Lately I’ve been doing things a little differently here on the blog and on my socials, if you follow along there. (If you don’t you definately should! All of my links are in my sidebar!) For quite some time I’ve been struggling with the content I was putting out on my social media and here on the blog. If you’ve been here from the start, or if you’ve cyber-stalked back to my high school days, you might know that Something Shannon actually started as a beauty blog. From there I transitioned into other things, most recently fashion. I love beauty, and I love fashion. But I couldn’t shake the feeling that sharing solely about these materialistic things was not my calling. Throughout this time, even though my Insta feed looked great, and my follower count was rising, I felt so un-authentic. And I really felt myself being pulled further and further from my faith.
So things are going to be looking a little different around here from now on. I’m going to be posting less about the latest trends and best sales, and more about the love of Jesus and the beauty of life. I’m excited to explore this side of myself and share it with you. For the first time in so long, I feel excited to write again. However, I still want to be able to share my favorite things with you guys from time to time. Because I’m still me, I still love sharing great deals, my favorite new pair of shoes, or the best new beauty product I’ve stumbled upon at Target. Something Shannon has always been my space to share what I love with you, and I don’t plan to stop. So once a week I’ll be rounding up my top five things of the week. Sometimes they might be fashion or beauty related, sometimes not so much. But I hope you guys love it and I hope you love what I have in store. So let’s jump right into my top 5 this week!
GUYS!!!! I’m so so excited, this crazy cozy sherpa pullover has been on major repeat for me the last few weeks and I am SO excited that it is finally in stock online. It’s crazy soft, comes in three colors, fits true to size, and the best part, it’s only $12.99!!!
2.) Cinnamon Dolce Lattes
I’ve honestly never been a passenger on the PSL train. I don’t hate them by any means, but I don’t love them either! I recently tried a Cinnamon Dolce Latte for the first time and my world flipped! This drink is my new Starbuck’s addiction, I highly recommend if you love cinnamon and are looking for a delish A/W hot drink! Pro Tip: It’s even better with coconut milk! (*drooling*)
3.) This song.
You Say by Lauren Daigle. I mean, her whole new album really. Wow. I was brought to tears when I first heard this masterpiece and it’s been my top played song over the last week. If you haven’t heard it yet, download it NOW. Jesus speaks so loudly through music, it never ceases to amaze me.
“You say I am loved when I can’t feel a thing
You say I am strong when I think I am weak
And You say I am held when I am falling short
When I don’t belong, oh You say that I am Yours"
Fall is here and the candles are burin’! There’s just something about candles in the fall right? I have been obsessed with two scents from BBW’s Aroma Therapy line, Love:Rose + Vanilla, and Comfort: Vanilla + Patchouli. They are both such relaxing scents, I can’t get enough of either! (I’m also linking Mahogany Teakwood because it’s forever a fav of mine too!)
5.) The Rise Podcast
Give me ALL your podcasts recs! I’m serious, drop me a comment, send me a message. I have been listening to podcasts non-stop lately! My favorite at the moment is the Rise Podcast with Rachel Hollis. She has so many encouraging messages for young entrepreneurs and I can’t get enough! Plus, she has another awesome podcast with her husband called Rise Together, where they focus on topics regarding relationships. I’m LOVING this one too!
Happy Friday friends! I hope you have a great weekend and find something beautiful in every day!
