Right now I'm a little bit obsessed with my Former Life... 2008 wasn't my easiest year, but it was definitely one of my best: I started it off in Boston, moved back to New York, met Boyfriend, and began my first semester of grad school. You'll forgive me if my TiLTs are a bit nostalgic or old school.
Pretzel M&M's ♥ I can never spell "pretzel" correctly the first time and I didn't even LIKE this candy the first time I tried it, but now I can't stop. They're the most perfect combination of salty and sweet and they are going to make me gain ten pounds.
Law & Order: SVU ♥ So addicting. I'd never paid much attention to the Law & Order series or it's spinoffs, but Boyfriend got me hooked on SVU when I visited him in October. I found all ten seasons on Netflix Instant and my new life goal is to watch every. single. episode. Aw yeah.
Free time ♥ Not the time I waste procrastinating on a paper, or the extra hour of sleep I get because I'm avoiding reading for class. When everything is done and I can fluff up my pillows, light a candle, and read my book (or watch SVU ;) ).
Tretorn's "Skerry Vinter" boots ♥ I've lived in a snowy city for my entire life but haven't owned a decent pair of winter boots since I realized that the "duck boots" my parents kept making me wear were ugly. Last winter I spent over $100 on a giant pair of Sorel boots, only to have them sit in the back of my closet, still in their box. I finally convinced myself that just having winter boots wasn't enough - I needed winter boots that I would wear. Enter Tretorn's Skerry boots. They are adorable, reasonably priced rubber rain boots with a fuzzy lining and I highly recommend them. Having waterproof feet is one of the best things that has ever happened to me!
Little Favorites ♥ My new header! ♥ Having a weekly schedule ♥ "Holiday" makeup - shimmery eyes and pretty pink lips ♥ Long morning walks that leave me comfortably sore ♥ New-to-me delicious foods (can you believe I hated hummus until recently!?) ♥ A warm bed and cozy lights at the end of a long day ♥ HP & The Deathly Hallows, part I ♥ The relief and blessing of good health ♥ Theme nights with my favorite girls ♥ Rediscovering Animal Crossing!
