A Few of My Favorite Things: December 2014 Edition

Well hello again. My 'favorite things' posts are so fun for me to write. I get to window shop online for awesome things and share them with you all. 

So, without further ado, here are some of my favorite things for this month. 

Oh, look at that, another Eric Church-related item. You're not even surprised anymore, are you? I have all of his CDs except for this one, the one that started it all. Clearly, it needs to be on repeat in my car ASAP. 

I love this temporary tattoo from Anastasia Amour's line of affirmation tattoos. Need, want, must have. 

It's been so cold here lately. And hubby isn't always home to light a fire for me in the fireplace. (No, I can't do it myself, I can't be trusted. FIRE!!!!) So, what better way to stay warm on those cold, wintry nights than this super awesome electric blanket. I need one in my life. 

No Christmas can be complete without an ugly Christmas sweater. And this one below is my favorite. Notice the placement of the 2nd carrot. Bwahaha. 

And of course, no list of mine would ever be complete without at least one book. This one is particularly intriguing. Here is the synopsis from Amazon: 

"Cadence Sinclair Easton comes from an old-money family, headed by a patriarch who owns a private island off of Cape Cod. Each summer, the extended family gathers at the various houses on the island, and Cadence, her cousins Johnny and Mirren, and friend Gat (the four "Liars"), have been inseparable since age eight. During their fifteenth summer however, Cadence suffers a mysterious accident. She spends the next two years—and the course of the book—in a haze of amnesia, debilitating migraines, and painkillers, trying to piece together just what happened. Lockhart writes in a somewhat sparse style filled with metaphor and jumps from past to present and back again—rather fitting for a main character struggling with a sudden and unexplainable life change. The story, while lightly touching on issues of class and race, more fully focuses on dysfunctional family drama, a heart-wrenching romance between Cadence and Gat, and, ultimately, the suspense of what happened during that fateful summer. The ending is a stunner that will haunt readers for a long time to come."

So there you have it. What are some things that have caught your eye lately?

  1. Oh how I love me some Eric Church!!

  2. I read that book over the summer and loved it! Definitely one to check out!

    And I want that temporary tattoo too!

  3. I've never listened to Eric Church, but I am intrigued! And that book sounds crazy good!! About the only thing that has caught my eye lately are organization items (think shelves, baskets, etc) that will make our apartment just a little more homey...we are getting there! :)

  4. I'm in desperate need of a book that isn't a textbook and that book looks really interesting. May have to consider it before the next semester starts off again.

  5. I love electric blankets and anything-Christmas...even ugly sweaters! But that one may be too much for me...haha!!

  6. Ooooh Eric Church!!! I love him!
    And that book has been on my shelves for months and months but I haven't read it yet. I need to pick it up and get started.
