Welcome to things I’ve been obsessing over in January, edition one million.

Theo Coffee and Cream Chocolate Bar. WHAAAAT. My cousin told me about this stuff and I only found it at Whole Foods last week but it easily makes it in these faves. It’s so ridiculously delicious. I’m tryyyyying to stick to one square a night or every other. (yeah right.)

Shonda Rhimes Year of Yes. GAH. This book was so good but also, completely fascinating to me. If you’re into inspirational reading and self-help of sorts, you’ll probably love it.

Adele’s “When We Were Young.” Not to be totally cliche, but this song kills me. I don’t always fall fast for Adele songs and tend to find them later. This one just… ugh… it’s like the equivalent to reading a beachy love story for me. I get chills, feel all the feels, and it seems FAMILIAR. So weird.

Voluspa candle in Suede Blanc. This is one of those scents that definitely smells like cologne, but almost a wintery cologne. It makes our entire house smell incredible and warm without being Christmasy.

MY BULLET JOURNAL! I realize I sound like such a broken record mentioning this AGAIN but I swear, it has helped my productivity so much. And I’ve said it before but mine is not fancy whatsoever. I just use a Leuchtturm notebook and my own chicken scratch. No doodling or stickers – I wish I had time to add in fun stuff, but I totally don’t.

Califia Farms Better Half Creamer. This is definitely the BEST coconut milk creamer I have tried (and beats just putting canned coconut milk in your coffee). So good!

Beats Pill in White. Eddie bought me this for Christmas (I had previously bought him one for Christmas years ago, and he still uses it everyday) and I absolutely LOVE it. We don’t have any type of stereo and I was sick of sticking my phone in a coffee mug while listening to podcasts and music. I use it constantly.

Noosa Yogurt in Blood Orange. I love Noosa to begin with but the blood orange is off the charts. I found mine at Target!

Beards Brush paintings – this original art. It’s so cool. And local! My brother bought everyone in our family paintings for Christmas (you can see Max and me here!) and they are just super cool. So bright and fun.

Evolution Fresh Juice in Essential Vegetable. I KNOW! Me! Eddie has been really into juices (odd for him) and grabbing us one on the weekends. This is my current pick.

Pretty much everything in the Alala activewear line. I love all of this. I have this scarf, vest and some leggings (all bday and Christmas gifts from November on) and am obsessed. I really want the silver metallic pieces but um, totally don’t need that. Nor would it be flattering. But everything is super cool and doesn’t look like all clothing from lululemon.

But! Speaking of that. My lululemon falling freely neck warmer. This is a sweater-like scarf that zips up the center and I adore it! Unfortunately it’s sold out, but I had to mention it in case it gets restocked or something or they have it next year.

Trader Joe’s Sour Gummies. Cannot stop eating these. It’s horrible. They are fantastic if you like citrus.

Finally, my Samsung nx300 camera. I’ve mentioned it before but since the new year (and my resolutions) I’ve been using it nonstop! I keep it in my car or bag and have used it to capture everything of Max I can. I love it so so much.
