Some things on my happy list:
Abby and I made terrariums for the first time over the weekend and we are hooked. I’ve been wanting to try for a while and Abby saw some in a shop in our neighborhood last week and was completely enchanted. I told her we could make some together and she couldn’t stop talking about it all week. We will definitely be making more.
- the perfect red nail polish for spring
I work in the beauty industry and the biggest perk of my job is free product. Lots of free product. I don’t think I can ever leave my job because I’ve become quite spoiled by it. Recently, I received an amazing gift bag from a very generous vendor. In included a beautiful red nail polish that I have become obsessed with. It is a bright and cheery red that is perfect for spring. It also has a wide, flat brush that magically makes it super easy to apply. Seriously, I am manicure challenged and I can apply this with no problem.
- chai cart
The Chai Cart has made its new weekday home right in front of my office. I cannot tell you how happy this makes me. Especially with all the rain we have been having. I leave the fluorescent lights and recycled air of my office as often as I can and I can think of no better reason to make a quick trip out than a cup of rose chai. So good.
- green garlic
Green garlic has been at the farmer’s market for the last few weeks. The season is pretty short, so I make sure to get it every week while I can. And every week, I make this soup. It is, hands down, one of the best soups I have ever made and it is so simple. It has around 5 ingredients and takes no more than 30 minutes. I love the alchemy of really simple recipes. If you can find green garlic (sometimes called spring garlic), I think you should give it a try.
Happy Monday friends! What’s on your happy list?
