Our Favorite Things


Today seemed like a good day to share some of our current favorite things. None of the companies mentioned below know us, asked us to promote their product, or has paid us for doing so. These are just things we like and wanted to share with you. Nikki loves these Old Navy Compression Cropped Pants. They come in loads of colors and fun patterns and you can generally scoop them up for around $20 a pair.

This Spark People Total Body Sculpting Workout DVD is my favorite workout DVD of the moment. I modify it a bit to make it work for me. You can read my post with tips for making the most out of your workout DVDs here. They do a good job of providing modifications and created a nice mix of upper and lower body exercises. Oh, and they incorporate balance challenges into each of the three workouts on the DVD.

I splurged on some Zoya Natural Nail Polish this month. I love colorful nails, but am not thrilled about inhaling scary, toxic chemicals. This is a reasonably priced, natural brand, free of toxic ingredients such as toluene, camphor, formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin and DBP (dibutyl phthalate).

This cozy blanket by Sonoma. I got this as a Christmas gift this year and I am now dragging around my house with me, like Linus from the Peanuts cartoons. I'm always freezing and this thing keeps me warm while I do important things like binge-watching The Crown on Netflix. Anyone else watching that? It's so good!

Loving this pink(!) stainless steel cold cup from Starbucks. It's pretty and it keeps water cold for a really long time. They have it in a couple of other fun colors, including iridescent!
