Like so many of us, I jumped on the Marie Kondo bandwagon this month. I. LOVE. Organizing! And what better time to go all in than in January?
I happened to be up north longer than usual this year and it was so ridiculously cold there that I only ventured out when absolutely necessary. In my down time, I started my own version of the KonMarie method and decided to start going through all of our books. I am proud to say that I found 140 books that no longer "sparked joy" for me and it felt so uplifting to let go and donate them. Among my books, I found this little treasure that I made during an art day about ten years ago with a couple of my besties.
It was fun to look through it again but then I took a few photos of it, thanked it, and moved on. So what are some of my favorite things right now? Not the big things but the little day to day things. It was an easy list to pull together and I do like the idea of making it a regular feature here on Be Colorful Coastal.
You know how this works. Just click on the highlighted links, some of which are Amazon affiliated links, to discover more about each of these loves that you might not know about yet...
So what are my Latest Loves for January? Well, I am obsessed with this Revlon Volumizing Hairdryer/brush. I have fine thin hair and this definitely gives me more volume. It must be a popular item. I bought my first one from Ulta in December and liked it so much that I decided to buy one for Florida and I had to wait a week before it was back in stock.
While looking for Christmas gifts, I found this clothing site. All of their items are so stylish and fresh looking and a lot of them are exclusive to this site. I especially love their scarves.
How pretty is this handpainted pillow? I really want to try making this.
You can find the tutorial here.
I bought this toy for Crew and it has been a huge hit. Ages 4-12.
This final Latest Love was a gift from my daughter. Thank you, Liz. Because I go back and forth between Iowa and Florida almost monthly, it was hard, no, impossible to stay on schedule with manicures. This LED/UV Nail Lamp allows me to do a lasting manicure myself at home which saves me time and $$$. I've tried it with various brands of gel polishes that I already had and the results have been long lasting and fantastic.
I think these Latest Loves posts will be a fun additional feature here on the blog. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you found something new and tempting.
