Looking Back in February 2015 — Celebrations

Wednesday, March 4, 2015

At the beginning of February, Stephanie and I visited Franci Cakes on her opening day to celebrate and show support by purchasing some delicious cupcakes. I was also able to celebrate a good friend's 22nd birthday (which is why both of my girls are double-peacing it in the second photo, hahaha) with strawberry beer!

Loved: The Conspiracy of Us by Maggie Hall, I Was Here by Gayle Forman, The Winner's Curse by Marie Rutkoski

The 100 (The CW)
Are you surprised this is on here? Probably not. After hearing all about this show on Twitter, I knew I had to give it a try. I flew through the first season in two days (thank you, Netflix) and am now all caught up. Reasons to watch this show: AWESOME lady heroines, crazy plot, cute males ... need I say more?

  • After finding out that Shawn Mendes is performing at the Taylor Swift concert I'm going to in August, I looked up a couple of his songs and fell in love with The Weight.
  • Watching Adam Levine and Gwen Stefani sing My Heart is Open together at the Grammys gave me the shivers.
  • Imagine Dragons came out with a new album and I have been in love with Shots.
  • Shut Up and Dance by Walk the Moon was my go-to song of the month!

What was your favorite book of February? Have you seen The 100 yet, or are you trying to avoid all the "hype?"


  1. I haven't watched The 100 yet, although so many people love this show! I should really start it sometime soon. Shawn Mendes is one of my recent favorites too; I like his song 'Something Big.' Of course, Adam Levine is always great :) DUFF and I Was Here are on the top of my TBR list right now. I read Winner's Curse last year and I wasn't a huge fan, but I'm looking forward to picking up the sequel.

  2. Yes, The 100 is definitely a show you need to start watching!!! If you have Netflix, the first season is already up. I haven't heard Something Big yet *adds to Spotify "to listen" list* :p
