I don’t find much time to post here lately, as I’m busy nursing and keeping the little boys occupied. We’re doing great and adjusting well to our new routine. Sophia is sleeping and nursing wonderfully, which is all you can ask from a newborn! I’m finding it much easier compared to last time, partly because I knew what to expect. Partly because she’s one little infant to care for, instead of two.
But I did want to take a moment and share this little post some of my favorite finds from this summer; items I’ve discovered and enjoyed. Here’s what I’m loving:
First of all, after 10 years or more of searching, I’ve finally found a collection of fragrances that I absolutely love. And that would be the collection from Jo Malone. Thanks to Beth for introducing me to the line. For our anniversary Josh bought me Pomegranate Noir, which is dark, musky, and exotic. I love how the scent changes the longer I wear it. It’s the perfect scent for me, who typically likes men’s cologne better than women’s. Since this line is unisex, it makes sense I’d like it. I also love the fact you can mix any of the fragrances together to personalize it. I also got samples of Grapefruit, Lime Basil & Mandarin, and Sweet Lime & Cedar, all of which I liked as well. There also are corresponding body lotions and candles.
Since I’m a fan of making my own iced coffees, buying this insulated Starbucks cup was a great purchase. During the heat of this past summer iced coffee became a treat to enjoy during the boys’ nap time. I confess I made various versions several times a week. This cup kept my coffee cold in our unconditioned house so I could enjoy it leisurely.
For my birthday Josh bought me a green and brown damask version of *Shey*[B] Camera Strap Slipcovers. The selling point on this over other camera straps was the lens cap pocket. I don’t like my lens cap dangling from my camera, and I can’t tell y0u how many times I’ve lost track of it only to discover it stuck in my pocket or some other place I thought I’d remember. Now my lens cap fits snugly into the pocket and doesn’t fall out. Love that.
