Kinky-Curly - I was already a big fan of Kinky-Curly's Knot Today Leave in Detangler (I use it as a styling cream every week); but recently, I picked up the Come Clean Shampoo after learning it has a new formula that addresses issues with hard water build-up. Both products work lovely in my hair.
Tazo's Zen Tea - As I mentioned yesterday, I have been drinking a lot of tea lately. If you've been reading Fly for a while you may know that Republic of Tea's Vanilla Almond is my favorite tea ever, hands-down. But it's a black tea, and sometimes I want something a little lighter. So I tried this wonderful green tea from Tazo. There's a lovely hint of spearmint and lemon, and with a little honey and a sprinkle of cinnamon, this tea is superb for soothing the soul.
Halogen's Vivian Sandal - When I went through my summer wardrobe I realized I didn't have any black shoes. What?! So I treated myself to some 70's inspired platform-esque shoes from Halogen. I was looking for something that could translate from day to night and has a classic silhouette that would work for many for summers to come. I'm all about investing in high quality items that I can rock for a while. Also, this shoe is incredibly comfortable!
Toms Shoes - I've been wanting a pair for a while and finally picked up this Ash gray version. They make my feet happy (so comfortable) and my heart smile; because for every pair sold the company gives a pair to a child in need. Love this.
The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success by Deepak Chopra - My mother gave me this book several years ago. For some reason I wasn't ready for it then, but recently I kept seeing it around the house and decided to read it during my break. I read a law a day. It was pretty magical. The book confirmed a lot of what I've been thinking lately and opened my eyes to how I want to live.
Soil Mates - My homegirl and fellow Tyler alumna, Sara Alway, just released her amazing book, Soil Mates. It's the perfect guide to companion planting (meaning certain vegetables planted together thrive and can sometimes protect each other from natural pests). The writing is superb and the illustrations are really fun. My mother is an avid gardener so I gave her my copy that was sent over from the publisher. I've been helping her prepare her vegetable garden and we love referencing Soil Mates as we go. (Perfect Mother's Day gift for a mom who gardens.)
