10 Favorite Things

Updated: Jan 25

I haven't officially announced it on here yet, but I'm starting a new job (!!!) next week. I'm so excited and very ready to start working again. I got the news right before Christmas and it was truly the best present I've ever received.


I'm going to be an SEO and Content Specialist for a local digital marketing agency called BixPxl. When I told my mom the news, she had no idea what I was talking about, and proceeded to tell me she never really knew what I did at A Beautiful Mess either (I was there for 9 years) Lol.

I figure the best response at this point is "I work in marketing."

ANYWAY, I'll keep you posted. Until then, I'm counting down the days till January 3rd!

On another note, after being unemployed for almost 5 months, I can confidently say that I will be one of those people who still needs to work somewhere after retirement. My brain likes to stay busy, and I've felt pretty dang restless lately.


OK, time to share 10 things I'm into right now:


  1. I LOVE these leather gloves. I've been wanting a nice pair for a while, and these are 1. purple, 2. very warm 3. lined with cashmere. 4. affordable. And, they come in 7 other colors.

  2. Speaking of winter gear, I'm also the proud new owner of a warm, green plaid puffy coat.

  3. This doormat is extremely relatable to my current stage of life. 😆

  4. I bought this soft $13 throw blanket and then promptly ordered another one as birthday gift. It's perfect!

  5. My glitter-filled water tumbler recently sold out, but Ban.do just came out with two new ones that might be ... even better? (1, 2).

  6. This is the best clarifying shampoo. I like to use it once a week to get the extra junk out of my hair.

  7. After years of going to flea markets, estate sales, and obsessively browsing online auctions, I still haven't found a set of candles like these. Maybe this year!

  8. I'm filing these earrings under "things I don't need, but want." I can't help that I love gold hoop earrings, ya know?

  9. There's a reason why this spray has almost 18k reviews on Amazon. I use it all the time for sore/tense muscles and on the bottom of my feet before bed.

  10. Speaking of magnesium, a friend of mine had so many good things to say about these drops that I ordered some yesterday. I'll keep you posted on the results. 👍🏼👍🏼


Have a great weekend! It's almost 2024 and I'm ready for it. xoxo, Jacki
