Get on a kick

Do you ever get on a "kick" of something where you kindof obsess about it? Let me share what I'm obsessing about and see if you feel any better about yours. :)

Orange/citrus scented body products.

I don't even know if this shampoo works or is any good but it smells AMAZING so I don't even care (plus I got it for $1.99 at Grocery Outlet so how could I pass that up?). I now have orange bodywash to go with it. I smell like a citrus salad when I get out of the shower.

Oh yeah and my other obsession with dark turquoise! Look at those nails! (and my scarf and my purse and my puffy winter vest and....)

"Why are you out there taking photos of shampoo when you could be playing with me?!"
I'm staying with a friend and this is her little one. :)

Mango & Lychee anything.

I blame Grey for reminding me I love lychee. I had a lychee scented lip balm in gradeschool and it takes me right back to good times. And I love mango everything. I once got a "themed" gift from a friend of a box full of mango flavored food items. It was great!

And then Allison at Epically Epic Soap Co. made a Mango-Lychee lip balm. Gah! Mine is in the mail. :)


Particularly homemade marshmallows. Everything I've heard about homemade marshmallows says they are amazing and a zillion times better than the store bought variety (I plan on trying this recipe.). I so want to try making these and I keep getting foiled in some way before I can start. Soon though. I bought two kinds of ice cream that have marshmallow swirls to comfort me in the meantime. And some marshmallow mocha creamer. And cereal with marshmallows in it.

Chocolate with a kick.

Ever since watching Chocolat I've wanted to try chocolate with chili powder. I found this at Grocery Outlet the other day (G.O. may be another of my obsessions...)

And last year sometime I found this and loved it:

It's not so much spicy as it is warm. Really interesting.

Peppy vintage (or vintage style) music.

Are there some songs you can't stop listening to all of a sudden?

I love the soundtrack from Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day.

And I can't stop listening to [this one] sung by Doris Day.

So, do you feel better about your own quirky obsessions-of-the-moment? :)

Ooh and thanks for all those book recommendations on [this post]! Love them!

I love citrusy bath products and have a lemon bath gel that I love! So refreshing! And music...we watched Mama Mia...AGAIN last night and I am singing those songs today! Enjoy your day! ♥

My obsession(s) are like yours, lol. From the nail polish to the sweets.

I have been on a lipstick kick recently.. ugh not good for the wallet. It turned into trying to make my own gloss... not so good. I guess I'll just stick to eyeshadow for now.

Thanks for the post!

Yes I have cyclical obsessions too! Right now the color is dark hot pink or magenta... love it with gray (in fact my current purse is a cool square gray felt bag with magenta lining from a thrift store), orange spice black tea, chunky knits and my zebra striped tennies! There ya go!

I need some of that lip balm! I don't care that I already have 10 tubes of balm around my home already. I need this balm! The marshmallows look scrumptious too! :)
