Each Thursday will be all about lovely little treasures I have stumbled upon throughout the past week. Without further ado...here are the five things I am loving this week.
They are a nice welcome from skinny jeans and make me feel like I am almost wearing sweatpants because they are so comfy. You can easily dress them up or down, which makes them a versatile wardrobe staple. I especially like Old Navy’s Boyfriend Jeans, they are not overpriced and come in different washes.
Joanna’s Favorite Bag-
Each Tuesday Travis and I tune into Fixer Upper on HGTV. If you haven’t watched it before you should totally check it out, its about a super cute couple who brings life into old homes people brush aside. Every episode I notice Joanna using the most beautiful leather bag and it turns out she sells them online in her store. Even BETTER, they are handmade by at-risk women in Ethiopia so you are helping support a great cause by purchasing. I am especially loving the brown.
Julep Freedom Polymer Top Coat-
I received this in my Julep Maven box and it is the best top coat I have ever used. It goes on easily and smooth and dries quickly so you aren’t being held captive for hours waiting for your nail polish to dry. What I love MOST about this product is that it looks and acts just like a gel polish but you do not need a light or to soak your nails in acetone to remove it. It lasts a long time, is easy to remove and well worth the investment.
Jasper and Jeera Pomona Sandals-
I HATE wearing socks and this warmer weather has my really wanting to break out all of my sandal and warm weather shoes. These Jasper and Jeera Pomona Sandals on Anthropologie are screaming spring and also my name. I have a couple pair of sandals in this style and they are so comfy, they don’t even feel like you are wearing shoes! The zipper in the back makes them so much easier to take on/off than twisting your ankle and hand to try and do a buckle.
Last week at a lunch meeting I had the BEST bread I have eaten in a long time, from a local bakery and deli in town. It was dark brown and had undertones of coffee and molasses, I had to refrain myself from eating the entire loaf. If I was in the privacy of my own home I may have. After some research I figured out it was Pumpernickel bread and in the past week I have made two loaves at home, yikes! This recipe is simple and doesn’t call for some of the random spices that other recipes do. It combines three of the best things (coffee, cocoa and molasses) into bread form so how bad can it really be?
