New Favorite Things
Individual Sized Special K Cereal – I have always steered clear of individual size cereal boxes b/c they are normally super pricey but this week I found a coupon for them and they are amazing. Convenient, pre portioned and delicious. Cereal is definitely one of my red light foods, meaning its tough for me to eat only the 3/4 of a cup that the serving size calls for. These little boxes keep me in check and they are adorable. This week I tried a new breakfast with this cereal and its one of my new faves! Top a light yogurt, I used Fiber One Strawberry, with the box of original Special K then top off with your favorite fruit, I used Strawberries and it was delish but bananas would be great too
Victoria’s Secret Body Butter – I have never been the type to like the feel of lotion, it kind of grosses me out. I came across these little containers of body butter at Victoria’s Secret when they were having one of their semi annual sales and they were only $2.50, so I couldn’t pass them up. I use the body butter after I get out of the tub on my lower legs (they get really dry and ashy lol) my elbows and my feet. I LOVE it! It is so smooth, not at all greasy and my skin absorbs it right up and feels smooth for an entire day. They come in lots of different fragrances so that you can find one that’s right for you.
Gray Nail Polish – There is something about a gray tone that seems unexpected in the bottle but just “right” on your nails. It surprisingly goes with everything and is a great neutral with a little bit of pizazz. Try OPI’s skull and cross bones or any other true light gray hue for a surely flattering tone.
Swingy Coats – My mom owns a vintage evening coat from the sixties that I have always loved. Its camel cashmere with shortened sleeves, a mandarin collar and covered buttons. Its the type of piece that my eyes are always peeled for when going to estate sales. I have been seeing homages to this same coat at some of my favorite stores. The modern designers are keeping this classic shape while modernizing the accents or colors. What a great way to bridge the gap between classic style and modern elegance. Most of the favorites that I have found are from Anthropologie or Mod Cloth..check them out.
