I haven't done a post about stuff I like in awhile. I love reading these when other people do them. You'll notice a recurring theme with some of these items.

1. Veggies from Trader Joe's.
Love this stuff! I use it for all sorts of stuff. I put it in my wraps that I eat for lunch. I love that's it's crunchy & it's a great way to add veggies. I also mix it in when I scramble eggs, I add it to salads too. Most people say that it's more expensive to buy the stuff already chopped rather than chopping it myself. The problem with that is, it's just Dean & I & he doesn't eat a lot of veggies & everything ends up going bad before I can eat it. It's definitely cheaper for me to buy this. I get a variety & I don't have to do anything. I think it's $3.00.

2. Spinach & Kale Greek Yogurt Dip
This is what Dean likes to call an "experimental item". So so so good! It's much less calories than the spinach I make. Now, when you eat half of the container in one sitting it's still too many calories. Because of that this isn't an every Trader Joe's trip purchase.

3. OPI's I'll Take The Cake
This is what I'm referring to as my signature color. I've been getting it almost every time I get my nails done. Is neutral & has a little shimmer. This picture isn't mine & it's not my hand. It's a google image.

4. This brush is a life changer
Do you have any idea how hard it is to blow dry your hair just holding the brush part? HARD! Trust me. It's a 2" round brush by Global Keratin. I bought it at the salon I go to after Alexy used it on my hair. $25. Pricey but worth every penny. The only issue I have is that I've dropped it NUMEROUS times. Dropping it on ceramic tile has taken it's toll. The first time it broke it was a clean break & Dean was able to super glue it. The second time it broke, it was the same thing. Sadly, three strikes & you're out. It's not a nice break & it won't be glued back together. I fixed my hair with a regular brush & realized just how awesome this one is. It gives you so much volume. If I take a little more time I can completely fix my hair using only this brush. With me that's unheard of because I can't stand how I look with flat hair. Have no fear, a replacement will be here Saturday. Thanks Amazon! Did I mention it's HALF THE PRICE! Yay!

5. Tortilla's from Trader Joe's!
These are really good. About 30 more calories than the kind I was buying but I like these better & they're healthier.

6. Trader Joe's Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal
I'm not a fan of apples unless they're cooked & there are little chunks of apples in this oatmeal. So So good!

What are y'all lovin' these days?



  1. I'm going to look at that brush!! And I'm the opposite. I love apples raw but don't eat them cooked!

  2. I love hearing about things that are new to me, although I have tried the kale and spinach dip. And yes, I'm learning that even though it's packed with good veggies, you can't eat a tub of it in a day! I'm good with buying a lot of veggies. I cut a lot of stuff up when I get home. But fruit is different, I get the mixed, cut up containers.

    Maybe I'm blonde, but I'm not getting why this brush is working better. Is it lighter to hold? At first I thought it attached to your blow dryer. It looks interesting. I have curly/frizzy hair and I work to get it straight. But it would be nice to get some volume on top and maybe get the ends to curl a little.

    Thanks! :)


  3. That is a very pretty nail polish! Sometimes I like neutrals and other times I'm all about a super-dark color. So glad to see you are enjoying your new Trader Joe's. Have you tried any of their wines? They have some of the best "cheap" wines around -- we are definitely not wine snobs in this house!

  4. Oh my goodness, I LOVE Trader Joe's!!! I spend way too much money in there (I like grocery shopping as much as I enjoy clothes shopping, does that make me weird???). And I really like that nail polish color! I always do bright colors on my toes but when it comes to my fingernails, I like to keep it neutral and clean looking. What a great list!

  5. I wish we had a Trader Joe's here. :-( We go to the one in ATL when we visit my Aunt.
    I love that nail color!!
