Monthly Favorites | September

1. This probably has popped up  in my monthly favorites before, because I continue to love Wasa Whole Grain Crispbread*. Most people think these are crackers (you can find them in the snack aisle), but no, this is considered “bread” in Germany (and other European and Scandinavian countries). It’s also one of those “healthy” breads with a very short ingredient list (Whole Grain Rye Flour, Yeast, Salt).

2. I started a new bullet journal a few weeks ago and I am using the Monbijou Bullet Journal* that a friend had sent me for my birthday. I love it.

3. If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you might have seen this recommendation around: my go-to dry shampoo for my fine, brunette hair is Batiste dry shampoo*. The problem with fine second-day hair is not just that it doesn’t have any volume, it gets greasy at the roots and even a ponytail doesn’t help with that. Anyone with the same problem? This is where dry shampoo makes a real difference (and I usually apply it at night before I go to bed). 

4. If you ever wondered which app I use for my photo collages (for my monthly recaps and currently posts), it’s the Diptic app*.

5. I don’t know if this borders on TMI, but I have to share my favorite razor in my favorites this month. I had a coupon for a different brand a while ago and so bought it and was so disappointed that I couldn’t go back to my beloved Gillette Venus smooth* razors fast enough. They just do the best job. Do you have a favorite razor?

6. J and I have been on a Pork Fried Rice kick. How many times do you think it acceptable to eat this per week? Asking for… us!

7. This item had been sitting in a box since our move but I recently got out my Mixpresso Milk frother* again and hello, where have you been all my life the last few months? I missed you.

What was one of your favorite things this month?

  1. I really wish I could keep up with a bullet journal. They are all so pretty and creative. I tried, but it turns out Im more of a scribble in a lined notebook kinda girl! LOL . So about razors, I totally use a mens razor. Not sure which one it is, but its better than any ladies razor I have used. Why are razors so expensive though?! I am pretty sure I read about this dry shampoo here. Bought it and love it. At the end of the day I was running my hands through my hair and my nails came up brown hahaha. But it helps fill in all the thinning spots :)

    1. Hey, no worries… “scribble in a lined notebook” is your kinda bullet journaling! Whatever works.

      Haha, I have had a bit of residue on my hands from the dry shampoo, but strangely enough, it has never stained my pillows and it definitely helps with the 2nd and 3rd day hair!).

  2. I love fried rice! We make chicken or pork fried rice quite often. It’s so darn good! I tried bullet journaling for awhile and fell on my face with it, but I keep meaning to try again!

    1. I know, it’s an on-and-off kinda thing for me too with the bullet journal…

  3. I love love love Wasa bread. Add some courage cheese and you have a delicious breakfast!!

    Also I’m always in the fence about bunker journals but would love to see how you are using yours. I have a panda planner now which I feel like I’m not really using fully. The daily calendar yes, but not the weekly stuff. But I would love to create layouts for movies I want to see and books I want to read, etc.

    Hope you’re having a great weekend!

  4. And by cottage cheese I obviously mean cottage cheese 🤦‍♀️

  5. That bullet journal is so pretty! I’m always buying journals and notebooks and yet still look for the perfect planner – can’t find something that has everything I’m looking for.

    I also use Gilette Venus razers!

    That photo app sounds good – the layout for these posts is great.

  6. I LOVE that journal. What a pretty pattern. That fried rice looks yummy. Have you used a milk frother with plant-based milk before? I always wonder if they work the same…

  7. I hope I’m not repeating myself here… but have you tried Trader Joe’s seeds and grains crisp bread? In our store it’s on the cracker shelf. Yum-my! Knaeckebrot!

  8. I always wondered how you do those collages so thank you for sharing I will definitely check the app. Also big fan of Wasa but I believe we had that talk already. I’ve never really used dry shampoo but maybe I need to give it a try.
