Current Loves.

Since I haven't been blogging much recently, I haven't had a chance to talk about what I'm loving lately!

First up are the Myron Bolitar books by Harlan Coben.  Since I finished reading all of Michael Connelly's books last year, I've been wanting to find another author/character to fall in love with.  And I definitely have found that with these books!  They're almost nothing like Michael Connelly's books other than they're mysteries.  But I love the characters and the writing by Harlan Coben.  The main character in these books is Myron Bolitar, a sports agent with a quick wit.  They're hilarious books while also suspenseful and intriguing.  I just finished up #3 in the series, Fade Away, and I didn't know who the bad guy was until right before it was revealed-- the sign of a great mystery!  I can't wait to read all the rest.

I'm also loving this Springtime Creamy Pesto Pasta recipe from the blog Against All Grain.  It's 100% paleo, grain-free, dairy-free, and completely delicious!  I was a little nervous about it as I was making it, but I couldn't believe how good it turned out.  It was a little bit of work, but I think it was very much worth it.  If you're looking for some delicious paleo (or grain-free or dairy-free) receipes, her blog and cookbook are a gold mine!

And speaking of delicious paleo recipes... these Fluffy Little Almond Flour Pancakes from The Nourishing Home are quickly becoming one of my favorites.  I've made them twice now, and they're AMAZING.  The key to getting them super fluffy is the blender!  Who knew??

I've found the perfect spring/summer nail color! It's Essie Bachelorette Bash, a beautiful fuchsia pink.  LOVE.

I've never been one to wear anything super fancy on my lips.  Some chapstick or lipgloss and I'm set.  But I'm starting to play a little bit more, and so I bought the MAC Pro Longwear Lip Pencil in Staunchly Stylish the other week.  And I must say that I'm loving it.  It's a great color-- just a little darker than my normal lip color, and it LASTS.  I've been pairing it with Buxom Full-On Lip Polish in Dani (to cool the tone down a bit), and it's perfect!

And finally, I'm loving the Farewell to Cristina on Grey's Anatomy.  Cristina has always been my favorite character, and while I'm sad to see her go, I love the way they're finishing her story.  I never liked her with Owen, so I'm glad that that roller coaster is going to end.


  1. I haven't watched the final episode (the farewell to Christina) but I'm definitely liking how it's ending with her. I also didn't like her with Owen at all. I'll miss her character though!

  2. I've added the first in the Haran Coben series on my goodreads for when I'm done with school and have access to a public library again!
