His + Her Favorite Things

His + Her Favorite Things

It’s a beautiful spring day here in Hanover, Virginia. Seriously, with the copious amounts of snow we’ve gotten this year, we were pretty sure it was never going to happen. I was prepping for an ice age. With the new month comes a new edition of His & Her Favorite things…

His Favorite Things // 7thhouseontheleft.com

ONE // I’ve been using the same tool bag for the past 6 years, and while it’s great for toting my most commonly used tools around, I really need a place to put all of my constantly-growing set of more specialized tools. A real, honest-to-goodness toolbox is in my near future. TWO // Knowing I love toast (Yes, I promise my wife can actually cook.), Ash sent me over to this article. Who knew gourmet toast was a thing? Now, breakfast will never be the same. Who am I kidding? Lunch and dinner might not be the same, either. THREE // Ashley and I are both obsessed with Aloe Blacc’s new album (we “fought” over who got to put it on their Favorites list). Honestly, I’m not totally sure how to describe it accurately. It takes old-school instrumentation and mixes it with new-school production value for an amazing combination. Definitely worth a listen. FOUR // This isn’t exactly new news, but I love coffee. If you’re used to getting one of their over-sweetened delightfully sweet concoctions and have never had a plain latte, do yourself a favor: order a pastry (if you’re game for a treat) and a plain latte. It’s world-changing. I promise. I don’t always go to Starbucks, but when I do, I order a straight latte.

ONE // The new Oh Joy collection at Target makes me want to throw a party. I love all of the bright colors and touches of gold. Even though we aren’t planning any parties anytime soon, I’m thinking about stocking up on a few favorites just for future festivities.  TWO // Okay. Forget everything you think you know about skincare and buy this stuff. I don’t know what magical properties are in this bottle, but it has changed my life. Okay, maybe not my life, but it has changed my skin. No, I take that back. It is life changing. I’ve been using it every morning and night (paired with the Kiehl’s Midnight Recover Serum at night) for about two weeks and my skin is the best it’s ever been. THREE // I’ve always been a fan of Greek yogurt, and I normally stuck with Chobani. However, I kept seeing the Fage commercials with Bobby Flay. I figured he seems to be a food snob, so it has to be good, right? Well, Bobby Flay is my new BFF because this stuff is freaking amazing. Greg loves the honey version and I’m a big fan of the raspberry. I’m looking forward to trying the plain Fage for cooking. FOUR // I’ve always been a fan of clean, fresh perfumes. I’ve been wearing Clinique Happy since I was about 15. I still love it, but on a whim, I wanted to try something different, I got my hands on a deluxe sample of Tory Burch. I love everything Tory Burch, but I still didn’t get my hopes up because I love my Happy so much. You guys–this stuff is amazing. It’s a really nice citrusy, fresh, clean and floral scent and I love it. This one is here to stay for sure. FIVE // Greg bought this for me one night while he was on an errand run to Target. Yeah, he totally knows my gold-loving self. It’s the perfect size for a few deck of cards and our score-keeping notebook. It’s definitely one of my new favorite storage pieces.

So that wraps up this month’s edition of His + Hers. What are you guys digging this month?

    Give Michael Kors perfume a try. I just did recently and LOVE it. Put the Michael Kors Glam Jasmine (Macy’s only) on my birthday list for a new spring/summer scent!

    I just bought the face cleanser! I’m really looking forward to trying it out because I need something. Question… was/is your skin dry or oily?

      My skin is I guess what you’d call “combination skin”. It’s kind of dry sometimes but maybe a tad oily above my eyes. It’s weird. Mainly, before I started using these two products, my skin was just flat and didn’t have much luminosity or life to it (does that make sense?). And don’t be turned off by the serum if you have oily skin. I don’t know how it does it, but it just fixes everything, even oiliness. It’s basically magic.

    I have that same Nate Berkus box and use it on my desk at work. It’s fab for post it notes and receipts to keep around.

    Oh my gosh, I’ve been using the First Aid Beauty Moisturizer since winter because hello, dry skin! It’s done wonders on my skin and I won’t go back to anything else! I should try the cleanser next.

    Have you tried Happy Heart? I wore nothing else but Happy for years but got Happy Heart as a gift and fell in love. It’s a little bit softer than Happy but still just as wonderful!

      Yeah, I tried it out a while back. I liked it but still stuck with Happy. I should try it out again though!

    I love Fage! My favorite flavor is orange cinnamon, but our Target has stopped carrying it — I’m hoping it’s seasonal and will be back in the fall. They’re all good, though!
