Favorites of the Week.

1. Taylor Swift

tumblr_nfzgslWikh1t08kcso1_1280Can we all agree that Taylor is flawless? Like, I’m over Beyonce, the new Queen has arrived. She’s so happy like living life with her friends and fans, it’s basically infectious. She’s taking hold of her life and romanticizing it without a guy and I just want that. She’s an inspiration. Plus she looked kick ass at the VS Fashion Show… Taylor, what is your leg workout routine? Please help us mere mortals.

2. December

GUYS. Did you hear, it’s December! I know I know, it happens every year but it means I can finally skip around singing Christmas carols and decorating everything and making cookies and drinking wine and just so many festivities! I LOVE DECEMBER.

3. Fall Semester

I just finished my last class of the semester today, which means I almost officially have one semester left of my college career. Am I excited? Am I nervous? I have no idea. Just none. All of the above. No more sitting in Starbucks for 5 hours trolling Facebook, not wearing a bra and drinking $5 coffee. You know? Like I want life but I’m also not ready to leave this lazy world behind.

4.Tea

It’s December (like I said…) and I just want coziness all the time. ALL. THE. TIME. So after I drink my daily coffee, I start on tea. I’m all on green tea right now in addition to my chamomile at night. I just can’t think of anything better than snuggling under a blanket and drinking some tea. Add Hulu/Netflix and it’s the perfect night.

5. Red.

I want a red sweater, a red dress, red lips. I want everything to be red. I don’t know if it’s an empowered thing or I’m feeling oddly confident. I definitely think it’s a power statement that’s bursting to get out. I go through phases of only wanting things in a certain color from season to season, but now it’s red and it’s borderline an attention grabbing confidence stunt.

Darling, I’ll be back next week when I’m not stressing about finals slash end of the semester projects slash college ending.

Just know that I do miss you and you can follow my Instagram account if you really miss me.

Love, B.

Quote of the Week.

‘Truth be told, Swift sounds a tiny bit jaded – which, for a “self-professed hopeless romantic,” maybe isn’t the worst thing to be. “It’s not like I’ve sworn off love,” she says. “My life is just not conducive to bringing other people into it right now. I’m very childlike and romantic about lots of things, but I’m realistic about this.”

Swift pauses, searching for a metaphor that will help her explain herself. “Have you heard of the Loneliest Whale? There’s this whale – I think Adrian Grenier is making a documentary about it. It swims through the ocean, and it has a call unlike any other whale’s. So it doesn’t have anyone to swim with. And everybody feels so sorry for this whale – but what if this whale is having a great time? Because it’s not bad that I’m not hopelessly in love with someone. It’s not a tragedy, and it’s not me giving up and being a spinster. Although I did get another cat.” She laughs. “I asked around: I was like, ‘Does two cats count as cats?’ But then I thought, what imaginary guy’s perspective am I thinking about this from? Someone is going to think I’m undateable for a lot of reasons before they think I’m undateable because I have two cats.” ‘
