Favorite Things

Disclaimer: I did not include “Favorite People” on my “Favorite Things” list; but I must point out that my husband and my two beautiful girls are my most Favorite People. Yes, I showed this list to my husband, and he said “where am I?” Confident guy.

This list will be updated as I find new obsessions. Scroll down to read all about each item.



Starbucks – Yep, I am a total addict. Lover of Carmel Macchiato’s, Vanilla Latte’s, and Passion Tea Lemonade’s. Hot or iced, coffee or tea, I’ll take it. Daily.

iPhone – How did I ever live without this?! It is always just an arm’s length away, and “buzzing” constantly with emails, text messages, and phone calls. It’s pretty much an extension of my hand.

Sunglasses – Unless you want me walking around outside with my eyes closed, I better have a pair of sunglasses on. A pair in my car, my husband’s car, and my purse is standard.

Chapstick – Soft lips and a little shine are a must. If I was stranded on a deserted island, I must have Chapstick with me. I put it on at least 50 times a day. Seriously.

Facebook – I know millions of other people share this addiction with me. When I’m home, Facebook is up on my computer, and when I’m out I check it on my phone. I never miss a status update.

Red Bull – Sugarfree. This is my secret weapon. That’s all I can tell you.

Chocolate Chip Cookies – Must be soft and slightly undercooked. Mmmm….yum.

Euphoria  – Perfume by Calvin Klein. I originally bought this perfume while on my honeymoon, so it reminds me of my hubby. I literally feel naked without perfume on.

Orange – Lover of fruit. An orange a day keeps the doctor away.

HGTV – Design inspires me. I always have a design show on in background. Or Ellen if it’s 3:00pm.

Flats – Well, shoes in general are my addiction. Heels, flats, flip flops, whatever. I wear flats most of the time because I can easily work and be comfortable in them. You wouldn’t want me to show up to your photo shoot in stilettos, right?

Necklaces – I wear a necklace everyday. My weakness is long, dramatic necklaces’. They pull any outfit together.

Cardigans – My signature look. Short-sleeve, long-sleeve, thick, thin, long, cropped…doesn’t matter to me. I love cardigans…with flats and a long necklace.

The Beach – My happy place. Perfection. Heaven. Need I say more?

Smoothies – This is a variation of my fruit obsession. Perfect when I’m on the go.

Music – I love how music can have such a positive effect on my mood. I literally switch between pop, hip-hop, rap, 80’s and country music. From one end of the music spectrum to the other; I love it.

Canon – Yep, I’m a photographer (hopefully you figured that out by now!). All I use is Canon professional gear.

Flowers – Lover of all things pretty.

Chipotle – For when I actually need to consume more than Starbucks, Red Bulls, and fruit. Chicken bowl, please?

Nail Polish – My toes must be painted at all times. I am obsessed with having nice looking feet (is that weird?).

MAC Makeup – It does wonders. Ladies, try it. See for yourself.

Candles – The smell of either Vanilla or Lavender is so relaxing to me. And romantic (hint, hint hubby).

Reading – I love magazines and books. I love to learn and reading always gives me new inspiration.

White Sheets – Nothing feels better after a long day than getting into a bed with freshly washed clean sheets. Must be white (yep, I like to feel like I’m sleeping at a luxury hotel).
