I hardly ever share pictures from around the house, and that's mainly because there's only about one hour each day where the natural light shines through well enough for quality shots. Most evenings are spent chilling out with candles lit and a book in hand or a movie on the big screen (usually both at the same time because I love background noise),

In an effort to share some simple, everyday moments, I took a few pictures of what 7pm in the Active Spirit household usually looks like and am posting them here - in all their grainy and fuzzy glory.

^^ Bedside essentials: book, body oil, nail polish

^^ Baby's shelfie - I use more products on him than I do on myself

^^ A humble but mighty kitchen

^^ 10 minute tenders and tots from the air fryer and a side of southwest salad-in-a-bag because we rarely cook things "from scratch" around here

^^ Views from my desk

^^ BTS (behind the scenes)

^^ BTS of the BTS from a low-quality front-facing camera

^^ Deep in the selfie rabbit hole

  1. the air fryer is literally a life saver especially for the quick meals because nothing is cooked from scratch around these parks much either unless I have more than 3 three days lol

    1. listen. i got it for Christmas and i had a brief moment where i was feeling resentful for getting a kitchen appliance as a gift (because i'm no stepford wife!), but mannnnn, i love this thing! ain't nobody got time to make full meals everyday!

  2. these photos look like they're taken by a good ol' film camera and i love the vibe so much! were these taken using phone? because wow, the edit is GOOD!

    1. oh goodness, i am so flattered. these are not the kind i'd usually post because i prefer sharper, cleaner images, but i just went with it. and they were taken with a mirrorless camera! ❤️

    2. (except for the selfies. those came from my phone.)

  3. *grabs blanket and sits on the couch.* LOL!
    so serene!
