Stuff I Like

We all get them, you know which ones I mean. #Emails from friends, co-workers and relatives that come in the form of  jokes, youtube videos or cutsy inspirational thoughts of the day. There’s even the ones that ask you to put your name on bottom of the list and then forward to ten people within 24 hours or karma will wreak havok on your day. Amongst all those emails there are some nuggets that either bring a smile to my face or make me leave them in my inbox for further review another day. Needless to say, sometimes that ‘another day’ never comes and it gets burried along with everything else. Enough of that though! Here is the spot where I am going to list those little jewel of emails that I think you will really enjoy! Here’s my list:

1. For those of you who are crafty, these candles look like an interesting #Christmas gift

2. The best video on how to tie all those scarves in your closet:

3. How to make the best homemade french fries.

4. Giada De Laurentiis has a great site for healthy, yummy recipes!
