Things I Love Thursday

This will be one of those #letmecatchupandcatchmybreath type posts. Life has been busy with indoor soccer for Miss C wrapping up and Girl Scout Cookie sales madness. On top of that, Miss A has just started gymnastics. I’ve also been battling some super congestion crud that has had me really dragging for the last two weeks. Boo on that and bring on spring!

So without further ado, here are some things I am loving, as well as one product my middle school daughter loves. Several of these items were sent to me recently by Tieks. (such a NICE Valentine’s Day surprise, especially since I felt rather crummy that week.) Not only were the contents amazing, but the packaging was very memorable – a fun heart-shape box in the Tieks signature teal blue that we were able to repurpose for Miss A’s Valentine’s Day school party.

Tieks Valentines Day

Wearing it and Loving it

Cardinal Red Tieks – The team at Tieks sent me the cutest Valentine’s package as well as brand spankin’ new red Tieks in observance of American Heart Association National Wear Red Day. Did you know that heart disease is more deadly than all forms of cancer combined? Tieks are uber comfy. I already had a leopard pair but the red are a fun addition! These babies have been on Oprah’s list.

Pink Chevron Vineyard Vines Scarf – I am not a big scarf wearer but I’m warming up to them. This beautiful scarf was also stashed in my Valentine’s day goodie package from Tieks. This pretty, feminine scarf is no longer in stock but it’s a fun pink chevron design that is really versatile. Hmmmm, I see more scarves in my future.

Stella & Dot Maya Bracelet – This is my first piece of jewelry from Stella & Dot and I love it! It’s very dainty and simple. Thanks again to Tieks for sharing some pretties with me. I have my eye on the matching necklace! The bracelet is now on sale for just $17.

Looking Great

Speaking of scarves, here’s a helpful post I pinned on 12 Ways to Tie a Scarf.

Here’s another great pin from Putting Me Together featuring 14 outfits created using just 10 pieces (which also incorporates scarves.)

I love discovering new blogs, and I love this new “real” fashion (real as in a busy mom like me could do this) blog called Because Pinterest Told Me To.

It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere

Smirnoff Pineapple Coconut Sorbet Lite Vodka –  Smirnoff sent me their latest lite vodka to try out. I’m not a big vodka drinker but I’ve already purchased an additional bottle. Really light smooth delicious flavor and the smell reminds me of the beach! (Which I so need right now!)

Deep Eddy Ruby Red Grapefruit Vodka – I recently tried this and loved it. Maybe I can learn to love vodka. This is a great mixer made in Austin, Texas, and perfect for spring and summer cocktails.

Tween Picks

EOS Lip Balm – My 11-year-old is obsessed with these! With fun flavors like Summer Fruit, Honeysuckle Honeydew, and Lemon Drop, and fun packaging, it’s easy to see why. EOS is just plain fun. (Amazon affiliate link included.)
