Good morning! I thought I’d take a minute to highlight some of my current favorite things, because it is all about “the little things,” right?
1). The fall air, crisp and cool coming in through the open window at night.
2). Fall-scented candles. My favorite so far is Yankee Candle’s Autumn Wreath.
3). The current seasons of Homeland, American Horror Story: Coven and Hart of Dixie.*
(And the combination of those above three things? Sublime.)
4). My new necklace in the shape of the state of Arizona, which I ordered online (it was my October “mois-versary” gift from Callaghan).
5). Chocolate-Dipped Coconut Luna Bars.
6). Thug Kitchen, a food blog whose recipes are creative, scrumptious, healthy, easy and fun to read (if you share my sense of humor).
7). Elevation Burger.
They have a vegetarian burger and a vegan burger, and the latter is a feat of culinary kickass by anyone’s standards. Also, their fries are fantastic and cooked in healthy olive oil. Okay, I’ve just decided that I’m going to make a list of “Top Ten Things I’ll Miss about Austin,” just so I can put Elevation Burger on it!
8). It’s a 10 Miracle Leave-In Plus Keratin.
In this little bottle, we have THE ANSWER to my current First World beauty problem (that’s a redundancy, I know), which is that my hair is in an unmanageable stage of growing-out bangs and an awkward cut with even more awkward layers and over-texturized ends. I’ve recently started dealing with the whole mess by pretending that the bangs already don’t exist, and the result is a cascading achievement of blah. ENTER THIS PRODUCT.
I’d been stalking it for some time, but its price tag had deterred me… until I saw it on sale at Target last week. It was still expensive, but I felt less guilty springing for it when it was $4.00 off (and I got the small size – 4 fl. oz). Turns out, it’s totally the miracle product it claims to be, so it’s worth the expense, as far as I’m concerned. See how shiny, soft and tame my hair looks in the above picture? That’s because of this stuff. That’s all I put in my hair after I washed it that day, and I didn’t do anything to it after that… it’s air-dried and uncombed. Seriously.
9). Movies about Formula 1 racing.
10). This Matt & Nat bag I unearthed from a pile in a thrift store for $9.00, a rare find.
What are you crazy about right now?
*Since I posted about our Pretty Little Liars addiction, we’ve lost interest in that show! Writing about it broke the spell, oddly enough.
