Lately: May 2016

June already?! This is going to be a busy month, but I’m excited to see new places, catch up with old friends, and be a bridesmaid to one of my childhood friends! But first, a little May recap…

♦ Doing: Too much shopping. It’s too easy to justify!
♦ Drinking: Lots of ice water to stay cool!
♦ Eating: S’mores Oreos.
♦ Loving: That it finally warmed up!
♦ Hating: That my jeans feel tight (see above).
♦ Listening: To Revival, still, but mostly because I’m going to see Selena Gomez in concert Saturday!!
♦ Reading: Good Housekeeping.
♦ Wanting: Some NYX liquid lipsticks. Priya tweeted me some recommendations, so I’m hoping I can find them at Target.
♦ Watching: The Nice Guys, with Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe. Go see it! It’s such a fun throwback movie, and that action scenes are surprisingly good.
♦ Wearing: My favorite blue and white blouse. It’s a couple years old and still hasn’t made it to the blog!
♦ Wishing: I didn’t have student loans. Also, that I had brownies.

P.S. I published my first blog post SIX years ago today!! I can’t believe I’m still doing this…definitely the longest I’ve ever stuck with a hobby, and it’s crazy to see how much my blog — and the blogging community — have changed in this time. Thank you for all the kind words, comments, tweets, etc. over the years! 💖

Lately: April 2016

PHL Blog Connect

Picture via Kendall’s Instagram — the PHL Blogger’s Blog Connect Conference was too fun!

Doing: Very little shopping this month! Yay?
Drinking: Iced citrus green tea lattes from Starbucks. So so delicious — I can’t help but order one when I go to Target.
Eating: Breakfast burritos from Wawa. Thanks for stepping up the breakfast game.
Loving: How late the sun stays up. Come on, summer! We’re almost there.
Hating: Pollen.
Listening: To some throwback Latin pop/rock. Rediscovering your music library from high school is a wonderful thing.
Reading: I read a James Patterson book, The Beach House, on a rainy day, because that’s what James Patterson is for. Next up? Mindy Kaling’s Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?, which I picked up at The Blog Connect book swap.
Wanting: More plants in my house! I bought a little one at the grocery store last week, and now I want more. Between carpeting and two dogs, though, it’s probably not the best idea.
Watching: Nashville! I fell a bit behind, and I hope they can get at least one more season from ABC.
Wearing: My “He Votado Hoy” sticker. Happy primary day!
Wishing: This entire outfit would appear in my closet.

Lately: January 2016(!)

Happy 2016! It’s already week 2 of the New Year — craziness. I’ll probably blog about my resolutions/goals for this year (and recap 2015) later this week if you feel like reading yet another one of those posts.

Drinking: Water! Trying to start the year on the right foot.
Eating: Out way too often! Stopped by one of my favorites, DanDan (16th St. between Sansom and Walnut), with friends last week.
Loving: Being able to spend time working and hanging out with some blogger babes.
Hating: That it’s not spring yet.
Listening: I found my CD collection from high school, and popped Mi Sangre by Juanes into my car the other day. Almost 12 years later, and that album is still perfection.
Reading: Not enough. I’m planning on joining Emma Watson’s feminist book club with some friends, so I need to get myself a library card.
Wanting: To win the Powerball. I’d settle for just a million though. 😉
Watching: Gilmore Girls. But we’re on season 1 now!
Wearing: My flannel button up and cashmere sweater.
Wishing: It was Friday!

What is everyone up to?
