Hey, hey! Happy Friday! It’s time for my second round of favorites. 🙂 Here’s the Top 5 things I’ve been loving this week:
1. Receiving Christmas Cards in the Mail!!
Thank you, truly, to those of you who sent me a Christmas card this year! They are my absolute favorite things to receive in the mail. Nothing beats the fuzzy feelings I get from the thoughtful gesture and words. ❤
2. RW Garcia – Organic Yellow Corn Chips
I spotted this “healthier” knock-off version of Fritos and I figured they’d either taste the same or maybe a little less flavorful. I was sort of right… they don’t have that oily taste and they’re not as salted but, for me, that was perfect. I think I prefer these over the name brand now.
3. Wicked Joe Organic Coffee – Roasty & Raucous Ground Coffee
Even though this isn’t a pure dark roast, it still has a very deep flavor. It goes down smoothly and definitely gives me the caffeine boost I’m looking for. It was on sale when I bought it but, if it weren’t, I’m not sure I’d choose it over others. Still, it’s lovely to have for now.
4. Etsy Shops
This year, I looked on Etsy for gifts before browsing the big box stores and fell in true love with the two shops I chose to purchase from.
bykauri is based in Canada but, she offers free shipping on everything– no matter the cost. In her shop, you can find bookmarks, cake toppers, accessories, wall art and more… ALL made out of wire. There are even different colors/finishes to choose from and if you want anything personalized, she can do that as well. 🙂 When I sent in my order, she had already put up a “Holiday Announcement” warning that she wasn’t sure if she could get everything out before Christmas but, I crossed my fingers and my recipient received it just a couple days before the 25th! Yay!
Okay, now, SecondChanceMugs is SO, SO cool! There are tons of different sayings and designs to choose from then, you get to pick hair colors and styles to fit you or whoever you’re getting the mug for (you can even do a whole family– including pets!) and everyone’s name is written underneath, too. If that doesn’t make a lot of sense, just click the link and check them out. You will be WOW’d! They are fairly priced, the shipping was quick, and it wasn’t broken when it reached my recipient. 🙂 They even offered gift-wrapping (for a small fee)! The best part, though, was the message they sent me after I put my order in:
I felt even better for choosing Etsy when I received it– I actually had no idea I was supporting something so wonderful but, I was extremely giddy to have helped. ❤
5. Love Island Australia
Again, I’m addicted to Love Island. This time, I’m watching Australians play with each other’s minds and hearts. If you love trash reality TV as much as I do, I highly recommend watching all versions of this show!!
Now, tell me, what have YOU been loving this week?!
