Top 5: Current Obsessions

by Holly on February 13, 2010

in top 5

In the spirit of being more than just a “food blog,” here are five random things I am totally, completely and absolutely LOVING right now…

  • My Roisin Murphy station on Pandora.  Seriously, this Irish lady knows how to work a beat.  Her music never fails to make me smile and shake my shoulders.

  • My flower-printed rainboots. I don’t where I would have been without them these past couple weeks.

  • My Women Health’s magazine subscription. One of my besties Megan got it for me when I moved to Wisconsin, and I am totally loving their humor, workouts and focus on being a kick a$$ woman!

  • CoverGirl’s Lash Blast Mascara. It works MIRACLES on my wimpy lashes. Seriously.

  • And finally, Eastwind Peanut Butter! At heart, this is obvs a food blog, so how could I not include at least one food product?  This peanut butter is smooth and doesn’t take a turbo-powered crane to stir it up.  Creamy, lovely and nutty, a.k.a. the perfect PB.

What are you totally loving right now? Something, anything…share!

I am tots loving my new toms I just bought to replace my ratty falling apart ones. Not only are they cute and comfy, but for every pair you buy they donate a pair to a child! Not a bad deal!

Gina February 13, 2010 at 8:24 pm

Roisin Murphy – love. Those rainboots? I die.
Right now, I am totally loving, “How I Met Your Mother.” It never fails to make me literally laugh out loud :-)

Agave nectar, specifically Xagave–it’s the only one that taste sweeter than sugar to me

Erica February 13, 2010 at 9:06 pm

I’m a little late on this, but I’m currently loving “Mad Men.” I finished the first season not too long ago and cannot what to see what happens to preggers Peggers in the second season. Also, Don Draper makes me a little dizzy he’s so hot.

Maya February 13, 2010 at 10:02 pm

I am loving being in my room. I’ve been separated from it for a year and a half now, and it is such a great synthesis of all things me. I love spending time in it. Have a wonderful weekend, Holly!

Katie February 13, 2010 at 10:17 pm

gray sweatpants and wool ski socks.

Danielle (Coffee Run) February 13, 2010 at 10:18 pm

I’ve also been loving my rain boots (I wear them more in the snow than in the rain)!
And why haven’t I seen that issue of W.H on shelves?!

The Brunette February 13, 2010 at 10:32 pm

I love this list. I worked at Rodale (the company that publishes WH) over the summer, and getting free copies was such a great perk. And cool rainboots are such a must have. I have BRIGHT YELLOW ones with 2 inch wedges, and every time I put them on, they me happy, which is even more important on a rainy or snowy day.

Carbzilla February 13, 2010 at 11:19 pm

Funny you should ask because today I was totally loving your roasted chickpea recipe. I searched my Reader and there it was – bingo! This morning I was also loving my silicone oven mitts and my adorable mini-colander. (I’m beginning to sound like Steve Martin from The Jerk. I’ll stop now)

Emily (The Experimentarian) February 14, 2010 at 7:34 am

I really like Women’s Health too. It’s a lot less negative than the majority of other women’s mags. Hmmm, currently loving GLEE! KOMBUCHA! My HUSBAND! Love love love. Happy Valentine’s Day! xoxo

Jessica @ How Sweet It Is February 14, 2010 at 7:38 am

I am totally loving the Taylor Dayne station on grooveshark. It’s taken me back to the 90s! :)

Sarah (Running To Slow Things Down) February 14, 2010 at 7:49 am

My mom, who has been watching me morph into a foodie over the past year, sent me a huge package of….

New York Naturals’ Raw Vegan “Kale Chips.”

You need to try these. They are out of this world, especially, the Vegan “Cheese” flavor!

Jenny February 14, 2010 at 5:00 pm

BAH! girlfriend the new page is looking so fly! almost as fly as those stunnah rain boots.

Eastwind PB ya say? never heard of ’em. Worth ordering?!

Jessica February 14, 2010 at 5:34 pm

OMG! Love the new layout, first of all!! But also–I’M loving this bowl of cereal i’m chowing on right now…filled with just some kashi honey sunshine and WF’s brand 365 honey crunches & oats cereal mixed with skim and a dash of pumpkin spice!!

Anna @ Oats N Boats February 14, 2010 at 11:20 pm

I’m digging my newest tea purchase – Teavana Eastern Beauty.
I also love my Joyful Girl Peppermint Lavender Lotion – it makes my hands feel so much better than other lotions <3
Oh and I have to say I love that my animals serve as natural body warmers – my cats curl up on top of me and it's like having a heating pad! It's awesome – cuddles and warmth combined!

Definitely checking out Roisin Murphy – I hadn't heard of the name but when I YouTubed I recognized at least one of the songs.

sam February 15, 2010 at 1:14 pm

right now i’m LOVING up Arcade Fire – especially their album funeral. And as always, I love 30 rock, because I sweat liz lemon.

BroccoliHut February 15, 2010 at 4:05 pm

Excellent obsessions! I’ve always been a big fan of Women’s Health mag:)
My current obsessions include Greek yogurt with Spirutein, skinny jeans, and Boys Like Girls.

Susan February 15, 2010 at 6:50 pm

Oooh, that’s my favourite mascara!! It’s awesome for not washing off at night and wearing to the gym the next morning ;)

Favourite thing right now is protein cookie dough. You were right, it’s delicious and filling and I can’t get enough.

Jenny February 15, 2010 at 7:47 pm

In regards to your last post: I want more V-logs, and honestly, I love their randomness, you share more about your personality that way :)

Also, on the counting cals thing, it definitely drives me nuts…HOWEVER I think it is definitely smart to be “in the know” when it comes to rough estimates…especially when you aren’t doing the food prep, it’s nice to be able to know what you’re getting.

LOVE Pandora stations, I’m adding this one now…and your rain boots are fab! I have some flowery ones from Urban Outfitter that I love. I’m also loving my glasses this week ;)

Brett February 16, 2010 at 1:31 pm

You forgot Johnny!!!! Go Johnny Go.
