5 Thing That I Love
Happy Thursday! We've made it over the hump of the week (Oh Wednesday!)
Today I'm sharing with you five things that I love because they are just simple things that add to my day. Now I specifically said things because I'm talking about items, unnecessary (but necessary), happy, lovely things...here I go!
Let me tell you that I feel much more like a lady when I've got my makeup done. My hair, not as important. As you've probably noticed from most pictures, I make a solid effort to get a brush through it after showering each morning and that's about it. There are those special days where I blow dry and straighten my hair, but we're talking like a few times a month. But makeup (just a little) is like an added boost, making me feel good about me. I just feel better with powder, blush, and mascara. I say a little thank you to whoever created the stuff.
2. High heeled shoes
I'm 5'4". Now I know that's not really short, but it's not really tall either. All of my work clothes look better with a pair of heels. I've never really been a flats kinda girl - unless they are flip flops for the summer. All of my work shoes make me a solid 2-4 inches taller and I love it.
You know I'm a Starbucks junkie. BUT I have been doing so so so much better! I make (almost) all my lattes at home now and if I go to Starbucks it's because those Refresher drinks have got me hooked! Oh the Cool Lime Refresher is out of this world good. I need a fountain of that stuff.
4. My iPhone
I use it for practically everything. All my pictures are iPhone taken. I use a wonderful app called Pic Collage to make all the framed photos I post. I know they aren't anything fancy, but they are good enough for me and the iPhone makes it so easy! I love Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram on my phone as well, and then there's my Nook app, Words with Friends, Nike=+ Running app to track my runs...the list goes on. And then of course the communication aspect is huge. I like to leave my phone behind here and there (to check out from the technology world), but when I want to be checked in, it's perfect. I'd take a picture of my phone (and I almost tried), but turns out it's tough to take a picture of your iPhone with you iPhone.
5. My SPIbelt (running belt)
This has really been life changing for my runs this Spring. I received it as a gift last Christmas so this is the first season I'm using it. It carries my iPhone and key while I run. It's easy to unzip when I need to pause my run on the Nike+ app. It's light weight, adjustable, and I've got nothing bad to say about it. I know mine was ordered off Amazon.
These are just 5 little things that add to my day. We all have the things we love (and are lucky to have).
What are some things you love?
