Brrrr!  It’s 17 but feels like -29 here this morning.  We’ve been stuck in this stupid polar vortex for a week now and I’m over it.

After finishing The Office for a second time, we started watching Parks & Rec (again) on Amazon’s streaming service.  Have you watched either of these?  I love them both, even moreso the second time around.


I finally picked up a case for my ipad and even though it’s nothing fancy, I’m pretty happy with it.  It’s very similar to the Apple case but I prefer this one because made of a thicker plastic and offers more protection.  What I love most about it is the little spot for my pencil – makes it less likely that I’ll lose it when traveling or bringing it with me to client meetings.

New Winter must-have alert!  When I was at Costco last week they had flannel sheets for $25 and I picked up a set.  I used to love flannel sheets in the Winter when I was a kid and after using them for a week and now I realize what I’ve been missing out on!  I thought they might be too hot but they’re actually perfect for this weather we’ve been having and they are SO cozy!

I needed a new moisturizer for the daytime so a few weeks ago I picked up this set from Nurture Yourself Gentle Hydration set from OleHenriksen.   So far I’ve only tried the Nurture Me Moisturizing Crème but really like it so far – it’s so thick and moisturizing and is an amazing base for foundation!


Indigo always has the cutest mugs and I’m seriously contemplating using a gift card I have on this insulated version.  I love my insulated water bottle and I’m so bad with getting hot drinks and forgetting about them, so this seems perfect for me!

Loving this simple but cute tie-front top from Old Navy – the pink stripes feel so Springy!

Jessica Braun was raving about these Essence Melted Chrome Eyeshadows recently and for $5.99, I think I need to pick up one or two to test out!

Urban Outfitters has some seriously beautiful duvet covers online – Iike this one!


These cat caps are hilarious but I think what would be even funnier is watching someone attempt to put this on their cat!



How to Walk Away – Katherine Center

This was a lessy-cheesy, slightly more realistic version of your standard romance novel.  I need to stop reading books like these because they just don’t interest me anymore but if this is your genre, I’d recommend it.

    Flannel sheets are THE BEST! It took me forever to convince Jordan to let me put them in the bed but now he’s a convert too!
