Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone!
I’ve never really been one to take this holiday too seriously, but I do love any occasion for fun decorations and tons of sweets!
I’ll be celebrating my Valentine’s Day by going to work and hitting the gym tonight. Not a particularly exciting day, but I’m still looking forward to adding some Valentine’s cheer where I can!
I hope you all have a wonderful Valentine’s Day!

Okay, true confession: I have an irrational fear of lipstick. Up until lately I never really gave it a second thought. I don’t wear lipstick, and that was it. But lately I’ve been seeing it everywhere!
I love the way a bright pop of color looks on other people, but I alway feel like it makes me look clownish. Maybe I’m just not used to the color on my face, but every time I’ve tried to wear lipstick I feel ridiculously self-conscious all day long. Everyone always seems to look so wonderful and put together with color on their lips, and I totally wish I could pull it off.
I’m going to attempt to conquer my fear though! I’m hoping I’ll get used to seeing bright lips on myself, and maybe look as cute as some of these girls.
Do y’all like to wear color on your lips? How do you pull it off and look stylish and not clownish?

If you were to ask me what my favorite food is, I wouldn’t even have to think about it. Without a doubt it’s popcorn.
While it’s probably not the most exciting or refined choices for my favorite food, it’s probably the only thing that I could eat every single day and not get sick of. In my mind there is absolutely nothing better than a big bowl of freshly popped popcorn (popped with a hot air popper, of course!) with tons of butter and salt on top. I’m somewhat of a popcorn purist — no fancy toppings or candy mixed in for me!
What’s the one thing you could eat every day and never get sick of?

I’ve just spent the last hour reading the fascinating “my morning routine” series on the Bon Appetit blog where celebrities share their own morning routines. Of course, I was especially interested in Justin Timberlake’s routine (he’s one of my many celebrity crushes!), but I found myself reading every single post in the series. Jonathan Alder’s description of his life with Simon Doonan was particularly funny too!
As for me, I’ve recently started becoming somewhat of an early riser. I’m usually up by 6:15 on work days and up around 5:30 for the gym on days I have school. On the weekends I usually sleep in a little bit later, but not ever past 9:30 or 10.
While I’m not a huge fan of typical breakfast foods, I do try to eat something every morning. Usually it’s just a simple fruit smoothie with frozen fruit, almond milk, chia seeds and sometimes some spinach. If I get up early enough, I’ll drink my smoothie while catching up on blogs or news (sometimes Facebook..) online. Otherwise I have to chug it down while I’m getting ready. Usually I’m able to hold off on my morning coffee until I get to work, but if I’m particularly tired I’ll make some french press coffee and drink it while I get ready.
Then it’s out the door by 7:45 for work or finishing up some last minute homework before my first class of the day.
What about you? What’s your typical morning like?

Is anyone else as obsessed with Lana del Rey as I am? Lately I’ve been listening to her music on repeat; I just can’t get enough!
She’s also just so glamorous and beautiful, like she is from a different time period. Here are a few of my favorite photos of Lana:

Could she be anymore gorgeous? Seriously, I feel like she can do no wrong! What do you all think of Lana del Rey? Are you as big of fans as I am?
