Things I Love Thursday

Linking up with Alissa over at A Journey to Thin today for Things I Love Thursday! This is the first time I'm participating, so today it's just a ramshackle of things I'm currently loving.

Bolthouse Farms Yogurt Dressings
Have you tried any of these dressings yet? In my grocery stores, they in the cold case by the produce--NOT on the regular dressing aisle or with the other dairy products. They're amazing, and only 35-45 calories / 1 point for 2 tablespoons! I've tried the Cilantro Avocado, Caesar, Classic Ranch, and Mango Chipotle; the Cilantro Avocado is definitely my favorite, but I tried the Mango Chipotle today and it was awesome! They don't taste "light", and they're super creamy and flavorful. I have not seen the Salsa Ranch yet, but I hope my store gets it soon--I want to try it!

Starbucks' Mocha Coconut Frappuccino
So, I don't know if you heard, but Starbucks has FINALLY brought back their Mocha Coconut Frappuccino! It's my absolute favorite drink in the whole world, and the last time they had it was in 2012. I haven't seen it advertised in either of the stores I frequent, so the only reason I even knew it was out was because I saw it as an option in the Mobile Order & Pay section of the Starbucks app on my phone. Upon further research, it's actually been out for a whole week! I'm not sure if it's just my stores that are being so secretive about it, but I'm a little upset that I missed out on a whole week of the goodness. If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, you probably saw a glimpse of my excitement yesterday:

My New Haircut
I chopped off my hair last September, and I've been going progressively shorter every time I get it cut.
September 2014
My regular stylist left, so I had someone new last weekend when I went for a trim. She's a little more daring than my former stylist, and I love my hair! See above Starbucks photo. 

And that wraps up this week's edition of Things I Love Thursday!


  1. Hi Christina - your haircut is awesome. I like the short hair on you - it suits you very well - not everyone can pull off short hair. Also, the Caramelized Sweet Onion and the Mango Chipotle sound great - have you tried them?

    1. Thank you! I've tried the Mango Chipotle--it's delicious! Has a slight kick to it.

  2. I'll have to try those dressings! And your hair looks great.

  3. I have had the classic ranch and avocado cilantro - I will definitely try more. Your hair looks fantastic - it shows off your great smile :)

  4. The shorter hair is really cute! My hair gets too curly and puffy if I cut it too short but I love seeing your current haircut on people - it's so chic and looks so easy!

  5. The the hair! It's time for me to go in and do the same thing!

    Just found your blog and now following :)

  6. Yay! I'm glad you participated in Thing I Love Thursday. :) Thanks so much for sharing about those salad dressings. I've seen them in stores but had no idea they were so low in calories/points. The flavors look delicious!

  7. Thanks for sharing your favorites! I also was not aware of the Mocha Coconut Frap! Thanks for the info!! :)

  8. The hair really suits, you look like you are in your teens! :)


Hi, and thanks for stopping by my little corner of the internet. I'd love to hear from you!
