Now that we’re into the new year, I thought I’d take a moment to share some of my favorite things that are making my January days a little brighter…
My french press
Here I am, admitting it publicly I, Heather Lynn Massey, have become a coffee drinker. And this pretty little thing is one of my new best friends. It allows me to make just one mug of coffee to take with me to work, it’s green (ooooh, trendy) and it’s easy to clean up when I’m done. Economical and enjoyable!
My new kitchen timer
Small things bring me great joy. This was my little birthday gift to myself, from my beloved Anthropologie. I’ve been eyeballing this thing for awhile. The blue happens to match my walls almost perfectly and goes with my retro-ish kitchen. And it’s magnetic (cool, huh?!) Unfortunately, it has a ring so loud it sends both cats flying across the house every time it goes off…but hey, style takes sacrifices, right?
What girl hasn’t dreamed of having a personal shopper? Now take it to the next level…what if that shopper delivered to your house?! Enter Stitch Fix! I just got my approval a couple of weeks ago (you are on a waitlist when you sign up) and I’ve requested my first shipment for February. With a short questionnaire about your personal style, they put together a shipment of clothing and accessories. You pay for what you want to keep and send back what you don’t. I don’t imagine it’s something I’ll splurge on regularly, but I’m excited to give it a try. There will definitely be a post to follow my shipment next month!
Paper Thin Leaf Antenna by Mohu
Game changer, right here my friends. Network tv, no cable and no ugly antenna arms all over my living room! It literally looks like a file folder. It’s thin enough to hang on the back of my television and gets great reception. Giant THANK YOU to my lovely friend Tess who introduced me to this. I ordered mine on Amazon at a very reasonable price.
I know this isn’t really a new thing, but golly gee it makes my life happy. Lately I’ve been reliving my high school days with Alias, catching up on Downton Abbey (because I’m apparently the only person on the planet who isn’t up to speed!) and watching endless documentaries. I love documentaries. I’m a nerd, and proud of it.
You know you watched his Pep Talk, it went viral earlier this week. I honestly can’t get enough of this little guy. He’s hilarious. And believes in dancing, which, we all know I support. And he has challenged us to make this year awesome for somebody else. He even includes a pretty fabulous list of ways to do so (I for one will be taking advantage of the “mail somebody a corn dog” option.) Watch away…I dare you not to laugh. DARE. YOU.
What are you lovin’ right now? Anything new, fun or life-changing?
