This week has been hashtag busy. I’m looking forward to a couple of days of down-time this weekend (as I’m sure you are too). Dave and I have a double-date on the calendar, and that’s about it. Oh, and Rudy needs a bath. So there you go, we’re booked solid. Now, let’s get right to the ramblings …
This week’s finds for “Favorite Things”
Just a few unrelated items I’ve been loving lately …
My favorite new shoes of the week
Even though the temperatures are starting to warm up here in the Bay Area, that doesn’t mean I’m ready for flip-flops quite yet. I’ve been interested in getting some shiny or leather slip-ons for quite some time and finally pulled the trigger on these this past weekend …
Need to save a few seconds of your life? Get shoes that don’t need to be tied and don’t require socks. YES. Loving these Report shoes.
I used a $10-off coupon when purchasing these at DSW, and I know I’ll get my money out of them as my new go-to yoga and weekend shoe. So comfy!
My favorite new scent of the week
Of course, my sweet Mom sends Dave, me and now Rudy presents for every holiday. I finally broke into this bottle of perfume that came in my Valentine’s Day package last month, and it’s so good. (And portable.)
I put perfume on almost every single day, and when I do, it’s usually more than a few sprays. In fact, I like a strong scent on me and on others as they pass by. I wonder if people smell me when I walk by? I hope so.
Have you ever looked up scent profiles for wine or perfume or even candles? It’s pretty entertaining? Here’s how the brand describes Daisy Dream: “The fruity-floral fragrance has a light and airy touch, bursting with top notes of blackberry, grapefruit and pear. The heart notes are introduced with a bouquet of jasmine, lychee and blue wisteria, and a medley of white woods, musks and coconut water reveal the base notes.” Coconut water? No wonder I like it!
My favorite tasty snack of the week
When it comes to my snacks these days, convenience is key. While I’ve tried nearly every protein/granola/energy bar out there, I always come back to a few standard favorites. Enter, the Larabar …
Chocolate chip, PB and dates? That’s a whole lot of delicious in one package. And fun fact, you can get a box of eight for $8 at Target. A steal!
This brand of bars is so incredibly clean and made exclusively from whole foods — no junk. My only complaint is that I can finish one in just three bites. I should probably eat two during snack-time. You think? Good stuff!
My favorite links of the week
Did you miss the latest on A Lady Goes West this week?
