Slatkin and Co Mint Chocolate Candle! My absolute favorite scented candle in the world and it's definitely not for anyone who doesn't like sweet or food smells. This might be the only chocolate scented thing I've found that doesn't smell repulsively artificial--it really does smell exactly like mint chocolate. *These are on sale right now at Bath and Body Works for $8 apiece--run, don't walk!
Tyrrell's Worcester Sauce and Sun Dried Tomato Potato Chips! My cousin and I first discovered these in Zurich over the summer (available at COOP) and my uncle kindly brought me some back. I have yet to find this flavor in New York, so I'm trying to eat them as slowly as possible (it's not going well)!
My Kindle! This was a Christmas gift from my brother and while I balked at the technology at first (I like flipping pages!), it's now become my way of reading books I'd be ashamed to be seen reading (The Hunger Games) or are too heavy to carry around (any Harry Potter). I do get annoyed that I can't flip to a particular chapter or page, though.
Desktop Calendar! I'm a bit of an organizational freak, and my wall hanging calendar and planner system wasn't working anymore--those monthly wall calendars don't give you enough space to properly write in them! I like to really spread out and see everything that I have coming up, so I picked up one of these big desk calendars every elementary school teacher has. Hopefully this will keep me on top of school and work commitments when the semester starts!
Ole Henriksen Sheer Transformation Moisturizer! I ran out of my Clinique Turnaround Overnight Moisturizer (post) and despite how much I like it, picked out a new one to try. I'm on a bit of an Ole Henriksen kick right now and this moisturizer is not only the perfect consistency for normal/oily skin, but it's supposed to help even skin tone as well. Claims like that are always hard to see, but so far I'm really enjoying putting it on before bed--it has the loveliest airy but still creamy texture.
My Enzo Angiolini Booties! I saw these last month in Macy's and fell in love with them, but $140 was a bit out of my budget so I walked away. Lo and behold, a few weeks later, they were on sale for a mere $45 (don't you just love when that happens?!). They're comfortable to walk in and look equally great with jeans as they do with a nice dress and black tights--I've been getting a lot of wear out of them lately!
Sushi Tray Storage! When it comes to things like my everyday makeup options, I like to really spread out to see what products I'm working with (doing my makeup out of a bag is something I only do when traveling). That method was simply taking up too much space and creating a lot of clutter, so I hijacked my mom's sushi tray to compartmentalize all my products. This way, I'm confined to a certain area, and clean-up is much easier (though I'm sure a certain someone won't appreciate the re-appropriation of her tray).
Totally random, but since this post wasn't food-heavy enough for my liking, here's the product of a souffle-making class I took yesterday with a few friends! Not quite sure I could duplicate it at home, but this one was certainly delicious!
And since one dessert clearly wasn't enough, we also got their famous brioche doughnuts filled with nutella--if you live in New York, go to DessertTruck Works in the Lower East Side. You won't be sorry.
|It was dark, and the flash on my iPhone is way too embarrassing.|
I'll be back to normal blogging tomorrow or the day after. It'll be either another It Just Didn't Work Out Between Us or a post on my curling irons--we'll see what I'm in the mood for!
