What I'm Loving...

It's been awhile since I did a What I'm Loving... post. Crazy holidays. No worries, it's back now!
Here's what I'm loving:

Aveda Brilliant Damage Control
I use this as a heat protectant (it also protects against UV rays), but I've recently found a new use for it - a couple of sprays on my hair in the morning helps to combat the static. (Have I mentioned how much I love winter?) Like all Aveda products it smells amazing, too. Definitely loving this lately!

Infinity Scarves
My obsession with scarves has been well noted for a long time but somehow I never had an infinity scarf. Consider that remedied now. (Twice.)

Florence + the Machine - You've Got the Love
Sometimes it seems that the going is just too rough
And things go wrong no matter what I do
Now and then it seems that life is just too much
But you've got the love I need to see me through 
Has Florence + and the Machine ever done a song I didn't love? Nope. 

MICHAEL Michael Kors "Astor" Bag
I've wanted this bag for a long time and finally got it for Christmas. It was worth the wait because I absolutely love it!

If the posts this week haven't made it abundantly clear, I've overdone it with the post-Christmas shopping. I feel guilty about it and I don't at the same time. I do this every year - I can't pass up the deals, and combined with the pile of gift cards I get, well, you understand I'm sure. Anyway, the new focus is cleaning, organizing, simplifying - typical New Year's goals (I'm late to the party, as usual). I've talked about this some on Twitter, but I'm pretty sure a blog sale of sorts is in the near future. Thoughts? Ideas?

Ok, so that's What I'm Loving right now! What about you?

Help me Rhonda, I mean Katie, I want the bag. I can't have it, so maybe I can settle for the Aveda? oy

And on the MM front...girl I'm off the wagon and ordering bangles. I realized tonight I just need more. The margarita sealed the deal.

I think I smell smoke...is that your credit card? or the wheels on the UPS truck stopping in front of your house again? bahahahaha!!

Have a great weekend!

You love winter?!? Ahhh I might like dressing in cute layers, but I prefer the warmer months if I had the choice :-P

Sigh....Florence and the Machine always brings me back to Christmas 2009 when I had a month off and listened to that album nonstop...

What do I want? Airfare to go home and see my mum. That, or the complete downpayment for my dreamhouse (working on that one at the minute ;) )

Amy Mcmillan said...

I'm loving jeggings, got my first pair this week. And I love Florence and the Machine too!

Jen HaHA said...

I use Aveda Damage Control before I blow-dry. It's so great and smells great, too! I can't believe I haven't heard talk about infinity scarves nor have I seen them before. My sis-in-law's first name is Infinity but she goes by her middle.
