April 2016 Favorites

April Favorites | Katya Orlovie

a. Reading – I’m supposed to be reading Jane Austen for a book group but I’ve been consuming everything from Marquis de Sade, old viking tales, and graphic novels. Taking the time to read honestly feels like the most decadent thing ever sometimes.

b. Lavender and Honey in Pasadena – Ohhhmygod, if you haven’t had a honey latte please treat yourself (and get Pasadena toast while you’re there!) because it’s honestly the best. I always want to have meetings there, #sorrynotsorry, because the space has that creative feeling (or maybe a bunch of creatives just happen to go there all the time?) that’s so inspiring. Pair that with outdoor seating and wifi = my new favorite place.

c. Softball – Ever since I’ve watched The Sandlot, I always wanted to learn how to play baseball and this month I started playing softball for the first time ever. Even though it’s frustrating sometimes (why do I have to throw home? what’s this about stealing bases?), learning a new sport is so much fun. I just wish I was better at throwing the ball around, definitely need to practice more!

d. Red Sonja and Gwenpool – No, these characters are not in comic together but I picked up their respective adventures and have been blown away by the art and stories. Red Sonja was always a favorite of mine but the redesign looks so great and the story is heading to an interesting place so I can’t wait to read more. Gwenpool was somewhat of an impulse purchase but it’s such a fun ride. It’s seriously the best mash-up – she’s fun, girly, slightly psychotic and brings the feels which is what you really want out of a comic right?

That’s all for my April favorites – let me know what you’ve been loving this month!
Thanks for reading!
