Things I Like: New Year Edition

I haven’t done one of these in a while, so this might be long. I don’t know if it’s because I”m still basking in the post-Holidays glow, but I’m reveling in all things luxury and comforting right now.

But then, when am I not?

Kindle Fire

Oh how I pitched a fit when e-book/e-readers started making their emergence. I’m a book girl! I love the touch, the smell, the experience of a book! But slowly, bookstores have started closing, making one of my favorite pastimes (Saturday/Sunday morning with a latte in the bookstore) a rare occasion. And then I found myself with a Kindle (Christmas present from amazing boyfriend) and I haven’t put it down. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve found myself unable to sleep at 1AM, with a finished book, and BAM! I’ve got a new one with the click of a button. Also – it has wifi. I can listen to Pandora while reading or take a quick break and play on Facebook. Or Fruit Ninja…

Anyway. I love it. I’m obsessed with it. Apart from my iphone, I think it’s my favorite piece of technology/thing-I-don’t-really-need-but-don’t-want-to-live-without!

Balenciaga Paris Perfume

It’s ladylike and sophisticated, but not cloying and I love the way the scent ‘wears’ during the day. I think it might be my favorite scent. Also, the bottle is deliciously art deco. I believe it’s exclusively available at Neiman Marcus. (Note: did you know that Neimans excepts ALL credit cards now? Not just their card and American Express. Danger! Danger!)

Smoked Gouda

I’m a girl. This is Cheese. We were made for eachother.

Hello, lover.

Homemade Pizza

I add a ton of arugula/spinach and call it health food.

Also, it’s cheap. And easy.

Glitter Ballet Flats from Ann Taylor

I swear that 1) these would go with everything in my closet, 2) that I would wear them everyday and 3) they would change my life.

I’m a size  6 1/2, in case you’re wondering 🙂

P.s. Anyone have any good book recommendations? Always looking for one – especially a good historical fiction/biographies!

  1. I, too, thought I would never switch from “real” books to e-books, but now I’m in love with them! Congrats on the Kindle Fire! That’s on my wish list!
