I know there are a lot of gift guides out there right now, this is not one of them. It’s just some things that make me happy, some you can buy, some you can’t. Sometimes it’s nice to think on what you already have and enjoy, makes you savor them a bit more without needing to add more to your life.
Here are a list of my favorite things at the moment! Along with raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens of course!
My new ski boots (see above) and my new ski pass that Chris just bought. It will take us an hour to get to a ski lift from our new house! I’m so excited!
Eye masks///no specific brand, but I keep them in the fridge and put them on first thing. Divine.
Peppermint joe joes///my favorite seasonal item from Trader Joe’s! It pains me to have to share them with my children…
Audio books/// a good audio book in your ears can make even the tedious tasks fly by. I’m looking at a mountain of laundry as I type this.
Kits- specifically sewing and knitting kits///I love Needlesharp and Wool and the Gangand We Are Knitters all have awesome kits where everything you need for a project comes in one box. How practical!
The prospect of a nice bath tub///Our new house has a great tub in the master bathroom and I am pumped to start soaking.
Shopping second hand/// Been doing this more lately and the hunt for something cool is addicting. I love that it’s more sustainable and that it forces a bit of creativity in your wardrobe.
Coffee in bed/// Is there anything more decadent?!?! No, I say there is not. My husband getting up Saturday morning to make the good coffee and then bringing it to me in bed is one of my favorite things.
Vogue beauty routines/// I fell down the rabbit hole of watching the Vogue You Tube channel the other day and why is watching women put on make up/do their beauty routine so relaxing? It reminds of watching my mom get ready when I was a kid I think. Anyway, I highly recommend it.
Museums/// Museums and libraries are my favorite public places. If I have an hour to kill (rare!) these are the places I would choose to be. I love what’s in them of course, but also I love the cross section of people that gather there and just feeling like a part of the city, if that makes sense.
What are some of your favorite things right now?
