All Things Awesome This Week


Even though my blog is just a (premature?) newborn, I am planning a few reoccurring features.  One being a weekly recap of all things awesome in my world. 

This may be a bad week to start, since it was a kind of a crappy long week.  Work was tiresome and it was very hot and humid here in Boston.  And anyone that knows me knows that I hate the heat.  I become a hermit in the summer time, preferring the air conditioned indoors to anything involving above 80 degree temps.  So needless to say, I was a BITCH this week.  Not much made me happy.  That being said, this will be a short list, but I promise some day soon I'll put my big girl panties on and stop mooping.
  • Since Sunday was Father's Day, we took my dad to eat at one of his favorite places to get fish and chips overlooking Plymouth Bay.  While is was exceptionally warm this week, it was FREEZING last Sunday especially on the water.  While we shivered during lunch, it was worth it when we stopped next door for the best cupcakes ever.  The funfetti cupcake I brought home was one of the highlights of my week.

  • I am very opinionated when it comes to mixing certain things together.  I firmly believe that coffee (whether cold, hot or frozen) and whipped cream do not mix, fruit does not belong anywhere near my chocolate, and coconut just shouldn't exist.  I believe even more firmly than anything that the number one cardinal rule is NEVER EVER mix fruit with beer.  I was broke that rule this week and discovered Leinenkugel's Summer Shandy.  It's like equal parts Bud Light and lemonade.  What's not to love?!?
  • Mad Men.  I just started watching it a few months ago on Netflix, but it is turning into one of my favorite shows.  I am currently on Season 4 and with a lazy weekend with not many plans, I have already been able to get 3 episodes in today alone.
  • Not so much something that made me happy, but something I really really want; www.lipstickshades.com has some some pretty amazing iPhone cases that you can customize with your initials and choice of backroom images.  They run about $60, which is why I haven't purchased one.  Maybe something; I just can't justify spending that much when I switch up my phone case every other day.  (I am OBSESSED with iPhone cases)
  • I love perfume.  I have ever since I was a child when my mother would spray her Chanel on my sister and I.  I think I was the only 7 year old in the second grade that wore perfume to school on a regular basis.  I usually stay between 2 or 3 different scents.  Lately I have been wearing Salvatore Ferragamo Attimo L'Eau Florale, but was reminded this week how much I LOVE TOCCA Eau de Parfum Stella.  Stella was the sole reason I started obsessing over blood orange when I first started wearing it a few years ago, and now it is back in my rotation. 

So that is it for my awesome things this week.  What were the places, faces or items that rocked your world?
