recent favorites

 Busted out my camera to capture a few of my recent favorites around the house!

Been on a nail polish buying spree lately! I blame Target, it's so easy to grab my favs!! 
{Blue - Butler Please! // Red - A List // Black - Licorice }

This body wash is like a ball of energy in a bottle! I love using every morning when the last thing I want is to be away from the comfy bed, instant pick-me-up!! (just don't get it in or near your eyes....to much tingle! Just speaking from, ya know, experience!)

 Getting old stinks, over the past 6 months I've noticed fine lines on my forehead appear. Or rather after making a crazy facial expressions, the lines don't go away completely. Gasp! I guess all those dramatic facial 'Say what's?!' scrunching my eyebrows all over the place and all those silly teen years baking in the sun have started to catch up. And probably just a little of regular 'ol life! I am not afraid of getting old, just want to do everything I can now to slow it down. (And the thought of wrinkles are kinda a little bit.. just sorta scary, not gonna lie!) A close friend from High School's Aunt is a Nerium AD Ambassador (and facebook friend!). So after reading all her posts, then emailing back and forth numerous times I decided to take the plunge. I placed my Nerium order! I was a bit hesitant at first, because it isn't the cheapest facial product I own - I wanted to be sure it was worth my investment. But I've been using it over a few months now, and I'm IN.LOVE!!!! Fine lines have lessened, and my skins texture is so much smoother!!! You know when your Husband says, something is different but can't say just 'what', that you are on to a good thing!!! I also noticed last month a few other bloggers were using it as well (via their postings), made me feel good that others were going to try as well! I am happy to pass on my contacts name and info if you would like to talk to her directly - she is amazing! Great purchase in my book! (I do the monthly auto-refill, so easy that it is just delivered when I'm getting low! One bottle does last me longer than a month though, so I just hold on to it until I'm ready!) 

 I love the way the afternoon light is looking on my babe, Freddy! Still alive and growing - we have had one new leaf pop! And yes I might have spent an hour reading about care online. Destined to not kill him! 

So glad the lady doing my nails didn't let me go dark for Fall! Now if only I could remember which Essie color I ran and grabbed on a whim! Summer is not done yet!!!

Now your turn, share: What have you been loving?

    1. Freddy is my new Fiddle Leaf - from IKEA!!! And he was only 13$!!!! Compared to all the other plant stores in the city, that was a steal!

      I would love a few succulents, but I've even been known to kill a cactus so I am afraid! :)
