7 Sep

This week I’m craving a white peach and cardamom bellini garnished with edible glitter like this “Society Sparkler” from Fashionably Bombed:

Find the recipe and more amazing images of this sure-to-be satisfying sip at Fashionably Bombed.  (How did I not find this blog earlier . . . as in my twenties, when I had time to drink and play dress up!  It’s fab – you must check it out).

CRAVE IT. COVET. LOVE IT. This Week: Covet The Original Orbit Personalized Labels

31 Aug

This {back-to-school} week I’m coveting personalized labels, like these colorful custom Orbit labels:

What better way to label bottles, cups and sippy cups, than with these non-adhesive, reusable, FDA compliant non-toxic, dishwasher- and microwave-safe custom labels?  You can even use these to label your own toiletry products, drink containers and insulated coffee mugs!

Design your own, including a tagline or personalized icon, at Inchbug.  Or shop for pre-printed labels if you or your child has a popular or traditional name.

CRAVE IT. COVET. LOVE IT. This Week: Love Weddings

24 Aug

This week I’m loving weddings:

Wedding season is wrapping up and we’ve been to three beautiful weddings – including a first-time marriage for our 65-year old uncle and his blushing bride – and witnessed two engagements – including my own lovely bachelor brother Uncle B’s proposal to Aunty C.

My own wedding was a mere four years ago, but already, Gump’s (where we registered) is sending me its wedding magazine.  Perhaps they were thinking that I’m done with my starter marriage and on to the next?

First or fourth, official or un-official, weddings rock.

Like our wedding bands pictured above?  Visit Philip Press Master Platinumsmiths on the Sunset Strip in West Hollywood for the ultimate in custom made engagement rings, wedding bands and one of a kind handmade pieces for your jewelry collection.  Don’t think you need to be engaged to wear one of these amazing designs:  a right-hand ring is just what every girl needs.

CRAVE IT. COVET. LOVE IT. This Week: Covet Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse OR

17 Aug

This week I’m coveting Nuxe’s Huile Prodigieuse OR:

This luxurious multi-usage dry oil is just what your sun-parched skin needs to become silky and smooth after too much beach and pool time this summer.  Your whole body benefits from basking in this oil’s sheer sun-kissed shimmer.  It comes in a non-tinted version, but why on earth would you skip the golden glow?

I spied it at the Space NK shop inside Harvey Nichol’s, but you can get yours online for $44 on Amazon, $55 at Bliss or $56 on Beautyhabit.

CRAVE IT. COVET. LOVE IT. This Week: Crave Guinness

10 Aug

This week I’m craving a fresh glass of Guinness, like this one I had from Bewley’s in Dublin last week:

or this pint from Buggle’s in Kilrush:

Did you know that the black brew is actually the lightest non-light beer?  At just over 200 calories a pint, and with tried and tested medicinal properties (like warding off bubonic plague and fortifying pregnant women), you owe yourself a swig of this stout!  As they say, “Guinness is Good for You.”

CRAVE IT. COVET. LOVE IT. This Week: Covet Hempz Age Defying Moisturizer

6 Jul

This week I’m coveting a big vat of Hempz Age Defying Herbal Body Moisturizer:

It’s summer, Ladies!

Time for baring it all in skimpy skirts, sundresses, and swimsuits.  To get summer-ready skin, slather on some of this heavenly scented, silky hemp seed oil infused lotion and feel your skin drink in pure moisture.  Nothing compares (except maybe this fresh handmade Dream Cream from Lush).

Find it at your local beauty supply store for $25/bottle.  Image from Hempz Bodycare.

CRAVE IT. COVET. LOVE IT. This Week: Crave Homemade Pop Tarts

22 Jun

This week I’m craving homemade pop tarts, like these Nutella-filled ones from Buns In My Oven:

I’ve always been a sucker for Kellogg’s artificially flavored, sickeningly sugary, less healthy version, but it’s time to grow up!

For more recipe inspiration, check out the brown sugar and cinnamon pop tarts from Ciao Bella, lovely pink strawberry pop tarts from Sweet Kiera, and kid palate-friendly peanut butter and jelly flavored pop tarts from weelicious.  Now, stop drooling and get baking!
