My Current Favorites: Spring 2016


Hey there! It’s time for one of my favorite blog posts to write, and typically leads to me repurchasing/buying new things for some unknown reason. I don’t know, maybe I just needed to treat myself to something after the insane ride that was spring semester! You know the drill: here are some of my favorite things from my favorite season: Spring 2016! You can check out my other favorites posts here and here!


Comfort Colors Frocket Tees

I love comfort colors frocket tees because they are comfortable and pair very nicely with norts and my Nike free runs. You can get monogram versions from Etsy, or brands like Simply Southern and Southern Fried Cotton also have some super cute options.

Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy: La Fleur

This is my favorite spring scent. It’s very fresh and clean. If you’re looking for a new spring/summer scent, this is the one for you! You can also try the regular Viva La Juicy scent {I think I’ve gone through at least 3 bottles of it}.

Grey’s Anatomy

Y’ALL. Shonda Rhimes has done it again for me. First, Olivia Pope and Scandal made my life and now, I am absolutely in love with my new show. I may be a cross between Bailey and Christina, and it’s great! This show has drama, crazy plot lines, and amazingly dynamic characters. Yes, there are 11 seasons. Yes, I started a month ago and yes, I am on season 6.

Benefit:They’re Real Mascara

This is one of my new obsessions and splurges. You can even try out the sample size at Ulta for $10-12. I will tell you that it is definitely worth the full price $$! I also noticed that my eyelashes have been growing more than when I was using other mascara products. If you like long, luscious lashes, you should definitely look into trying this product.

Kendra Scott Necklaces

While her jewelry is super duper expensive, they are classic pieces and can be styled in so many ways. My personal favorite is the Eliza necklace. I love the gold one that I have here  and my mom also got me the matching Dani earrings – they are the perfect combo!

If This Then That

IFTTT is a blogger’s dream, but can also make daily tasks so much more convenient! I save 10 minutes in the morning by having the weather texted to me. This allows a notification to pop up on my phone meaning that I won’t be tempted to surf the web or explore my Twitter feed.

Caramel Iced Coffee

No surprise that coffee has found its way onto the list again. I was slightly obsessed with the infamously addicting beverage during finals, but I also drank it simply for taste during other parts of the school year. You should definitely try a Grande Caramel Iced Coffee with milk for a refreshing afternoon drink.

The Script

I’m the type of person that listens to the same song 7 billion times until my ears bleed from the sound and my mind hurts when someone even mentions the song title. The Script was the perfect background music for all my late night library sessions! All of their albums are fantastic and were perfect for efficient and get-to-business studying!


I think I’ve talked about this one enough, but I will say that this is my favorite way to stay informed while I’m in school! I read my daily email while eating my oatmeal and some crunchy apple slices. It’s a great way to start off my day!

There you have it! All my faves from the past couple of months! Tweet me your favorites [@theswirlblog]


  • I’ve been wanting to start watching Grey’s Anatomy, but the fact that there are 11 seasons kinda scares me haha. I also love The Script! I don’t know that many of their songs, but the ones I’ve listened to were really good! Do you have any favorites I could check out?

    • Grey’s is so so good! 10/10 would recommend; you’ll be on season 7 before you know it hahaha. I love their No Sound Without Silence Album, it’s very chill and good for studying as well! Thanks for reading 🙂 // G
