I think this will become a weekly or bi-weekly post. Mainly because I love lots of things and I love talking about the things I love. So without further ado, here are the things I love right now.
I’m really picky about a lot of the products I use, and this is especially true of my deodorant. I was obsessed with the Secret Platinum of the Glacier Mist variety. Best deodorant I’ve ever had. People used to walk by my desk at work and ask me why I smelled so good. I converted many of my friends into becoming Secret Glacial Mist deodorant wearers. Then Secret had to go and discontinue it, which obviously happens with all my favorite products. Sadness! However, I finally found a new deodorant that makes me almost as happy as my glacial mist. It is Secret Flawless in Completely Clean scent. Oh, and these all must be in invisible solid form. I hate gel anything. Which brings me to the question, why can’t I find woman’s shaving cream anywhere?? I hate the gel. Hate it.
I mean, this one seems obvious. I know it’s cheaper than CVS and Walgreens, but until yesterday, I didn’t realize how much cheaper. Especially compared to all my favorite pharmacies in the city. I got 2 of my above mentioned favorite deodorants for $5.63, whereas, in Boston’s CVS one costs at least $5.89. I got a couple nice toothbrushes (also very picky about these) for $2 each, when they would have been $4-something in Boston. Luna Bars are only 89 cents; even at Trader Joe’s they’re 99 cents. Basically, I’m very impressed with Target of Watertown’s prices.
Sara got me into eating these and they’re amazing. Really large serving of super creamy oatmeal with a little brown sugar and maple syrup flavor. I like to add some cinnamon on top. For only 150 calories, these make a delicious breakfast, especially if you involve some banana.
Finally tried the new sushi place right by my apartment (there are about 12 sushi places within a 7 minute walk of me) and I LOVED it! Because there was a gross little Mexican restaurant here prior to GinGa opening, I was a little skeptical and took my time trying this place out. Glad I finally did though. The waitress was adorable and after Sara and I ordered lunch she immediately brought over a complimentary appetizer for us to try (pictured above). The sushi was perfect and the prices not too bad. I live so close, this could be dangerous.
Everyone already knew I was obsessed with orange vegetables (yay for pumpkin season!!), but I have a newfound love for sweet potatoes. They make the perfect snack, and are allegedly the healthiest vegetable ever. They calm all sorts of cravings and they are just delicious. When I was little, I hated sweet potatoes and claimed my vegetables should not taste like dessert. Now, bring them on!
TKTC’s Quick Boston Visit
On her way back to Chicago from the Cape, TKTC stopped in Boston and we met up for a delicious dinner at La Famiglia Giorgio in the North End. The food was amazing, but the company better. And I got to meet Jamieson, who was absolutely awesome. It was so great to see them together and to see TKTC so happy. And I’ll hopefully get to see her again in a couple months when I visit Chicago. Not positive of the dates yet, but probably sometime in October.
