1. This Trader Joe’s Coconut Body Butter. I’ve basically had to physically restrain myself from tasting it. Enough said.

2. Frozen blueberries. So boring. So weird. I know. I don’t care.

3. These Urban Decay Lip Colors! You know I worship at the altar of MAC Dazzleglass but I am hooked on these. They are so glossy and smooth. Hot sparkly pink for the win.

4. This beauty blog. Uh, pretty sure I’ve lost like 10 hours of my life watching the best eyeshadow you tube tutorials ever. And by 10, I really mean about 50.

5. This chocolate. Oh my gahhhhhhhh. Kill me now. I know it’s been ages since I’ve done a Trader Joe’s post but… you need this. Trust me.

What are you obsessing over? Please help me feel sane.

    Wow, I must have that chocolate!! I was very tempted to buy that body butter at TJ’s, maybe I’ll have to pick it up next time :)

    I love frozen blueberries!! Sometimes when I’m lazy (and don’t have ice cream), I just pour some in a coffee mug and eat them with a spoon.

      I heartily second Randilea’s comment…I adore frozen berries and eat them in the exact same fashion…with a spoon in a glass dish….so yummy.!!!!

    I’m obsessing over that Body Butter too. I want to lick the tub :) I better get one of those choc-coconut-caramel bars (that I’ve purposely not bought!) and lick that instead.

    I’m also obsessing over yeast, bread, dough, and everything related to bread making. It’s..crazy but loving it!

    Beauty blog I love: imabeautygeek.com. Maybe a little Canadian-geared, but she is awesome. Love the one you linked to! I’m obsessed with coconut milk ice cream.. Luna and Larry’s Cappuccino and So Delicious Mocha Almond Fudge.. I cannot stop. Also oatmeal cooked with chopped dates, topped with peanut butter and vanilla almond milk. Maybe boring, but so amazing. If you ever want to concoct an oatmeal-date-pb cookie I would be in love I think :)

    I am a lazy B – Trader Joe’s is like 10 blocks from my office yet I dispatch my TJ wish list to my mom so she can pick stuff up for me when she goes, then drop if off to me at a later time.

    Current obsessions: Revenge on Sunday nights, pumpkin every blessed thing, fall foliage, fall sunset skies, finding the perfect under eye cream, Bobbi Brown creamy lipstick in Italian Rose, Essie Bahama Mama.

    I miss your Trader Joe’s post. Although my checking account does not. I am totally obsessed with their Coconut Body Butter and next visit I will definitely grab that chocolate bar even if I have 20 lbs of candy bars at home waiting for trick-or-treaters and judging me. Living in San Diego makes me miss out on Fall so please keep the pictures coming.

    things i’m obsessing over:

    on the list:

    http://www.purlbee.com/oxford-burp-cloths/
    http://www.makeit-loveit.com/2011/02/knit-receiving-blanketknit-baby-hats_08.html

    2. the china pattern on my registry http://www1.macys.com/shop/registry/wedding/product/royal-doulton-countess-dinnerware-collection?ID=193941&PseudoCat=se-xx-xx-xx.esn_results

    3. filling your new Recipe Box feature with all the yummy things you post

    4. trying to learn how to do eye makeup. i don’t really wear anything but mascara right now, and i’m afraid if i step it up people will be like “what happened and why are you wearing makeup all of a sudden”? maybe that blog you linked will help.

    5. trying to learn my new married name signature. i have piles of post its on my desk with different options. i feel like i’m in middle school again.
