My Friday Favorite Five

It’s time for another Friday Favorite Five!

It’s been a while since my last Friday Favorite Five post. I’m excited to be doing another Friday Favorite Five post today. 🙂 Here we go…..

ONE: Cheesy Rom-Coms

I have always loved and will always adore cheesy rom-coms. The first rom-coms that I ever watched were Kate & Leopold and Leap Year, and ever since those movies I’ve been addicted. Hallmark movies are some of my favorites, and Christmas is one of the best times for romance movies! Last night I watched Life as We Know It (SO cute!), and as I type this post, the Hallmark movie From Friend to Fiance is playing in the background. If you guys have any good rom-com suggestions, please leave them in the comments below!

TWO: Chilled Chai Lattes

I’ve been working on creating a chilled (I don’t have ice okay??) Chai latte recipe, and I think I’m getting close to creating THE ONE. Basically I steep two Chai tea bags in 2 cups of water in the fridge overnight (start with hot water so that it is stronger). The next day, I remove the tea bags and add a teaspoon of vanilla extract and two tablespoons of brown sugar. I make sure it’s all mixed together, then pour the sweetened concentrate into a glass and mix with almond milk. This drink has been satisfying my cravings for Chai during these hot, sunny days, and it’s delicious!

THREE: College Vlogs

My freshman year of college is coming up, and I am so excited! I’ve been watching some college vlogs to learn more about what a little bit more about to expect, what to bring, etc. Here are two vloggers whose vlogs I’ve learned a couple tips from:

Marrisa Nicole | Ohio State University | College Tips and Hacks + Vlogs

Sophia Pruett | UNC Wilmington | College Guide + Vlogs

And here’s a blogger who has been helpful as I’ve been creating a packing list: Sophia Lee of By Sophia Lee

FOUR: Surfaces Music

Surfaces has been one of my favorite music groups to listen to lately! Their music is so fun, bright, and positive. You might know their song “Sunday Best.” It’s one of my favorites of theirs!

FIVE: Poldark

You all may be thinking… Does this girl do anything but drink Chai, listen to music, and watch TV and YouTube???? The answer is yes, I do, but I’m just listing some of these kinds of things that I’ve been liking okay??? Okay, back to Poldark…..

My mom and I just finished the last season of Poldark (which is on Amazon Prime). It was such a good show, but I felt a little unsatisfied by the ending. Nevertheless, I’m hoping to rewatch it soon. 😉 Seriously, if you like period dramas, try POLDARK. I want to read the books too!

My Friday Favorite Five

I’m starting a new blog series today: My Friday Favorite Five!

Basically, every once in a while (and on a Friday, of course) I’ll be sharing five of my favorite thing, from quotes, songs, recipes, and books to random little things like mugs of cocoa and colored pencils. ❤ Here we go….

ONE: Little Women Anything and Everything

Little Women by Louisa May Alcott is one of my favorite books of all time. My lola took my sisters and I to see the new movie in theaters, and we loved it! IT IS SO GOOD GO WATCH IT (especially since it is now on digital!). Also, the soundtrack is the greatest to turn on while studying, folding laundry, or really just doing anything.

And I can’t not mention The Little Women Cookbook by Wine Moranville that my sister got me for my birthday. ❤ So far, I’ve made Jo’s gingerbread cake, milk toast, and Hannah’s turnovers.

TWO: Cozy Socks

The cozy socks from Old Navy (which are now no longer available :() are my FAVE. I have a bunch of them that I have stocked up on over these last couple winters. I wear them all the time, and they are so cozy and comfy!

THREE: Mechanical Pencils

I don’t think that I would be able to get through high school or even WRITE without mechanical pencils.

FOUR: Chai Lattes

I have a new obsession y’all: CHAI LATTES. Chai lattes, hot or iced, are DIVINE. I’ve been trying to make them at home, and they’re not as good as some I’ve had at coffee shops, but they satisfy my craving.

FIVE: These bits of truth.

“I may not know what tomorrow holds, but I do know who holds tomorrow.” -Unknown

“Cast all your anxiety on Him, for he cares for you.” -1 Peter 5:7
