Websites I Love

Everyone has those websites they check whenever they sit-down at a computer. Whether it's a blog (see this post), a favorite online shopping site, or anything in between, I go on my favorite sites at least once a day. It's no secret to anyone who reads this blog that I'm addicted to clothes, therefore online shopping is something that seems to have worked its way into my daily routine. Pinterest is a no brainer; adding stuff to my boards brings me to my happy place. Yet, maybe some of my picks are sites you haven't heard of and definitely should check out.

J. Crew Factory
I think it would be accurate to say that 50% of my wardrobe is from J. Crew Factory. I love the versatility of many of their items as most of my pieces can transition from season to season. I'm also a lover of any good sale, and much of the time you can make it out of J. Crew Factory with a ton of stuff for a very reasonable price. It honestly is the perfect store!

Old Navy
Speaking of sales, there is no better bargain than Old Navy. Prices are super affordable, everything fits really well, and their clothes, especially this year's spring line, are generally stylish and chic. Almost always you can find a coupon code for 30 or more percent off and the sales change frequently; it's worth it to check daily!

I'm so obsessed with Pinterest its crazy. If I'm procrastinating, I go on Pinterest. If I'm bored, I go on Pinterest. You get the point. While I may not be as avid a pinner as some others (aka Catherine) I'm telling you I spend a good chunk of my free time browsing through categories and looking at other people's pins. If you so choose, take a look at my boards here.

TV Line
This is my wildcard site that maybe a lot of you guys haven't heard of. I love television and I watch several shows that air during weeknights. Yet sometimes if a miss an episode or just did not understand what was going on, I'll go on TV Line where there are recaps that explain whatever I missed. The contributing writers of this site will also often have interviews with actors that star in some of my favorite shows which can be entertaining to watch.

Granted this really isn't a website I visit everyday, but a daily email I swear by, so in that sense it belongs in this post. My friends and I agree that the daily Skimm newsletter effectively combines humor and factual writing so you comprehend the right amount of information on current events. If you don't subscribe to theSkimm yet, believe me, it's time to jump on the bandwagon.

Do any of my favorite sites double as yours?
