I wasted all my critical thinking and cogent writing skills for the week to compose a comment on Lauren’s post.  So instead of something insightful and meaningful, I shall show you what made me happy this week.


My favorite fashion blogger, Reachel from Cardigan Empire, has starting turning out fantastic videos.  I re-figured my figure this week.  Start with this and then go watch the dressing tips for you figure on her YouTube channel.  And then see what style you are!  (I’m definitely Romantic mixed with a little bit of Modern.)  SO FUN!!!

This book was my Mother’s Day Gift from Carter.  I devoured it in two days.  I adore Eliza R. Snow.  This book was the best exposure I’ve had to her poetry ever.  I felt like it failed to highlight some really interesting things about her (I suspect because Deseret Book probably can’t publish accounts of Winter Quarters prayer meetings that the early Relief Society sisters had–far too scandalous), but it was definitely an interesting read.  Especially for an Eliza fan like me.

Cherry Yogurt Pretzels were a revelation this week.  I bought them on a whim at Sprouts and I can’t stop.  They taste kind of like cherry Pop Tarts, but with a delightfully salty zing.  Yum!

A surprise sale at Anthropologie on Saturday helped me pull the trigger on this skirt I have been OBSESSED with online.  I now have something to wear to my sister’s rehearsal dinner in NYC next weekend.  Whew!

And speaking of Anthropologie, have you given any of their playlists on Spotify a try?  They are really groovy.  I put them on while I do housework and feel terribly cool.  It’s a great mix and would be perfect for a party (minus the commercials that get played).

And, finally, I think I found my go-to summer nail polish in E-Nuf is E-Nuf by Essie.  This picture isn’t doing it justice.  It’s the perfect mix of coral and hot pink.

So what about you?  What were you obsessed with this week?
