I went to church with my fam, had a little fam time at lunch, and then went for a super long drive with Eric...one of our very favorite things to do. It was a relaxing and lovely Easter Sunday.
There are so many little tidbits buzzing around in my head that I want to talk about, so I'm just going to word vomit them all into one post. Deal?
Here's what's currently on my radar:
1. Viktor & Rolf Bonbon
Some of you may know this already, but I lost my sense of smell when I was 8 years old, and it didn't return until fall 2013. For those of you keeping track, that's 17 years without smelling anything. To be honest, the first few things I smelled were so overwhelming and distracting that I had to remove myself from the area. I just wasn't used to it. Now that I've grown more accustomed to being able to smell things almost like a normal person, I've become obsessed with all the smell good things. My candle-buying habits especially have gotten a tad out of control. Whoops! Let's call it smell rehab. That's justifiable, right?
One of my other new obsessions is buying perfume since I can smell it now! I never wore it before because I couldn't smell it, and frankly, I didn't trust anyone enough to buy me perfume. Is that bad? So when Saks offered me the newest scent by Viktor & Rolf to try, I obviously jumped right on board. Bonbon, above in the adorable pink bow bottle, is their newest fragrance, and it's quickly become my go-to spring scent. It's super sweet and feminine with strong caramel notes, but it's also floral and fruity, so it balances out the sweetness of the caramel. Look at me talking about scents! But really...don't take it from me. Go smell it for yourself with your more experienced nose and let me know what you think! Whatever it is, I think it smells fabulous, and I absolutely love it!
2. Disney's Bears
I went through a phase during college when I desperately wanted a bear cub as a pet like a complete weirdo. I got over it, but after seeing "Bears" last night, that desire has returned full force. It is such a beautifully done film, and the story is told extremely well...by John C. Reilly, might I add. It's the real life journey of a mother bear and her two cubs through a whole year between Alaskan winters as they struggle to find food and avoid danger. I just want to cuddle their little faces! The cinematography is gorgeous and the storytelling is done in such a way that you feel like you actually know the bears. I would definitely recommend going to see it! If nothing more than to see real life teddy bears frolicking on the beach and getting their claws stuck in clam shells :)
I can't with this game.
Wanna know something? I absolutely hate games. I never have them on my phone because I really just can't stand playing them. They're annoying and I get bored with them so very quickly.
But then Eric introduced me to the devil game 2048, and if you haven't played it yet 1. where have you been, and 2. go download it now...or save your sanity and don't.
I can't get enough of it.
I said I was going to delete it after I beat it...but then I beat it on day 2 and still couldn't stop. And you wanna know why?
Because of that pesky and far-too-tempting "Keep Going" button.
If that didn't exist, I would be cured. But am I? No. Because I'm weirdly competitive and obsess over things.
And then things like this happen and I kick myself for not reaching 4096.
I'm sick. I have a problem. Find help.
And please tell me if you have this overwhelming obsession too so we can commiserate!
4. Gold Flatware
Several months ago, I was at Furbish and fell in love with some matte gold flatware. I've never in my life obsessed over flatware. It's one of those things that's just sort of there to me...that is, until that beautiful set of gold knives, forks, and spoons I decided right then and there that I had to have. Ever since then, I've been on the lookout for perfect gold flatware because I figure one of these days I'll get married and have to register and wouldn't it make sense to register wherever the perfect gold flatware is? #neurotic
But look how pretty!
5. These Adorable Loafers
My affinity for C Wonder shoes is slightly out of hand, I'll admit. They're crazy comfy (which is rare for me and my ultra-high arches) and unbearably cute, so it's close to impossible for me to stay away from them. A sad reality for my bank account...
Case in point, these new spring smoking slippers that are all just begging to come home with me!
But which ones should I get??? I'm leaning towards the flamingos. They're 25% off now...so I have to, right?
6. Scandal Season Finale
I have no words about this. It was amazing. And awful. And shocking. And perfect. I don't know that I have the strength to wait for the next season...
That's all for now! I hope you all have a great week, and don't forget to enter my giveaway with Noelle from Sunshine & Pearls!
