24 Things I Love

Tomorrow is my 24th birthday and in honor of that, I've come up with a list of twenty-four things I love. 

1. Travel
Simply put, there is nothing I love more. Of course, I adore the destinations but I also just love being at the airport.

2. Matcha Tea
Hot or cold with lots of coconut milk!

3. Tone It Up
These girls have created my all-time favorite workout routines. They're effective and super fun, plus most videos are shot on the beach which is a nice added touch. Also, Katrina's hair.

4. Skincare
It's a huge part of my life and career. Plus, it's what inspired me to start blogging!

5. Mochi
Of the green tea variety, specifically.

6. Stripes
Preferably, black-and-white horizontal ones.

7. Cold-Pressed Juice
I'm a die-hard fan of Suja and Blueprint.

8. Richard Linklater Films
I often say his films fall into one of three categories (nostalgic comedies, sentimental indies, and mainstream comedies) and I pretty much love every single one.

9. Net-a-Porter
It's not just that the clothes are great. The branding, the edits, and the customer service are what make me a fan.

10. Blogging
In blogging, I've found the proper outlet for my brand of creativity. It allows me to express thoughts visually and through writing which is exactly what I've always wished to do.

11. Chloé
If you hadn't gathered from past blog posts, Chloé is a bit of an obsession.

12. Names
As an avid writer, I've always had a fondness for names. I actually visit baby name websites so often that one of them started sending me emails about "my baby's progress". My favorites are Katherine, Audrey, Karolina, Blair, Henry, Oliver, Ansel, and Ezra.

13. Blush Pink + Rose Gold
This kind of goes hand-in-hand with the Chloé obsession if you think about it. For everything from clothes to makeup to jewelry to home decor, I adore blush pink and rose gold.

14. Infused Water
I have two favorite variations. The first is ginger, mint, raspberries, lemon, lime, and cayenne pepper. The second is cucumbers, lemon, orange, and mint.

15. The Atlantic
I really enjoy the way the journalists relay current events in a format suited for a literary magazine. Even more exciting: the comments section.

16. Freshly Ground Peanut Butter
I'm just really, weirdly into grinding my own peanut butter at Whole Foods.

17. Bloomberg Visual Data
I love the interactive, visual data charts that Bloomberg puts together. They provide a really cool way of understanding different concepts and numeric information.

18. Arsenal
Arsenal is my team, Ramsey is my guy, and this is my chant.

19. 8G Green Tablets
These little fizzy tablets make it so easy to get in an extra serving of greens as each one contains spinach, wheatgrass, kale, blue green algae, spirulina, chlorella, barley grass, and aloe vera. Plus, it tastes kind of like a fizzy apple drink.

20. Vitamix
I don't know what I would do without mine.

21. Movie Theatres
All of them---from the indie theatres with hard and creaky chairs to the fancy ones with recliners and meal service.

22. Coding
While it's been one of the more difficult things I've attempted to learn, I love doing it and it's become a lot of fun! If you want to give it a try, I suggest Codecademy.

23. Skyr & Kefir
I love all yogurt but have a particular fondness for Icelandic skyr like Siggi's or just about any kind of kefir. One time I spilled kefir on my scarf and realized my life is a Vampire Weekend song

24. Veselka
I literally have recurring dreams about this place.
