things i love lately

January 26, 2016

Hi friends! Today I wanted to pop in with something fun, just share a few of the things I’m loving lately. Let’s get to it!

things i love one

Aerosoles Landlock Chukka Boots – I have been on the lookout for casual booties for quite awhile now, but it’s tough for me since I have wide feet. My friend Maggie ordered these and let me try them on – lucky for me we wear the same size – and they are SO comfortable. The soft suede makes them great for wide feet, too. I immediately ordered some in black but went back to get the this taupe color as well!

Madre Beads – I’m a brand ambassador for this awesome mama-run small business, so I get a small discount on their products which is great for me because they are so high quality, add a playful and stylish twist to my usual boring outfits, and I’m supporting a maker. I just placed a huge order now that the shop is restocked and I can’t wait for it to get here!

Beautycounter Lip Sheers – I recently discovered this brand and have been so impressed with everything I’ve tried from them. I’m currently obsessed with the lip sheers which glide on so smoothly and make me actually want to wear lipstick! (Link goes to my consultant’s page who I love to support!)

Wildly Co. – This is another small business I love! They have a line of ethically produced children’s clothing – it’s like a capsule wardrobe for kids! I’m particularly loving this hoodie, which is on sale btw, because it’s perfect for our Houston “winters.”

things i love two

Cake pops – I’m happy to say that I’ve solved a lifelong conundrum: what is my favorite dessert? Well, it’s cake pops. And I’ve only tried them from Starbucks! I think I need to take it to another level and make it my mission to try out every other local baker.

Jord Ely watch – I won this watch in a giveaway ages ago, but couldn’t wear it because it was huge on my wrist. If you buy the watches yourself you can easily size them, but since I didn’t I had to figure out how to remove links and it wasn’t easy. I’m thankful for Dads with mechanical knowledge and the right tools. But now I love it so much and I always get compliments when I wear it.

What Should I Read Next podcast – Yes I’m still way into podcasts and I’m still very picky about the ones I add to my permanent subscribe list. This is a new one hosted by one of my favorite bloggers whose taste in and knowledge of books I admire. It’s pretty short, funny at times, interesting, and just so clever.

Hair Skin Nails – This is a supplement that It Works sells (I’m an independent distributor for them) and for so long I didn’t think I needed to try it because I wasn’t interested in growing out my hair. Well, then I chopped it a little too short so I figured I’d give it a try. Just two weeks into taking it I suddenly began receiving compliments on my hair from random people. I do think my hair is growing faster, but more than that my hair is thicker and stronger than ever (and I have superfine hair so that’s important). It’s a customer favorite and I see why! (At the link you’ll have to search for the product!)

That’s it, just a few new things I’m loving. How about you?

    Thanks for sharing your podcast recommendation – I checked it out this week and am loving it! I wasn’t familiar with the host’s blog,either, so now I have a new blog to read, too. ;)

    From Holly:

    I love cake pops from Starbucks too! One of my friends used to work there and she got to bring any leftover cake pops home at the end of her shift, since they just throw them out. She was really good about sharing! Now I have to buy my own :(
