Bath and Body Works Mentha Lip Shine

For the record, aside from a few select products, I tend to loathe anything B&BW. Especially if it’s called Sweet Pea or Sun-Ripened Raspberry. I don’t need to be haunted by visions of middle school, thanks.

One exception? Mentha Lip Shine. Cinnamon, Spearmint, Tint, you name it, I love it. The original was my gateway drug. My addiction was sealed when I discovered Spearmint. When I switch to spearmint it officially means fall has arrived.

If you think I’m kidding about my addiction, this is just what I grabbed from my drawer, purses and bags not included.


If you love me, you will not notify me of this year’s new flavors. {Cough, cough, I’m talking to you blackberry & peach.}

Artisana Almond Butter

I KNOW. You can probably find it in writing in more than one occasion on this blog that I solemnly swore I would never pay $11 for a jar of nut butter. And then I got a jar with a giftcard to iHerb and I literally ate my words.

Please do not tell the husband how insanely delicious this is, or I will never get to enjoy a spoonful again. $11/jar = gold. Translation: Let it be known that I am not willing to share.


Sunwarrior Vanilla Protein Powder

Pulverized whey protein and crazy processed who-knows-whats don’t so much appeal to me. Sunwarrior is raw & vegan and the vanilla flavor is delicious.





This has nothing to do with anything. I just love Shinedown. Old Shinedown more than new Shinedown. Any band that can get more than 2 songs on my all time favorite songs list is a-okay in my book. {45, Simple Man, & What a Shame, for the record.}

I Heart Radio


Since we’re talking music, the I Heart Radio app is the best technological invention ever. Because I do, in fact, heart radio. It lets me listen to my 2 favorite radio stations without the 2 to 6 hour drive. {DC 101 & 106.5 The End} And no, I don’t have a smart phone, but I do have an iPod Touch.




No, I won’t give you the recipe. YET. Winking smile

Just know anything drizzled in honey is delicious.
