February 2015 Lifestyle Favorites

TV Show: Bar Rescue
Holy shit, do I watch some bad TV. My sister might be the only person who watches worse TV than me, but she has really got me hooked on this show. It's on Spike TV, which basically airs a marathon of the show once a week. A dude comes in and rescues a failing bar, and they are the trashiest people I've ever seen in my entire life. It is such a wonderful way to let your brain rest for an hour watching mindless garbage.

Movie: Fifty Shades of Gray
This was the softcore porn I thought it would be, and I enjoyed it at a dine-in movie theater where I ate pizza & soft pretzel bites with queso while I watched.

Restaurant: The Palm
Best cocktails in Charlotte (and when Ben agrees, you know they're good). We celebrated Valentine's Day here and I had the best lobster tail ever. And also had an espresso martini for dessert.

CandleWinter by Bath & Body Works
This is my favorite all-around winter candle, because it's not limited to only the holidays based on the name or scent (obviously, since it's called 'Winter'). It's described as having notes of pine needles, winter citrus, and white woods.

Book: 'The Girl On The Train' by Paula Hawkins
The new 'Gone Girl'. It's a soon-to-be cult classic that I read in an afternoon. I really enjoyed it and surprised me in some places. Go read it before it's turned into a movie.

iPhone/iPad AppMint

Ben will be so happy that this is my favorite app, considering three months ago he made me download it because "I had no idea where any of my money went". That wasn't entirely true, because I knew almost all of it went to Nordstrom and Starbucks. But in any event, it is a very easy way to keep track of your money and make budgets for literally anything you spend disposable income on.

Song: 'Shut Up & Dance' by Walk The Moon
One of my new favorites songs (and one of the only 5 songs both Ben & I like to listen to on repeat). It is so catchy. Download it immediately & join the party.

Person: Orly
One of my best friends got married in February and I was so excited to be able to celebrate with her. I could not be happier for the new Mr. & Mrs. Elliot. Love you both so much!


  1. Gary says I watch horrible tv too. I love bar rescue. I love seeing how they do after he leaves.

    1. OMG ME TOO. Most of them still do horribly in the long run because they convert back to whatever it was they were doing before.


Thanks for leaving a message! xox
