May 2013 [Non-Beauty] Favorites

TV Show: The West Wing
New Netflix obsession. Already halfway through this show (on season 4 of 7), and I couldn't love Martin Sheen or Rob Lowe more. Also, Rizzo from Grease is President Bartlet (Martin Sheen)'s wife. Mind. Blown. If you've never gotten into The West Wing (and staring at Rob Lowe for hours on end), you probably should.

Movie: The Great Gatsby
Even if it didn't get as deep into the book as I (and every other literature lover) would have liked, it was an awesome movie with a killer soundtrack. Toby McGuire isn't my favorite actor, but he didn't ruin it. And of course, Leo D is an amazing Jay Gatsby.

Sweet Food: Special K Pastry Crisps in Berry Streusel
I love these things, and it is the newest flavor. They're like healthier pop-tarts & I'm a sucker for anything berry.

Savory Food: Crab Wantons
I've been having sushi a lot recently, and crab wontons are my jam. They are so amazing, especially with a sweet citrus sauce (which I then later dip my sushi in. Nom).

Restaurant: Slice
I went with Ben to this pizza place in Birmingham (Alabama for all my friends at home), and it was really similar to Mellow Mushroom in terms of gourmet-style pizzas. I really appreciated that I didn't have to ask for thin crust because the thickness was just right. I recommend the White Shadow pizza - top notch.

Starbucks Drink: I haven't changed anything in my drink order, but the other day I went in and ordered a venti iced green tea with half the sweetener. On a super hot day, it is a must.

Candle: Renew & Refresh by White Barn
This is such a refreshing candle (yes, like the name says). The description on the bottom of the candle says "refresh the scent and ambience of your home with this blend of jasmine, fresh air, and a touch of mint."

Song: 'Maybe It Was Memphis' Cover - Danielle Bradbury (The Voice)
I don't watch The Voice, but this girl is literally incredible. Her voice is literally so incredible, that I've had this song on repeat since I downloaded it. I highly recommend you do the same.

This is a joke. This is my least favorite website right now, but it will be my life for the next 2 months.

Person: Alex
My spirit animal & the best wedding date on the planet. Having her as a bigger part of my life this past year (and especially this last semester) has been so great, and I couldn't have asked for a better partner in crime. I love you to pieces, Alexandra Elaine - you're a rockstar :)
