February 2014 [Lifestyle] Favorites

TV Show: House of Cards
I wasn't as obsessed with Season 1 as everyone else in the free world, but Season 2 was amazing. If you've never seen it, get on it. I won't spoil anything here, but you could definitely binge-watch the entire series in a couple of weeks.

Restaurant: Rojo Mexican Restaurant
Newly opened in Birmingham, Michigan & I couldn't be more obsessed with a handful of things on their menu. For one, every Thursday they have $5 margaritas all day - and they are enormous. They also have the most incredible table-side guacamole, which is also only $5 for happy hour. Anyone that wants to go with me on Thursdays, let me know!

Starbucks Drink: Ristretto espresso shots
So one of the baristas at my Starbucks at home noticed that I was having a difficult time perfecting my hot espresso drink, and she recommended that I get my shots ristretto. I'm not entirely sure what it means, but I know that it makes the espresso shots less bitter as there is less water (the shot is a bit shorter). So. Good.

Candle: Pink Passion Fruit
Bath & Body Works has their spring candles all out and ready to go, and their market fresh candles are some of my favorite. One of their new ones this season is Pink Passion Fruit, which is described as "vine-ripened passion fruit, guava and sugarcane."

Song: 'All of Me' - John Legend
I haven't been this obsessed with a song in a really long time. It's been on repeat for the entire month & then some. It's such a beautiful song about a relationship (I'm also pretty obsessed with John Legend & Chrissy Teigen together).

Website: Buzzfeed
Ask Ben or my sister how often I'm sending them Buzzfeed articles to read or quizzes to take. Scrolling through the site has become part of my daily routine. Obviously, who doesn't want to know 'what city you should actually live in'?

iPhone/iPad App: Frozen Free Fall
I never played Candy Crush, but apparently this is the same thing except Frozen themed. It's addicting - so you should obviously download it. Sven & Olaf are a great bonus.

Person: Ben
Promise not to get too sappy on you, but I was able to fly down to Durham for Valentine's Day to see Ben and he just made it the perfect celebratory weekend. Once a month / every six weeks is not nearly often enough for me to see him, but it makes the time we do spend together so special.

Can you believe we're already in March?! Insane, especially since the weather isn't cooperating. What are some things you loved this month that I should check out? Let me know!


  1. I'm going to Durham this weekend!! What should I do??

    1. I need to start getting notifications on my comments because I JUST saw this! :(
