It might surprise some of you to know that I actually have a Master’s Degree when to read most of my posts it appears that I’m nothing but a lazy, shallow TV watchin’, celebrity gossip lovin’, wine drinkin’ kind of a girl.  Don’t get me wrong: I’m definitely all […]

Good Friday to you! This week’s Favorite’s post has to be short and sweet. Stop crying — it’ll be okay, I promise. Why no rambling list today full of interesting things like Bit-O-Honeys and P!nk songs and boy-short undies (which I do so love)? Because of this: I WAS AT THE ONE DIRECTION CONCERT LAST […]
