The Joy of Rediscovery

Lately, I've been finding joy in things I thought I was totally over. Here's a few rediscoveries that have brightened my recent days:

I can't remember the last time I ate a Twix. It's never been on my must-have candy list. Until last week, that is. Someone gave me one (what was she thinking! Do I look like I need a candy bar right now?) So in addition to giving a fat girl a candy bar this person also provided me with my newest pregnancy craving.

Little Voice, Sara Bareilles
Love Song has been over-used in many a chick-flick movie trailer, it's true.
But I forgot how good the rest of the album is.

I went through a navy eyeliner phase a while back. The other morning, I misplaced my traditional brown eyeliner so I reached for the navy. I forgot how much I like it. It gives a bit of a grunge 80's vibe, without evoking thoughts of leg warmers* and side ponytails.

*Nothing against leg warmers, however. I pulled out an old pair a few months back (yes, I still have leg warmers in my closet) and they're the only thing to help ward off those awesome night time pregnancy leg cramps.
I have crazy-sensitive ears; so I don't wear earrings all that often. Not to mention I'm always losing them. But recently I found my leopard hearts, and remembered how much I love them. Just the perfect mix of tough and sweet.

Oh, and if you're in the mood to rediscover the candy of your childhood, hop over to They sell goody boxes by the decade...perfect for Halloween, or your own personal candy stash. Have a great Wednesday! xo

Sara Bareilles's album Little Voice is great, i can't find any songs in it which i didn't like at all!

Twix are SO good... sometimes my husband will snag some of the mini chocolatey bars from his work for me at the end of the day... lately I have been reminded how good Twix, Whoppers and Milky Way are! OMG - TOO good!

I recently rediscovered how much I love Snickers. Now I go crazy whenever they are on sale at the store 2/$1.00. Lol.

Love those leopard stud earrings!

Oh, I love Twix! They used to be my favorite but I haven't had them forever--may need to pick one up on the way home:) And I

Ice cream Twix was my pregnancy thing. Even better. Have you tried it?

A long time ago (it looks like centuries now) i liked "Twist". The last thing that allowed was a a 'huesito', i dont know if they are selled there but here in Spain are very common and they are delicious
By the way, I loved the earrings and I enjoy the songs of Sara Bareilles, I like Bottle it up
