This year, on the blog, I decided to start posting on a more regular and consistent basis. Every month I will be sharing a list of a couple of my favorite things. Whether it is a new found love, a rekindled love or something I just can’t keep to myself – you will find it here. Now for my January Favorites for 2017.
Peony Scented EVERYTHING
You guys… PEONY. I first fell in love with the peony scent when I was searching at Target (surprise) for a new laundry scent booster. They were all out of the kind I typically would buy – and all of the natural products were on sale – so I decided to give it a go. I washed our bedding with it first and Nate made a comment on how good it smelled. He wasn’t lying! If you haven’t tried the Mrs. Meyer’s Scent Booster – you are truly missing out.
After my new appreciation for Peony, I ventured to TJMaxx looking for some Valentine’s Day home goodies. While sniffing around the candle section – we all know I have an obsession – I landed on a DW Home – Peony Petals Candle. Amazing. I went back a couple days later and purchased another two for backup!
Rae Dunn Clay
Let me start by saying that I collect coffee cups. Whether they have cute sayings or cute colors – I want them all.
My love for Rae Dunn started a little before Christmas this past year. On Instagram, I kept seeing home decor account I follow showcasing these super cute coffee mugs, plates, bowls, etc. After doing a little searching – I found that you can mostly get these on Amazon/Ebay and that the price range is pretty steep for a coffee cup…
Fast forward a few weeks and I was walking through TJMaxx – again lol – and my eyes landed on the most beautiful BLESSED Rae Dunn Mug (FOR $3.99???). I had to have it. Since then, my collection has grown to include cups, plates, bowl and dishes for Nellie’s food, water and treats… all of which are finds from TJ’s.
La Croix – Cran-Raspberry Flavor
Would you believe me if I said I had never had a La Croix until last weekend? It is true. I took the plunge and I am happy to report that I was not disappointed! I have only tried the Cran-Raspberry flavor, so let me know if there is another kind I have to try!
Interchangeable Apple Watch Bands
Nate got my an Apple Watch for Christmas in 2015 and I love it! I recently figured out how to change the watch band and it honestly makes me love the watch even more! It feels like I have a brand new watch on my wrist whenever I change it – without the huge price tag. My watch came with a white band and I have basically been living in this blush pink one.
Chunky Blankets and Sweaters
This trend is one of my favorites this year. I love being able to wrap up in a cozy blanket or oversized sweater and still be fashionable. This Cowl Neck Sweater that I have been seeing all over Instagram and also this blush pink extra long cardigan – under $30 right now – are a couple of my favs. I have my eyes on this super cute chunky blanket from etsy – but I need some time to gather up the courage to spend $200 on it.
This is so cliche you guys… but I LOVE love. Walking through Target and TJMaxx and literally every other store and seeing love and Valentine’s Day stuff just makes my heart happy. I also just finished reading The Five Love Languages by Gary Chapman for a book club that I am in. I highly recommend checking it out!
There you have it – my January Favorites for 2017. Anyone else watching The Bachelor tonight? Do you love or hate Corrine? We have a pretty busy week and weekend coming up and I am really excited. 🙂 The Dance Team that I coach during the fall has their Sections meet this weekend and I can’t wait to lose my voice in the stands cheering for them! #LegendsRoar
I hope you have an awesome Monday and rest of the week!
