Favorite Things: 01.16.13

Butter London nail polish in Teddy Girl--the perfect pale pink

I'm in Hawaii this week for some long overdue family hang time. The weather is pretty much perfect here right now, which is really taking the edge off the freezing NYC winter I just escaped. But for those of you in not-so-sunny environs, here are some of the little things that were making the grey days a bit cozier. xo

Recently discovered Shino Takeda's perfectly imperfect pottery and my new goal in life is to collect as much of her work as I can get my hands on. Etsy shop HERE. Read about her HERE.

The company is called Teapigs and the tea is called popcorn tea. And that's an actual piece of popcorn in the bag. Need I say more.

The two cookbooks that are getting the most play in my kitchen these days--Canal House Cooks Every Day and The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook

This extra virgin olive oil is really good and really affordable. Plus I love the ballsiness of putting "world's finest" on your label.

  2. I hadn't heard of Teapigs before! Popcorn tea is intriguing and sounds wonderful. I'll have to try that!
    I love the Smitten Kitchen Cookbook. I haven't made too much out of it yet, but what I have made has been fantastic, and it's just so much fun to look through too!

  4. Hi there! I'm sure you hear this 24.7.365 but I love your blog, especially your Favorite Things series! I haven't tried Teapigs yet, but definitely will add it to the list now. Have you tried David's Tea yet? I'm obsessed. They have a couple stores around the city, you should stop by...their baristas are so friendly and helpful!
