1.) Some friends told me about the European Craft Magazine Flow and I couldn’t resist and had to order one issue to see what the hype was all about. It’s a Dutch magazine which is also available in German and they just recently came out with their first two international (English) editions. I really like the magazine, it comes with some creative extras and it’s worth the 6.95€ in Europe. The International edition, however, is 12.95€ + shipping which makes it a pretty steep prize for a magazine. I don’t think I am going to order it again, but I can see myself picking up another issue when I am going back home.
2.) I bought one of those Cuppow mason jar lids and it’s amazing. I love drinking out of mason jars (not just because they’re pretty, but also) because I like drinking from a glass rather than a plastic cup. This can also be used with a straw which is awesome for all cold drinks.
3.) You know that I am a big fan of making my own cards and I am very picky when it comes to store-bought cards, because usually it’s one or the other: either I like the design, but not the message on the card or vice versa. However, I am really liking Trader Joe’s Greeting Cards right now, because they have a lot of cute cards with beautiful designs and lovely messages that I fully approve of. And at $0.99 a pop, these are great to have in stock.
4.) I’ve been trying to stop using my beloved Coffeemate® in my morning coffee, because I know that the ingredient lists leaves a lot to be desired. I didn’t realize though how attached I had gotten to the Coffeemate® taste in my coffee and how hard switching to something else is going to be. One alternative that I found (and kinda like right now) is Organic Valley Hazelnut Half & Half. Do you have any other suggestions? (Non-GMO, carageenan(-and-other-crap)-free?)
5.) I usually go through phases with certain foods and this month Mexican food was my favorite. We especially like a little taqueria not far from our house. They have the best burritos in town – hands down!
6.) Like I said yesterday in the Birchbox review, I love pastel colors for nail polish and my current favorite is the Revlon Provence Color Stay Longwear Nail Enamel which is a light pastel purple-grey. So pretty!
