Things I Bought That I Love: Burt’s Bees Hand Creme and Elephant Earrings

Recently, on a free lunch break, I ventured over to the bookstore on campus. I used to really love the campus Co-Op at UConn, where I went to school; they had a perfect combination of things I needed and things I never knew I needed but suddenly had to have.

Even though the college where I work is a little smaller than UConn, I was excited to see that the bookstore had a great selection of items. I walked out with:

  • Burt’s Bees Hand Creme: Every week, Bill and I spend some time doing manicures. No shame in our game, okay? It’s a really great bonding experience where I do our nails, and end it by using some Burt’s Bees lime-scented cuticle cream. I ran out of the cream, so I needed a replacement and this hand creme seemed like the perfect solution. I love the packaging, it smells great, and it leaves our hands feeling smooth.
  • Elephant Earrings: You can never have too many cute pairs of earrings. I love elephants something fierce, so I saw these studs and instantly knew I needed to have them. They’re so cute!

Tell me something you’ve recently purchased that you love!
