Reading Lysa TerKeurst's latest book, Uninvited. I've cried, smiled, and cried some more while reading this book. I think it's something that we all can relate to at one time or another. And Lysa takes our feelings of being uninvited- left out- back to where that feeling started. It's truly an eye-opener, and I'm only a few chapters in so far!
After plodding along with an iPhone 5 for quite some time, I finally made a SIGNIFICANT phone upgrade, and purchased the iPhone 7 the day it came out. So far, loving it! And how cute is the rose gold color with the Kate Spade case? The camera on that thing is amazing too!
I've started a nice little tradition before bed which is a cup of tea (occasionally a latte) in my Johnson Brothers teacups with a side of real Scottish shortbread. It's a relaxing and elegant experience, and I just love the not-overly-sweet shortbread treat. I feel incredibly "Downton Abbey"-esque with my new little tradition!
I walked into Target to get kitty litter and laundry soap the other day (it always starts with something innocent like that), and walked out with this hat. Maybe it's because I'm binge-wathing Downton Abbey again, but I couldn't resist. It's so 1920's, and reminds me of one of Lady Mary's hats! It's a gorgeous wine color that will match my long camel-colored J. Crew coat for winter!
My sister and I discovered these body oils at TJ Maxx and have been collecting them since! So far, I've found the jasmine, lavender, rose hip, and amaranth. They smell AMAZING and I love the dried flowers inside. They remind me of a similar product on the Anthropologie site, only these are by a company called Measurable Difference. I use the lavender on my temples and under my nose for relaxation at night, and I use all of them on my skin for moisturizer. Plus, they are fantastic on your legs after shaving! Check out your local TJ Maxx, Marshalls, or Homegoods. I've seen them at all three stores. (And I'm still looking for the jasmine. My sister found it, but I haven't been able to locate at it at a store near me yet!)
Well friends, hope you have a great week!
