Monthly Favorites | May


At the end of each month, I share things that have made me happy, new discoveries, or recommendations that I find worthwhile. Enjoy.

1. This dress that I wore to the wedding and communion in Germany (I got it on sale at Macy’s, can’t find a link unfortunately). It’s super-soft, comfortable, and flattering.

2. German bread and rolls. Man, being in the land of bread for 3 weeks did not help my cravings for German breads, in fact, it made it worse. I am so glad I can get some decent bread at the International Market and bake my own rolls.

3. I picked up some new yarn when I was in Germany and I am currently working on a new project with this “Gipfelstürmer*” gradient yarn from 100 Farbspiele.

4. I got a manicure done before I left for my Germany trip and chose this Ella + Mila nail polish* (Honeymoon bliss). Subtle, but pretty.

5. I’ve been using this Bath and Body Works® Aromatherapy Body Lotion* in Orange + Ginger and it smells so good!

6. Everybody and their brother (well, in my case, sister, brother-in-law, niece, nephew, cousin + girlfriend) is wearing Naketano* Sweatshirts/Hoodies right now and since the brand is apparently ceasing production, I wanted to get my hands on one of those comfy sweaters with cuddly collars and thick drawstrings. Too bad I probably have to wait until fall to wear it again.

7. Not sure why Zwieback* is so hard to find in the US (World Market used to carry it, but not anymore), but you can be sure I got two boxes in Germany (at 0.89 € /each, mind you).

What was one of your favorite things this month?

  1. Oh man, that hoodie looks so comfy! Bummer they aren’t going to make it anymore! I’ve been wanting to try the Ella + Mila polish so I will have to give it a try now! And that dress you wore on your trip is so pretty!

  2. Man, I was super interested about that hoodie! Haha. That’s a real bummer that they’re ceasing production. I’m glad you got your hands on one before that happened!

  3. That hoodie looks amazing! I love cozy sweatshirts like that!

    Something I loved in May was fresh strawberries. I got 2 clamshells of them last weekend and they were SO delicious!!

  4. Ohh that sweater looks super comfortable. I’m glad you had a great time in Germany, though sorry it’s made your hunger for German bread more intense. LOL
