What's Not to Love

After yesterday being Monday and me being bummed that it's Monday, I realized I have a lot of great things happening/things to be thankful for. They may be little, but can be counted as little pick me up throughout the day/week. And it's been a while since I posted a "what I'm loving currently right this second" post. So here we go.

1. Getting things for free. Like redbox movies.(hint: if you have the app they send you messages and sometimes free promo codes woo!) Oh and also free clothes (stay tuned for my very first ever sponsored post) I know people sometimes HATE reading them, but hopefully you won't hate mine AND it feels like I've really made it as a blogger because someone wants to give me free stuff in exchange for my honest opinion!

Moving on.

2. Temple Run. Ok so I know this is old, but I'm re-addicted. I used to be pretty good (like high score of 20 million good). Now I can't make it past like 2 million. Life is hard y'all.

3. Spotify. Like why haven't I jumped on this train before? You can listen to certain songs if you want (unlike Pandora) and search other people's super cool playlists. What's not to love? Nothing.

4. The envelope system. One of my future goals was to operate for a month on the envelope system. Basically you budget for the month, take that much out in cash, and when it's gone it's gone. I know it can be unsafe to carry lots of cash around (yes dad I know),  but so far it's help me shop less and save more. Only like 13 days left. I can do this.

5. Fashion blogs. I'm not usually one to peruse the pages of fashion magazines or fashion blogs for that matter (mainly because I can't afford most of the clothes they are trying to sell me). But, lately sites like Brighton the Day and Poor Little It Girl have become my must reads. I stalk the crap out of their posts (and most of the time, their clothes ARE affordable). And let's face it, when it comes to fashion, I need the inspiration of seeing how things are paired.

I'm linking up for Listed Tuesday because obviously I like love lists! What's on your list?


  1. I love the idea of the envelope system, but I can't shop online like that, and online shopping is my one true love. And I'm with you on spotify - SO much better than pandora and totally worth the money to use the app!

  2. I recently started playing Temple Run again and it is so much harder now! I don't know how I was ever so good at it either. Yay for your first sponsored post!! That is so exciting

  3. Free things are the best!!!! Those redbox codes are the bomb!

  4. Congrats on your first sponsored post! I can't wait to read it!!!!

  5. I have a dozen fashion blogs bookmarked that I check everyday!
