Just One More Thing – Volume 4

Happy Hump Day! I apologize for my absence the past week or so. My life is going through some massive changes (which I promise to share on here soon!) so I haven’t been able to post. Fear not, I’ll be back with gusto, soon! In the mean time, here are a few things I want to make sure I mention!

Just One More Thing – Volume 2

The HQ App

I am absolutely hooked on this app, and I feel like I’m the last person on earth to know about it. Every day at 3 pm and 9 pm you will get a push notification that the game is about to begin. If you log in, you begin a 15 question trivia game. It is single elimination, and the longer you last in the game the harder the questions become. The prize? $2,500. It. Is. So. Addictive.

Garnier Naturals Soothing Face Mist – Rose Water

I saw this on Instagram a few days ago and naturally I had to go find it! Face mist? I don’t have a fact mist! Do I need a face mist? Turns out, I do! This mist is simply a moisturizing spray. I use it on days when I have to go straight from the gym to work, or feel like my face needs a little bit of a pick me up. It smells just delightful, and gives your skin a dewy sensation. A perfect primer! You can buy it at Target, Ulta, and Walmart!

Talbot’s Sperry Tennis Shoes

I have long been a fan of boat shoes, and when Sperry started making darling feminine tennies a few years ago, they rapidly became my favorite run around shoes. I am absolutely dying over these blush ones. Let’s see how long I hold out before have to buy them.

Disposable Cups

I have long felt that presentation is half the taste. Did Martha Stewart say that? Or was it my mom? Anyway, with presentation being half the taste, I needed to up the presentation of my green smoothie. There are few things in this world grosser than trying to clean a reusable cup that has dried on spinach after it has sat in your car for your entire work day. Enter: these plastic cups. Not the most environmentally friendly, but they make my smoothie look so appetizing and like it came from an expensive smoothie shop instead of my kitchen and so I just love them! You can’t beat the price either!

Daffodils at Trader Joes

Trader Joes has daffodils. Repeat: Trader Joes has daffodils. Daffodils are always my sign that spring will indeed come. Since you buy them before they bloom, they are a lovely metaphor for me that all flowers will bloom again if we are just patient. My mom used to put them in blue Ball jars all over the house, and now every time I see them I am reminded that sunshine is just around the corner! Winter shall end!

 

 

Wedding Registry Must Haves

I have had quite a few friends get engaged recently. It is just wonderful, and with it comes the excitement of all of the various wedding activities. One of these, of course, is registering for gifts! James and I were overwhelmed with the generosity of our friends and family during our engagement season, and I am so grateful for all of the gifts we received. Since many of my friends are registering and have asked what were the most practical and useful things we registered for, I thought it might be fun to do a whole post on it!

Year-Round Festivities

I remember, vaguely, a time in which my wonderful old college friends and I were relaxing on a Sunday, sitting around the couch and talking about our friendship. We started going around in a circle, trying to find one word to describe each of us. While this activity was totally Seventh Heaven of us, it was actually very fun, and one of my dearest memories (despite the fact that I can’t remember when this was or why we started!) One of the words that came up to describe me was “festive.” I laughed, but boy, did they hit the nail on the head. I am incredibly festive. If I am completely honest with myself, my favorite holiday is whatever one is currently being represented by the dollar section of Target.

Historical fiction is easily my favorite genre. Below are three novels that will transport you to days past, to characters so extraordinary, you will wish they were real! Continue reading “Three Historical Fiction Novels”
