Weekly Favorites #28

It is officially the Christmas Season and I love this message that reminds us all what 
our focus should be as we celebrate Christmas this year. 

I am loving the Nude Color Eye Shadow Pallet by Maybelline. 
You can use the colors in a pair, you can combine 3 colors, or what I usually like to do, use one quad for one specific look. I love that these are all neutral colors but you still get a variety. 
You have a soft, natural browns, darker, smoky colors, and bright, golden tones as well. From what I've tried, they seem to blend pretty well. Everybody needs this color pallet. 

I am so glad Netflix finally made Gilmore Girls available to stream because I can finally see what everybody has been talking about. This is a great show. Why did nobody tell me to watch this when it was actually on the air? It is quick, its smart, its funny. My type of show.
And in my opinion the relationships and stories and plot seem real, and actually believable. 
Guess how I usually spend my lunch hour these days?

My new weekly podcast 
Serial is a new podcast from the creators of This American Life, hosted by Sarah Koenig. Serial will follow one story - a true story - over the course of a whole season. ( I believe a season will be 12 episodes, but I'm not 100% sure.)  This is the first season and the story has been so interesting so far.

Here is a description from ABC
"Millions of listeners are anxiously awaiting the next installment of Serial, that tells the story of Adnan Syed, a Woodlawn High School student who was found guilty in 2000 of murdering his ex-girlfriend Hae Min Lee. The podcast is the brainchild of longtime radio producer and former Baltimore Sun reporter Sarah Koenig, who spent more than a year digging into Syed's case and reporting her findings in almost real-time in hour-long segments released online every Thursday (with the exception of Thanksgiving).

Nine episodes in, the podcast has attracted more than 1.5 million listeners per episode worldwide and turned Syed into something of a household name,  inspiring a dedicated fan base, re-cap blogs and even spin-off podcasts, not to mention heated debates around countless water coolers and dinner tables about Syed's guilt or innocence."

I am always excited for my drive to work so I can listen to the story and catch up on the latest episode. Everybody should be listening!
