Must-Reads of the Month (41) + FFF!

August 10, 2018

Based on how often I actually end up sharing these must-reads posts, I've decided to shift gears and change the name to monthly reads as opposed to weekly. Also linking up with Cora and Nicole for my first Fab Finds Friday!

In case you haven't heard already, JOMO is the new FOMO

Body positivity advice from Emily and crew of Cupcakes and Cashmere and Lily of Kale and Caramel

Robyn's letting go of the thin ideal in your intuitive eating journey
"Accepting that no matter your body size, you are still you and you still have to deal with the mental and emotional problems in your life no matter what your body size can be really hard. But letting go of these things allows you to actually begin living your life. It allows you to begin showing up for yourself."

Easy, quick and affordable ways for self-love for the body, home, soul and well...self.

Beautifully written essay on the power of food amidst a difficult diagnosis. Also inspiring me to make my own birthday cake this year!

Naomi's reminder that sometimes we just need to let go of control over our lives

"Not having everything figured out–not having the answers, the 360 degree view of the outcome–doesn’t equal the inability to move in the right direction.  Instead of focusing so much on the results, focus on the process. Instead of making decisions with the aim to micromanage the outcomes, do what’s right, right now."
In terms of kitchen inspiration, looking at making either of these no bake date and oat chocolate cookies at some point this weekend! Hope you find some sweetness in your weekend too.

Have you ever made yourself a birthday cake? 
What are your plans for this weekend?
