tuesday ten ~ current obsessions

obsessed is the only way to describe my ♥ for my ten this week. some of these i've been in love with for awhile, but for the others my obsession has just recently taken form.

1 ~ navy blue sparkly nail polish. blue + sparkles = ♥♥ i especially love that these remind me of what i think the universe looks like. :) *sorry couldn't do this one in black & white for obvious reasons!*

2 ~ braids. since my mane is out of hand, and i still can't cut it... i am relying heavily on braids to keep things in check or at least give the illusion of it. i've nailed the fishtail down to a science.

3 ~ the other guy. i am pretty big fan of vampire diaries, and when watching it, i can't help but root for damon. aka the other guy. my mister actually pointed out that i ALWAYS root for the other guy/girl. i personally think they are misunderstood and deserve happiness too :) p.s. ian somerhalder is also a big environmental activist, so i root for him outside of the show as well. check out his twitter.

4 ~ faux fur anything. i love little animals too much to wear real fur, but i am ok only if it's a vintage. it's already been done, so i guess don't waste it. (it's a contradiction... i know, but still.) also, not sure i could wear this faux fur hat in LA, but i have big hearts for it.

5 ~ vintage style rings. my ring obsession is a little out of control in general, but currently i've at least focused it on the vintage look. note: real vintage is preferred.

6 ~ the gym. did i really just type that?? yes... crazy i know! i would never have thought i would list that either. but i started going with the mister, and ended up there more times in the past couple weeks than i probably have in my entire existence. i just hope it's sticks, even though i literally hate almost every minute of it, i feel better after. (that is after i shower, guzzle water, and eat an oreo...jk about the oreo, i've been eating that with every breakfast this week.)

7 ~ grandfather clocks. i want an old vintage one, and i am obsessed with finding the perfect grand daddy that i can paint white for our bungalow. absolutely no idea where said future grandfather clock will fit... but i am highly determined to make it work.

8 ~ mojitos. normally, i tequila. i can never deny a good margarita, but all of the sudden i made the switch to mojitos. i especially ♥ berry versions, but i'll take a regular any time. the only problem is how quickly they are gone.

9 ~ netflix app. since i have some insomnia ~ i have fallen in love with netflix on my iphone. when i wake up in the middle of the night, i don't want to wake the mister, so i end up putting in my ear buds and watching movies until i fall back asleep. it helps me and lets the mister sleep. amazing.

10 ~ my planner. i could easily use my phone calendar, but it's not the same. i like to pencil things in, write important plans in pen, cross things out, put hearts by date nights, yada yada... it keeps me sane, and actually keeps me moving. i completely rely on it to stay organized so if i ever lose it... yikes!

i stopped watching vampire diaries when it made me jump and i spilled my wine. it was a little scary... well, not scary but suspenseful and then.... BOO! although, i may have to just suck it up, and get to watching again!

That nail polish is so pretty! I have found that it is hard to find a sparkly nail polish that seems smooth and looks good, and it looks like you found it!
I like braids and vintage rings too....and Ian Somerhalder! I liked him in Lost :)

Love the fishtail braids... they look great and are so easy to do... unfortunately, I don't have enough hair to make one look decent but I do them for my daughter, who luckily was blessed with her Dad's thick hair! xo

I don't like real fur either; however just like you, I'll use vintage. The damage has been done.

Oh, I love your blog. Having a frustrating couple of weeks, and stopped by to see what you are up to.
