Favorite Things under $30

I've been MIA for a while, busy with life and not feeling very inspired to blog or even work on projects that CAN be blogged about. I've even fallen down on reading blogs. I haven't read YHL in like.. a week. Shocker.

However, I couldn't pass up a chance to list a few of my favorite things for Nester's Favorite Things Linky party. Also, Christmas is coming up and apparently I'm hard to shop for. So, without further ado, here are some of my favorite things right now:

Starbucks VIA

Yes, it's pricey. But having a REAL cup of coffee when you're stuck in a hotel is a miracle that cannot be underestimated. I pack these with me for every overnight. I also keep some in my desk drawer at work for a mid-afternoon pick me up. Since real coffee is a 20 minute drive from my office.

Suave Waterless Shampoo

This stuff actually works and makes your hair look presentable on days you don't have time to wash. This is my go-to product for Saturday mornings when I want to run errands and not shower.

Yankee Candle Company candles

I love the Balsam Cedar scent at Christmas and Clean Cotton the rest of the year.

Cuties Clementines

These are super- yummy, not very messy, and seedless. A perfect snack that doesn't bruise when I carry it in my purse.

Burt's Bee's Lipgloss

My lips get horribly chapped in the winter, and this stuff is amazing. The hint of color makes me look presentable, even if I have no other makeup on.

Crane's Stationery

It's pricey, but nothing makes me want to write a letter more than the feel of that thick cotton paper.

Sharpie ultra fine point blue
Love this pen. If I could write only in Sharpie for the rest of my life, I'd be happy.

Fleece PJ pants

 Comfy, warm, yet presentable for the above Saturday morning errand running. And if you use them for working out, even better.

Fall wreath update- now a MisAdventure!

So my fall wreath, which has gottten tons of comments, is maybe not the best tutorial. I woke up from a nap yesterday to find this.

Hot glue does not hold well if exposed to heat!

So now  it's back to the drawing board for an adhesive that will hold up to the full day of direct sunlight my front door recieves.
Stay tuned.

Words of encouragement

You never know who you're going to inspire today.  Sometimes, a comment to a stranger can change their day. These random acts of kindness might give them the encouragement they need to take the next step. Maybe it's a big step, maybe a small one. It might be to dig through the fabric bin and see what you can use to make some fall decor. It may be to start changing your outlook.

Whether you're Nester, encouraging us to love our limitations, or one of the other 31 dayers, helping us improve ourselves, our lives, and our homes this month- you might just be the encouragement someone needs.

If you aren't already, check out all the 31 day posts here.
