Things I'm Loving

Here's a rather random list of things that I'm loving right now.  I always like hearing people's recommendations on things, so I thought I'd share some of my own.  


First and foremost, let me just say I'm loving Steve Jobs and the new MacBook Pro.  It came yesterday.  I was worried about transferring all my documents, etc. to the new laptop.  I should have known that Apple has thought of everything already.  I started the new computer up and it asked me if I had a backup from another computer I wanted to load.  I hooked up my external hard drive and now my new computer is just like my old one, even down to the wallpaper.  I have all my documents, all 4000+ photos, all my software programs, EVERYTHING all loaded onto my new computer with just one click of the button.  This is just another reason why I will never go back to a regular PC; Apple makes my life too easy.
And let me just add, that everything about the MacBook Pro is awesome.  The screen images are so clear and sharp, the keyboard is back lit, and the multi-touch track pad is amazing.  Really this is just one sexy laptop!

I've been using the regular Aveeno Positively Radiant Cleanser for a while and really like it.  It is inexpensive, and it doesn't over dry my face.  Plus there is the fact that it is shimmery gold, and it makes me happy to wash my face with liquid gold.  Because I like the regular cleanser, I couldn't resist trying the Skin Brightening Daily Scrub.  Sometimes my face needs a good scrub.  My face feels so clean and soft after a wash with the scrub; I love it.  I'll still use the cleanser, but sometimes you need to scrub those dead cells off.  

bareMinerals Foundation is my new best friend in the makeup department.  If I want to look like I didn't just roll out of the bed with very little sleep, I need to put some make up on in the morning.  I had been using liquid foundation, but I am always afraid of it being too dark, looking uneven, or just looking like I have too much makeup on.  I love that with bareMinerals you look really natural.  I always describe putting it on like watching Bob Ross paint.  At first you are skeptical and thinking it isn't going to look good, but then as you approach the final steps you are amazed at how beautiful it came out.  Give it a try, but don't judge until you see the finished product.  
Speaking of makeup, if anyone wants to recommend a blush, I'm looking for a new one. 


The last thing I'll put on the list this week is Golden French Toast Coffee from Green Mountain Coffee.  French toast is probably my favorite breakfast meal, but my hips thank me for not indulging in it that often.  However, now I can have it as often as I would like--in the form of coffee that is.  I wasn't sure it was possible to capture the essence of french toast in a coffee flavor, but they did a great job.  It smells just like the actual food, and the flavor lends a sweetness to the coffee that I rather enjoy.

I currently use a MacBook and will upgrade to a MacBook pro sometime next year. I can't wait! We recently purchased a Keurig and it is amazing. I will have to try the French Toast flavor. :)

What a fun post! I am very envious of your MacBook. We bought an HP last year and while I love it, I am very jealous of the Mac owners! I love mineral makeup, I tend to get the Mabelline (???) version because it's cheaper. They have a great mineral blush and eye shadows you should try! They are gorgeous! I'm glad you checked out Shabby Apple. Can't wait to see what dresses your considering!

Thanks for the Golden French Toast. I'm always looking for new K-cups to try!

I love my Macbook and my bare minerals! Two things I cannot live without. My Mac had to go in for repairs this week and I am dying!!!

Oh my goodness--I just got in a shipment of Golden French Toast last week! It has become my absolute favorite. Even my husband will drink it, and he's not much of a coffee drinker!

Yay for your new mac!! I'm a coffee lover, but usually don't like flavored coffee. I recently got a programmable coffeepot for Christmas, and I love it... but then I went for an overnighter with some girlfriends and one of them had a Keurig. I thought it was SO COOL. Maybe someday!!

I love the Aveeno scrub, too. Just the right amount of scrubbiness without being too harsh!

Bare Minerals really is the best make up ever! I have the Matte version of the foundation and it looks fantastic all day! And they have the best make up brushes ever.
