My Top Five

A new series dedicated to curating the perfect list for any and everything. From my favorite red lipsticks and fancy cheese to the most celebrated heroines in children's pictures books, this week I'll invite you to join these five newsletters. They are my daily afternoon fix and extremely hyggeliscious. Enjoy :)

Lake Street Dive



I discovered Lake Street Dive about eight months ago from the Note to Self  Spotify page. Since then, their playlist has been on repeat and is usually my alarm in the morning. A good morning pick me up, I love their soulful and vintage pop music style. Their latest album, Bad Self Portraits is a must buy-so check out their site, shop around and support this awesome group. My absolute favorite tracks from their new album is You Go Down Smooth and Rich Girl which is from their last album, Fun Machine.

Dear Readers






Good morning readers, I have been writing Sit and Stay Awhile for nearly five years (I seriously cannot believe I have to stuck to this blog for that long) and since I have grown a good size audience, I am more than curious to know what you have to say. What do you think of the content I produce? What would you like to see more or less of? More travel and culture, do it yourself projects, literature reviews, fashion, home projects or personal posts? With school over in the fall and a pretty degree to hang up (YAY!!!), I have some future plans in the works for the blog. But before we get there, I want to know what your experience has been like when you come and read Sit and Stay Awhile. Share your thoughts through email, comments or on social media. Thank you for reading and continuing to follow me.

Saturday Happy



Racing corgis to help decide on names for the new royal baby due next a month? A little bit over the top or just plain adorable? I am loving the photos from the first ever corgi race. All the more reason to get a little puppy!!! What is making you happy this week?

Friday Showings

The first time I came across the name Robert Durst was about four years ago when I started working as a page at the local library. I was shelving books and  Without a Trace: Iside the Robert Durst Case by Marion Collins caught my eye. So I've seen the movie All Good Things with Ryan Gosling portraying Robert Durst and have read parts of the book I mentioned above. When I heard HBO was making a miniseries about the murder case, I wanted to make sure not to forget to watch it. I never got around to watching Jinx but now that he was caught confessing, I definitely will be binge watching it soon. What are you watching this weekend?
