Pink lemonade and chocolate-chip cookies
Pink lemonade and chocolate-chip cookies! Hello, my new favorite snack. 🙂
El Hub thinks I’m a little nuts to love this combo as much as I do because for him, it’s all about milk and cookies (for dunking), but the pink lemonade combo is totally working for me.
Not to dunk though. I don’t dunk the cookies in the lemonade. I just like to have them together. I like the contrasting taste of the tart lemonade (ha! I almost wrote “Tarte lemonade”) with the sweetness of the cookies.
Oh! — and lemonade has to be cold and pink. Don’t ask me why; it just does.
I really like Trader Joe’s Low-Calorie Pink Lemonade Made With Organic Lemon Juice… As usual, TJ’s gets it right.
Kerastase Spray Fluidissime…for unruly bangs!
So I’ve had this bottle of Kerastase Spray Fluidissime ($42 for a 5.1 fl-oz. bottle) for a while, and it’s basically an anti-frizz, thermal-protecting, shine-boosting spray that you spray on wet hair, and then either air or blow dry.
I mostly just used it on long sections of my hair from about mid-length down to the ends, where it does a great job, but for reasons unknown, it never occurred to me to try it on my bangs…
Until the other day.
Wow, it works great! It tames my mischievous, frizzy side-swept bangs, which have gotten long and rebellious lately because I’m way overdue for a trim.
This spray totally tames their inner beast. I just spray a few spritzes on my bangs while they’re wet, then dry with a brush and a hair dryer.
It makes my hair smooth, silky and well-behaved, and it holds the side-swept shape perfectly.
I liked this spray before…BUT NOW I LURVE IT.
This “K” mug from HomeGoods
First things first, I need to stop going to HomeGoods…
Because every time I walk in there, I walk out with another mug, and I am the LAST person in the world who needs another mug.
Let me put it this way: there are only two sad glasses in my kitchen cupboard (because El Hub, who works part time as a bull in a china shop, broke the rest) and about 20 mugs.
This one is my new favorite. 🙂 I got it to replace the Anthropologie mug I used to have that had the letter “K” on it because, surprise! — El Hub broke it.
This one is by Signature Housewares, and it was just $4. It’s big and deep, and I like that it doesn’t get molten hot when I warm something up in the microwave.
I will enjoy the time we have together until El Hub breaks it…which should happen some time within the next few weeks.
Sephora Tidy Detangling Comb
I love this dang thing. I use it in the shower at night to work conditioner through my hair, and then use it again the next morning to detangle. It gets out all the knots without messing up my waves, and it feels effing fantastic on my scalp. It doesn’t feel pokey at all. Just really, really good.
The “Sephora” label on it is already starting to fade, but it sure as heck doesn’t hurt the comb. This is the best $8 I’ve spent there in a while.
Live Love Pop Truffle Salt Popcorn
I may or may not have eaten half of this bag of Live Love Pop Truffle Salt Popcorn ($4.25) since I opened it a few days ago.
WHOOPS! I just tripped and they all fell into my mouth… 🙁
They aren’t super salty, oily, buttery or flavored, but there is a hint of truffle (I guess that’s what it is). Anyway, they’re just good, and only 35 calories per cup!
Yup, they were another HomeGoods find.
Your turn, my friend. What are a few things you’ve been loving lately? Any category is fair game — noms, makeup, hair clips, accessories, writing pens, patterned socks, cooking appliances, noms…
