    April 2019 Favorites

    April flew by in a flash and I guess because of that I only have a few favorites this month. Of these few favorites a few of them have to do with entertainment, one is a skincare item, and one is an experience. Let’s get all the entertainment things out of the way first. This is technically from March, but I didn’t watch it until April so that’s why it’s an April favorite. On The Tonight Show, Jimmy Fallon and a few members of The Roots filmed themselves singing “In the Still of the Night” under the Brooklyn Bridge as an homage to doo-wop. I loved it! Next up, a…

    5 Favorite Sandra Bullock Movies

    The other day Chrissy Teigen tweeted that she has this thing where she purposely won’t watch movies that are super popular. Just something in her won’t allow her to do it. I think she even joked that she needs to see a therapist for her desire to “withhold joy” from her life. Funny thing is, I can be the same way! Yes, I love movies and tv and if it’s something I really want to see then I will see it. But a lot of times when I haven’t gotten to see something and then everyone is talking about how amazing it is – it loses its appeal to me. It’s…

    January 2019 Favorites

    This month has both felt like it’s flown by and dragged on. I can’t believe it’s the last day of January, but at the same time the holidays and winter break feels like ages ago. Anyone else feel that way? As with the end of every month, I’m sharing my monthly favorites today. Let’s get started! First off, Outlander came back for season 4 back in November, but I didn’t catch up until this month. I’m still 3 episodes behind, but the season finale has just aired over the weekend. Now I need to decide if I want to hurry and watch those 3 episodes or if I want to savor…

    Rent: Live (Sort of)

    Did you catch Rent: Live on Sunday night? I watched it but since it didn’t end until 11 I wasn’t able to get a post up recapping my thoughts on it until today. So why do I have “Sort of” in the title? Well, when the show started there was a little caption in the corner that said “pre-recorded” and I wondered why. Was there something about the opening number that warranted it to be pre-recorded? After doing a quick search online I found out that one of the lead actors, Brennin Hunt, who plays Roger broke his foot the night before at the final dress rehearsal! It would later be…

    December 2018 Favorites + Looking Back on 2018

    Can you believe it’s the very last day of 2018?! I honestly can’t. This year went by in the blink of an eye and I need time to slow down. I thought about doing a 2018 recap and include some of my favorite posts from the year, but that would be very time consuming to go through the entire year to pick out my top posts. I used to do that but it would just take forever and I always felt like I wasn’t doing my recap justice nor paying proper homage to these favorite posts and moments. So I’ve decided not to do that this year, but I will…

    Hallmark Christmas Movies I Would & Have Watched Multiple Times

    If you know me, it’s no secret that I have a mild obsession with Hallmark movies. Sure they are predictable and many of them follow a similar formula – especially the romantic comedy ones. But I don’t care, I will still watch all the movies! The Christmas movies are especially my favorite. Some are much better than others. Some I watch and I really love and some I’m like eh, that was just okay. This season of Christmas movies on the channel started back at the end of October so I’ve already seen quite a few and there are still more to come leading up to the holiday. Some of…

    November 2018 Favorites

    It’s the last day of November! How?! I felt like it was the beginning of November when Thanksgiving was around the corner and now we’re at the very end. As usual, I’ve rounded up some things I loved this month that made it into my monthly favorites. First up, I know everyone goes crazy for the Starbucks holiday cups but they really are so pretty. Here are shots of 2 of the designs. They just make me happy! Speaking about holiday, I put up my Christmas tree the weekend before Thanksgiving. Usually I wait until the day after but I was busy all Thanksgiving weekend so I did it early. I…

    New TV Shows I’m Loving

    Every fall I look forward to checking out the new shows on TV. Some I really look forward to and they aren’t as good as I hoped, some live up to expectations, and some exceed expectations. I’ve rounded up 4 new shows this season that I’ve been watching, loving, and fit in to that category of exceeding expectations. First up, Magnum, P.I.. This reboot of the Tom Selleck show modernizes the story of Hawaii’s favorite private investigator. It’s brought to viewers from the same producer as Hawaii Five-0. I never watched the original show, but I know of it. My mom used to watch it back when it was on tv…

    September 2018 Favorites

    I can’t believe it’s Monday already. Weekends go by way too fast. I had a full weekend, but it wasn’t super busy and I got a decent amount of sleep both Friday and Saturday night so I don’t know why I was so tired all weekend! Anyway, I can’t believe it’s already Monday and I also don’t know how it’s October!? I have a few favorites from September to share. I watched a lot of stuff on Netflix and Amazon in September for some reason. Amongst all the things my two favorites hands-down were Jack Ryan and To All the Boys I Loved Before. The new take on the Jack Ryan stories…

    July 2018 Favorites

    When this post goes live I should be sitting at the airport waiting to board my flight for vacation! My posts the next few days have already been written and scheduled, but as long as my hotel internet is working I should have my first travel post up this weekend! I’ll be gone for about 2 weeks, so look out for exciting travel posts! The month of July was super busy with family visiting, moving, short trips to Baltimore and historical Philadelphia, and seeing Taylor Swift in concert. With being so busy I don’t have a lot of favorites to share so this post will be short! The first favorite…
