Still doing some #reverb catch-up. I'm excited to share some of my favorite things of the year with you. I always learn from people's favorites lists whether it's books, movies, skincare products, t-shirts, music, whatever.
Columbia fleece in Blue Macaw: This wasn't new to me but I hadn't been able to wear it last year because it was too small and so I was able to rediscover it once I lost weight this year, which made me really happy. It's so warm and soft and in my favorite color, blue.
Mumford & Sons, Wilder Mind: I played this album on repeat. Songs from it are littered throughout my monthly playlists, particularly this Summer. Something about it just connected with me: the lines from Wilder Mind and the way that Marcus Mumford delivers the linesstill affect me, particularly that pause before "if you want": You can be every little thing you want nobody to know/And you can try to drown out the street below/And you can call it love/If you want
Laura Geller Color Drenched Lip Gloss in Milk Shake
Rich Argon Colour Protect Shampoo: I got a sample of this and really loved it. I've been using it as my travel shampoo and when it runs out I'll have to seek out a full sized bottle. It smells great and I like the consistency of it.
Alterna Bamboo Smooth Dry Oil Mist I read a ton of lists of the best Hair Care products and this seemed to be on every single one. I love how smooth it leaves my hair and that it helps to fight the static of the winter.
Amazon Fire Tablet: I only recently got this when it was on sale on Black Friday. I wanted something that I could use when I didn't want to take my iPad Mini with me. So far I like how easy it is to borrow and get Kindle books. The biggest drawback is how quickly the battery drains, though it does charge really quickly.
Lore Podcast with Aaron Mahnke: I discovered this while teaching podcasts this semester. I was instantly enamored. I love the way Mahnke paces the stories of folklore he covers and even when I know a lot about a subject he covers, I still find something worthwhile in each episode.
I can't find a link to this Coach wristlet. My sister-in-law gave it to me and though I used other purses and wallets this year, I always come back to this one. I love the color palette and it holds everything I need except my phone. However, I do have a tendency to forget it on tables and in bathrooms, so I have to be careful to remember it or keep it attached to my wrist.
Tek Gear capri workout leggings: The ones I have are sold out, but these are similar. I lived in these this summer, really comfortable, breathable, cute.
Words on a Coaster coaster by Raygun: I stumbled into this store when I was in Kansas City this summer, and I wanted to buy the whole store but I just found the coasters really funny so I snagged a couple that now sit on my side tables.
Expedition Unknown with Josh Gates: I'd watched a few episodes of this off and on before but this year, I watched whenever I could.
