Loving Lately

Morning, ladies. It's almost Friday, woohoo! Today I'm sharing some of my favorites from the past month. Some are new things, some are rediscovered things and some are just fun things, haha. Here's what I've been loving lately.

Our new, matching lamps. After months of mismatching lamps, Le Husband and I finally agreed on some we found at Target and I love the look they give our room.  We had to hit two different stores, but one of them ended up being on sale so it was worth it. The room is so much brighter and the paintings accent the lamp bases which brings the room together.

A few years ago I jumped on the Benefit train. Many bloggers mentioned High Beam so I bought me a bottle and started using it. However, after a few months I lost my bottle [sad face] but didn't choose to restock it. Well guess what, I found it and am in love again. It's not the cheapest product but I love the dewy glow it gives my skin.

Random, just because flowers. Le Husband keeps me on my toes and he brought these beauties home just last week. They are still blooming and bringing me joy everyday. 

This tweet by Emma Watson. Girls rule…don't let the dudes keep you down.

The Trivia Crack app is my new favorite toy. Y'all this app is straight up crack, I love playing it, even when I lose. I've been playing my sisters constantly and it's so much fun.

My new bread maker. Homegirl is the bombdotcom. I doubt I'll be buying bread ever again. I've only made two loaves, but can't wait to try random recipes. Hoping to tweak a paleo bread recipe soon, too. If it turns out well, I'll be sure to share it with y'all.

Coconut oil. Not only is it awesome to cook with, coconut oil is my favorite lotion in the winter. Yes, I said lotion. It is the best for dry skin, I love slathering it on after a shower, which is why I keep a jar in our bathroom. If you're suffering from dry skin, I suggest you try coconut oil instead of lotion, but that's just me.

Valentine's day cards. I love, love and Valentine's day is a wonderful day to celebrate all the people you love. I stocked up on cards for grandparents, family and of course, Le Husband the other day and I can't wait to send them out this week. YAY, LOVE! < 3

What are you loving lately, friends?

You always remind me how much I love and miss NCIS, ha ha! I think I'm going to have to buy all the seasons since Netflix still doesn't stream it.

Natalie H said...

Is the breadmaker hard?? I really want to try but I'm afraid it's too tedious. Love the new lamps and V-day cards! I need to get on that.

Amanda {Kids and Cabernet} said...

Coconut oil is amazing! Go you on the bread making - fresh bread tastes SO much better than the store bought stuff! And so cute of your husband to get you flowers!!

Alisha said...

Just because flowers are the very best kind. :)

Megan Parker said...

I agree with the coconut oil. I swear by it as lotion. Now I'm craving some bread.. that bread maker looks serious!

Queen In Between said...

Oh my goodness...that tweet!! I love her even more now. I had a bread maker once and it was amazing...I think I'm still carrying some of it around my waist!!

Sydney @ Raising Southern Grace said...

I love the Benefit line. Have you tried the mascara? Umm, life changing! Love me some coconut oil. Try using it to clean with!

Jess said...

I ove that you were watching NCIS in the lamp picture!! I'm obsessed with Trivia Crack too.

Laura - LaughterIsCatching.com said...

high beam is an amazing product!

Jessica said...

High Beam is my fave product aside from mascara and eyeliner (which I really need because my eyes and lashes are so pale). I just LOVE the little glow it gives you - always makes your skin look more fresh and bright. Best investment ever!

And look at all those fun cards! I actually did the same thing earlier this week, and sent a few off this morning (my sweet grandma will be so happy later this week!) Snail mail is the best!

Carly Blogs Here said...

I love all your valentines day cards and I can only imagine how amazing it would be to have a bread maker! Love your new lamps and the two pictures you have above the TV it frames that space so nicely! I've had my bottle of high beam FOREVER- it's one of those products that never runs out!

~Dawn~ said...

I can't wait to start making Valentine's with the girls this weekend. I love it...the cheesy cards and all. :)

Rebecca Jo said...

If I made my own bread, I know I'd gain an extra 50 lbs... at least...

Jessi @ Jessi's Design said...

LOVE the lamps (and those framed pieces and Gibbs on the tv hehe) I did see that tweet and though heck yea girl! Also, we have a bread maker and have YET to use it! Boo! We now need to add each other on trivia crack like asap!

Have a great day love!!

Jen said...

I have the same breadmaker! It is the best.

Kathy@RealTalk said...

YES to coconut oil! i keep a jar beside my bed and slather that shizz on my hands before i sleep. i use argan oil on my face <-- best thing ever.

Lindsay @ Broke and Bougie said...

What! I cook with coconut oil every day... looks like I should rub some on my skin while I'm at it (:

The Pink Growl said...

I have been straight up obsessed with Trivia Crack for a couple months now. It's my to go time waster!

Julia said...

Ohh yummy fresh bread! I have a breadmaker but I haven't used it in so long!

Brittany @ Perpetually Daydreaming said...

Oooh! I've always been intrigued by breadmakers and let's face it, I have a love affair with bread. And I love your vday cards! So fun. I love sending out cards for vday, but I've completely spaced it this year. Guess I better get on it..

Katie @ yellowmangolife.blogspot.com said...

So I haven't jumped on the Benefit bandwagon yet either....maybe I need to??

And I might be cursing you later...I just downloaded the trivia app. As if I needed another time suck =)

Katie Elizabeth said...

Love the new lamps!! They look perfect around the TV! And a bread maker - I'm jealous! I've been wanting one forever.. is making a loaf of bread easy/comparable to the price at the grocery store? Just trying to see if it's worth the splurge!

Kay R. said...

That bread maker is pretty sleek and cute. Go you for all the cooking you do!

Carolyn said...

OMG! I've wanted a bread maker forever!! Does it really make good, fluffy sandwich bread??

Tori G said...

Those flowers are beautiful and I most def need a bread maker in my life!

Amanda - Voyage of the MeeMee said...

Love the idea of putting matching lamps on either side. I never would've thought of that... it looks great!
I want a breadmaker!!!!!!
