Summer Favorites 2011

1. Sanuk Yoga Mat Flip Flops. I’m not usually a flip-flop wearer, but these yoga mat flip flops have changed my life.

Have you guys seen the new scents at Victoria’s Secret yet? I nearly leapt out of my skin when I saw Cupquake and Candy Baby. That’s what I’m talking about. I picked up these three body mists this weekend. I love Cupquake and Candy Baby, but they’re very, very light. Not sure if anyone but […]

Kevin gave me something for Christmas this year that I absolutely loved. He got me a really fun collection of peanut butter spreads in some seriously intriguing flavor combinations. They’re from Spread, a restaurant in San Diego that uses all locally grown, organic ingredients. I was so enamored with these extraordinary flavors that I had […]

I can’t even be trusted at the grocery store anymore. A few weeks ago I was minding my own business, strictly adhering to the list, when what do I notice between the Cheerios & peanut butter? A York Peppermint Patty candle. Dark chocolate covered York Peppermint Patty scented candle. How appropriate. *facepalm* My ever-growing collection […]
