5 Things Tuesday

Hello everyone. Happy Tuesday.

I feel like I just wrote a 5TT post … anyways, this is what’s going on with me:

1  INCREASED PRODUCTIVITY - So I work from home, which sometimes is awesome (like making your schedule and being your own boss) and sometimes is horrible (like getting caught up in a TV show or napping when I shouldn’t). It can be hard to stay focused and motivated when you work alone.  In most cases, I’d probably just go to a coffee shop to work, right?

Here’s the thing, in LA coffee shops are usually super crowded and there’s never enough outlets. And then there’s that whole other element of parking and in a way I’m not really productive. So I usually just forgo the coffee shop work atmosphere as a whole. 

Well, a Florida friend of mine mentioned COFFITIVITY - an app that sounds like a coffee shop. How great is that?! You have no idea how much background noise helps. A LOT.

A friend of mine came over yesterday and we drank coffee, listened to soft music, and worked for a few hours while Coffivity did its thing. It was great. So yeah. You should try it out.

BONUS: another good option to use is listentoamovie.com - audio of movies and TV shows!

THIS MARKETING CAMPAIGN FOR PRETTY LITTLE LIARS - While everyone else out there watching PLL tonight, I’m avoiding Twitter in the meantime. No spoilers!

But this marketing campaign, I just can’t get over it. They’re pretty on top of it. First they called Spencer out for her Jesse Spano ways and now this.

I just can’t get over Aria’s face! Seriously, the sheer fact that Lucy Hale signed off on this is amazing. But this week it’s happening. #AriaFindsOut

3   EXCESSIVE AMOUNTS OF BBQ SAUCE - You guys, I just want you to know that I have a crap ton of BBQ sauce leftover from a dinner that my community group served on Saturday. 

I’m pretty sure we’ll return the six bottles back to Costco, but in case we don’t, I’ll need all your best BBQ based recipes! 

So far I have BBQ burgers and BBQ chicken sandwiches. And maybe sauce for chicken fingers.

IT’S THE START OF A NEW ERA FOLKS - I’m excited! Two of my favorite guys hosting the best of late night shows. Get it.

SOMETIMES I WISH I KNEW HOW TO KNIT - Just so I can make cool things like Wool and the Gang.

Not only do they have totally rad stuff, but their commercial photography is amazing. I want to do work like that. You know, just in case you know of anyone who needs photography like that. Or wants to give me an awesome beanie :)
