“Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with strings
These are a few of my favorite things……”
Thought I’d share some new (and one semi-old) favorite things. Enjoy!
>>>New favorite: WEBSITE
The Brave Girls Club is a website I check daily and actually receive e-mail updates called Your Daily Truth which are just a perfect pick-me-up every morning. These are my type of girls—the website is described as “a worldwide community of women who want to live the best, happiest, most productive and fabulously brave life they can possibly live…and that means something different to every single one of us.” I’m obsessed. Below is a Your Daily Truth e-mail that caught my eye and stuck with me.
Just when the days start getting longer
I walk the streets I never knew
The sun comes out for you
And if you could see
What’s come over me
Then you would know
Cause I’m walkin’ free
The wind at my back, bathed in afterglow
Actually isn’t a new favorite, but a recently remembered old favorite… Afterglow by Vanessa Carlton. Download ASAP.
>>>New favorite: PLACE
Yesterday, Jordan, Aimee and I went to Brooklyn Flea in the morning and lusted over unique jewelry, furs, knick knacks and pretty much….everything. The entire vibe of the place reminded me of an Etsy haven. Clearly this is a popular spot:
- “One of the great urban experiences in New York.” —The New York Times
- One of the Best Antiques Shows in the U.S. —Country Living
- One of New York’s Essential Pick-Up Spots —Time Out NY
It’s a really easy place to find; the directions are available here. I found a r-i-d-i-c-u-l-o-u-s fur sweater and have a strange feeling I might get second looks at OU when I wear this, but….whatever.
>>>New favorite: SNACKS
My life changed a little on Monday when I sampled the Vegan Divas brownies at work. The company advertises their products as organic, dairy-free, and cholesterol-free. Absolutely faaaaaab. They sell brownies, cookies, muffins, rolls and trail mix (see full product line here). The sweet tweets are available at several hot spots throughout NYC so make sure you pick something up soon!
>>>New favorite: SURPRISE
Leave it to Courtney (such a queen) to send Aimee and I a sweet surprise package! We were beyond excited and surprised for adorbs picture frames, two a-mazing CDS, snacks and headbands! She knows us too well. I’m excited for more of our favorite queens to come visit TODAY!
