Things I’m currently in love with in no particular order:
Arnica gel a few years ago one of my trainers suggested I use arnica gel on my knees after working out for my arthritis; finally a few months ago I picked some up and am kicking myself for not buying it sooner the stuff is amazing and it also works on burns.
My new XFINITY cable box/DVR that operates on the new “X1 Entertainment Operating System™” I can record 4 shows at once! And it’s so much easier to navigate and use though it is contributing greatly to my couch potato status. I typically have nothing nice to say about Comcast but I like this, at least today I do.
Arnold Palmers, I love ice tea and recently fell in love with lemonade and Arnold Palmer’s have become my drink of choice, well behind my beloved Diet Coke that is. The funny thing is in high school I loved my dad’s Arnold Palmer cardigans and stole them all from him. Apparently I like things associated with old golfers.
San Diego brunches, since they are all new to me I love them and want to put them ALL.IN.MY.MOUTH.NOW. I wasn’t a big brunch fan until I moved to Seattle and discovering all the great brunches in San Diego has been delicious. If you’re in San Diego feel free to leave me your favorite brunch spot in the comments. Some of my favorites so far are: Hash House A Go Go, Tractor Room, Great Maple, Snooze AM Eatery, R Gang Eatery, Waypoint Public
The fact that Fall is just around the corner! I heart Fall so hard! The weather is cooler, there are less people driving and parking on my street, the sunsets are earlier, the leaves change colors, its perfect soup making weather, burning candles is appropriate, wrapping up in a blanket on the couch is acceptable, wearing all kinds of layers is necessary, the list goes on and on, it just makes me happy.
Tacos, while I was in San Diego and now that I’m back in Seattle all I want are tacos, tacos and more tacos. They are just tasty little treats that I want to “poner en mi boca.”
The book Where’d You Go Bernadette? This was a great airplane book, light, funny and it was based in Seattle with some Antarctica thrown in.
bareSkin® Pure Brightening Serum Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20 by bareMinerals for years and I mean years I used liquid foundations, I had my own blend made for me by Prescriptives that I loved but once Nordstrom stopped carrying the Prescriptive line I had to find something new. I tried many different brands and formulas and hated them all until one day I discovered bareMinerals I was reluctant to do the whole powder thing but ended up loving it and using it for the past 5/6 years and thought I’d never go back to liquid. I recently tried their new bareSkin liquid foundation and fell in love with liquid foundation all over again, the stuff is amazing, very light weight and provides just the right amount of coverage I’m looking for. I LOVE.LOVE.LOVE it.
LORAC ‘Unzipped’ Shimmer & Matte Eyeshadow Palette I had some Nordstrom rewards to use up and decided to splurge on this eye shadow palette and OMG I’m glad I did, it’s beautiful. Every shade is usable and the pigmentation is insane. And even if I don’t use a primer they stay and don’t crease, when traveling it will be the only eye shadows I bring with me.
My Sonicare Essence Rechargeable sonic toothbrush and my Clarasonic Mia 2 when I travel I don’t take either of these with me, I’d rather save the ‘weight’ of them for another pair of shoes or more clothes. So when I come home after being gone for 2 or 3 weeks it’s like a spa treatment to my teeth and my face and I fall in love with them all over again.
LUSH Seanik solid shampoo bar, I’m always looking for new hair products and now that I don’t wash my hair everyday anymore, yay for dry shampoo, I wanted something different than what I was using before to get my hair squeaky clean on the days I washed it. This Seanik did the trip, squeaky clean without drying, striping and no conditioner needed, thanks to the shampoo and my Wet Brush and to top it off it is super easy to travel with no size limit since it’s not a liquid!
New underwear I have a habit of putting my thumbnail through my underwear, weird I know but it happens and about 50% of my underwear all had thumb holes on their sides so I recently purchased some replacements and there’s nothing better than putting on a new clean pair of panties that have no little thumb holes in them.
The fact that MAC will be at the 32nd Street Navy Exchange the next time I’m in San Diego! I’ve been holding out on repurchasing a few items I’m running low on because I know I can get it there for cheaper, well basically free because I can get my dad to buy it for me than forget to pay him back because I’m still a spoiled daddy’s girl at my age.
