Things I’m currently obsessed with, 6.0

lany

  1. LANY. I know what you’re thinking, “another band made up of boys?!?!” The answer? Yes. All things yes. This band has been active since 2014, but it wasn’t until recently that I started tuning into their material, and let me tell you, I have become head over heels obsessed. I keep telling everyone I know to listen to their music and have turned into basically their marketing manager overnight??! All I know is, I haven’t listened to anything in my car other than their album, LANY, for about three weeks now. I am undoubtedly hooked. Check out one of their songs here.
  2. Baby Daddy. I didn’t start watching this show when it was trendy, same story goes for most shows I watch, but it popped up on Netflix a while back and my brother and his girlfriend were huge fans. I jumped in a couple times and watched with them, and suddenly it only made sense that I watched it from the beginning of the series. Now, here I am, with a new season out on Netflix that I finished in [not kidding] one day. If you need a good laugh or a little pick me up, check it out. You won’t be disappointed.
  3. Chobani Flip Coffee Brownie Bliss. Coffee flavored greek yogurt with biscotti pieces, milk chocolate, and brownie chunks. Need I say more? Personally, I love crunchy items in foods and its no surprise that I drink enough coffee to fill my body head to toe, so I feel as if Chobani dug deep into my soul and crafted this yogurt just for me. In their defense, however, I haven’t had a Chobani greek yogurt I haven’t liked, so there you go.
  4. e.l.f Double Ended Lipstick Duo in the shade Need it Nudes. I picked this up one weekend in Rochester with my boyfriend when I had forgotten a lipstick *gasps* at Target. I thought it was interesting to have two lipsticks included in the same wand, but much to my surprise, this has been the lipstick(s) I have been reaching for first. There were five options to choose from, but I got the nude shade(s) making it go with virtually everything in my wardrobe. The day end is a soft nude shade, whereas the night end is a bit bolder. The formula is sooooo creamy, it doesn’t dry my crusty lips out to the core. And, bonus? It was only $5! [$5 for two lipsticks…that’s almost unheard of].

Things I’m currently obsessed with. 


1. NYX Butter Lipstick in the shade Sugar Wafer (BLS13). Holy hell do I love this shade. The formula is creamy as hell, which makes it perfect for the chapped winter lips, and the color is perfect if you know you want to wear a lippie, but don’t want to go bold. It goes with honestly everything. I snagged this shade at Nordstrom Rack for $4!

2. Drive Like I Do by Drive Like I Do. If anyone knows me, they know my obsession with the band The 1975. Lately, I have been going back and nonstop listing to the pre-1975 era 1975. If you are new to the fandom and didn’t know about the pre-existing life of Matty and the boys, listen to this album. Right now.

3. Parenthood. I will admit, I am sooooo late to this party. I was recently looking into new shows to watch on Netflix and landed upon Parenthood. It’s something I always wanted to start but for some reason, never did. I am about 6 episodes in, and I am hooked. [Honestly, I’m sitting here counting down the minutes until I can go home and watch more].

4. Strawberry, peach and banana smoothies. I’ve been on a smoothie kick lately. Usually late at night, I crave something sweet like ice cream. But I’ve turned to the alternative that is smoothies. It is cold like ice cream. Kind of tastes like a milkshake. But is so much better for you. And sooo easy to make [thanks to the NutriBullet]. Once I’ve 100% perfected my recipe, maybe I’ll share.

5. Oversized sweaters. Okay, okay. This really isn’t anything too out of the ordinary for me or anyone. But lately, the last few sweaters I’ve purchased I’ve gotten in a L/XL size because, duh, they are soooooo warm and cozy and so perfect to pear with leggings or skinny denim. And, you still look cute and put together and appropriate for [most of] the work environment! So technically, this is a win-win.
