monday – 5 things i <3

rubber player in blue

rubber player in blue

i know, i know…i posted a nixon watch last week–but the rubber player is a must. for dudes or the ladies. the player has been a staple in the men’s nixon watch line for YEARS (and the small player in the female watch line)…but when they came out with this special limited edition 4×4 watch (1 color per month over 4 months…only in select core shops) i knew i really wanted one :). for those who can’t get it…the time teller is an awesome back up second choice too!

fix + by MAC

now, i am not a girl who normally wears make-up–period! but when it came to getting married, i knew i wanted to do a little something to feel pretty and look different. thus, i went down to cherry creek to the local MAC store and let them make me over. after many phases of wiping off whatever they put on-i discovered FIX +. it’s a face mist that’s refreshing, relaxing, and full of vitamins and minerals. a staple in anyone’s collection–make up wearers and bare naturals alike.

my scoooooter!

my scoooooter!

mmm :) my scooter, it makes me so happy! i love riding it, i love the color, i love the strawberry scented engine oil i use, i love it all! probably THE BEST purchase i’ve ever made, i picked up this bad boy about a year and a half ago. for just over $2k and $60/year in insurance, $5/3 years for registration, and less than $5/month in gas…it’s been a life saver & cost efficient cost when it comes to transportation. not to mention the best perk—FREE SIDEWALK PARKING downtown! a def must in everyone’s quiver.

along with not being a big make-up person, i’m not a huge scent person either…but every year just before my birthday I treat myself to a new scent. [of which i normally actually wear about 10x a year] sometimes it’s expensive, sometimes not–most often I find it in whatever boutique shop I wind up buying my birthday dinner dress in…but this year it came from U.O. and was cheap! the ginger lily fragrence is so fresh, clean, and romantic. i LOVE rolling it next to my ears for when john goes in to give me neck kisses. xo! [& it’s on sale right now!]

shabu shabu!

shabu shabu!

mmmm…shabu shabu. james+jess turned johnny and i onto shabu shabu just a few months back and i’m blown away that i’d never been to the spot in aurora prior! what i like to call the japanese version of fondue—shabu shabu uses a hot pot w/ water & spices…vegetables & thinly sliced meat, and ponzu and sesame dipping sauces. once you’ve cooked all your meat & vegetables…you pour your leftover broth over steam white rice and eat the rest as soup—it’s to.die.for! yum!! j’shabu in aurora is delicious and fun alternative to your normal dining experience.
