March 2013 [Non-Beauty] Favorites

Yadda, yadda, yadda. Same spiel, another month has gone by so fast. But seriously, it has. I graduate in a month. One month. That's insane! Anyway, here are some things I've been loving in March!

TV Show: The Carrie Diaries
In the spirit of not boring everyone, I won't talk about how much I love 24 again, even though that's basically all I've been watching all month. I'll talk about my surprise love for The Carrie Diaries on The CW. I loathed myself for even wanting to watch this show because I really thought it was going to be horrible, but I think the writers have done an incredible job showing where Carrie came from (you see her drink her first cosmo and get her first pair of Manolos, so you know I'm sold).

Movie: I seriously don't think I've watched a movie all month because I've been watching 24 nonstop. I wish I was kidding... actually, no I don't. Jack Bauer and I are involved.

Sweet Food:
Thin Mints
My Girl Scout cookie order came in a few weeks ago so... Thin Mints. All Day. Erryday.

Savory Food: Apple & Feta Salad
I found a really easy salad recipe on Pinterest that I'm obsessed with: lettuce, chopped apple slices, tiny pieces of bacon (I used turkey bacon), feta cheese, walnuts, and then I topped it off with Panera's Fuji Apple dressing.

Restaurant: Which Wich
I've never been to one of these before, but a new one just opened up in Tuscaloosa and I really liked it! I got a 'Grinder', for anyone who has one around them and wants a recommendation.

Starbucks Drink: Espresso, espresso, espresso. I'm boring.

Candle: Bath & Body Works 'Market Peach' 
This is heaven in a candle. Seriously. I'm not even that crazy about peach scents generally, but after all the hype about this candle, I checked it out.

Song: Alicia Keys - 'Girl On Fire'
I have been listening to this song on repeat all month (the version with Nicki Minaj in it). I don't know why it took me so long to download it, so sorry for being a little late to the 'Licia game.

Website: Zappos.com
I forget how amazing Zappos is sometimes (especially when you have a VIP Zappos account... oops). Free next day shipping and no tax? What's better than that? They also have as easy of returns as Nordstrom does, which is saying something because y'all know how much I love my Nordstrom.

Person: My Mom
As I'm in the midst of ending a very big chapter in my life and starting a new one very quickly, my life has become somewhat of a whirlwind and has been much more stressful than I could have imagined. Throughout this process, my mom has been invaluable at keeping me sane, walking me through things that I've struggled with, and in general, being an incredible support system to me. I know that's what parents are for, but she has gone above and beyond what I ever could have asked for. I love you Mom, even when I'm a crazy, inconsolable, bitch.

What have some of your March favorites been? Also, I'm dying to see the new Oz movie - has anyone seen it? It's on my list and hopefully makes it into my April Favorites!
