Things I’m Loving Lately 20

Happy Monday fabulous friends!

Guess who I saw this weekend?  If you were following on Instagram you probably saw a glimpse of this cutie!

Ryder 3

Ryder is my brother’s new dachshund and he is so adorable.  Can’t you just smell the puppy breath?  I might have tried to sneak him away in my purse.

I had so much fun hanging out with Ryder and his older brother Solow.  I always wanted a gaggle of dachshunds and finally I feel like I’m getting somewhere.

I also had some fabulous food including this really pretty stuffed pineapple.

What a fun weekend.

Now to celebrate a fresh new week, it’s time for another Things I’m Loving Lately.  I can’t believe it’s my 20th one!  This has been a once a month feature on Running in a Skirt for almost two years now.  You can catch up on what you missed on my Things I’m Loving Lately Page.

Things I’m Loving Lately 20

Batiste Dry Shampoo

I’m obsessed with dry shampoo, but have  not yet committed to one brand I want to stick with.  Last time I bought Batiste Dry Shampoo in the tropical scent.  It is currently taking the lead of my search.  I love this stuff and the smell is amazing.  It’s pineapple-coco-nutty… without being too strong.  It seems like… well Hawaii.

They also have Cherry, Wild and Floral scents.<— all with adorable matching bottles.  I’m kind of fascinated.  They also have a blend for brunettes that I’m curious about.  It does leave a little bit of a white powder behind, but it brushes out.

Watching New to Me Movies

I somehow missed watching a lot of popular movies.  I told you how I’d never seen Star Wars before earlier this month.  I’ve also never seen the Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter and the list goes on.  The Hubs has a little free time before his work gets crazy again, so we’ve been catching up on old movies!  We started the Lord of the Rings and are moving onto the Hobbit next.  I was so scared for poor Frodo!

It’s a nice way to enjoy the evenings while TV is on repeats.

Green Blender Smoothies

I’ve got to tell you guys, I am genuinely impressed and kind of obsessed with Green Blender Smoothies.  I did an entire post on them earlier in the month, but I could not pass up another chance to tell you how awesome I think their product is.  This is not part of the sponsored post, just some extra love for something I really like.  Green Blender packages the ingredients for some seriously yummy and unique smoothies and ships it to your door.  Game. Changer.

Headsweats Endurance Bands

Headsweats sent me a couple of their headbands to try out and I’m loving them.  I have a lot of flyaways when I put my hair in a pony tail and I’m a really sweaty runner.  I love the soft, wider band headbands and these are working like a charm!


Of course this adorable puppy is on the list.  I mean… come on….

    I have 4 doxies, one long hair 3 with short hair… A gaggle of pup-a-lots 😉 would sneak in another if the hubby wasn’t so observant!

      You do have a real gaggle!! I’m more than a little jealous 🙂 I’d totally sneak more if I could.

    I want to snuggle with that puppy! Hehe
    I’m loving my S’well bottles…I can’t leave the house without them!

    Your pups are so adorable!!! OMG!

    I love tropical scents, so I’d be all over that dry shampoo! <3 I still haven't seen most of the Harry Potter's (shhhh), but I plan to someday?!

    Ahh, puppy!!! Thank you so much for the puppy photos; those just made my night. Puppies are especially great when they belong to other people because you can play with them and then give them back to their owners, who have to deal with sharp puppy teeth and incessant chewing 24/7. 😉 I’m also obsessed with dry shampoo. Have you tried Dove’s volumizing dry shampoo? It’s pretty inexpensive and I’ll sometimes even use it on clean hair for a little extra volume. I’m totally in love with it!

    • JulieWunder January 22, 2016 at 11:56 am - Reply

      I haven’t tried Dove’s yet! I’ll add it to my list!
      And yes… that puppy is adorable but WOW a lot of work!

    I love Headsweats visors but I had no idea they had headbands now! I’ll have to check them out!

    Ryder is soooooo cute, I would have tried to sneak him in my purse too

      They’ve caught onto my puppy stealing games 🙂

    Ryder!!! I. Die.

  9. I haven’t tried dry shampoo but I could sure use it today! My hair needs a wash…maybe one of those cute headbands would help?

    • JulieWunder January 22, 2016 at 11:54 am - Reply

      Haha! It would! I highly recommend try shampoo! Changed the way I do my hair.

    The puppy is adorable! I don’t know what we did before dry shampoo came along, seriously! I haven;t tried that brand though so I will keep an eye out! Have a great week!

    • JulieWunder January 22, 2016 at 11:50 am - Reply

      I know! I save myself so much time not having to fix my hair every day.

    I am such a dog person. So cute! I have received a bottle of dry shampoo for Christmas and have yet to try it. Every time I work out I feel like that may not be enough so I wash my hair completely. Maybe I will try it on a day I don’t work out. I have never seen any of the Star Wars, Hobbit, or Harry Potter movies. I really have no desire.

    • JulieWunder January 22, 2016 at 11:48 am - Reply

      Yes! Give it a shot! It has helped my hair so much. I feel like it takes a little while for your hair to get used to not being washed everyday– but when it happens it’s amazing 🙂

    Glad you had a great weekend.
    Ryder is a cutie ( smile ).

    I can’t even with the puppy. Seriously, I die. And love me some dry shampoo!

    I think you need a whole litter of dachshund puppies! Ryder is adorable!!

    • JulieWunder January 18, 2016 at 10:05 am - Reply

      I do too! The hubs doesn’t feel the same 🙁

  15. Morgan @ Morgan Manages Mommyhood January 18, 2016 at 8:36 am - Reply

    Oh my goodness that puppy though! He is too cute! Also, that stuffed pineapple looks amazing!

    • JulieWunder January 18, 2016 at 10:05 am - Reply

      Thanks Morgan! Hope you are having a great start to the week!

    Such a cute puppy…you just want to cuddle with him!! Thanks for sharing your things you’re loving!

  17. Annmarie January 18, 2016 at 7:56 am - Reply

    Um that puppy is adorable and I want him right now! 😛

  18. Aw what a cute puppy! He already looks happy and content. I do like dry shampoo as well have not tried that one yet

    • JulieWunder January 18, 2016 at 10:03 am - Reply

      He is so adorable! This has been my favorite dry shampoo so far, and I’ve probably tried 10 different kinds 🙂

  19. Gretchen | Gretchruns January 18, 2016 at 7:31 am - Reply

    You definitely need to try the brunette Batiste! It’s SO great. I always need to have one around!

    • JulieWunder January 18, 2016 at 10:02 am - Reply

      I’ll try it next time! I’ve worried it will be too dark, but I’ll take your suggestion!

  20. Renee @ Bendiful Blog January 18, 2016 at 7:16 am - Reply

    I seriously only function by using dry shampoo! It’s my favorite. I like the Bastile clean scent. I use it every other day religiously.

    Awwwh, that puppy is SO adorable. You have made me really jealous, as we are thinking about getting a puppy at the moment and I just want one now!

    • JulieWunder January 18, 2016 at 10:01 am - Reply

      I know! It’s been on our minds lately too… he is A LOT of work though. It’s been a long time since I’ve been around a true little puppy.
