January 2013 [Non-Beauty] Favorites

Since when does January fly by so fast? Can't believe it's already time for my January non-beauty favorites!

TV Show: Downton Abbey
I don't have enough good things to say about Downton Abbey. If you don't watch it, you need to start. Season 1 is on Netflix and I'm pretty sure Season 2 is online somewhere. The episodes that have aired of Season 3 (the current season) are on PBS.com. Maggie Smith is so fantastic in it, she is my absolute favorite. That being said, the most recent couple of episodes? WTF. WTF. WTF. I won't spoil it for you but holy crap.

Movie: Catfish: The Documentary
I used to be so confused by this show and then Emily & I watched an episode together. Now I'm addicted. I decided to watch the documentary behind the TV show and holy crap, was it worth it. Regardless if you watch the show or not, the documentary is incredible. Spend the $2.99 and rent it on Amazon ASAP. Nev, I love you.

Sweet Food: Brach's Candy Conversation Hearts
OMG. Emily & I nommed on an entire bag of these much quicker than I care to share. I saw them at Target and had to get them. Little did I know until I got home that I accidentally picked up the "Spanish Conversation Hearts" by mistake, so we had a fabulous time trying to figure out what 'zzzz' & 'tom' meant.

Savory Food: Sweet Potato Waffle Fries
Emily was getting these on the reg before I finally broke down and was like 'let me try one'. Now I'm obsessed and I don't even like sweet potatoes (the same way I hate mushrooms and whenever she is cooking them I ask her what smells so good). Either way, they're amazing, even though I always semi-burn them in our oven.

Restaurant: Shake Shack
Since I'm broke now, I've really tried to be good about eating in. However, I would be remiss in not mentioning my first Shake Shack experience in New York. So good, so worth every penny. Get the strawberry shake.

Starbucks Drink: Since it's back in the 60s in Alabama, I'm back to drinking iced espresso (3 shots of espresso over ice with 3 pumps of pumpkin spice syrup... yup, my Starbucks still has pumpkin spice).

Candle: Winter Night by White Barn
Emily & I are dreading the day that this candle runs out because it smells so good in our apartment. The description says "a cozy blend of fir needles, cypress, clove buds, and incense possesses the mystery of a long winter's night." I know I've talked about this candle on here before; it reminds me of winter in Michigan.

Song: One Direction - Kiss You
I'm scared to even know how many times Holly & I jammed out to this song in Maryland over MLK weekend. You just can't not be happy listening to this song. Not even ashamed who knows I listen to 1D because the world hasn't had a quality boy band since NSYNC (Jonas Brothers, you did not count).

Website: Pinterest.com
I go through Pinterest phases where sometimes I'm never on it, and sometimes I'm on it all the time. Right now, I'm on it all the time. Follow my boards! (http://pinterest.com/jlfelicity)

Person: Holly
I went to go visit Holly in Maryland a few weeks ago and I am missing her like crazy already. She has been there for me through so much the last few months and it's impossible to not have a blast when we're together. Follow her on twitter (http://twitter.com/hollysaysheyy) & YouTube channel (http://youtube.com/hollysayshey). Love you to pieces, Holl (the struggle is SO real, as is karma).

As an aside, half of these favorites started with "so Emily & I"... guess you could say I'm a fan of my roommate.

Those are my January 2013 non-beauty favorites! Trying not to spend money after this month buuuuut... is there anything out there I should know about? A new TV show my 3Litis can glom onto? Let me know in a comment!


  1. I always love reading yes, and YES to your show repertoire: Revenge! Start it immediately. xx
