A Few Of My Favorite Things - the Green edition

I've been indulging a little. In shopping. Just a little. 
The last month or so I've picked up some things that I'm super stoked on.
And most of the things I'm buying happen to be green, which is probably my favorite color.

Item #1: Mod Hand Towels from Ross. 
I love them.

What makes them even better is 
Item #2: Matching Wash Cloths! 
I have them rolled up in my Ikea pot.
BTW- that's my bathing suit from when I was an infant. 
I painted the frame of a garage sale shadow box and put 
italian wall paper I got off ebay in the back of it.

Item #3: Meyer's Liquid Hand Soap
Can you say SPLURGE?! At $4.99/bottle, it's not your most economical handsoap, but I really wanted to see what the fuss was all about. It smells pretty good, but kind of strong. 
Favorite quote on from the label:
"The longer you rub your hands, the cleaner they become." 
Thanks, Meyer's. I enjoy rubbing my hands a little longer.

Item #5: Green Superfood in Orange Dreamsicle flavor
Item #6: Chia Seed
I've been kind of on a health kick for the last year and a half. This is not like me. I used to eat whatever I wanted, whenever I wanted. My decision has nothing to do with losing weight (I'm actually under weight). You see, I suffered from frequent sinus infections for as long as I can remember (at least 8 or 9 a year). After having sinus surgery in January 2011, I continued to get the infections and was on round after round of antibiotics. So in September 2011 I began to see an acupuncturist and herbalist and also found out I was allergic to 4 foods I ate constantly.

I've never been healthier! I've had only 3 tiny sinus infections this year, compared with 20 infections last year, each lasting at least 14 days. Yay for health!

The Candida Rescue is NOT one of my favorite things.
The taste is UNBEARABLE!! Anyone want it?

Item #7: Urban Outfitters Stamped Scallop Rug

Who doesn't have this on their wish list? That's what I'd like to know. I'd been eyeing it for at least a year. I'm glad I got it, but I will say, it does not sit well on carpet. It frequently wrinkles up and folds over. Still one of my favorite things, but I had higher hopes. Click here for the link to where you can buy it.

Item #7: Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint in Luckett's Green

Who doesn't want to try MMS Milk Paint? Everyone says it's a dream to work with. Mine arrived earlier this week! I can't wait to get outside and paint something with it!

Are any of your favorite things green?
