It's time for another new feature. It's simple. Here is what I'm inspired by (or just loving) this week:


Extremely varied, right? I just go with what speaks to me. No rhyme or reason...just a few favorites from the week. What are your favorites this week?

1. I was researching different detox programs after a particularly indulgent vacation and came across the CLEAN program. I was interested but it is a bit pricey. I started thinking about what other (less drastic) measures I could take to get "clean." In doing so, I found the Clean Blog (owned by the same company). There are tons of recipes for clean eating. Having been vegan, I've tried a few of them before but there is a good selection if you're interested.

2. A frame full of hearts. Just what your inner girly girl needs at a shower or wedding. Guest books have largely become a thing of the past. I've been to weddings where I wrote blessings and our names on rocks that later became decoration at the base of a tree in the couple's front yard. I've signed large matted pictures, posters, decorated onesies, etc. There are plenty of ways to let the celebrated people in your life know you were there for an important milestone. This frame with it's drop in hearts appeal to my love of Plinko and my joy for all things LOVE.

3. Candy Crush is an addiction. I don't need to say anything more. For some, it may be on borrowed time but I feel pretty challenged at this point.

4. I've been obsessed with grilled corn with cotija cheese since having it at a food fair years ago. Recently, I started trying to perfect my own version. This is the next recipe I am going to try.

5. The stain and the reference to Shel Silverstein's The Giving Tree on this cutting board had me at hello.

6. Google Chromecast allows you to stream Netflix, among other things, on your TV. Just plug it in the HDMI portal and control it with your smartphone. I am not a big techie but this is pretty cool AND reasonably priced.

7. I've done all of Oprah and Deepak Chopra's joint meditation series. A new one focused on relationships starts on August 5th. So hum.

8. I've been wanting to do a statement wall in one of the rooms in my house for a while. What will be on it is where I get stuck. I saw this project months ago on A Beautiful Mess and loved it. Who knows? Maybe this will be the one.

9. Who doesn't need a flash drive? I use them to store pictures, documents, etc. There are a million quirky options out there but this one appealed to me. It's sleek and matches my existing jewelry.

10. I saw a really great review on the Zoku Slush Maker and had to try one. If it works, it will be with me on every beach trip from now on.
