it’s friday and i’m in love!

January 23, 2015

fri

happy red-velvet-friday to you m’loves.

it’s friday, and i’m a buck-toothed, tail-waggin, giddy-ass, disco’ing donkey.

even though i work the weekends i still love me an end-of-the-week party; mostly in my bed, with a remote control, my dvr crammed with shows or my latest read.

 reading all your kind, welcome-back comments slapped me into a silly delerium; thank you darlings.

here are a few of the fancies currently tickling my soul-bone:

almonds

ohmahgah!!

please tell me you’ve digested these salty, savory piñatas for your mouth?

trader joes just started selling them; i’m pretty sure i bought the costa mesa branch out clean, but you’re welcome to try.

i mean does it get better than this guest list:

marcona almonds: ✓

sea salt: ✓

black summer truffle: ✓

what else does one need in life?

in my case two gallons of water due to all the sodium consumption; a small price to pay for such oral happiness {yes, i said that.}

what does your january fridge look like?

 i’ve never been one commit to new year’s resolutions; especially of the diet nature; nothing like telling me NOT to eat something to send me on a weeklong trans-fat/high fructose syrup bender, but i’m not averse to an occasional tasty tweak here and there.

here is a list of must-have {health conscious} items we all could pick up next time we’re grocery shopping.

you can imagine my shock that my saliferous, hypertension-inducing nuts didn’t make the cut, but i am happy to report that i do eat a grapefruit every day.

yoga

 i’m foaming at the mouth, old yeller style, for these yoga mats from mark and graham.

the go-to online store for everything monogrammed, mark and graham just released these gorgeous mats.

it’s the perfect motivation for me to get back in the studio and find my crow pose again.

salts

yoga class aside, the crankiness of my knees and back have reached an all-time high. i’ve been marinating in these bath salts every night.

completely natural, vegan, and cruelty-free valentina’s home-brewed magickal mineral salts are the only antidote for soreness, fatigue, and general malaise.

the jasmine, vanilla and sandalwood in sweet dreams lullabies your mind and body into a peaceful sleep.

i love the refreshing pick-me-up of the sunny outlook salts when i’m feeling especially down in the dumps.

there’s also nothing like a fresh charge of rosemary to get you focused and on track; habit breaker helps stir the pot on resolutions and goal-setting.

and because it is a new year the essential oils of anise, bergamot and cacao in prosperity give you that extra dose of easy street as you relax in the bath.

i buy these individual salts at mother’s market, but they’re also available online.

HomeDepotFeature

 although mother’s market is the shopping post i adore most; it is unfortunately not a dog-friendly market.

here is a list of surprising businesses that {unbeknownst to me} are dog friendly.

you know i’ve ALWAYS wanted an excuse to visit tractor supply co.; now i finally have my excuse.

balzac

 

ok, stuff like this totally geeks me out:

the geniuses at info we trust were able to diagram the daily 24hr schedules of history’s most brilliant, innovative and prominent minds; breaking down their typical, must-do day.

french novelist/playwright, balzac is a man after my heart. he, too, had an “epic caffeine addiction” {is there any other kind?} and was known to down as many as 50 cups of BLACK {duh} coffee a day.

he also required a ton of sleep that included daily naps after his marathon coffee-sprees.

lastly, my playlists have been heavy with this new song from ellie goulding.

i’m afraid it’s the closest i will get to seeing/reading fifty shades of shit grey.

the whole soundtrack {which isn’t fully released until 2/10/2105} is fabulous..but this week “love me like you do” is blowing my mind.

so tell me kitty-kats…what is currently rocking your world.

see you on the other side of sunday…

and do forget to enter for a free box of santa barbara bars.~~~~~~~CONTEST CLOSED~~~~~~~~~

 

love,

katie

 

  • oral happiness and old yeller style foaming! god, i missed you.

    happy weekend!

  • The only thing that makes those nuts more perfect is to have them with a ruby grapefruit vodka…just saying. When you can drink again that is.
