Here are this week’s Thursday Things:
I was flattered and honored when they asked me. Never in a million years would I have guessed when I was a little girl watching my mom read her BHG magazines that they’d be asking me for an interview.
Life is full of surprises, isn’t it.
2. Although these new arrival Owl Dessert Plates are adorable, they signify autumn.
I don’t want autumn. I want summer to continue forever.
“…perfumed with musky, flowery aromas and flavored with notes of caramel and smoke…”
I’m typically not a fan of smoked foods and up until seeing this would say absolutely no way to smoked desserts.
But I may need reconsider that position.
4. The only think I like smoked is smores. Or baked smores that you don’t require a campfire.
“Amika Obliphica Balancing Shampoo is a Sea Buckthorn Berry (Obliphica) Balancing Shampoo with omega 7 + vitamin c that gently restores and nourishes for fine, medium and course hair. Silicone free, paraben free. Safe for color treated hair.The Obliphica berry, for centuries renowned for its healing powers, has an arsenal of antioxidants, vitamins, healthy fatty acids, Omega 3, 6 & 9, and the rare Omega 7 (usually only found in fish oil). These potent vitamins combined with the powerful properties of the Argan nut oil, native to Morocco, come together to form a line that replenishes, moisturizes, and brings out hairs natural balance. The Balancing Shampoo gently cleanses while infusing hair with fatty acids, proteins, anti-oxidants, and other nutrients.”
After just a couple uses my hair is shiner, stronger, and feels like it has more life in it. I don’t know if it will be my forever-and-ever shampoo and conditioner because I do like to switch things up, but I can say for now I like it.
Caveats: it doesn’t suds-up much because it’s sulfate-free so if you like really big bubbles, it may not be for you.
It has a strong fragrance; the conditioner more so than the shampoo, but the scent fades after a day or two. I only wash my hair a couple times a week, and by day 3 or 4, I’d rather my hair smell like perfume than, well, dirty hair.
I have not actually used the mask because it was a little pricey at the beauty supply store, but I plan to order it online. The employees were all raving about it. It smells heavenly, sort of tropical, and if for no other reason that the scent is divine, I plan to order it.
7. If you don’t like a strong scent of pina coladas wafting through your house, then don’t make Pina Colada White Chocolate Cake Mix Cookies
One way or the other, you’ll want to either drink or eat a pina colada.

“According to the Paleo Diet, we humans would be better off eating like we did back in the caveman days. We should eat meat (lots of meat), vegetables, and fruit; work out intensely (think running after wooly mammoths); and avoid any food that requires agriculture and civilization to produce (e.g. bread, cheese, Twinkies)…
…The whole article is interesting, but basically says that we humans are equipped with a digestive tract that evolved to deal with a leafy diet, but has since adapted to eating starchier grains. Our guts can handle pretty much anything we can throw at them (allergies aside), and there certainly isn’t any reason to suppose that we’re better off eating mostly meat…(source)”
Interesting food for thought. Pun intended.
10. I like everything about this Z Gallerie room
The yellow print that looks like stone, the silver mirrored piece behind the couch, the tufted bench, in chocolate, the white rug, the low and modern sectional.
