2. this junco.junco {for enjoying a midday snack.}

3. these paperwhites.paperwhites {because, always.}

4. this thankful baby belly.belly shot {because, of course. made through these guys if you’re curious.}

5. these label-less bathroom supplies.bathroom {because some people have a beer to relax at the end of day, others remove labels.}

other things:
eat something good and feel good about it, too.
wanted: spring hat.
christine’s pitch perfect looks…perfect.

if money and james’s opinion didn’t matter, i’d wear this.

    I LOVE your bathroom container. What do you do for your skin regime?

      Thanks! My skin regime? Mostly this:

      You have some items in the cart (that look cosmetic) and I didn't know if they were for your face. I know you use that cute face brush but wasn't sure if you started using a cleanser. With all of the cold weather and heaters being on do you use something to moisturize your face?

      Hi there: The large white tub is Egyptian Magic, which I use liberally as an all-over moisturizer…face/arms/legs/belly, etc. The smaller tub is a calendula/olive oil blend made by a local CT company (a gift from my mom). The white pump bottle is a gentle cleanser from Nahla which I occasionally use, mostly because it smells so good! Hope that helps!

      It does, Thank you! I have been trying to find products that are natural. I will have to look them up. You have the best skin, hoping they work for mine. šŸ˜€ Stay warm and have a great day!

    I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one who removes the labels from things. So much packaging is just a rude assault on the eyes. (There are some beautiful exceptions, of course…)
    Best to you, -C

    i do like the bathroom container and would love to have something similar in my bathroom, but wonder how it works with all the moisture that might get on it. rust and all.
    i tend to remove labels from bottles, but never thought of doing it to bathroom products. it does look good, though.

    Hi Miss Erin,
    I rarely comment, but I stop here almost every day because you manage to create a beautifully curated blog with interesting content without pretentious ads and without posting just for the sake of posting. It's really a nice little corner on the internet!
    I wish you a calm transition to motherhood and all the best with your new family member, I hope you're feeling well. Plus, you will find your apartment, don't worry. I'm sending you lots of positive thoughts although it probably sounds like a weird and creepy thing to write in a blog comment šŸ˜€
    Best regards from Europe!

    How do you get super-sticky labels off? I despise sticky residue even more than ugly labels. Help!

    • Reply Connie February 14, 2014 at 3:51 am

      Make your own goo remover with coconut oil (look for a solid in a jar, not a bottle but it should be with the oils in the grocery store) and baking soda.

      Measure equal parts baking soda and coconut oil. Heat coconut oil in microwave for 20ā€“30 seconds to soften. Add the baking soda and mix.

      Pour mixture into jars while warm.

      Use by dipping a cloth or sponge into the jar and rubbing on the label. Try not to get too much water into the goo remover or it gets rather messy. It will still work, but dryer is easier.Sometimes waiting a bit helps but you shouldn't need to scrub and scrub.
