Things I'm Loving

Thursday, September 25, 2014



1. Stila liquid eyeliner

Sadly, my Lorac eyeliner is coming to the end of its lifespan, so I figured while I was home over the weekend I should get myself a new liquid eyeliner from Sephora. While I love my Lorac one (seriously, it's fantastic), I decided to pick up one that I've heard Youtubers rave about for years. Now that I'm no longer afraid of liquid eyeliner, I decided to pick up Stila's Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid  Eye Liner in intense black. This guy has the thinnest tip I've seen on a liquid liner and it isn't joking when it says that it stays all day.



2. Puffer vests

Yes, it's about time I was able to bust my vests out again! I collected quite a few at the end of summer when J. Crew was having their lovely sales (a cranberry, tan, and herringbone have all been added to my closet) and my closet at school has its own section for vests. I am not ashamed of it, in fact, I am very proud. They're just so practical for a college student, honestly. The pockets, the warmness (but not overwhelming amount(, and the ability to make even just a spirit jersey, leggings, and a pair of riding boots that much more put together.



3. My new haircut

I finally got the gross ends of my hair cut off and I'm honestly loving the shorter length so much that I might get more cut off next time? I KNOW. Weird. I haven't gotten a proper haircut like that since I first started growing my hair out in ninth grade. For the time being, I'm so beyond content with my hair and the way it still feels so smooth and lovely. I've said it before and I'll say it again, I would literally fly halfway across the world for my hairdresser to do my hair. I trust nobody else!



4. Death Cab for Cutie

I decided to listen to Death Cab over the weekend, and nothing but, and it's pretty much carried over into this whole week. I'm not complaining in the slightest. It started with hearing "I Will Possess Your Heart" on the radio on Saturday and continued when I came home and listened to every Death Cab song in my iTunes library on repeat. My favorites? "Transatlaticism", "Movie Script Ending", and "No Sunlight".

5. Tazo Giant Peach iced tea

Every once in a blue moon, my campus carries Tazo's glass bottles of iced tea and every time I see one in the coolers, I geek out about and instantly purchase one. My go to is their Giant Peach iced tea, which is really just green tea with some peach flavored juice. But it's so good. I love flavored green tea, especially for lunch. Something about it just makes me feel better about myself and my day.



6. Friday Night Lights by H. G. Bissinger

I've talked about the show to death, so I finally picked up the book about a month ago on a Barnes & Noble binge. I meant to read it on my vacation to Delaware, but never got around to it. I finally started reading it and I've found it incredibly hard to put down. If I didn't have to study for two exams this week, I probably would have powered through over half of it by now. But, alas, I've had work so I'm only about a quarter of the way done with it. It's so interesting to hear the real story behind the movie and television show that tore my heart apart. I love true stories as well! Something about nonfiction just gets me.

7. The SacconeJolys 

If you want happiness in a 10+ minute video, look no further. I've been watching this channel religiously for the past few weeks (and on and off for about a year) and I can say, with certainty, that watching this family makes my life infinitely brighter. I'M OBSESSED. Emilia and Eduardo are so precious and Jonathan and Anna are just delightful and every video is just packed with cute and hilarious moments. You can find me curled up on my windowsill, awing over the newest video and smiling like an absolute loony.

8. Walking

My roommate and I have finally started our normal walking schedule again. We did this last semester and it's just nice to get in those 30 minutes of physical activity. We're not looking to lose weight or get killer bodies. We just really want to wind down at the end of the day with a nice walk (run for her, I can't run on treadmills because of my bad knees. Thanks softball) and chat. I also want to make sure that I don't outgrow any of my clothes (or even have them be massive on me) because I really don't want to buy any new pairs of pants or sweaters. Sorry not sorry.
