I seem to post in little bursts here and there. I guess when I have the time and the whim, I take advantage! Here are my latest favorites, from pillows to apps.
Home Classics® Memory Foam Cluster Gusseted Standard Pillow. Can I just say that I am in love with this pillow? After I slept a night on it, I was dancing around the house singing “I’m in love with a pillow” to that “I’m in love with a stripper” song. (Yes I know I’m a total dork.) Seriously though, I sleep like the dead with this pillow. We already have a memory foam mattress and friends of our recommended memory foam pillows, saying how much they loved them. I was out with Salsa Judy last weekend and we stopped at Kohls. She said she needed a new pillow and I told her what I had heard about memory foam. The cost seems a little high, but they were 50% off and we had our 30% off Kohls coupons. So that pillow was basically a steal. I get home later that night and immediately want to try it out. At first it felt really really weird. Like hard as a rock. But once I laid my head down in it and got comfortable, I slept like the dead. It really gives good support to my neck and I’m one of those people who sleeps in all sorts of ways during the night so I need that. I have slept wonderfully every night since. Highly recommend!!!
Pandora app for Android. I know I am way late to the party on this but I haven’t had a smart phone forever and honestly don’t utilized the way I should be. However, I do have Pandora on my computer and realized that I don’t always want to take my MP3 player with me to the gym and my phone (I use my phone for a stopwatch between sets.). So I downloaded the app and use it while I’m doing cardio. My fave channel as of ate has been the Disco Cardio channel. I am so Salsa Judy’s daughter! She was a disco queen and I still love all the songs. The best part is the songs are pretty long so you forget how long you are on the treadmill or elliptical.
It’s a Brad, Brad World on Bravo. I will admit I wasn’t quite sure if I would like this show or not. I adore Brad—I think his style and POC’s (pops of color) are amazing. But Bravo already has the Rachel Zoe show so would this be the same? Oh yeah, I forgot—there are a bazillion Real Housewives show, so totally Bravo would make a similar stylist show. Anyway, I love Brad and love his InStyle page each month so I was willing to give it a shot. Love it! We get to see Brad as he is starting his career on his own (after departing from RZ) and he really is starting from scratch. He has clothes in his garage! The thing I love about Brad is his infectious enthusiasm for fashion—he still loves clothes. I also love his honesty—he isn’t afraid to show his vulnerability and struggles. We can all relate to that. I also love his partner Gary (who is the Abbott to Brad’s Costello) and his cute pups. The other part they illustrate in this show is how hard it actually is to be a stylist. It’s work, not just all fun all day. You have to pull the clothes, put the looks together, style them etc. I hope everyone realizes (I know I do when I try to figure out what to wear every day) that Brad’s job isn’t easy! I will definitely keep watching to see where Brad goes next!
This coat from Target. I wish I had a link for you but it’s sold out online and I just happened to get it in the store. For $17.95. Yes! That’s it ! You know you can’t go to Target and not check out the clearance racks. I just look to see if there is anything good there. That’s how I found my great Missoni blouse for $11. I was still shopping with Salsa Judy (actually needed lightbulbs and kitteh treats amongst other boring things) but we stopped to look at clearance. Saw this coat above and tried it on. It felt great and SJ gave her approval saying how ‘flattering’ it was. That means she likes it. I had a giftcard, so basically the coat was free for me! SJ also got a really cute dark green pea coat for $15. Woot for deals!!!
Rooney Mara. Check out her dress at the Golden Globes. Doesn’t look like much from the front but the back was so beautiful. She seems to have a great individual style.
If you haven’t seen her in Girl with the Dragon Tattoo—go and see it! I loved her performance in it and hope she is nominated for an Oscar. Her performance is haunting and empowering. And it doesn’t hurt that hottie Daniel Craig is in it too! Looking forward to seeing what she wears to the Oscars if/when she is nominated!
Okay---lunch time is over—back to the grind and please share with me your latest faves!
