August Favorites

August has been a HUGE month for me. I moved away from Nashville – where I’ve lived since starting at Vanderbilt in August of 2009 – moved back home, and have fully started hoping to get my health back under control. So here is what I’ve been loving this past (crazy) month!

August Favorites


Taylor Swift – Shake It Off

Say what you will about the music video, but this is a super fun and catchy song. I can’t wait for the rest of the album!
I’ve mentioned time and time again how much I love the Outlander series. I’m currently rereading the 7th book, and hoping to get the 8th one when it comes out in paperback (because I’m definitely not spending $35 on the hardback, as much as I love the series.)
Grad School Websites
Yes, I am applying to grad school. So I’m reading and reading and reading websites and information, so much so that my head is starting to spin.
Ash lives “to experience every day as an adventure by blogging about the grits of life.” 

 Jenn shares with you her crazy dog lady tendencies, her shopping problem, what she’s wearing, and her hopes, dreams, and… stuff.

I have this great pair from last year that I wear all the time! They look cute, and like I put in more effort than I did. Be sure to snag a pair in the end of summer sale!
I’m going to be giving a full review later this week, so I won’t say more other than a) they’re really comfortable and b) I got them for free to review, just FYI.
Look good, feel good, fit well, and all the jazz. Love them! 

Criminal Minds
Big Brother 16
World Without End – miniseries available on Netflix, historical fiction
Emma Approved – YouTube modern retelling of Jane Austen’s Emma. And the actors who play Emma and Alex are dating in real life. It’s just glorious.

    Omg I need to watch Emma Approved! I just "read" (book-on-taped haha) Emma a few months ago and loved it. And I kind of want to try those yoga pants you mentioned heh I love a good pair of comfy pants that you can actually wear as pants in the public sphere without being judged haha.
