My Favorite Things is a series of blog posts highlighting things that I’m in love with right now. I hope you like them too!

1. Doctor Who TARDIS Cookie Jar by I’m new to the Doctor Who series, but I’m really digging it so far. My husband and I have been watching the older seasons (we love our Amazon Prime!). This cookie jar is totally awesome. It even makes authentic TARDIS noises. A perfect gift for your favorite Whovian!

2. I make no apologize for my love of Twilight. Sorry, haters. A friend and I are going to a Twilight marathon at a local theater that is showing all 5 movies. I’m kind of excited and terrified at the same time. Not so terrified of sitting in a theater all day, but of the type of people who go to these showings. I’m seeing a lot of fake fangs and homemade “Team Edward” t-shirts in my future…

3. Laura Mercier Foundation Primer Radiance (available at Sephora). I’m picky about primers. I have tried just about everything, from the quintessential favorite Smashbox to the weird, but surprisingly effective Monistat anti-chafing gel (for real…) Some of them worked, some of them didn’t, but I didn’t really love any of them. This one is quickly becoming my favorite. I was weary of the non-powdery finish, but I was pleasantly surprised by how long my make-up lasts and how well it controls oil. FYI – I use mineral make-up, so I’m not sure how well it works with traditional foundation, but I can’t imagine why it wouldn’t work as well with liquid make-up! It’s a little pricey, but a little goes a long way.

4. True Blood Cookbook: Eats, Drinks, and Bites from Bon Temps (available at Amazon). I love True Blood and have made a couple TB desserts in my day. So, I’m weirdly excited to get this book. Ok, it’s true that I don’t have it yet, but it’s on my wishlist! The reviews are decent so far, so I can’t wait to try out a couple recipes worthy of Bon Temps!

5. Season 1 of American Horror Story (available at Amazon). You guys already know how much I love American Horror Story – I even made some nightmare-inducing cookies for it! The new season is not disappointing – just as smart, sexy, and scary as the first season! And, even though I’m not one to buy seasons of TV shows, I kind of want the first season. Just because the stories are so different…and I miss Frances Conroy and Denis O’Hare (though Conroy is supposed to have a part in this season too).

6. Candy Cane Treat Boxes by Martha Stewart. Can you believe that Christmas is only about 7 weeks away? If you’re like me, friends and family expect to get some awesome treats from you every year. Tins are nice, but can be a bit pricey depending on where you get them. I used these treat boxes last year – I’m a sucker for pretty packaging. I waited for a sale and snagged them pretty cheap. Such a beautiful way to present your lovely holiday treats!

Get out! True blood has a cookbook?! What kind of recipes does it have? I too love American Horror Story. It is some kind of freaky deaky this season. Adam Levine looks good even with an arm ripped off;)

Hi June! I don’t have the cookbook yet (it is on my wish list!), but I was able to find a couple recipes in the book: Gran’s Lemonade, Sloppy Jason’s, and Bon Temps Bloody Mary. It sounds like it has lots of very Southern recipes! 🙂

I’m a big Twilight fan. And I *might* have made homemade t-shirts for the first 2 movies. And then made my friends wear them as well. *might*

AHS…Dude! Her legs? And those creature/humans outside? And the killer flesh face guy? I can only imagine what the next episode will be! Or what NEXT season will be. geeze!

Haha – I’m secretly jealous of the homemade shirts – I’m not crafty with fabric!

AHS is absolutely crazy…in a good way! I’m excited to see what’s next!
