It has been almost 7 weeks since our sweet little girl was born. I knew that blogging was going to take a back seat for a while, but I’m slowly getting back to real life. (In-between breastfeeding every two hours and getting sucked into the cute-baby-in-my-arms time warp, of course.) Although it’s incredibly tempting, it’s important for me to not completely loose myself to mommyhood. After 6 full weeks I’ve started hitting the gym, which is incredibly embarrassing as I struggle to waddle/run a half mile tops! And now I’m ready to start thinking about my own interests again, too! What better place to start than with my current obsessions?! But first…
There’s my sweet girl checking out the painting I made for her nursery! She’s my number one obsession these days.
On to the rest, though…
A few weeks ago I reached out to my Facebook world to see what kind of cleansing/moisture routine they were in love with. I was ready to adopt a new routine, and now I’m obsessed!!!
I know I’m super late coming into the Clarisonic game but oh well, better late than never. I seriously love this thing. I got the Mia 1. Confession time….I hate washing my face. Aside from in the shower, I never used to wash my face. Something about splashing water in my face with a little bit of cleanser just felt like a waste of time, but this thing makes washing my face seem absolutely necessary. It’s made my face so much smoother and softer. I’m a big big fan!
Perricone products came recommended to me so I thought, “Why not?” I really love these products. My face is looking fantastic! Is that vain? Probably…but I figure I’m allowed to be excited about it. Perricone sold me on their packaging alone. Isn’t it pretty?
I’ve started a new leather hobby. I’ve now made 2 purses and a wallet. And while they are no where near as beautiful as the purse pictured above, I’m working towards making some really legit and beautiful leather goods. The whole thing has me totally obsessed with all leather hand bags. I love how classy and timeless this one is!
It’s no secret I’m obsessed with white! I’m loving these white on white or white on cream looks. I’m really going to need to get some white jeans and ASAP! I figure I better get my fill of the white on white look before Jolie is slinging around food. Breast milk is a creamy color. I can totally pull off this look for at least the next 6 months!
Let’s be real, though. It’s going to take a special occasion for me to put on real pants these days. I hardly ever leave the house. When I do, it’s usually to the gym and right back.
I am totally obsessed with work out gear these days, and my favorite place to buy it is at TJ Maxx. They have a ton of reasonable stuff online and in stores.
I’m obsessed with fingernail polish in general.
These matte gray nails are the absolute best, though! I have about every color in the book, but I don’t have a matte gray polish….Must. Get!!
I’m loving long duster jackets. This one from Forever21 is awesome, and I’m sure it’s cheap too! I have my very own Forever21 duster jacket, except mine is camel instead of this cream. Is is bad that I want this one too?!
This console table has me obsessed for soooo many reasons. Where do I even start? First of all, I’m in love with how the decor is generally monochromatic. So pretty. Next up, the baskets are to die for, but mostly this picture has me coveting a clear acrylic table. I’ve always always wanted one, but never saw it fitting into my style until now. I’ll be on the hunt now. I can promise you that!
Every new mommy has to get a haircut. It’s some sort of weird right of passage. I swore I wouldn’t do it, but then I wouldn’t be a really mommy now would I?
I’ve been obsessed with long bobs, “lobs” if you will, for over a year now. I just couldn’t find the guts to do it. It’s been years since my hair has been this short. I’m still working on how to style it, but I do love it! I’m obsessed with it on these celebs!
So there it is….all my current obsessions!
