Add It To Your List

I'm linking up with Lauren and Bre for the first time! This blog hop is a place to share the things you already recommend to people in real life. Here goes...

Eat, Drink, and Be Lauren

Music. I recommend giving a listen to the new music from former members of One Direction. If you've been around here before, you aren't surprised that I was a fan of the boy band (and saw them in concert not once, but two times), so you might expect me to already love their solo stuff. But it's really good, you guys! Liam's got a fun R&B bop in Strip That Down, Niall's Slow Hands has been on repeat since it came out, and Harry's doing his thing with a '70s British rock vibe on Sign of the Times. These tracks all sound so different and I'm into them!







TV. I recommend starting from the very first episode of The Goldbergs and bingeing all the way to the season four finale. The show is SO CUTE! Ok, that's a pretty bad description, but it is! The '80s nostalgia is so fun, the family dynamic is realistic and heartwarming, and the cast is incredible. I don't watch a lot of sitcoms because they are cheesy and annoying, but this one fills my heart with joy the second it starts. (I might also be a smother.)


Netflix. I recommend watching Hasan Minhaj: Homecoming King STAT. Jacob and I saw him perform this show in Vancouver back in February and it's so good. It's real and funny and sad and timely. He's my favorite! I also recommend watching Master of None. The first two episodes this season were ok, but every episode after is like a mini movie. They are all so smart and beautifully shot. Some of them stand alone from the storyline too. My favorite episode was Amarsi Un Po. I could feel everything they were feeling!


Podcast. I recommend downloading NPR's first ever podcast for kids, Wow in the World. My kids are little science geeks and I'm always looking for ways to feed their brains. Mindy and Guy, the hosts of this 30-minute podcast, ask who, what, where, when, and why cool things happen all over the planet with segments like how does g-force work on a roller coaster, where is the ninth planet in our solar system, how do astronauts poop in space, what did early humans eat, and how can saying "thank you" make you healthier. We've listened to the first two episodes in the car and my 6 and 8 year old boys were silent (except for their laughter) the whole time.


Beauty. I recommend Redken Hot Sets 22 Thermal Setting Mist for a good heat protectant. I have fine, thin hair and have been using this for about a year now. It's sticky, which is a good thing for me because my hair needs some oomph, and really holds my style, whether it's straight or wavy. The scent is light and pleasant, I spray it on, brush it through, and go to town with my flat iron. I don't even use hairspray anymore!

I love Guy on How I Built This but I didn't know if Wow in the World would be interesting enough for an adult... but it sounds like it is! I didn't love Master of None at first but then I picked it back up and really liked most of season 1. I need to watch that finale and then get into season two. Thanks for linking up!

I catch The Goldbergs here and there and need to watch from the beginning.

I love Harry's album. I also love Niall's new song. I'm not fully on board with Liam's song.
