Just Another Manic Monday
 Happy Monday everybody!!
While it was a wonderful weekend full of chocolates and cheesy rhymes, it is now time to get back to reality on this hum drum Monday morning.  To get me through such sadness, I have compiled a small list of all the things that get me through my Monday blues. 

LIP + CHEEK STICK: I like this product because I’m more of a chapstick girl than anything, however, I do love a bit of color. The Chubby stick moisturizes and colors at the same time with out overdoing it. 

STARBUCKS: My sister made me these little gems over the summer and I get compliments on my gold one constantly! If I didn’t have Starbucks in my life I would be even more of a sassy pants than I already am. In the words of Lorelai Gilmore, “I need caffeine. Whatever form you’ve got, I haven’t had any all day. I’ll drink it, shoot it, eat it, snort it, whatever form it’s in, gimme.”

The Arctic Monkeys: While English indie rock might not be your cup of tea, I have a thing for their lyrics.  I like to listen to their newest album in the morning because it is a bit softer, and as the day progresses, their earlier albums keep me awake as I’m trying to finish up all the errands that I left until the last possible minute. 

Michael Kors Watch: Since I usually sport a pony tail and yoga pants on Monday’s, there’s something that makes me feel better about pairing it with a cute watch.  Judge all you want but I swear MK goes with everything!  

My Day Planner: This baby is a lifesaver (not the fruity kind). You know all those tests you blew off studying for so you could go to the basketball game? Day Planner. And all those upcoming assignments that you plan to leave to the last minute? It’s all in this little baby. I always make sure to buy a day planner small enough to fit in most of my purses because I always forget something and my day planner is the ultimate reminder of those last minute dates and times that I never seem to remember.
