Today I thought it would be fun to post 5 of my favorite things right now. Ready?
Number ONE: The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah
This book drew me in and I loved every minute of it. The characters were beautifully crafted and the story pulled at my heart. It is the story of a family living in France during WWII and it just felt so real. I have such a deep admiration for people who lived through that war. There were everyday heroes everywhere. Read this and you won't be sorry.
Number TWO: Pure Barre
Back in September a new Pure Barre opened up just 4 minutes from my house and I decided to give it a try. I've been hooked since the first class. They only do classes and they are all so challenging. I feel stronger and more toned. Plus I love that it's small, isolated movements and not an hour pounding on a treadmill.
Number THREE: Magic Cookie Bars
Yes, I've made Magic Cookie Bars multiple times in the past, but I recently made this recipe from Six Sisters Stuff and love the addition of the sprinkles on top. It was just a perfect, playful way to top off one of the most delicious flavor combinations. Make these soon and your family will thank you!
Number FOUR: Stitch Fix
It's been almost three years since I signed up to receive my first Stitch Fix box and I'm still loving it. Each month a stylist sends me 5 clothing items in a box. I keep what I want and send the rest back. This is so perfect for me because I really don't have a lot of time to go shopping. If I do have time, I really don't enjoy it. So this allows me to save time plus try things that I might not have picked up at the store, but discover that I love. There is a $20 per month styling fee that goes toward purchasing anything in the box, so as long as I keep one thing, then I'm not loosing any money. If you are thinking about giving this a try, you can use my referral link that earns me credit. (The credit is absolutely not why I'm posting about this! I really just love this service.)
You can see my most recent Stitch Fix acquisition in the photo above that I wore to CHA earlier this month. I loved the bright floral print on the front plus it is seriously the softest shirt ever.
Number FIVE: Elise Gets Crafty Podcasts
I do a lot of driving and sometimes like to fill my time by listening to Podcasts. One of my favorites is Elise Gets Crafty where Elise talks with creative small business owners about creativity and applying it to a small business setting. She talks with many inspirational people and I love having ideas sparked by these interviews.
Well, there you have it! My first post of 2016. I hope you enjoyed hearing about a few of my current favorites and maybe one of them will spark something that you want to try. Enjoy your weekend!
