I have a few current obsessions, so I figured I'd share.
1) Kimora Lee Simmons, more specifically "Kimora: Life in the Fab Lane"
2) Everything Kardashian
Khloe (left) is married to Lamar Odom of the LA Lakers, Kim (center) dated Reggie Bush of the New Orleans Saints for a while, and Kourtney is just fabulous. They own a boutique called "Dash" with stores in Calabasas, Miami and now, New York City.
I'm pretty sure if we met, we'd be the best of friends. Especially Khloe, Kourtney, and me :) And I consider Kourtney my fashion icon. Matt likes that ;)
3) Patton and Matt in Argyle
Argyle was made for my males. Patton has a collar just like the one here, but without the pink, and it is smashing! And you should see my hubby in this pattern...flawless. I love it!
4) Vegan Makeovers
I don't have a picture for this, but I love taking traditional homemade and many times Southern dishes, and making them into vegan meals. So far we've done stuffed bell peppers, sloppy joes, shepards pie, and cherry cobbler :) YUMSIES!
5) Christian Louboutin
We have a few Buddha pieces in our house, and I love them for intrinsic value alone. But then I started reading proverbs from Buddha, and found them quite insightful . I was recently asked by someone how I have an optimistic outlook on life. I contribute it to my diet, my very supportive and adorable husband, as well as positive readings, from those like Buddha. You don't have to be a Buddhist to appreciate the quotes, just like you don't have to be a Christian to appreciate Proverbs and Psalms. And to be honest, they are very similar.
"Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned" -Buddha
See what I mean? Woosa.
7) Wax Seals
If you have received a letter from me lately, chances are it had a "C" wax seal on it. I have always loved wax seals, and since many letters have been leaving the Cole household, I thought it would be nice to get a personalized wax seal. Wax seals have been used for centuries, and I first became smitten when I learned William Shakespeare used them. Not that our letters are comparable to those of The Bard, but you can see why I would be inspired (Willy Shakes is my longest running obsession. Ask my parents).
And it seems that is it for now. Have a fabulous day!
