Can you believe tomorrow is September 1st?!?!
It seems like just yesterday I was on a red eye flight coming home to surprise my mom for Mother’s Day. Or…racing in an ambulance to a Tahoe hospital after Adam crushed his shoulder on the slopes. <—there’s a video of that somewhere on the internets but I can’t force myself to relive the memory.
Anyway! I haven’t done one of these posts in awhile so here’s a few things I’m really loving now. Starting with the above espresso.
I have one every single morning. It’s the perfect accompaniment to bible reading in bed. That way my prayers are extra fast and caffeinated. I
think hope Jesus understands.
My mom works at a spa so I get dibs on the good stuff, and this Moroccan oil has quite simply changed my life. I was never a believer before, but it really is gold in a bottle. One little drop on your ends after getting out of the shower equals silky soft hair all day long. It’s totally amazing and rumor has it, you can get it on Amazon! What can’t you get on Amazon?
And while we’re talking beauty products, let me introduce you to my favorite lotion on the face of this great earth. Once you use this stuff you’ll never be able to use anything else again. It’s that addicting. It’s perfect for the red chapped hands of those of us that dishes all day! I started using it in college and can’t go a day without it.
My parents just brought me this photo of my grandparents circa 1969. Isn’t it fab?
This book by Helene has really changed the way I look at photography! In my opinion, it’s the best resource out there for food bloggers and there’s some great recipes in it as well! If you buy one book on food photography, make this it.
Big hipster glasses? Yes, no??? I can’t decide. These actually aren’t mine—they were part of a free home try on program by Warby Parker. I sent them back the other day but since I need new glasses anyway, I’m still considering ordering them (my grandfather appears to be wearing them as well in the above photo). And then sitting in my house afraid to go outside.
These brownies. Again and again and again. Things like this never get old.
