The Love List: Yes, Carrots Are On The List!

[Welcome to my Weekly Love List, a list on all things I love. Because if I love them, well, obviously you should love them too. As the Backstreet Boys song says (and yes, I am actually quoting them) “My Love is All I Have To Give.” So with that throwback, here are this week’s list-worthy things…]

1. Dolce Vita “Ellie” Sandal. Maybe it’s because I don’t have the ankles to wear them. Maybe it’s because it’s currently -5 outside and I would give my left foot to wear them (literally). But either way I love these bad boys….

2. So, a while ago I told you about my love for Shutterfly and their photo books. Well, ladies, I’ve found the Louboutins of photo albums. turns your books into coffee table books. And I am convinced there is NO better coffee table book than one filled with your most treasured pics. Think about it: when was the last time your coffee table books were more than just dust/shot glass collectors? Or, more importantly, when was the last time you even had a coffee table book? (Aren’t those tables supposed to be danced on?) Now here is a coffee table book worth l-o-v-ing.

3. The Bachelor. Usually I hate trashy reality tv, but this season I am hooked… and then some. Jason is adorable and the chicks are cuuurazy. Borderline stalkerish. That Shannon chick makes Britney’s meltdown look like a normal Tuesday night. And it’s all so amazing to watch go down. The drama! The Crazies! The fake reality!  It’s so nice to actually look forward to my Mondays, yet tragically pathetic that this is why.

4. 100 Calorie Chocolate covered Pretzels. Yes they do exist. And I owe the big guy a big hug for that. I try to avoid enriched white flour, but there is somethign about chocolate covered pretzels that get me everytime. So here is an occasional 100 calorie treat that I loooove.

5. Yes-to-Carrots. I recently started noticing that there were lines under my eyes. True story. And after revolting by doing nothing (I’m too young for undereye wrinkles, damn it!) I realized that did, well, nothing. So I bought Yes-to-Carrots ‘Eye Can C Clearly Now’ Eye cream and am addicted. Apparently, carrots do more than just help your vision.  And the company have a whole slew of products made with organic fruits and veggies that are heaven for your face, hair and skin! (Say Yes to Tomatoes and Cucumbers too!) And did I mention it’s both affordable and easily accessible (Walgreens carries tons of their products)? Yeah, just another reason I love it.
