new & old


hi lovelies.  i thought i’d share a few things, new and old, that i’m loving at the moment.  a few new purchases and a few things i’ve had around the house for quite awhile.


apple tv  / i had no idea.  really.  i mean, i’m an apple devotee but i thought that apple tv was just not really a necessary apple family memeber.  well, i was wrong.  way wrong.  we had netflix and i kind of loathed it.  that is, until apple tv.  it makes everything easy and pretty.  oh so pretty.  but, duh, that is what apple does.  you can search kids show by characters (which look like they just might jump off the tv + come babysit your kids — hey apple, can you make that happen?) which i love.  and the whole set up is so easy, that the kids can easily work it.

gold glitter toms / so maybe my husband still calls me a leprachaun every time i wear these but i don’t care.  i still love slipping these on and the reaction i get every time i wear them.  little girls love them and older people, almost, can’t stand them.  who knew gold glitter would make me feel so rebellious.

bare minerals / truth be told, this powder had been wasting away in makeup drawer, as i had been schlepping on another popular brand’s mineral powder for the past year or so.  last week, i thought why not give good old bare minerals a go again.  let’s just say that the other powder is going in the trash.  hello, healthy glow, i was wondering where you had gone.

ray-ban folding wayfarer / these are new and i love them.  first i should tell you that they fold up, like into a tiny little square.  sold!  i haven’t had new sunglasses for quite a few years and i’m 100% happy with these.  i had been wanting ray-ban’s for awhile and last week after wearing my mom’s, well that just did it.

water / ok, this is random.  and yes, it’s free.  but can i just tell you how bad i was about drinking water, or really just any liquids.  on a normal day, i’d have 1/2 a cup of coffe,  1/2 a bottle of water and then maybe 1/2 a cup of tea at night.  this might have had something to do with getting dizzy and looking a bit haggard all the time.  last week, i made myself drink an entire bottle of water first thing in the morning.  friends, i felt so much better and i swear my skin looked brighter because of it.  i’m not gonna lie, i fell off the wagon this week but i’m going to do my best to keep at this.

what about you?  what are some new, old or random things that you are loving at the moment?  look around you just might surprise yourself.

    Love this post. After years of using an iPad I went back to a basic, boring Kindle to read on the train. I love that there are no bells and whistles and I can just enjoy my book!

    i am with you. i was reading on an ancient nook and then switched to ipad. and the truth is i can’t help myself from checking instagram, twitter, etc. i’ve been thinking about pulling out the old nook. but of course, the real truth is….i still prefer good old fashioned books the best. nothing like holding one in your hand! xo. t

    we’ve had apple tv for a while now but i feel like i’m just realizing its full potential of radness!!
    and anyone who looks sideways at those cute kicks is cray-zee, i say.

    and water!! dude, i love you for writing this because i wonder daily what the EF is so difficult about drinking enough water… i just can’t seem to make it happen, either! i’ll get on a kick but somehow i just don’t manage to sustain it! it’s like, i pour a glass then forget about it – or it gets taken by a thirsty little someone and then i just forget. bonkers! here’s to drinking more water… xx

    amen and amen. i just don’t like consuming liquids. and when i do i feel like i spend all day going back and forth to the bathroom. i’m gonna try to keep with it. right now, 2 water bottles a day is big deal for me (not counting meal time drinks) but i’m going to try to stick with it and keep adding.

    and really…the link? what is so weird was that when i proofed the post there was hyper link where i typed “apple tv” that i did not put there. kinda freaked me out. so i thought i changed them all to the target link? beyond me. ha!

    xoxo . t
