What I'm Loving Wednesday

It's Wednesday...time for What I'm Loving Wednesday with!

So what am I loving this Wednesday?

I'm loving this book...Shopgirl by Steve Martin

I'm not sure what made me grab this book and put it on my Kindle. It was a quick read but that was refreshing after reading a couple of pretty lengthy novels. I found his style of writing unique and so interesting. There was something about this book and the way the characters were formed that pulled me in and just made me want to know what happens to them. I was very surprised by it, enjoyed it and am anxious to read Steve Martin's other novels. I think park of my fascination with the book is that it was written by Steve Martin, the comedian....that alone blew my mind a little!

I'm also loving this shampoo and conditioner by Alba Organics. I'm going to admit that I am a complete hair product whore. I buy tons, have a very hard time committing, and feel no shame with tossing something aside for something that looks better and catches my eye. The result for me is a linen closet in the bathroom with an entire shelf dedicated to shampoos and conditioners that are half full that I've lost interest in. I have thick hair, so finding a good conditioner is a huge pain for me. Sometimes I'll be able to buy something off the shelf at Walmart that will work well for me for a couple weeks and I think to myself..who knew that I could spend $4 on a bottle of shampoo or conditioner and not unload $20. But, I have a honeymoon period and then it just doesn't feel like it's working anymore.

One steady favorite of mine is Moroccan Shampoo and Conditioner from the same peeps who make Moroccan Oil. But..this week I found one that's been working pretty well... Alba Organics Cocoa Butter hair wash and shampoo. $9 at my local Whole Foods although I've seen it at Target and other retails stores as well!

I'm also loving the Tony awards fashion. I'm a sucker for celebrities and what they're wearing. My two favorites...

Catherine Zeta Jones

and Christie oh my god I want to look like her when I'm 57 Brinkley. I love the color..maybe I'm not a fan of all the details but I thought she pulled it off and looked fabulous

I'm also loving that ABC has announced some of the contestants for the Bachelor Pad which premieres this summer. I will admit..I'm a little bored with the Bachelorette. I wasn't a huge fan of Ashley's, I'm over the huge hang up on stupid Bentley and am cringing for her when she finds out the stuff he said in his little interviews and not a lot of the guys are doing it for me.

So, I was beyond excited to hear that this trio is in the cast
who are they...why it's Jake and Vienna..the once engaged couple who went sour quick and her new boyfriend...the weirdo who got the rose tattooed on his arm and thought he could sing, Kasey, from Ali's season of the Bachelorette. I can't believe after all his reality show bloopers with the tattoo, crying, and that awful singing, that he's going back for more!

Happy Wednesday!


  1. I can't wait to watch Bachelor Pad! Great Loves!

  2. Ok, I can't wait to watch this Bachelor Pad! It's going to be so good! haha
    I'm not watching the Bachelorette for the first time bc it was Ashley, I wasn't a big fan of hers either. So I'm glad I'm not missing out on much. haha

    Happy Wednesday! :)

  3. Christine Brinkley is crazy-ridiculous-beautiful. Who looks that good with an AARP card?!

  4. That's the shampoo I use and I love it! Christine Brinkley is so freaking gorgeous! At 57 she looks better than I do at 23. Lame! haha. I am definitely following you to get caught up on all my celebrity gossip!
