The March Crush List: Things I Love Right Now

In an effort to bring something new to the blog, I'll be sharing a few of my favorite things every month. No, I'm not pretending to be Oprah {because, hello!  I can't give cars away!}, but I'm simply letting you know of what things are currently on my list of favorites, what's making my life easier, or what I feel YOU would love, as well. So here we go...cue "My Favorite Things" from The Sound of Music!

If you have ever had long hair you know what a drag it can be to brush your hair after you wash it.  No matter how much conditioner you use, brushing can be a nightmare.  Well not any more ladies!  This brush is seriously AMAZING! It does not pull your hair and detangling is super fast, easy and pain free.  Check your local beauty salon for The Wet Brush, or buy it on Amazon for about $9.00

I recently went to the Women Get Social Conference in San Diego.  On the drive down with my roommate Megan, of Mamabub, she was playing this station on Pandora.  OMG!  I am hooked!  I'd actually call it OBSESSED.  If you are one of those sing-out-loud-I-don't-give-a-crap kind of people, then you need to hear this station!  Every. Single. Song is perfect!!!  I never even hit the thumbs down icon on this station; every song is that good.  My co-workers are glad to hear a new station, since the Miranda Lambert Pandora station had been playing none stop for MONTHS.  Yes.....months.  Now they're glad to hear me sing non-country songs.  {Yes, I sing at work.  I have no shame}.  If you are a Pandora listener, try this station.  You can thank me later! 

These earrings make my heart flutter when I see them.  You know that feeling when you see a perfect accessory for your wardrobe and you think, "I MUST have this for that one outfit that......."  Well, these are those earrings for me.  They go with everything. I particularly love the Elle earrings, because they're the perfect size for every day, but their new Alex and Alexandra earrings also have my heart.  And the new colors that have come out couldn't be more perfect for Spring and Summer.  They're bright and neon!  If you're that person that's afraid of wearing color, splashing color by way of gorgeous earrings is the way to get around that.  Trust me.  They're gorgeous!  Now if only I could get another pair for Mother's Day!  {someone tell my husband!}

As a runner, it's important to have clothes that are comfortable, lightweight and fit properly.  A while back I decided to try the activewear at Forever 21, because I just can't find the logic behind paying $40+ for pants or tops that I'm going to sweat in.  I was pleasantly surprised to find that the activewear at Forever 21 had all the requirements I look for in exercise clothes.  Their pants do not slip down at the waist, like many exercise pants tend to do on me.  And the tops are lightweight and of a breathable material.  While these clothes are not the kind I'd wear in a half marathon, they are perfect for my training days.  If you need inexpensive workout clothes that fit right and don't have you tugging at them throughout your workout, then try these.

People have always asked me how I keep my hair looking so healthy {keyword here is LOOKING healthy, because it's definitely processed).  My answer always is that I do not wash it every day.  Depending on how it's looking, I wash every two to three days.  Now, before you make a face, you should know that I can't get away with this, without using something to take that greasy look out.  For me, that product comes in a $2.74 bottle of Suave Dry Shampoo.  It takes that greasy look away from the roots, then I spray it all over so it gives it a nice scent.  For $2.74, you can't beat the efficiency of this product.  

So what do you think?  Have you tried any of the things on this month's Crush List?  What's on your favorite things list this month?


  1. Well I may forgive you for turning the station on Miranda because I LOVE her, but I know you are a singer and may have needed to belt out a few differnt songs- so I'm going to try your Pandora tip- then work my way up to the dry shampoo.....that has my interest as well........xoxo Nini

  2. I love everything on this list, too! Well, except for the Forever 21 stuff, but $10 yoga pants? I'm going to have to check those out!

  3. Major thankies for the post.Great.
