What's Hot...May

So, I decided to add another feature to my blog, to break up the monotony of the weekly quotes and the daily outfit posts. However, this one is only go to be monthly, I think.

What is this new post, you ask? Well, my personal favorite things of the month, essentially "Katrina's Hot List." It will most likely be a list of about 10 things that I am fascinated with each month, ranging from food, websites, make-up, clothes, books, music, etc, etc. Anyways, I hope you guys enjoy- feel free to leave your own "hot list" in the comments section!

1. Häagen-Dazs Raspberry Sorbet
As the hot temperatures roll in across the east coast, and the humidity sets in, there is honestly nothing like a cup of this refreshing treat-especially when your parents refuse to turn on the air conditioner. Smooth, creamy, and entirely decadent, if you haven't already, you have got to try it! Although for ice cream it can be slightly costly, you can now buy it a most grocery stores in a single serving cup for about a dollar. (woo-hoo!)
2.Glee
Okay, I am sure most of you have either a) seen the show before b) have heard about the show before or c) are die hard gleeks. I, fall into the third category of this list, and just can't get enough of this show. What is not to love? Interesting fashion on from all the character, outstanding singing, and something different on television. Combined, these form the phenomena that is Glee. Tune in to Fox Tuesday's at 9 p.m. to watch! P.S-Here is my favorite song from Glee, thus far. Unfortunately, they don't have the versions from T.V online, so this will have to do.
3.2010 Nissan Rogue 360
Today, my family purchased a new car, the 2010 Nissan Rogue 360. Although primarily for my older brother, I get to drive it around too. This SUV is sleek, drives like a dream, is practical, and is great buy for your money. While I am sure no one is really in the market for a new car, you should definitely take a look at this if you are.

4.Stiff Upper Lip
This stuff is the absolute best, and I bet most of you haven't even heard of it! What is it, you say? Chapstick. Homemade by makers of all natural products, this chapstick will leave you with smooth lips in no time since it is made without petroleum or Vaseline. Plus, it won't break the bank like your La Mer chapstick does. Click here to buy your own tube. Unfortunately, you will have to buy online unless you are planning to go to a craft store with a Pretty Baby Soap distributor anytime soon.

5.O.P.I Shrek Collection
If you haven't heard already, O.P.I has released its newest collection-Shrek, and I love it. Now, the colors are a bit out there, but I love the fun and playful vibe they present. My favorite of the collection is the dark purple, Funkey Dunky, but the Ogre-the-top-blue comes in a close second. Definitely not something you're going to want to wear to your next business meeting, but something fun to wear on your toenails or when you are not in a professional environment.
6.Coral Anything
So this category is definitely a less specific than the others, but this definitely one of my favorite trends in the summer. I think coral is a universally flattering color on anyone, when worn properly, and just overall screams "SUMMER!" Although I don't have too many coral pieces, I am definitely interested in adding some more items to my ever growing wardrobe.

7.Foodgawker.com and Foodporndaily.com
These two food websites, discovered yesterday, are my new favorites. I am a huge lover of food, and well presented food. These two websites not only make me salivate, but so hungry! Usually, I just end up in the kitchen grabbing a bag of chips while dreaming about what delicious things I could be eating off the websites, but maybe I will soon be inspired to get in the kitchen and cook a little more? We'll see. I know my mom would love it if I did.

8.BCBG Summer Pre-Sale
As you can most likely tell from many of my daily outfit posts, I love BCBG. Plus, I can never pass up a sale, so when I received an email from BCBG yesterday morning with the word 'sale' in it, I instantly perked up. I haven't really had a chance to look through it yet, but soon I will. Or, I will head off to a factory store, where I can look in person. (which I prefer)

9.Best Friends by Martha Moody
My roommate lent me this right before we left for summer vacation, and I am still working on finishing up. But, from what I have read so far, I really like. Best Friends is the story of two college roommates who become best friends and go through everything together-from marriages, divorce, death and birth. It has some great plot twists as well, so I have been up late almost every night trying to finish this. I think it should be done by Tuesday, however.

10.Don't Worry Baby-The Beach Boys
You know when you hear a song and it reminds you of something? Whether it is your first kiss, a party you were at, or a season, we all have songs for these moments. Don't Worry Baby, by the Beach Boys is an oldie, but a goodie. Whenever it I listen to it, not only does it remind me of Deja Vu (it's played through most of the movie) but summer. Something about this song is so relaxing and calm, just like summer should be. The lyrics have been in my head for the past couple of days, so I knew I had to put it on this list.

Hope you guys enjoyed my hot list! Pin It
