May 10, 2011

I am finally back in Charleston, unpacked and settling in. I swear I had a hangover for two days straight, my head is just starting to clear from the fog of Miami! I am so behind on all my blog reading, I can’t wait to catch up on all my favorites!

Here are this week’s Obsessions!

I have always really liked Serena and Lily’s baby bedding line and now I am smitten with their furniture line. They have some fabulous fabric choices. You can pretty much custom choose everything. I really love their headboards and chairs.

I enjoyed some tasty ceviche while in Miami and now I am obsessed. It is such a fresh and light dish filled with tons of flavor!

After reading many a fabulous reviews on this eyeshadow palette, I ordered it. It does not disappoint. The colors are fabulous. I usually only wear neutral eyeshadow and this has a ton of great colors. I guess that is why Sephora told me they have been sold out since January!

I have been lusting after this dress awhile now. The color is perfection and I love the easy style of it. I could see myself wearing this dress all the time!

I am obsessed with seltzer/soda water. I seriously drink 4-5 cans a day. I love the carbonation and the fact that it has no sugar. While I was home my sister made me seltzer with her Penguin Soda maker she received as a wedding gift. It was amazing, the best sparkling water ever! It was perfectly carbonated and only took like 30 seconds to make. I am adding this to my Christmas list!
