Things I’m Loving – March 2017

It’s been a while but I want to get back into the swing of “Things I’m Loving” posts. Those posts were always fun to curate and a little more out of my usual “box” of topics. And aren’t we all dying to jump into something fresh? I have fun telling you about new things I’m digging. What’s your jam lately? Tell me in comments!

This Personality Factors Map is super cool and was insanely accurate (at least for me). Take the test at this link. I think it’s hilarious but true that it said I’m 94% in the orderliness category.


Snickerdoodle Donut Muffins! I made these a couple of weeks ago and they were awesome! They have all the flavor of snickerdoodles, the dough-like texture of a donut in the form of muffins. Heaven! (photo from SweetLittleBluebird)


Valerie McKeehan’s Complete Book of Chalk Lettering.  I’ve been dabbling in calligraphy and hand lettering a bit… and have been following Valerie’s instagram and I’m mesmerized by her videos. I’m not going to lie, I’m dying to try her book!


On Instagram: The Real Brooke White the former American Idol contestant turned lifestyle blogger at The Girls With Glasses chronicles motherhood, home renos, making a fool of herself in stores and general lifestyle in bright witty and often musical insta stories. She does everything I wish I had the courage to do on Insta-stories… laugh, cry, sing, dance and do life along with Brooke. You won’t regret it.

Trend Alert: Emerald Luce silk-cotton by Madeline Weinrib (Trade Only) - ELLE DECOR:

Okay… I know I’m late to the party on this one but I’m really feeling emerald green lately. I know, I know. It was Pantone’s 2013 color of the year. I’m way behind! I liked it then but I’ve recently been smitten with it in bold prints, next to soft pinks and even on jewelry and bags. Plus, St. Patrick’s day is coming up and green is just really growing on me. I’m secretly (shhh… don’t tell Hubby) shelving the idea of an emerald front door after we paint our house a soft gray hopefully later this year. I like it so much I even have an entire Pinterest board dedicated to emerald green. I hadn’t even realized until I sat down to write this post!


St. Patrick’s Day Cocktail: Pot Oro’ Gold.  #recipe #StPatricksDay #champagne #gin #grapefruit @lovehappyhour

Speaking of St. Patrick’s Day, I found a not-green-or-green-beer St. Patty’s Day “Pot Oro Gold ” cocktail recipe. Bonus points: it has Champagne in it. You can thank me later! (Photo by LoveHappyHour)


So what are you loving? Are you late to the party on anything like I am? Or maybe you are a trendsetter and way ahead. Tell me! I’d love a few new things to try!
