Today, I just kind of want to blab about some things that I really like. This would be what most bloggers or internet personalities would call their “favorites,” but I don’t want to come to terms with the fact that my laziness has molded me into the amateur-blogger-stereotype so we’re going to pretend that this isn’t a run-on sentence and proceed with some things that I love to talk about.
Some tunes that I enjoy around this time of year that don’t involve any santa references or jingles bells:
- I Believe In Us – LÉON
- Drama – Jesse Rutherford
- Give It To Me – HOMESHAKE
- Warm On A Cold Night – Honne
- Please, Please, Please Let Me Get What I Want – The Smiths
- Still – Seinabo Sey
- You’re Still A Mystery – Bleachers
If you really want to keep up with what I listen to you can follow my spotify (self promotion! hi! and I don’t even feel bad about it).
In the category of literature, I’m still trying to find time to finish “Behold the Dreamers,” by Imbolo Mbue. I made a promise to myself (and to this novel) that I would finish it out despite the fact that it has been almost 6 months since I picked it up, and I’m a woman of my word. A book that I am very interested in reading next is John Green’s newest, “Turtles All the Way Down.” I’ll keep you updated with my thoughts on both.
I’m about to break into some uncharted territory on this blog, a safe place where I never thought I’d reach the point of discussing cosmetics as a ploy for conversation-content. I’m dramatic.Really, I just want to put a bug in your ear if you are curious or have heard the name Glossier. It’s actually a pretty rad company considering it all started on a blog, Into the Gloss, and later branched into its own skincare and cosmetics line. The brand is still pretty young, but, nonetheless, I’ve become my own sort of junkie to its products.
So in the spirit of holiday giving, here are some recommended products courtesy of moi that I look forward to using every day, and that on occasion make me feel like a Glossier model (look em up. they’re a bunch of cool girls. trust me.)
This isn’t a favorite of mine, but instead it’s a thought: I want to learn to cook. Not like top chef or putting garnishes on a plate, but I want to move past ramen noodles and Kraft’s easy-mac every night. My budget for groceries normally depends on the Free People sale selection so please keep that in mind before you judge me on my eating habits. If you have any tips on how to make normal people food please let me know.
I don’t have too much else to talk about, and so I’m going to get back to watching Sex and the City season six and pretending my life is more exciting than it actually is.
Cheers to keeping it real and happy holidays,
