Hello beautiful people! Here's hoping you've recovered from your food coma by now and are enjoying some serious relaxation. In the spirit of the holidays, I wanted to share something fun and intimate with you.
The items on this list make my life more efficient, beautiful, and just plain delightful. I hope they make yours delightful too!
I couldn't live without my Longchamp Le Pliage tote bag. It's enormous (not to mention waterproof!) and the handles are just the right size, so it's perfect if you do a lot of traveling.
I gave up high heels over a year ago after having surgery on both feet. How? Frye boots. They're sexy, comfortable, and look good with everything.
As you might imagine, I do a lot of writing. Poppin notebooks are my favorite. If you ask me they're better than Moleskine, and you can't beat their gorgeous range of colors.
Also, Pilot G-2 07 pens are the best, hands down.
I keep my Llewellyn's Daily Planetary Guide with me at all times. Each day lists transits and Lady Luna's movements with exact times, and there's an ephemeris in the back.
I love my iPad Air. It's small enough to fit in my bag without being too heavy, and the screen is being enough that I can use it for astrology readings or writing when I'm out and about.
I use Astro.com for all my astrology readings. Their Extended Chart Options page is the best astrology software I've ever used.
Naturally, I read a lot of blogs. Bloglovin puts them into one feed, so I don't have to spend time going to each URL. It's revolutionary. (Psst! You can follow The Midheaven there too.)
I also use Evernote to organize all my research for blogs posts and future projects. It syncs to all your devices, so it's also handy for grocery lists and such. It's the ADHD person's dream.
I don't eat dairy or eggs, so Lara bars are a life saver when I need breakfast or a snack on the fly. Oreos are dairy free too, so they've quickly become my favorite dessert!
Voluspa candles smell unbelievably luxurious. Baltic Amber and Bella Sucre are my current favorites.
The Morgan Greer Tarot is my go-to deck. I love the bright colors and straightforward images. I also adore the Cosmic Tarot. If you look closely, you'll see little astrological symbols hidden on each card. If you're learning the astrology behind tarot, this deck is a great place to start!
Confession: I'm a bit obsessed with perfume. Right now I have Tom Ford Velvet Orchid in high rotation. It's warm, spicy, and very Scorpio.
After years of being platinum blonde, my hair needs lots of TLC. I love Organix hair care. Their Nourishing Coconut Milk Shampoo and Conditioner smell like cupcake frosting and leave your hair feeling weightless and soft. Also, the Renewing Morrocan Argan Oil is my secret weapon.
Ponds Cold Creamis my skincare regimen. All you need is a washcloth and this stuff to take off your makeup, cleanse, and moisturize. The fact that it smells like roses is just icing on the cake.
I've recently fallen in love with Maybelline Full N' Soft mascara. Full disclosure: I found this gem on Into the Gloss. It uses Vitamin E to soften the lashes instead of making them crunchy like other mascaras do.
There's no feeling better than playing a fresh set of guitar strings. I prefer Ernie Ball Super Slinky 9 gauge.
