Spontaneous Miscellaneous | New Job & Recent Favorite Things

Happy Wednesday everyone! I am so excited to finally get this post up. It has felt like forever since I had a post up with all my recent favorite finds and updates. This is going to be a long one, so let's get into it. 

New Job
Probably the major new thing I have had going on is switching jobs. I am in college and have been working at Publix since I was 16. It was a great company to work for, and it taught me so much. However, I was very excited to leave. I may end up working retail again one day, but for now I will stick to what I am doing. Speaking of, my new job is SO stinkin' fun! I am working for an online company teaching Chinese kids to speak English. Being a part time ESL teacher is right up my alley and looks great on a resume as a future teacher. 

Meet EMIR!! He is a 10 year old boy with special needs living in an HIV-affected area. How precious is he? A major perk to my new job was finally making enough to sponsor a child through Compassion. Compassion is one of my favorite charities and their sponsorship program is amazing. My family has sponsored two girls through them since I was born, which has been amazing, but I have a whole new respect for the charity after signing up on my own. I can't wait to receive letters from Emir and learn all about him! Compassion is working to rescue children from poverty in Jesus' name and I would love to answer any questions you have. I encourage you to also browse their website here.

I have been debating getting a Kindle Paperwhite ever since I realized you can get free E-books from the library and come Amazon Prime Day, I couldn't resist. Y'all, I am obsessed with this little guy! It is so adorable and has a lot of great features. I personally like the glare free screen that protects your eyes and the vocabulary builder feature that allows you to look up any word you don't understand. You can share books with others who have Kindles and connect to Goodreads also. I am mainly obsessed with how easily it can be brought everywhere with me, due to it's compact size. You can find my rose gold case here

 I have never been in a Stein Mart until I went on vacay to Siesta Key and bought this adorable dress which comes in several colors and is currently under 20$. I was slightly in a rush but I would have loved more time to shop! If you are looking for professional or classy, casual styles, I would check them out. 

The Staircase
I have not finished this true crime documentary yet on Netflix but I am getting close. I still don't know if I think the suspect is innocent or guilty! I really recommend this one, it's SO good y'all! Watch the trailer here

My Library
This is so nerdy, but I LOVE spending time in the library. I for so long I just forgot that I could check out multiple books for free with a simple trip to the library. I never realized though too that I would have access to free E-books and Audiobooks as well. Being able to check out books without any cost to me, has expanded my taste in books completely and made me a more advanced reader. 

My sister and I gifted my dad some crazy socks for Fathers Day and we were all so impressed with the quality of not only Johns socks, but the customer service and quick arrival of our order as well. If you don't follow John on Instagram, you totally should because his videos always make my day. I love finding individuals with down syndrome and supporting their businesses! #nothingdownaboutit

I love following people on Instagram who recommend great books and I love following Kate. Her pictures are so esthetically pleasing (haha), and I love her funny Insta Stories! You should check her out for great book recs!

PHEW! I told you it was a lot to talk about. I hope you found some great recommendations here friends. As always if you have any questions or thoughts on anything please comment below, or feel free to email me: .
