Things I Love!

Time for another edition of Things I Love! Which could also be called Things I Just Bought or Things I'll Buy Soon.

1. Rising From the Sea dress from ModCloth

How awesome is this dress? I love the color and the style. Pretty sure it will be perfect for my 29th birthday (which isn't until July). So I popped this little dress into my shopping cart and it will be mine!

2. Rockaholic Flexible Hairspray from Tigi

I had to leave my hairspray in the States, because my suitcase was over the weight limit, so coming back to Italy, I needed a replacement. I didn't really like my other hairspray anyway, as it left my hair kind of sticky, so when I stumbled upon this flexible hairspray, I knew I had to give it a try. Well, thank god I did, because it is awesome. Seriously, it holds curls so well and they are soft without being sticky or stiff. Love this stuff!

3. Slipper boots from Old Navy

Ok, so the picture is small because the Old Navy site is stupid about saving pictures, but you get the point. I have these exact slippers and in my cold apartment with freezing floors, they are a lifesaver. Plus they were on clearance for like $6 and you can't beat that.

4. Hunger Games

As with many popular items, I'm behind the times when it comes to reading The Hunger Games and the other two books in the trilogy. However, I finished all three books while I was home for Christmas and was quite impressed. I must say that the first book is my favorite and I'm super excited to see the movie. So, if you haven't read the books, you really should!

5. Pepperidge Farm Coconut Cake

I had this cake on New Years Eve as a special treat with my family. I must confess that I'd been eyeing it for awhile, but refused to buy it and eat the whole thing by myself. Let me just say that it was amazing. If you remember Little Debbie's Coconut Cakes (that they so unfairly discontinued years ago) this cake tastes just like that. It was gone within hours after we opened it. It's that good, people.

There you have it! My list of Things I Love. Anything you guys are loving right now that you'd like to share?

Love the dress! Thanks for the tip on the hairspray. I will definitely have to find it. LOVE the slipper boots and the fact they were only 6.00. I so LOVE Old Navy sales.

The chocolate version of that cake - or should I say, what remains of it - is in my fridge right now. It won't last much longer.
