I haven't done a "Things I'm obsessed with lately" post in awhile, so here are a few of the things I can't stop swooning over these days!
My new Fossil handbag. (in black)
About once a year, I get a bug to purchase a new handbag. I've learned over the years that the impulse-buy handbag never lasts because chances are, if you pay $20 for a purse then stuff it full of heavy things, it will inevitably fall apart. So over the course of several days, I scoured the interwebz for a good, high-quality black leather handbag. And I landed on Fossil. (I always land on Fossil.) This bag is the perfect size, very versatile and can be dressed up or dressed down. I don't switch out my handbag a lot, so having a transitional bag is a must for me.
Okay, so I know I'm about 3 years late on this one, but Ryan and I watched Shutter Island the other night (first viewing for me) and I LOVED IT. Mental institution? Insanity? Seriously mentally ill people? LEONARDO DI CAPRIO? Sign. It. Up.
It's citrus season in AZ, and we have an abundance of many delicious things in our little apartment thanks to coworkers and family with lots of fruit to give away. We have ruby red grapefruit (yummers with Sweet n Low or Truvia!), tons of lemons, oranges and tangelos. Oranges are my favorite favorite favorite fruit. I could eat then all day long - and that's exactly what I've been doing! At least 3 a day. Keeps the doctor away, right?
MAC Shy Girl lipstick and Peachykeen blush.
I've slowly added some high-end makeup products to my collection over the past year, starting with the Naked palette from Urban Decay. I got NARS Orgasm blush as a gift for Christmas 2010 and it is just now running low, so I replaced it with MAC's Peachykeen. I've also been lusting over MAC lipsticks for several months and have been looking for a really nice neutral with lasting power, and Shy Girl was the answer to that! I'm happy with the investment and I like that MAC does a recycle program - exchange 6 empties for a free lipstick.
Chopped on the Food Network and Project Runway All Stars.
There are few shows that I get REALLY excited to watch every week and these are two of my current favorites. I usually Tivo PR and find myself looking forward to a spare hour on Fridays or Saturdays when I can get caught up. I'm rooting for Austin all the way!!! …Mondo as a close second :)
