links + small things

My favorite ingredients for skincare products

Well, the weather looks like rain from now until the end of time so I’ll be spending a lot of time in my lounge sets, slippers, and watching my favorite TV shows. Speaking of watching things, Justin and I watched “Let Him Go” last weekend, and DANG it was intense!

How was your week? We are celebrating Luke’s birthday today! He turns 6 and is very proud of that. I’m excited to celebrate him and give him his gift later this evening!

Here are a few links and loves:

A pretty candlestick.

Caralyn tried on a handful of Shackets on this post.

A post about non-toxic face tanners.

I’m a newly converted brussels sprouts fan and this recipe is next on my list to try.

Need to send a gift for Valentine’s Day but ran out of time?! Use Sugarwish! I cannot recommend this company enough. I’ve gotten deliveries from Sugarwish for years and am always so impressed with the packaging and freshness of the candy!

Kate, you described the movie “Let Him Go” as being intense. Did you and Jason enjoy the film and do you recommend watching it?

You took the words right out of my mouth about the rain. I so want spring, and something tells me that by summer we will be in a drought.
