Inspiration Sunday: October 1

Inspiration Sunday | Writing Between Pauses

It's been so long since I've done one of these posts. The few readers that have followed the evolution of my blog(s) for the last several years will remember it, possibly. Basically, Inspiration Sunday posts were sort of chatty posts I used to put up every week; they included photos I was loving, articles I'd read, memes I found exceptionally funny. All kinds of things! It's just a fun little post, nothing too crazy. 

Hopefully, you'll find some funny tweets, some pretty pictures, and other fun stuff here. This is what has struck my fancy, inspired me, or just made me laugh in the past few weeks! 

Ok, first things first... do you SEE this Christmas Collection from Fenty Beauty? Rihanna, sweetie, I'm still saving up to buy some highlighter sticks... you can't drop a palette with oil slick packaging barely a month later! Except she's going to because Rihanna doesn't listen to me. 

Since it is October, I've been craving crockpot soups, biscuits, and grilled cheese sandwiches like crazy. This garlic bread grilled cheese... honestly, how hadn't anyone made this before? 

I know this another one of my own tweets, but seriously, it's dead on. If you don't know: 1200 calories is not enough for a human to survive. I have to remind myself of this constantly, especially in a world where we are barraged with information about deprivation diets all the time, even if we aren't actively searching for that information. In September, I'd been having a really hard time on Facebook because it felt like everyone I knew was posting about how they were restricting their calories. I just needed to remind myself that that information isn't true, that it isn't safe, that it's not a way to live. 

My most recent pins on Pinterest have been all about Disneyland and Autumn. I'm really craving another Disneyland trip at the moment, but I'm trying not to be an absolute nightmare about it... although I have threatened to book a trip for just myself a few times! I've also been looking for a pumpkin shaped cup for ages, so the image on the left is giving me extreme envy! 

October 1 Tumblr | Writing Between Pauses

Ok, I know I've been huffing and puffing about Autumn for a solid 6 weeks now, but... do you ever see a picture and think, "if I could be anyone, I'd be that person"? For me, this is one of those pictures. I have a very romantic vision of Hollywood in the 70s and 80s and this picture (while it's not actually from the 70s or 80s) sort of exemplifies my vision. Don't ruin the fantasy for me, please; in my dreams, I'm a 1979 starlit wearing sunglasses and a crop top.
