state of the union

unlike the lust list, the state of the union is about everything that i’m “into” at the moment. yes, i use a political pun, which may or may not have something to do with the fact that i go to school in d.c., but please work with me. i’m heading home for thanksgiving today and basically everything in the photo above will come into play during the next week (kinda sorta).

i cannot wait to read this book by lauren oliver. i’ve had it for a few months and have been saving it for thanksgiving break, because her other books have been amazing. may or may not finish it on the train ride…

i have been listening to anything and everything hozier for the past few months. not only is his voice absolutely unreal and so, so powerful, but he seems like a very cool guy. i’m also a fan of his hair, especially the man bun, but his voice is what is unbelievable. at the moment, i’d kill to get tickets to his show in march… do yourself a favor and listen to his stuff.

i’ve watched chef once already, but i plan on watching it again. it is SUCH a good movie, and for someone like me who loves to cook and bake it’s perfect. i love the plot, the actors, basically everything about it…

hopefully these olivia palermo x westward leaning sunglasses have some sort of deal on black friday, because i am obsessed. i found a photo of someone wearing them online, and they are the only pair of sunglasses that make me want to stray from my aviators.

FISHERMAN SWEATERS ALL THE WAY. i’ve been wearing the same one since high school (actually wearing it now while i write this) and it’s beyond comfortable. they’re so easy to wear with leggings or jeans, and are my go-to once the weather gets colder.

trader joe’s is my favorite place to go food shopping because of their pre-made items. you’d think something that was pre-made wouldn’t necessarily be as good as something homemade, but tj does it right. their mini pumpkin pies are next-level and if you want to impress at thanksgiving, get a few boxes, put them on a pretty dish, warm them up in the oven, serve with cool whip, and pretend you made them. you can thank me later.
