My Favorite Things 2016
I'm no Oprah, but that doesn't mean I can't make a list of my favorite things! 2017 is upon us, and I am sure that many of us are hoping and wishing for some money or gift cards under the tree, am I right? If you're someone who doesn't know what you'd like to spend that extra money on (I cannot relate to this), I've made it easy for you! This little list is a round-up of the things I've loved most in 2016.
Y'all. If you are a local reader and lucky enough to live in Athens, you've got to try these fun restaurants:
White Tiger Gourmet
Lime La Croix for life, friends. 2016 can be named the year of La Croix. I was on the fence for so long, but when I finally crossed over, I did it wholeheartedly.
San Pellegrino Blood Orange is a close second, my friends. It's obviously a lot sweeter than La Croix, so I consider it a treat these days.
My Live Fashionable Mamuye tote is just the best. It was my big Christmas present from Ror last year, and I can say that I've pretty much used it every single day. It is amazing and I get so many questions about it. Not only is it beautiful, but their products are handmade by incredible women in Africa. (Use the custom link to purchase and get $10 off!)
Blanket scarf: y'all I have been wearing this thing like it is my JOB. I got mine from the bargain section at Target for $7 and haven't looked back.
Olive green anything. I love my military vest and jacket from Gap Factory. So versatile.
Leopard anything. I've got two pairs of leopard shoes and am seriously considering getting a third. I need leopard for all occasions and moods. I know I'm not alone here.
Present Over Perfect:
Uninvited: Living Loved When You Feel Less Than, Left Out, and Lonely
Unashamed: Drop the Baggage, Pick up Your Freedom, Fulfill Your Destiny
Hands down the best books of 2016. And I read a lot of books, folks.
Purposeful Planner: I use this every day to map out my work week, errands, meal planning, exercise charting, etc. It's the bomb and is good for a whole year and a half!
Cultivate What Matters Powersheets: I love love love this tool, y'all. This amazing notebook is my go-to resource for dreaming up goals and then making them happen. You need these in your life if you've got some dreams you want to chase, peeps.
Love love love my YETI knockoff from Walmart. Ozark Trail forever. It encourages me to drink all the water while looking oh so cool. ;)
ESSENTIAL OILS! Y'all I will love my oils and tell you about 'em till the cows come home. They have been so huge for my overall wellness- emotionally, mentally, and physically. I've started bringing my diffuser to work and it's been a game changer. Not to mention that I love the way that Ningxia Nitro gives me a pick-me-up in the afternoon slump.
What are some of your favorite things from this year? What have you been loving? I need suggestions on how to spend my Christmas money, too, so share in the comments what you just can't live without.
