May Favorites

Hello everyone! It feels like finals just ended, but its almost June already! This month I have been training at my new job as well as interviewing for what will be my second internship, which I hope to be taking during the fall semester.

Next month I will begin my summer internship and honestly I am very excited for the 9-5, but I have been trying to take it easy on the few days I have to myself. I picked up my knitting needles the other morning and much to my surprise, I still remember how to use them! Here are some other activities and miscellaneous nonsense I have been loving this month.


  1. Netflix
    • Ok, it's the obvious favorite of every college student. This month I have specifically been loving  MadMen, Dexter, and Bob's Burgers for when I need something lighthearted. 
  2. "Hello Life
    • +Marcus Butler, an English YouTube star, debuted his healthy lifestyle (and intro to adult life) book a few months ago. I bought it when it first became available and although it is a very quick read I found it has some great tips. With such a hectic school and work schedule I haven't been able to read as much as I would like, but I loved flipping through Marcus' book in my spare time. 
  3. Pura Vida Bracelets
    • You might already know this but I love Pura Vida! They're an accessory company that help create jobs in Costa Rica for artisans. I have been wearing this bracelet the most this month, but they just unveiled new rose gold styles and I am in love! I am a campus rep for Pura Vida, so if you decide to make a purchase from this awesome company, remember to use the code 'PATTIANN20' for 20% off. Keep on eye out for limited edition bracelets as well, I was able to snag a really cute one for my mom on Mother's Day.
  4. Purple & Gray 
    • When I first started my blog purple was my main accent color... It still is, but if you have been following me for a few months you will notice I underwent a huge change as far as theme and graphics. I created all my own graphics using an online design site and I really love them! 
    • I love them so much that I carried the theme into my bedroom. Late last month my room was in need of a new coat of paint so I decided on purple, and all my accent pieces are gray. Since I am now entering my senior year of college, and hope to be moving closer to wherever I obtain a job I wanted the accent pieces in my room to be very neutral since I will be moving with most of it. I went with gray because I do not currently have a vision of how I want my future apartment to be decorated. I am really liking the cool tones, as a change from my formerly spring yellow walls.
  5. Trader Joes Cookie Butter
    • Oh cookie butter, something I have heard about for so long but never ventured to try. Cookie Butter is a spread sold at Trader Joe's Grocery Stores, it is basically cookies crushed up and made into a spread equivalent to peanut butter. I have been loving this spread as a dip for apples and spread on whole grain waffles.
What have you all been loving this past month? Let me know in the comments. <3
