yeah. these disgusting red snacks that cost me a thousand calories per bag (no literally everyone, these are ONE-THOUSAND calories per package. and yeah. you might be thinking “well yeah, if you’re planning on eating the entire party-size-biggest-bag-they-manufacture package of hot cheetos in one sitting, then yeah” to which I’d say “well DUH that’s WHAT I’M PLANNING”) are probably my favorite snackie EVER.
yeah they’re really gross. I don’t even know what they’re made of. but please never tell me. cuz I love them.
ALSO, for those who thought these couldn’t get any grosser, take a gander at the lovely limon version:
they look like a murdered toilet waiting to happen. horror.
but not bad actually. whenever I run into them at gas stations, I definitely grab a bag. oops.
think about it. my life would be SIGNIFICANTLY worse if these were never invented. plus, call it successful marketing skills and a sucker at the supermarket but, these ones are pretty. so I buy them. (BUT, DISCLAIMER, I mostly buy cardboard ones. cuz I love the Earth.)
Alexander Wang. A designer of designers. My life would be significantly sadder (and my wallet would be SO much fatter) if this man never decided to start designing. He’s amazing. Look how adorable he is too^. I’m in love.
This is how you know I love him to an unhealthy extent:
Olivia’s bank account without Alexander Wang = food, student loan payment, full tank of gas
Olivia’s bank account with Alexander Wang = negative balance, dip into savings account, no food. not even hot cheetos.
^this is a picture of the newest addition to the Alexander Wang family within my closet. the most beautiful blue-green Diego bag in the world. it was on eBay for a steal. in near-perfect condition. was i supposed to not buy it? please.
so i may not be able to buy groceries this week. but i guarantee you that i 100% CAN sit alone in my room with no food or money and stare at this beautiful bag. worth it.
I’m sorry but there’s nothing like having a little extra cash and using it to go get your toes done. NOTHING feels like clean happy pretty toes. NOTHING.
fuzzy Christmas socks. literally at the TOP of my Christmas list every year. my friends are always like “what do you want for Christmas” and i’m like “fuzzy Christmas socks” and they’re like “haha yeah me too. but like really, what do you want” and i’m just like “dude, i WANT fuzzy Christmas socks. the fuzzier, the better and the MORE the better.”
favorite thing in the world. i SHAMELESSLY have seen every single episode of every single season multiple times. i can literally sit and watch like 6 episodes in one sitting. that’s SIX HOURS of project runway. it’s amazing. there needs to be more of it. and Tim Gunn needs to be my best friend. forever. Tim Gunn needs to be my BFF.
thrifting. one of my all-time absolute favorite activities.
i do it periodically to keep a good inventory in my shop, but i just LOVE it. even when it’s part of my shop up-keep, it’s the funnest thing ever. you get stellar deals, unique stuff that no one else has, it’s both environmentally and economically friendly, and you get that super fuzzy happy feeling when you score a straight amazing come-up that you love and will rock forever.
to most, it’s the weirdest thing they’ve ever seen. to the select few, it’s the weirdest bliss on Earth. boys wearing more make-up than me, tighter pants than me, and who are ten-time prettier than i’ll ever be. count me in. for whatever the reason, Korean pop makes me happy. i can’t explain it, folks. it’s just fantastic baby. (ps..photo creds to me on this one^:] )
fair-trade chocolate. specifically Theo brand chocolate because they have the fabbest flavors to choose from. fair-trade chocolate is one of my favorite things in life because of two great reasons. IT’S CHOCOLATE. and it’s fair-trade, which means that everyone who harvested and processed its ingredients were paid fair wages and were respected as human beings. there’s really nothing not to love about fair-trade chocolate. even if you’re allergic to it. (in which case, you have sooooo many of my sympathies because i would never want to live your life. like that’s up there with those people who can’t eat cheese).
SUSHI. sushi is arguably the most important thing on this list. and in life in general. sushi is the best thing i’ve ever tasted and WILL ever taste. it’s magic and it’s good for your soul and if you don’t like it, you probably don’t like happiness. my life is 100% better because sushi exists. THANK YOU, whoever rolled the first-ever piece of sushi.
so there you go. 10 amazing things. enjoy life. happy friday.
