A roundup of my current favorite products, links, and things from around the web! Check out the list and find some new things to try for yourself.
Last monthly favorites post of the year AND decade. Of course December was jam packed with the holidays, travel, and even a total SNAFU right at the end that almost exactly mirrored the way I started this year. But what would my life be if something wasn’t going wrong!? HA! 😉
But despite my trip to NYC for New Year’s being cancelled due to me getting the flu/food poisoning, the month of December was pretty great…as was 2019. As I said in a recent Instagram post, lots more high than lows this year. And that’s all someone can ask for, right?
Here are two longer form IG posts worth giving a read that sort of sum up my thoughts on the year…
So let’s get into the last Monthly Favorites post of the year and get ready to welcome in 2020.
KiteHill Everything Cream Cheese | You don’t need an everything bagel when you have this stuff! Great with cucumbers, on flax bread, in wraps and more.
Wegmans Himalayan Sea Salt Popcorn | The best packaged I’ve had and the cleanest ingredients too.
Wegmans Almond Milk Yogurt | Wegmans entered the plant-based yogurt game and this stuff is SUPER good. It’s very thick and creamy and the plain variety has no added sugar.
Freedom Bars | These are just like Larabars but a little bigger, a little firmer, and with more whole nuts which I LOVE.
Trader Joe’s Lentil & Spinach Salad | Roasted cauliflower, red peppers, red cabbage, pecans, apples, lentils, chickpeas, & spinach! I was buying so many of these I decided to just start making my own.
Archer Farms Raw Mixed Nuts Snack Bags | Cashews, hazelnuts, almonds, pistachios, and cashews…all raw with no added oils or salt. Perfect for travel or snacking on the go.
Almond Cookie Larabars | These taste like an anise cookie if you like those. I’ve only seen these at Target. (literally couldn’t even find a picture of these online because they are so limited!!)
To listen to
Been all about podcasts lately!! Here’s what I’ve been listening to…
Kid Quill Radio | I love Kid Quill’s music on its own but the ‘radio station’ that Spotify has with similar artists is just awesome.
Amine | Introduced to him from an interview I watched with Billie Eilish and he’s just so good and different.
The Beatles Anthology (the original recordings of songs with no edits…you hear a lot of background conversations going on between the guys which is just awesome! 🙂
Anything by the Party Pupils | If you love the artist, MAX, you will LOVE them!
Little Women | SO SO SO GOOD. Even if you’re not a fan of or aren’t familiar with the story, this is just a good move, plain and simple. The cast was perfect. So many of amazing artists in one movie! Also, can Timothee Chalamet be one of my favorites?! 😉
Marvelous Mrs. Maisel | Finally got around to starting this and it totally lives up to all the post! 🙂
The Report | This is about the 7000 page torture report that the Senate Investigation Committee ordered post 9-11. Very interesting and Adam Driver is amazing as always!
The Stanford Prison Experiment | A Netflix original movie about the actual Stanford Prison Experiment conducted in . If you took even one psychology class in college then I’m sure you’ve heard of this.
The Two Popes | The backstory how Pope Benedict stepped down as Pope and Pope Francis took his place. There’s a been a few articles contesting the factual accuracy of this movie, but Sir Anthony Hopkins and Jonathan Price play the two popes, so it’s definitely worth a watch.
YOU Season 2 | Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know what YOU is and that it’s totally addicting. Without spoiling anything, there will DEFINITELY be a 3rd season and I am PUMPED.
Don’t F*CK with Cats | V interesting…but fair warning (which I didn’t get!!) very disturbing animal abuse is shown.
Actors on Actors from Variety | Actors interview each other back and forth which I think is a really cool concept and set up.
