Tuesday Top 10: Sept 2020
That’s right- I’m bringing it back. Tuesday Top 10! Where I share all of the things I’ve been loving lately. Maybe it’s snacks, shows, books, and in this month’s case- even candles and shoes. Anything goes! (*This post contains affiliate links to help link you to some of the things I mention, in case you’re wanting to snag some of my favorites for yourself.)
You know I can’t do a Top 10 post without sharing some books I’ve been loving. This month there have been a bunch- check out my Spooky Books for Fall post from yesterday if you want some scary picks. But, I also loved our Book Club pick The Friendship List if you want a fun friendship story. I will say the love scenes in this book are spicy and may make you blush, but otherwise I really liked following the lives of 2 flawed best friends who are both trying to help each other out of their funks.
And for Non Fiction- I have been highlighting pretty much the entirety of Awakening Wonder: Opening Your Child’s Heart to the Beauty of Learning by Sally Clarkson. Sally is one of my favorite authors with her insights into motherhood and being a Christian and so many other things. This book is beautiful and insightful and a definite must read if you’re educating your children at home, especially. I’ll definitely share a full review in the future!
Raise your hand if your feet hurt all the time! Just me? I actually ended up googling “the most comfortable shoes for women” and these New Balance Nergize sneakers popped up (and were affordable!). I went to my local Famous Footwear outlet and snagged an even better deal. Mine are a navy/pink pair that I can’t find to link for you- but this link has tons of options. NOTE- size up half a size if you purchase a pair, because they do run a little small. But, they are seriously so comfortable and I LOVE how light and low profile they are. Thinking about snagging some more pairs to match my other outfits, because I really liked them that much!
Fall is basically here and I’ve been filling my house with ALL the pumpkin flavored things. As well as all the Fall scented things. This Spun Pumpkin Sugar candle smells AMAZING and it’s super cheap! I can’t find the 3 wick one online, which I bought (at only $3.33 in store!) but I linked the jar candle for you. Definitely go see if you can find it in store and stock up! Now that I see how low the online stock is, I’ll definitely be picking some more up next time I run into the store.
I had to share the new light fixture that I got Mikey to hang up above our kitchen island. I HATED the light that was up there before (I should have taken a before pic) and told him that it was a deal breaker to buy this house if he didn’t change it. Dramatic much? But, I’m in love with how the new one turned out- peep the progress on my IG! I’ll do a little home tour ASAP to share what we’ve gotten done at the new house so far.
Snacks! I always try to include a snack, and this one has been on repeat since we moved to Little Rock. Have you ever tried Voodoo Chips? We can’t get enough! I have literally gone through at least 20 bags since we moved here. It’s definitely contributed to my quarantine weight gain…but I cannot help myself! They’re kinda a mix of salt and vinegar and barbecue and I don’t know what else, but once you start eating them, you can’t stop.
And last but not least- my Hubby realized that we had access to the HBO Max app and my life has been forever changed. Remember how Netflix removed our beloved FRIENDS? Guess what? If you have this app you can watch it again! I have been binging it ever since and it will be on repeat from here on out…
Normally I’d also include a beauty product, but since I’m rocking some really cute mask-ne and not leaving the house much, my poor beauty products are feeling a little neglected.
So, maybe that wasn’t quite 10 things, but I wanted to update y’all (I can use that term un-ironically now that I’m officially a southerner!) on all the things I’ve been loving lately. As always, leave me a comment and tell me what you’ve been addicted to! What’s your Top 10 this week?
