Things I Love Right Now

Every few months, I have obsession turnover- some call it ADD, I call it enthusiasm. Here’s a few of the things I’m currently smitten with:

Vie Chocolate

Sweet buttery caramels are taken to the next level with the salty crunchy addition of pretzels. I think no more words are necessary.
We discovered these on a recent trip to Park City- more about that later. All I can say is, when you’re there, check out the Park City Waldorf Astoria– it is truly a world class gem. And, go to SugarBuzz in town to score these babies.

Eminence Skin Care Line
I was introduced to this biodynamic line at the Golden Door Spa at the Waldorf in Park City- I brought home an anti-aging set with lemon cleanser that smells like I’m eating lemon meringue pie. (Combining 2 of my fave rituals- pie eating and face washing=genius!) The Eminence Organic Skin Care line offers a truly exquisite experience with products that are so natural that you can see the fresh fruit pulps, seeds, and smell the real herbs. As a longstanding product junkie of  epic proportions, I have to say: this stuff is pretty amazing. The eight green whip moisturizer? MWAH. Belissima.

Singer Stylist Sewing Machine
I bought myself this little number for Christmas- see, here’s the thing. I’ve always known I would love sewing, if it weren’t for all the needle threading and bobbin winding. This machine seems to take some of the tricky parts out of it- PLUS I bought a big old magnifying glass, just in case.

I’m so wicked farsighted, I have to hit my six year old up to thread needles usually. I just know that as soon as I plug this baby in, Martha Stewart will be running for cover.

First up in my sewing world domination: A spiderman pillow for W., 4, and a multicolored mini quilt with yellow backing for E., 6. I really didn’t know what to sew for my 14 year old: a manga quilt??? An IPad??? Something to text on? That will require a bit more learning.

Big Chill
I’ve had an appliance crush on Big Chill for nigh on to three years now. The ONLY reason they don’t live at my house yet?

Color commitment is difficult for me.

It took me 10 years to decide on my Kitchen Aid stand mixer (tangerine) because I was so spun around in circles with the rainbow of choices.

Big Chill comes in eight standard colors, but if you open the PDF of custom choices, the mind is truly boggled. I think we’ve narrowed it down to a fiiiinnnne Kelly Green to go with our new Mango Cabinets, which I refinished over the Holidays (going with being truly in the eye of the beholder…) and I am cautiously optimistic that by Summer, my pretties will come and live with us.

SO what’s on your current list of obsessions? Any pages you’re ripping out of catalogs right now?
