Favorite Things (Part 3)
Well, it’s that time again…
Time for my favorite things of the moment!
Carrots ‘N’ Cake by Christina Haupert
This book was written by Tina, the popular blogger who writes Carrots ‘N’ Cake. It is a quick and easy read (I read it in less than a day), and Tina is easy to relate to, honest, and humorous. She provides lots of healthy living tips, as well as a bunch of great recipes (including lots of cookie recipes!).
I’ve been a huge Audrey Hepburn fan for years and years- ever since I first saw her performance in the movie My Fair Lady. This book details her style, workout, and attitude about food. What I find most fascinating is that Audrey ate whatever she wanted in moderation and naturally favored healthier foods. She’d even have a square or two of Dutch chocolate each day, which makes me love her even more! Not only is this a great read, but it is a beautiful coffee table book as well.
Smooth Operator Micronized Clay Finishing Powder by Tarte Cosmetics
This is by far the best finishing powder I’ve ever used. It makes my skin so soft and smooth and really minimizes my pores. I first purchased it as part of my Toss the Junk Project and now cannot image my beauty regime without this stuff.
Trader Joe’s Honey Apple Butter
This is so ridiculously good that I cannot open the jar without eating straight out of it with a spoon. It tastes amazing on toast or on top of a bagel. If you live near a Trader Joe’s, pick up a jar ASAP. They are about $3/each. I heart Trader Joe’s.
Cashew Cookie Larabars
These bars have been on my favorites list for about 3 years now, and I seriously cannot imagine my life without them. Really. If these are ever discontinued, you’ll find me sobbing in a corner in Earth Fare right where they sell the nutrition bars.
Artisana Cacao Bliss
This is raw chocolate coconut butter (aka, heaven in a jar). It tastes wonderful spread on toast, muffins, bagels, crackers, and in smoothies. It tastes creamy and decadent, but it contains the antioxidants properties of cacao. Can’t beat that!
What are YOUR favorite things of the moment?
The weather has been just beautiful here in the Charlotte, North Carolina area, and I’ve been loving every minute of it. I hope that the weather is fantastic wherever you are too.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
