Things I Love Right Now

I really like it when I read product reviews on other people's blogs, so I thought I'd do some on mine! Here are some things that I am completely addicted to lately:

#1- The new Coldplay CD. It's awesome! I think their sound has really improved. I like a lot of their older songs too, but the new album has so much more of an edge and just a cooler sound. It reminds me a bit of U2's style, but updated and still unique. My favorite song from the CD is 'Viva La Vida.' Talk about a song that gets in your head!
#2- The chocolate mousse $2 dessert shooter at Applebee's. I could eat one of these every day! It's smooth, creamy, and completely fulfills my chocolate craving without being too much. It's the perfect cute little size.

#3- Hand soaps from Bath and Body Works. They have a 3 for $10 deal right now, and these soaps are so luscious and smell so yummy it makes you WANT to wash your hands all day! I love the lotions too of course. My favorite summery scents for the soaps are Coconut Lime Verbena, Midnight Pomegranate, Cucumber Melon, and Mango Mandarin.

#4- The perfect summer lip gloss- Victoria Secret Bare Bronze Lip Shimmer in the Golden Light shade. It's light, really moisturizing, and smells and tastes so good. It's very sheer, not at all sticky, and glides on really nicely. I keep it in my purse.

#5- Fabric softener! I didn't even discover fabric softener at all until this year, because my mom never used it when I was growing up and I just never thought to try it. I love it! My favorite is the Downy Simple Pleasures in Vanilla & Lavender. I love putting on shirts and just inhaling this fragrance.

I'd love to know what everyone thinks of these! Or any of your favorite things lately too.


  1. I am going to need to try out some of those things. Thanks for the recommendations!

  2. I totally want the cold play CD and yes, you have addicted me to simple pleasures Downy! I'm craving Victoria Secret Lip glosses though, ugh! I wish we had one by us.

  3. NICE list! I LOVE good smelling hand soap like bath and body works! :)

  4. I have never heard of that music group before and I am going to check it out!!!

    I also haven't tried the Applebee's Shooters...but I am definitely Going To!!! Yummm!

    I love Bath & Body Works & I LOVE all of the SMELLS you listed!!!!

    and I LOVE LOVE LOVE that Lip Gloss..I used to wear it all the time!!!! I got it from victoria's secret and LOVED it!

    And I absolutely love the Lavendar Vanilla fabric softener...but i can't use it because my son's skin breaks out with any scented laundry detergent/fabric softener! But it DOES smell SOOO good!!!

    Great post....I love getting to know you better!!!

    Your friend,

  5. Great list, Ash. Your blog is way cute. I wouldn't really say I'm a blogger yet, but I'd like to be soon. I feel like before I really become a blogger I need to have a cute blog instead of just using one of the generic templates. How did you get your cute background? That's that part that totally confuses me!!

  6. Those desserts look YUMMY! I love your list -- I think I'll make one too! ;)

  7. I also *adore* the fabric softener. I always put in extra when I wash bedding because I LOVE going to sleep to that scent. I even have it in a scented oil fan scent.

    And the Applebees' dessert look positively sinful. Devilishly delightful. And heavenly. Do they deliver at 11:00 p.m.?

  8. I also love the shooters at Applebees!!!

  9. Thanks for the recommendations, especially the Applebee's shooters. We're going there tonight and I might have to give it a try!


Comments make me happy :)
