Things I'm Loving

1. Gossip Girl

I do not have any idea how I went so long without watching this TV show. People on Twitter talk about this show ALL THE TIME (mostly Chuck and Blair related things) and I usually get annoyed because I had no idea what they were talking about. My friend has been telling me for ages to watch this show because, well, New York City and the fashion. I had been hesitant to start mostly because I wanted to watch Mad Men first, but when I realized that I wasn't making it past six episodes, I dropped it and started season 1 of Gossip Girl. And holy hell, am I glad that I did. Knowing who Gossip Girl is (curse you, Internet!) makes it a bit annoying to watch, but the show is so frustratingly good. Also, Mr. Humphrey is so handsome. That is all.

2. Man Repeller: Seeking Love, Finding Overalls

The Man Repeller was the first blog that I started reading religiously. During my junior and senior year of high school, any time that we would use the computers for a class, I would without a fail always end up on this site. I couldn't get enough of Leandra's writing and hilarious anecdotes. I wanted to become a  man repeller too! For my birthday, it wasn't strange that I asked for this book or squealed when I opened it. I was saving it for a rainy day and didn't end up reading it until last week…and I loved every second of it. I have a feeling I could reread this book countless times and still be in love with it.

3. Cynthia Rowley New York comforter

My mother gently reminded me that I was going back to school in a little over a month and I went into full on panic mode. I didn't have a comforter, meaning that I didn't have anything for my room (because in my head, everything needs to match and be perfectly coordinated). After fervently checking every single department stores websites, scouring every inch of Kohl's and Target, and refreshing the Urban Outfitters and Anthropologie websites, I found nothing. Even more panicked, my mom and I stopped at Marshall's to see if there was at least something that was decent. Two minutes into the search and I found me epitomized into a comforter. It's like a watercolor of different pieces of cities, i.e. bridges and tall buildings. The colors are muted, but will bring life to the room. It's honestly the perfect comforter for me AND it already comes with two throw pillows.



4. Factory J. Crew Dotted Voile Popover

I bought this last week and and am not ashamed to admit that I've already worn it twice. It's such a breathable fabric, making it appropriate to wear even on the sunny and humid days that seem to be happening a lot lately.

5. Kate Spade's new rose print 

Be still my beating heart, for this gorgeous pattern of various hues of pink/purple is all I needed in my life. If I didn't have a whole bunch of school related expenses coming up, I would totally buy this tote and this dress.

6. The Body Shop Strawberry Shower Gel

My Lush Snow Fairy shower gel is almost gone, so I've resorted back to using my Body Shop gel that I got at TJ Maxx for less than $15. This stuff smells heavenly. So fresh, so clean, and so sweet. I want to buy every Body Shop product in this scent, it's just that good.
