A Few Favorites

Finals week, the inevitable end of every semester. The week that is simultaneously dreaded and welcomed, the week that every student cannot wait for to be over. 

This coming week is that week for me and I have been more than ready for this week since about mid-October. Yes, I am dreading this week but I also just want it to start so that it can end. While I am sad to be closing the door on my last fall semester of college, I am also glad to be saying goodbye. 

I feel like I have been complaining so much about this semester on here, and even the end of the year and I apologize to anyone out there reading this, but you will no longer hear of this after this week! (woohoo!)

Anyways as a little study break I thought it would be fun to share a couple of favorites with you all! These will definitely be the little things that will be helping me get through this week.

Music
I have been devouring this EP on Spotify recently. In particularly I have been obsessing over "Absolute Smitten", it makes me want to dance and skip around it's so happy. I also really like "Life Lesson", it's twenty-two seconds of edgy bliss.

 My mom kind of surprised me with this pom pom blanket over Thanksgiving break and it is just the cutest thing I have ever laid eyes on.

I stumbled across some Terry's Chocolate Oranges last week at Kroger (for only $3.50!) and bought a dark chocolate one and have been obsessing over them ever since. First the dark chocolate itself is just so good, like it has really good flavor and it's so smooth and the combination of chocolate and orange is the delish.

I been exponentially loving my black Joni jeans for Topshop lately, not sure why, I just have.

I have also been loving this Insta account as well as her blog. If you appreciate good design, visually pleasing things, and Europe you probably will too.

I bought a gold spoon the other day at Target and I am way too excited about it.

Last (but not least) because it's finals week I just want to mention these highlighters because I have them and I kind of love them.

Finally because I do not want this post to just be about materialistic things I want to finish it off with this:

"My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever."
Psalm 73:26

I just wanted to add a little Bible verse as a reminder that my worth is not in things like finals or grades or even stuff. While many of these things seem trivial now, they ultimately don't matter in the end. While these things are all things that do make me happy, it's depleting happiness and that the Lord is the only source of everlasting joy. 

Thanks for reading all of my rambly thoughts!
xox,
Amanda
