A few of my favorite things

I turned 27 last week. Which is weird because last I checked I was 18, and so I must have blinked or something, because really... where has the time gone?

I don't know if there is such a thing as an "exciting" birthday after 21. So I just revel in the whole "another year older, another year wiser" mantra. So I'm 27 years wise now.

Basically I know I lot.

Sort of like I know to get ever drop of the chocolate syrup out, you have to fill it a little ways with milk and then shake it up and squeeze into your cup. You're welcome. That's the sort of wisdom that comes with age. Though admittedly, I've had this figured out for a couple decades now. But it's the kind of knowledge that just can't go unshared.

Anyways, I thought I'd ALSO share with you a few of my favorite things, in honor of my birthday. (Full disclosure: anything that links to Amazon runs through my Amazon Associates account. So basically if you buy something I get like five cents. I just figured if I'm going to share with you all of my materialistic secret products, that I might as well get something out of it.)

SukiFace Exfoliate foaming cleanser. This facial cleanser is the bomb. It smells delicious, and cleans and scrubs like the best of them. And it's just my favorite.
There's also a 1 ounce to-go option, if you wanted to just test it before spending $30.

Hot Rollers. I have been a serious, serious fan of hot rollers since I was in college. They are so easy, and once you learn how to use them, they are quick, too! If you haven't invested in some, you need to. Unless you are a man. Then of course you probably don't need hot rollers. Maybe I'll get fancy sometime and even show you the best hot roller arrangement on your head.

Ring Holders and jewelry storage from Urban Outfitters. I have a pair of little bunnies to hold my rings, but I recently discovered this Unicorn Ring Holder and I just think it's pretty awesome. Especially for $14

Billy Joel: Love Songs I love, love, love Billy Joel and that's why this collection of love songs is currently on my Amazon Wishlist. I expect to move it to my cart soon.

These Trudeau Water Bottles Part of my New Year's Resolution was to drink more water. And I figured I needed a super sweet water bottle to help me achieve my goal. These are totally it.

Chai Latte K Cups I'm the proud new owner of Keurig and I'm so excited (thanks, Mom and Dad!) When I'm not drinking Iced Coffees, these Chai Lattes are pretty good!

The Ultimate Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy I'm sort of a nerd at heart. And the Big Bang Theory totally makes me okay with it.  I'm currently into book two of this series and loving it. Here's the shortest book review ever: A humorous science fiction novel, with plenty of imagination.

In addition to Science Fiction literature... I also am hugely obsessed with The Walking Dead comics (the first comics I have ever read in my whole life,) which of course stems from my obsession with the TV series. This is a Compendium of the first 8 volumes, which happens to be exactly how many I've read so far. So you have to catch up.

I think that concludes my very assorted list of favorite things for now. I think I'll do something like this every once in a while. What are you loving at the moment?

  1. Ordering that exfoliant! Also, would love to see how you use rollers. I have never tried them but would love a simple way to get some curl/wave to my hair :)

    1. You'll love it Kayla, and you'd love rollers, too... I'll do a post soon!
