Good morning and very happy FRIDAY to you!
We got quite the snow storm in southern Massachusetts yesterday. We even had “thundersnow” at times, which I didn’t realized was a thing until it happened, and it was actually kind of unsettling. I thought I was hearing snow plows coming through our neighborhood until I realized the sound was not stopping and just getting louder. Whoa. It was not at all what I was expecting and definitely a first for me! Anyway, we have quite a lot of snow to dig out from this morning, and I hope everyone in the area and surrounding areas is staying safe and warm. Ok, enough weather talk. Here’s the next edition of What I’m Loving Lately!
First things first: Zella Flash High Waist Leggings + Mindful High Waist Midi Leggings – Oh my gosh, I love both of these leggings so much. Super cute. And you can never have too many pairs of black leggings, right?!
Also, lovvvving these Steve Madden ‘Ecentrcq’ Slip-On Sneakers – I absolutely need them in my life.
EBATES – I’ve blogged about EBATES a number of times over the years because, well, it’s truly the best, but I just had to mention it again after I received my January Cash Back Statement. Hello, $134.96! I mean, I did do a lot of online shopping last month for the holidays, but, hey, that’s straight up cash back in my pocket. If you’re not using EBATES yet, GET ON IT!!
Lightened-Up Mac & Cheese – An oldie, but goodie recipe! I made this for dinner the other night, and I forgot how delicious it is!
365 Organic Texas True Barbecue Sauce – Oh, man, this stuff is so damn good, and I love that it doesn’t have a crapton of sugar in it. I love mixing it with roasted or steamed veggies to give them a little extra pizzazz!
I’ve used a few different lash “growers” over the years, but this one is THE BEST by far and totallllllllly works. The photo on the right is my lashes WITHOUT mascara after using it consistently for about 6-7 weeks now. And my lashed are still growing!!
Retainer Brite – Ok, this one is kind of random, but it’s something I’m loving lately! 🙂 I used to use denture cleaner tablets to clean my retainer, but they’d always seem kind of scuzzy no matter how long I soaked them. I discovered these cleaning tablets specifically for retainers, and they work so much better! I wish I found them sooner!
Pawsy Portraits – How adorable is this portrait of Murphy?! The nice people from Pawsy Portraits sent it to me, and it’s now displayed in my home office, so I can see his cute pug mug even while I’m working…. I mean, if he’s not already sitting on my lap. A portion of all proceeds are donated to animal rescue organizations, so your purchase will help other animals find their forever homes. Wouldn’t one of these pet portraits make an awesome gift?
And, finally, just a quick shout-out to ButcherBox since we’re totally loving it lately!
