Update: I’m still sick. Boooooooooooo! I actually feel the worst today, so I’m hoping this will be the turning point of this cold. At the very least, I hope I’m better by Saturday so I can baby-sit for Leila as planned! Since I can’t peel myself off the couch long enough to do much of anything, I’ll be skipping my usual cooking tonight and instead, share with you a few more non-food things that I’m loving!
1. Vintage T-shirts
Its no secret I’m a total jeans and t-shirt type gal. I think anyone who loves to dress casually can really appreciate an old, perfectly broken in, vintage t-shirt. I’ve never found a better selection of perfectly worn tees than those by Skippy haha The lovely Skippy is an EXPERT internet scrounger/vintage shopper, and now has all her amazing finds available on a new etsy site! (for men AND women!) Check it out HERE. Pick yourself up some wardrobe staples! Clever sayings are a bonus! Check out my latest addition below
2. Citrus peeler
My friend Val gave me a citrus peeler a while back and it literally changed my life! I was so happy to not be picking orange peel out from under my nails for hours after enjoying one of my favorite fruits. Unfortunately for me, I lost my citrus peeler somewhere along the way. Frown! (That’s what I get for keeping it in my cavern of a purse) As luck would have it, I saw a display rack of peelers when I was at Henry’s the other day! YES! I’m back to hitting the oranges hard, just in time to battle off my nasty cold!
3. Baby gifts
Seeing as I’m 30, pretty much everyone I know have become baby making factories! I find myself constantly buying new baby gifts. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining. I LOOOOOVE looking at all cute, mini stuff and exclaiming “OMG! Awwwwwwwww!” I actually think I’m developing a problem where I can’t say no to anything! (seriously, everything is so cute I want to die) My most favorite children’s boutique, So Childish, recently launched their web store! This will save me a 15 mile drive and shipping costs each time a friend or relative has a baby, but more importantly, now everyone else in the world has access to their amazing selection of truly unique gifts! Leyla, the owner, has the most impeccable taste, and I can guarantee you will find something lovely that you can’t find anywhere else. Also a GREAT selection of books! Www.Sochildish.com
Well, I’m getting a bit worn out, so I’ll wrap it up with an update on another favorite, my eggling! Its only been a few weeks this this bad boy is sprouting like crazy! I know I’m going to have a beautiful blossom in no time! Pick one up for yourself or as a gift at uncommongoods.com
