My Favorites!

Happy Wednesday all, and how nice is this short week?! My trip to Georgia was a good one -- easy, quick, and successful work-wise. I was hoping to stop at the outlets in Commerce, GA on my way home yesterday, but I ran out of time. Fooey! That particular J. Crew outlet there is one of the best I've ever been to.

Today I want to share with you some of my favorites.  Pardon the random post, but I personally enjoy seeing what other gals love, so I hope you do too!

/// Favorite Ice Cream Flavor ///
When I go for a sweet treat, I want it sweet.  I love super-sugary flavors like cotton candy and cake batter! I've been trying to reduce my fro-yo consumption, but the new TCBY in walking distance is going to challenge that goal. I can typically justify it by telling myself that half the cup will include raw fruit (blueberries and kiwi are my go-tos), but some days you've just got to go for the candy bar chunks, am I right?!

/// Favorite Lipstick ///
Before our Europe trip, I went to the MAC counter and tried on, ohhhh, I don't know, THIRTY different shades?!  I couldn't go to Paris without some fabulous lipstick. I ended up choosing Plumful (here) and I've been so happy with this purchase!

/// Favorite Way To Spend A Lunchbreak ///
Every Friday I treat myself to a trip to the Marshall's near work. Love, love this tradition. Wandering the aisles keeps me sane. :) The home and kitchen area is my favorite part with the beauty products area coming in at a close second.

/// Favorite Vacation Destination ///
I'm a beach girl through and through, but would you believe I haven't been once this entire summer? Our schedule has been packed to the brim with other activities, but we've got a date on the calendar this month to get some sand between our toes.  Thank goodness!

Used to own  a Mini Moke... next step up from a motorbike! Chilly on a winter's day in the UK ... Great memories though. Sold it to buy tickets to NZ in 1981!

/// Favorite Fast Food ///
Can you call Panera fast food? That's easily my favorite quick lunch or dinner spot.  The Mediterranean Veggie sandwich is purely amazing -- I'm not a vegetarian, but I do try to limit my meat (especially at fast food places) and this sandwich always fits the bill.

/// Favorite Wine ///
Just about any sauvignon blanc from New Zealand, expensive or inexpensive!


I'd love to hear your favorites ... ready, set, go!

Today will be great :)


  1. My favorite wine is Sonoma Curter Chardonnay!

  2. Sauvignon Blanc form New Zealand is my go to wine too!

  3. I love panera!!! Def some great faves!

  4. I haven't been to the beach at all this summer, either. I'm hoping to make at least one weekend trip - I imagine yours will be totally worth the wait!

  5. I also love spending my lunch hour at Marshalls or TJ Maxx. I love the home goods aisles - so many cute home accessories!

  6. ah marshalls, home to half of my bank account. ben & jerrys has a cotton candy ice cream, I'm not sure if it's new or just new to me but I've been trying to hunt it down since I saw an ad for it :)

  7. Wonderful list, we are kindred spirits. I could drink my weight in SB, Cupcake has been my go to for a while. And drinking it while eating Panera would be heaven! And, my husband is from Commerce so we go to those outlets all the time, I was just at the GAP and Polo one for my little man on Sunday!

  8. girl you KNOW I could drown myself in a nice glass of chardonnay :)

  9. I'm with Dee! That Sonoma is delish as is a new one I've found called Butternut! We are headed to Charleston on Saturday and Folly Beach on Monday..can't.wait! Going to panera for a Junior League meeting this evening...may have to try that sandwich your mentioned! Happy Wednesday Lady!

  10. My fave ice cream flavor varies by season - peach or strawberry in summer and butter pecan or chocolate w/ caramel in fall. Same with wine - SB in summer and pinot noir or red zin in fall. I also second the beach vacay - always my first pick. We're checking out St. Lucia in November and can't wait!

  11. I agree any whites from New Zealand are extra crisp and yummy! I love me some Marshall's!

  12. Oh, Blue Bell Banana pudding ice cream - HANDS DOWN! I only drink Moscato or Riesling and love Pacific Rim. We went to Napa and Sonoma over Christmas and I didn't walk away with a single red I could drink. I love the beach, but would choose the mountains any day over the beach. Grand Tetons for sure! I've got Ross, Marshalls, TJ Maxx and Home Goods all about 2 blocks from my office - YIKES!

  13. I love cake batter ice cream I always get gummy bears whenever I'm at a Froyo place. Sauvignon blanc from NZ is hands down my favorite wine too! There is nothing better than shopping on a lunch break

  14. I LOVE reading a great list of favorites! I'm so envious of your Friday Marshall's lunch breaks! I love wondering through Home Goods whenever I can. Telenti Sea Salted Caramel in my fave ice cream and Rombauer Chardonnay is my FAVE white wine!

  15. I just went to Marshall's on my lunch break today!

  16. I also head straight for the sweet flavors! Cake batter Froyo with oreos is, not surprisingly, AMAZING.

    Love that beach pic too!

  17. We just got a Panera here and oh my word, it's SO YUM!

    I can't wear Mac lipstick. I think I have issues lol. I find it so dry on my lips :(

  18. I love Plumful! I got it a few months ago, and I think it will be even more amazing in the fall. :)
    The Grass Skirt

  19. A girl after my own heart! I love, love, love New Zealand SB!

  20. I like the sound of that MAC lipstick. I am in the market for a reddish color and maybe that is it? Is the base purple/plum tones with predominantly red color? Let me know!

  21. I love "favorites" lists! Is it weird of me that I don't own any nice lipstick? I need some serious help! I'm the worst at makeup! haha
