{things making me happy today}

I've had a stressful couple of weeks and I'm surrounding myself with things that only make me happy. Here are a few of my faves!


Starbucks Straws - Summer Collection
I'm so in love with these straws, really I feel like using these make my water taste better

Studio C Laptop Cover - I purchased this a few weeks ago and I smile each time I reach for my laptop.  So much color - so much fun! (and it's almost 50% off at Best Buy)

If you have not had this tea, you much try it - I think I've drank a 2 gallon in the last 2 days.  So yummy.  

I still must work, right?  And right now I'm in love with Levenger Dotted Paper!  I use this for my corporate job and I find myself taking better notes and staying a bit more organized.  It's just a preference, sometimes I want to write small - other times larger.  I don't feel limited with dots and my writing is still perfectly in line.

tisa's favoriate things: Day 19

{kitchen redesign}

we are thinking of change the decor in our kitchen.  the counter tops and adding new tile to the back splash.  I'm wanting to keep the appliances, cabinets, counter tops and floor modern.  but I want to decorate with all things vintage. I think it might all work.  these are the items I'm looking at.

mason jar soap dispenser

subway tile

vintage scale - I think adding kitchen towels will make this perfect, right next to the kitchen sink.

tea towels

decorating with vintage muffin tins, this is an amazing picture from the songbird blog.  Love this.


Light fixtures...so cleaver. Photo from the intriguerie blog

{Beauty supplies}

I wanted to share items that I use every day.  I'm no fashion or make-up expert, I'm just sharing what I like.  

                         They're Real Mascara                                                                                                                        Buxom Amplified Lash Mascara
I love these both and I alternate when I purchase them.  this month I'm buxom, but the last three months I used they're real.

I have had a hard time with acne since high school.  I recently switched to this after receiving a sample and it works pretty well.  
mary kay eye makeup remover...the rest thing EVER!  I love this stuff.





I do currently use mac foundation and powder


carmex this is one of my all time faves.  I have carmex at my desk, one in my car, one in my purse and another one in my running basket near the front door.  

have a great day!

coffee

this is my all-time favorite coffee EVER!  hands down.  
it's only available in January, that is the only thing that sucks about this coffee.
It has hints of citrusy brightness and a lingering cocoa finish…ahhhhh, the best thing ever!

I stock up on this but I do run out - so for the rest of the year I do drink Starbucks Pike Place everyday
