They only want you when you're seventeen...


When you're 21 you're no fun. Some of you may have smiled at my post title it's a lyric from the amazing song by Ladytron called Seventeen. CHECK IT OUT. I got this idea from another blogger,creating a some of my favorite things list.This list isn't in a specific order and if we share anything in common..don't be afraid to leave a comment.
1)Starbucks or Chock full of Nuts Iced Lattes
Every New Yorker knows what I'm talking about. Starbucks is the ultimate then Chock full of nuts then second cup:)
2)Cosmopolitan,Nylon&Vogue magazine
Cosmo is my guilty pleasure. Nylon feeds the hipster in me. Vogue inspires the high end fashionista in me.
3)
Glam Eyes Lash Flirt is the best mascara ever wanted or I would like to think so. There's no clumps or messiness.It lifts and separate your lashes for the highly desired lush and voluminous eyelashes. For those that have sensitive eyes like moi this is PERFECT. My eyes didn't water or turn red as it usually does with other mascaras.It's available in all drugstores and it costs roughly between 6 and 8 dollars.I'm not really a makeup kind of girl but everything once in a while a little mascara won't hurt.
4)
Neutrogena Oil Free Acne Wash (Grapefruit)Um,yeah this thing is amazing. I have oily skin,like out of nowhere my nose will get really oily...even shiny. I've been using the unscented acne wash for years and let me tell you it works wonders.I've gotten so much compliments on how clear and even my skin tone is.Now that it is in grapefruit it's all the more pleasant. In the morning it's great,the smell really does wake you up. It's about 6,7 or 8 dollars. Use it ladies&gents.
5)
Headbands
Let me just say that I've been wearing headbands way before Gossip Girl. I've been wearing headbands since I was 14..I'm almost 18 btw. When I used to wear them all the time people were like"You're always wearing a headband...why" " Can I try it on?" "Sharifa and her headbands..." OK,my rant is over but you get the point. Memo to self:I need a black headband.
**These headbands are from elizab.com
6)Exotic/Fashion JewelryIf you know me personally you've probably seen me in real jewelry i.e gold,silver, maybe a handful of time. You've seen me in fashion jewelry more than you can count. I love love it. It adds a different look to your clothes: a more modern,fun, and funky look. How can you resist peacock earrings or pink pearls? For my exotic jewelry lovers,I think we all lust for a snake bracelet(Pic above).
7) Autumn
Fall w/e you want to call it. I love everything about it: the leaves,the air,the way everything seems to be going at a slower pace,THE WEATHER. I hate summer it makes me sweat and my hair poofy and curly-.- The best thing is going for a walk in central park during fall right around mid October or so. Just like Heaven.
8)Good music & Good people i.e my family and friends.I listen to all kinds of music but I have this soft spot for rock n roll. I grew up listening to Guns N Roses,Micheal Jackson,Prince. Slowly but surely I started listening to hip hop,softer rock,indie,pop,techno and country.There's something on my play list for everyone.
9)Sugar
I have a serious problem-everyday I must intake sugar. Whether it's Raisin Bran Crunch,starbust,cupcake or latte. I have a serious sweet tooth. If you never had a Godiva chocolate shake,I highly recommend one or two. **Workout everyday or every other day if you plan to eat like me,ah aha
10)Books
I love a good read! Here's some book that you should definitely check out:

The Alchemist-Paulo Coelho
I hope they serve beer in hell-Tucker Max
A piece of cake-Cupcake Brown
Three cups of tea-Greg Mortenson
Hard Love-Ellen Wittlinger
Prep-Curtis Sittenfeld
Delivery man-Joe McGinniss
The giver-Lois Lowry

That's it for my favorites list,look out for a pt.2 to this list...
Much Love,
S
