Colorful and Classic

Ok, I don't need a new watch, and most days I don't even wear a watch, but IF I needed one and IF I wore one, this would be my new pick - the Carousel Watch by Kate Spade.  So cute, so classic, so colorful with a fun saying engraved inside.  The only think I don't like would be having to pick a color - I like them all!

Buzzing about Beehive RUSKS

Tucked in a Christmas gift of cheese from the Beehive Cheese Company came a little package of Utah Cherry-Rosemary Beehive RUSKS.  How nice, crackers to go with our cheese.  Oh, what an understatement!  It is a serious faux pas to call these RUSKS, "crackers", for they are so much more than that.  The hive-shaped RUSKS are loaded with nuts and seeds, a touch of rosemary, and bit of sea salt, and some dried cherries for a touch of sweetness.  The RUSKS paired perfectly with the Beehive Cheese Company cheeses that we received in the gift box.  I loved the RUSKS so much that I placed an order for some more, along with some cheeses, for myself and to give as a hostess gift.  A little bit different, and so very good.

PS.  I don't know why the company calls them RUSKS, in all caps, but they do, and so I did, too.

Chubby Sticks!

I tried this product based on a recommendation from my friend Christine who says she can not live without it!  I think that's a pretty strong recommendation so I wanted to try it for myself, and so far, I have not been disappointed.  The Clinique Chubby Stick is a moisturizing lip balm made with mango and shea butter that comes in eight natural looking tints.  It moisturizes and protects your lips while giving you just a touch of natural color.  Picking just one color was a tough decision as they are all so pretty, but I decided on the Super Strawberry shade to keep in my bag as my go to balm this spring.

Just Like Elvis... Blue Suede Shoes!

I have been (patiently?) waiting to show you my latest favorite thing, because it is not for me and I did not want to spoil the birthday surprise for someone....  Aren't they cute?  Blue Suede Toms!  Love the ballet flat style! Love the two-tone blue suede!  And you can feel good about your purchase knowing someone in need is also receiving a new pair of shoes.  The style is called Eliana, and I ordered them from the Toms website. From all reports they are cute and comfy, and the birthday girl seems quite happy with her gift.
