What I’m Loving Right Now – February 2018

I can’t believe another month has come and gone. I feel like I’ve blinked and February is upon us! Of course, that means talking about the things I’m loving right now!

February Brings…

For us, February brings several different things!  Basketball is wrapping up this month and we get a few more nights at home until track season starts!  T has to do some traveling for work!  This is unusual, so an adjustment for us!  Valentine’s Day, of course, will be celebrated!  It also brings me the time to do some more experimenting in the kitchen and thinking about spring travels (fingers crossed)!  Finally, it brings us to a new list of my favorite things and since February means getting more time in my kitchen, I decided that this month will be focused on  my favorite kitchen tools and gadgets!

What I’m Loving Right Now – January 2018

Can you believe it’s January 2018 already?!  And here we are for another edition of “What I’m Loving Right Now”.  I enjoy putting together these lists of things I’m loving right now, so I hope you enjoy reading them and I hope you can find something that might help you, strike your fancy, or fill a void in your life!

This month, I’m calling it my Direct Sales version!  I’ve shared a few things from a few direct sales friends of mine that I love, but here are a few more!  I truly love supporting as many direc sales consultants as possibl, as long as they provid me with outstanding customer service!  Those that do, earn my business for life!  I understand how how they work, and I understand what they are providing for their family, so I want to support them!

So, here’s what I’m loving this month from my Direct Sales friends!

Rodan & Fields Body Lotion

I’m always on the hunt for a good quality body lotion  and while I enjoy the “fun” scents from those body stores, my skin can’t handle it!  I have incredibly sensitive skin with eczema, so I need something gentle and highly effective!  I recently started using the Rodan & Feilds Body Lotion and I can’t praise it highly enough!  It leaves my skin highly moisturizer, has no scent, and isn’t greasy AT ALL!  My skin is instantly smooth and soft after applying!

Easton Scarf from Trades of Hope

Back in  May, I talked about one of my favorite necklaces, the Sea Glass from Trades of Hope!  Now, I’m raving about my Easton Scarf!  I earned it recently by hosting a party with my favorite TOH consultant and I’m so glad that I did!  It goes with just about everything and is my favorite colors!  Plus, the fact that it’s supporting the women of India makes my heart even happier.

What I’m Loving Right Now, November 2017

I know, I know…it’s been 5 months since you’ve seen one of these!  Life happens!  But, I’m back with a new edition of what I’m loving and these really are some of my absolute favorite things, so I hope you see something you might like too!

Leafy Style

When you love something you buy one in every color, right?!  Well, I did just that with my current favorite necklace!  Back in my first edition, in April,  I talked about my favorite earrings, which are by Chloe & Isabel!  Ironically, my favorite necklace is made by the same company!  I had the silver version of this leaf necklace first and when my consultant, Mary, gave me the opportunity to buy the gold from her cash and carry stash, I jumped on it!  These are unique pendants that add a little class to every outfit!  My favorite thing about them is that the chain is connected directly to the pendant.  It doesn’t slide around!  It all stays put! I recommend getting one or both!  😉

What I’m Loving Right Now, June 2017

June is here, school is done (or almost) and that mean summer is official upon us!  It’s a new month, which also means it’s time for a new round of “What I’m Loving Right Now!”  It’s interesting what I love each month (even for myself to discover).  Some of it is material things and some of it is the intangible, but I think that is what gives our life balance!

Bed Sheets

Yup, you know you’re getting old when one of the things you’re loving right now is bed sheets, but I’m ok with it!  T and I have a love/hate relationship with bed sheets!  He’s pickier than I am, but I digress.  Back at Christmas, we asked for gift cards to Kohls to purchase new sheets (how grown-up of us, right?!)  and we finally used the card when we discovered that our favorite sheets at a hole in them!  What sheets did I pick up and am now loving?!  It’s these, the SONOMA Goods for Life, Everyday Sheet Set from Kohls!  I hate spending a lot of money on sheets and when you have a king size bed, they are spendy enough as it is.  I find these to be a perfect combination of quality and comfort!  They are great for heading into the warmer months as they keep that “cool” feeling, but also aren’t cold to the touch like the rest of our sheets!  I also like them because they aren’t too slinky feeling like some of the super soft sets.  These have some substance to their fabric and I like that!  If you’re shopping for new sheets, I highly recommend them!

What I’m Loving Right Now, May 2017

It’s May already?! How did that happen?? We are on the downhill slide of track season (unless R makes it to the state track meet)! We actually only have 4 meets left between the two boys!  But, since it’s a new month, that means a new round of What I’m Loving Right Now and a giveaway (that I’m super excited about) at the end!

It’s All About the Tunic

Can I be perfectly honest with you?  I could live in nothing but leggings and tunics!  It’s true and I’m not ashamed to admit it!  If you find the right combo, it can be like wearing pajamas to work, so really…what’s not to love?!  Right now I’m loving this Apt. 9 Tunic Tee from Kohls!  While they call is a tee, the texture is similar to a microsuede so it makes it dressy enough to wear to work!  Seriously comfy and stylish at the same time!  It comes in a variety of colors and prints, but of course, I snagged it in gray!  That is one of my two color groups that I wear!  (If you don’t believe me, check out last month’s edition!) Ha!

What I’m Loving Right Now, April 2017

It’s a new month, April 2017, and that means a new series to my blog! Yay! Ok, maybe I’m the only one that is this excited about it right now, but I hope you eventually share my excitement!  I’m not a fashion or trend blogger and I’m not what one would consider high-class, but I’m real and I really love certain things, so I’ve decided to share them with you once a month!

Favorite Clothes

Gray Basic from Orange PossumThis is the first thing I’m loving right now!  I just snagged this basic tunic from my favorite boutique this past weekend, but I’m already swooning over it.  It’s basic, can be dressed up or dressed down and is uber comfy!  This past weekend, I paired it with some leggings and casual tennis shoes and it was perfect for grabbing supper out with my family!
