Why? This is one thing I really shouldn’t be loving. It makes me sick thinking that I willingly spent $78 on a lacy tank top. NO ONE needs to be spending that kind of money on something so simple. But with housewares, trinkets, and clothing so cute, how do you possibly resist? I know I can’t.
2. A Stolen Life by Jaycee Dugard
Why? I had heard of Jaycee’s story before I knew she had a book. Abducted in 1991 at the age of eleven, Jaycee spent eighteen years living with her captors before she was finally rescued. This book is written autobiographically and the majority of it is about her time spent living in the backyard of Phillip and Nancy Gariddo, her kidnappers. Dugard is not a writer by any means, but if you can look past her simplistic writing style, her story is truly amazing.
3. Rainy days
Why? To me, there is nothing more calming than laying in bed, reading a book, and hearing the rain pour onto the roof. I’m not a huge fan of thunderstorms, but rain itself is one of the most exquisite things, in my book. I especially welcome the rain in the summer. It gives me a nice break from the heat, since my house is rarely air conditioned.
Why? Living with my boyfriend, it is often difficult for me to put things in their places and keep them there. Nearly everyday, I find myself cleaning my room, putting controllers, colognes, books, what have you back in their proper place, only to realize that everything is in complete disarray by bedtime. I have tried countless times to force my boyfriend to clean up after himself, and he typically obliges for a day or two and then it all goes to hell again. So, for those rare few days where everything is in its place, I find myself really savoring the organization. It also doesn’t help that I have way too many things for way too little of a space, so my room tends to look cluttered very quickly. I suppose I could always get rid of some stuff, but I don’t think I could truly embrace the minimalist lifestyle.
Why? When it comes to TV, there are two categories that trump all others for me: reality and game shows. Needless to say, this is why I love all things Survivor, Amazing Race, Big Brother, etc. The most recent season of Survivor just ended on Wednesday, and I’m a little bit heartbroken. I love nothing more than watching people compete in challenges and the like, so I’m kind of wondering what to do with myself TV-wise until another season comes along.
Why? Call me cheap, but I love a good deal. That’s why I love Payless. I’m really not a shoe person, but Payless gets me every time. I always find something cute there, and I never pay more than I think something’s worth. Plus, I think I can afford to be a little frugal at times, especially when I’m buying $80 tanks.
What are you guys loving right now?
