My Summer WISH LIST! Yes I am serious about the Unicorn Float…

I admit I love shopping even though 99.9% of the time I stop myself but I do want to splurge from time to time.ย  ย I am always online browsing especially lately because well to be honest I am bored sometimes at night.ย  (working nights remotely is so lonely, everyone is ASLEEP!)

I decided I would share the products that have stuck with me and the ones that if I find myself with extra cash I will probably buy ๐Ÿ™‚

The Unicorn float… yes yes yes I know silly Jen.ย  ย I am in love with this float and to be honest I am probably going to buy this for pool days with my mom this summer.

The ASOS tote is something I have had my eyes on, I love how bright and cheery it is!ย  I think it is perfect for summer!

The Brita Water bottle is something I am probably going to buy asap.ย  ย I do hot yoga and I feel like SUCH a freaking loser when I bring a water bottle in to class.ย  ย I mean it is so bad for the environment and I should be ashamed.

The Osprey bag is water resistant and to be honest I am probably going to buy an Osprey back pack soon anyway.ย  ย I am taking a 12 day trip to the Caribbean at the end of the Summer and I really just want a simple bag I can walk around with and this is the one I keep coming back to.

I LOVE the bracelets at NOVICA especially these Guatemalan bracelets,ย  I am pretty positive I will buy these on next payday.

The Burberry sunglasses are a pretty big splurge but I had a pair that I bought end of season a couple of years ago that I was absolutely in love with, sadly they are no longer with me and I have wanted another pair for quite sometime.

The Crocs water shoes I will buy before I go to the Caribbean.ย  I am planning on chasing a lot of waterfalls and I really need a pair of water shoes.ย  ย So far these are my favorite ๐Ÿ™‚

I love the beach cover up by Ralph Lauren ๐Ÿ™‚

I am getting pretty obsessed with all of the beach towels by The Beach People and ifย  I do get to work as much as I am hoping this summer I am going to splurge and buy this towel as I am in LOVE with it!

ย So there you have it! 9 items that I am planning on adding this summer (well probably not the sunglasses ๐Ÿ™ ) !ย  ย What are your must haves this summer?

My Summer Movie List

Yesterday I told you how my summer is going to be all about the R&R mainly because I can’t escape to some tropical deserted island as my bank account might as well have $0 in it, as I have multiple plans coming up I need to save for. So I made my reading List yesterday.


Today’s list is going to be all about movies. I am not counting any movies that are to be released this summer, these are movies already released & I have been told I need to watch, but never have quite watched. Yes there are some classics on here, that a lot of my friends find disturbing that I have not seen.

Although, when I was sending out messages to friends & families, it was pretty difficult coming up with a list. I clearly have seen a lot of movies. So after multiple texts, emails and conversations, I made the following list ๐Ÿ™‚

Seriously I URGE you to sit down, and make a list of 50 movies you have not seen, it is much harder than you think.

So my movie list, for those days I am too sunburned to lay out by the pool ๐Ÿ™‚

1. The Beach
– I had the biggest crush on Leo as a teen, this movie has been on my list for years, and I have never sat down and actually watched it. I know it is considered the ultimate travel movie.

2. The Motorcycle Diaries (English Subtitled)
-Why I have never seen this movie is beyond me, I have watched to watch it but never gotten around to it

3. City of God (English Subtitled)
-I have been told I should watch this for years, but the fact that it makes Rio look bad, made me not want to watch it, as I want to go to Rio in 2016, I feel I should finally watch it.

4. Adventures In Babysitting
-I have a sick obsession with Thor, and the fact that a kid runs around dressed as Thor is reason enough for me to finally sit down and watch this movie.

5. A Good Year
-When I googled movies about travel this came up, I didn’t hear about it prior to making this list.

6. Thelma & Louise
-AGAIN another wow moment, I have not seen a movie that is considered classic and features a very young Brad Pitt.

7. Into the Wild
-I am planning on reading the book, so I figured I should watch the movie too. ๐Ÿ™‚

8. Under the Tuscan Sun
-Again planning on reading the book, so therefore I should watch the movie. Plus there may be a trip to Tuscany in my very near future ๐Ÿ˜‰

9. Little Miss Sunshine
-I have no clue why I have not seen this, even though I have wanted too. It is time, and I just saw a grown up Breslin in The Call, I should watch the movie that made her a star!

10. Office Space
-I know! Let’s move on.

11. Memento
-another one, that I am not sure why I have not watched. Just slipped through the cracks.

12. Lucas
-Told it was a total geek movie, and a must watch, as I love all things geek, well count me in!

13. Battle Royale
-I joke the Hunger Games in a way changed my life (it did!) and when the rumors that it was a rip off of this movie went around I refused to watch it, but given I am such a fan of The Hunger Games, I feel like I owe to try and watch this film… at least once.

14. The Crow
-When Brandon Lee (who I was seriously going to be his very young bride someday) died during the making of this film, I refused to EVER watch it. Now that I have grown up and realized I was never going to be his woman, I decided it is time to sit down and FINALLY watch it. RIP Brandon Lee

15. The Big Lebowski
-I am sick of not getting the jokes. End of Story.

16. Being John Malkovich
-interesting concept, yet I have never watched it.

17. Sneakers
-The movie promises govt deception & Betrayal yep count me in ๐Ÿ™‚

18. Revenge of the Nerds Triple Feature (Revenge of The Nerds, Revenge of the Nerds II, & Revenge of the Nerds III)
-How can you be a nerd and not have seen these movie? No clue, and in an effort to redeem my nerdy qualities, I will watch this movie. Promise.

19. Hackers
-A friend said they are disowning me until I watch this movie sooo….

20. Alien
– I don’t want to have nightmares I told a friend (who shall remain nameless) so all I have to say if I watch and get nightmares? oh it is on. you have been warned ๐Ÿ™‚

21. Robocop
-another movie why I can’t really explain why I have never watched it.

22. Blade Runner: The Final Cut
-The same friend that disowned me for not seeing Hackers said the same for this, and told me not to text him again until I watch both…

23. Minority Report
-I have tried watching this multiple times, but seriously EVERY time I tried to watch it, something happens. I am turning my phone off when I watch this one.

24. Repo Man (1984)
-YOU have to watch the 80s version Jen, not the Jude Law one… But Jude Law is cute was my response, but I suppose I can always watch the Jude Law one too…

25. Pan’s Labyrinth
-fantasy worlds, a sadistic father? No wonder it got so much Oscar Cred, why I have not seen it though, is the real mystery.

26. Predator 2
-Saw the first one. Stopped there, apparently according to my friend. I am an idiot. I don’t want to be an idiot.
