Wearing Reading Eating | 04/15

As Timbaland would say in that Aliyah song, it's been a long time, shouldn't have left you...without a blog post to read? Ok that was horrible! But it HAS been FOREVER since I posted! Unfortunately my final semester of university just ate up all of my time. But I am thrilled (with the exception of one upcoming exam) to be done! Now I'm in the frustrating limbo of job hunting. However, it does mean that I now have time again to dedicate to blogging. I thought I would come back with an update post of sorts and let you know what I've been wearing, reading, and eating lately...

While I certainly don't wear the same thing everyday, I have been gravitating toward some staple pieces as of late. Number one would definitely have to be my Wildfox baggy beach jumpers. Seriously. so. soft. I've basically been living in them.

And Dior nail polish. The brush, the formula, the colors, just awesome. Current favorite: Diorette.

I was extremely grateful that my last semester has not been reading-intensive and I was able to enjoy reading again over the past few months. I find reading a few chapters before bed to be extremely relaxing and enjoyable, so I've managed to go through a couple novels over the past month or so.

I read Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov, which, despite the subject matter, is one of the most beautifully written books I've read in awhile. It is a true classic and I highly recommend it.

After Lolita, I wanted something that was a quick, easy read, so I picked up Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn. It wasn't quite as good as Gone Girl, but still worth reading. I'll definitely be reading Dark Places, another by Flynn which will star Charlize Theron in the movie adaptation.

Currently, I'm reading The Basic Eight by Daniel Handler, which as I discovered halfway through the book is actually also the author of the Series of Unfortunate Events books that I loved as a kid. This is another fairly quick read but a really enjoyable one. As I'm almost done this one, I've pulled out Mindy Kaling's Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? to read next. I'm absolutely obsessed with the Mindy Project (it's seriously hilarious!), so I can't wait to read her book.

I know this is going to sound so boring, but I've been loving two really simple snacks lately: oatmeal and apple slices with peanut butter. I'm going to do a food-related post about my favorite healthy snacks soon so look out for that!

I recently picked up the Celestial Seasonings herbal fruit tea sampler pack and I'm in love! All the flavors are delicious hot and cold, but my favorite so far has got to be the "true blueberry." I swear it tastes just like a blueberry crumble!

I've also been addicted to Songza, an awesome free music app with hundreds of perfectly curated playlists. Go check it out!

What have you been into lately?
