Every summer I get obsessed with something or other. Last summer it was shoes, ewing and Timothy Olyphant. This summer I’ve been a little more scattered.
My first obsession this summer is nail polish. Now I don’t usually paint my fingernails, though I always paint my toenails--one of my favorite ways to welcome warm weather. But this summer I would go on Pinterest, see cool nails and try to mimic them. I’ve got a couple dozen bottles of nail polish now, every color from black to white, shades of blues, purples, pinks, oranges, even green. NOT a fan of glitter polish, though it is pretty.
My second is with thrifting. My mom has enjoyed it for awhile, hitting the Goodwill stores and thrift stores and pick through to see what you can find. She started with baskets, then moved on to silver spoons and other odds and ends. This summer, I’ve been going with her to various Goodwills, thrift stores and antique stores. I’ve found cute wire baskets, Diet Coke glasses to go with my Coke glass collection, adorable purses and a great bedside table. Adding to my addiction? The Junk Gypsies on HGTV. They’re two sisters who go thrifting and use their finds to redecorate other people’s houses. I LOVE that show.
My third obsession is Channing Tatum. I don’t think he’s particularly handsome, but he’s got a gorgeous body and the boy can DANCE. Please don’t tell me how old he is--I don’t want to know.
What about you? Do you get obsessed with things? What are your current obsessions?
