I have what one may call an obsessive personality; everything is my favorite. Here is a short-but-running list of some of those things that I’ve been obsessing over, lately. Most of these things are what “the internets” are calling “basic”, as in “basic white girl”, but I’m 30 freaking years old. I liked these things before the cute little beauty bloggers decided it was cool.
Let’s start with s’mores. Before they bombed your Instagram feed, I was obsessed. Mainly because of toasted mashmallow. I will get, buy, smell, taste ALL THE THINGS that are toasted marshmallow flavored/scented. But the idea of s’mores just makes me happy. It’s so summer, and SO early fall. Which – forget you, Caitlyn Jenner – THAT is my favorite transition in the world.
And on that same note: cotton candy flavored anything – but not actual cotton candy. That just feels like I’m eating hair, and who likes to eat hair?
Hair. I was dying to cut it. Now that I did, I hate how stupid it looks when I pull it back into a ponytail (like a stub sticking off the back of my head), so now I’m dying to grow it out. I’m also looking for a new color/style of color… so, yeah, obsessed would cover it.
Family Feud. Specifically, the ones with Steve Harvey hosting. It’s on Game Show Network all the time, and we can’t get enough.
All of the lights. I will string twinkling lights on my toilet and love it.
Speaking of lights: I love highlighter. Not like the pens, like the makeup. I think it’s called strobing? Or whatever those fancy YouTubers call it these days. Anyway, my favorite highlighter is Jaclyn Hill’s collab with BECCA Cosmetics – Champagne Pop. Yasssssss, gimme all the strobing. I look like a beaming ray of sunlight and I love it so much.
Hot sauce. On everything.
Grapefruit La Croix. I finally said goodbye to soda, and my body thanks me.
Vans. I never understood the power of a plain white pair of Vans, but I do now and I can’t get enough.
Planners. I’ll never use one, but I want to be that girl SO BAD. So I buy them and fill them out once as far out as I can, and then never open them again. Same with journals. I’m really trying with journals, though.
What are some of your favorite things as of late?
