New Favorite Things

One of my most overused phrases is “That’s my new favorite thing.” For example, it can be overheard after discovering the awesomeness of Scandal, the baby sleeps through the night, or I find a new lip gloss. Calling anything a “series” is the blog kiss of death for me, so from time to time I’ll share a few photos of my new favorite things. This one is a little random to get me started!
New Brown 'do
The new ‘do | Still not sure if brown is my favorite color, but I’m slowly getting used to it. My eyes are closed because, well, my eyes are closed in about 99% percent of the pics I take. Apparently I’m a big blinker.
Dollar Store Lipgloss
Dollar Store Lip Gloss and Nail Stickers | This is seriously the best lip gloss I’ve found! Just the right shade of pink and really glossy. And BONUS I got nail art stickers in teeny tiny heart shapes. Too fun.

Gold Leaf Heart Ring
Gold Leaf Heart Ring | Apparently I lied yesterday when I said that hearts gone wild would be over. At least it’s February now! With some leftover clay from my ring bowl, I made a fancy new ring. I can’t decide if it’s too blingy even for me.
DIY Studded shirt
Big news | I’m not much of a horn tooter but I can’t resist sharing that HH was named an up and coming blog this week (I swooned). Almost 2 years to the day, according to the family journal, that I coined the phrase “Henry Happened.” Oh, and in addition to contributing for Allison at Petit Elefant I’m also going to be doing DIYs for Jen at Made by Girl (like the one above). Woohoo!

Craft Fail | You know what is not my favorite thing? Airheads. I have rolled and cut and crafted with 2 boxes of these guys. Attempting to make candy bath roses was apparently a bad idea because they ended up a hot mess. So much for my chance to win a free trip to AltSummit in NYC. On the plus side, at least this craft fail was pretty tasty.

What’s your new favorite thing this week?

    I’m so excited for you being on that Alt list–you so deserve it and I know it’s the start of even bigger, better things for Henry Happened! And I’m glad you finally posted a picture of the hair change–I love it!

    Have the kids when completely hopped up on Airheads all week? I bet this was their favorite DIY ever, fail or not. :)

      Yes, the kids loved the Airheads! They totally swarmed me at one point and made off with a few. And thank you for the kind words, here’s to a great year for both of us!

    Hahaha Oh you make me laugh so much!

    First, LOVE your hair! You rock a short cut better than anyone else I know!

    Second, LOVE that ring! It’s totally fabulous! Can something really be too blingy? No, I think not.

    And congrats on your blog achievements! You’re so inspiring! :)
