In fact, I found Mindy’s book to be a bit more relatable than some of Chelsea’s, and I think that’s so important for capturing your audience, especially of this age and demographic. Not only was Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me (And Other Concerns) totally hilarious, but I could relate to some of her stories in my own way, which drew me into the book even more.
I’m going to try to make sure I do a favorites post at the beginning of every month of the products, accessories, and whatever else I was obsessed with during the previous month– in no particular order!
Essie ‘Bobbing for Baubles’ and Deborah Lippman ‘I Love the Nightlife’
I bought this book at the Water Club hotel in Atlantic City, they had an amazing store called Vintage, it was basically a wine tasting store with tons of choices and different tasting sizes. They had a cute gift section and when I saw this book, Wine Bites, I knew I needed it. For Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s I made their Salmon and Caper Dip. I’ve also made their Crabmeat Dip and amazing little cheese puffs, fancy term, Gougeres. (All in the pics below) I’m truly obsessed with this book it has amazing little appetizers and gives suggestions for wine pairings with each one.
I love to read books on my phone, it’s super easy and convenient to be able to read wherever I want to, whenever I want to. Many people have told me how great this novel is, and I’ve been meaning to read it for a while now. So far I’m loving this book, the story is heart wrenching, but it’s written so well– I’m sure the movie doesn’t do it justice. If you’re interested check it out here on Amazon.
I loveeeee the scent of this holiday body butter. It’s not overpowering, and the smell of cranberry is great. It was a perfect choice for the holiday season, and as always, the Body Shop’s body butter is great for the winter weather.
My mom bought this perfume a while ago, I has used it a few times, but for some reason I decided I really loved it so I basically stole it from my mom. You can find it at any department store, or here on the Sephora website. According to Sephora it has notes of artemisia leaves, ambrette, white pepper, white tea, musk, and woody amber. I think it smells clean and fresh, and you can wear it day or night. It smells mature and classy, which sounds weird, but if you can a chance to try it out you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about!
