The Theory of Everything

This movie looks absolutely amazing! Who doesn’t love a star-crossed love story between a physics student and an art student that is further complicated by his traumatic disease?! Continue reading


My Life According to Pinterest

I have a Pinterest addiction. Sometimes I pretend that I don’t, but I do and most days I’m ok with that. Pinterest now has a feature that collects all your ‘interests’ (aka obsessions) into one place so you don’t have to sift through your feed. Very convenient and totally an enabler. 

So this is my life according to Pinterest, which I’m not sure is super accurate:

Johnny Cash
This interest is a bit of a mystery to me. While I love Johnny, he does not frequent my pinning repertoire. Although Walk the Line is one of the greatest love songs in my opinion. 

Eddie Redmayne
Yeah, I think he’s so handsome and I would have dinner with him any night of the week. He got engaged while I was in London and I swear you could hear my heart breaking all the way back in the States. 

Which brings me to London. My favorite city in the whole world. London recently got its own board (well, England did) and is the only place to have this honor bestowed upon it. Things are getting serious. 

I love chambray. It’s a staple in my closet.  I like my chambray shirts paired with leggings, riding boots, and a chunky sweater. 

Vintage China
Recently I have been obsessed with china. Maybe it’s because I’m moving into my first ‘real’ house? Whatever it is, I am in love. 

This is how Pinterest sees me :) This is only a sprinkling of my ‘interests’. It’s kind of funny to check it sometimes. It’s like getting a glimpse of how your imaginary Internet friend sees you.


I miss England so much! I wish I could buy a ticket right now and catch the next plane out. But, alas, England is going to have to wait for a while. I did find these awesome maps though that are probably going to find a new home in my apartment which should tie my over until I can go back :)

London (part 3)

My last night in London was one of the best of the whole trip. My travel companion had one thing that he wanted to do while in the UK, which was to see Les Miserables in the West End. At first we were told that that night’s show was sold out, but we ran over to the theater and scored some of the last seats. So lucky, right?

Now, I am partial to the 2012 movie version (not at all because I have the largest crush on Eddie Redmayne or anything), so I was a bit nervous about my lofty expectations. While the show was very different from the move (to be expected) it was still amazing. Both of the women who played Fantine and Eponine were phenomenal. I mean, wow! They were just so good. Val Jean was great as well. Really, I was impressed with the whole cast. But this is the West End, so I should have known it was going to amazing :) I am sooo glad that we made time to catch a show. Les Mis was definitely the right choice. There’s just something special about seeing a show where it first opened. 

I wasn’t able to take pictures or anything, so enjoy this clip from the movie, featuring Eddie Redmayne:

PS. I also visited the Churchill War Rooms, a definite must see if you’re in London!
