A few of my favorite things

Today’s post is about a few things I have been enjoying lately, which I thought I’d share with you!

Apple MacBook Pro with Touch Bar

My husband was going to get this for me for my birthday in June, but when he saw how laggy and slow my old laptop was, (I still love you, Toshiba laptop!), he decided to gift it to me about 3 months early, just in time for his birthday. 😁

I love how smoothly this runs, and OMG, the Touch Bar is so fun!!! It takes a while to switch to, from Windows, but once I got the hang of it, I found it a little easier to operate, in comparison.

However, I don’t like the new “thunderbolt” ports which make it necessary to purchase a slew of additional accessories if one is to be able to connect the laptop to items other than just the charger provided.

Still, I ❤️ all things Apple, and I ❤️❤️❤️ this too!


Arrested Development

Lucille Bluth: You want your belt to buckle, not your chair.

I know this show has been out for ages now, but I just started watching it properly (by properly I mean not catching bits and pieces on TV), and OMG, I live for Lucille Bluth.

Lucille Bluth: I’ll be in the hospital bar.

Michael: Uh, you know there isn’t a hospital bar, Mother.

Lucille: Well, this is why people hate hospitals. [Cackles at her own wit]

Sneaker Wedges

I am obsessed with makeup and shoes, and my recent shoe obsession is with sneaker wedges/wedge sneakers/whatever you call them. The two pairs above are from Aldo and Converse, respectively, and I love how comfortable yet cute they look. I am a size 5 and initially I wanted the Aldo ones in black, but my size was sold out and I’m glad I got the Converse pair because I love how they look with jeans.


Donna Karan Cashmere Mist and DKNY Be Delicious

Donna Karan Cashmere Mist has long been one of my favorite scents. It has a lovely, sexy, sophisticated touch to it that is warm and … comforting (for lack of a better word) at the same time. I decided to try DKNY Be Delicious as well, which is (from what I have read) kind of supposed to be “New York City in a bottle”. Honestly, it is a really fresh and upbeat scent that is simultaneously attractive. Cashmere Mist is more of an autumn/winter scent, and Be Delicious is more of a spring/summer one, for those who prefer season-specific fragrances. Personally, I could wear  these two all year round.

Sleek Makeup Matte Me Ultra Smooth Matte Lip Cream in Birthday Suit

I wrote a blog post about this long along, and I’ve fallen in love with it all over again. It is that perfect pinky nude that goes just as well with minimal makeup as it does with an intense smoky look. When I get ready for the day, this is always my last step and it really pulls my look together. Plus it feels soft and comfortable on the lips, and is not drying at all. It can be layered without looking flaky as well. Win!
