1. Schoolhouse Electric
Oh gosh, I want to buy all the things. It’s all obnoxiously expensive. Like, seriously, $40 for a fancy extension cord? But I love the style and all the ideas. Expect to see a lot of Schoolhouse Electric inspired things in the new house.
2. China Glaze In the Lime Light
I went into Sally’s the other day to get some hair stuff (see #3) and I had decided before I went in I wasn’t even going to look at nail polish. Too bad this color was on an end cap and called out to me. I heard it singing my name. It said, “Cass. CASS. I’m such a pretty shade of green. Don’t you want me? You totally want me.” And I did. It reminds me of one of the colors of Gak. Who remembers Gak? (Edit: OH MY GOSH. Gak is back!)
3. ApHogee Hair Treatment
If you follow me on Twitter, you know that I totally fried my hair this weekend. I was trying to DIY my color streaks and accidentally bleached the beejeebus out of one of my streaks. So I headed to Sally’s to grab some protein masks and deep conditioning treatments to fix my mistake and I grabbed this two-step treatment. It was amazing. It took my fried, breaking hair back to totally normal. Now I just have to wait a few weeks to dye over the bleach, but it’s better than having to get a pixie cut because of my home salon blunder. I will be buying lots of this stuff so I can do this treatment every other month or so.
4. My tripod
Well, actually, it’s Babyface’s tripod, but I’ve commandeered it. I’ve resisted using a tripod to shoot my food for years, but now that we’re in a house that is nestled in a wooded area, it means there is hardly ever enough light to shoot freehand. And ever since I started shooting with a tripod (and handheld shutter release) my photos have gotten so much sharper and nicer looking. Tripod, for the win.
5. Blue Bloods
I’ve read a lot of Young Adult books, but for some reason, I’ve always been hesitant to read this series. Maybe I’ve hit my vampire novel limit or maybe I just don’t trust a book you can find in the Walmart check-out lane, but I finally sunk my teeth in (HA. PUNNY) because it was one of the only Kindle books available for download from my library. And guess what? Loved it! I mean, I’m not getting any smarter from it or anything, but it was a fun read. It’s like Gossip Girl meets vampire novel. Which is pretty much perfect. I’m such a 12-year-old.
