What I’m Loving Lately

Here are some things on my radar lately I would love to share with you, from food and drink to books and films/shows among other things.

Films/Shows

Mission Of Honor -a movie  based on real-life events.  Polish fighter pilots fight with the British RAF to take on Nazis, but not without resistance and language barriers.  Great movie!

Taken– the series (NBC) but also streaming, is based on a former green beret and CIA operative trying to avenge the murder of his sister.  Lots of action and intrigue!!

Big Little Lies-the series (HBO).  If you haven’t jumped on this train (or train wreck, I should say), you must.  It has a lot of drama, betrayal, and great tunes!! And, I never thought I could dislike Meryl Streep’s character more!

Books

fullsizeoutput_42b5.jpegBefore We Were Yours-Two stories, one present-day and one depression-era, tell of a young lady seeking her way in life and a tragic tale of kidnapping based on real-life events. Without giving it away, the two tales merge to reveal a mystery solved.

Where’d You Go, Bernadette?-Laugh-out-loud humor of a brilliant woman left to her own demise in Seattle, a place of her bane existence.  Told through her daughter’s eyes, she uses a series of emails, texts, and conversations to explain the disappearance of her mother.  I can’t wait for the movie to come out FRIDAY!!

Food/Drink

Inspiralized & Beyond Cookbook-Delving into more plant-based recipes with this one.  She can take a spiralizer and basically do magic for your dinner table!

IMG_5791.JPGIMG_5792.JPGD’Vash Date Nectar-I’ve discovered this new sweetener, 25% less sugar than honey.  I’ve been using it in smoothies instead of honey.  I am going to try them in my energy bites next.fullsizeoutput_42b2California Roots Wine-Target’s own line of wines in every flavor.  My favorite is Sauvignon Blanc. They are all $5.  Great for that dinner party of 50.  Just pour into a carafe, and your guests will never know!

First Leaf Wines-a monthly wine subscription coming straight to your door. You take a quiz and tell them your likes and dislikes.  They will pick out some great ones for you!  They are all discounted and reasonable.  You are able to pause or stop your subscription at anytime.

Health

fullsizeoutput_42a2.jpegCare/Of Vitamins and Supplements-Just like the wine subscription above, you take a quiz about your health concerns.  They send you individualized packets with all the vitamins your body seems to need every month.  They also sell supplements, like these vanilla-flavored protein packets I put into my smoothies.

Blue-emu Oil-For those aches and pains from strenuous workouts or just overuse, this is great to rub on affected areas.  It reduces pain without the harsh smells.

Beauty

Tenoverten Nail Products-non-toxic and cruelty-free nail products that actually work, finally!!  Goodbye chemicals!!!

Burt’s Bees 100% Natural Lip Gloss-moisturizing and available in 12 shades!!! Did I say affordable, too?

Bible Verse

“I lie down and sleep; I wake again, because the LORD sustains me.” -Psalm 3:5

 

So that about sums it up!  What are you loving lately?  Do you think there will be a Season 3 of Big Little Lies???

Toodle-oo,

Melanie
