Things I’m Loving: May 2018

Happy May! I’m so excited to share my favorite things with you this month. Who else can’t wait to see what new things I’m loving each month?

Schmidt’s Deodorant

Schmidts Deodorant, Things I'm Loving May

I’ve been using this deodorant for a few months now and, WOW, what a difference it makes! I’m trying to make the switch to more organic and natural beauty supplies. Did you know that the FDA is not required to approve beauty products before they hit the market? When I found that out, I really started to think about what I was putting on my skin. Schmidt’s Deodorants are free of aluminum, parabens, phthalates, artificial fragrance, and more. Plus, I love their scents. I’m currently loving the Rose and Vanilla scent.

Cross stitching

My Peter Rabbit Cross stitch

It had been decades since I last did a cross stitch, but in March I made a Peter Rabbit for Easter. I like to have something monotonous to do in the evenings while I’m in front of the TV. I’ve never been the type of person to just sit still. Whether it’s a puzzle, paint by numbers, or cross stitch my hands are always moving.  And, I’ve officially started my pattern for July 4th! Can’t wait to share the final product with you!

J.Crew Factory Earrings

I’ve been in LOVE with these earring jackets from J.Crew! I wear them all the time…with casual outfits or to work.  Instead of my diamond studs, I’ve been opting for these cute jackets.

The Alienist

Bobby and I watched The Alienist on TNT. This psychological crime drama is a thriller! The first episode caught our attention and it’s been unpredictable the whole way. We loved the cast. Dakota Fanning, Daniel Brühl, and Luke Evens are a phenomenal trio. I would say this is Ms. Fannings best role to date. If you are looking for something new to watch, The Alienist is available On Demand.

  1. I think one of my favorite things is reading your blog.
    Becky told me to get emails and the print will be much better. 👏

  2. Hey Lauren!
    I totally agree about using natural beauty products… it’s pretty crazy what’s out there in the daily things we use. I read recently that a line of children’s makeup had to be removed from Justice stores (a Claire’s chain) because it contained asbestos! Terrible. Anyway, I wanted to share with you what I’ve been using the past several years that I love and is all-natural. It’s called Alvera All Natural Roll-On Deodorant Aloe & Almonds. It smells great and it holds up even in warm weather and stressful situations! I order it through Amazon. I recommend it!
    Also, I love the Peter Rabbit cross stitch, so cute! I grew up with those stories and even had a Peter Rabbit tea set.
    Hope you and Bobby are doing well! I really enjoy reading your posts!
