1) I bought a new pair of prescription sunglasses as a birthday present to myself last month. I do have a sporty pair as well that are 5-6 years old. My prescription hasn't changed much so they are still great for active and outdoorsy activities, but I love having a nicer pair to wear with everyday or nicer clothes.
2) I have changed my allegiance for running fuel from Clif Shots to Honey Stinger gels and waffles. The consistency of the gels is so much better for me compared to Clif Shots or GU. It's a little thinner so it goes down easier without the gunky aftertaste. The waffles are my new go-to right before I start because having to actually chew something while running seems like too much effort!
3) I was skeptical and hesitated to buy these Good Manners Flash Cards but I'm so glad I did. Swede loves them and her manners have significantly improved in the past couple weeks. She asks to look at the cards every day after breakfast and dinner. We'll learn one new card and review the old ones. I don't expect the novelty will last forever but it's been a great kick-start to basic manners.
5) Last but not least, I bought a new pair of my favorite pajamas, the Asian Wrap Cropped Pajamas from Garnet Hill. Having matching pajamas makes me feel grown-up and sophisticated. I think Audrey Hepburn would have worn matching pajamas.
That's all! What are you loving lately?
