A Few of my Favorite Things

I've figured out that the best way for me to find awesome things is to read blogs. I'm going to do you all a favor and share some favorites with you back.

1 - Whine About It on Tumblr and then laugh your ass off.

2 - The Instax Camera that you can order on Amazon for a better price than Urban Outfitters. Social media swallows all of your pictures these days. It's fun to have a few that are just for you (not in the naked way.) We take a family picture every Sunday wherever we are and it's a super fun little tradition.

3 - I love getting mail and have tried stitch fix and a few others, but there is one box that I haven't taken a break from yet. It only comes quarterly which means it's less "stuff" that I don't use and it's not a $300 habit.  This box is called the FabFitFun box and if you click on this link you will receive $10 off your first box.

The summer box included a jump rope, a beautiful horseshoe necklace, a wireless speaker and a few different beauty products - plus I got a 3 month subscription to Headspace which is a meditation app that I've used in the past and loved.  I wish they had a better name that FabFitFun, but I would still recommend it if you're looking for something like that to try. Here is a full report, plus a photo from To Live & Diet in LA

4 - I got some new spray for my hair in that very subscription box and I absolutely love it so I'm including it by itself. First of all, it's called I'll Make You Look Amazing daily spray. Aside from that, I love the smell and how it makes my hair feel. I'll probably try the shampoo and conditioner in the travel size once I've used up my current supply of Aveda. The brand is Gorge Hair and their website is here.

5 - If you are coming home from the grocery store or Target with 20 plastic bags, please stop. These bags are the greatest reusable bags in the entire world. Seriously, they roll up into a tiny ball that can be kept in your purse always. They hold a ton of stuff and they are extremely durable. Plus, they have a soft pad on the shoulder strap. I own three and will probably get more.

And last but not least, if you haven't watch Grace & Frankie yet, it's a good (and quick) binge watch on Netflix. I didn't number this because 5 always seems like a good number.

Tell me, do you get any subscription boxes?  Do you recommend them? Hope you're having a wonderful hump day.


  1. First, LOVE your new design. That photo strip at the top is perfect!!

    Second, a weekly family photo? Stop with the cuteness please ;)

  2. I love my instax..tiny Polaroid pictures are so fun!

  3. That subscription box looks awesome! I might have to give it a try.

    Also- Grace and Frankie- I loved it!

  4. WELP. I got the FFF box and three bags. Timely as it's actually time for me to replace a few of mine and I like ones that can be carried in my bag.

    Your header is what I'm talking about. Will you be insane like me and switch those photos out frequently or are they staying?

  5. Loving the design and the fun pictures at the top!!! :) I love my reusable grocery bags!

  6. Whine About It is one of the best discoveries of 2015. I always find my self laughing hysterically and wanting to be like PREACH. It's so true.


Thanks for reading my ramblings. It makes my heart happy.
