a new year!

a new friday to fall in love!

so far miss 2014 is a tickle to my feathers of happy; i’m optimistic for all the possibility this year holds.

on new year’s day i received my copy of within, dr. habib sadeghi’s new book on spiritual awakening and weight loss….my nose has been buried in it ever since, highlighter and pen in hand, underlining, circling and gleefully marking up my copy with things that inspire me.

i’ve followed dr. sadeghi, founder of be hive of healing and healing institute of beings, for a couple of years now; i am a firm believer in his integrative approach to healing, and his conclusion that unbalanced energies can contribute, cause, or aggravate disease.

while marketed as a “weight-loss” book, this manual is more of a handbook on how to approach life wholly, loving, and balanced.

i highly recommend.


i’m not proud of the next admission, but i’m not exactly hanging my head in shame either.

for the last two weeks i’ve lived mostly in my pajamas.

there. i said it.

i get home, and even for just 45 minutes before i have to go out again, and i’ll throw on my pjs in the hopes of catching a quick nap, or three.

i don’t know about you, but dry-wicking lycra isn’t the most sleep inducing fabric.

these nightshirts from pj salvage and ralph lauren are my current favorites; not totally grandma gowns, but still cozy like grandma’s home-cookin.

how am i just arriving to the EOS party?

petrolatum, paraben, gluten, phthalate, & cruelty- free, this vitamin-E loaded lip balm instantly hydrates my lips, getting them properly kissable.

the sweet mint flavor has me applying all hours of the day, in an effort to satisfy my mint-chip gelato cravings…so far it’s worked.


and speaking of cravings….

two months ago i raved about crème brûlée almonds from squirrel brand…these sweet morsels of candied crunch saw me through the toughest of december days….well move over cinnamon crusted goodness, there’s a new sheriff in town:

i’ve upgraded to the italian black truffle flavor, and life is rich.

more addictive than oreos, these salty buttons of gold satisfy my every now and then inkling for il buco’s pasta; without the east coast plane ride.

whole foods sells squirrel brand nuts or you can buy them online.

so there you have it….my friday favorites for the first week of 2014.

care to share any of your treasures?

until then….

see you on the other side of sunday m’loves.
