six nice things

-
A few things that I've been liking recently:
-
1 | three-quartered v-neck tee from gap -- I bought two of these on a recent excursion to Gap and I have been wearing them pretty much all the time since then. They're fairly cheap (I got them on sale for $10) and they are super comfy. And what I love most about them is that they are really versatile: I can wear them to ballet with gauchos or I can layer them with a cardigan for a more dressed up look. The fabric is pretty thin and the neckline obviously comes down rather low, though...so a camisole underneath is helpful.

2 | the gentle art of domesticity by jane brocket -- For Valentine's Day, my lovely parents gave all of us kids gift certificates to Barnes and Noble. So yesterday afternoon, Brother and I stopped by the bookstore and perused around for awhile. I happened upon this book and absolutely fell in love with it. I will write more about it later, but it is so full of beautiful, eye-catching inspiration. The photos are beyond gorgeous. And it makes me just want to stay home and knit and bake and start a garden and study art history.

3 | painted red album by jj heller -- I happened upon this music album the other day and I am completely in love. It's a wonderful mix of that sort of indie sound and beautiful + contemplative lyrics. I think JJ Heller might be a new favorite.

4 | hair pom pom DIY -- I am on this little kick and I am loving any sort of flower or pom-pom squeezed in next to a pony tail or a bun. They tend to be rather expensive store bought though ($10-15), so I am thinking I will have to try out this lovely little do-it-yourself hair pom pom.

5 | nexxus nourishing botanical shampoo -- I have been using this shampoo for the past couple of weeks and I really, really like it. It's a tad bit more expensive, but there really is a silky difference between this shampoo and others that I have used. It's also paraben and dye free. And it smells incredibly good. (And, by the way, it's much cheaper in stores than what I've linked to here on Amazon.com--I don't spend $30 on shampoo, thank you very much.)

6 | the small rain by madeleine l'engle -- This is another book I picked up at the bookstore yesterday with my brother. I've thoroughly enjoyed anything I've read by L'engle, so I was excited to find another one of her books. I've only read the introduction and the beginning part of the first chapter, but I already adore it. According to the back cover, it is a "genteel exploration of the interior landscape of a sensitive young girl."

  1. yay! So glad to find someone else who likes her as well. I've been listening to Painted Red all week long and haven't gotten tired of it yet.
