Top 5 & The Weekend

My bloggy friend Jana tagged me in the Top Five Things I Could Not Live Without.
Miss Jana is one of my best blog friends.  I love her blog and the beautiful nautical things she finds.

Beside the necessities - food and water - these are the five things I could not live without...

1. Chi Straightener. I have naturally curly/wavy hair.  And, it is unruly without a daily straightening.  I honestly don't know how my life was before a straightener.  The slightest bit of humidity turns my hair into a hot mess of frizz.  For those of you familiar with the SC weather, there is no such thing as slight humidity.  I usually try to keep my hair short to limit the frizz.  Right now, I am growing it out to try and donate it.

2. Apple Products.  I love all things Apple.  I am looking forward to my upgrade to the iPhone.  I have a Macbook.  I will never use/own a PC, again.  It is so easy to use.  Between school work, Facebook stalking, online shopping, and blogging of course, I am on my computer 90% of my day.  One of the only things that gets my through my day is music.  I listen to iTunes or Pandora when I read and study.  I rarely listen to the radio in my car.  My iTouch is usually plugged in.

3. Diet Coke.  The other thing that gets my through my day is diet coke.  Since I don't drink coffee, it is my only source of caffeine.  During exam time, I just need to insert a diet coke IV.  I gave it up for Lent one year and the headaches were unbearable so it didn't last.

4. Chapstick.  At any given time, I will have at least three things of chapstick in my purse.  You can never have too many. Right?  Burt's Bees is my favorite.

5. Google Calendar.  To say that I am involved at school is an understatement.  I am on several student government committees and a member of just as many student organizations.  Then, there is the mandatory and optional programming I have to or choose to attend.  Without my (color coded) Google calendar, I wouldn't know if I was coming or going.

What can you not live without?

Now for a little weekend recap.
Overall, I was a lazy bum this weekend.  The stuff that I had plan to get down get no where near achieved, but that is okay - I need a little time to do nothing.

Last night, most of my friends and I went to the Palmetto Society's annual oyster roast.  $20 for all you can eat and drink.  I think I will!  It was held at the Visitor Center bus shed so there was plenty of room for mingling and dancing.

My friends are not normal.

Yesterday, Elizabeth and I took a little trip down King Street for some retail therapy.  I finally made it down to the new Forever 21.  I will share some of our finds soon.

Hope everyone enjoyed their weekend.  If you are on Spring Break, I hope you have bigger plans than me.  If not, I will be lazy for both of us!



  1. A straightner is something I can also not live without... my hairy is semi-straight but also frizzes out if its just blow dried... thank god that straightners came out when we were in high school :)

    I am starting to lean towards mac although I have a dell lap top now with windows 7 and I also like that. My bf has a Mac Book Pro and loves it and at my previous job we worked on all macs... so I can use them and will probably come over to the dark side the next time I need to invest in a computer :)

    I'm a diet coke addict and at some stage in college I was hooked to the extent that I needed six refills a day to function! In SA we only get Coke Light and, trust me, it's not the same... so now I drink Pepsi Light (which is better than american diet pepsi) and coffee to get through the day.

    Ok this is turning into a really looong comment, but I also love burts bees (it's the best)!


  2. hahah agreed, there is nooo such thing as slight humidity! I can't believe I didn't put my straightener on my list, I can't do without it... It's a must!

  3. I love my straightener, Mac, and Diet Coke. Couldn't live without those.

    And oh my goodness, your calendar is insane. Do you give google calendar classes? Because you should. Wow!


Thanks for stopping by! I love all your comments, they honestly make my day.
