Things: Good and Bad and In Between

Good I kind of do get paid to read books (I work for a publishing company). More bibliophile musings at Bookfessions. Tiny Tower. Jeffrey Campbell boots. Or maybe these Madwell biker boots. New neighbors who have a dachshund that is a clone of Ollie. They had a bit of a Parent Trap moment when they first saw each other. (The…

The Corner of Awesome and Bombdiggity

Just kidding. This American Life ipad app. 10 years — 445+ episodes — of This American Life at my fingertips. Oh happy day! The lace vase turns any glass bottle or jar into a pretty vase. Just add flowers (preferably from someone cute who also takes you out to dinner). The Johnny Cash Project. Growing up, dinner music consisted of…

Good Stuff

Ever since I got my iPad, I haven’t been reading or going to sleep on at a reasonable hour. I just lay in bed and check Twitter and Facebook and Skype. I love it. 3 day weekends. OPI Muppets-themed nail polish. I need all six sparkly polishes. Please and thank you. Benefit’s BADgal mascara has been a staple in my…

Post of Awesome Stuff (you should read it)

The word kerfuffle. Organix  Brazilian Keratin Therapy products. Sulfate and sodium chloride free shampoos and conditioners. So reasonably priced and will make your hair look and feel like a dream. Scout tote bags. Cute, sturdy, reusable…but what really sealed the deal is the dachshund logo. As someone who orders online from Sephora just for the added perk of  samples, Birchbox…

Dig It

My husband and I filed divorce paperwork this morning, so I’m including an extra long list of things I’m digging to offset this sucky day. Chime in! Giant, fluffy, hand knit bean bag chairs. A pink glitter Anya Hindmarch clutch. Mandy Moore. The Half Price Books kid. “I come here to sneak some peeks at some books.” And then everyone…

It’s not all sunshine and puppy dogs

With the recent rash of posts highlighting things I enjoy, I’ve been asked by several people if there are things that I loathe. To which I respond, “You don’t follow me on Twitter, do you?” I tend to bitch and moan on Twitter more than I probably should – it’s something I’m working on. But since I’m not one to…

Thoroughly Enjoying

Have you heard? I’m now a hugger. The Boys. A documentary about the Sherman Brothers and their work with Disney. You can thank them for It’s A Small World. Tomato soup. I know it’s hotter than balls out (sorry, Mom – she hates it when I say balls), but it’s so good. The Menagerie Giraffe from Jonathan Adler. Elie Saab…

How do you say “I like these things” in Spanish?

Long live the Oxford comma. This I Believe. The 1950s essays are my favorite. Poppin. Office supplies make me happy. Especially when they come in cheerful colors. Seafoam green. Specifically this Marc by Marc Jacobs purse in seafoam green. The Book of “Unnecessary” Quotation Marks: A Celebration of Creative Punctuation. This ampersand necklace. (Punctuation is a big theme for me…

More appreciating.

My Drunk Kitchen. Why didn’t I think of this? Our President, the baby charmer. Root beer floats. I lived on homemade root beer floats the summer of 2006. This summer appears to be developing similarly. GoodReads giveaways. Did you know you can enter to win bazillions of books? Also? “Bazillions” is a rough estimate. Yoda, the world’s ugliest dog. She…

Oh, you know. Just appreciating some things.

Bensimon sneakers. It’s impossible to choose a color. Teeny tiny trailers. This is quickly becoming a real goal of mine. Should I make it official and add it to the 40×40? Terrariums. Little Things. Everything eShakti. This mock two piece dress and this color block dress and all the blouses. It’s so exciting to see unique styles that are available…
