A Few Of My Favorite Things {This Week}…

{A few of my favorite things this week that I either just discovered or already know I couldn’t do without}

1.     Sour Gummy Worms – I have a major sweet-tooth and need a small fix once a day, usually in the middle of the day.  In this heat, I try to avoid chocolate, so that it doesn’t end up melted in my bag, on the seat of the car, or my palm.  This week, I picked up a bag of sour gummy worms and I’ve been sneaking a few each afternoon.  They are the perfect way to conquer the craving.

2.     Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15 – Earlier this summer, I posted a list of my beach bag essentials (here).  This awesome lip treatment that is tinted and has SPF 15 has not only made it in that beach bag, but in my everyday bag as well.  And I think the shade I most recently picked, rose, is the ideal sheer, rosy and just-bitten, tint.

3.     Magnetic Wrap Bracelet – I love wearing a stack of bracelets, but sometimes a wrap bracelet or one where different colored and textured strands are attached to one another just makes life a whole lot easier.  And this is the best yet because it comes with a magnetic closure.  I picked this up while shopping at Dobbs Limited in Montclair, with my mother-in-law over the holiday weekend and have worn it almost every day since.

4.     Coconut Frozen Fruit Bars – The last time I had a coconut frozen fruit bar, I was probably in junior high and that was always my preference over any other fruit flavor.  But I recently got one and my daughter got strawberry and we traded back and forth, the icy goodness dripping through the open spaces in the wooden table at the pool.  I couldn’t have been happier to share an old favorite summer-time treat with my little girl.

  1. Was she as happy to share with you? Sharing is a special thing between a parent and child.

  2. I really liked browsing through this. I think it’s going to go really good with the handmade accessories I saw at etsy.com/shop/FlosCaeli I purchase all of my headbands, necklaces, etc there.
