All vinyasa scarves. Oh my gosh. I have multiples (like the striped pink one above) and wear them CONSTANTLY. I don’t think I’ve been so obsessed with a piece of clothing since my denim jacket found it’s way out of my closet last May. I can’t get enough. They are so freaking versatile. My cousin has even been using hers while training for a marathon and they.are.perfect. Definitely my most worn item, ever.

Nashville. Like, the TV show. I know, I know. It’s nothing new. I’ve talked about it in my Tuesday Things and well, if you follow me on Twitter or Facebook, THAT has to be annoying. You already know how much I love it. No idea why I’m so infatuated but dude, I am hooked. I don’t think I’ve been sucked into a show so quickly since True Blood debuted in 2008. Connie Britton is perfect, that guy that plays Deacon is so ruggedly hot and this may not be a wildly popular opinion but I adore Hayden Pwhateverherlastnameis. Pretty sure that’s because she was on Guiding Light like 20 years ago when my mom and grandma used to watch it.

Avocado. Yeah, a given right? I have pretty much taken it to the next level though. I’ve been living on them. Oh and the best part about this? So, you know my BFF Kelly, aka FaceBaby’s mom? First off, holy crap, she is pregnant with TWINS so can you imagine double the cuteness? No, I can’t either. Anyway, she has always hated avocados and now she is crazy over them too. Like she is sending me photos three times of day of bowls full of just avocados. We are starting a support group. I’m mostly still mashing them on toast but tomorrow I am doing this.

My favorite iPhone photo app at the moment? VSCO CAM. Actually, this has been my favorite for months and months. Last year I shared my favorite photo apps but this is definitely in the number one spot. Most photos I upload to instagram are mildly faded with VSCO CAM. Adore.

This copycat chipotle corn salsa. I forgot how much I loved it. Know what I’ve been doing? Making a layer of blue corn chips, a ton of that corn salsa, some black beans and cheese, then popping it under the broiler. I love life.

These Kate Spade earrings. I have had a pair or two of these over the past few years, but for my birthday in November my cousin bought me these hot pink ones (shocking, I know) and I basically wear them 24/7. All of the colors are amazing and they are just the perfect pair of wear-it-everyday earrings. You can totally wear them dressed up or down.

The TLC Pandora station. Not joking. Stop laughing. It’s incredible. Just wait until Color Me Badd comes on. Yep. Jam out.

My Erin Condren planner. I will never be someone who keeps track of things electronically because I LOVE TO WRITE. I mean, physically love to write. Pen and paper… I can be entertained for hours. I think I first learned about these from Kristen (one of my favorite people in the universe) and they are so helpful. Also, uhh… did you see how girly mine is? So embarrassing.

This candle. cocktails and coconuts? Please, twist my arm. This is my favorite summer scent from B&BW and it makes me feel like I’m lying on the beach.

This is clearly a no brainer, but alllllll the Valentine’s Day accessories at Target. I wish I could get my act together enough to put up a few cute decorations for these little holidays but, ummm… I can’t.

That’s it, I think. What things (besides all that makeup) are you loving this month? Boots? Tell me about boots please. I’m loving some I got on sale in December but couldn’t find them to link. Whomp whomp.

    Ugh, can we please not talk about my obsession with Vinyasa Scarves. I WANT ALL THE VINYASA SCARVES.

    I love to write, too – electronic calendars are great and all but give me a pen and paper any day! For months I’ve been torturing myself ogling those damn Erin Condren planners, lol.

    Chelsea @ Chelsea Eats Treats — January 31, 2013 @ 5:08 pm

    I’ve been wanting these boots ( for MONTHS so I was thrilled when they went on sale from $88 down to $44. However I still didn’t pull the trigger because it’s almost spring, I have a million boots already, yadda yadda. THEN they went on sale for $22 last week for ONE DAY ONLY. Sold! They are now allllll mine mwahaha!

    Kristina — January 31, 2013 @ 5:13 pm

    see? that’s the dachshund stuff I was blabbering about yesterday.

    the only new thing I’m really obsessed with right now is Tootsie Roll Pops. they have new flavors (blueberry!) and I cannot stop eating them. I’m having one right now.

    Liz @ Tip Top Shape — January 31, 2013 @ 5:18 pm

    I just bought myself an actual planner! I have all these apps on my computer, but I don’t feel like I actually have something set until I write it down. Also, love that scarf!! Super cute!

    Rebecca @ Pavlova's Dog — January 31, 2013 @ 5:31 pm

    You’ve just inspired me to buy my boyfriend’s mum (we’re British) a Vinyasa scarf for her birthday. She’s a pilates teacher and Lulu Lemon enthusiast – when she can find it in the UK, that is. Plus can you even imaaaagine all the in-law points I’ll build up?!


    • Jessica — January 31st, 2013 @ 5:38 pm

      i seriously think they are one of the best gifts ever!

    Becky — January 31, 2013 @ 5:32 pm

    Boots! I’ve been living in my Bogs (so not attractive) for weeks given the windchills in Minnesota lately. They’re galoshes. But they’re *so* cool and they have handles!

    Dara — January 31, 2013 @ 5:33 pm

    I’m with you on Nashville! Not sure what it is, but I’m hooked! I saw this the other day, blew my mind!

    I got these Tommy Hilfiger boots from TJ Maxx for $40 instead of $129. I am obsessed.

    melissa {persnickety plates} — January 31, 2013 @ 5:39 pm

    I kept seeing #vsco on Instagram but I didn’t know what it was. Thank you for that.

    I love Nashville, too. & I think I’m stopping at Target on the way home tonight. I need more stuffs. I got new boots a couple weeks ago (Von Maur sale!) & love them.

    I’ll have to try the TLC station. Last week I did the Back That Azz Up station. It gets you ready for the weekend, for sure.

    Jess — January 31, 2013 @ 5:44 pm

    Obsessedddddd with grape nuts. Like, again. I’ve been putting them on everything, but my absolute fave has to be sliced banana + greek yogurt + grape nuts. YUM!

    Also loving Downton Abbey, West Wing (we just started this one, and we love it), this Suave dry shampoo I got, and these “tamis” I got at Old Navy for a steal. They really are the perfect combo of tank top and camisole. They are really long, really colorful, and I adore them.

    Kristen — January 31, 2013 @ 5:47 pm

    OMG boots! I went online last weekend ‘just to look’ and ended up buying two boots, a pair of flats and a trench coat. I LOOOOVE boots- currently I own 7 pairs (+2 since I’m def not sending these guys back) which might be slightly too many- I need to find a good way to store them as they currently fall all over each other in my closet.


    • Becky — January 31st, 2013 @ 6:10 pm

      Pinterest says pants hangers with the clips on them! Clip on the inside so you don’t mar the leather. Or so they say, I wouldn’t have thought of that either.

    I just bought these last month, guess what, I have big muscular calves and these fit.. worth.every.penny.

    Julie — January 31, 2013 @ 5:53 pm

    I didn’t know about vinyasa scarves! And this is why I love blogging. Amazing. (I also am loving avocados, but that’s like a permanent/cannot be eradicated kind of love).

    Your chips, salsa, and broiler trick sounds like dinner in my early 20s about 4 nights a week :)

    And I thought I was the only one who didnt keep track of appts and such digitally.I actually have a date book and write dates in it, like with a pen. I love being oldschool and not digitalizing that. Your Erin C link is fabulous. Thank you!

    Marissa — January 31, 2013 @ 6:23 pm

    I SO want that pink vinyasa scarf, but I don’t see that color online anymore. Did you get it recently? Do you think they might still have some in stores?



    • Jessica — January 31st, 2013 @ 7:13 pm

      they were selling it before christmas, which is when i got mine. they were sold out right around christmas but had a few more in stock after. they might have some in actual stores!

    Erin from Wicked Vegan — January 31, 2013 @ 6:48 pm

    My all time favorite avocado recipe is avocado toast with a sprinkling of garlic salt and red chili flakes and then a fried egg on top. I know this is practically almost exactly what avocado toast is but I swear that it taste a bajillion times better. Pinky swear.

    NancyC — January 31, 2013 @ 7:05 pm

    I was ok with the TLC Pandora channel, but you lost at me at the Color Me Badd one… :-)

    Abbey — January 31, 2013 @ 7:41 pm

    Ugh, Vinyasa scarves are the best. BUT, i only like the ones made of Rulu. I can’t wear the ones made of Luon Light. Seriously they are the best ever. (Un)fortunately, I live in Wunder Unders, Cool Racer Backs, and Vinyasa Scarves.

    Heather @ Heather's Dish — January 31, 2013 @ 9:53 pm

    OHMIGOSH can I tell you how excited I am that you’re into Nashville too?!?! Now we will both be watching a show at the same time and I’ll totally know what you’re talking about! :)

    And Deacon? YES. I kind of want to name our next baby Deacon…

    Nicole — January 31, 2013 @ 11:09 pm

    I have a vinyasa scarf, but I’m not quite sure what to do with it! What is the best way to wear it?

    Ross @ TheFaceBaby — January 31, 2013 @ 11:42 pm

    I am SO geeked about the avocado revolution. Those babies know they belong in California, and they are imposing their will. Mua-ha-ha.

    Oh, and Cassie loves scarves. To the point of having, I don’t know, 200 of them, maybe? Ridiculous. Welp, her birfday’s coming up, might as well make it 201!

    Kaitlyn — January 31, 2013 @ 11:43 pm

    ahhhh YES, someone else who’s as obsessed with their erin condren planner as i am. i went with my name and initials (does that make me vain?) but i love your ice cream cone! her stuff makes me smile.

    couldnt agree more about the vinyasa’s either. i have a light purple one. seeing as i live in baltimore, its coming in especially handy right now too! and the B&BW candle looks right up my alley. you’re just on pointtttt as ever!

    Rachel @ the Avid Appetite — February 1, 2013 @ 10:13 am

    I’m loving my new Frye Phillip harness boots. Makes me feel like I should be riding a horse….not driving a 1999 Malibu

    Samantha — February 1, 2013 @ 11:27 am

    You must try THIS recipe for avocados!! I know it sounds weird but I promise it is amazing (especially with a fried egg on top). I’m obsessed with it


  40. #
    Jeska W — February 1, 2013 @ 12:06 pm

    BOOTS!! I started a Pinterest board, just for boots, to find the perfect pair that will go with everything. It didn’t help, now I need them all.

    Nikki — February 1, 2013 @ 12:34 pm

    1. I heart Nashville!!! 2. I have those Kate Spade earrings. 3. I’m dying to get an Erin Condren planner. Thanks for a great post!

    Larry — February 1, 2013 @ 2:50 pm

    OOOOOOOOOk, so I’m totally obsessed with My Little Pony… is that weird? Probably, since I’m a 28-year-old male… but I’m a homo, so that makes it ok, right? But right now they have these bllind-bag figurines that you can buy that are 2″ MLPs and the current theme is CLEAR PLASTIC COVERED IN GLITTER.
    I swear, if you have a mailing address that you aren’t scared to give out to people… you should give it to me so I can send you one (or three) and they would totally brighten your day. Swear.

    Alyssa — February 1, 2013 @ 2:56 pm

    I love these posts :-) You open my eyes to a whole new world of products I would never even know of! P.s. You should totally keep doing these…I equate them to my “Oprah’s Favorite Things” last minute Christmas Shopping idea book!

    Alyson — February 1, 2013 @ 3:17 pm

    I am obsessed with the vinyasa scarves too! and you can put in the wash unlike other scarves! Love!


  45. #
    Amanda @ Once Upon a Recipe — February 1, 2013 @ 4:12 pm

    I have a vinyasa scarf but cannot, for the life of me, figure out how to wear it. I snap the buttons together and it just looks like I don’t know how to put on a scarf. What’s wrong with me?!


  46. #
    luv what you do — February 2, 2013 @ 12:43 am

    I have seen those scarves and want one SO BAD. That pink is adorable and so super cute. I might have to check out Lulu website tonight!


  47. #
    dervla @ The Curator — February 2, 2013 @ 1:44 am

    WAHHHHH i wanna know what boots you got. I need some short brown ones and cute black ones too. I wear the life out of my boots, get the resoled a million times and then wear them some more. I need new pairs!! Also re: the makeup post? LOVED IT and i don’t even wear that much makeup!


  48. #
    HeatherChristo — February 2, 2013 @ 10:25 am

    thank you I am buying that planner right now. Mine is SO ugly- one of those huuuuge black ones that your elementary school teacher had.

    Chloe — February 3, 2013 @ 11:58 am

    Nashville = one of the highlights of my week, every week. I walk around trying to convince everyone I know to watch it because it. is. so. good.

    And oh yeah, I forgot where I had heard about FaceBaby and have been feeling a little bit like a creeper, laughing and awing at this adorable, amazing faced baby every day. But now that I remember that you know him and I know you… wait. I’m totally still a creeper, aren’t I.

    Mackenzie — February 5, 2013 @ 6:01 pm

    OMG. Nashville … I am in love too. At first it was just because of my addiction for Friday Night Lights.

    And I am getting that scarf now.
