What I am Loving...

Life is full of lots of lovely things, and I thought I would share some of my personal favorites of late.

I have extremely dry and sensitive-natural-red-head skin.  I don't like to spend money on frivolous things, but I am LOVING that I splurged on this moisturizer. It has been the highlight of winter for my face. It has truly made all the difference for my face to not feel as those I shrinked my skin three sizes in the shower. If you do not have super dry skin, I would imagine this might make your face feel as though you've applied mayonnaise or something similar.  Therefore, be sure you're sponge ready for some moistly goodness! I am loving Estee Lauder's Hydrationist.

I can't start a day without my Keurig.  I absolutely love Donut Shop regular k-cups. I take mine black and smooth!  A cup for the morning commute into the city, and another once the boys are fast asleep. Oddly enough, coffee gets my motor running in the morning and helps shut me down at night.  It's weird, I know.  I love it!

Who doesn't love Pandora?  I am loving my Amos Lee station.  It seems to fit perfectly with my evening coffee.

I'm also loving that in this moment, we are really enjoying the city.  As far as cities go, our's is pretty small-scale.  However, compared to where we've been, it seems sprawling.  We spent Saturday out as a little family of four enjoying a market, a deli, and stocking up on some organics.   Enjoying the city is special for us because we are space people. We like fields and farms.  We dream of horses and hay. We've been planning our little family farm for almost a decade. One day, I think it will really exist. But for this moment, we are here.  I want to remember our city days as special. So, we are loving the choice and the variety of metro living.

I'm really, and perhaps highest on my list, loving the Community Church we've been attending.  It is very far removed from anything we are accustomed to, but it seems  perfect for where we are in our faith journey. There is something so very beautiful in sharing faith with such a vast array of cultures and generations. It is people coming together in common bond and love. Shared faith is a beautiful thing. It takes me back to younger days when I roamed the world. I love it!

So there...some loves of late.  Some are frivolous, while others are quite essential. If you are so inclined, leave your blog link in the comments, and share a post on what you are loving!  I'd be happy to stop by your site and enjoy your loves!

PS One thing I am NOT loving is my perpetually, never-ending-dry-flaky-sandpaper lips!  If you know the perfect solution, I beg of you to share!!!

Yours Truly,
B Charmer


  1. I like Burt's Bees for my lips.

  2. Dude! Your blog exploded! LOL!

    I like Mary Kay's Satin Lips set for dry lips.

    I love my Keurig as well, although my cheapskate self uses regular coffee in it instead of buying the K-Cups. Anything by Green Mountain is fantastic. MMMMM. Dunkin' Donuts has some really good coffee too.

    I admit to loving Nexxus shampoo and conditioner. It does such lovely things for my hair. My cheapskate self is not happy with this development. Burts Bees has some good hair stuff too.

    1. I just started using Nexxus products as of Saturday, and I am IN LOVE! I know it is pricey, but I think it might be one of those "worth it" things. I'm thinking I might save a little actually from not having to buy truckloads of other product to tame the wild curls. I didn't know a shampoo and conditioner could do so much so quickly!
