Things I´ve Bought That I Love


Oooh, let´s give ourselves over to some hedonistic consumerism, shall we?! I´ll dish on some of my favorite, bestest purchases if you´ll dish on yours!

  1. Clinique Pore Minimizer Instant Perfector: Or as I like to call it ¨Robot Face¨ because when I use this magical, magical stuff I look like a cross between a Botticelli-clam-shell-stander and those weird human robots from A-I.

  2. Lint Eating Machine; Do you have any Virgos in your life? Because they will love you forever if you get them one of these. And while you´re at it, get one for yourself. It will rejuvinate your favorite sweater and allow you to buy all those cute, pilly cardigans at the Salvation Army.

  3. Black Harem Pants: I bought mine in 2006 from a street vendor in Italy. Half as a joke and half as sleeping gear for the train. So no one was more surprised that me when I found myself wearing them every blessed day of the last three summers. Because they´re comfy! And match everything! And vaguely weird/fashion forward without being totally ridiculous! Just somewhat ridiculous.

  4. IKEA Poang Chair: I know, I know. IKEA furniture is nigh on disposable. But this chair is so insanely comfortable! And it doesn´t burn my retinas the way Eazyboys do. And it costs less than one paycheck.

  5. Dr. Scholl´s Massaging Gel Insoles: I have the feet of a Jane Austen heroine - thin and pale and ridiculously high arched. And yet I will insist on buying $11 novelty ballet flats from Target. To make up for this, I buy a pair of these insoles and tuck them into every blessed pair of shoes that I have. So great! I am, indeed, gellin´.

What about you? What purchases have you made that are worth their weight in gold?

P.S. This list is inspired by the fantastic and hilarious blog Things I Bought That I Love. It´s now defunct, but I promise, you´ll want to read through every single post. It´s written by Kelly Kipoor from The Office!

1. A pair of leather sandals. The leather was like butter, so soft, and I wore them for years until they literally fell apart. I miss those shoes!

2. A swirly black skirt to wear in summertime. It was light, felt so good to wear, and had a really sweet piece of black filmy fabric peeking out the bottom that made it extra feminine.

3. A Martin guitar that sounds SO sweet.

4. Eucalyptus Spearmint sugar scrub from Bath and Body works. Mmmmmm...

definitely have a lint eater.
died of happiness when I found out how well it works, because I pretty much live in sweaters. I'm serious, half of my closet is sweaters, the closet looks like it belongs to a sweet little old lady who has a penchant for every single shade of grey.

lint eater: how much and where from?! Googling it came up with an entirely different dryer cleaning type product.
