A Few of My Favorite Things: May 2015 edition

It's been a little while since I've shared some of my favorite things with you. I know you're just dying to see what's on my list. Well, never fear. I aim to please. 

* Outlander

Claire and Jamie

I can't even describe it. This show is so good. I haven't read the books that the show is based on, but I still recommend the show. The basic premise is that Claire, an English woman on vacation in Scotland in 1945, accidentally travels back in time 200 years to 1745. She is already married in the present time. But she is not sure she can ever get back to her husband, Frank. And in the meantime, she meets Jamie, who fights tooth and nail to protect her and keep her safe, since times were different in 1745 and it was very dangerous to be an unaccompanied woman in Scotland - especially an English woman. She falls in love with Jamie, and it goes on from there. So, so, so, so good. Watch it! 

*  Tyme Hair Iron

I need this in my life. I saw a video of a woman using the Tyme Iron on Facebook and I was blown away. It straightens AND curls your hair, which I know sounds contradictory, but for those of us with curly hair, it would be a blessing and a timesaver. The problem with straightening your hair with regular flat irons is that you end up with super straight hair that just kind of hangs there. And unless you know your way around a curling iron (which my burn scars would prove I do not), you can't get those long, perfect waves. But this straightener does both for you. Omg. Need, want, must have. Haha. Let's just pretend it says $19.00 instead of $190.00. Womp womp. 


Mr. Thomas and Me

This awesome book lover's link up was created by Rachel and Amber. What I like about this link up is that each month there will be a different topic - for example, a book that starts with the letter W - and then everyone gets to choose their own book that meets that criteria. What an awesome idea. The first link up starts June 29th. Go check it out and see what the first topic is. I've already selected my book, wahoo. :)

* HUMAN Tanks

I've been spending a lot more time at the gym lately. And I've found that the proper gym attire is always a sassy tank top. I love these ones from HUMAN.

  1. I love that Flat Iron, I wish too it was only $19 :) hope you're well friend!

  2. Honestly, I would put the money in savings since I am trying to move at the beginning of next year. :)

  3. Oh I know, Outlander is something I really need to see or read, or both, but I just don't have time to get into another addiction at the moment! That book lovers link up looks good, will check it out x

  4. Right? I need it in my life. :) I'm doing very well, thank you. Hope all is well with you. Big hugs! :)

  5. Haha, I definitely know what you mean. Too many books to read, too many shows to watch, not enough hours in the day!!! :)

  6. I would kill for that flatiron, it looks so cool!

    Thanks for being part of the giveaway Mia!

  7. fun fact. I burnt my THIGH with my hair straightener on Friday. that's how long my hair is + how apparently unskilled I am with hot hair tools. I had my hair curled for me on Saturday, but it fell like, two hours later + was just pin straight again...

  8. My coworker has been watching Outlander and she loves it! I need to start it soon, but I'm trying to read the book first. And that reading linkup sounds cool! I think I'll look into it. I'm also hopeful that I'll have a chance to read the book for your book club this month! :)

  9. Im going to watch outlander ..

  10. I read Outlander when I was in high school and frankly, I'm surprised it's taken them this long to make a TV series out of it. When GOT is over I'll have to give it a try, thanks!

  11. YAY! So glad you are joining in with #Collaboreads! Can't wait to see what book you choose and what you think of it later this month! xo!

  12. I keep trying to talk my hubby into buying it for me. No luck yet. :)

    Thanks for letting me participate in the giveaway!!

  13. Holy smokes, your thigh!! Ouch x 1,000. I totally feel you on the hot hair tools. I just can't do it. Sigh.

  14. Outlander is the one of the few times that I didn't read the book first. I went wild and crazy though and bought the whole book series the other day. *gasp* :)

  15. Oh my gosh. I love it. Especially the accents. Rawwrrr. ;)

  16. Let me know what you think when you watch it. The accents - meowww! ;)

  17. Thanks, Rachel! :) I'm excited to participate.
