What I'm Loving Lately

* Sally Hansen "Complete Salon Manicure" nail polishes. I bought this nail polish (in the shade shown) at Target the other day on a whim, and it's my new favorite brand! I've been trying not to get manicures or pedicures lately, but it seemed like no matter what quality of polish I was using, I couldn't get my nails to look good. This polish goes on smoothly, dries in a flash, and looks great. The brush is also a little wider than most, making it easier to cover the nail in less strokes. I'll definitely be buying more colors!

* Anything and everything pumpkin. (I doubt this needs any explanation.)

* The new Mumford and Sons album. If you don't know who Mumford and Sons are, you are missing out.

* The new snack I came up with a few weeks ago: Greek yogurt mixed with a spoonful of all-natural strawberry preserves, as a dip for apple slices. It's seriously amazing.

* Yoga arm balances. I managed to get into the one pictured below (scissor-legs side crow) last week, although of course it is still going to need some perfecting.

* My philosophy class. I honestly never expected to enjoy philosophy, but thanks to a very unique professor (he is hilarious), it is the highlight of my class days. 

* The return of all my favorite fall TV shows.


  1. I am super impressed you can do arm balances. I have this pathological fear of being upside down so I've never tried them. (I don't even like downward dog, but I push through for that since it's, you know, pretty basic.)

    Nail polish! I've got some fun fall nail polish headed my way and I am SO excited!

    And yay for fall TV! :) I love it!

    1. I actually don't like being upside down either--my teacher keeps pushing me to try a handstand but I keep telling her I'm not ready. I don't think my shoulders are strong enough yet, which makes me deathly afraid of collapsing onto my neck and paralyzing myself. =P But all the other arm balances don't require being upside down which is why I like them better. ;) The trick is to squeeze your elbows and keep your head up!
