Loving Lately

Here are a few things I'm currently loving.

Mezzo Mix Lip Smacker-
Mezzo Mix is this amazing tasting German soda that is a mix of Cola and Orange soda. When a friend posted this on her facebook, I knew I had to have it. I bought this for 2€ at our grocery store and I can't get enough of it! I may have to buy a whole case of these before we leave Germany.

J. Crew Factory Warmspun Intarsia Hen Sweater-
How cute is this?

Vera Bradley Grand Traveler-
I am finally heading back to the States in October (can.not.wait) and since I am flying solo this time and don't have a husband to schlep all of my things for me, I have been looking at getting a spinner suitcase and a travel bag that functions as a large carry-on that has a trolley sleeve. I am borrowing a suitcase from a friend and will be purchasing a Vera Bradley Grand Traveler for myself before my trip.

Lego Salt and Pepper Shakers-
Our first winter in Germany, Terry and I spotted these in the Lego store in Frankfurt. I love cute, quirky, fun salt and pepper shakers and fell in love with these. I mean, you can stack these two! And they were only 5€! My husband being the party pooper said no and that maybe he'd get them for me for Hanukkah. By the time Hanukkah rolled around, they were sold out in every single freaking Lego store in the whole entire world. Way to drop the ball on that one. He frantically tried scouring eBay but they were going for obscene amounts on there. I can not justify paying $25-30 for something that originally cost $5/5€. I randomly decided to go on the Lego website recently and I discovered that they are back baby!!! Can't wait until they get here.

this adorable Ibis commercial-

Ibis, a European budget hotel chain, put out this commercial recently. They put 30 bunnies in a room on the top floor of their London hotel and filmed them just being cute and doing bun-ish things on top of a fluffy bed. I dare you to watch this without saying "awwwwwwwwwwwww." It really does make me want to stay in an Ibis now.

New York State Necklace from Prep Obsessed-
When I first saw that Prep Obsessed started carrying state necklaces, I knew I had to have one. In case the Lilly Pulitzer New York city Murfee scarf and bangle and New York Yankees baseball cap didn't make it blatantly obvious where I'm from, I had to get this as well. Can't wait to get mine. (If you would like to get one of your own or anything else from Prep Obsessed, you can use coupon code PGMW for 10% off your order.)

Monogram Salt & Pepper Shaker set from C. Wonder
I'm pretty sure this was designed specifically with me in mind.

What are you loving lately?


  1. Love the J.crew Sweater and the NYS necklace!

  2. I need the mezzo mix lip smackers. I miss mezzo mix!!!

  3. Oo, I like that Vera Bradley, I've been trying to track down a Large Duffel in Elizabeth, but so far no luck. Sigh. Although something with wheels would be infinitely handier on a plane!


  4. That grand traveler bag looks awesome. May have to be my next travel bag!
