It’s time for another edition of Friday Favorites here on Southern Lights! I think this will be geared towards my workplace/desk favorites and while I don’t have a TON to talk about, I still wanted to pop on here and share some of the things that I have been loving this week (and beyond)!
AELEC S350 Bluetooth Headphones ($24): I recently (ish) went on a trip to Memphis to visit my cousin and decided to purchase these headphones for the flight so I didn’t have to carry my big Beats with me. I’ve never had wireless headphones and thought I’d start with a more affordable pair to see if I liked them before (potentially) purchasing a higher end pair. Well, the verdict is in…and I love them! Let me be honest, there are just some day at the office where I need a pick me up to get me to quittin’ time and I find that these are discreet and easy to wear while at work. They are also great for working out; I used to hate when my cord would get stuck in the equipment at the gym…but now, I don’t have to worry about that! If you are considering wireless headphones, I definitely think these are a nice option that don’t break the bank!
Unwritten Fools Podcast (and blog): Shameless plug alert…this is my boyfriend’s (David) podcast and since he courageously defended my honor on last night’s episode after I was bombarded with hateful nonsense because of my take on the Beauty & the Beast remake, I thought it was time that Unwritten Fools get a proper shoutout on the blog! He and his friend Alec host this witty and (sometimes) charming podcast talking all things movies, TV and music! So if you’re in the market for something new and are looking for a humorous dialogue between two strapping young lads, then I think you should give this a try! If you take a listen, let me know what you think!
Workplace Playlist: From time to time I need to zone out while I’m at the office and this is my go-to playlist. It has everything from R&B to country and instantly makes me a happier human! All of these songs immediately put me in the best mood, and well, sometimes you just need a little pick-me up to get through the day!
The Happy Planner ($29.99): I don’t know about y’all, but I absolutely HAVE to have a planner in order to keep my life organized. I’m one of those people that loves lists, colorful markers, bullet points and fancy stickers to remind me that it’s someone’s birthday, and this planner delivers all that and then some! I bought an Erin Condren planner a couple of years ago and really liked it but thought it was too expensive for what it was, so I went searching for a replacement and stumbled upon My Happy Planner and thought I would give it a try…and boy am I glad that I did. It’s pretty much the same concept but at a much lower price point! If you’re a planner person and are in the market for something new, check out Me And My Big Ideas and see if it’s something that could work for you!
Like I said, I know I didn’t have much, but I wanted to share the things that have been getting me through the work week (it’s been a looooooong one). What are your favorites for making work more tolerable, I’d love to know!
