What I’m loving and reading in December 2017
What I’m Loving
Today’s Showroom Leggings
I realize leggings have been popular for a while now, but I finally found my perfect pair so I need to share them. For just over $12, these leggings are super soft with a yoga-style waistband. I really can’t explain how comfortable these are, and without a big price tag! They have also held up super well through washing and frequent wear.
L’Oreal Dry It Quick Primer Spray
In all honesty, I don’t often take the time to dry my hair. But when I do, this spray is amazing! It really does cut down on drying time and it leaves my hair looking like I just left the salon. I really can’t recommend it enough; and for only $4 it is definitely worth trying.
I am decidedly an Aaron Sorkin junky. I have never watch anything he has written and not loved it — Newsroom and West Wing — and Sports Night was no exception. We recently found it on Hulu and binge-watched both seasons with great joy.
What I’m reading
‘Braving the Wilderness’ by Brene Brown
I have loved everything I read by Brene Brown and “Braving the Wilderness” is no exception.
From Amazon: “True belonging doesn’t require us to change who we are. It requires us to be who we are.” Social scientist Brené Brown, PhD, LMSW, has sparked a global conversation about the experiences that bring meaning to our lives—experiences of courage, vulnerability, love, belonging, shame, and empathy. In “Braving the Wilderness,” Brown redefines what it means to truly belong in an age of increased polarization.
‘The Selection’ by Kiera Cass
I picked up “The Selection” on a whim at the library and it totally sucked me in. I ended up reading all 5 books in the series in less than a week. It is a fun read that was out of my normal genre. It is a cross between “The Hunger Games” and “The Bachelor.” I should note that the first 3 books are part of one story so you need to read all 3.
‘Are My Kids On Track?’ by Sissy Goff, David Thomas and Melissa Trevathan
“Are My Kids on Track?” is about the different non-physical milestone kids need to reach during their development and how to help them reach them. I loved this book and my copy is full of marked pages. I especially loved the very practical suggestions on how to help kids learn to self-regulate and deal with their emotions.
