weekend favorites

Wow, can you believe June is already here?!
 2012 is almost half over!

I just wanted to show you a few of my favorites right now- everything from food, Pinterest, Etsy, and summer time stuff!

I recently replaced my makeup bag, and I just love this one from Target.  The colors, Pucci style design, and gold zippers....plus the square design holds a lot more of my stuff than the pouch I had before.
It was $12.99.

I am also loving the new nail color I picked up (same day).  Normally I don't do a lot of color on my nails- with all of the painting and sanding I'm usually doing- it's so chipped within hours, what's the point?
The sacrifice of redoing my nails more often is worth it for this one!

This one is a pretty periwinkle color by Essie, and is called Bikini So Teeny.
Ha ha! I love everything about it!
Periwinkle is such a fun word to say too.
Let's move on to the tasty stuff.
I have a few favorites in this category right now.
First off, my new favorite coffee creamer:

I really look forward to getting up in the morning and getting a hit of this in my beverage!
I love peppermint mocha flavored creamer, but this is just a little different.  It really does taste like a York peppermint patty- light on the chocolate, with a big refreshing mint flavor.

Trader Joes always has the best stuff don't they?
We are devouring their roasted plantain chips.

These are NOT sweet like banana chips, which I am not a fan of.
They are salty and taste just like a potato chip.
My only complaint is that they need to come in a bigger bag!

I heart this wine so much.  We've been drinking more red wine lately, and this is a true favorite.  There are a couple varieties that I love- Tuscan Moon and Old Moon.  Both are so smooth and flavorful.  Tuscan has a juicy berry flavor, and Old Moon is a bit more tart.  We served Tuscan Moon at my bday party, and several people were asking for the name afterwards.



Favorite pins from this week:

This had me cracking up! so true!

I am always looking for styling ideas, since it's not my forte.
(yet. Hoping to improve on that with practice...)
I loved the shelves and styling from A Country Farmhouse.
It was also featured in Country Living this last year.

Etsy shops:

 The Queen's Diamond Jubilee is this week, and I can't stop thinking about this print I saw on Etsy.
I so want it!

Visual Philosophy, Etsy
This shop has lots of bright, colorful (or should I say, colourful?) prints with a contemporary, pop art feel. Really love love.

I also discovered this shop a couple nights ago, and adore the style and products.
Helkatdesigns is a UK designer, and the richness and unique quality to her pillows made me swoon.  I am saving my pennies for one of these beauties for our new settee!

I hope you are enjoying your weekend, and getting lots of resting / projects/ family time in
(whatever you're wanting!)

What are your favorites?

  1. Love your new nail colour! I have something similar but I only wear it on my toes. Maybe I'll wear it on my fingers this week for a change.... : )

    I'll have to look for the coffee creamer. I've been using other flavours to change the taste of my homemade iced coffees. This minty version would be so good - and refreshing!


Thanks for taking the time to leave me a note!
