A Few of My Favorite Things

Since I recently shared some of my favorite food things, I thought it was time for some more Favorite Things.  In no particular order...

I usually like to buy a new (cheap) bag a couple of times a year, rather than one good handbag, because I think it's more fun to change it up.  Funny enough, I bought a relatively cheap one (this Tyler Rodan one from Macy's) over a year ago and ran it into the ground.  I'd still keep it, but the faux leather is literally ripping to shreds.  So, I thought that maybe it was time for me to buy an expensive grown up bag.  However, in my search for the perfect bag, none of the pricey ones were to my liking!  I ended up coming across Sole Society, which I'd never heard of before and I LOVE everything on the site!  I had a hard time choosing, there were so many cute bags - all for less than $50.  

I went with the Raleigh and am really impressed with the quality
I think you need a referral to shop the site, so here's mine if you wanna get rid of some disposable income.  I'm starting to eyeball some cute jewelry now that I'm getting all kinds of discount emails after signing up.  Another plus?  It's an Ebates affiliated site, and if you're not doing Ebates (what!?) sign up now

I posted this to Instagram the other day, but it bears repeating: these Oiselle cable knit babies are first arm warmer purchase EVER (since a pair was included in my team kit nearly 3yrs ago).  They are the bees knees - even for those who are genetically predisposed to having 'guns.' 
To beef up my fall wardrobe, I decided to try a pair of corduroy pants and OMIGOD.  Why have I not worn a pair of corduroy pants in probably 30 years!?  They are sooooo comfy!  My perfect fitting jeans happen to be Kut from the Kloth Diana fit, and they have a rainbow of lovely cords to choose from at Nordstrom.  Your mileage may vary, but I highly recommend these pants. And, hey, Nordies is also affiliated with Ebates.
I shared this on Twitter and Facebook recently, but I just can't get enough of this Key and Peele video on misunderstood texts!
And last, but not least, I finally tuned in to the Serial podcast last week on my long run and it's so freaking fantastic OMGGGG. Another outstanding production from This American Life/WBEZ Chicago, it follows the story of an ostensibly solved murder...  It's absolutely spellbinding and I seriously thought of running a personal distance record last week just to get caught up on all the episodes.  I decided to only listen to the first two and save them for long run days only.  I'll be super sad when I'm all caught up!  


  1. Also loving "Serial"! I have one more episode before I am caught up....eeeeek!
