Hello Darlings, its summer and I’m overdosing on backyard fun including grilling, pooltime and games. It seems like a great time to present a Summer 2014 update to my series: Over it/Into It. Except for one change, I’m over the over it section. It’s so much more fun to talk about what I’m obsessing about. So, lets focus on that.
Floating Luxuries(R) Bean Bag Pool Floats – Best float ever!
Grilling Greens – Especially Romaine, Cabbage & Artichoke
Pentaque – Bocce with metal balls.
New Orleans Jazz – Unexpected and fun music sets the tone for fun summer nights
Outdoor Ambient Lighting – hanging lanterns, torches, twinkly lights
CeraVe Face Sunscreen – SPF 50, goes on non-greasy, light enough to wear under makeup
Docu-series – I couldn’t get enough of Oprah’s Lindsey Lohan documentary or the True Tori expose.
MTV – Yes, I’m old enough to remember when MTV actually showed music videos. Doesn’t mean I don’t love Catfish, Awkward and True Life.
The Mindy Project – Mindy’s character is charming, imperfect and quirky. She’s a doll.
Pretty Little Liars –Catching up on this series from the beginning is my summer guilty pleasure.
Crema – And, thanks to Bobby Flay, roasted jalapeno crema especially.
Penzey’s Spices – Fox Point Seasoning in scrambled eggs, lemongrass in stir fry, cinnamon on oatmeal & curry on asparagus.
Strawberry Huller – I’m popping strawberries like candy with this fun gadget.
Chili Lime Nuts from Trader Joe’s – Try them & you’ll know.
Berry Flavored Balsamic Vinegar – Strawberry, Cherry: makes a super delicious dressing.
Bottle Green Elderflower Syrup – Sadly not distributed in the U.S. my husband has to smuggle it back from Europe. Makes a delicious soda when mixed with sparkling water.
Australian Licorice – lets get serious, I love licorice of all stripes, but this soft chewy version is especially delish.
Lorna Jane activewear – This Australian import is bright, functional and addictive. I especially love the tights, tops, sports bras…wait, I love everything.
Working out while listening to Ted Talks – Granted there is no beat, but the time flies.
Cool Down Towel – Because it is HOT in the summer.
