my favs this week (April 12, 2014)

Saturday, April 12, 2014

Another week, another list of really random things that I LOVE!

  1. Aveeno Dry Shampoo - I bought this at Walmart for around $5. As far as I'm concerned, anything that hides the fact I didn't have the time (or the energy) to shower is a fav in my book. I've tried a few dry shampoos and what I liked about this one is it didn't give me super white, I look like I"m 100, hair. Score. It does smell a little like an air freshener so be wary.
  2. NutraSea with Vitamin D - I'll be honest here, I don't have a concrete  reason why I love this stuff. It was recommended to me by my naturopath years ago and I feel better when I take it. I took it all through my pregnancy (maybe that's why mini-me is so smart) and continue to take it. If you are interesting in fish oil, this is the one to take. *again, not a doc, so check with whoever you need to before taking.
  3. Print pant (and pixie pants in general) - I am in LOVE with these pants. They fit me well and come in lots of colors/prints. I NEVER would have worn print pants before but my friend Keila (who blogged about it at Mommy in Milwaukee) inspired me by looking so cute in her own print pants! You can always get these on sale at Old Navy. Just buy them, you won't regret it. They're thick enough that they don't show any skin imperfections (read: cellulite), a great length for shorties like me AND super comfy.
    I wore two pairs this week:

  4. Mini-me's birthday sign - so I always think I'm super crafty and then attempt to do something and fail.... miserably. So I attempted to create this sign on my own (because the internet told me that I easily could) and realized quickly that yes, I could do it, but it would involve learning a new program AND designing the thing. Um no. Luckily, my friend at Sweet Cheekers Designs was able to help me out. I LOVE the sign and it looked super cute in mini-me's one year pics today. Thanks Kirsten!
  5. No7 Renew and Protect Moisturizer and Serum - I think they sell this stuff everywhere. I love it. It's not crazy expensive and it makes my skin soooo nice. I've only used them together so I'm not sure which one is doing the magic. Either way, I've traded in my flaky dry skin for this new dewy and fresh stuff. BIG fan!
  6. Avocado holder -  avocado is delish and I could eat a whole one but apparently they're pretty high in fat (good fat) BUT everytime I eat half, the other half turns brown before I can enjoy it. Well, I fooled you ya sneaky little avocados! I found this bad boy and they keep half an avocado good for days with minimal browning. Wooohoo (yes, these are things I'm excited about). 
  7. Statement necklace - thank you Target for this little guy, I'm loving it this week! I bought it as a part of a Spring Style Challenge I'm doing and it's cute and affordable. Can't go wrong really!
    nice boob shot ;) You get the idea, even cute with a plain black T
  8. Red wine - well... I like wine. Of the red variety. If you know me, you're already well aware of this. This has been a fav this week while staying up late painting, cake decorating and otherwise party-prepping or house reno-ing. Yellow tail cab sav is a fav but almost any red will do!

Tomorrow is the big day, mini-me's birthday party! Stay-tuned for pics AND wish me luck, I'll need it!


  1. Hope the birthday party was fantastic! That avocado holder is genius - so glad you linked it. Have a great week!

  2. Thanks Lana! It was actually awesome I'll post about it eventually!
    The avocado thing is amazing, a lifesaver!


Love hearing from you!
