Just a few of the things I’m currently obsessing over/lusting after…
1. This straw fedora
Even though I firmly believe that Justin Timberlake should be the only person wearing a fedora, I can’t quit this hat. I got it at Target a couple years ago for a trip to Kauai, but since then it has become one of my summer staples.
2. Three Twins ice cream
I will happily blow my daily calories on this ice cream.
It’s just so flavorful and rich and dense… I could seriously eat this stuff every day.
3. Bobbi Brown’s new Sheer Lip Colors from the Surf & Sand collection
Sometimes you feel like opaque lips, and sometimes you don’t. For those latter days, there are the four new limited edition Sheer Lip Color ($26 each) shades in the Bobbi Brown Surf & Sand collection — Sunlit Pink, Summer Nude, Peach Sorbet and Pink Taffy.
I like these, because even though they’re technically (“air quotes”) sheer, they’re still pigmented enough to show up on my lips. That, and they’re smooth, slick and moisturizing.
They remind me a lot of the Chanel Rouge Allure Coco Shines.
All four are available now at Bobbi Brown counters and online.
4. Ladies of London
Because I really needed to get addicted to yet another reality-ish show on Bravo. This one’s about a group of well-off ladies living in London — some are Brits and some are Americans — and the hilarity that ensues.
5. Cat eye sunglasses
You might think that with me being a cat lady and all I would’ve seen the light sooner and tried cat eye sunglasses earlier in my CCL career, but noooooo.
It wasn’t until I met these Tory Burch sunnies (got ’em on sale, haaay!) that I saw the light.
I think I may need more in my life, meow!
How about you? What are your current summer obsessions? Any good stuff I should know about? Inquiring minds want to know…
