Season 13

I don't know if any of you follow me on Twitter, but if you do then you know I'm pretty darn obsessed with this season of American Idol. It's SO good! My favorites are Alex, MK, Jena, and Sam and I really don't want to pick a favorite out of my favorites, but if I had to it would definitely be Alex! Ahhh he's so so so good!! Seriously, stop what you're doing right now and listen to him sing in the clip below... it's magical.

Just another reminder about how much I'm dying to get a tattoo...
To one day get a meaningful tattoo, simple ones.

Sochi Olympics 2014... I'll miss you

Sochi opening ceremony
This year I was REALLY into the games! I don't know why... but I seriously watched it everyday and until I feel asleep. I just LOVE it! The winter games make me so happy! I'm probably a little TOO sad they're over.
And I can't believe the next time the winter games are on I'll be a senior in college! What?! Crazy!
(^ They might have a little something to do with why I loved the Olympics so much...)

Have any of you been as into the Olympics this year as I have?

Obsessed with:

Ok, honesty time. I hate when people wear legging, because leggings aren't pants. But I'm guilty! I've been wearing leggings far too often. They're just to comfy! I need to buy some more long sweaters so I can wear them and hopefully look stylish as well.

-The Fault in Our Stars-
I just read it for the first time (I know!!!) and wow! CRAZY good book! I'm sure all of you have read it, so I shouldn't be too concerned with spoilers -- but just in case, I won't say anything about it! Other than I highly recommend ;)

Wanna read it

-The Bling Ring-
...have I said this before? I don't even know why I love it so much. I tell my friends that I love it and they look at me like I have 6 eyes. Do you love it?? Every time I watch it, I find myself looking at Chanel bags online afterwards.


I'll talk about this more in my 'Favorites' post, but I wanted to put it here because I'm BEYOND obsessed with it. It's so amazing and you should check back to see what I write about it later ;)

-Lily Allen-
I know, I know... old news! I can't believe 'LDN' came out in 2006! But seriously she's my jam. She's the kind of music I want to play with the windows down on a fresh spring day with a group of my girlfriends. Feel me? Right now '22' is my favorite! (Woah, so 2008!)
-McDonalds coffee-
Dunkin' Donuts has my favorite coffee and honestly I like the food at Starbucks better than the coffee (sorry!), but a $1 large coffee? Yes please! I've been overdoing it on the McCafe lately.
-Online Shopping-
I finally got a debit card and oh boy. I can't stop! I mean it's not too too hard because I really don't like paying the shipping, but for places like UO or Nordstrom it's nice since I don't live super close to any. And of course Etsy and Amazon!
-The Olympics!-
Obviously! This is probably the biggest one that I'm obsessed with right now. I've literally watched nothing but the Olympics (and American Idol). I never want it to end!!
The Olympic rings and the cauldron for the Olympic flame at the Olympic Park, Sochi
Plus seeing Mark McMorris can't hurt ;)

Share a Snapshot

Because I'm dreaming of warmer temperatures, I thought I'd share this picture from last Summer. It's a picture of the beautiful hotel we stayed at in New Jersey! I'm really missing sitting out in those lounge chairs reading in the warm, warm sun.

Some VERY pretty dresses from Forever 21... did I mention I got to go to the 4 FLOOR one in NYC?! Best. Place. Ever.
I'm so obsessed with this Pinterest board! Who doesn't love perfect studio spaces?!
This bag, this bag! I need it! I obviously can't afford a Chanel bag (ha!), so why not go for a pretty knock-off?

A girl agrees to undergo the techniques that animals go through when doing animal testing -- crazy!

I'm super obsessed with leggings right now. I was never one to think they looked good as pants, but after wearing them as pants one time, I've never gone back to thinking that way! Check out these awesome leggings and tights :)

This shirt from Madewell is perfect -- we all need a basic grey tee, so why not embellish it a little with some city names?

There was a small Full House reunion on Jimmy Fallon
 the other night -- TOO funny!

The cutest little boy teaches college guys how to treat a lady -- this is awesome!!

What's in my backpack

I've never done a 'what's in my bag' post before, but I thought I'd switch it up and do a 'what's in my backpack' post instead! Maybe one day I'll tell you what's in my bag, but to be honest it's really boring and nothing special. I love reading these posts when other people post them, so I thought I'd post one myself! Here we go:
This is the backpack I use -- I got it from Amazon and I LOVE it! It's so big and I get compliments on it all the time. The straps have broken a few times, but I just tie them back together and all is well :)
My pencil case -- It's from Estee Lauder and I think it came as a little gift from when I got perfume a long time ago. I think it's so cute and perfect (and dirty)!

I'm not a reader by any means, but right now I have 3 books in my backpack. Beowulf is the book we're currently reading in English class and Frankenstein is the book I wrote about for my research paper over 2 months ago -- I should probably give that back! And finally, I just checked out The Earth, My Butt, and Other Big Round Things from the library the other day! I'm only about 60 pages into it, but it's really good so far!

These are just some of my school essentials -- my agenda (note how I write in some posts that I'm doing that week!), my calculator, and my German notebook.

My regular notebook -- I honestly just got this so that I could easily decorate the front and make it really pretty... obviously that hasn't happened. Bummer! I should really get on that.

Then I have a side pocket that's strictly used for beauty products -- I have a little heart mirror, lipstick (New York Color in shade 425), eye drops because when Spring comes it kills my eyes, Bath & Body Works hand lotion (Rain Kissed Leaves) that I really need more of because the clay in ceramics dries out my hands so much, and some mascara (Revlon Photo Ready 3D Volume).

And that's all the interesting stuff! I also have a pocket for notecards, my locker key that I never use, a padlock that I never use, and just some folders.
What's in your bag? I'd love to read about it!

Welcome, February! You know what this means... one month closer to warm weather! February is usually the coldest and snowiest month here, and then it gets beautiful in March. So let's do this!
I can't believe how quickly this year is already flying by -- can you?!
