His + Her Favorite Things


So, it’s that time again – time for another round of His + Her Favorite Things! Even though March has finally rolled around, we currently have 5+” of snow and ice on the ground. That’s just crazy. But, without further ado, here’s a round up of what Ash and I have been digging this past month…

His Favorite Things // 7thhouseontheleft.com

ONE // As soon as Valentine’s Day was over, stores everywhere pretty much packed up all of the pink, heart-shaped items and brought out all things pastel and spring-related. Despite feeling like this was rather strange (with the weather still being so wintery – we currently have 5+” of snow on the ground), this guy was happy because that meant Peeps were now “in season”. No, they aren’t the healthiest things ever, but I love them for a treat around this time of the year – and Ash tolerates them because she hates them… but I married her anyway.  TWO // We’ve had two different stick vacs for small cleanup jobs around the house, and we weren’t too happy with either models. Luckily, we finally found our favorite of the stick vac bunch. It charges by sitting on the stand (so that you don’t have to worry about taking the battery out every time you use it) and the middle section pulls out for use as a “dust buster-style” hand vacuum.  THREE // With this movie getting so many awards the other night, I figured it was time to watch it for myself. I honestly didn’t go into watching it thinking I’d like it that much (I usually like more fiction in my science fiction), but I really ended up enjoying it. I don’t know if it’ll be going on my top ten list or anything, but it’s definitely worth a watch. FOUR // I’m definitely not one for hair products, moisturizers, etc., but the last time I got my hair cut, the hair dresser used this stuff and it’s been a favorite ever since. This stuff is seriously awesome as a leave-in conditioner for my hair and beard. Plus, it doesn’t leave me smelling like a bouquet of flowers. FIVE // I love my office and its dark grey walls, but it has a tendency to be a little dark in the evening. Ash has been helping me pick out a lamp for the room and this lamp is a little pricey, but I think it would be absolutely awesome to bring some industrial character to my otherwise modern work area.

ONE // We purchased one of these beauties a few months ago and love it. I love getting up in the morning and having a smoothie included in my morning routine. I’ve been sticking to the same one every morning (apple, banana, strawberries, blueberries, spinach, sliced almonds and flax seed), but I’m looking for a new concoction to try. If any of you guys have a favorite smoothie recipe, pass it along in the comments. (I love ones with lots of spinach!) TWO // I was an avid InStyle reader for years, but ended up letting my subscription expire. I recently started up my subscription again and realized how much I’ve missed it. To me, a perfect night of down time involves a hot beverage, the latest issue of InStyle and my notebook to write down products I want to try out. THREE // Okay, so I know beauty vloggers have been around for yeaaaars, but apparently I’m just now getting the memo. I came across Fleur DeForce while looking for some info on a new face cleanser I wanted to try out. First of all, I love her accent. Second of all, her coloring is similar to mine, so her makeup suggestions are always great. Another favorite of mine is Essie Button. She’s really funny and, again, has similar coloring. I love both of their monthly favorite videos as well as their “beauty haul” and “empties” round ups. // FOUR // I’ve been on the hunt for a new makeup bag, and I fell in love with this one at first sight click. The fun colors, ikat(ish) design and polka dots had me at hello. FIVE // For the past few months, I’ve been on the lookout for a new foundation and, let me just say, I have found the holy grail of foundations. I could really go on and on about this stuff, but I will refrain. I actually found out about it through Etsée’s video showcasing it’s awesomeness. Tarte’s Airbuki brush is the icing on the cake for this product.

So how about you all? Any particular favorites this month?

    Okay, so this might seem strange but I’m excited by the Tea Tree hair and body. I do volunteer work in Cambodia and we wash our hair with tea tree shampoo to keep little buggies out of our hair. I like the idea of an all in one wash since we don’t take many personal items with us.

      Not strange at all! I ordered some facial serum that should be here later today and I keep checking the tracking number because I’m so excited, haha.

    I love my InStyle subscription but I think I have to let it expire. I’ve been so busy for months now that my magazine reading has fallen way behind (my night stand has magazines that haven’t been touched that go back to November). It makes me so sad but any time I’ve had free time I’ve been fitting in another chapter of G.O.T. so I don’t get anything spoiled for me when the show starts up again in April.

    I have the newer version of that vacuum and I don’t know if you can still return yours but I HIGHLY recommend this one. I could only find it on QVC when I ordered it. It has this amazing brush roll cleaner feature and it is 18v. http://qvc.co/1l5SBbP

      It’s too late to return ours, but I’ll be sure to pass along the info to my mom who’s in the market for one!
