It has been some time since I wrote a Four Faves post -- see the most recent one here: http://blog.paigemcdaniel.org/search/label/Four%20Faves
-- but the people who read this blog before (literally 3 of you), have asked me to do this again. Your wish is my command, loyal readers!
Four Faves, reboot style:
I've probably admitted my addiction before, but Garrett's Cheese Popcorn
is my kryptonite. I'm drawn to it like a bee to a flower, like a fly to honey, like e coli to raw room temperature shrimp. I get their emails and usually, I delete without reading because it's dangerous, but about two weeks ago they had a special on for National Cheese Day and I couldn't resist. I ordered one can of cheese and one can of Garrett's mix (caramel and cheese mixed) and, well, you can see what happened within a week. The cheese is long gone and the mix is hidden in my closet to leave the premises soon. A pox on you, Garrett's!
I watch a lot of reality TV and am an expert in all things Bravo. Note photo of me with the Bravo guru Andy Cohen and my niece at this year's Chick Lit Luncheon benefitting Community Partners of Dallas. Such a nice guy!
But my current addiction is 90 Day Fiance
on TLC. I have a friend who also watches and some nights we are keeping the texts ON FIRE as we comment back and forth. And the franchise doesn't stop there -- They now have a show called Pillow Talk
where former and current cast members lie in bed and comment on the evening's episode. It is hilarious. Well worth several hours of your time a week -- and yes, you read me right, SEVERAL HOURS...
I ordered this Jin Soon Nail Polish
on Amazon after seeing a recommendation somewhere. I do my own fingernails and am always trying to find one that stays on better. Light colored nail polish is my favorite (because I can't see the chips and imperfections as much), so I ordered away and hoped the polish would look good. It does and the best part is it dries SUPER quickly. I do the bottom coat, 2 coats of color, and a top coat, and I'm not kidding, it seems to be pretty dry in about 10 minutes. My old polish (Chanel, Essie or OPI) would crease even after hours of drying. This stuff is a winner!
4. Traders Joe's Everything But the Bagel Sesame Seasoning Blend
is the BOMB. I was late to the game, but my friend Cynthia told me about using it on avocado toast and it is a revelation. I've tried it on baked potatoes, mac and cheese -- it would be good on anything. Don't walk, run to the store and make yourself avocado toast and put an over easy egg atop it tomorrow. Sprinkle away. YUM.
What are your faves?
P.S. I do not know why I cannot get these photos to right themselves. Enjoy the neck stretch...
