A friend of mine is doing a ‘Favorite Things’ gift swap with a group of girlfriends. I LOVE the idea. How cool to get a little something from each of your friends that represents what they’re loving at that moment! It got me thinking…what if I could round up all my favorite things as it relates to some of my favorite topics: health, home, personal well being, fashion and fitness?
So, here we go – here’s the list of a few things in each category that make my life a little easier, happier and better right now. Make sure you read to the bottom to find out how to win a free coaching session with me.
Right now, I’m really excited about my new baby food maker: Beaba Babycook. This thing does it all: steams, purees, blends and reheats. It’s making it super easy for me to make food for my new little eater. The bonus is that my not so new little eater is super curious about the new foods and she’s now eating a few more vegetables than usual!
To go along with it, I’m also loving Dr. Alan Green’s Feeding Baby Green book. It has so many great reminders of why and how feeding your kids healthy foods from the start impacts their whole life. Plus, there are a bunch of easy kid-friendly recipes to try.
I love my home to be warm, homey and organized. When it’s not, I can’t even think straight. So here are my two favorite things to make me love my home:
A mason jar that I like to fill with a few small flowers. I spend anywhere from $3 to $5 each week on a few beautiful stems and it makes me feel happy all week. I love the look of a mason jar too. Very casual and cool, but any bud vase will do.
I also love my organizing files, boxes and bins in my office. It makes the whole room look and feel neat and organized and it reduces so much clutter on my desk. They actually make me want to file (seriously). It’s absolutely worth the time and the investment to get an organizing system down for yourself.
Personal well being:
For me this category is about what you do, or what you use for yourself that enhances your joy and makes you happy. So, for me it’s two things: the Steve Jobs book I’m reading right now that I’m finding fascinating and enjoyable; and also this amazing blanket that I wrap myself up in every night. If you like warm and cozy, it’s the best. Enough said.
I’m definitely not claiming to be the most fashionable person, but here are two things that I can’t seem to live without right now. Have you ever tried Smart Wool Socks? They’re fantastic weekend socks. And I LOVE socks!
I’m not sure if this falls under the fashion category but I have to mention my favorite Bobbi Brown hydrating eye cream. This is a bit of a splurge for me, but this eye cream does wonders under a little makeup to make your face look well rested, hydrated and vibrant. I love Bobbi Brown because not only does she make beautiful makeup, but she also emphasizes healthy living and understands beauty from the inside out.
Right now, it’s my yoga mat that makes me happy. It’s simple, it’s orange and I can store it under my couch for easy access. I pull it out for a few quick situps, pushups or yoga moves when I have a few minutes.
These are a few things that I’m loving right now and make me feel inspired, healthy and happy in my own way.
