we're both putting on before video meetings every day. It's a very your-lips-but-better color and it feels like lip balm. I know I talked about it on the blog already, but it's still a favorite. I've found that putting on a little bit of makeup every day just makes me feel better in general.

The Strokes just put out a new album, amusingly called The New Abnormal, after a seven year hiatus and I had no idea! I was so excited to have something new to listen to and downloaded it immediately. It's not the best album they've ever done, but I've been listening to it on repeat and it's making me pretty happy. I dig this track a lot.

The Athleta sweatshirt I'm wearing here has become my #1 around the house cozy top. I've suggested it to you guys a few times but I can't stress how much I love it. It's not too thick, has a slouchy, oversized fit and it's never anything but comfy and soft af. Plus, leopard print! I wear mine multiple times per week (and today, obvs) because who even cares anymore.

Finally, I mentioned buying this Madewell necklace set and I'm currently wearing it over my sweatshirt and the combination is making me feel almost like a real human person who might go out into the world. Sigh. Anyway, it's cute, I'll post it up on Instagram.

Hope you're all doing well! Hang in there, gang.


  1. Perfect timing, thank you! I have some elderly bananas that I am side eyeing, and I have some rum in the cabinet. Presto!

  2. Ooh, I love The Strokes but somehow I thought they had broken up. I can’t wait to check this out.

  3. I need a banana bread equivalent for people who hate bananas.

  4. Made this last week, and really good.
