Ten things that made me smile this week

July 25, 2011

1. {The Orange County Fair}
I love county fairs and this was my first time ever going to the O.C. Fair. Let’s just say I indulged in some of the most amazing greasy, fried foods ever. This of course included the delicious roasted corn with butter and seasoned salt above. Yum!
2. {Tiffany & Co. Blue Box Petite Fours}
We had a Breakfast at Tiffany’s Event at my work and they served these adorable little petite fours. I couldn’t resist taking home a few.
3. {Voluspa Saijo Persimmon Candle}
I have been obsessed with this smell lately. The scent is layered with peach and red currant and kind of smells of light pink lemonade. It is fresh without being overly fruity and has been the perfect scent for warm summer days.
4. {She & Him Volume Two}
She & Him is the duo with Zooey Deschanel on vocals. She has the most calming and pleasant singing voice. Needless to say, I can’t get enough of this album.
5. {Lette Macaroons}
Lette, a delightful macaroon shop just opened up in downtown Pasadena. I had to check out. This was my first time ever trying a macaroon and I’m officially hooked.

6. {Tiffany & Co. Blue Boxes}
Happiness wrapped up in a box. These two new purchases arrived at my door this week and I almost squealed with excitement. Instant smile; never fails.
7. {Bath and Body Works Candle Sleeves}
I’m in love with these modern little candle sleeves. I bought three of them to hold my basic Ikea block candles in and I love the way they look on my window sill. And they’re only $3.50 for the small size. Instant chicness.
8. {J.Crew August 2011 Catalogue}
Yes, I do get very excited when my J.Crew Catalogue arrives. It’s almost as exciting as getting the Ikea Catalogue every year. I am loving the looks and collections that J.Crew is coming out with lately so every catalogue has been exceptionally pleasant to view. This August Catalogue did not disappoint.
9. {Feather Earrings}
I’ve been wearing these quite a bit lately and I love the summery look they give when I wear my hair down with loose waves. 
10. {Canter’s Fairfax}
I love, love, LOVE this deli. It’s one of my all-time favorite restaurants in Los Angeles. It still has the same 70’s decor and is open 24 hours. If you’ve never been, and you’re ever in L.A. definitely make a point to actually eat there. It’s a Los Angeles classic. And a phenomenal bakery to boot!
