Tears rolled (and just kept rolling) out of my head and all over Nick last night just because he said… (wait for it)… something very sweet. It’s been grey and shitty here in Charlotte for going on, I don’t know, a month straight, and while the weekend promises sunshine and a rise in temperature, I expect little relief from my temporary insanity until about April. God help us all.
So while hormones and winter rage, let’s talk about good things.
The Day Designer
If you’re looking for the most expensive paper planner on earth, I have found it for you. I saw this lovely little book making the rounds on Instagram and since I struggle to say no to anything with black and white stripes, I added it to my Christmas list. I’m actually not doing a great job keeping up with it for my whole life daily, but I do use it as a daily editorial calendar for this very blog and if I can keep that up for a year, it will have been worth it.
Nick got me this crazy cat lady mug and it is accurate.
Camille Rose Naturals Fresh Curl
This is my new favorite curl product. I put it on soaking wet hair while I’m still in the shower and then DO NOT TOUCH HAIR UNTIL DRY. Just wrap it into a towel and watch Real Housewives for a few hours. (It’s cruelty-free and you can find it at Target.)
Talking Under Water
My internet-turned-real friend Elise sent me this well-timed book on how to make your cat an internet celebrity along with her band’s new album… IN THE FORM OF A CASSETTE TAPE. It comes with a download card, which I suppose is what you’re supposed to do with it since it’s the future and all, but since I actually still have a cassette player in my car that has never been touched I wanted to go that route instead. Their music is so so good. I should get all their autographs now while I still can.
Trader Joe’s never lets me down. These crispy broccoli florets taste exactly like the dried crunchy version of the roasted ones I make. I love them. I’ve been eating them sparingly because rumor has it they will bloat you up like a balloon.
On the Internet
Life Goals a la Love Taza – I love this ultra hip little family, and they are basically my life goal.
Buckeye Brownies HOLY LORD – I don’t know how I found these, but I am making a vegan version this weekend.
Salted Espresso Caramels with Billy – Favorite blog evaaaaaaar.
