One of the things I want to do with this blog is to share my favorite things. Often times these are projects, recipes, and tips; other times they are just things. This will be (hopefully) the first in an ongoing series of my current favorites as well as things I do not recommend.
In September we did a Pajama Storytime at my library. The kids were instructed to wear pajamas and so I figured it would be fun to wear some too. Only problem? I don’t really own pajamas. I usually wear shirts and gym shorts to bed, if anything. 😉 So of course I used this as an excuse to get some super cute PJ pants. I remembered seeing one of my favorite bloggers, Kate from thesmallthingsblog.com wearing some cute ones from Target so I found myself a pair. LET ME TELL YOU. These are the most comfy pants ever. They are like wearing a warm loving hug on your legs. I would wear them every day, but I live in Florida and have a job. They claim they are a jogger which I guess is just regular pants, but they look like pajamas to me. Regardless, I totally wore them to Publix last night. Anyways, check them out here.
I was an early iPhone user; I picked up a 3G on release day and keep up with them until 2 years ago. I didn’t see anything great in the iPhone 5 so I switched to Android. I had a Samsung Galaxy s4 for two years and it was fine. Everything worked well, I just never happy with the photos. The only pictures that came out good were ones that were lucky enough to have perfect lighting. Finally, after 2 years I decided to go back to Apple only because I knew the camera was superior. When out with my husband I had been making him take all the photos with his iPhone because I just knew mine was inferior. So I went and upgraded and I was right, these photos are so much better. I have nothing against android devices, I am just happy to have a good camera on my phone again.
Pour over coffee
While Charlie and I were on vacation in Chicago we stayed at a hotel that had a kettle and pour over coffee in the room. I tried it and liked it; I love how simple the whole thing is. You are in complete control of everything and it’s cheap! I picked up this pour over cup on Amazon for $5. Get yours here. (Mine is size 01)
Amazon Prime Music
I have had Amazon Prime on and off over the last 5 or so years and I signed up again back in September. I have been using it for the shipping and books and a few weeks ago I found out there was an Amazon Prime Music app as well. I downloaded it and I LOVE IT. Its similar to other streaming music and downloadable subscription services. You can stream artists, albums, playlists, ect and you can download them too. Being that I have a new phone (with no music on it) I went ahead and downloaded several albums. I love that I can download for use in the car and when I am away from wifi and I can also stream whatever I want. I know the $99 Amazon prime annual membership is a little high just for the music, but if you were on the fence about it before and think you’d like this feature I want to let you know its worth it. Purchase a prime membership here.
So those are my faves for this month. Do you agree? What are your current faves?
