April Favorites

Hi everyone,

As it’s the end of month, I thought it would be the perfect time to do my April favorites. I have a fun mix this month, so let’s get into it.

Starting with beauty, I have a couple of favorites from my April Sephora Play Box, which I will link below if you haven’t read. My first Play favorite is the Belif Moisturizing Eye Bomb. This is a holy grail product for me, I’ve been using it for a while and I always recommend it. It detoxifies, soothes the skin and helps with skins elasticity.


My next favorite is the Benefit Cosmetics They’re Real! Lengthening & Volumizing Mascara in Black. I’ve worn this a few times since I got it and I really like it. There’s no clumping or transferring and it makes my lashes look full and long. Basically it does what it says on the tin and if you’re looking for a new mascara or just want to change it up then I definitely recommend giving this a try.



My last Play favorite is the Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Dance Fever. I have a few of these Nars lip pencils and they’re some of my favorites. This one in particular is a really nice medium brown. These go on so smooth and have great staying power.




I wanted to say quickly that as Sephora Play has ended I have subscribed to BoxyCharm and starting next month I will be unboxing those. I’m super excited about it and I hope you guys enjoy reading it.

And my last beauty favorite is the Sinful Colors Quick Bliss Nail Polish in 2674, Flushed. I’m always buying nail polish and when I saw the Quick Bliss line online, I was interested. The Quick Bliss line is quick dry, says it dries in 1 minute and I can attest to the fact that it dried down super quickly. They also have cherry oil which helps to protect from breakage. Flushed is a really pretty and sparkly pinky purple that goes a little bit gold when it hits the light.



Moving on I have a book favorite and it’s Tom Clancy’s Enemy Contact, A Jack Ryan Jr. Novel by Mike Maden. I’ve always really liked the Jack Ryan series, including the Amazon show. I haven’t read all of the books but after reading this one I picked up a few more. I really like that the series was expanded to Jack Ryan Jr and I think the writing is fantastic. This is definitely a series of books I recommend.

And my last favorite is a music favorite, and it’s the song A Conversation With Alice by Joe Bonamassa. This is a new song from Joe and I’ve been really liking it. I think the story behind it is great and I love the fact that he took his experience and turned it into a song. This song has a lot of elements that I like in a blues song and Joe plays slide, which I always really like. I first heard this on Spotify, but I’ll link the YouTube video below. It’s definitely worth a listen.

That about wraps it up for this post, if we had any of the same favorites let me know and if not I’d love to know what your April favorites were.

Until next time, enjoy your favorites and I hope you all had a good April :).

July Favorites

Hi everyone,

As it’s the end of the month, I thought today would be the perfect day to talk about my July favorites. I have an interesting mix this month, so let’s get into it.

Starting with beauty, I have a couple of favorites from my July Sephora Play Box, I’ll of course link that post below if you haven’t read it. And my Play favorite is the Clinique Take The Day Off Makeup Remover for Lids, Lashes and Lips. You guys know how much I love this. I’ve been using it for ages and it not only takes off every stay proof, waterproof, long lasting bit of makeup, but it does so with a gentle formula so there’s no scrubbing or irritation.


Next up we have the Bite Beauty Matte Crème Lip Crayon in Glace. Again, this is something I’ve been using for a little while and it’s just so good. This particular shade is like a dusty mauve and it’s so pretty. These lip crayons are super pigmented and really long wearing. I have quite a few Bite Beauty products and honestly they’re all great. If you’ve never checked them out then I highly recommend doing so.



My last Play favorite is the Marc Jacobs Fragrances Daisy Love Eau So Sweet. This is a scent that I would describe as very summery. It’s floral, fruity and just a little bit sugary, which is perfect. This isn’t one of those perfumes that you have to worry about being completely faded by the end of the day, it wears well and lasts a long time. I definitely recommend smelling this if you haven’t and you get the chance.


My second to last beauty favorite is the Pantene Intense Rescue Shots. I received this first in my Walmart Beauty Box, link below, and in my Target Beauty Box later, link below. So I figured I would give it a try. I take pretty good care of my hair so I didn’t know if it would really do a lot, but I have to say that I’m impressed. You use this after you’ve shampooed and conditioned and you apply it from the middle of your hair to the ends. It’s purpose is to target any damage you may have and to help prevent split ends, what I’ve noticed is that the portion of my hair I applied it has been softer than normal and I quite like that.


And my last beauty favorite is Aloe Vera. Earlier this month I was doing something I’m going to talk about later in this post, outside in the heat of the day, for a long period of time, and I got the worst sunburn I’ve had in a really long time. It was so red and so painful and using aloe absolutely saved me. It ended up not peeling and actually turned into a nice little tan.

My next favorite is a book and it’s Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett. I talked about the show adaptation in my favorites last month and after watching and loving that I decided that I had to read the book. I absolutely loved it, it was so funny and now I fully understand why so many people have loved this book for so long. It’s just fantastic. I 1000% recommend reading it if you haven’t and watching the show because David Tennant and Michael Sheen are incredible and do an outstanding job of bringing the characters to life.


Moving on, my next favorite is my sunflowers and the planter box I built for them, aka the thing that caused my sunburn. Back in June a neighbor of mine told me she had some extra sunflower starts that she didn’t have a use for and I very happily took them off her hands. I knew that sunflowers like to root pretty deep and have space to grow so I decided to build my own planter box. It came out so good, I’m super happy with it and the sunflowers have been thriving since I put them in there. I have to give a shout out to my dad for helping me with this because my woodworking experience is limited.





And my last favorite is a music favorite. It’s the song Superstitious by Europe. I feel like Europe is a band that gets forgotten about/people don’t know has more songs than Final Countdown. But my discovering this song was totally random, it popped up in my recommended on YouTube and I’m glad I clicked because I really like it. I listen to a lot of music and this song has one of, in my opinion, the best guitar solos. It’s just so good. And I would definitely say to give this song a listen if you haven’t, it’s pretty great.

That about wraps it up for this post, if we had any of the same favorites this month let me know and if not I’d love to know what your July favorites were.

Until next time, enjoy your favorites and I hope you had a great July :).

Blogmas Day Three: My Christmas Tree and Holiday Stories

Hi everyone,

Welcome to Day Three of Blogmas! Today I’m going to be showing you guys my Christmas tree and talking about some of my favorite Christmas stories to read as a child. And I’m going to start with my tree.

I’m really happy with my tree this year, I’m not entirely sure what it is, I think it’s a Noble or some variation of Noble. I went to a tree farm I’d never been to before but is really popular and I was impressed. It’s a huge area and they have beautiful trees. Already having my tree and having it decorated makes it feel so much more Christmassy and makes me even more excited for Christmas.



Moving on, we have some Christmas stories. When I was a kid these were stories that I loved to read or when I was really little have read to me and they just embody the holiday season to me. And now my mom has kept the tradition going by reading these stories to my niece and nephew. There are two version of The Night Before Christmas because I would keep one on my little bookshelf to read whenever I wanted and my mom would keep the hardback version. And besides The Night Before Christmas by Clement C. Moore, we have The Polar Express by Chris Van Allsburg, Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer by Robert L. May and Rudolph Shines Again by Robert L. May, which is the sequel to Rudolph.








That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys read any of these books/if any of these books are part of your Christmas traditions or if you read something different during the holidays I’d love to know.

Until next time, enjoy your books and have fun decorating your trees :).

July favorites

Hi everyone,

As it is the last week of July I thought it would be a good time to talk about my favorites and what I’ve been loving this month. Starting with beauty, I have a few favorites from my July Glam Bag, and I’ll link that post down below if you haven’t read it. My first favorite is the bag itself, I don’t think they could’ve chosen a more adorable mascot than Gudetama and I love that the bag has a 360 design.



Next up we have the Caudalie Vinosource Moisturizing Sorbet. I have loved this since the minute I put it on and it’s become an important part of my nightly routine. It’s light, smells good and my face feels so good. I have since ordered a full size version of this. Definitely recommend it.


My next beauty favorite is the Ciate London Wonderwand Gel-Kohl Hybrid liner in Black. Like I mentioned before I really like Ciate London, I think they’re a great brand with great products. Since joining Ipsy my collection of eyeliner has grown and I love it. This one goes on smooth and it’s long lasting. It’s also double ended so one end is the pencil and the other end is a smudging and blending brush.


My last Glam Bag favorite is the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea deep dive cleansing gel. I’ve been using this to take off my makeup and cleanse my face and I love it. The whole Rainforest of the Sea collection is brilliant and if you want a good cleansing product I recommend this. Like the Caudalie moisturizer, I’ve ordered a full size of this.


And my last beauty favorite is the LOC Vibrant Matte Lipstick in Color Me Confident. LOC stands for Love Of Color and it’s a Birchbox brand. My mom is subscribed to Birchbox and she told me about this brand so I ordered one of these lipsticks just to try out and I really like it. This particular one is a cranberry red shade, which is usually the red I wear and I quite like it. I always love a matte lipstick, this one is highly pigmented and will last you all day without feeling like you’re wearing a matte lipstick because they can leave you with a heavy feeling. I definitely recommend it.



Next I have a book favorite and that’s Hidden Figures by Margot Lee Shetterly. I mentioned this book in my summer reading list post and if you haven’t read that I’ll link it below as well. But this book is about the African American women who were part of some of NASA’s biggest successes. I have loved every bit of this book so far, being the huge history nerd I am I’m so intrigued by this and I’m almost finished with it. It has been turned into a movie with the same name, and I wanted to wait until I’d read the book to see the movie but everyone has told me how great it was, so I can’t wait to watch it.

My next favorite is the Royal International Air Tattoo, or RIAT and it’s an international airshow, the world’s largest, held every year in England. This is an airshow that I’ve always wanted to go to and hopefully within the next few years I will, but I’ve been watching videos of it on YouTube and I think it’s really cool to see how many aircraft show up and how many countries take part.

My last couple of favorites are music related and the first is the song Grand Illusion from Barry Gibb’s 2016 album In The Now. The album is full of great songs, but Grand Illusion is definitely my favorite. I’ve loved Barry Gibb forever, I love the Bee Gees and I was happy to see that he had released another album. I’ve said this before but I honestly love to sing with Barry Gibb.

Next up we have the song Shame by Gary Barlow and Robbie Williams. I’ve thought this was a great song since it came out and it popped up recently when I put my phone on shuffle. This was the first song the two worked on after they resolved their issues and fixed their friendship and that’s what the song is about. The video is kind of ridiculous, but in a good way and I love it.

And my last favorite is Face To Face by Gary Barlow and Elton John. I think I’ve mentioned before how much I love Elton John and I love that he and Gary did this song. You can tell that this song is special and I think the meaning behind it is really sweet. Not a lot of people stuck by Gary when he went through his rough patch, but Elton did and this was his way of saying thank you. It’s a brilliant song and I 100% recommend looking it up on YouTube, just like the other songs I mentioned, if you haven’t heard them.

That about wraps it up for this post, if we have any of the same favorites let me know and if not let me know what you loved this month.

Until next time, enjoy your favorites and I hope you had a great July :).

Summer reading list 2017

Hi everyone,

This week I wanted to talk about something I haven’t talked about in a while and that’s books and reading. Ever since I could read I’ve been a huge bookworm. I don’t have as much time to read as I used to but when I do get time I go all in. Basically I put together a list of books that I wanted to have for this summer and hopefully I could get around to reading at least two and if not I can always read them later and with so many amazing books out and coming out right now it was hard to choose. But I did manage to pick my top four. I will leave links down below for each book if you find yourself wanting a new read.

The first book is Hidden Figures by Margot Lee Shetterly. This book was turned into a movie, which I heard was absolutely amazing but I haven’t watched yet. I might just be a weirdo, but if I can help it I like to read the book first before watching the movie. But if you’re not familiar with either it’s about the untold story of the African American women who took part in some of NASA’s biggest successes. This is the book I’m currently reading, I started it on Saturday and I’m loving it so far. This is something I never knew about and being the history nerd that I am, I’m so fascinated by it.

The next book is also space related and it’s Astronaut Wives Club by Lily Koppel. Astronaut Wives Club is about the wives of the Mercury Seven astronauts and their lives. I think I was so intrigued by it because I didn’t think about what it would have been like to be an astronaut’s wife, especially back then. There were so many unknowns and it was a risk to go to space, or attempt to go to space and I think these women were extraordinarily strong. This book was turned into a show on ABC, with the same name, in 2015 and I loved it. I understand why it only was one season, but I wish it would’ve lasted longer.

The third book is Can I Speak to Someone in Charge by Emily Clarkson. This book actually just came out, but I can’t wait to read it. It’s about Emily essentially writing a series of open letters on various different topics. I’ve been reading her blog Pretty Normal Me for a while, and I think it’s great. She has great wit and she isn’t afraid to talk about anything. Her dad is Grand Tour presenter Jeremy Clarkson, who I love and find hilarious, and I find the two of them to be similar so if you like him definitely check her out.

And finally, this isn’t new, but one thing I’ve been wanting to do for a while is reread Harry Potter, so I bought this box set of all the Harry Potter books. It’s been absolute ages since I’ve sat down and read them and I’m excited to do so.

That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys are reading or have read any of these books let me know and let me know what’s on your reading list this summer.

Until next time, enjoy your books and happy reading :).

Father’s Day gift guide 2017

Hi everyone,

This week because Father’s Day is coming up I thought I would do a gift guide. I have always found it really easy to buy presents for my dad. But I know it’s not that way for a lot of people. And whether it’s that way for you or you’re just stuck for an idea this Father’s Day, I hope this post is helpful for you. I have a number of categories, and I will have a link down below to the things that I mention.

So the first thing is a Father’s Day classic and that’s anything in the area of grilling. I don’t think there’s a dad that doesn’t love to grill during a sunny summer weekend, or even during a rainy weekend. A set of grilling implements, an apron and anything like that is always a solid and probably safe bet. My dad is more into smoking than grilling right now, and most times when we have family get togethers he’s smoking some sort of meat and it’s delicious. If you’re going to go that route Masterbuillt is the best brand. Their products are top quality.

Next we have the personal care. I’ve always found that pretty much most men need and use a razor, so that’s always a good present. Along that same vein, cologne, lotions and products like that are good.

Pretty much one thing that never misses, doesn’t matter the event is gift cards. Everyone loves them and it takes the stress away of having to buy the perfect present.

One thing that pretty much everyone uses is some sort of streaming service. Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, etc. Subscriptions to services like that are like gift cards. They have something for everyone.

Next up is a dad classic, tools. There is always a need for tools, in every household. Screw drivers, saws, drills. All always needed.

One of my favorite things to do with my dad is watch sports and talk (occasionally argue) about it. I, like my dad, am a huge Mariners and Seahawks fan so anytime either of us see anything Seahawks or Mariners related that the other would like we buy it. So if your dad is a sports fan any kind of jersey or knick knack type thing will be a hit. Especially if you can find anything signed by his favorite player or players.

I have two things left on my list and the second to last is anything related to technology. I know that technology isn’t everyone’s forte, but for the technology lover, Bluetooth speakers, drones, you can’t go wrong. I personally really want a drone, but haven’t bought one yet. Maybe I’ll buy one for my dad and “borrow it”.

And lastly, anything personalized is always a hit on Father’s Day. Cups, plaques, anything you can think of you can personalize. I’ve found that a personalized gift usually draws a couple of tears. And is always appreciated.

That about wraps it up for this post. Like I mentioned at the beginning of this, hopefully this post is helpful to you guys and you find something that your dad will love.

Until next time, I hope you find something and have a Happy Father’s Day :).

March favorites

Hi everyone,

As it is the end of March, I thought today would be the perfect time to do my March favorites.  I think I have a good mix this month, so lets get into it. Starting off with beauty, I have a couple of things from my March Glam Bag. If you haven’t read that post I’ll leave a link to it below. So, the first thing is actually the bag itself. I like this one the most out of the ones I’ve gotten so far. The design is super cute and the space is incredible. Because of the space, I started using it as a makeup bag in my new handbag.


My next favorite from the Glam Bag is the Tarte Tarteist Lip Paint in Rosé.  I already have two of these in different shades, Fly and OG, and I love them. I want one of every shade they make.


And my last Glam Bag favorite is the Marc Anthony True Professional aloe vera and jasmine deep repairing conditioning treatment. This really does do what it says it will. After using it my hair felt so soft and it was less frizzy. Plus it smells incredible. So I will definitely be ordering another one of these.


Sticking with beauty, my next favorite is an eyeshadow palette. It’s the Everyday Smoky palette from e.l.f. There is a mix of shimmery and matte shade, every color is so pretty and the color payoff is amazing. A lot of the palettes I have are mostly warm tones, so it’s nice to have another one that is cool tones. I highly recommend this and any of the e.l.f. eyeshadow palettes.


And the last beauty favorite is skincare related. I don’t have a picture, but it’s the e.l.f. Illuminating Eye Cream with Purified Water, Cucumber and Green Tea. I got a sample of this when I received my eyeshadow palette and fell in love. I do occasionally have puffiness and  bags under my eyes and this put the moisture back into my skin and made them disappear like a good eye cream should. So I’ve placed an order for a full sized version.

Moving on to fashion, recently I’ve been looking for a new handbag. Something not too spendy, but not cheap and will fall apart if it touches the ground and I definitely found that. This bag is from H&M and I’m so in love with it. It has two handles at the top plus a shoulder strap, which is detachable, the main compartment in the middle, plus one large compartment on each side that has a zipper. Another smaller zip pocket on the inside and two more small pockets. Four gold studs on the bottom and a black lining along the outer edge. I personally love all of the gold hardware and it doesn’t clash with the color which I think officially is Light Taupe. But I know you can also get this bag in black and white.


From fashion we go to books where we have How to Drag Race by Kevin McKenna. This book is honestly a fantastic resource for anyone who wants to break in to drag racing or needs help with the set up and tuning of their car. There is a ton of great information in there and I seriously recommend buying a copy, I bought mine on Amazon.


My second to last favorite is a song, and it’s Hangin’ Around by Edgar Winter. I came across this song by chance on Pandora and I thought it was great. I know a few Edgar Winter songs, but had never heard this one and I’m glad that I did. If you’re not familiar with it definitely look it up on YouTube. It’s a fun song.

And my last favorite for this month is a TV show. Dancing with the Stars to be exact. This season is season 24 and I’ve been watching since the beginning. There is a lot of talent this season and a little bit of crazy. If you follow me on Twitter, then you know on Monday nights there’s some DWTS tweets happening. But this season my favorite couples are Erika Jayne and Gleb Savchenko and David Ross and Lindsay Arnold. If any of you guys are watching this season let me know who you’re rooting for and what you think of the season so far.

That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys have any of the same favorites as me let me know and if not let me know what your favorites were for this month.

Until next time, enjoy your favorites and I hope you’re having a good March :).

September favorites

Hi everyone,

So this week, as we’re a week into October I figured it was time to post my September favorites. This one is a bit of a mash up, so enjoy :), So, my first favorite is a beauty favorite and it’s the Maybelline Great Lash, Lots of Lashes mascara. I mentioned that I was using this in my Three easy makeup looks and three OOTD’s post because I ran out of my Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara, but I’ve really grown to like it. It is a cheaper drug store makeup product that’s been around forever, but they’ve changed a few things. This particular brush is shaped like a Christmas tree and it feels more long lasting. I would highly recommend this mascara because the way it makes my lashes look is insane.


My next favorite is a book, and it’s The Light Between Oceans by M. L. Stedman. I cannot say enough good things about this book. The story is absolutely incredible, it’s so well written, I could picture every scene and I honestly cried like a baby at the end. After I finished it I immediately wanted to start reading it again. It’s now been made into a movie, which I haven’t actually seen yet, but I can’t wait to see. It was one of those books that once I got into it I couldn’t put it down. Highly, highly recommend it because you will love it.


So, moving on, my next two favorites are food related. Well actually, ice cream. The first is a very beginning of September, when it was still summer fav and it’s Ben & Jerry’s Cookies & Cream Cheesecake Core. I can’t even tell you how good this ice cream is. It’s chocolate and cheesecake ice creams with chocolate cookie pieces and the best cheesecake core. It was like eating the best cheesecake mixture you could imagine.


The next ice cream is one I found at the end of September and it’s Ben & Jerry’s Pumpkin Cheesecake. This is essentially fall all wrapped up and put in a box. It’s pumpkin cheesecake ice cream with a graham cracker swirl. The graham cracker swirl adds a nice textural element and helps in making sure it’s not too overpowering. Which this isn’t because while you can taste all of the pumpkin flavors it’s not like a lot of other pumpkin flavored things this time of year that get a little out of control. And this is a limited seasonal ice cream, so get it while you can.


Next up we have a couple of music favorites. The first is Pandora radio. I’ve had Pandora for a long time, but lately I’ve been using it more and liking it more. It’s been playing great music on all of my stations, so I’ve been appreciating it a lot lately.


My next music favorite is something that just came. And it’s Joe Bonamassa Live at the Greek Theatre. Ever since Joe has been around and making music my dad has been telling me about him. There are a lot of his songs that I do like, but for some reason, this concert and album I really like a lot. Maybe it’s because it is slightly different than things he’s done in the past, but I’m really enjoying it. And I have ordered the Blu-ray version of the concert from his website. And so far, my favorite song is “Ole Time Religion”. It’s really fun and not typically what I would go for, but the arrangement and his guitar playing takes it to another level. Plus as someone who loves to sing and sings all the time, the vocal possibilities with this song are great.


My second to last favorite is a TV show and it’s Archer. The last week and a half or so of September I was sick, so I watched a lot of Netflix. And after listening to my brother talk about Archer forever, I decided to watch it and I’m so glad I did because it’s so great. It’s my sense of humor, the jokes are so funny, the characters are great, and it makes me laugh a lot. If you haven’t watched it I would recommend doing so. Netflix has season 1-6 and I think you can probably find the latest season, season 7 on demand somewhere.


And my last favorite is the Seattle Mariners. I can’t even tell you how proud I am of this team. They had a really good season and just barely missed out on the playoffs. And I mean just barely. I think that this season more than those in recent years, they played like a whole team and when they needed to score runs and hit home runs they did. They ended up finishing second in the American League West at 86-76. Considering there was a new General Manager, Jerry Dipoto, and Manager, Scott Servais, it was a good year and it gives me a lot of hope and excitement for next season. Go Mariners.


That about wraps it up for this favorites, with the seasons changing and it being holiday time, I’ll probably be doing a monthly favorites until the end of the year. But, if you and I had any of the same favorites in September let me know :).

Until next time, enjoy your favorites and have a great October :).

I want your input

Hi everyone,

This isn’t the typical blog post, but rather something I want your opinion on. I’ve been wanting to do a Q&A for a while now, and I want to know how you guys want me to do it. What I’m thinking is I can do the traditional blog post where you send me your questions and I write out my answers, or I could do a livestream on YouTube. Let me know what you guys think and remember to send in questions. The questions can be about anything you want, so don’t think it has to be solely about makeup and beauty. Anyway, let me know what you guys think :).

April favorites

Hi everyone,

Since we are in the first week of May, I thought that this would be a good time to talk about my April favorites. I have quite the random mix, so enjoy :). The first thing I want to talk about is beauty. My first product is from the e.l.f. blush palette in Light. Lately I’ve been going for a more bronzed look and the bronzer in this palette is one of my favorites. It’s not too orange or too dark for my face and it gives me the look that I want. And I actually quite like the blush that is right below it. It has little gold flecks in it, gives a nice glow and it’s not too pink. It’s got a nice reddish tone to it.


My next beauty favorite is from Hard Candy and it’s three of their All Glossed Up lip stains. I know that I’ve talked about these previously, but this last month I really liked them a lot. The dark pink and nudey brown I’ve used more so they’ve taken on kind of a weird shape. But I just started to use the peachy one. I’m not gonna lie, when I first swatched it I was hesitant because it looked quite orange, But I was pleasantly surprised when I put it on to find out that that wasn’t the case. It has a nice peach tone and goes with pretty much any look as do the other two. And I think my next purchase from Hard Candy will be the matte lip stains.


My second to last beauty favorite is a simple one. And it is the vanilla Softlips lip balm. I’ve been using Softlips for years and they are my favorite lip balm. I’ve tried different ones, but the vanilla is my favorite. What I’ve been using it for more recently is after I take off all of my makeup and go through my nightly routine, right before I go to bed I’ll put it on. And I’ve actually been seeing a difference. I use a lot of different lip products and this really has kept and probably put some moisture back in my lips. And this particular one is SPF 20 which is an added bonus.


My last beauty favorite is actually hair care and it’s my shampoo and conditioner. They are from Paul Mitchell and it’s the Awapuhi Shampoo and The Detangler conditioner and they are some of the original products. I’ve tried a lot of different shampoos and conditioners and I’ve found that for me these work the best. I dye my hair blonde and that can be slightly damaging for the hair, but these keep it silky and smooth. I also have quite thick hair so the detangling conditioner is a dream for me. Plus they smell amazing.


Moving on to food, I have one favorite and it’s the Kashi Honey Almond Flax chewy granola bar. I know that I’ve mentioned this bar before, but it really is my favorite and when I’m feeling snacky this is what I’ve been going for and I would recommend it.


My next couple things are accessories. The first is a watch. I bought this watch at Kohl’s during an after Christmas sale and was wearing it a little bit. But more recently I’ve been wearing it a lot. It’s rose gold which I love and it has a grey leather band. I also really like the size of the face. It’s not too big, but it’s also not dainty like a lot of women’s watches can be. It goes with practically everything and I’m just so in love with it.


The next thing is kind of an accessory, but it’s more practical. And that is this knife. I carry a knife probably everyday and have for years. Why I carried this one a lot in April is because of the size. It’s nice and small which was perfect because we had the hottest April in 30 years so I was wearing shorts most days and my shorts have really small pockets. I’m not sure the name of this knife but it’s from Precision Point.


My next favorite is the book that I’m currently reading. And that is Beyond Band of Brothers; The War Memoirs of Major Dick Winters by Major Dick Winters, Commander, Easy Company, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment and Colonel Cole C. Kingseed. I’m two thirds of the way through with this book and I’m absolutely loving it. If any of you watched the HBO series Band of Brothers then you know about the Easy Company and Major Winters. And how amazing he was. From parachuting into France on D-Day to taking over command of Easy Company Major Winters was a great leader. I said the other day that I wished I could go back in time and meet him and I truly mean it.


My next couple of favorites are two racing series. IMSA and Indy Car. I grew up watching all kinds of racing, you guys know that drag racing is my favorite, but I found that I’ve been enjoying these two more than in years past. Of course I have my favorite teams and guys that I root for but it’s always competitive and exciting to watch. Especially this season with the rivalry between the Corvette’s and the Porsche’s in the GTLM class in IMSA being so intense.





My last favorite is the Seattle Mariners. I’m from Washington so the Mariners are my team and I could not be more proud and happy with how this season is going so far. As I’m writing this they have won their last six series, including sweeping the Oakland Athletics yesterday. They are in first place in the AL West and won today in their opening game in a four game series with the Houston Astros. For the first time in a long time I feel like they are playing as a team. Pitching is good offense is good and defense is good. We’re getting production from the whole lineup and it’s really exciting.

I think that’s about it for this favorites. I had more than I originally thought and I probably won’t do another one for a few months. If you guys had any of the same favorites let me know and if not, I would love to know what you guys have been loving :).

Until next time, have a great May and enjoy your favorites :).
