cloud nine

I ordered these. They came today.
Two words: appropriately named.

Cloud nine caramels by Have it Sweet

These along with my other order (the bourbon pecan one) from the shop resulted in me resolving to be a repeat customer. They even gave me a free sample of the Fleur de Sel caramel, and wow, and yes, and it is amazing.

You know what else makes me happy besides packages of delectable goodies arriving for me in the mail? This picture.

Let me count the ways:
-Piles of rings upon piles of bracelets
-Rad ankle boots x 2
-Kate hudson
-Everyone is staring
-Um, Coachella
-Rad sunglasses x 2
-Flowing locks

It's been a minute and a half since I've posted, so I thought I'd just share a few small obsessions of late.

Peppermint tea has become a regular in my mug recently, due to it's amazing flavor, refreshing sensation, and the fact that it's supposed to be good for digestion which is great cause I've not been the nicest to my stomach lately.

Since I'm on the topic, I should mention my latest drink discovery that I made by accident at Caribou one day when I was driving and in desperate need of a restroom (tmi, perhaps). I swerved into the first place I saw, which was Caribou, and since I'm the pushover type of person who feels guilty just running into a coffee shop and bee-lining for the restroom, I thought it best to hurriedly order a drink first. And what a stroke of luck, I ordered this new iced drink called the Lavender white chocolate mocha. Oh it is so good. On the high from it, I got one daily for the next few days and then thought it best to try to cut back a bit. There's healthier options out there, you know, like McDonald's new caramel Frappés. (ohsoweirdlygood)

Enough about drinks. LimeRaspberryRickey. Really. You'd think I was obsessed.

I had a great time making this mix CD for a swap I participated in. (Swaps are fun!)

And here's the one I got from her:
Isn't it cute? I'm really digging it. Thank you!

It's the season for peonies which just happen to be my favorite flower, so this calls for at least two peony pictures for our viewing pleasure.

Note: It was the season for peonies when I started this post a week or two ago, but now that season is over.

I'm smitten with this Catharine Malandrino necklace, I think it would be the perfect addition to my any summer wardrobe.

And speaking of summer wardrobes, this picture is really stuck in my mind. It's my favorite thing right now. What fantastic layering.


It's gonna be a full summer (already is), but I'm really excited!
