It’s The 3 Little Things

3_little_things

I am so happy to hear that you guys are enjoying our new feature on the site. I loved hearing about your three favorite things too from your week. If you missed last week’s edition we chatted it up about plushy boot inserts for worn out boots, my obsession with BB cream, and my new favorite spring layering piece. Be sure to check that out!

Here are 3 little things that I enjoyed this week!

twice

Twice

Have you heard of Twice? It is my new little fashion obsession. Since I live in a small town, Chicago sometimes becomes the destination to have a wide plethora of shops.  Thanks to Twice though, I can find those wardrobe pieces, but at a fraction of the price since the items are gently used, typically 60% or more off their former retail prices.

The other bonus is that if you are weeding through your closet, you can send them to Twice and they can sell your items for you. Just let them know you need a bag and they will ship it to you to fill.

With Spring comes weddings, graduations, and summer parties. I plan to use this site to grab some fancy frocks this year and save a ton of money. Pictured above, is my first purchase. Anthro, pockets, AND polka dots? Be still my beating heart.

Waterlogue

Have you heard of the Waterlogue app? I am absolutely in love with the water colors you can create with this little app. My best friend’s birthday was coming up so I wanted to do something special for her day.  I snagged her family photos from when their home was being built and got frames to put them in to hang in their new home.

I then spent the rest of the day plopping all of our favorite photos in it to see what they would look like. Beach, travel, and landscape photos turned out amazing with this little app.

I just emailed the photos to myself and then printed it on heavy cardstock. I did 8×10 prints, but you could adjust your print sizes according to your frame. ($2.99)

sleepytime extra tea

Sleepytime Extra Tea

I’m trying to break myself of the habit of needing a nightly glass of wine in the evening to unwind.

Don’t judge.

With all my tummy issues, the dietician I saw suggested making the switch over to tea to help my stomach.  I have difficulty unwinding in the evenings and still needed something that would help me with that. I had been taking melatonin, but seeing this piece on it kind of freaked me out about that.

I found this Sleepytime Extra Tea and I don’t know what voodoo is in this stuff, but it makes me feel sleepy and relaxed at night. I actually do know what voodoo it is… it is valerian and it seems to work like a charm for me. I sleep good and I have no problems getting up and around in the morning. This has replaced my melatonin hangover and I have been really happy about this little life switch.

I add a splash of almond milk and honey to it and have really been looking forward to this in the evenings.

What’s making you happy this week?
