Happy Friday all! It’s been an interesting week. I feel like I can comfortably speak for most New Englanders that we are completely and utterly sick of the snow (especially the associated travel issues – the T is broken, side streets are still a mess, and there are zero parking spots anywhere in Boston Metro) and so B & B will be taking applications for its first annual Boston Snow Relocation Project in order to spread the wealth of snow across the country to those who want a piece of this winter wonderland. 😉 I’m basically just still mad that my race was cancelled (with no refunds – lame). So, I’m focusing on the positives (as one must do in these circumstances): embrace the snow, and have fun because spring will come!
Here is what I’ve been feeling this week:
1. Justin’s Cookie Dough Almond Butter.
I WANT THIS. NOW. Apparently, the King of the Morons John Mayer (sorry not sorry, I think he’s kind of a D) tweeted at Justin’s requesting a Cookie Dough Almond Butter – a request which was fulfilled by the Almond Butter Gods at Justin’s. The Cookie Dough Almond Butter is chocolate almond butter with chocolate chips and real chunks of cookie dough (and it’s vegan!). I don’t know why they wasted this pleasure on him, but if they don’t make this available nationwide, I will personally stand outside and picket Justin’s headquarters. Also, if you are a huge Justin’s fan like moi, you’d know that the founder, Justin Gold, always includes a message on each jar. Here it is for the jar above:
I know this guy named John. You see, John’s awesome because he doesn’t just sit around waiting on the world to change, he makes things happen with the power of his thumbs, a little keyboard and this thing called Twitter. If it weren’t for my buddy, we would still be living in a sad, sad world without Cookie Dough Almond Butter. Talk about using your powers for good. If only everything I tweeted came true . . . John, enjoy this creation. Finely crafted just for you. —Justin
Dude, seriously – the world needs this, Justin. Make it happen. PLEASE!!!!
2. Nike Legendary Lava Tight
My amazing sister got me some Nike Legend training tights for Christmas, and I’m obsessed. They are (I can’t believe I’m about to say this) better than Lulu! The fabric is thick and opaque (no free shows!) but wicks sweat really well, and the pattern she got me is really cute. I’ve been wearing my pair at least once a week – they are perfect for the days, like today, that the temperature is only 8°F / – 13°C when I wake up and head to the gym at 5 am – so I’m not freezing my ass off in crops, but the full length tights still wick sweat like a boss and I don’t get overheated (and that’s coming from a furnace – I run so hot when I workout). I am OBSESSED with that Lava pattern in the pair above – it’s SO FUN and SPRING-Y! I’m really feeling the fun pants recently, even though I really only have two pairs in a sea of solid dark neutrals. Also, the Lifting Girls at the gym always wear fun pants and they look so friggin’ cute. I want some.
New York Fashion Week just came to a close yesterday, but I’ve spent every free minute in the past week reading recaps, using WhoWhatWear as my Fashion Bible. And, I want that outfit (above). Oh. Em. Gee. Obsessedddd!! One of my favorite parts of NYFW is perusing the Street Snaps by The Styleograph. I get such sweet outfit ideas by scoping out how other people put pieces together in a creative way. Loving it…
