Lola’s Favorite Things

Lola's Favorite Things

These are perfect when I need to study! I can fill them with just healthy organic peanut butter (though they sell filler better to go natural) for her.

This is a dream to have this! Would be a blast to make treats.

Lola was super sick when I got her as a puppy. I had to feed her what she would eat and she loves these! She’s picky and expects a salmon or steak nightly.

I’d love to have this. I took Lola on a Jet Blue flight to FL and she escaped her bag, wouldn’t stay in her bag, etc. This looks comfy and pups can see out of the top which would help quench anxiety.


Lola loves these harnesses. They ruin her street ‘cred’ but are adorable.

Homemade Coffee

Homemade Coffee
My favorite coffee making materials! As times goes on, as much as I love buying my coffee out, it is undeniably more affordable and takes less time to make homemade coffee. It’s important to have reusable thermos’s and cups in order to help your process in the morning and to use less paper, etc. With all my crafting, writing, law school, and work, I’m guilty of consuming a tree or two a year and don’t need to contribute to anymore waste.
Nespresso 
Pros: This will get you going with a singular pod or two. My caffeine baseline is having about 5-8 cups of coffee daily but the shots of espresso help me get going without having to consume so much coffee! I can have a quick cappuccino or impress guests or my neighbors with a quick cappuccino that looks like it’s from a true coffee shop.
Cons: The machine itself is expensive. And if you’re going to spend so much money on the espressos make you might as well buy the one that simultaneously foams milk.  A lot of reviews discuss the milk not being ‘foamy’ enough but you need to give the milk time in order to be able to foam up in the machine! Another con is you really can’t make a flavored Nespresso but if you want to go wild you can invest in some syrups from Starbucks. But by the time you add the pod+syrup+milk you likely are only saving a bit of money. I recommend this mainly if you are hope all day and a heavy coffee consumer that is looking for more than 1 espresso or latte daily.

Keurig Coffee Maker
Pros:I think this is best for the everyday consumer, office, business, big family, etc. You can make multiple flavors of coffee and can get the pods on ‘clearance’ (I just bought 60 pods for $7.99 at Bed, Bath and Beyond…albeit I’ll be drinking pumpkin spice coffees in July). It’s boosts morale and ‘gets the job done’. Cons:  Unfortunately, for a heavy caffeine consumer like myself you need to have a few of these. Similarly, I don’t think they have mastered hot chocolates and/or iced drinks. The iced drinks consistently taste watery and you cannot beat homemade or chain stores iced coffee. Furthermore, the hot chocolates are weak and hardly taste chocolatey. I also use this machine in a ‘pinch’ for hot water for tea or swiss miss packs and just don’t put a pod in the machine and voila, tea or swiss miss made!

Following up: I’m hoping to try this recipe this weekend, but am lacking the coffee grinder, coffee strainer but plan on using cheese cloth to try it! http://www.kitchentreaty.com/how-to-make-cold-brewed-iced-coffee-concentrate/

Law School Survival Kit

Law School Survival Kit

I just ordered this after breaking two bags this year due to the heaviness of my law school casebooks. We will have to see how it does! Happy Easter to me!

Clinique flower perfume
$64 – johnlewis.com

I keep a tiny free sample one in my bag. I’m so busy I forget perfume and it keeps me awake and smelling nice for those around me!

Eos lip treatment
target.com

These are perfect to keep your lips moist. God knows you’ll be kissing law students at bar reviews as well as biting your lips of stress freak outs.

You’ll need ample highlighters. You can probably rack up a ton of free ones as people try to recruit you to take their bar class. But these are fun for the variety of colors and the fact that they don’t smear and destroy your page.

I take this everywhere with my initials on it. No one’s about to snag my initials in hot pink on it.

A surplus of post-its is key. Post-it notes, tabs, anything. You’ll need a rainbow of them to get your readings done in style and stay organized.

My favorite pens, paper mate felt tip pens! Are not listed in this, but I buy them by the 16 pack at target and color code the heck out of anything.
Stay cool and stay prepared and law school will soar by….(albeit with tons of long nights, and heavy caffeine)…
