Five Favorite Things

3 Comments

 Happy Monday everyone!  Today I wanted to spice things up a bit and talk about five things that I have been loving so far this year, but haven’t quite made it onto the blog!  I started this blog as a way to share my favorite things, but usually that’s only in regard to fashion.  If you want to see more posts like this let me know in the comments and I’ll share more of the things I’ve been loving outside of my usual recommendations. 

 

Salt Lamp.  Salt Lamps have been really trending for a while, and you can find them everywhere from Bed, Bath, and Beyond to your local vitamin shop.  I got mine from Urban Outfitters (I was trying to get to the $50 free shipping with something else I was buying!) but you can definitely find some more affordable options elsewhere (my mom bought my dad and grandmother one at Bed, Bath, and Beyond).  I really needed it in the first few months of the year to combat my Seasonal Affective Disorder, but the benefits are nearly unlimited and I’ve certainly experienced my fair share of them.  You can read about some salt lamp benefits here, and I also liked this article about salt lamps if you’re looking to learn more!


The Inspiralizer.  When B and I decided to try Whole3o in January, I went after one of the famed Inspiralizers.  It had been on my mind for at least a year, but Whole30 finally gave me the excuse I had been waiting for!  We’ve tried a few of the Inspiralized recipes (I was obsessed with these fajita bowls!) and also managed to make my dad’s famed pesto with zucchini noodles – it was delicious, and I’m dying to bring it to game night and see what my family thinks of it!


Sweet Peach Palette.  I have been living and dying for this relaunched Too Faced palette.  My go-to every day eye shadow look combines white peach, peaches ‘n cream, georgia, purse, caramelized, and luscious. It’s the perfect soft and bold brown eye, but I also love creating looks in hues of pink and purple. This palette really does it all.  Plus, it smells mouth-wateringly like peaches.  What more could you want??

 

Alarm Clock.  I have been pondering the addition of an analog clock to my makeup area so I can keep track of time.  This one was an instant winner as soon as I saw it.  I love the brushed finish, the traditional alarm style, and the soft color.  As an added bonus it works great for a backup alarm if you aren’t a fan of the cell phone! (You can shop the acrylic spa cylinder set here, and the single one here).


Taco Trucks.  These amazing taco trucks take the handy stands that restaurants have to a whole new level.  They’re fun, they’re functional, they’re dishwasher/microwave safe, and they can be at your door in two days with Amazon Prime.  Need I say more?
Thanks for stopping by! Hope you all have a great week!

xo, C
