A lot of you know I’m obsessed with True Crime/Murder podcasts, I had posted on instagram stories last week that I was looking for some more recommendations and got a swarm of recs! I love it. And apparently you all do too! I’m slowly working through the list but thought it’d be a good idea to share them all here. I will post the ones I have listened to already(with ratings!!) and then below that I’ll list all the ones that were recommended but haven’t listened to yet. As I listen to them I’ll update it here with my rating of it.
I’ve listened to these ones above so far. Most of them I really really loved. My top favorites are My Favorite Murder(I still listen to MFM every week and have seen them live 2 times), Dr Death(this one had Aaron and I thinking W-T-F), and The Teachers Pet. To touch on the other ones that weren’t rated as high, this is definitely just a personal preference, I was really into the first seasons for Up and Vanished and Serial but then felt like it got really boring/uninteresting on the next seasons where they report on different stories.
And here are the ones I’m slowly working through, I just started Root of Evil and so far SUPER into it. I’m on episode 3, the first episode was not that interesting(shares more backstory) but now I’m totally intrigued.
I think I prefer whole seasons that focus on just one murder vs ones that talks about a different murder every week(MFM does this and is probably the only one I love that does lol). I think I prefer a whole murder in one season because you can dive into all of the small details that you miss when it’s just one 40 minute episode. Anyways! If you have any others you suggest leave a comment and I’ll add it here!
Last year I had the opportunity to work with my friend Molly from Almostmakesperfect to redesign our master bedroom. For the longest time I had been wanting to make updates around our bedroom but just couldn’t wrap my head around what to do with it. I had been texting Molly one night and told her I needed major help with our bedroom and the idea that she would e-design it was born. She has amazing taste so I knew whatever she came up with would look beautiful.
I sent her tons of photos, took measurements of the space and sent her ideas for what I liked and disliked. Then she went to work and created a fun little moodboard of pieces she pulled together. I didn’t want to spend a ton so we kept our side tables(and just updated them with new knobs) and were able to style with stuff I already had around the house. The biggest thing was getting rid of that huge bulky bed frame, Aaron and I bought this when we lived in our old apartment and I felt like it just took over this bedroom with how dark the wood was and how high the headboard went(it covered a good chunk of one of our windows so it also blocked some natural light coming in). With an already small bedroom we really needed something light and airy to make it not feel as small. I’m so happy with the one we got.
Overall we’re SO happy we updated our room. We definitely couldn’t have made it look this great without Mollys help. I’m also having her help with the studio design so stay tuned for a future post with pics. And go check out Mollys post where she shared more photos of our room reveal with all of the sources and even a post with the plans and all the before photos!! (yikes)
