Here are a few of my Favorite Things


This week has been incredibly stressful and it is only Wednesday! However, there are a couple of items that are bringing me great joy! The best part is that all of these items are less than $5.  I have decided to make this a weekly feature of the blog. Hopefully, it will allow me to focus on the glass half-full approach and spread some gratitude!

My Weekly Favorites:

1) I am seriously loving So Delicious Coconut Milk! I use a cup in my breakfast smoothies each morning and they have been tasting extra yummy this week! I love that coconut milk has some fat (5g) because it gives the smoothies extra staying power!

I bought Elf liquid eyeliner at Target for less than $3 and it is amazing! It is SUPER easy to apply and is long-lasting. Plus, you cannot beat the price!

I bought Maple Pancake candle tarts at Yankee Candle and they smell AMAZING! Go buy this right now. Seriously. I burned this (in a tart burner) for about 30 minutes and our house smelled delicious all day long. To walk in the door after a long day of work to a yummy aroma is just wonderful!

When I was grocery shopping over the weekend I saw a package of Brach’s Milk Maid Caramels. Somehow they hopped into my cart…. These babies are DELICIOUS! I realize they are not strict Paleo, but they are gluten-free and they are tiny, not to mention scrumptious. They are little bites of joy!

I am addicted to Pinterest and pinning images of rooms in my dream house (see Dream Nursery above!). It is so much fun! If you are not on pinterest, you should be! So. Much. Fun!

What are you loving this week?


About paleorunnergirl

I am obsessed with cooking, running and reading! I teach American Literature at the college level, but enjoy books of all kind! After years of GI issues and being prescribed numerous medications, I found perfection in eating Paleo! I am no longer bloated, nauseous, or miserable on a daily basis. I have delved into creating Paleo recipe-making and embracing an active and playful life!

  1. From the looks of things- I neeeeed to head over to Pinterest to change my life 🙂 Everyone always has THE cutest things on here! ……I would love a glass of that milk, please! Do you think it would ship? I’m betting it wouldn’t spill 😉 Okay, I’ll look for it at the next grocery trip…

    • Seriously, you MUST jump on the pinterest train! It is like creating your most incredible dream world and then sharing it with others! It is so relaxing to me!

      Also, if you can’t find the coconut milk, I will TOTALLY ship you some! Keep me posted!

  2. Good point about the coconut milk.. I usually shy away from it because of the lack of protein, but fat is very satiating, so I’ll definitely be giving it a try.
    I also just bought a pumpkin harvest yankee candle car scent and it makes me sooo happy every time I get in my car. It really is the little things right?

  3. I’ve heard great things about Elf cosmetics–I’ll need to give their products a try!

  4. I love e.l.f.! they seriously surprised me with the quality considering the price! not all items, but a lot of them are very good! i did a review of the pros and cons on my blog a few months back. my absolute favorite product of theirs is the all over color stick! it’s so great for eyes, cheeks, and lips. I love having it on hand in my purse for emergencies!

  5. Brittany @ Itty Bits of Balance

    I’m on Pinterest, but have yet to make a board for my dream house! It’s like all of my childhood dollhouse dreams have become feasible again 😀

  6. I’m totally crazy for Yankee fall fragrances! I’m curious about that eyeliner. I’m very helpless with makeup so I need some more easy stuff!

  7. OH my goodness YES those caramels are soo good! My family always buys them around this time of the year

  8. I ❤ pinterest! Now that I have the inspiration, I just need the money to make my dream home complete…haha. Never heard of elf makeup but I'll have to give it a try, especially with a good price like that why not?? I love liquid eyeliner, but with my shakey hand it does not love me back!

  9. Ooooh I haven’t had those caramels in ages! Good call.

    I’m loving dried cranberries this week. Can’t get enough. Oh, and I definitely ate more than my fair share of chocolate this afternoon….oopsie.
