My Favorite Things, For Now

Here is my compilation of some favorite things (right now).

#1: My Chacos.
They are green and snug and it feels like they're making love to my feet when I wear them. Arch support, awesome tan lines, sandals you can HIKE IN. Nuff said.

#2: Romance Novels
Don't be hatin'. I know there is a taboo. If you are someone encouraging this you suck and clearly have no idea what you're missing out on. It's not girl porn! It's... foreplay.
My personal favorite is To Love a Thief by Julie Anne Long.

#3: Sushi
I was introduced to this delicious treat by one of my best friends in junior high. Her mom is Korean and loved to cook for me since I'd devour anything she put in front of me.
They called it Kim-Pop. I call it delicious.

#4: Bridesmaids
Ladies: go see it. Hi. lar. i. ous.
The kind of chick-flick that every girl can relate to, and even the boys can appreciate.

#5: Be Curly Style-Prep
Ben often (lovingly) refers to my nappy hair as Hermione. As in, "Babe, your hair's a little Hermione in the back." This little hair-care wonder is the best because it's specifically for taming frizz and flyaways ala Ms Granger.
And you know this list wouldn't be complete without a little Aveda lovin.

#6: Henry Cavill
He will definitely be getting his own post pretty soon here. He is graceful perfection. And the next Superman, which I feel like I can live with. Happily. For the rest of my life.
And yeah, he gets 2 pictures. ♥

#7: De La Rosa Mexican Candy
These were like the ultimate treat in my Spanish Immersion-filled elementary school years. Delicious, melt-in-your-mouth, peanut-buttery candy. That they apparently sell at Wal Mart.

#8: Pirate Steeze
Also known as summertime steeze, but it's really all the same thing. Beachy hair with a few braids for good measure, rings on every other finger, vests and corsets. Head scarves. Hemp shoes (Nomadic State of Mind makes the best. I love mine.)

#9: My David Bowie Shirt
They say a picture's worth a thousand words, so without further ado:

I tried really hard to make it to 10 but 9 will have to be good enough today. Leave me a comment and tell me some of YOUR favorite things.


  1. Mmm I love the pirate summer steeezzze.
    My current favorite things:

  3. People have been talking about Chacos forever, and I just assumed they meant those chocolate dessert tacos. I guess I'm out of the loop! P.S.
