I love writing these posts! I realized I haven’t done one in awhile though so thought this would be fun to celebrate December 1st! Wait…is it really December 1st? Like, Christmas is in a couple weeks? Like I still haven’t bought my Christmas plane tickets and am now going to be royally screwed? Okay yeah, just checking.
Here’s a list of what I’m really loving now from shoes, to food, to clothes to makeup. Enjoy!
Herringbone Toms! I’ve been wanting to get some Toms shoes for awhile now and after seeing these on Pinterest a few weeks ago, I finally made the order. I wear them with just about everything from yoga pants to jeans to skirts and, like everyone says, they are SO comfy.
Mama Pea’s Chickpea Tacos. I make these all the time and am currently making them yet again tonight! Adam loves them and the two of us can easily eat the entire recipe (that I think is supposed to feed four). Oops. A very typical dinner rotation in my house looks like this: chickpea tacos. white chicken chili. chicken and dumplings. Repeat.
Ahava Mineral Botanic Velvet Cream Wash. I have VERY dry skin and this has been the only body wash that leaves me feeling like I just slathered on the moisturizer. It doesn’t leave any sort of greasy film or residue on your skin—only velvet softness. Plus, it smells absolutely amazing! I got this at Ulta two months ago and I’m not even 1/4th of the way through the bottle!
Mrs. Meyers scented candles. I burn candles at home every night and needed a new one so I bought this Iowa pine scented one from Target, as well as another spice cake scented one. They smell amazing and burn super slow. Some Christmas tree-smelling candles tend to smell like cleaning solution (anyone? anyone?) but this definitely does not. It smells amazing!
Ornaments to Remember. Sticky bun ORNAMENTS?!?!?! Yes, please. I’m getting my first Christmas tree this year and decided it will be a total dessert tree, decorated with these little beauties. There’s also cake slices, cupcakes, fortune cookies, ice cream bars and more! Seriously the cutest thing I’ve ever seen.
Lululemon Wunder Unders. I live in these pants. They are so comfy cozy and perfect for just about anything from yoga class to under a cut little dress with boots. I used to think Groove pants were my favorite, but after purchasing a pair of these guys awhile ago, I have come to change my mind. I pull the extra material under my feet and it keeps me warm and cozy!
Philosophy Birthday Cake Lip Shine. I’ve never been a big lipstick girl (too much taste testing happening round here) but I do love lip gloss and this is the best one I’ve found…ever. It’s super shiny without being overly sticky and BONUS! it tastes just like cake. I’m constantly running out and buying more–it’s one of those products I keep in my purse or pocket at all times.
Frye Boots in “Melissa” style. I saved the very best for last! Yes, these boots are expensive but they are worth it….I promise! I never in a million years would have pinned myself as a person that would EVER spend over one hundred dollars on a pair of shoes but the second these puppies were on my feet, I knew. I was tired of spending fifty bucks on a pair of boots every winter and then wearing those boots into the ground, so I decided to take the plunge and buy these. I bought them in September and I would say that I wear them six out of seven days a week now. They’re beautiful, comfortable and look good just about anything. When I was home, my dad shined them for me and it felt like I have a whole new pair of boots! Every time I wear them I get compliments (mine are the Cognac color). Do it.
