Product porn

I love discovering new and fabulous stuff, particularly anything that is a) designed beautifully, b) earth-friendly, and c) smells great. My latest obsessions place big red checkmarks next to each of those attributes.

  • 88 Orange tees and tanks – lightweight, fitted, sexy, organic cotton…and laundered in their signature blossom 88orangescent (very, VERY reminiscent of Jo Malone’s luscious orange blossom fragrance…I have the body cream and it’s intoxicating). UNREAL. I bought five of them in one fell swoop at Juniper in Madrona. Other Juniper plusses: their precious rescue kitty du jour (I almost didn’t leave the store after meeting the last one, Carl), the nearby glassybaby store and hot shop (!), and Cupcake Royale next door. HELLO.
  • Method Bloq – a line of body care products packaged methodbloqin unique, space-saving square packaging. Basically, anything Method does is gospel. They’ve all but earned the gold seal of fabulosity for making Mother Earth happy, while simultaneously looking like a red carpet star and boasting German automotive performance. I am IN LOVE with the Pure Minimalist water flower fragrance, which is light, clean, and fresh – i.e., all that matters. Bonus: No parabens or other crap ingredients – and found at Bartell’s for $7. My luck: It will be discontinued within six months. Like most everything I love, including my romantic relationships.

  1. OHHHH. Michelle recently introduced me to method cleaning stuff @ Target. I constantly want to spray myself with the pink grapefruit cleaner while cleaning my kitchen. Now I won’t have to spray myself with cleaner since they have their new line 🙂

    • OMG, you crack me up. Their olive leaf soap and shower gel is also fabulous…it’s not part of the Bloq line, but is easier to find (Target has it). Four bars in lovely olive green packaging. And P.S. I was at Bartell’s this evening and – lo and behold – the Bloq line is no longer there. See – as soon as I love something, it disappears. Sniff.
