Friday Favorite | Current Fragrance

Finding the perfect perfume is a bit of a daunting task for me. Not always, but a few times I’ve purchased a fragrance that I adore on the shelf, but cannot seem to stomach a few weeks later [please tell me I’m not the only one this happens to]!

With that said, I’m happy to report that I’ve been committed to a perfume for about three months now!  Spritzing it across my neck has become one of my favorite parts of the morning…

Tomorrow I turn 27. #scary

This year, I’ve taken my birthday as an opportunity to step back and kind of reevaluate my life. For the past few months, I’ve been thinking about where I am, where I thought I would be, and where I still want to go…

Happy New Year – 2015!

Happy New Year, friends!

It’s been a wild week since Christmas. I couldn’t be any more grateful for having off from work – it has allowed me to enjoy some true quality time with all of the people that I love – hence, being MIA on here since Blogmas. I have so many wonderful pictures and memories from the past two weeks that I want to share on my blog before I get back to work on Monday…but that will have to be my weekend project.

Today, I want to take a brief moment to recap 2014, New Year’s Eve, and my hope’s for 2015…

What I’m Watching…

I would say that I have a slight addicition to YouTube. I find myself going on binges for hours watching the most random things. Sometimes, you come across some really moving people who put out videos that you can’t help but share – which brings me to this post! Below are some of my personal favorite YouTube videos from this week. I encourage you to watch them all, each is unique and special in it’s own way. Enjoy! XO

1) First up: My boyfriend, Michael Minelli. You may have seen me post some of his videos before, but he just released a new cover this week and it is truly phenomenal. I know that many people are loving Bruno Mars current single, Locked Out of Heaven, but give this one a shot- it has a fun twist to it! 🙂

2) This video is brought to you by the beautiful Noor Tagouri. I began following her on Twitter a while ago because I was intrigued by her intellect and ever-present drive. She is only 19 years old and one of the most inspiring individuals I’ve ever come across. I give Noor so much credit for putting herself out there in every way possible to achieve her dreams. I have a feeling we will all be seeing her on our television sets in the very near future! #LetNoorShine.

3) Google released this video yesterday  – Zeitgeist 2012: Year In Review. What an incredibly moving piece! 2012 was a huge year for everyone, and I love the way that they were able to capture it all in a respectful & appropriate manner. There are so many featured highs and lows, but the overall message shines through and nearly brought me to tears (I’m a total sap to begin with, but still!)… it’s a must watch!
