Five Things I Love // Vol. 2

The last volume of this was in October so it seemed the perfect time to share a few favorite's lately. Noticing the small things should be a part of everyone's day, I highly recommend documenting it in a journal or on the notes app in your phone. Would love to hear yours!

1. Dry Shampoo. Why did I wait so long try this? I don't know but I picked up a bottle from Target last week (this one to be exact) and after a little workout one morning I needed to run out the door for errands, so I decided to try it. It's going to be my favorite new accessory for my hair friends. Truly.

2. Cookbooks aren't that complicated. I have a fear of forgetting ingredients, something not turning out like the picture, etc. Hence the reason why I have used Pinterest and recipes from memory over the years. I finally realized my new best friend in the kitchen is mise en place which is prepping all the food and items needed before cooking, why I never did it before? No idea. I would usually just grab what I needed next. Now? I bought two cookbooks (this one and this) and am loving the recipes.

3. Podcasts while cooking or folding laundry. They keep me entertained and truly make the time pass quickly. You can check out a few of my favorites in this post.

4. I cut my hair last week. It might not seem like much but I have had pretty long hair for many years. Finally decided I wanted to try a completely new hairstyle and now I can't believe I waited this long! I have been pinning fun hairstyles to try with the shortish hair.

5. A walk outside every day, even in cold temperatures has proven to be refreshing. Anne from Modern Mrs Darcy couldn't have said it better. Get outside friends, bundle up and take a walk! The outdoor sun and air can truly do wonders.
