  1. Benefit Brow Bar. Y’all, I am so happy! They just opened a benefit brow bar near my house! I mean, it’s still 25 minutes away, but in an area where I am every week! I can now achieve my dream of having my eyebrows on fleek at ALL TIMES! But seriously, I have to go to them. I have crazy German eyebrows and sensitive skin and for whatever reasons their wax doesn’t make me break out. And they are dang hilarious over there at the benefit company.
  2. I am not an animal person at all. Not even a little bit, so it’s ironic that over the last week I have google image searched baby cranes(OMWORD), multiple breeds of pugs (anyone have one I could borrow for the day? It’s my brothers 23rd birthday and he would die.), snakes wearing hats, and baby donkeys. I don’t even know myself anymore.
  3. Cold Brew with Almondmilk and Honey. I was recently in Lake Bluff for my job and noticed that they had a new coffeeshop open. Well, that is right my ally! I stopped in and had their Royale w/ Bee which is their famous cold brew with Califia almond milk and honey! It’s so good! I have been making my own at home until I can get back down there. They also do a Dr. pepper Americano thingy that I need to try….

Laters,

  1. Califia Farms Almond Milk.  I love this brand! They are so cute and funny, and their products  are on point. I am not dairy-free(I live in the dairy state!), but we always have dairy-free milk around the house. I love it in my morning green smoothie, but it is fantastic over steel cut oats. Their Cocoa noir cold brew is also incredible, if you can find it.
  2. Kensington Palace Instagram . Seriously, what is better then seeing photos of Harry and his beard, and Kate and Wills in all the adorable togetherness? Nothing, nothing is better!
  3. Chacos vs. Birkenstocks? What are your thoughts on the matter? I have never been into either, but in my goal to become more outdoorsy, I need a pair of outdoor sandals. I linked to the pairs I think I would want. Tell me your opinions, please! Funny side story, I was at a slackline party/camp fire last night and everyone started talking about chacos and all the sudden they were taking a photo of everyones feet and only two of us were not wearing chacos. I think I know their opinions!

I am they Band

  1. I Am They. This is one of my favorite music groups and they have a new song out. I love their version of “No longer slaves“! I found this band last summer and I have to say, they were my soundtrack for the whole summer and it helped me get through a season that was unlike any other in my life.
  2. This blog post. I was listening to Chris Fabry Live the other day and Ron Hutchcraft was on. He said something that I have been mulling over, he said, ” Take care of the micro tasks in your day and the macro plans for your life will become clear.” Good thought! I am definitely not a high school graduate this year, but this blog post was an encouragement to my heart.
  3. This hair product. I saw on Brooke White’s snapchat her recommendation for this dry oil and seeing as how I think she is one of the coolest people EVER, I needed to try it out! I got mine at the TJ Maxx for cheap and I have to say, I have been loving it! I have never really noticed a difference when I use a heat protectant, but I can say that my ends have been smoother and my frizz has been non-existant ( which is a major feat for this curly girl in denial!).
