Weekly Wonders

It's so funny how some of the things that used to be your favorite come back to you, isn't it? Ever since I started writing this blog, my obsession with Pinterest has suddenly rekindled itself. Lately, I've just been pinning away-- and I'm definitely not complaining about it. The great thing about Pinterest is you stumble upon little things that normally you wouldn't think about. I'm also so incredibly impressed by the talent of so many people. Their photos, their creations... it just astounds me!

But enough about Pinterest. I am so happy today (hence the photo). My exams are OFFICIALLY over, I took my last one at 7:30 this morning! Looking back on the week, I got really lucky this time around as far as exams go. For the first time in my entire life, I wasn't unbelievably stressed out during exam week.

This week has just been extremely rewarding and enjoyable, the perfect start to my month long break. My grades weren't the only thing I was happy about this week; so many things have happened that have caught my eye. So, without further ado, here are this week's weekly wonders!

1. Queen B



Only Beyonce could pull off dropping an album with absolutely NO marketing or advanced notice and rock it. I don't know anyone who wasn't freaking out about this today. And now more than ever, I deeply, deeply regret not attending her concert in Montreal this summer. Next world tour I guess...

2. Tory, Oh Tory...

If I had more money, rest assured it would all go to you. I got an e-mail this morning encouraging me to take a peek at Tory Burch's winter sale selection, and I'm kind of wishing I hadn't. Because I want all of it.

3. David Thibault's cover of "Blue Christmas"


He actually sounds just like Elvis, it's amazing. Listen to the Elvis version here.

4. Favorite Quote


Lately I've been noticing more and more the power of positive thinking. It's amazing what one thought at the beginning of the day can do for a person.


I have to thank Carly at The College Prepster for introducing me to this site. It is definitely going to become an obsession of mine, and I totally don't mind it. Check out my closet
Seriously though, how cute are these clothes?



And this mug... I mean, come on. Give a girl a chance!
