Things I'm Loving Right Now

Peet's Coffee, House Blend. A medium bodied coffee with a smooth rich taste. Next if I'm brave I'd like to try their French Roast.

I'm enjoying my new Peet's coffee in a French press. The experts say that this is a better way to enjoy a good cup of coffee. Very tasty. Last summer I was making cold brewed coffee the old fashioned way. Course ground coffee 1/3 cup into a mason jar, fill with 1 1/2 cups cold water & let brew over night. The next morning strain the brewed coffee to remove the coffee grounds. You end up with rich concentrated coffee that you can mix with creamer/or milk and sugar. This makes a wonderful iced coffee for the summer. I've read that you can do the cold brew in a French press. I'll have to give that a try next.

If you have a curvy figure you'll love these jeans from the Gap. They are so comfortable and for us short people they come in a 29inch inseam for a perfect fit.

Last but not least, these lime green Havaianas sandals. They're a perfect bright green for summer. I picked them up at Dick's Sporting Goods on the clearance rack for $4.95! Can't beat that price.

Lately I've been loving all citrus scents. There's just something about the the scents of lemon, lime and orange that brings about a happy feeling. Plus with summer just around the corner the two are perfect together. Makes me think about being at the beach with a fruity drink in hand.
Satsuma Home Fragrance Oil by The Body Shop is a wonderful way to fill your home with a clean energizing scent. I just wish they had a lime scent. Then I could mix it with their coconut or vanilla scent, mmmm I can just smell the goodness.

The Yankee Candle Company has some great summery scents. I've had the Vanilla Lime for awhile now and it's one of my top favorite scents.

I love product recommendations so fun! In the after noons I have been vanilla creamer, ice and the left-over morning coffee to make iced coffee. The french press sounds much classier! Lol xoxo
