What I'm Loving...

It's Friday! The winter blues are getting to me. Anyone else? In an effort to beat this, I'm trying to plan a vacation or 2 for the year. Definitely something for our anniversary, hopefully maybe a little weekend getaway before that. Give me websites and whatever else you use to plan a trip - any ideas of where to go are welcome, too :)
Here's what I'm loving:


Rhinestone Phone Cover
I'm not even going to defend this. It's tacky fabulous. But I'm drawn to anything shiny and sparkly, so I fear there will be more rhinestone covers in my (hopefully soon, just gotta make it to the summer) iPhone future. (I've also been on Crackberry non-stop lately and if you have a BlackBerry, you should be too. Tons of free stuff for your BlackBerry! And if you have a BB, why aren't we BBMing, hmm?)


American Idol
Do I ever put TV shows on here that aren't embarrassing? Apparently not. (My taste in TV isn't all bad, I like Mad Men. And I was addicted to Lost. And when I think of more I'll add those. Anyway.) Whatever, I like American Idol! Last season was pretty disappointing all around, so I'm hoping for better things this season. I don't really like it until they get to the Top 10 or Top 12 or whatever. Once they get to that part I can REALLY start yelling at the TV. (I judge from my living room. I'm really good.) I'm liking the judging changes so far, even though it's just auditions right now. 


Chanel Riva
This is the latest Chanel polish to create a sensation. While the application of the polish is getting not so great reviews, I absolutely love the color and can't think of anything else I've seen exactly like it, but with the price combined with the negative reviews though, I'm on the search for a dupe. I think I've found one, too. I'll update soon :)


Chan Luu
I ordered a Chan Luu wrap bracelet from a Gilt sale in December (here is an invitation link if you don't have one yet) and I've been obsessed ever since it arrived. These are gorgeous! So nice and sparkly and goes with everything and I want about 3 more... Come on Gilt, have another sale!


Ok, so that's What I'm Loving right now! What about you?

I need a vacation! I was planning for Vancouver BC, but we went last year and we're thinking somewhere else. Somewhere nearby for a mini-vacay (maybe Seaside, OR), NYC is the plan for a bigger trip in the fall.

Let's see, your are in AL. Are you hoping to stay nearby? I like to check out TripAdvisor.com for reviews. I'm on the Travelzoo mailing list for deals. There's this Stash Rewards thing I signed up for that's on my sidebar. Haven't used it yet. I can't wait to see what you end up planning because inlove vicariously through others' vacations. Last year we stayed home and put hardwood floors in our bedroom and hallway. Staycation!

Ooh those Chan Luu bracelets are gorgeous! Oh and I have been obsessed about Riva for a while - isn't it a breath of spring?

Josie said...

Those wrap bracelets are DARLING! I love them. Right now I'm loving anything that even VAGUELY gives me hope for the onset of spring. For example, the sun coming out. Wishing you the happiest of weekends, Katie!

Courtney Erin said...

I love those Chan Luu bracelets - they're really lovely! I so want to to take an actual proper vacation (it's seriously been years - I've traveled a lot but always for research and so any sightseeing/fun time was just an added bonus) but I think I'll still have to wait another few years.

Love the Chan luu...and sparkle come-on girl - i'll always be on board, but well maybe not if you rock a studded jersey-shore-esque top, but the BB cover surely!

Vacations...I am dreaming Europe (anywhere), Vegas for a 1-yr wedding, Socal for my 10 yrHS and hopefully our damn honeymoon...That will be beach bound in HOT mexico!

The chan Luu braceletes are gorgeous. Just wish they were not so expensive.

American Idol was kinda disappointing last season but I am not getting Steve Tyler quite yet.

I'm thinking about conducting a reverse cell phone search by going online. I'm receiving these cell phone calls by someone who I really don't know and am interested who they think they are dialing. All sorts of weird texting and also messages are being left on my personal voice mail and it's starting to drive me mad. So, exactly where can i find these reverse cell phone lookup services?
