in obsessions,top 5

Goody Doublewear Elastics. Umm…why didn’t I think of this?! A ponytail holder + stylish bracelet all in one. These are never leaving my wrist…that is unless they’re going in my hair.

Mama Pea’s Sunshine Kale Salad. I made this vitamin A-packed salad last Friday night and since then, have made it two more times. One of those times, I downed an entire bushel of kale in a sitting. The recipe boasts the most amazingly addictive dressing made with tahini, lemon juice, chili powder, garlic, nutritional yeast and a pinch of stevia. Sooooo gooooddddddddd.

Rolling Stone by Jay Rock f/ Kendrick Lamar.¬†Thanks to my friend Chris, I’ve been busting this jam out on repeat for about five days now. Not only is this song set to The Zombies “Time of the Season” (<- such a good background beat!) but it is just so damn infectious. And my homeboy Kendrick Lamar raps his a$$ off. What can I say? I love me some good rap.


Blood oranges. Seriously, is there anything more gorgeous? I recommend utilizing this winter citrus variety with my Blood Orange Curd Tart…or Angharad’s Blood Orange Buck’s Fizz adult beverages…or Jess’ Blood Orange Sugared Scones. Soon, you’ll be just as obsessed as I am.

Une Deux Senses. I am obsessed with Michelle’s blog. She doesn’t post often…but when she does, think Mint Lemon Drop cocktails and mixtapes with amazing artists you’ve never heard of and stunningly gorgeous photography and fun manicure tutorials (want these shattered glass nails¬†on my fingers, like now) and Red Velvet Pancakes. Yes, red velvet pancakes. Need I say more?

What are you totally loving right now? Something…anything…remember, sharing is caring!

I am so excited to try that kale salad…I have everything on hand. I flipping love it when that happens!

And I’m obsessed with The Rockstar Diaries (a blog) right now. I can’t stop.

Robyn @ Blueberries and Oats January 31, 2012 at 11:42 pm

I’m loving the book I’m reading, The Night Circus, and going to sleep in my queen sized bed alone! (well surrounded by 3 kittens but still able to sleep in the dead center)

Erin February 1, 2012 at 1:04 am

Traveling! Right now I’m in Cairo, Egypt and today we leave for Abu Dhabi, UAE. Also- scarves, my husband and I just bought a ton here. And finally, scones! Definitely can’t get those in China, so I’ve been devouring baked goods here.

I love those hairbands since I always have an ugly one around my wrist!

I am loving the fact that it’s 60 degrees in February right now. I will take this weather all winter long.

Sarah@The Flying ONION February 1, 2012 at 6:31 am

I love that it’s 40 degrees and in FEBRUARY right now (last year, I was running through blizzards…this is a change I like. ;) )

I’m also loving my cup of coffee and the fact that I have a prospective job interview coming up…*keeping fingers crossed*!!

Im obsessed with rice porridge, green curry and steamed fish. Alloy mat mah

Katie B. February 1, 2012 at 7:03 am

Other than your blog, which always makes me laugh and leaves me with a good bit of perspective on the important things in life (i.e. stylish hairbinders & red velvet anything), I am loving county music & shopping for denim shirts right now in anticipation of a trip to Nashville next weekend! Yeehaw, Happy February Miss Holly :-)

Hillary February 1, 2012 at 7:28 am

The fact that it is 65 degrees in Baltimore is pretty fabulous.
Trader Joe’s green curry simmer sauce. I ate some out of the jar with a spoon.
Game of Thrones. I’ve been obsessed with the books for about six months now, and it continues. I cannot get enough!

Katie @ Peace Love & Oats February 1, 2012 at 9:24 am

that salad dressing sounds amazing! I need to get some more kale at TJ’s today…

emily (a nutritionist eats) February 1, 2012 at 9:53 am

So many things, but currently, new camera lens!

Laura @ Sprint 2 the Table February 1, 2012 at 10:50 am

I’m with you on the blood orange obsession. I added them to my citrus chickpea cilantro salad with some avocado the other day. *love*

Jessica February 1, 2012 at 6:06 pm

Lindsay @ Lindsay's List February 1, 2012 at 8:06 pm

Jordan February 1, 2012 at 9:37 pm

I just registered for my first Tough Mudder race (September 29th), so I pretty much have been obsessing about that; what workouts to try, what equipment to buy, etc.

Joy February 2, 2012 at 9:46 am

I’m loving on the fact that I have a niece in graphic design who thinks doing my nails is fun

Madeline - Greens and Jeans February 3, 2012 at 8:42 am

I’m loving the fact that I’m home more this month!

Lauren @ The Climbing Chef February 3, 2012 at 1:28 pm

Currently, I’ve been obsessed with rice cakes. There is a local organic rice farm about 15 miles from me and they make the BEST rice cakes. Flavors like: honey nut, sweet mochi, seaweed and Tamari, While rice, etc. There are like 15 different flavors and I LOVE all of them :) Besides that, just the usual… coffee, art, blogging, your blog, oranges, custard oats, etc. :) HAPPY FRIDAY HOLLY!!

Lindsey February 4, 2012 at 3:50 pm

THERE IS SUN! ITS MID 50’s! I went on a run this morning… with no outerwear! eee so rare for seattle, I’ve been loving this weather.

Also, I had your custard oats approx. six times last week. one of those times may or may not have been for dinner. so I think that may count as an obsession too, no? why I haven’t tried them before, I will never know.

Christie February 4, 2012 at 9:27 pm

LOVING those hair bands! So stylish.

Right now I’m loving a heaping spoonful of peanut butter in my oats. Yum! When I make my breakfast at work, people think it’s so weird….but in the blog world it’s totally normal, right?!

Stacy @ Say It With Sprinkles February 5, 2012 at 9:40 pm

Kale & blood oranges – 2 things I’m completely obsessed with right now!!
