Obsessions

I can not believe July is almost half over already!! Where is the summer going? Here are my weekly obsessions, I should probably add dreaming about cooler weather to the list!

STRIPES
Lately I have been loving stripes. I love to wear them and to decorate with them. I am seriously considering doing stripes when I do Sterling's big boy room.

NAAN WHOLE WHEAT BREAD
We love this stuff in our household. I make pizzas on it at least once a week. It is so easy to saute some veggies, add pizza sauce and fresh mozzarella, bake for a few minutes and you have a delish healthy pizza. It is also tasty heated with olive oil, salt and pepper dipped in hummus. I buy mine at Harris Teeter because they have the wheat kind but Costco sells big packs of the regular Naan.





KELLY RIPA'S DVF DRESS
Ever since seeing Kelly wear this dress last week on Live with Regis and Kelly I have been obsessed. Love it, sadly it is pretty much sold out every where. I did see this shorter version at Shopbop but I think I love the long version more!







CUPCAKE WINE
I bought a bunch of this wine for my supper club last week and had quite a bit leftover that I have been enjoying. I forgot how tasty this wine is. For the price you can't go wrong. It is $8.99 at the grocery store but at Costco it is only $7.50. I love both the Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. They are the perfect summer wine.




KENDRA SCOTT DANIELLE EARRINGS
Ever since Monda (from the Daily Stroll) emailed me the link to these gorgeous earrings, I have been dreaming about them! Problem is I can't decide what color to order them in, they are all gorgeous. I am thinking turquoise or salmon. Her website has fabulous jewelry and if you enter your email address you get 20% off your entire purchase.

BIRT AND TANG DETOX TEA
I just recently found this tea and love it. I have been drinking it at night to curb my desire to eat dessert. Milk thistle is supposed to be so good for your liver and mine can use all the help it can get.

And....yet again....I'm obsessing over your obsessions!

I think Cupcake wine is the best grocery store white wine that I have found this entire summer. It's not too sweet and for the price, you just can't beat it.

I adore Kelly's DVF. She wears DVF very well.

And....last point! I really want those blue Kendra Scott earrings but I'm a little hesitant because heavy earrings bug me all day long. If you end up biting the bullet and purchasing the pretty gems, you'll have to give me an update.

I have those KS earrings and absolutely love them. And that wine sounds perfect and who doesnt love something named after a dessert.

Great obsessions! Stripes are so fun, would love to try that wine (is it as good as it sounds?), and Kelly Ripa's dress is adorable!

KatiePerk said...

You were the first person to tell me about Cupcake being at Costco! Love it too! Have you ever grilled Naan? I like it like that too with cucumbers, tomatoes and olive oil on it!

Pinot after Playdates said...

love the salmon KS earrings...I think you'd be less likely to stumble across something more "similar" with that color....where are you buying that tea? The summer always leaves my liver a little overworked too!!

Great obsessions!!!!! but....wait.....there is cupcake wine?!?! I must try this asap!!!

The Southland Life said...

As usual, love it all - I can't get enough of stripes!

Jill said...

I am loving your list again. I love the idea of stripes for a big boy room, love the naan bread, the DVD dress is fabulous long but I am not completely loving the short version, and my fridge is stocked full of cupcake wine!

Hello from the train to chicago

I am loving stripes! I want to paint stripes in a nursery someday (not prego yet!). And how have I not heard of cupcake wine?! I need to get me some soon :)

Chicago Mom (Heather) said...

I always buy Cupcake wine! I bought a bottle of the Cupcake Red Velvet too. It's been to hot to drink it but I'll let you know how it is. :-)

Courtney {a thoughtful place} said...

Great list. I am obsessed with stripes as well . . . I like to wear them, look at them, paint them, sit on them. It's bad. Love the dress and Cupcake wine as well. Happy Tuesday!

natasha {schue love} said...

Oh I've been trying to find naan everywhere! So glad to hear Costco carries it! I've heard it's great for pizzas and hummus. And I LOVE those Kendra Scott earrings...I too, would have a hard time choosing what color. They're all so pretty! :)

I'm with you on the stripe obsession! I wish I was bold enough to do them on one of the walls in my house!

Taylor said...

I've been buying that cupcake wine at our Jewel grocery stores here too! Love the label on the bottle. And navy and white stripes are my obsession... that zara dress that Atlantic-Pacific (Bee?) wears is my obsession of the month!!!

Virginia Belle said...

I love Cupcake wine. Their Sauvignon Blanc has become my go to Summer wine! I have the Turquoise Danielle earrings and absolutely love them. Thanks for sharing the 20% off tip, I love her stuff!

California Wife said...

Loving your obsessions this week! Kelly Rippa's DVF dress is gorgeous, perfect for summer! I've purchased those Kendra Scott earrings for gifts several times, but am yet to get some for myself. They're on my wish list!

The Daily Stroll said...

Love all your obsessions this week :-)Thanks for the mention. You will be very happy with your Kendra Scott purchase. The coral earrings are very pretty too!
Have a great week!

I have those earrings in turquoise and I love them! You will not find a better turquoise statement piece then those earrings. :) I will have to pick up that wine at my next Costco run! Thanks!

Sarah@totalbassetcase said...

I LOVE cupcake wine! It is so yummy and cheap: best deal ever!

I, too, am obsessed with stripes. I just noticed the other day that almost every shirt Ive bought recently is striped and/or coral. Oops! Ha!

Happiness Is... said...

That DVF dress is hot!

Gaby [The Vault Files] said...

I'm a stripe-aholic, really bad must say. I used to buy naan in Toronto a lot and make the same as you do, it's just so easy to make a meal around it! The dress: like the shorter one better, but that's just my opinion ;)

Michaela said...

Oh my! I'm obsessed with stripes in fashion and interiors, too. So J. Crew (:

Sundresses and Smiles said...

I LOVE stripes and think they would be perfect for Sterling's room and would still be "cool" down the road when he's older. I also love Kelly's dress--I wish her cut came in a shorter version and love those earrings!

Natalie said...

i love stripes in a kid's room! i'm contemplating stripes for my nursery and i'm not even pregnant...yet. :)
