Liberal Arts – I watched this new movie randomly, on demand, and was left with the most AMAZING feeling when it was over. It made me think back to all of the things that I miss about college but also appreciate all of the things that I’ve LEARNED since then. The biggest takeaway: at one point Richard Jenkins’ character says, “I’ve felt 19 ever since I was 19 … Nobody feels like an adult; it’s the world’s dirty secret.”
How to Meditate: A Guide to Self-Discovery – I recently re-watched Eat Pray Love, which obviously always sparks that inner “what am I doing with my life and where is it going” question. I know it seems kind of silly to read a book on HOW to meditate cause, well, isn’t meditation just quiet time sitting with your legs crossed? You would think. I need to read a how-to book because I’m totally that girl in yoga that can’t relax and is constantly thinking “was that my iPhone that just went off?”
Sauteed Vegetables: It’s probably the dumbest thing ever but I tend to go through food phase obsessions and, right now, I can’t get enough sauteed vegetables. Zucchini, tomatoes, broccoli, cauliflower…I don’t discriminate, it’s all delicious.
No Doubt “Push and Shove”: My love for all things No Doubt and Gwen Stefani is, of course, forever but I’m not biased when I say that Push and Shove is A-MAZING. Seriously, No Doubt just gets better and better and I can’t wait to see them live on December 4th here in LA.
Sole Society Neve Platform Sandal: I love these heels. Love. Black and camel is totally going to be my fall staple color combination and they’re comfortable, to boot.
Forever21 Geo Cutout Necklace: I’m always on the lookout for fun statement necklaces and this faux diamond version is super cute but not blingy in that tacky way.
Tickets to No Doubt and Alanis Morissette: Go figure that two of my favorite middle school bands both release an album around the same time AND go on tour. I HAD to get tickets to No Doubt and Alanis when they’re in LA. It was a total necessity.
So Saturday night I finally went to the long-awaited No Doubt concert at Jones Beach! It was everything we could’ve hoped for and expected. The band was flawless, the jams were hot and, of course, Gwen’s abs were in FULL force. I’m seriously wondering how much her trainer charges per hour…HA. Anyhow, I found two great videos from the concert on the Village Voice Web site so enjoy. =)
