14 Things I Totally Love

valentines day sketch

What’s more loveable than the fact that I share my birthday with the day of romance? How bout sharing with you the 14 things that I absolutely love, inspired by the lovely Valentine’s Day itself.

Follow along with me, I think you’ll find some stuff you love too!

1. Chameleon Cold-Brew Coffee

I love the taste of Chameleon Cold-Brew Coffee. It’s seriously the best iced coffee, ever. You can find this tasty drink at the nearest Whole Foods, Sprouts, and Target. For an added twist, check out this yummy Peppermint Patty cocktails recipe!

  • 3 oz Chameleon’s Vanilla Cold-Brew Concentrate
  • 1.5 oz Peppermint patty infused vodka
  • Top with cocoa powder and garnish with a junior mint – yum!

2. Dior Addict Lip Maximizer


Well, the name is pretty self explanatory. I am totally addicted to Dior’s delicious lip plumper, and ladies, I’m sure you will be too! Pucker up because this gloss gives an instant shine and volumizing effect that’ll have your lips wondering how they ever lived without it.

3. When Dogs Snore

4. Beach Babe Texturizing Sea Salt Spray

It’s hard to find a balance between tasteful tousled curls and turning into an absolute frizz monster. That’s why this sea salt spray is my go-to, to keep my waves in check. Not your momma’s texturizing spray, this fun product transforms you from beach bum into beach babe with just a few sprays.

5. Sugar Free Dark Chocolates

Ok, I know what you’re thinking. “Ew! How can sugar-free anything taste good?” Surprisingly, these chocolate covered almonds are smooth, sensational and dangerously delicious!

6. Happy, Smiling Babies

I can’t think of anything more perfect. Happy babies are so cute, and their smiles are totally contagious. Talk about an instant mood booster!

7. Wine and Cheese Night with my Girls

8. Tacos

9. Hangout Time with My Nieces and Nephews

Of course I’m biased, but my nieces and nephews are the bomb. They remind me to laugh at myself, love life, and not take it so seriously. These kiddos are wise beyond their years and they always teach me something new about myself.

10. My Job

My job doesn’t feel like a job. I get to help people every day with their homeownership goals and financial faux pas, and I absolutely love doing it! Waking up and reading my clients’ success stories feels like pouring over the newest scintillating, juicy gossip from my favorite magazine.

11. My Clients

I could never be successful in business without my clients. Every day I’m given the opportunity to meet new people, and I’m lucky enough that many of them have turned into great friends.

12. Acoustic Covers

13. Craft Cocktails
