Obsessions

Happy Tuesday! I just woke up from the weirdest nightmare and it is still weirding me out. Lets just say it involved zombies, plane crashes and ex-boyfriends. So strange!! Anywho here are my obsessions this week!

SHOSHANNA MAXI DRESS

I love, love, love the ikat print and the 70’s style of this dress. I really adore a maxi dress, I would happily have a whole closet full of them. They are staples for me during the summer!

THE FABULOUS BEEKMAN BOYS

I watched a marathon of this show on Saturday. Loves it. Matt is totally Josh, the slightly mean one that has to work all the time and I am more like Brent taking care of the house and farm but happy. Is it weird I just compared us to a gay couple? If you haven’t seen this show it airs on Planet Green, watch it!


MUMM NAPA BRUT ROSE
This is a combo between rose and champagne and it is delightful! So light and refreshing but not sweet. I love sparkling wine and champagne this time of the year when it is so hot out! Best part is it is on sale right now at Harris Teeter for $14.99!


CLE DE PEAU CONCEALER
This is the best concealer I have ever used hands down. I have the worst dark under eye circles that became even darker after I had my son and this stuff really conceals them. It is not cheap, about $70 but it works great and the tube lasts forever. I had been out for awhile and my mom just gave me a new tube and I forgot how much I love it!

KATIE LEE JOEL’S THE COMFORT TABLE

I have talked about this cookbook before, but it is honestly one of my favorite cookbooks. Every recipe I have made out of it has been delicious! I use this cookbook so much that the pages are falling out. Yesterday I made her pineapple zucchini bread and it was scrumptious. I am thinking about making her Sheppard’s pie later this week.

    I have that cookbook and need to try that bread! I love the ikat dress too. I am fabric shopping for my kitchen curtains and currently ikat is in the lead.

    Katie Lee Joel is so pretty. I never in a million years would think her cookbook would be good. But everything you post on here is so delicious! I might go get it!

    I love maxi dresses too. I'm wearing one today even though it's 50 degrees and I look like a damn fool. 😉

    These are all great obsessions! And so glad to find a tip on concealer because my now-discontinued last tube is almost out!!!

    totally agree on the clea de peau concealer! I have serious dark circles too and this stuff does wonders!!!

    I just decided I really need a maxi dress! And the one I wanted from Nordys is gone 🙁 Loving this one you pictured!!

    I have been wanting that cookbook and I'm such a sucker for champagne!

    I love Katie's cookbook and I love her photo's too. Her meatloaf is amazing. My brother in law knows her from college, I wonder what she is up to these days?

    I've always eyed Katie's cookbook, but hesitated to buy it. Now I won't hesitate. By the way, I took your advice and did start a blog. I hope you check it out when you have time!

    Good afternoon from Tokyo!

    Katie Lee's cookbook is great, isn't it? It's one of the few we managed to smuggle away before our move to Tokyo. I figured anything endorsed by Paula Deen had to be solid!

    As for the Beekman Boys…I wish I could watch them here! I've heard nothing but praise in regards to them. Maybe our next move will give us the opportunity.

    Have a wonderful week ahead with your lovely family.

    Warmly,

    Elizabeth

    Love your obsessions! Especially the Mumm Napa. Visited the vineyard while in Napa a couple of years ago, one of my favorites!

    Love that Shoshanna maxi dress, so perfect!

    I have AWFUL dark circles, so I should definitely try that concealer… if it works it's worth every penny!

    That dress is tres fab! I'm totally digging the retro ikat and tie dye prints for summer this year…this is perfect! Thanks for sharing!
