Snow days + shopping

I'm pretty much done with the winter. Mother Nature has been dropping snow on us week after week and now, she's decided to drop the temps into barely liveable #s. Like what gives? I know, I know, stop complaining. Like I always say, I do choose to live in New England, so it's kind of one of those things. 

I will use this Presidential day off to post about some new things I'm crushing on:
  1. Like to Know it {here} >> I kid you not, this site is amazing. Follow them on insta, and sign up on the site... then the magic happens. "Like" any IG pic that is linked back to the site, and it will email you the product details. I've found myself obsessing over fashion bloggers lately and this has made it worse #DangerZone
  2. Roasted Garlic >> Random, yes, but I never roasted garlic before? How and why I have no idea, but my life has been changed for the better. So easy to make! {here} Delicious, creamy, garlicky heaven. It melts- in such a wonderful way. I've been eating it with kale and eggs {heat EVOO in a pan, smash a few cloves of roasted garlic in it, then saute kale leaves in it. Make sure you get a few of them crispy- fry up an egg or two with the yolk in tact, and enjoy}
  3. Tarte LipSurgence Skintuitive lip tint {here} >> I just bought it, but am already in love. It  is a pink lip tint that changes based on your body's pH and goes with your skin tone automatically. I have found that it goes a little Barbie pink on me, which is clearly a wonderful thing. It makes my heart happy.
  4. Red wine + dark chocolate >> my girlfriends and I went to a little storefront for Breakwater Vineyards in Rockland, ME last summer and we did a mini tasting. They provided dark chocolate to taste with the red wines. It is kind of mind blowing when you do it. I forgot how amazing it is. Recently, I was drinking my yoosh {here} and was munching on some dark chocolate chips- Eureeka! I could taste the cherry, I could taste the black currant. And I could taste the heaven. The complexity of the wine comes out and it really is amazing. This, also, makes my heart and tastebuds happy. {learn more about it here}
  5. My chambray shirt {mine is here, others here and here} >> literally my favorite piece in my closet right now. I have a mid-tone colored shirt, and want a light wash and a dark wash. The best look IMO is the denim shirt, topped with a high-crew neck sweater, with a show stopping necklace over. Like this: 

I just ordered a bunch of new necklaces from {another guilty pleasure... yikes I have a lot} and they should hopefully be delivered tomorrow. Just in time to make it into my suitcase for Costa Rica! One more week!! :)
