2. kind of a weird thing to be loving, but these pencils are too cute! i wish i saw them before school ended because then maybe i'd like doing my homework! (HAHA just kidding, who likes homework??)

3. oddly enough, i'm also loving pretty tapes like this. the other day i went to Five Below and got super cute tape -- so i made my own envelope, wrote a letter, taped it together, and sent it to my friend!

4. this Tumblr is so nice.. it makes me want to cuddle in bed listening to Mumford & Sons with a cup of tea :)
5. and lastly, speaking of maxis, i'm loving this outfit. those shoes, that skirt. perfect!

i want to share with you this awesome app that i got! i'm not much of a runner AT ALL, but sadly i have to admit that i've been having some body issues lately. i really hate when girls put themselves down, so it's crazy that i'm putting myself down! in Spring, i also bought a couple bathing suits in a a little bit of a smaller size, hoping that it would make me exercise more.
anyway, i got the app Couch to 5k! it's supposed to turn you from a couch potato to a 5k runner in 8 weeks! i'm really hoping i stick to it! i don't know if i'll be able to do a 5k... that'll probably take me years... but i'm happy i'm doing it! i can't really say much because i'm only on the second day, but i do know that after the first time i did it last night, i was really excited to do it again this morning!

you should definitely try it! it's a great app!
also, of course, happy Memorial day!

obsessed with:

1. one of my favorite bloggers, Kallie, has the CUTEST apartment EVER. and it's in NYC! yes please!!

2. Degrassi -- nothing new, but recently i went to Target and they had season 10 there for only $4! so.. you can probably guess what i've been doing the past couple days ;)
3. Zoella, on YouTube! i mentioned her a little in this post, but i have to tell you more. she's SO adorable and she's British and she has the cutest room and i can't get enough. here's just a video of hers that i picked at random because it's so hard to choose:
4. also, this song is super old, but i absolutely love it! The Best Day of my Life by Jesse McCartney:

5. Sims! hehe.. it's kind of ridiculous. i got the game a couple of weeks ago and holy cow. i can't stop playing! i'm sure all of you have already played it in the past. what can i say?

6. lusting over Summer dresses -- i can't wait for the amazing feeling of Summer!

Lemonade to Order Dress

Forever 21

Shop Shabby Apple for casual and day dresses for women. We offer a great selection of vintage-inspired dresses and other stylish clothes for women.

7. World of Jenks -- i always loved this show as well, but just a couple days ago i started watching season 2, and holy cow. so good. he lives with 3 people over the course of a year and sees what they go through in their day-to-day life. he lives with Chad, an autistic guy, D-Real, a dancer trying to make the city of Oakland, CA a safer place, and Kaylin, a girl who  just moved across the country to live in NYC and she has had cancer twice. you should definitely watch it HERE!

8. this You Are Beautiful bag -- love!!
You Are Beautiful Bag

9. this reading tent! i would watch movies in this all night, forsure.

10. this Tumblr -- so cute to see all the wedding ideas :)

hopefully you're all having a great long weekend! the pool opens today, but it's 60 degrees here, so no pool for us ;)

Zach Sobiech story

i'm sure you've heard this story already (and if not, watch it! such an inspiration and so sad to hear.)
i can't stop listening to this song -- so good! Zach will surely be missed by many.

(i love this outfit!)

Loving: the fact that it's getting warmer out and the days of school are winding down :)
Thinking about: college, mostly. i know, i know. it's kind of early. but i've wanted to be an art therapist for a while now, and i'm really glad that i've got that set, but my dream school at the moment doesn't offer it! i so badly want to go to the University of Rhode Island... but then i start to worry that it's too far away, but i don't have a car.. so does it matter if it's far away anyway.. but i need to get away from PA, but i'll miss everything. but they don't have what i want to major in.. but could i just to psychology instead? but I DON'T KNOW.
Watching: most of the shows i watch have had their finale this past week, so there isn't much to watch! on Netflix, however, i have a strange addiction to Keeping Up With The Kardashians and Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami. i think i watched close to 4 seasons in 2 days..
Listening to: the Gatsby soundtrack!
Working on: not getting so nervous about petty things. it's always been a problem and it's really getting irritating now.
Wishing: it was Summer! because, duh, who doesn't?

*thanks again to Danielle from Sometimes Sweet for this post idea!

{some people from the art department went on a field trip to DC for the day a little while ago. so fun!}
