favorite things with becky
As promised, each of us on the team will take a turn to share some of our favorite things here on the blog throughout the month of October. There is no rhyme or reason to our sharing. We just each have certain things that we think make life better in one way or another … and we’re happy to share. None of this is sponsored. It’s just stuff we love.
Alright! I’m kicking things off, so here. we. go!
PERI CHARGER. My husband is great about being aware of the latest & greatest in technology. Once in a while I actually take interest in some of those gadgets. This portable charger is pretty cool with its integrated lightening cord and super flat shape that’s just smaller than my iPhone. This went with me everywhere when we were traveling around Europe this summer and I never had to worry about a dying battery. Obviously I don’t have to be traveling to appreciate it.
STONEWARE. We’ve been using Pampered Chef baking stones for at least 15 years. In my experience, they’re just awesome. The more they’re used, the more seasoned they become and the better they work. In the picture above, the really dark baking stone is our oldest and most seasoned piece. The lighter one? It’s what I use most often because I regularly bake chocolate chip banana bread as mini loaves. I hate to say it, but I’m not even sure those are still available right now (?).
LINDT CHOCOLATE. Let me be more specific — it’s the dark chocolate with a hint of sea salt that has me all … mmmmm. It’s truly so yummy. In fact, you don’t even catch the touch of salt straight away and then … there it is. So good. I keep this in my desk drawer at work and have a square or two just about every day. The obsession began while we were in Sweden back in June.
THERACANE. What the heck is this, right?? It’s a Theracane, friends, and it is awesome sauce. Here’s the deal: I learned about this tool during my recent series of physical therapy appointments. I was dealing with some pain and discomfort in my upper back and neck and physical therapy really helped me to sort through those issues (thank goodness!). This little concoction right here, strange as it looks, makes it possible for you to work through the “knots” on your back on your own, and I can tell you first hand — it works wonders. I picked this up on Amazon and let’s just say, I’m not the only one in the office who’s a fan. Yep, we bought one for the office, too!
MY iPHONE. As much as I would love to come up with something truly unique, I keep coming back to the fact that I really do love (and use) my iPhone 6 Plus so much. I do believe in taking breaks from technology, but that’s another topic for another day. I absolutely love the quality of photos I can take with this device that fits in my pocket. I super love taking pictures every day, editing those pictures (check out my editing tips), and scrapbooking those pictures using the Project Life app — all in the palm of my hand! Technology blows my mind sometimes.
Stay tuned for more favorite things from each person on our team!
