Spring and Early Summer Faves

Whew, it’s been quite a while since I’ve posted about things I’ve been loving… and I’ve been loving so many things lately! Also, I want to make it clear that even though summer weather in Florida starts in mid-april, I don’t consider it summer until after Memorial Day. So, I’m technically not THAT late getting this list out. Right? RIGHT?!

Villa Alena Peach Mascato and Peach from Trader Joe’s – This is basically fizzy alcoholic peach juice and I’m obsessed with it.

Tic Tac Freshmints – These have come in and out of my life since middle school- and right now, they’re definitely in!

Trader Joe’s Rose Water Facial Toner – Hi, I’ll take one of every rose item you have. I love this stuff! It’s light, refreshing, and less expensive than the rose water I used to buy on amazon.

Lilacism by Essie – I’ve been so obsessed with this bright-but-still-light purple polish. I’ve probably reached for this color 6-7 times in the last few months. It’s the perfect shade for spring and summer.

Broad City – I watched season 1-3 in about 5 days. Broad City is a less serious, more enjoyable version of HBO’s Girls. It’s 2 best friends living in New York City being outrageous. Season 1-4 is currently streaming on Hulu.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine – It’s taken a few years, but we’ve finally started watching this NYC cop sitcom in April! Andy Samberg is hilarious, but so are all the minor characters as well. The best part is that there are sooooo many available episodes, so it’s a great show to binge. This one is also available on Hulu.

Isle of Dogs – I love Wes Anderson’s storytelling and visual aesthetic, so I was already expecting to love this movie, but it really blew me away. Isle of Dogs is charming, funny, and packed with Hollywood’s best (voices).

Criminology Podcast Season 2 – If you’re not into true crime, this podcast may not be for you. Season 2 of criminology is all about the golden state killer, who has also been dubbed the East Area Rapist and the Visalia Ransacker. The golden state killer terrorized northern California throughout the 70’s and 80’s. Amazingly, through the power of DNA technology, he was caught just weeks ago!

 

September 2015 Favorites

5– Why Not Me by Mindy Kaling – I came home last week to find that Ray ordered the newest book by Mindy Kaling for me! I read her first book, Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me, this summer. She’s hilarious and even though I’m only three quarters of the way through Why Not Me, I highly recommend both of her books.

snake plant– Snake Plant – Three weeks ago Ray, Brie, and I traveled to Live Oak to participate in Flea Across Florida, which is essentially a really big yard sale across the state of Florida. We made one stop, picked up a snake plant and a pocket knife, and then it promptly started pouring. We had a snake plant in the past, but Black Cat was forever trying to eat it. So far he’s left this one alone.2– New Shoes – Guys, check out my new (but slightly used because I bought them off ebay) Tory Burch Revas! I love them and I love that I didn’t have to pay $230 for them!
3– Trader Joe’s cold brew coffee concentrate – I’m forever on the hunt for the perfect at-home iced coffee. This is mostly because I don’t have the funds or time to frequent a coffee shop every morning but I NEED the coffee. The Trader Joe’s concentrate is perfect for my current morning routine because all I have to do is pour some over ice, add a little milk or water, and pour in some creamer. Which brings me to my next favorite…

-Star Wars Coffee Creamer – On the real, there is no difference in taste or flavor. However, I love the design and Star Wars appreciation happening here.4– Thieves cleaner – I love this natural all purpose cleaner made with thieves oil. Not only does it smell like Christmas, I can clean and sanitize every surface in my house with just one cleaner.
tumblr_m1hzxpFESF1qmw273o1_500– Gossip Girl – This is no surprise to anyone to who reads this blog, follows me on twitter, is my friend on facebook, or talks to me in real life.  It’s all I’ve been talking about for weeks! In fact, Gossip Girl was in my favorites last month as well!  I finished the series this month and couldn’t be more obsessed. I’m not sure why I didn’t watch the series earlier, as I read a lot of the Gossip Girl books in middle school and high school. #chuckandblairforever
