LIFESTYLE | Five on Friday - Apr.22nd - Severance, Over the Top, Pink Gems, Movie Night Out and a Pretty Coffee

Ooh, I haven't done one of these posts in awhile! It has been a bit crazy the last two weeks so I haven't had a chance to do anything really fun or take pictures of anything I have been enjoying. Work has been about keeping my head above water, but we all made it out alive which is what matters!


OMG this show! I haven't finished it yet, but I saw the tweets for the season finale and everyone's minds were blown (even Stephen King's!). I like Adam Scott's performance in The Good Place and of course Parks and Recreation  so when my husband first told me what this show was about, I was immediately fascinated! I actually have always wanted to not think about work at home and that's what Severance is about! People voluntarily separate their brains so that while at work, they only know work and when they clock out, their "outies" or home selves only know their home life and nothing of work. Creepy and weird, right? Talk about a work-life balance extreme!


I am seriously struggling with reading anything these days, but this was the last book I read and it only made me like JVN more. I have now been listening to his podcast Getting Curious with Jonathan Van Ness and really enjoying it! He asks good questions and I have actually learned quite a bit!


I love taking photos of pretty things at work and really it comes down to whenever I have time. There is always a sense of guilt when I run to the best window upstairs and setup props or the ringlight because no one else takes photos like I do. It's definitely the blogger in me that wants to create flatlays or make sure the photos look somewhat styled. Sometimes I take photos for clients, but when I took a photo of this pink tourmaline and sapphire ring it was during a moment of peace that I had to myself.


The Batman was our first time at a movie theatre since before the pandemic which I am sure many can relate to! We decided to make a day of it by going to the mall doing some shopping, grabbing a small lunch and then catching the 6pm showing. This is a looooong movie at almost 3 hours so we were pretty tired by the time we emerged! We grabbed some McDs on the way home and it was a really nice "date"! 


I say coffee, but it's actually a lactose-free hot chocolate from JJ Bean! My husband and I have Sundays off together so we took a little walk around the neighbourhood (one of my favourite lazy weekend things to do) and grabbed some artisanal beverages to boot.

Have a great weekend!
