Hi there! Hello! Welcome to the very first installment of My Favorite Things! My Favorite Things is a place where I share what I'm loving at the moment.
These are a few of my favorite things from February:
- Show: The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel
Oh my jeepers, this show is HILARIOUS!!! Seriously, it's one of the best shows I've seen it a long time. If you haven't seen it yet, watch it, you won't be disappointed! You can find it on AmazonPrime.
- Book: The Lying Game by Ruth Ware
I've been reading a lot of books from Reese Witherspoon's Book Club and this is one of the selections from last year. It is a thrilling page turner for sure! I always read before falling asleep at night and with most books I can get through four or five pages before I have to close my eyes. This one I couldn't put down, much to the annoyance of The Hubs who was trying to sleep... I should really invest in a good book light. Hee, hee! Oops!
- App: Down Dog
One of my goals for the year is to have a daily yoga practice. It's honestly working out to be more like a 3-day a week practice, but I'm still good with that. This is the app I use so I can practice at home. You can choose how long you want your session to be and your level of experience. I've been using it for over two years and it's been great, plus it's FREE!
- YouTube channel: Good Mythical Morning
This is where I get my daily dose of funny, these guys crack. me. UP!
- Household product: The Magic Bullet
I LOVE smoothies and with this I can make a single serving and it's super easy to clean. I used to use the blender, but I always made WAY too much and would have to throw most out. Apparently I think I need to fill up the entire container with all the smoothie goodness. The Magic Bullet helps me rein that in. Awesome!
- Office supply: Simplified Planner, Daily Edition
I am SUCH a planner girl and paper planners are my favorite! I use iCal for my schedule so I can set up reminders on my phone, but I love to have a planner physically sitting in front of me as well (I'm visual that way). For my to do list, I have to write it out. I know there are awesome task management apps out there, but I find great satisfaction in checking that box when the task is DONE. This planner is great because my daily schedule and task lists are right next to each other on one page, plus it's so dang pretty and I love me some pretty!
- Song: Shape of You by Ed Sheeran
This song has been a favorite of mine for a few months. I can't get enough. SO good!!!
- Art supply: Prima Watercolor Confections
This is my new favorite watercolor set. You can read more about why I love it so much in my Artsy Goodness blog post here.
- Podcast: Deadly Manners
Deadly Manners is a dark comedy/murder-mystery podcast whose cast includes: Kristen Bell and Rupaul, among others, and is narrated by Levar Burton. I love listening to business and story-based podcasts while I'm working in the office and this is a fun one!
- Dani Claire Product: Watercolor Poppies iPhone Case
I've been wanting to create designs for iPhone cases for a while and I finally did it! I designed a daisy case for my iPhone and loved how it turned out so much that I designed a poppy case for the art shop. This tough case version is perfect for protecting your phone (you know how slippery they can be) and it's pretty. I'll be adding more designs soon!
What are some of your favorite things? Tell me, I would love to check them out!
P.S. I am in no way affiliated with any of these companies (except Dani Claire, of course), I'm just sharing because I think you'll love these things too.
