Recent Obsessions #14

It’s been FOR-EV-ER since I’ve done one of these posts! Here are some things I’ve been loving over the last several months.

Flipp App. This has been a total lifesaver for budgeting on maternity leave and I check before I buy almost anything to see where I can find the best deal. I love typing in my grocery list too. So handy!

Bamboo Drive Cloth Diapers. Bamboo Drive generously sent me some of their beautiful cloth diapers to try a couple of of months ago. Up until this point I had only tried Planet Baby’s pocket diapers (which we still love) but I was seriously wowed by Bamboo Drive’s diapers, particularly the all-in-ones. They are so soft and comfy, the prints are great and the all-in-one is seriously easy to care for. Bamboo Drive is a Canadian company and both the pricing and customer service are amazing. I will be investing in a set of their newborn all-in-one diapers for our next child. Highly recommend!

Primula Cold Brew Maker. I’m an iced coffee all year round kind of gal and I always struggle this time of year drinking hot from our Keurig. We found this cold brew maker at London Drugs recently and we love it! It does require planning ahead but it’s inexpensive, easy to use and I love having cold brew on hand.

Skip Hop Chelsea Diaper Bag. I only got this “real” diaper bag a few months ago. Initially I had just bought a small gym duffel that I thought would work fine but it quickly became a black hole without proper storage and it was falling apart by the new year. Winners always has a great selection of Skip Hop bags and as soon as I saw this one I fell in love with it. It’s neutral but super stylish and the amount of storage is insane! The quality is amazing and it makes my life way easier.

The Pretty Dish Cookbook. I’ve followed Jessica forever, even before food blogs were a thing. Her second book is even better than her first and I’ve been cooking out of it constantly. Our favorites so far: the Meatball Salad, Tropical Overnight Oats, Cobbler Bars, Barbecue Bourbon Burgers and the Green Goddess Chicken Salad.

Booster Juice. This is an old love, but their new menu has us there constantly these days. The new acai bowl is amazing and I’ve also tried and liked Wildberry Basil, Banango and Nuttin Better.

Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush. Another old love but I’ve finally found my dream shade. It’s Paaarty, which I initially discovered in my Sephora birthday gift. I was thrilled when I saw they made it available to purchase. These blushes are the BEST. The compacts last for literally years with daily wear, never break, and this shade is the perfect glow-y neutral.

L’Oreal Lash Paradise Mascara. After hearing a million recommendations for this mascara and hearing people compare it to Tarte’s “Better Than Sex”, I bit the bullet. This mascara is really, really good. It definitely adds length and volume, I love the brush and the wear is great with zero flakes or smudges.

Thirty-One Large Utility Tote. I’ve heard people rave about these for years and finally just got a couple of my own. I am in LOVE. These totes are awesome for groceries and odds and ends on road trips, especially those last minute small items we always forget. I love that they store flat too.
