5 Things I’m Currently Loving

October 23, 2017


Erin Schrader

It has been quite some time since I have done any form of a “what I am loving” type of post and because there is no time like the present so they say, I figured, why not do one now? I don’t know if it’s because I am nosy or curious [we will go with curious, it makes me sound like a decently better human being] but I always enjoy reading these types of posts from other bloggers or heck, just hearing my friends talk about things they are currently digging so I am hoping you are equally as nosy [errr, curious] as well. Where to begin…

Let’s go with a newly discovered item, podcasts.Z Supply The Sherpa Sweater Cardigan [true to size, wearing in small] // PAIGE Verdugo Crop Skinny Jeans [size up!]

I feel like I was a little late to jump on the podcast train, but now that I have I never want to jump off. Granted, I am not necessarily listening to many life-giving/thought-provoking podcasts [as long as the topic revolves around The Bachelor or Bachelorette, I’m good ;)] but regardless of the content, they are a great way to either pass the workday [explanation: listen to while working], would be awesome for workouts [you know, if you did those sorta things] and can be a great companion to a rather boring commute. My favorites are, of course, The Ben and Ashley Almost Famous podcast, Kaitlyn Bristowe’s Off The Vine and well if I do want to get out of my Bachelor world [hint: I don’t] I turn to How I Built This, Jen Hatmaker’s For The Love and a few others. I’ll do a full blog post on podcasts one of these days!

Next up, all things camo.Z Supply Camo Symphony Dress [true to size, wearing in small] // Z Supply The Symphony Dress [available in solid colors]

I’m so glad this is a trend that isn’t dying anytime soon. Mostly because I like to hide in crowds of people and this is the trendiest way to do it. I picked this dress up recently from Shopbop and it’s the perfect little on the go fall dress. You put camo on a t-shirt, pants, scarf, dress, jacket, vest, I don’t care – I’ll wear it. I mentioned Shopbop and you will most likely see me mention it again and again. I tell you what – the minute I discover a retailer that offers free 2-day shipping and free returns I am sold, hook line and sinker. Add in the crazy amount of inventory they have and BAM, done. In other exciting Shopbop news, they just released their loyalty program this week! Join Yours Truly Shopbop Rewards now to get your perks—including birthday treats, early sale access, back-in-stock alerts, and more!

Aside from the pieces in today’s post, I thought I’d help you find a few other goodies to stock up on right now so you can start taking advantage of racking up those rewards —

Third on the list – duh, coffee. I have been such a sucker recently for Cinnamon Sugar Cookie k-cups and people listen to me when I say, it’s good. BB Dakota Jack by BB Dakota Hogen Top [true to size, wearing in small] // PAIGE Verdugo Crop Skinny Jeans [size up!] // Dolce Vita Tay Suede Booties [true to size]

I am a fill your mug up at 7 am, 3 pm and maybe 8 pm type of girl. I keep telling myself I need to have an intervention with water at some point in time, but for now, caffeine it is. Of course, as the seasons change, ones coffee flavor should as well and that’s where my adoration for this whole Cinnamon Sugar Cookie thing came into play. Next on the list to try? Peppermint Bark and some Toasted Graham flavor. Mmm baby. Flavored coffee fo’ life.

Next up on the list of things I am currently loving – the thought of working out and eating better. Full disclosure, I just typed that sentence while putting a chip covered in queso in my mouth. That’s no lie pumpkin pie. But here’s the thing – I am sick of the way I am treating my body. I put absolutely nothing good in it [other than coffee and wine obviously] and then don’t do anything in return to get the bad stuff out, ie: exercise. I think we all have to come to that point where we say to ourselves “enough is enough” and I think after several weeks of feeling rather blah, lethargic and like I can’t actually button my pants at all [it’s true, I can’t] I’m at that point. Which leads to my last thing which probably won’t help me get fit anytime soon…

My obsession with Instagram stories recently. BB Dakota Tierney Marled Sweater [true to size, wearing in small] //Levi’s 721 High Rise Distressed Skinny Jeans [size up!]

I started doing this crazy thing where I actually talk in my stories and while I know I sound like a man, sing half of my words and make close to zero sense most of the time, it’s been a lot of fun to connect with readers in a different way. Naturally, because I am personally doing more stories this also means I am watching more stories which also means I am getting close to nothing else done in my day. It’s a really positive direction my life is going 😉 From talking about favorite eye makeup, to how NOT to get sidetracked during the day [uhhh, maybe stay off IG stories Erin] to of course, sharing what I am eating for dinner, it’s a fun new vertical to spend a little more time in. Now if I could only get that “little bit of time” to be a true story.

Alright, there we have it friends, 5 things I am currently loving. What’s one thing on your list right now? Do share!

Let’s just say, until we started working on this post, I had no idea that there were different pillows for different sleep positions. I figured it was a one-size fits all approach, maybe just a preference of firm or soft! Well, needless to say, I was way off. I also learned that over 70% of […]
