Ever since seeing the gorgeous Hermes blanket in Rachel Zoe’s son’s nursery, I have been smitten. I really want of these babies. I am seriously considering naming my next child something that starts with an “H” so I can warrant one of these even more. Although I was quite shocked when I saw the price tag of $2500, you better believe my hubby would never let me buy a blanket that expensive unless we win the lottery. But a girl has to dream big.

You all know I love to cook and eat alot. It is probably my biggest hobby. This site fulfills all my wildest dreams. It basically features tons of pictures and recipes of food that people have posted. A little similar to pinterest but it is only food. My stomach growls and my mouth waters everytime I look at this site. Here are few things I can’t wait to make that I found on foodgawker.
{orange glazed blueberry doughnuts, buffalo chicken wontons, and caprese eggs}

I am absolutely loving this nail polish color that Chanel released last month called Graphite. It is opaque, shimmery and metallic all at the same time. It has hints of olive green mixed into the gunmetal base. I can easily see this being one of my favorite nail colors for the fall.

I have to admit I am not a big spender on hair products. I usually can’t tell much of a difference between the cheap and expensive versions. I had never heard of this line before but found it at CVS. It was on special for 3 items for $12. Each item is normally $8.99 a piece so it was a great deal. I got the color-treated shampoo and conditioner and the conditioning detangler. This stuff is amazing. It made my hair smell great and very smooth. Upon researching it for today’s post I found out Christophe is a famous hairstylist in Beverly Hills who created this line exclusively for CVS. The man must know how to do some hair because his products are amaze.

I am a pickle freak, I could eat them everyday. My parents brought me a jar of these pickles that they found at Costco and they are so tasty. They are a touch sweet but with spicy heat. The perfect blend of sweet and hot. I eat them daily for a snack.

  1. They make the H blanket in a baby version and its half the price. Does that help you rationalize getting one? Nope… me either. Wish it did! I am right there with you on that obsession
