What I'm Loving in May 2015


Room, by Emma Donoghue - Getting back to a healthy reading habit. My goal is fill up my bookshelf with books that I've read in 2015. Last month I read The Girl on the Train. A lot of people were raving about this novel, and although I thought it was a good read, it was certainly no Gone Girl (the original is the best). This month I'm reading Room and it is quite intriguing so far, even though it's told from the perspective of a five-year-old boy.

Bar Earrings - Keep in mind that my ears aren't even pierced and that I'm perfectly content with that. But seeing that I work as a jewelry stylist, I've come across a lot of fun pieces recently, and bar earrings have caught my eye. Ear crawlers and bar pearls are super cute too. What do you think? You can find all of these on Shopbop, by the way.

Milk Bottle Flowers - A quick way to spruce up your decor is by adding some floral accents. And, of course, you can put your flowers in regular glass vases, but consider placing them in milk bottles and other ceramic containers for something a bit more eclectic. Totally loving this right now.

Backpacks - It's not like I have some place special to go, and I'm certainly not in school anymore, but I've been really attracted to backpacks recently. I just think they're so cute and hella functional. Backpacks on Shopbop like this Zac Posen everyday style is perfectly designed with a beautiful top handle. Buy it for me?

Younger TV Show - Younger is a show on TV Land that originated from a book and created by the same person who did Sex and the City. It's about a single mom who re-enters the workforce at age 40 and poses as a 26-year-old. We watch her learn how to tweet, move to Brooklyn because it's hip, and do Crossfit for the first time. Although some aspects aren't super true to the life of a 20-something (we're not always on our phones), it's all quite funny.

Ginger...in everything - I've always been a big fan of things with ginger, but I've recently expanded my love of the spice by falling in love with its many uses and forms. I love it in ginger beer, ginger cookies, ginger tea, ginger ale fizz, ginger scrub, Moscow mules...you name it.
