Current Crush


Untitled #46

For this week's current crush, I decided to try out a new format and give you all insight into what I'm crushing on in the three major areas that I make purchases: electronics, beauty, and apparel. I think that by breaking it down into these three categories you will get more of a glimpse into my personal likes and taste. 


 Crush #1: Okay so technically an iPhone case is not an electronic item but it goes on top of my most prized electronic device - of the moment - so I think it still counts. I came across these spiked iPhone cases a few months ago after seeing someone I watch on YouTube with one. I was instantly in love and was surprised to find

very few major retail stores in the US carrying them. With an average price tag of about $50 they are not terribly expensive, but are a bit above my college student/recent grad budget, hence why it's still on the crush list and not on my iPhone :( 


 Crush #2: I love when my nails are done but I hate painting them or getting a manicure done at a nail salon because the polish never last more than a week and I always smudge at least one fingernail (don't ask me how, it's a "gift" I guess lol). 


 Crush #3: So I have a rule when it comes to major trends (think colored jeans this season, maxi dresses last spring, and rompers the spring before that) I only allow myself to purchase one item in that trend. From my experience, when something is an uber-trend, it's usually not something that I am going to want to wear seasons later (for example I refuse to wear rompers, I don't care how cute they are, I just don't want to wear them). Which is why last year I limited myself to one maxi dress purchase, which I barely wore because it was such a statement dress. This spring my mouth has been literally watering over simple, chic, and comfy maxi dresses. So... I broke my rule and purchased two more last week, it's okay...I won't tell if you don’t ;) 


Comment below and let me know if you like this new format or prefer the old less structured current crush lists, also let me know what's on your "current crush list"!!!
