March 2014 [Lifestyle] Favorites

TV Show: Breaking Bad
Ben and I are currently diving into season 4 of Breaking Bad, and holy anxiety. I feel like I'm going to throw up during half the scenes; not because of blood or anything gory, but because I'm literally on the edge of my seat. I'm not emotionally equipped for a show like this - but it truly is incredible.
Movie: Gravity
I rented this movie on iTunes on Friday night, because I realized I hadn't seen a single Oscar-nominated movie this year. I thought this one might not be as good as everyone thought, considering it was only 2 actors the entire time. But if you're only going to have to actors, Sandra Bullock and George Clooney are definitely the two to have. These two absolutely killed it, and I don't know how Sandra Bullock didn't win the Oscar.

Sweet Food: Frozen Thin Mints
Holy crap. Not that this is a revelation to anyone, but frozen thin mints are legitimately like crack. There is no such thing as too many until you feel like you might throw up from eating an entire box in one sitting. So, so, good. Also, the ultimate diet ruiner.
Savory Food: Granny Smith Pizza from Pop's in Durham
Oh my god, this pizza y'all. It has an olive oil base (so no red sauce), 3 different kinds of cheeses, and granny smith apples baked in. It is amazing. Not that many of you are going to be in the Durham area soon, but if you are, that pizza is a must.

Restaurant: Blu Seafood & Bar, Durham NC
So Ben and I celebrated our anniversary a couple of weeks ago (a little early since we won't actually get to spend our anniversary together), and we ate at Blu Seafood & Bar in Durham. The drinks were out of this world, and the food was awesome too. It's not much on the outside, but definitely a good little hidden gem.

Book: Private LA by James Patterson
I've been a little turned off by James Patterson's books recently because it's clear when he co-authors books with people that they're writing it & he's slapping his name on it so it gets bought. However, his Private series (which is co-authored) is one that I enjoy & I think that Private LA might be the best one in the series thus far.

Starbucks Drink: Back to my iced espresso, except now I'm getting it ristretto & it's great.
Candle: Pomelo Grapefruit
A spring candle! Even though the weather isn't cooperating, I'm burning this. We're in March, damnit! It's described as 'the ultimate citrus lover's delight - a blend of tart grapefruit, sweet pomelo and juicy orange.'

Song: 'All of Me' - John Legend (Tiesto Remix)
I like this song so much that the remix version of it is my favorite this month. Download it immediately.

iPhone/iPad App: Afterlight
It is my favorite photo-editing app. It's only filters but it has a lot of natural looking filters that aren't as glaring as the ones on Instagram. I got it a while ago when it was free, but I believe it costs $.99 now. Totally worth it!

Can you believe how fast 2014 is flying? We're in April already!
