Kate Spade Monogram Shop



I have never loved Kate Spade more than on this day, when their brand new monogramming option for purses and wallets became available. What. A. Game. Changer. Just think of how perfect your favourite Kate Spade purse would look with a small, gold personalization! The service is being offered for select purses and wallets, some of which I've included in the widget below.
Happy Monogramming!

Preppy Scientist Playlist (No. 20)

I haven't given up on blogging - I just needed time to adjust to my new job! I recently subscribed to Spotify Premium and I love it. My favourite feature is having your phone or tablet act as a remote. When you have two or more devices with Spotify connected to a WiFi network, you'll see an option to play music on one device and control it on the other. Perfect for a party or if you're playing music throughout the house!

I put together a playlist of my favourite songs this summer. These songs are perfect for a road trip, or relaxing by the pool!


Listen on Spotify!

Hey it's Okay!

It's been such a long time since one of these posts have been up on the blog. I love writing these ones because I love knowing that I'm not alone in some of my quirks!


1. To vacuum clean carpet just to see the vacuum lines
2. To hate-watch Pretty Little Liars on a weekly basis 
3. To only eat the top of a muffin
4. To have your mom call you and fake an emergency so you can leave a party
5. To park far away from other cars so that no one parks beside you
6. To trap your cat in your bedroom so she's forced to spend time with you
7. To watch the same snapchat story over and over again
8. To cry in the backroom at work because some days are hard
9. To watch 5 different makeup tutorials but settle on mascara and lipgloss
10. To let yourself feel whatever you're feeling

Currently Reading: Super Sad True Love Story

I added Super Sad Super True Love Story to my reading list after Goodreads suggested it to me and I will say that it lives up to it's title. It's going to be difficult to review this book without spoiling it, but I'll try my best! 


Set in a futuristic society that is super focused on shopping, media and life expectancy; Lenny - a life expectancy extender by trade - falls in love with Eunice - an aspiring law student - and the story unfolds from there. The story is told using a mixture narrative, e-mail and diary entries.

Overall, this book is quite sad and strangely political, but it's also really, really good. You will definitely feel sympathy for both characters and notice the strong parallels to the society we are living in today. The author - Gary Shteyngart - was definitely on to something and he got it right with this book. 

Definitely worth a chance if you are looking for a quick but though provoking read!

Parachute Bedding

Bedding is one of my favourite things to shop for! Not only does it tie a room together, the perfect bedding also helps you sleep better. After sleeping on paper thin sheets in university, I definitely value bedding that is well made, stylish and easy to maintain. With summer coming up, it's time to ditch the flannel bedding and thick comforters and switch to something a little lighter.




Enter Parachute. A brand that cares about you getting the best night's sleep possible. Parachute bedding is designed in LA and made from fine Egyptian cotton in Italy. Each design is simple yet sophisticated and is made with comfort in mind. The White Linen line is perfect for summer time! I always sleep with a blanket in the summer, so a lighter sheet is exactly what I need. 




You can choose between sets or separates, which makes it easy to customize your bedding to fit your style and needs. You'll also find decor pieces that will complement your sheets! 

One really awesome thing about Parachute is for every set sold, a mosquito net will be donated to a child living in a region of Africa with high levels of malaria. I always love when companies and brands find a way to be socially conscious. 

For a better night's sleep definitely check out Parachute! You can thank me later.
