Currently Watching, Listening, and Reading

Currently Watching, Listening and Reading // Pugs & Pearls Blog

Watching
We just finished up season 1 of Suits and we have really enjoyed it! I'm excited to have found a show that has a lot of seasons already and is still on. Plus, it's really neat to see Megan Markle, knowing what she ended up doing in real life! Available on Amazon Prime.



Listening 
I really love Chalene's podcast. She always really interesting guests on for interviews about health, nutrition and just general life advice. I like to listen to the podcasts when I'm doing yard work. I can usually get 2 or 3 episodes in while mowing our yard. Last time I worked in the yard I enjoyed listening to the episode about people who are chronically late and the more recent one about cleanses-specifically those Instagram teas people are always promoting. 

Reading
Me Before You was one of my favorite books! I have issues with the ending, but the writing and the characters were so good. I wasn't planning to read After You, the sequel, but when I discovered the Overdrive app that lets you check out audiobooks from your library I decided to give it a shot. It wasn't as good as Me Before You, but I did enjoy hearing from Lou again. 

Lauren Groff writes SO beautifully. I picked up Florida because of the setting. As a Floridian I was curious! It's fun to read about places you are familiar with. This book is a collection of short stories all taking place in or having connections to Florida. I haven't finished it yet, but I already know I love the style of writing. You can seriously feel the heat and humidity rising off the page with her descriptions. Some of the stories are mesmerizing and some aren't as good.

  1. I think Megan Markle is the most beautiful person- inside and out. I've seen a few episodes of Suits and loved her on there! I love Kate (Middleton), too. I just think William and Harry snag amazing women :)
    I haven't heard of that podcast or your second book. Glad you're enjoy them, though!!

    1. I also love Kate Middleton! I didn't really have an opinion of Meghan Markle when the royal wedding was happening, but I've enjoyed her character on Suits! She really is stunning!

  2. I couldn't get into Suits, I don't know why! I definitely am going to check out the podcast you shared; I'm always looking for a good podcast series to listen to!

    1. It seems like other people have said the same thing! The first episode wasn't my favorite, but I quickly got into it!

  3. I love Suits - we are currently on Season 7 and I am so sad to already know this is the last one with Megan Markle. I love Chalene Johnson so I'll have to check out her podcast. I need something new to listen to at the gym.

    1. I'm so happy that there are so many seasons already there for us to watch! I had no idea about this show until this year when the wedding was going on.
      Chalene is great! The good thing about this podcast is that there are so many different topics, so you can really pick and choose what sounds interesting! She is always well researched, which I appreciate.

    1. Podcasts are so popular right now but this is the only one I've stuck to! Sometimes I don't want to listen to music or an audiobook, and I feel like a podcast is the perfect inbetween thing!

    1. If you need a show to watch, it's a good one! Fall tv is picking back up soon though, so you might want to save it until all the shows are on a break!

  6. Oh my gosh, I haven't heard anyone say anything about Chalene in years, but I used to LOVE HER!! I honestly completely forgot about her and her podcast!! I remember she used to be so motivating. I used to listen to her on my runs all the time. I need to re-subscribe to her stuff!

    1. Yes! I first learned of her when I went through the Turbofire Beachbody workout! Always loved her energy and I agree, she is very motivating. Her podcast is so well researched and there are always really cool topics! I especially love any of the nutrition related ones!

    1. I totally agree! We haven't been blowing through it very fast, but that's mostly because we haven't had much couch time lately. I'm just a good sick day away from binge watching, haha!

  9. I just haven't been able to get into Suits - did you get into it straight away or did it take a few episodes? I've never heard of Chalene but it rings a bell with the beachbody workouts (sorry if I got that wrong?). J xx

    1. Another commenter said the same thing! I felt 'into it' by the 2nd episode.
      Yes, you are exactly right. Chalene did several Beachbody workouts. I love Turbofire, and had great success with it a few years ago. (I really need to start it again!) She is super motivating and smart!
