na, na, na, sheets of Egyptian cotton



Pretty movies such as this. Gingerbread cocoa that makes me say “mmm” after every sip. I received a cocoa box for Christmas and it holds a dozen yummy flavors. Bubble baths of strawberry soap that smells of Lipsmackers chapstick. Listening to the Harry Potter soundtrack, the Lumos! song specifically, while writing- you’d never know how inspiring it can be. I imagine I'm in a magical land far, far away. Rediscovering books I read as a child, such as 100 Dresses, From the Mixed Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler and The Boxcar Children. Band of Brothers marathons, no matter how much it may make me cry. Finding (and purchasing) vinyl records at antique stores to add to my collection. I only wish I'd had the Dean Martin Christmas collection a few weeks earlier. Madre’s freshly made salsa dressing with homemade tamales. Knowing school doesn't start until the 19th, though I know it will be here sooner than soon. These are just a few of my favorite things at the moment. ★

  1. Lovely images... and I love your favorite things at the moment. It's fun to rediscover things from your childhood and find that they still interest you like your old books. So you are collecting vinyl records, that's awesome. :-)

  14. Oh, I love that movie :/ I can't believe Brittany Murphy is gone. It sucks. But all of the different types of coca sound delicious! And oh my goodness, the Harry Potter soundtrack is quite fantastic. Lucky you don't have to go back to school til the 19th! Enjoy the remainder of your break!

  17. What movie is this? I don't think I've seen it before, but these stills make me want to so badly!

    Seems like you're having a wondrous time lately. I wish I could join you in your magical land, it sounds so wonderful! And doesn't the HP soundtrack evoke the most incredible dreams? Mhmm, I think I might listen to it while I drift to Sandman's Cove tonight...

  23. Great list of favourite things. Rediscovering childhood books is so much fun, but also a little bit sad. WE'RE ALL GROWING UP SO FAST.

    Oh, and Uptown Girls was definitely my favourite movie, back when I was a child!

    Thanks so much for stopping by!

  24. What a marvelous and inspiring post! I loved Uptown Girls (I was a nanny too so I totally can identify!) and I love love children's books, 100 Dresses and Mixed Up Files being among my favorites.

    And Gingerbread cocoa sounds divine. Yum!
