Happy first day of May! Do you guys have any fun plans this month?
We’re heading home to see family so that should be exciting. I’m also hoping we get a chance to go to the springs or the beach while we’re there. I haven’t been in years and have been dying to go. I really miss the water. But we’ll see!
Whatever this month has in store for you, I hope you find time to relax and enjoy it! Until then, sit back and enjoy a round-up of my favorite recent finds!
Favorite Brunch Food: Spring Tea Sandwiches with Sunflower Dill Spread. How beautiful are these little sandwiches? I feel like they would be perfect for a Mother’s Day brunch!
Favorite Rainy Day Food: Peanut Lentil Curry. We’ve had quite a few rainy days this spring and it’s sent my curry cravings into overdrive. This one looks super creamy and easy to make!
Favorite Book: What Alice Forgot. The the storyline of this book is genius and left me constantly anticipating what would happen next. However, I felt like the book could have been shortened by at least 50 pages. The author spent a lot of time on the main character’s sister which didn’t really add much to the story for me. Still a great read though!
Favorite Scent: Aveda Light the Way Candle. Is anyone else obsessed with the smell of Aveda products? I go crazy for them! I recently picked up one of their Light the Way Candles and it smells incredible. Plus each purchase helps bring clean water to those in need. It’s a win-win situation.
Favorite Home Decor: Circular Mirrors. I don’t know what it is but I can’t get enough of circular mirrors lately. I just think they add such a pretty balance above fireplaces, benches and walkways. Definitely going to pick up one for our future home some day.
Favorite Cleaning Tool: Lodge Scrub Brush. For the longest time I’ve been using sea salt and a rag to clean my cast iron but I still had a hard time getting little bits to come loose. That was until I got this scrub brush. You guys, it works so good. I wish I would have gotten one sooner. I highly recommend it if you cook with cast iron on the regular!
Favorite Beauty Product: Andalou Naturals Pumpkin Glycolic Mask. I feel like I talk about this brand in every favorites post but I can’t help it. They make the best stuff and this mask is no exception. It instantly refreshes my skin and leaves it glowing all day long.
Favorite Show: Planet Earth II. Have you guys seen this show yet? We watched a couple of episodes when Brandon’s dad came to visit us last month and it’s freaking incredible. The footage of the wildlife will take your breath away!
Favorite Cookie: Salted Dark Chocolate Pretzel Cookies. These cookies look like a sweet & salty dream come true! They’re also gluten-free and refined sugar-free, assuming you use GF pretzels. Looks like I need to do some baking very soon…
