30 for 30 | Tag! January 2013 Link Up #3

The lovely Frandipitous of Franish (a blog you should all be reading if you're not already) tagged me in a fun post about our favorite things about 2012. Since an otherwise good year ended on a little bit of a sour note, I jumped at the chance to remember all the good things!

Favorite Makeup: as of 2012, I'm a Bare Minerals convert. I fall asleep in my makeup with embarrassing frequency and I never have to worry about it anymore, because this foundation never makes my face break out. I will say that I'm looking around for a new winter foundation because I prefer something a little more moisturizing - any tips? I'm using Maybelline's Dream Fresh BB cream and while I really like it as a tinted moisturizer, it's not enough to cover up my dark circles.

Favorite Book: GONE GIRL. GONE GIRL GONE GIRL GONE GIRL. Holy holy. If you haven't read this, go get it now. I can't even start to tell you about it for fear of giving it away, but trust me when I say that even if it doesn't sound like your "thing" when it comes to books, you'll thank me later.

Favorite Song/Album: I was incredibly bummed that I'm not on the Taylor Swift train. I like a total of three songs off Red - All Too Well, Stay Stay Stay, and We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together, obvi. I can't say that it's a favorite song or album, but I'm really loving my Tal Bachman "She's So High Above Me" radio station on Spotify.

Favorite Movie: I think I have to go with James Bond on this one even though I loved The Hunger Games (for the most part). I was also a huge fan of the new Bourne! Lord, am I a 12-year-old boy? Gimme some spy movies!

One Thing You're Grateful For: my family, my friends, and you guys. Because without those things, the end of 2012 would have been impossible to get over and the start of 2013 wouldn't have been nearly as great.

Greatest Challenge: a breakup that was a very long time coming.

Looking Forward to in 2013: a calendar stocked with weekend visits to friends before I graduate in May, GRADUATING IN MAY, two awesome weddings, a trip back to Vegas, passing the bar exam on the first try (let's all start crossing our fingers now, shall we?), hopefully meeting up with some of you little cuties, and finally, finally earning a big girl paycheck.

I know it's only been 20 days coming, but hey, that's my 2012.
And without further ado, I'd like to tag all of the 30 for 30 ladies!
I love learning new things about you guys almost as much as I love drooling over your outfits ;)

  2. ok FINE I'll go read Gone Girl. I've actually heard great things so FINE stop yelling at me!

  5. I had a hard time getting into Gone Girl for the first 100 pages, then it SUCKED me in and I couldn't put it down! Crazy!! Also, if you haven't started reading the 'Mara Dyer' series, START! Or maybe wait until fall when the third and final book comes out. I read the first two and I'm DYING to read #3 and I have to wait...which I HATE!


  6. Is this the Gone Girl you're talking about? Just want to make sure before I buy it! <3

  7. Haha uhh...the David Kirkland comment above was actually me, logged into the boyfriend's. Needed to clarify so you didn't get creeped out by the male / heart commenting occurring. <3!
