Thursday afternoon may just be one of my favorite times of the week. I love the anticipation for Friday and then the weekend, and everyone seems to be in a better mood than say, Monday morning!

Before I launch into my afternoon post, I did want to announce that the winner of the Lemon Honey Crème giveaway is Lara. Lara please email me with your address so that I can have your lemon honey crème sent!

I am hoping to have another fun giveaway coming up next week, so stay tuned.

Things I am loving this week:

Ecolissa:

A little bit about Ecolissa:

Ecolissa.com launched Sept. 1st 2010. Ecolissa carries only fashionable eco friendly and vegan women’s clothing and accessories. We specialize in dresses and easy to wear separates.

I need this dress for my AIWF Boston scholarship dinner. And luckily, Melissa from Ecolissa is offering me and you 20% off Ecolissa merchandise. Just plug in the code eco20. The code won’t expire, so be sure to keep it in mind as you gear up for summer!

I also need to give some love to my favorite beauty product, regular old Vaseline:

I use it as a lip balm, mascara, eye brow tamer, moisturizer, and even for the cats as hairball prevention. Breaking in new spring shoes? Vaseline is an amazing blister preventer as well! I have thought “I love Vaseline” about 20 times this week, so I thought I would share.

Yogi Bedtime Tea

Part of my birthday Whole Foods trip purchases, this Yogi Bedtime Tea is a delightful way to end the day. It has a natural, sweet taste from cinnamon and cardamom, and I really feel like it makes me sleepier and more relaxed. I am the worst sleeper ever, as I may have mentioned in the past, so this is a pretty excellent discovery.

Planeta Cerasuolo di Vittoria Nero d’Avola/Frappato blend

I have written about this wine before, but I opened another bottle last night and remembered how much I love it. It is full of gorgeous ripe raspberry flavors and has a lovely violet/red color. It is hearty enough for dinner, a veggie tomato sauce was had last night, but it has fresh, fruit flavors that would make it a great summer red as well. Love.

This week I am also loving the new strength training workout I developed to do three days a week. I am due for a Spring Health Challenge update soon, and I will share it then if anyone is interested.

What are you loving this week? Any products/services etc. that you want to rave about?

No, I’m sadly not giving one away or even going on one, but a girl can dream, right? I am at the point in the Boston winter where I am fed up with the very same sweaters and boots that I couldn’t wait to wear in October. After months of sitting around, a couple of illnesses, and marathon training, my pants don’t fit, and I am eyeing up all sorts of fresh new styles.

Unfortunately as someone who’s been working only part time for a few months, I can’t buy any of these things, but I thought it would be fun to take you through my dream list.

1) Dresses. If I could have my way and my weather, I would wear cute dresses every day of the week. Not only are they easy to put on and go, but they are generally a lot more forgiving of a big meal or lack of gym time.

I generally buy my dresses at Marshalls and TJ Maxx; I have gotten plenty of things that I later saw on Newbury Street for way low prices. But if I won the lotto, I would spend a lot more time at Anthropologie buying things like this.

2) Flat sandals. I like heels, but let’s face it. I live in the city and spend a lot of time traveling on foot. Last summer I embraced my shortness and the flat sandal and ended up much happier than if I was trying to hobble around in cute strappy heels. I am loving these gladiator style sandals that I am seeing in stores now.

3) Accessories. Kate Middleton is making hairpieces and fascinators all the rage, but having spent so much time in Ireland, I have been coveting these pieces of wearable art for years. And let me tell you, they are pricey! I check out fascinators and hats every time I visit Ireland and still have not found one under $80 that I like.

4) Sleeveless tops. I generally like my arms, and I love buying lots of sleeveless tops to mix and mingle with jeans and jackets. I especially like finding very inexpensive sleeveless tops at H & M, Target, and the like. It’s a cheap and easy way to have an interesting summer wardrobe!

5) Sweaters. Lots and lots of sweaters to go over above sleeveless tops because somehow I manage to be cold in August.

Looking back at my imaginary shopping spree, I definitely see a theme with the colors I chose Smile As much as I try to get away from black and gray, I always gravitate back toward them even in summer.

Do you like to shop? What is on your spring fashion wish list?
