February Favorites


1.)  Last month, “Parenthood” made it on my favorites’ list. This month, I am putting the other series on here that we’re currently watching: “Breaking Bad“. I must admit, it’s a little intense for me… I am constantly on the ‘edge of the couch’, but I am really enjoying the show. Have you watched it? Possibly finished it?

2.) Someone on Twitter recommended Trader Joe’s Coffee á Cocoa and naturally, I had to try it. I personally love the ‘mocha’ flavor and am really in love with this coffee. Unfortunately, J is not a big fan, so I have to save this for special occasions for me.

3.) I have a little bit of an obsession with Washi Tape lately, but please honestly tell me, who doesn’t? Washi tape is cute and versatile and I’ve been using it a lot with my Life planner. It’s just a fantastic addition to pretty much EVERYTHING.

4.) In an effort to move over to a little bit more natural (and environmentally friendly) skincare, I recently bought the Avalon Vitamin C Cleanser and the smell (think: fresh oranges!) alone is worth the purchase. A little bit goes a long way, it leaves my skin really soft and I also use it with my Clarisonic Mia2.

5.) J and I have been Thai food fans for a long time, but recently I especially enjoy the  Tom-Kha soup, a spicy hot soup made with coconut milk, galangal, lemon grass, kaffir lime leaves, and chicken, and often contains straw, shiitake, or other mushrooms, as well as coriander leaves. It’s delicious. The only downside is that I have to pick out the coriander leaves, lemon grass and galangal pieces, because I just cannot eat them.

6.) I am not big into lip color in general, but I’ve recently been enjoying the Rimmel Stay Glossy lip gloss. It’s affordable, comes in a range of pretty colors and doesn’t dry out my lips at all. I actually keep it in my purse and re-apply occasionally during the day and that is something that has never happened before.

  1. My birthday is Dec. 9th. What is yours? You have a lot of ways to remember birthdays! :D I personally don’t like the phone remember, don’t know why!

    I would love to try the Trader Joes Coffee. It sounds delicious!! Also the Tom-Kha soups sounds really yummy. My boyfriend loves Thai currys! :)

  2. I’ve said it on FB a few times, but will say it again: Breaking Bad is hands down the best series ever made. We watched it last fall. The whole show within 3 weeks. We got so into it, it was insane. I can’t imagine watching the show over the course of several years, having to wait months in between seasons. We could hardly wait until the next day to watch another episode and find out what happens next. Binge-watching was the way to go.

    What episode/season are you up to?

    Have a great weekend!

  3. LOVE Tom Ka Gai soup! At least here they throw on the Gai. I’ve never had it anywhere else before and am in total love with the broth….not so much the other stuff mixed in. C usually orders it and lets me have a cup of broth….mmmm….now I want some! I’d also like to warn about Avalon Organics. I don’t have any experience with the facial cleanser but their lavender shampoo and condition is HORRIBLE! It will ruin your hair. Trust me and avoid it! Horrible!

  4. I wanted to love Breaking Bad as it is a favorite show of Phil’s, but it was just too dark for me! I struggled with this awful bathtub episode, but people have told me it gets better after that so maybe some day I will give it another try!

    In February I tried a new mascara called long & lush, can’t remember who makes it, but I am really liking it and actually had someone compliment my eyes/eyelashes!
