Hello, hello! Wow it’s been 3 weeks since my last post. The month just got away from me with all the holiday fun. It was a really good month and we have one last hurrah this weekend for NYE but after that I am hoping life slows down a bit. I plan on setting some goals and kicking 2017 off with a bang!
Today I thought I would talk about some of my favorite things lately. I love reading other blogs and what they have been using so hopefully you see something you like too! Some are Christmas gifts I received and some are things I have bought on my own but either way I am LOVING them.
I bought this Hydroflask around Thanksgiving and I couldn’t be more obsessed. It’s definitely a little more pricey for a water bottle but in my opinion it’s worth it. A lot of insulated water bottles have stainless steel mouth pieces and I don’t always like it. This one has a straw option lid and it is perfect! It keeps ice all day and as long as the straw is closed it doesn’t leak. Plus I think it is super cute and love the color!
This stuff is great! I use it for a primer for lipstick and it really does help with feathering and making lipstick last longer. Plus when I am using matte lipstick the jojoba oil in it helps nourish your lips. You can also use it for mascara mistakes or to be a primer for blemishes! It does everything.
(Both are currently on sale for under $100)
I bought some new Nikes with gift cards from Christmas. I decided to buy the Nike Free RN Distance after trying them on in store and liking the feel of them. They seem like they have good support and have more structure than the Flyknit. I have a bad knee so I need some more support when I run. I will let you know how I am feeling about them after I put them to more use.
I have a pair of the older Flyknits and I really like them for lifting or when I’m doing the stairclimber or elliptical. They are a more of a “barefoot” feel to them. I like to have a pair of shoes for running and a pair for other workouts so this is perfect. Plus the colors in the show make me happy!
One of my goals for 2017 is to incorporate new meals and recipes into our day to day lives. We get stuck in a rut and rotate through the same things over and over again. I have tried a couple of her recipes from The Skinnytaste Blog and really liked them so I bit the bullet and bought her book. I went through it after I got it and there are so many recipes I can’t wait to try!
I put these slippers on my Christmas list because they looked so cozy online and they didn’t disappoint! They are so soft and wrap your foot up in fluffy shearling. I have had gray slippers for the past year and love it because they look cute with all my PJs. They are currently on sale for under $20 and they have brown as well. Go get some stat!!
It is time for bed because we have brunch plans and then a fun night out in Lawrence with some of our friends. Be safe and have a Happy New Years!!!
