Miscellaneous Monthlies: May 2014

I am back from vacation and just in time to enjoy the beautiful weather here in the Chicagoland area. Yay!  I like to kick off the beginning of a new month with my monthly favorites mini series videos on TBBB, starting with my Miscellaneous Monthlies where I share some of my favorite things from the past month (not including beauty – my Beauty Buzz update is coming soon!) in the video below:

I would love to know what some of your miscellaneous favorites from May were. Leave a comment if you care to share!
I can’t wait to kick off summer with more fun in the sun and travel! :)

  1. I just LOVE Pretzel Crisps too!! I could certainly eat a whole bag in one sitting. I would also recommend Sabra’s roasted garlic hummus. It’s quite delicious, but you may want to keep some mints on hand for after you snack. 😉

  2. You may not thank me for this knowledge-the Brownie Brittle from Knit Crate- is at Costco- $6.99 for a 16oz bag. One of my favorites with a cup of coffee in the afternoon as a pick me up. My favorite coffee these days is from a local roaster- Bird Rock Coffee Roasters- Los Amates. They won Roaster of the year nationally.

  3. Me Talk Pretty One Day. Love Sedaris. There is another author Laurie Notaro. She’s the closest thing to Sedaris I have found. Both are so laugh outloud funny I can’t read them in public places or people will think I am a crazy person.

  4. Aloha Jen! LOVE the glowy look you have after that lovely beach vacation, which btw made me so homesick! I really love David Sedaris – he cracks me up until I have tears streaming down my face. “Me Talk Pretty One Day” – if you haven’t read it, I have to recommend it! My May obsession has got to be the Bare Minerals Hydrating Lip Stain in Elation (blossom pink). It is insanely fabulous. I have never liked any lip stain I have ever used – they always look weird and unnatural to me, but this one is so nice and the color is so pretty and natural and matches my summer make-up so perfectly that I have been using it exclusively – and I am a lip products junkie!

  5. It’s so sweet that you started referring to Don as “dear husband” in your videos lately – it makes me smile whenever I hear that 🙂

    1. I’ve had it for years now…I think I got it from Francesca’s but I don’t know if they still carry it.

  6. My husband and I are also catching up on the Big Bang Theory right now! Love that nerdy humor 🙂
    The color on that Kate Spade bag is TO DIE FOR!

  7. Jen- I am dying to know where you got the yellow quilt and sham pillows on your bed. I have been looking for something like that to brighten up our bedroom.

    Thanks so much!
