Window Shopping Wednesday

I am not much of a shopper, much to my mother’s chagrin. The woman can spend days at the mall, while I start to feel itchy after just a few hours. It’s not that I’m not materialistic, I totally am, it’s just that the thought of adding more stuff to my life makes it hard to breathe. But I like the idea of things. So I’m an avid window shopper. I browse catalogs I’ll never buy from and hold my breathe when I pass the window at J.Crew. So while I’m stuck at school on Wednesdays, I thought we could have some fun via blog. Let’s window shop!

Here’s what I’m coveting this week –

1.  Mini Chocolate Quail Eggs from Knipschildt.

A milk chocolate nougatine center coated with white chocolate.  These would be so cute as part of the place settings for brunch.  You know, for all the brunches I host!  They would also be fun in a child’s Easter basket.  Maybe a mini Easter basket?  You know, for all my kids.

2.  Paper drinking straws from Magnolia Bakery.

I already own a set of plastic reusable straws but when I take a drink to-go I use throw-aways I’ve stolen from Subway.  This would be a much classier option.  Plus, they’d be adorable in mimosas at all of those brunches I throw.

3.  The Tea Time Assortment from Magnolia Bakery.

It’s a Magnolia week, huh?  I actually never went to Magnolia Bakery when I was living in the city – I had my own favorite cupcake spot, thank you very much – but some of their non-cupcake options are pretty neat.  Tea and shortbread is the combination and the shortbread in this package is dipped in chocolate and non-pariels.

4.  Drop Dead Healthy by A.J. Jacobs.

Basically, it’s a memoir from a man who gave every healthy living tip a try.  Jacobs already read an entire encyclopedia in Know It All and I adored reading about it so I think I’ll be a fan.  His work tends to be educational with lots of self-deprecating humor, just my style.

5.  Mix & Match Polka Dot Silverware from Site NYC.

I love the look of a mix and matched table so it’s nice that this set comes pre-mixed.  The polka dots are fun and everything is dishwasher safe.

How often do you host brunch?
