Hello! Monday is here and although our heads are still in weekend mode we are thrilled to start a new section inside our “As of late” series. Altogether with our “snapshots from…” – month recap via our phone pics – we are adding an occasional “our current favorites” type of posts, yay?
I know, not anything new under the sun, but since it’s a section from fellow bloggers where I never fail to pick lots of movies, books and gifts recommendations, I thought it could be equally interesting to share our latest obsessions (or those knick knacks that don’t find their own post) to discuss them with our best online pals (a.k.a you!).
Well, let’s move to our first current favorites list ever!
Gilmore Girls and Psycho keychains
Dani recently bought these keychains as a surprise gift: Dragonfly Inn, for me and Bates Motel, for him. One morning when I was going off to work my keys where perfectly hanging on a brand new keychain and on a closer inspection I saw that it represented a Dragonfly Inn (from the Gilmore Girls show) keychain. Those who are used to my Gilmore Girls rant won’t be surprised to learn that I shed to tears with emotion: I had a key to a Dragonfly room! well…kinda! a girl can dream, ha! Dani bought for him a matching Bates Motel, because watching a re-run of Psycho at the movie theater was our second date.
The keychains are not only adorable, but also lighter than the ones we used to have (we have had matching keychains since we moved together), which has made my purse weight more bearable.
The second current favorite is not that current, in fact it is something I’m looking forward to be able to finally wear this month. I bought the skirt in a market 1 month ago and due to the weird temperatures of this spring I have not been able to wear it yet. I’m planning to pair it with my fake-leather jacket. How do you think it will look?
Girls Season 5
Yesterday I was telling Dani how I have enjoyed every single season of Girls so much. It’s maybe too soon to tell, but I think this 5th may become one of my favorites. The characters are having a journey in their own, which results in more deep and auto-concluding episodes, like the one with Marnie meeting Charlie and wandering the streets of New York. Also, we see Shoshanna living in Tokyo, a place we all immediately saw her loving, but will undoubtedly repel her away: the fast-talking Shoshanna is not tailored for a life there.
I read in an article recently that we love to hate Marnie, what do you think about this? Is Marnie really the only one we love to hate? I think the same will apply to each one of them. I love them because they are very relatable, but precisely for that they take decisions that are less than perfect. Oh! and another recent news about the show, Lena Dunham announced that the 6th season will be the last and I applaud it, no matter how much I will miss the show (lots!), I think she is brave enough to end it when she needs to. What do you think about it?
Sally Tsum Tsum
I’m that kind of girl that needs to enter to the Disney store every single time we stumble upon one. Don’t worry, I’m not a shopping addict, so although almost everything the store contains is appealing to me I usually leave empty-handed (relief!). However, the last time I found this Sally Tsum Tsum, all alone by herself for a discounted price of 2.50$, and the need to bring it home was too strong. Dani is not a lot into tsum tsums, but agreed and is now proudly *wink* displayed with our DVD collection.
And that’s it for this first release!
I like this wagon of “favorites” around the blogosphere, because I rely more on what another blogger recommends since I feel I know about him/her likes and dislikes and how I relate to them, is it just me? What is your last obsession?
