august favorites

A few of my favorite things during the month of August!

LA Candy by lauren conrad. this book was perfect to read while relaxing on vacation.  

Doodle Buddy app. i can't stop doodling.

NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in dark brown. randomly bought this in order to get a BOGO deal. glad i did, because i use it all the time now!

What Makes You Beautiful music video. a fun video i made with my cousins while up north. it makes me laugh every time i watch it.

Cranium: Whoonu game. i'm not really a game person, but i really like this one. i played it up north and it was a lot of fun.

Teddy Grahams - Honey. my new favorite snack food.

We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together by Taylor Swift. i love this song. it's definitely a different sound from her, but i still like it. At the same time, i hope the rest of her new album sounds more like her old stuff. Can't wait to hear it!

Raspberry Lemonade Gatorade. just discovered this flavor and i love it!

Milk Chocolate Covered Cherries from Cherry Republic. we brought these back from our trip up north. i don't even like cherries, but these are delicious!

Pretty Little Liars. i literally dropped my jaw while watching the summer finale this week. OHMYGOD. i'm still processing it.

I had the best time up north! I love being up there, and it's definitely one of my favorite places. It's literally paradise. I went paddle boarding, played putt putt, went on bike rides, played games, soaked up the sun and did plenty of relaxing. I'm already counting down to the next trip!

Last summer, I made this video of our week up north to share with family and friends. I loved making the video, so I decided to make another one from this year's trip. Watch that video here. Enjoy!

dan in real life

One of my favorite movies to watch during the summer is Dan In Real Life. I especially like to watch it before going Up North with my family because part of the movie reminds me of the time we spend up there. Just like the movie, my whole family (cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandma) takes a vacation together at the cottage on the lake. We do big group activities, play lots of games, and explore the town. If you haven't seen it yet, Dan In Real Life is a great movie and I recommend it to everyone!

Current obsessions: 
We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together - TAYLOR SWIFT
What Makes You Beautiful - ONE DIRECTION

sounds of summer

I have been adding songs to my summertime playlist all summer long, and it is almost complete. By the end of the summer, i'm always able to use this playlist as a soundtrack for our trip up north. I listen to it on the car ride and all week long while relaxing on the lake.  It's not completely done, but here is my summertime 2012 playlist. It includes the songs i've been listening to all summer as well as some favorite summer songs from previous years. I'm very excited to be using this playlist on my vacation in just a few days!
