{A few of my favorite things} 5.9.16

I miss blogging. The other day, my friend Amma asked me if I was still blogging, and I realized that I really haven't been blogging. I've gotten caught up in cleaning my house and finishing work projects and getting ready to move and trying to exercise and eat healthy and any writing has fallen by the wayside. I think I have several posts about recommitting to blogging. Let's add another to the stack.

A few of my favorite things these days:

:: The House that Lars Built. I came across this blog a month or so ago and fell in love. I feel like much of the popular style on blogs these days is very minimalist, clean and white. I love the idea of that, but it is so not me. I love lots of color and big florals (why I will never have a successful capsule wardrobe). This blog is perfect style inspiration for me. I also just bought her coloring book and it is gorgeous but not as detailed as some, which is perfect for me because I like my projects to be short.

:: Mrs. Meyer's cleaning products. They just smell SO GOOD. They make me want to clean (and I have cleaning). Favorite scent so far is honeysuckle, but I have been trying different ones because I had a coupon for $30 worth of free products from Grove Collaborative.


:: Peonies from Trader Joe's. Last year I saw some and thought, "Oh, I will buy some next week," and then they were gone. *Tragedy* I bought myself two bouquets as soon as I saw them this year and they smell wonderful and make me happy. I'm a strong proponent of buying oneself flowers. The emotional payoff is so worth it compared to the cost.

:: My bullet journal. I am a planner addict and have spent tons of money trying to find the perfect planner. The Erin Condren life planners are pretty close, but they are $50 and very bulky. I have even used LDS missionary planners, which are so detailed they come in six week increments. Nothing quite suited my needs. The reason the bullet journal is so great is that you design it yourself. You choose layouts and put them into a blank notebook and that way, you get exactly what you need. And you can constantly change it to suit your needs. It is slightly more time intensive, but since I absolutely love the planning process anyway, it just extends it a little. I have been using an old notebook, but I just bought a bright yellow Leuchtturm1917 that I can use when I use it up.

What are your favorite things?
