Currently Crushing…


I thought I had a really short list this month, but then I remembered a few things! First up the new forever stamps honoring the designer Oscar de la Renta! HUGE stamps, but they are good forever and really are suitable for framing! So pretty. Thanks to my bestie L for discovering!


I know last month I gave a crush worthy notation to Eucerin skin calming lotion, but when I slammed through that bottle, I tried this rich and equally satisfying one from Aveeno. It was suggested by Cooking Light in the February issue, and easily found in drugstores and mass retailers. Yogurt like in consistency, but goes on light and not greasy….wonder what I’ll try next month?


It’s March Madness at McDonalds this month as they expand on the limited edition of the ever popular shamrock shake. What they have so wonderfully discovered is that if you pair it with the chocolate shake you get a Girl Scout Thin Mint, Andes After Dinner Mint type of experience….I have not braved the chocolate chip one yet, but the month is young…


My day book was running out of space for notes, appointments etc, so I treated myself to a new one from Rifle Paper. I’m nuts for the design of mermaids and octopi and whales…I want to live under the sea with them. In fact I love the design so much that I bought a matching piece of wrapping paper to frame for perpetuity…


This just in…literally. Supposedly went on store shelves on Wednesday, but the Hubs had to go to a couple of places to find it. After all it’s still cold in New England, but warmer southern states might be more into rosé right now than we are. Haven’t taken it for a warm up ride yet, but once I do, I’ll report back for it’s suitability to join the rosé all day club that I belong to. Membership is usually aligned with golf season here in the higher elevations, or Tax Day to Columbus Day if it’s easier to remember!


Lastly, I’m a big listener of podcasts and “Missing Richard Simmons” is my “Serial” replacement for this spring. Do you know Richard Simmons has not been seen since 2014? No one’s talking…Dan Taberski, a one time friend and reporter takes us into the story. Can’t miss listening. Available on Stitcher…
