The Marble Collector By: Cecelia Ahern

Favorite Book This Month: The Marble Collector. This was a great month for books for me and it was really hard to choose a favorite. It’s completely possible that this ended up being my favorite because it was the last one that I read. However, it has been the one that, even though I started a new book, I’ve still been thinking about it. I love Cecelia Ahern and I think this is just another solid showing of her talent as a story teller. 


Skyn Iceland Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels

I don’t think I have repeated an item in my favorites as I typically like to highlight new products I’ve been loving, but these have been such a savior. Not only have they been great after the (multiple) plane rides I’ve been going on, but they are also wonderful for when you don’t feel well. The few times that I’ve found myself starting to come down with something my eyes have been getting itchy and puffy. I put these on and they immediately make me feel better. Since it’s still cold and flu season I really wanted to share that. I also think they’ll be great come spring for those that have seasonal allergies. I typically purchase mine through Birchbox using points that I have, but you can also buy them at Ulta.  


Guinness Sweatshirt

I purchased a sweatshirt at the Guinness factory when my husband and I went and it is the most comfortable thing I currently own. I have been wearing it pretty much nonstop when I’m not at work. I also love that not only is it comfortable, but it has memories from my honeymoon.

Columbia Coat

This coat has been a lifesaver this winter! It is the pefect weight and really keeps me warm and dry. The only issue I have is sometimes the zipper can be a bit finicky. Buying this coat was the best decision I made this winter. Not only is it warm, but it is easy to move in and the color is unique. This will definitely be useful through the next couple of Chicago winters.



After having an afternoon tea in England, I became obsessed. I’ve always enjoyed tea, but for some reason that sparked a new passion for tea in me. I purchased the David’s Tea starter pack and have been really enjoying trying the new teas and finding new ones I love. My current favorite is the coffee pu-reh.

Jessica Jones

I love superheroes. I watch all three superhero shows on the CW and I always see the movies. However, for some reason, I was wary of Jessica Jones. When my husband and I got back from a trip recently we decided to give it a try and I am hooked! It is so good that we ended up finishing it in less than a week!
