My current crushes

This post is exactly what I need right now. Thanks to Amy’s comment and Joslyn’s series for giving me the idea.


1. Tom Colicchio – I don’t know what it is, but I have had several impure thoughts about this man. Very much looking forward to the Top Chef premiere tonight.

2. Retro hairstyles – I’ve always had a soft spot for 40’s and 50’s hairstyles, and I’ve recently become obsessed with YouTube how-to videos. This gal is awesome, and I just now realized that a very brief segment of her video was shown on my Nightline segment.

3. NARS Dolce Vita lipstick with Chanel Glossimer in Pagoda on top – Shiny, pinky-rose perfection.

4. Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate – I’ve only had one of these, but it damn sure changed my life.

5. Ashley G’s Beard illustrations – I want to create a room where one wall is covered entirely in these beard illustrations. I dig a man with a good beard.

6. J Brand black cigarette jeans – My #1 clothing staple this fall.

7. Twilight movie – I’m not embarrassed to admit that my tickets have already been purchased. (Picture it now…Whoorl and 120,000 14-year-olds.)

8. Hayden Harnett bag – My new birthday gift. I’m not going to lie, I don’t know if it will fully take the place of my Gray Havana Hobo, but it is a nice change.

9. Super Hopeless Romance – Although fiction, this blog has sucked me into Cordy’s vortex. GET IT TOGETHER, SETH.

10. Relish Meal Planning System – This is beyond incredibly awesome. I love to cook, but have trouble planning my weekly menus ahead of time. This system lets me choose my weekly dinners, creates a grocery list (down to specific aisles) and takes all guesswork out of the planning process. The yummy recipes are just the icing on the cake. (This week’s menu includes dishes such as Buttermilk Unfried Chicken, Huevos Rancheros, Porcini Mushroom and Walnut Penne…)

11. Backyardigans Super Spy episode featuring Cyndi Lauper – Wito is obsessed with the Backyardigans. I am obsessed with the episodes that feature my favorite 80’s musicians.

12. This video of Andrew Bird – Sorry Tom, Andrew is still my main man.

13. The Blue-Green crayon – Best color ever.

Your turn. Who/what are your current crushes?

    Labello Hydro Care Lip Balm: winter in Toronto = dry, gross, flaky lips but not with this li’ll miracle worker.

    Swimming: The Olympics inspired me and now, I’m hooked.

    Mirrored tables (art deco, retro, classy-cheap and AWESOME).

    And this website: http://ikeahacker.blogspot.com/ – TOTAL genius.

    Funny, I just made a list of things I am crushing on on my blog yesterday…and they are true crushes because they are things I WANT but don’t actually HAVE….

    Love the hair tutorials. Have you seen this one from Super Kawaii Mama? I love the hair + the accent.

    Oh, yes. She’s one of my very favorites.

    So I didn’t think the salted caramel hot chocolate would be good. But everyone raved about it, so I tried it. IT IS SO GOOD!

    Also, I can’t wait to see Twilight. I can’t remember the last time I wanted to see a movie this bad. Which is just sad. Since I’m in my 30s.

    I am currently crushless as I’m in a big time rut BUT I will say those new Starbucks “signature” hot chocolates are AMAZING and totally worth the $8,900 they charge for a grande.

    I’m so glad that you love you Hayden Harnett bags. I love mine and I totally need a Havana hobo now after seeing how much you love yours.

    That’s a gorgeous bag, that just might end up making my crush list. Heh. I am also crushing on Twilight and bemoaning the fact that I won’t be able to see the movie until it comes out on DVD.
