a blog for everyone and their mothers



Chloe Gordon


I read this short passage on Tumblr the other day and my mind was blown. I always think about getting into ruts with what I physically do each day, but I’ve never really thought about the ruts we’re in with things we don’t think about as often — especially when it comes to words. Toc-Tic is just wrong. 


If I could choose any famous person’s sense of humor to take for my own it would, hands down, be Steve Harvey. He’s hilarious and I always find myself watching his “best of” videos on YouTube, especially when I’m in need of some cheering up. This video is one of my favorites, and that little boy.. SO CUTE. 

Confession, when I looked up the link to this video I got distracted by all of the Little Big Shot videos so watch all of them haha. 


In honor of my friends going to his concert this week, I decided to share RUFUS DU SOL. I love his song “Sundream” and think you guys should give it a listen. It’s kinda bumpin’ but also chill. The perfect summer night song. 


I’m working at Anthropologie this summer and it’s dangerously awesome. I want to spend my paychecks on literally everything in the store and it’s taking all of my will power not to purchase one of each. However, a lot of my co-workers have been purchasing this jumpsuit and I’m dying to try it on. Jumpsuits never look that great on me, but I’m convinced I need it. 


Something about this photo illuminates summer. Maybe it’s the fleetingness of it — summer is here and then gone in the blink of an eye. Maybe it’s the black and white. Maybe it’s the bare feet on the pedals. All I see is summer.

Best Workout Playlist Ever

I saw a tweet the other day that said something along the lines of, “High school summers: do whatever TF you want. College summers: separation anxiety, attempt to make money, and try to lose weight.” 

I honestly don’t think I could connect to words more strongly. We’re talking a spiritual connection. A connection stronger than my weekly horoscope on Cosmo’s snap story. A connection stronger than one to my own pet cat. So you get it? A strong connection.

This summer especially, I’m missing my friends more than ever. I have a job at Anthropologie that I love, but also am struggling to save money from (because I want to buy everything), and I’m trying super hard to get rid of the sophomore 16 — it’s a real thing, I swear. 

But, this morning I didn’t have to work so I was scrolling through the internet (just millennial things) and I came across this playlist by Refinery29 called “Best Workout Songs Spring 2017,” and it looks amazing! One of my least favorite things when working out is having to constantly skip songs or find new songs to listen to, but this playlist honest to goodness looks flawless. 

We’ve got some G-Eazy, some Blackbear, some Kendrick Lamar, and some Akon. So I think we can all agree so skipping will be necessary. Give it a listen and let me know what you think. 

What do you listen to when you workout?

Summer Reading

Chloe Gordon

My parents moved across the country during my freshman year of college. I was super pumped that they moved because it meant that I could go to Florida during all my school breaks, but even though my family has moved a ton in the past, this has been the hardest move. I think going from constant social interaction to just knowing my mom, dad, and brother is a little weird. It’s like if you go from eating chocolate cake every night after dinner to just having fruit for dessert. Not terrible, but a drastic change, ya feel?

Every time I come home for more than a week I’m bored outta my mind. I don't have any friends here (AT ALL) so I live that fictional friendship life (i.e. books and movies and TV shows).  I’ve been looking for a list of good books and can’t really find one so I decided to make a list in case anyone else is looking for some good summer reads. 

These are some of my all time favorite books, and if you have any recommendations for books I should read, feel free to leave them in the comments! 

The Impossible Fortress
Orphan Train
American Wife
The Selection
The Glass Castle

And these are the ones on my radar that I want to read soon: 

Men Without Women
The Swans of Fifth Avenue
The Rules Do Not Apply
The Mothers
The Girls
The Nest
Difficult Women
Sorry To Disrupt The Peace
The Thousandth Floor
Modern Lovers

Thanks for reading!
