Scandalous Reads and Drool-worthy Recipes

... these are a few of my favorite things!

Back in January of this year, specifically this resolutions post, I decided not to do friday favorites posts every friday. I only planned to blog 3 times per week and wanted to focus on creating good content instead of just pumping out post after post. Having one of those posts be a friday favorites felt like cheating, so I vowed to make such posts sporadic. Well, I just checked - I haven't talked about my favorites since that post in January (yay, for keeping at least a part of that resolution! Can't say the same for the 3/wk part but I'm working on it!), and Kay's post inspired me, so here we are!

FAVORITE BOOK

I'm so obsessed with this book. I've tweeted about it to Rainbow Rowell herself like 52937 times, telling her how much I loved it, and she favorited my tweet! I win. And this book wins. And if you've read it, you win. And if not, don't you wanna be #winning?! Go pick up this book right meowww.

Speaking of books, this novel can't be my favorite because I haven't read it, but it looks so scandalous. And I, I like me a scandal or two. It's our book club's book of the month (Go, run, join!). Not convinced yet? Here's a quick synopsis, selected from Goodreads, cut and pasted by yours truly. Your welcome. 

A murder… . . . a tragic accident… . . . or just parents behaving badly?  What’s indisputable is that someone is dead.   But who did what? [...] Big Little Lies is a brilliant take on ex-husbands and second wives, mothers and daughters, schoolyard scandal, and the dangerous little lies we tell ourselves just to survive.  

FAVORITE MUSIC

Bright Lights by 30 Second To Mars on Grooveshark

I find a new song to love on this album, Love, Lust, Faith and Dreams by 30 Seconds to Mars all the time. Yesterday it was Do or Die; today it's Bright Lights; tomorrow it will be Up In The Air (again). Just go jam to the whole thing on Spotify, you won't regret it :)

Bang Bang (feat. Ariana Grande, Nicki Minaj) by Jessie J on Grooveshark

Also, I've been working out to Bang Bang by Jessie J, Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj recently. It just feels like a girl's anthem and I can't help but run/elliptical to the beat. It's such a fun song.

FAVORITE CELEBRITY

KoKo can do no wrong in my eyes. Except for the fact that she's probably dating French Montana and let's be real, she could do so much better. But every time I tune in to KUWTK, I'm always checking for what Khloe's wearing (loved this one piece she wore in Thailand), agreeing with her point of view or laughing hysterically at what she says ("the bigger the hoop, the bigger the ho!").

FAVORITE SHOW 

The fact that I missed this week's episode of Teen Wolf really does a crap job at convincing you it's my favorite. But it really is right now. Followed closely by Pretty Little Liars and Master of Sex. Yes, two of those are teeny bopper shows. Haven't we already established this?

FAVORITE RECIPE

This will be made on Sunday night, because this looks delicious. Drool. Check out the recipe and make it yourself!

FAVORITE CANDLE

I've been lighting this candle every chance I get. It smells like summer and the frozen ices you get from the pizza shop on the corner.

FAVORITE RANDOM

The Florkens revamped their blog and it's gorgeous. I love it almost as much as I do them.
