5 Things I'm Loving Right Now

I live on a very narrow street where you need to park half your car on the sidewalk. It's quirky. It's a little frustrating. But it's made me into an excellent parallel parker! About once a week, the Mister Softee** truck finds it's way onto my street and then crawls it's way down and tortures me, and probably ever child who lives on my street. Somedays (most of the days), I indulge and eat ice cream for dinner. 

Here's Five Other Things I'm Loving Right Now:

  1. ASOS Overalls. After trying to find a pair of black overalls that were both skinny and affordable for a little while now, I finally pulled the trigger and settled on these from ASOS. Being a girl that's on the tall side and also has a really long torso, I was a little skeptical on the sizing, but I ordered the correct size! It felt a little like a miracle! And, once I adjusted the straps to be as long as they could go, they fit pretty well! And, bonus, they're not $100+ dollars!
  2. NYX Lip Cream. I recently heard Anna raving about these on her channel and knew I wanted to give these a go. Cheap, easy to acquire, and semi-long lasting? I'm sold. I bought San Paulo, which is pinky mauve color that's slightly darker than my natural lip color. Definitely going to pick up a few more of these in the near future. (And yes, that means I'm carrying around ANOTHER lipstick in my bag.)
  3. Cerise Limon La Croix. I think I've successful drank every flavor of La Croix by now, and the cherry lime is my flavor. Thinking about working on a seltzer cocktail piece in the near future.
  4. I've been a big fan of WTF with Marc Maron and This American Life podcasts for a while now, but I just recently found Beautiful Stories From Anonymous People. I have about a 45 minute commute each way and this really makes the time fly. It's interesting. It's compelling. It's killer.
  5. Recently Stephanie Gilbert ran a sale on her social media resource library/community The Hangout so I decided to see what it was all about. It's a fantastic resource! I'm excited to see what else it offers.

**After I wrote this, I wondered if Mister Softee was a Philadelphia thing and after reading more about it, found out it's popular in the Northeastern U.S. And yes, the Mister Softee man is rather terrifying.

Happy First Day of Summer! Here in Pennsylvania, it's a lovely 83 degree Friday and we are set up to have a weekend with more great weather. I just adore summer.

As with any changing of the seasons, I feel like I need to purchase new things. New bathing suits, sunnies, handbags, etc. It's a pretty bad habit to have, but with so much cute stuff out in the world, how can you not want to replace everything you own every season (or week)?

Tim and I have things planned for this summer. A lot of relaxing, a week down the shore, a few weekend adventures, and tons of walks to breakfast, Chinese food, and drinks. Celebrate your weekend!

PS: Anyone looking to buy me a gift? I will take anything in this collage! Ha!
