Healthy & Delicious Food

Fresh Basil
Olive Oil
Salt & Pepper

That's it.  It the most simple thing you could possibly make besides boiling water.  And what kind of snack is boiling water?  I guess you could throw a cigarette in there and make it "a runway model's snack" the day before fashion week.  My friend has an herb garden and gave me the basil.  It smelled heavenly, I almost didn't want to eat them, but just sniff them.  

This can be duplicated for about $7 unless my friend gives you some basil, then it's even cheaper.

Gold-tone Ceramic Vase

It looks better in person, I promise.  I found 2 of these uber chic and pretty cool vases at Target.  In a mad rush to put the finishing touches on our home before our Open House/housewarming party I found this vase in a small and large.  They are prefect by the fireplace together.  They offer just the right amount of visual interest and color the room needed.  My whole point of going to Target was to pick up a new Welcome mat and instead I came home with about $147 worth of STUFF.  These 2 vases being part of the quickie shopping trip.  

Large is $45 and small is $30

Kate Spade China

Soooooooooooo... I didn't want china on my wedding registry.  NOPE, not doing china, I am NOT into china.  UNTIL............   I found THIS china.  Soon I was singing a different tune.  I NEED THIS CHINA, I MUST HAVE THIS CHINA.  I WANT THIS CHINA.  And let me tell ya, people LOVE to buy you china when you are getting married.  So here it is in all it's glory.  THE CHINA.  Isn't she pretty?  So pretty that I hate to mess it all up with food and stuff.  Kate Spade did me right with this pattern.  It's cool, whimsical yet still simple enough.  

Does this mean I have to make fancy dancy meal to serve on this china?  Nah....

Hello Kitty

Hello Kitty, Good-Bye paycheck!
If I could, I would spend my entire paycheck on Hello Kitty stuff.  She is so cute.  How can you not look at Hello Kitty and not want to cry?  It's pretty easy to go nutso on HK stuff since now you can  find her anywhere.  From umbrellas to assault rifles, she is everywhere.  But I like the traditional HK stuff-- this design posted above is the best.  I almost put a HK toaster and rice cooker on my wedding registry but decided to just keep her out of my marriage.  My husband is fine with the cutesy stuff here and there but a HK toaster on the counter could be a bit too much.  Plus, I wouldn't want to actually use them because then I would get them dirty and Kitty doesn't roll that way.  ( But what's my excuse now for not using my non HK kitchen appliances?)

I loved Hello Kitty since I was a little girl.  I would hoard my HK pencils, stationary, tissues, erasers and stapler and never used them, in fact I still have many of them still unused. Someday.

Hello Kitty items range from $1.00 to $1,000,000,000.00,  so take that however you like.

If my husband reads this blog this picture is for him, my birthday is Dec. 10th or Christmas, whatever.  Just saying.

CO Bigelow Lip Gloss

Pucker up, Ladies!  Show off your pout with CO Bigelow's lip gloss.  It'll make any face bee-utiful.  The minty ones are the best because they not only are lip glosses BUT hello! breath savers as well.  Since most gloss ends up in your mouth anyway, shouldn't it taste great and freshen your breath?  

There are tinted ones as well that are pretty gosh darn fabu. I buy them in bulk when they go on sale at Bath & Body Works.  I have about 4 that rotate around in my various purses, a few at my desk, some in the pockets of my jeans in the wash right now, but I never leave them in my car in Phoenix because the heat will cause it to combust and then it's wasted-- and if you have good gloss like this, then you best not waste it.  Leave your craptastic Vaseline tube in the 140 degree Phoenix car instead.  Your lips will thank you.

$7.50 unless you get it on sale at Bath & Body Works for a bargain at $3 a piece.
