Newest Favorite Things II

August 22nd, 2011 in About Me

Time for the second edition of my Newest Favorite Things! Last time I did a post about this, my favorite things were Tomato Chicken Bouillon Cubes, Artisan Salt Company Salt, Izze Sodas, Aveda Pure Abundance Hair Potion, Blood Orange Italian Soda or Sparkling Soda, and Green & Black’s Organic Milk Chocolate Crystallized Peanut Bars.

A year later they are all still some of my favorite things, although the Watermelon Izzie isn’t so great and now the Italian Sodas I love so much are at Whole Foods and they have tons of other flavors.

But now for 2011’s list!

Newest Favorite Things II

#1 Whole Food’s Chocolate Stampede Trail Mix: It’s borderline sick how much of this I consume on a weekly basis. The mix has dark chocolate, milk chocolate, white chocolate, almonds, peanuts, cashews and walnuts. AND AT THE MOMENT I AM ALL OUT….AHHH! So, so good.

#2 TOMS: This last pregnancy was the first pregnancy where I had swelling and the TOMS shoes were a lifesaver. It was like wearing slippers all day. The corduroy ones are my favorite. For the upcoming fall season I bought myself two pairs, one of those pairs pictured above.

#3 Aveda’s Rosemary Mint Scent: At almost 30, have I found *MY* scent? I think so and my kids use it too. I love Aveda’s rosemary mint shampoo, conditioner and lotion. Whatever it is, I’ll take it!

Caslon® Ruched Side TeeCaslon® Ruched Side Tee

#4 Caslon’s Ruched Tops from Nordstrom: Who invented ruching? Whoever it was must have known that women need it after having babies. These shirts are comfy and the deeper V-Neck and ruching on the sides make you look slim. They are comfy, not too bad of a price, a nice quality and come in fun colors.

#5 Firoozeh Dumas’ two books: Funny in Farsi & Laughing Without an Accent: Boy, this woman knows how to write and is just so clever. They also are the perfect books to read when your are a mom who has to stop 12 million times while trying to get through a book. Her books are made up of a lot of stories. Each chapter is a separate story, which made it so I felt like I wasn’t missing out when I had to set the book down during the day. The books are memoirs that chronicle Dumas’ and her family’s lives when they moved from Iran to American when she was seven. The books had me laughing out loud, crying, realizing more and more how important family is and loving everyone out there who comes to America for a brighter future even more. Must read people, must read!
