To spice things up I am going to start a weekly post called Obsessions, where I will share a few things I am currently obsessed with. I am also asking some of my favorite fellow bloggers to participate as well, as guest bloggers. I am so excited to learn about other’s favorite things and share my favs too! Here is my current list of things I am dreaming about:

I love everything about it, it even inspired my new header. I am desperately trying to incorporate some in my house!

This makes me ready for Spring! I love the pinkish coral color. This would look amazeballs on tan hands!

This stuff is the bomb. It cleans brushes so easily. I use gel eyeliner so I use it daily to clean my brushes. I can’t get enough of it!

I am so happy that neutrals are “in” for this spring/summer. I love, love, love a nude dress (especially with a tan, because right now my white legs would blind you)!

Here are two neutral dresses, I would love to have in my closet!

Shakuhachi Dress

Twelfth Street by Cynthia Vincent Dress
My parents just bought an ipad and I played with it all last week while I was home. I am now officially obsessed. I need one asap! I am hoping for my birthday in March, I will get one of these beauties (hint, hint).

What are your obsessions? Let me know if you are interested in doing a guest post for me for this weekly series!

  1. I've been so obsessed with an iPad lately too.

    My friend got one for Christmas and uses it like a dvd player for her babygirl in the car. She just straps it to the back of the seat and plays mickey mouse from iTunes. Imagine the possibilities for entertainment for your sweet boy!

    I adore the Chanel polish. It reminds me of a few favorite lipstick colors — Vegas Volt by MAC, and an oldie, South Beach Peach by Estee Lauder. I love the color, too! I also love the neutral dresses, especially the first, but like much like yourself, I need a TAN! Thanks for becoming a follower!

  9. that purple ikat fabric is so stunning! Wish I knew where it was from. Such an unexpected color for this style.

  10. Peyton's Mom says:

  11. Hamptontoes says:

    The blue and white ikat pillows are gorgeous. They'd look fab in a tradtional or modern interior space.

  21. Mama L says:

    great idea for a series! Count me in for guest blogger if you fancy a bit of ‘aussie’ flava….

  22. oooh SO much fun!
    1. scour eBay for great Ikat options…they come straight from Uzbekistan and are relatively cheap. Great for pillows etc (the "bolts" are usually pretty narrow).

    2. You have GOT to get Orange Fizz! That's so you!!

    3. Love me some iPad. Since I'm an Apple person through and through, this seemed a little redundant in my techie wardrobe…it sort of is, but I still tote this bad boy wherever I go. If you don't have other Apple products, this one will change your life. 🙂

  23. Love this post! I will do a guest post if you want! My obsession (besides all things Nursery) would be CANDLES!!!

  24. Sara Mueller says:

    I love my iPad! I hope you do get one soon.

    The ikat fabrics are amazing! I am in need of a new brush cleaner, so I may have to try the Laura Mercier one.

  26. Great idea for a series! I really like the Cynthia Vincent Dress 🙂 I am currently obsessed with the following:
    1) Rose Gold Watches
    2) Cuff Bracelets
    3) Sonya Dakar Skin Care products
    4) Full Skirts
    5) Photoshop Actions
