    100% agree on Terrace House: Opening New Doors!! I was done when Shion and Tsubasa left. Looking forward to see what the next series will be like!

    • Jenny says:

      Same, I love Tsubasa so much and that entire group’s friendship! Hopefully they’ve casted better people for this new season because I can’t put up with another Yui!

    Small things sometimes give more joy. The nail polishes are very pretty and your cat is so cute. The book and the show sound interesting will check them out. Even I sometimes feel lost when it comes to IG. Absolutely love the feeling when we have booked a trip and have something to look forward to.This July we will be visiting US as usual but will be doing a short road trip from Seattle to Yellow Stone National Park. I am so excited. :-) Loved this post.

      Thank you Via! I’m hoping with the book I’ll be able to find creative joy on Instagram again rather then get sucked in to the numbers game. Ooh that sounds like a fun trip! I was at Yellow Stone a few years back and it’s beautiful there, but quite chilly! I went at the end of May/beginning of June but I had to wear a thick hoodie, so make sure to check the weather!

  8. Love your favourites Jenny! the Londontown nail polishes look amazing, I love the soft neutral tones. I agree pets are the best, my dog is responsible so much of my happiness :P Cancun looks beautiful, I hope the view is as spectacular as it looks xx

    Oh how I loved reading this post, Jenny! I have been feeling the same lately – social media can be a bit confusing at times and with constant Instagram changes I feel like it is so much harder to get noticed or grow audience. I am glad that we have our beautiful and supportive community though, ladies supporting ladies is everything! And Cooper is an absolute beauty – I wish I could play with him xx

    I truly adore the neutral, soft tones of the nail polishes – every single one of them would be ideal for spring/summer! I hope you’re having a lovely weekend so far babe :) x

    Oh that nail polish sounds wonderful, I am going for a mani today. And oh yes with 3 indoor cats and 4 outdoor cat I have lots of fur hugs to go around.

    That book sounds interesting. Ugh IG I have a love/hate relationship with it. But lately I am really getting fed up and burnt on it. Sometimes I think of deleting it and not bothering anymore.

  14. What a fun new series! I haven’t been to Cancun since my college days. I bet it’s changed so much. The resort you booked sounds amazing! Yes just the act of booking a vacation is exhilarating in itself :) We watched Terrace House last year. The only one we could get into was Boys & Girls In The City. Some of the people on Opening New Doors just annoyed me to no end that I couldn’t watch.

    • Jenny says:

      Cancun is a popular spring break destination, but hopefully our resort won’t be too rowdy, I’m getting too old for that crowd, haha.

      Opening New Doors had such a great start, I adore Tsubasa and how genuine she was. But omg are you referring to Yui? The minute I saw her my bitch radar started going haywire and my husband wouldn’t believe me when I told him. But the way she acts is just so fake and kinda psychotic…I dunno if I’ll be able to keep watching if she keeps this up.

  15. I seriously love these basic shades! So easy to match! ◡‿◡✿

    It’s really amazing how the small things can bring such joy.

    Cuddling with pets is always awesome. I love cuddling with doggies! That and finding a book that makes you really happy!

  18. I have been to Cancun many years ago, it was a beautiful holiday. But make sure you pack your best SPF – I got burned in the shade wearing a hat with SPF 50 applied, and it was one of the bad, peeling skin kind of burns.

      Oh yikes, that sounds painful! I have a big bottle of the Anthelios XL which is my strongest sunscreen, hopefully it’ll be enough!
