Currently Obsessed...



Elissa:

Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell:  I love to read. I read an average of 50 books a year. Once in blue moon I fall head over heels in love with a novel. "Eleanor & Park" had me completely smitten after page 1. It's about socially awkward mid-western teenagers growing up in the mid-1980's. This love story is completely adorable. It will remind you of your high school sweetheart and how it all felt. Keep some tissues for the end!

The Way by Ariana Grande Feat. Mac Miller: You probably know Ariana Grande as the not-so-smart red-headed girl from the Nickelodeon show "Victorious", what you might not know is this girl can SING. She reminds me of Mariah Carey circa 1991. Her new single "The Way" is a perfect fun and romantic summer anthem.  And Mac Miller wears some pretty amazing sweaters in the music video.

Drive-In Movies: Summer nights, a movie and popcorn. I love it all. They are getting harder to find, but I love going to a drive-in movie during the summer. Even if its the latest animated feature and the kids are sitting in the back seat, it still feels a little romantic.

Irene:

Mad Men: I began watching this show very late in the game, but I'm gladly catching up to the current season. I appreciate Mad Men because it's based in a time well before my own. Though the show revolves around fictional characters it actually does a good job of incorporating historical headlines i.e Martin Luther King Jr.'s influence, the struggle for women in the job market, Vietnam and so much more. I appreciate the writing and a very good looking cast.

Mini Bundt Cakes from Bundts on Melrose:  This place is CRAZY good. I work too close to one and we have a generous board member who often treats our office of 5-6 people to a batch of 24, yes... 24 delicious mini-cakes in every flavor under the sun: lemon, cookies n cream, german chocolate, strawberry lemonade, red velvet, butter pecan, etc. etc. Try these mini bundt cakes if you haven't, but be warned, you'll get HOOKED too!

Instagram Video:  I'm a social media addict when it comes to the basics... Facebook, Google + and of course Instagram. I began venturing into Vine but could never get into the video thing until instagram incorporated it into their platform. I love the real-life 15 second video snapshots I create or better yet those created by cooky friends, family & even celebrities.
