May Obsessions


Every month I’ll be posting a handful of things (shows, treats, activities, etc) that I can’t get enough of. This month I’m digging:

Lost Boy by Ruth B – I discovered this song one afternoon a couple of months ago while I was listening to Pandora at work. I’ve become obsessed with it. This month I heard the song on the radio for the first time here in NYC (Z100). I’m so excited to now hear my latest favorite song being shared across the airwaves. I look forward to more music from Ruth B! You’ve got to check her out 🙂

7 Years by Lukas Graham – Super catchy song that makes me think about where I am in life and how the years are flying by. I need to start slowing down and enjoy the world around me.

Tour Group (tv show on Bravo) – Ok, it’s not the best show, but I love travel shows and with summer around the corner this show is getting me in the mindset to plan a vacation, which I’m really bad at doing.

Below Deck Mediterranean (tv show on Bravo)– Not as good as the original Below Deck series but it’s got Chef Ben who is one of my favorite members of the crew.

Papyrus Cards – Since May plays hosts to Mother’s Day I had to give Papyrus a shout out. Papyrus greeting cards are the most beautiful cards out there, hands down! I was first introduced to these beauties in my college bookstore and then I visited a stand alone Papyrus store when I lived out in California. My grandmother has quickly fallen in love with receiving these cards from me so I always make sure to go out of my way to scout down the prettiest Papyrus card I can find. Sending cards has always been something I’ve enjoyed and I’m glad there’s something a little “extra special” available in the greeting card aisles.

Hamilton (Broadway Musical)– My boyfriend surprised me with tickets to the musical to help celebrate my recent promotion. I’m specifically obsessed with the King in the show and can’t get his funny antics and songs out of my head. The show is worth the wait and cost!

April Obsessions


Every month I’ll be posting a handful of things (shows, treats, activities, etc) that I can’t get enough of. This month I’m digging:

When Calls the Heart (tv show)
A romance tale set in the early 1900s in the midst of a small coal town. The show currently airs on Hallmark Channel but I’ve only recently discovered it. For those like me, Netflix binging is highly recommended.

An Idiot Abroad (tv show)
The show follows around a guy named Karl who happens to be friends with Ricky Gervais. Ricky and his buddy Steve decided to send Karl around the world to see the 7 wonders, putting him in unusual situations just to see him squirm. Watch this for some intense laughing!

Stitch Fix
A stylist service where you get 5 items shipped to you to try on in the comfort of your own home. I’m not a monthly subscriber, but I’ve requested 2 boxes in the past month and am considering a third. Blog post coming soon on my Stitch Fix experiences.

Real Housewives of New York (tv show)
Not a new obsession in any means, but since the show recently came back I figured I had to add it in this month’s rundown. For those who don’t know me, I’m a huge Real Housewives fan. Since I work in NYC, how can I not love following these ladies? Stay tuned for a future blog on my thoughts on the various Real Housewives series (Like most of you, I have my favorites and some I just can’t stand).

Magnolia Bakery
Finally having spring weather in NY/NJ made me think of Magnolia bakery. Strange I know, but I blame it on the fact that their cupcakes are frosted in cute (spring like) pastel colors. With Magnolia now having a location in Penn station it makes it easy to pick up a little treat on my way to catch NJTransit.

Let me know what you’re excited about this April!
