This year, in honor of their 20th Birthday, Kate Spade is doing a series of posts on things they love. Consequentially, this trend has inspired me to note a few of my favorite things. I got the list idea from a blog I read, actually.
Essie Geranium: I usually err on the side of neutral (read: plain and safe) nail colors. Essie’s Sand Tropez was my go-to. But. Recently I had an adventurous streak and bought a bright red color: Geranium. I’m obsessed. I love how bright and fun it is, especially in cold and dreary January. Its like a little pop of color every single day.
Reading: I got an iPad Mini for Christmas and I use it constantly. The first app I downloaded Christmas morning was Kindle, and since then I have read 4 books. I forgot how relaxing it was and how it helped me clear my mind. Now I have a whole list of books I want to read. Its addicting. And definitely one of my favorite indulgences. Recently, my favorites have been Looking for Alaska by John Green and Rules of Civility by Amor Towles.
Law & Order Special Victims Unit : When I got to school this year, I was very against shows like Law and Order. And then my roommates started playing it. All. The. Time. And very slowly, I became addicted. I hate ending without the crime being resolved, and I always watch when there’s a marathon.
Herbal Tea: Every single night after dinner, I have a cup (or two) of herbal tea. It started as Tazo Passion Tea, and then one (very very long) day at Trader Joe’s, I came out with even more flavors to try. Currently, I have a box of Candy Cane Green Tea and Pomegranate White Tea in my pantry that I am constantly making. Its the perfect and most relaxing way to end a day.
Reading Blogs: I have a really long list of blogs that I subscribe to via Google Reader. A few of my favorites are The College Prep, Atlantic-Pacific, Classy Girls Wear Pearls, and Sweet Lemon Mag. Among many others.
Saturday Night Live: I’ve watched SNL since 9th grade, and I have been a huge fan ever since. I have been known to stay home Saturday nights to watch new episodes, or spend precious Sunday homework time watching episodes I missed. I am obsessed and can quote so many different skits.
Sticky Notes: I love writing lists. Things to do, things I need to remember, songs I like…everything. Consequentially, I love sticky notes and cute stationary. I have a whole drawer filled of them, wayy more than I need.
Puppies: I posted earlier about how much I love dogs. And its true. As much as I love my dogs at home, I can’t wait until I can adopt my first dog after college. And if you haven’t already, you should look at this tumblr, you should immediately. It will change your life.
How I Met Your Mother: How I Met Your Mother is my all time favorite show. Its my go-to when I’m choosing what to watch. Its the show where I can see five seconds of an episode and know which one it is, and can quote all of it. When I’m sick, I watch How I Met Your Mother. I own all the seasons on DVD. It has a special place in my heart.
Cuddling: Its pretty self-explanatory, really. Who doesn’t love being warm and close with the person they love?
Coffee: I. am. addicted. I drink at least one cup every single morning. If I don’t, I get terrible headaches. But its soo good. And its so perfect in the mornings.
