1. The Vampire Diaries
SO OBSESSED. I tried to watch this show a few years back and I only got a few episodes in before I was bored. I tried again a few weeks ago and now I’m totally into it. It’s a slow start (typical girl meets vampire, takes a few episodes to realize he’s a vampire, etc. etc.) but gets so dramarific and awesome in the middle of the first season. The best part? I had just planned on watching it by myself—Babyface isn’t huge into the whole supernatural genre—but he got wrapped in, too and now we’re both watching it together. So much drama. So much pretty. So many cliffhangers. No spoilers, we just started season 2. Side note: Damon > Boone. 100%. But now I kinda want to rewatch Lost.
2. Nike Training Club
This may be one of my favorite apps in the app store. Nike created an amazing piece of software for fitness buffs. Dozens and dozens of targeted workouts with clear video instructions, timing, ability to play your own music and gamification (points, badges, etc.). Plus, it is TOTALLY FREE. My gym membership recently lapsed and thanks to this awesome app, I’m thinking of staying sans-gym. It’s like I have a personal trainer on my phone. Amazing.
3. El Camino
This album makes me get up and dance, no matter how pissed off or sad I am. It’s been on repeat in my car pretty much nonstop since I got the disc in my stocking for Christmas. The Black Keys have pretty much the best road trip music ever created. Go ahead, try it. Download some of their stuff and then try not to drive cross-country with a bag of Combos and an 80 ounce Mountain Dew. I dare you.
Babyface got me a ModCloth dress for Christmas and now I’m kinda totally obsessed with them. Right now I’m browsing their amazing swimsuit selection for a suit (or two!) to buy for our anniversary trip. So much cute. And in realistic sizing. Woohoo!
5. Conair Infiniti Pro Hair Dryer
I have had the same hair dryer since high school. It was in terrible shape. A curling iron melted the buttons on it at least five years ago, so the only way to turn it on and off was with the buttons on the plug. It made bad noises and always smelled like burning hair. Babyface recognized this ridiculousness and bought my this hairdryer for Christmas. It’s fantastic! It dries my hair in half the time my old one did and leaves my hair super soft and smooth. Upgrade!
