“Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with strings
These are a few of my favorite things …”
Those things are cute and lovely however those are not my favorite things (at the moment). Since everything I have tried to make recently has been complete and utter failure. I have given up trying to do anything baking/cooking related for the rest of the week. May next week bring some great blogging my way and yours. So since yesterday was about love, my thought to you would be to share some things I love, just a day late.
I love nail polish and by love I mean LOOOOOOVE! Since I have all this down time from being unemployed I have been using some of my time to paint my nails and try out nail combos thanks to reading nail blogs. Those blogs are enablers. They are my pusher and welp, I have no will power. A job is what I be needing so I can continue funding my habit. The nail polish I am loving at the moment is China Glaze’s “Dorothy Who?”It is a beautiful shade of blue, dare I say Sapphire in color, and it’s glittery! It applies like a dream and when you apply some chunky silvery glitter polish to your tips; you can give Lady GaGa a run for her money (not really).
Next up is this fabulous candle that I got from Domestic Goddess Ltd on Etsy. Etsy is such a great place to find anything! You are looking for a gift then head on over to Etsy. I have a wishlist a mile long with all the great things I want. There are baking supplies, party supplies, scarves, hats, NAIL POLISH, jewelry, and the list can go on and on.
Back to the candle that holds a spot in my living room. This candle is called “Fat Kid Friday” and it smells like the most tempting sweet you can imagine. Light it up and let the smell waft over you. It feeds that need for sweets without putting anything on your hips. So if you are dieting or taking a better life approach and trying to curb your sweet tooth, this candle is like having your cake but not eating it. Oh, this candle does come with some bite size candies that you can devour, so if you don’t want to be tempted I’d advise you to tell the Domestic Goddess no to the candy.
Music. I love Music. So if you have some suggestions for me put them in the comments below. I listen to just about anything. What I am loving is Spotify. You connect with Spotify through your Facebook but unfortunately it is not everywhere say like Canada, sorry my friends to the North. It’s a listening party that you can customize. You want to know how the latest Colbie Callait is before buying? Take a listen on spotify. Want to create a Period Playlist a la that movie “No Strings Attached”? Do it in Spotify. If you have iTunes installed on your ‘puter it will sync with your iTunes and import those playlists to your spotify, allakhazam! Spotify allows for some great listening. My fave playlist of the moment is this GIGANTIC 80’s playlist, the creator is still adding music.
Cheese. If you love some good cheese then head on over to Kitchen Play, for the month of February they are doing 29 Ways to “Leap into Jarlsberg” and yours truly will be Number 29, no pressure. This dip is fabulous. I used it it for the dip to end all dips, which I will reveal on February 29th. I have plans to use it for my favorite quiche. If you like the nutty/sweetness of Swiss then I promise you will love this dip. It’s fun what masterpieces you can create with it. Be sure to check out the food bloggers who have already contributed some ideas on Kitchen Play – spinach dip, Mushrooms, Pretzels, Cheesey Hummus …
Until Next Time,
