My Current Obsessions

Hi lovelies! It's almost time for a 3 day weekend and I couldn't be more ready! Of course, please do remember that Memorial Day is a day of remembrance for those who have died for our country. Coming from a family rich in military history I understand this very well. It's not our right to live the way we do, it's a privilege brought to us by the men and women who have fought and died for our country. For a more in-depth background on Memorial Day, click here.

I am getting over a stomach bug that has had me out of work for the past 2 days. I am in the office today, but have had absolutely nothing to do except browse the internet and catch up on some snail mail. Not that I'm complaining, but couldn't I be doing this from the comfort of my couch in my living room?

So as a way to break up my mundane day I have decided to post my current obsessions. How exciting!

So this hat is from Target. It's by Merona and I think it was $12.99. I bought it after my trip to the Dodgers game which resulted in sunburned arms that began to peel after 2 days of redness and discomfort. I rarely burn so this was a huge deal. I marched to Target and bought this hat for my next day in the sun. It's so comfortable and stylish too! Actually I wore it to the pool last weekend and what a difference!
Jules sent me a wonderful birthday package and she included the best smelling candle ever. It's by Slatkin & Co. and is sold at Bath and Body Works. The scent I love is called Pineapple Orchid. I am obsessed with this pineapple pierced figural candle shown above and am going to head to a B&BW as soon as I can to stock up on this adorable find. It retails for $12.50.


This Lilly Pulitzer dress is my current favorite of the available dresses on the Lilly Pulitzer website. It's called the Colleen Dress and retails for $278.



Hopefully you've heard of Danielle of The Design Girl. She has recently started a stationery line and has some great designs available. The cool thing about this is that you pay a fee to have Danielle create personalized stationery for you and then you upload the design to a printing website to acutally order the stationery. These printing websites are reasonably priced too. Not only does she do stationery, but she has invitations, address labels, calling cards, etc.



These cookies are from Sugar and Flour, found on Etsy. How divine! They have so many decorated cookies to choose from, but the beach vacation series has to be my favorite! I was searching for treats for my All Things Summer swap when I came across these beautiful creations. I bet they taste as good as they look, but aren't they almost too pretty to eat?! Almost...ha!


I have become *mildly* obsessed with late night television - particularly USA network and TNT. This is because the bf is no longer at home during the night, so I have absolutely nothing to do and talking to my dog for hours at a time can seem a tad bit nutty. So I turn to TV. Unfortunately for me, I am usually drawn into a crime show and then I can't close my eyes for fear that I'll open them and someone will have successfully scaled 3 stories and climbed into my bedroom window. Oh well, Detectives Stabler and Benson are worth it!

thanks for that link on memorial day. my dad's a vet, and he loves to tell people who say "happy memorial day" that there's not much happy about it. but then again, he just likes giving people a hard time!

I'm glad you're getting into law and order. I have a SICK obsession with it. my life motto is 'all law and order, all the time'.

This is a great post and it is nice to be reminded of what Memorial Day is all about. I'm glad you're feeling better!

I love these finds and that Target hat. Those cookies look delicious! It's so funny because I wanted to get you the pineapple shaped candle at B&BW and they were out, so I got the regular one because it smelled so nice :) I'm so happy you like it.
