My Current Obsessions

Tuesday, June 29, 2010

I don't know about y'all, but June has been one busy month for me!  I have a feeling July isn't going to be much different and before I know it fall will be here!

One of the (many) things I love about blogging is discovering what everyone else is loving at the moment.  I have a seriously short attention span and I go through such phases with what fashion or hobbies I'm currently obsessing over!  Like at the moment I am so over summer clothes and I can't wait for the more interesting fall collections to arrive, but who knows if next week I'll be feeling super summery and nautical (possibly inspired by the 4th?).  Is anyone else like this?

I think I've decided that Tuesday needs to be current obsessions day!  (After all I think the second work day of the week needs some serious spicing up)!  Here's a peak at what I'm currently loving today!

1.  Jade Green:  I love just about any shade of green (my favorite color), but after purchasing some beautiful jade beads to use for a necklace last week I've found myself head over heels for anything with a super saturated jade green hue!

2.  Gardening

Although those gardens are beautiful, I would love to plant a vegetable/herb garden.  It will definitely look nothing like this, but I am in love with this pretty, organized garden!

I found these cute little asparagus and broccoli garden kits at Homegoods this weekend.  I planted them on Sunday (with some help from the Poe Cat) so now I'll have to wait and see if they actually grow!
I stopped at a local gardening store this afternoon and picked up a tomato plant and several herbs that I'm going to plant tonight.  I'm super excited to try gardening!  Do any of y'all have a garden?

3.  Modcloth:  They have such a fabulous selection of pretty things and lots of them have a vintage-inspired feel!  I especially love the huge variety of adorable dresses.

4.  Finding FSU Fans in Virginia!

This man drove up next to hubs and I yesterday, honked, and started doing the chop.  I LOVE IT!

5.  Benefit Makeup:  I've been in love with benetint (I use it as a lip stain) for quite awhile and I've recently become obsessed with high beam!  They have so many other fabulous products to explore!  Does anyone else love Benefit?  What are your favorite products?

What are your current obsessions?


  1. I LOVE Benetint!! I can't wait to hear if your cute little garden grows!!

  10. Oooh...I am loving jade green right now too!

  11. I don't know if you know... but just an FYI asparagus is a two year crop meaning you plant it this year and then you can harvest next year.... so you may need a little bit of a bigger pot and a more permanent place for it! :)

  12. I love jade green too! All the jewelry you posted is beautiful!
