seven little products i love




LESS THAN TWO WEEKS UNTIL EUROPE!!!! aaaaah!! can i get some confetti throwing and champagne poppin' up in here!? also, i have so much to do, i think my head might esplode. so stay tuned for that. :)

a friend of mine recently started a blog of her own (she's a master of organization...like seriously though) and she has a fun little series where she shares internet finds or items she has and loves, and i thought i'd steal the idea for the week. :) you guys should definitely give her blog a looksee!

1. this little owl bowl sits on my night stand and is filled with random earrings and rings that i take off at the end of each day. it's nothing special (except it's stinkin' cute), but it makes me happy every time i see that happy little owl.

2. i know this may seem silly, but this spatula is the spatula of all spatula. i thought they were all created equal, but i was wrong. i don't even know where to get one's like these because my mom found this one for me. it's really thin so it's a master at getting under things.

3. a little fact about me: i'm a straw FANATIC. i always use straws. i usually just buy throw away ones, but the other day while i was shopping at target i saw these in the oh joy! collection. you guys. they're reausable straws and they're way cute and they're only like four dollars. WINNING!

4. nyc nail polish is super cheap. like a dollar.
that. is. what. i'm. talkin'. about.
i don't really buy expensive nail polish that's supposed to last forever and ever...mostly because i get bored of the color after two days anways! so this cheap nail polish (which actually has some pretty good staying power) works best for me most days!

5. dry shampoo is a stinking life saver. a little moment of honesty, i only wash my hair every like five days. i used to wash it every day, but it was always greasy and limp and dumb. so i started washing it less frequently and (after a month of my hair rebelling against me) voila! my hair is now more manageable and less greasy. it's awesome. anyways, one thing that helps tons is dry shampoo. i've tried all different brands, but i love dove the best (bonus, it's one of the cheaper options!)

6. kyle recently bought this blue tooth speaker and i love it. i use it with my ipad and phone all the time. wanna jam to some music super loud? BOOM.

7. living in a tiny apartment is awesome. except when you cook, it smells like dinner for-ev-er. so, that brings us to candles. i looove candles, but i've always been really sensitive to smells. if a candle scent is too strong i have headaches for daaaays. so when i find one that's a yummy smell, but not too strong, i snatch them up. this mandarin and lavendar scent is AMAZING. refreshing without being over powering. (it's normally waaaay to expensive so i just get my fix by smelling them every time i'm in target, but for some reason this scent was on clearance for $2! heyo!)


okay. time to go knock out some items on my to-do list! :)
