Love List

1.  Game night is always fun...especially when its colder than a polar bear's toenails outside. This fun (and free!) game demonstrated by Chescaleigh and Akilah is sure to be a hit...especially when cocktails are involved.

2. Given that I am on a workout kick, I am constantly searching for things to help me make it a habit. Fitness Blender offers a variety of free workouts online. They are created by two trainers who happen to be married. More importantly, they leave me without an excuse on days when I can't make it to the gym.

3. Aerie recently debuted a new lingerie campaign proclaiming "the real you is sexy." They are not photoshopping the models. Now, the models are still traditional models. They are thin, toned, and fit the American standard of beauty. That said, it's a step in the right direction.

4. Broad City is a new show on Comedy Central and I am here for every minute of it's quirky, ridiculous humor. It's a nice diversion from all of the dark shows I normally watch.

5. I love wine (and chocolate) so this geek chic necklace shaped like the resveratrol (red wine) molecule is right up my alley.

6. The Wonder Bag is the coolest slow cooker I've ever seen. It is such a genius idea and it's helping families to boot. If you want to buy one, scoop it up from Amazon. For each one purchased, one will be sent to a family in Africa.

7. Kinda obsessing over this Eggplant and Herb Lasagna recipe from Chasing Delicious. It will be gracing my table for Sunday dinner very soon.

8. How could I not love an all in one kitchen tool that only takes up as much room as a wine bottle. This thing is genius!! Of course it's from the MOMA store.

9. I love to see natural light streaming through windows and am constantly trying to capture it in my photos. This collection of photos was curated by the NY Times from reader submissions showing "cherished beams of sunlight."
