Favorite Things Friday No. 01

Hello and happy Friday! I’m starting a new series called “Favorite Things Friday” where I simply share my favorite things of the week with you. Whether it’s a feeling, a thing, or an experience – my favorite “things” are not limited to just that – things! My goal is to create small moments of joy as well as possibly put you onto something new you’ll also enjoy.

With that, here is my first list of my five Favorite Things Friday.

1. CYMBIOTIKA Liposomal Vitamin C

I’ve been obsessed with these vitamin C packets since the first one I tried a couple of months ago. I know I definitely don’t get enough vitamin C so supplementing with these yummy packets is a little treat to my morning. 

2. The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City

I used to never be a reality show/trash tv girly but the world has shifted and I have come to find that I love the real housewives. I’m all caught up on the Salt Lake City gals and can’t wait to start tuning in live to watch the madness. I’ve never watched the other cities (yet) but I like Salt Lake for the look into Mormonism and the light it sheds. Who is tuning in next week? 

3. My Cat aka Salem aka my little boy!

I couldn’t make a favorites list without my cat and of course, he is going to be on my first favorites feature! He is the light of my life even when he screams at my at 6am just to let go play outside. He loves the outdoors, faucets, deli meats, and fuzzy blankets.

4. Oktoberfest

I’m Irish so St. Patrick’s Day is MY holiday but any “holiday” where it’s encouraged to drink copious amounts of beer is home to me. And it may just be on my mind because I am going to a fest tonight but in just a couple hours I’ll have my stein in hand and a big pretzel in the other and my world will be at peace even just for a few hours. 

5. The Samsung Portable Hard Drive

As a photographer, I can’t live without a portable hard drive. Over the years, I’ve collected many. and over those years – I’ve lost some to corruption which is devastating (but I’ve learned to back up on Dropbox and Google Drive as well). I travel and move around a lot with my drives so they get shaken up resulting in the eventual failure of the drive. But recently, after, my second trip to a computer repair place, they set me on a new hard drive path – one that does not have moving parts so it is less likely for me to corrupt another hard drive (rip to all the passport hard drives I used to love. I now love the Samsung portable hard drive. I already filled one up and had to buy a second. Yes, I take a lot of photos and I’m always editing multiple sessions at a given time. I feel much more secure with these new hard drives.
