Things I'm Loving: October Edition

Good morning!
It's hard to believe it's already Thursday. I have a busy day volunteering and running errands today. However, I did want to make sure I got to this post this morning because I love doing these. Feel free to share what you are loving these days, whatever it is!

Things I'm Loving: October Edition
1. You may remember if you have been around long that I have posted about my love for Jamba Juice. Well, while I love them my wallet does not at almost $5 a smoothie I have started making them on my own. I usually make one as I'm heading out the door and drink it in the car as I'm getting to where I need to be!
My recipe for smoothies is: 1 banana
1 cup of low-fat vanilla yogurt
1-2 cups of frozen strawberries (or whatever fruit you want)
1/4 cup OJ or cranberry juice (whatever juice you have)

Blend and enjoy! Add more liquid if you want in thinner. I like to drink it with a straw!
2. My next love is a candle from Wal-mart. I know you're not going to believe me when I say that it smells amazing and fills our whole apartment but it does and it's only $3.50. I have pictured Hazelnut but my favorite is the Pumpkin candle and the Mulled Cider is pretty amazing too. I usually buy the ones in the glass container with 3 wicks. Try it, you will love them!

3. This is nothing new but I love the Today Show. I'm watching it now as I usually do as I'm drinking coffee, checking emails, and writing my blog. However, I hate the 10:00 hour.

4. As I mentioned before we have the windows and screen doors open and I am in love. Light the above mentioned candle, put on a sweatshirt, and open your windows. Do it. That is my slice of heaven.

5. For about the last month my finger and toenails have been painted Revlon Vixen and I love it. Not only does it last for at least a week on my fingers (longer on toes of course) but it's the perfect fall color in my opinion. It's dark without looking black and it goes on very easily!

6. I am so addicted to Nip Tuck it is disturbing. I'm telling you that Netflix Instant to our XBox 360 is dangerous. I'm currently on Season 5 Part 2 and I am going to be so sad when I'm all finished. I love it. Oh Dr. Christian Troy....
7. Cranberry juice is a must have these days. This is nothing new but I go through phases where I really want it a lot and then it will wear off and I won't buy it for awhile. I love the all natural kind that's a bit bitter. Yum!

8. Pantene Time Renewal Conditioning Mask is a product that is new to me that I'm loving. I use it about once a week and I feel like it's keeping my hair healthier. You leave it on for about 3-5 minutes and for $5 you can't go wrong!

9. If you have never tried Rex Goliath I highly suggest you check it out the next time you're at the store. I love it because it's really delicious for $5.99/bottle. You can see how I roll. I love the Cab Sav but that is always my favorite.

10. Last but not least I am loving the new Zac Brown Band CD "You Get What You Give", which just came out about 2 weeks ago. My favorite song by far is "Quiet Your Mind", track 7....check it out.

So that is what I am loving these days as it's slowly turning chillier here in South Florida. What are you loving? Any must try products or food? Share!



  1. Mmmm, Jamba! If you like that smoothie, you should try the Berry Topper Ideal Meal. I make it at home every other morning, so good! You can get the pumpkin flax seed granola at Whole Foods. I use 1C 8th continent light vanilla soy milk, 1 big spoonful of Fage 0% greek yogurt, with 1/4C blueberries, 4 or 5 strawberries, and half a banana (frozen, & blended, not on top). I prep the frozen fruit in individual ziplock bags before the week for a quick & healthy breakfast!
