It’s Friday, I’m In Love: I

Happy Friday friends!  Here’s a few things I’ve been loving lately.

Physicians Formula Organic wear 100% Natural Origin Mascara

Back in August or September when the mold count was extremely high and my allergies were particularly bad, I was roaming the aisles of Target on the quest for a new tube of mascara.  Regular old mascara has always stung my eyes a little bit, and when my allergies were bad, the stinging was even worse.  On top of that, the itching and burning allergy eyes had me constantly rubbing my eyes.  Of course this also meant I constantly had mascara flakes in and around my eyes.  I ran across this stuff, and decided to give it a try.  I’m not going to lie; I felt like a complete tool buying organic mascara, but I figured a more natural mascara couldn’t hurt especially with the itching and burning my eyes were experiencing without the added bonus of mascara sting.  Plus the price point of this mascara is about the same as the non-organic stuff so I figured I couldn’t go wrong.

And friends, I definitely did not go wrong with this.  I absolutely love this mascara!  It doesn’t sting or burn my eyes at all.  I think it looks a little more natural/ a little less clumpy than the regular stuff too!  It takes a little longer to dry when you apply it, and it’s definitely more apt to run.  However, it comes off very easily.  I’m seriously obsessed with this mascara and there’s no way I’m going back to the traditional stuff!

Marked (House of Night Book #1)


I really can’t believe I waited so long to pick up this book given my love of supernatural fantasy novels of the young adult variety.  I just started this book, and I’m already in love with the main character Zoey.  She’s smart, sassy, and has a general bad-ass vibe.  She seems like the kind of girl I wanted to be in high school.  Bella Swan she is not.  I definitely foresee myself devouring this series pretty quickly.

Doctor Who


I have a ton of friends who love Doctor Who, and given my penchant for nerdy sci-fi goodness, I should have started watching this show a long time ago.  I finally hopped aboard the TARDIS and was hooked by the second episode.  We’re about half way through season 4, and I love David Tenant as The Doctor.  I already have my DVR recording the current season and can’t wait get to the point where I can watch new episodes when they air and then discuss them with my nerdy Whovian friends!

So tell me, what are you loving right now?

Thoughts on Thursday

Here’s what’s been on my mind this week…

  1. I’m giving serious consideration to cutting my hair above my shoulders.  I’ve been loving my long(er) hair, but recently it’s started to feel so blah.  Then I ran across this picture from June 2009 on Facebook.

    Now I really want my hair to that length again.
  2. I’ve finally gotten on board the Pinterest train.  It took me forever to get why everyone is so obsessed, but I kind of get it now.  It hasn’t turned into the world’s biggest time suck for me, but I am now an active user.  Follow me!
  3. I have this sudden desire to be nature girl extraordinaire, and I really want to go camping despite that fact that I’ve never really enjoyed camping.  The last time I went camping was out in California.  In the middle of the night, my friend (and camping partner-in-crime) Emily and I decided we were too cold.  We drove back to her apartment to sleep and then returned to our campsite the next morning to make breakfast over the fire.  We totally pretended like we never left.
    Maybe it’s all the awesome hikes we’ve been going on, but I’m totally on board for a camping trip that doesn’t invovle my family’s summer house.
  4. My friends and I are huge board game nerds, and I’m now obsessed with building my own board game collection.  I have spent an obscene amount of time browsing Amazon lately.  Feel free to buy my any of the games from this Amazon wishlist and come play them with me.  Until then I will be slowly but surely building my collection using my Discover card cash back bonus to buy game from Amazon.
  5. I’m thinking about switching up my blog layout.  I really loved this theme when I set things up, but now I’m not so crazy about it.
