Hi all! I hope you’re having a very nice Saturday. Down here in Houston, it’s a beautiful, sunny day, so we’re enjoying open windows and nowhere to go : )
I’ll be back tomorrow with the 4th Sharp-Dressed Lady, but for today I thought’d I share some Mancktastic things I’ve enjoyed this week!
These new super-fast, fancy curlers from Remington haven’t added much time to my morning routine, but have definitely brightened my days. They heat up in just 2 minutes and set a curl in 5 minutes, even in my thick hair! I’ve really enjoyed having nice hair this week; for such a minimal effort, they really are great results especially for such an inexpensive product. Highly recommended!
I’ve always loved the music of Nickel Creek, but I didn’t realize til this week that Chris Thile, mandolin player of the now-defunct band, was the recipient of a MacArthur Genius grant! He’s an amazingly talented mandolin player, as well as singer, who’s been involved in many musical projects, including Punch Brothers. This week I couldn’t stop listening to “This Girl” by this group!
For months, I’ve lusted after this simple bangle from Kate Spade:
I’d promised it to myself if I got the work opportunity I talked about a while back, but I gave up on the bracelet when the work thing didn’t work out. Well, I found it for a bargain on Ebay, so I went ahead and splurged on it for myself this week.
I love the green and gold (SJ’s color is green and my wedding ring is gold), plus the lightly optimistic engraving on the interior.
In weird synchronisity, I just found out I might have a chance to help out more around school the upcoming year since we have a coach shortage! (Boo shortage, yay for getting to help)
Now, don’t think I’m a boozehound, but I’ve found my most favorite drink! One of my birthday gifts from my parents was the most delicious bourbon cream liqueur from a distillery in Butte, MT: Orphan Girl.
It’s creamy, not too alcoholic tasting, and absolutely perfect enjoyed slowly, on the rocks, with a nice book : )
And that’s this random Saturday’s edition of That’s Mancktastic! Hope you enjoy some of these as well : )
