Currently Obsessed

I am deep in cabin fever/wintertime dullness/complete loss of creativity. I need a change in schedule here, which is happening tomorrow with my parents coming for a visit, the little man's first birthday, and an unexpected vacay to the warm sun. I may not be writing as frequently during this time, but when I do find something great to share I promise to get on it. Writing for all of you is honestly what helps spur my creativity, but during this February slump it is hard to come up with anything fun. 

When things become pretty Groundhog Day-ish, I feel like I get obsessed with certain things and stick to them. It could be a food, or tv show, a new blog, or a beauty routine, but I see myself obsessed with a few things right now I thought I would share. 

ModelCo Fibre Lashxtend Mascara 

This mascara came in my Birchbox a few months back and I LOVE it. I like to curl my lashes and then brush on a few light coats during the day. It is light and looks so natural, yet it mimics the effect of false lashes. The perfect daytime mascara. It has little fibers that stick to the ends of your lashes and extends them. Genius. 

Creamy Macaroni & Cheese

I had a childhood love of Velveeta shells and cheese. I wanted to find a recipe that was closer to from scratch then from a box. This recipe is by no means healthier or even that much better (It includes a can of cheddar cheese soup, still processed), but the fact that I know what goes in it, makes me feel better. It is creamy and delicious. I have made it a few times and it is perfect on a cold day. 

Buttermilk Pancakes

The little guy can eat pancakes now, which is a great excuse to start the day with syrup. This recipe from Matha Stewart is perfection. I have it on heavy rotation. 

Downton Abbey

Duh. If you are not watching this show, get on it. If you are into TV "binges" this is the perfect way to spend a cold weekend. 

And I hate to admit this, but I still watch the Bachelor. Have seen every season, have watched all the tears, all the "journeys," wasted hours and hours of my time, but I cannot help to love this show and Chris Harrison. 

This is Sean, the 407th Bachelor. He is looking for his wife and is not afraid to tell everyone, then dump her "After the Final Rose" airs. 

Check out Melissa's weekly recaps on her blog, Fonty Fest. They are hilarious and so right on. 

Speaking of sites to visit, Sous Style is one of the newest on my Bookmark list. 

Home. Cooking. Rad interviews. A little of everything and totally worth the time suck. 

Lastly, the sweet treat you need to get a bag of and keep at your desk this week. 

Watermelon Sour Patch Kids

And that pretty much sums up my life right now. Food and entertainment. Do you need anything more? 

Have a happy week. xo
