What I'm Craving this December

I love learning about new products and ideas over the Internet. I don't have a lot of shopping access out here in rural Kansas, so I do the majority of my ordering and window shopping online.

Here are the products that I'm craving this month.
*Product name and shopping sources provided after the image.

Kitchen & Foodie Cravings

Polish Apple Bakers
Aren't these apple bakers gorgeous? I love a kitchen appliance that is as beautiful as it is functional.

Bacon Chocolate Bar
I've heard about these for awhile now but I haven't had the opportunity to see one in person yet to purchase. It sounds like a crazy combination but I love bacon and chocolate and really want to try this concoction.

French Style Rolling Pin
Baking cookies this holiday, I noticed that I never use the handles of my traditional rolling pin and when I did use the handles, the uneven pressure causes me to tear the dough.

Olive Oil Mister
I drizzle olive oil on everything from veggies to bread. This item made my list to help reduce the amount of oil I use when flavoring my dishes.

Sea Salt Caramels
Another unusual combination chocolate made the list. I love the combination of salty and sweet. These are a PMSing girl's dream indulgence. (If you live locally, you can find these at Wenzel's as well!)

Vintage Inspired Cupcake Apron
Aren't the cupcakes on this apron adorable?

Fashion & Beauty Cravings

Crystal and Pearl Earrings
I've been digging the combination of crystal and pearls lately. I've always loved pearls and love the vintage and classy style of these earrings.
Top: Pearl Jewel Box Earrings (waitlisted until Feb. 2010)
Bottom: (no longer available on their website)

Camel Blazer with Flattering Seaming
This screams Fall Essential to me! It is originally from J. Crew but is no longer available. At a price tag of $260, it would be out of my price range anyway. I'll be keeping my eyes out for a lower priced version.

NARS Blush in "Orgasm"
The name says it all. I can't justify spending this much on blush but everyone raves about this universally, complimentary blush color.

Home Cravings

Brushed Chrome Wall Phone
I've been drooling over this phone since we started planning our basement renovation. Someday I'll replace Jim's old college phone downstairs with this beauty.

Mario Kart for Wii
I have wanted this for Ethan to go with our Wii we received as a Christmas present from my in-laws. I think it might be game that he can play, even though he's only three.

I Love You, Blogs and Coffee
This print just screams my name this month. It combines my new found hobby of blogging and the substance that I depend on to get me going in the morning.
(This print is from Etsy, which is a site that features handmade/designed products. I could browse this website for hours.)

I think I'll leave this list laying around the house for Jim to see so that he doesn't have any excuses come my birthday next month. ;)

What products have you been craving lately?


  1. For other interested readers:

    Since Tara left the tab for one "December Cravings" on my computer...she is no longer in need of the blogging poster!

    One down 11 to go!


  2. Oh no! I'm such a dork to leave that link on your computer...or maybe I did it on purpose to spread the hints?? ;)

    I was just wanting to check the link that you had reported wasn't working.

    I'm excited for my upcoming birthday present!

  3. Austin tends to be a bit more bold then you with a hint on the computer...he will put the picture as my background pic!

  4. Hi I notice a glitch. The cupcake apron above is not a Jessie Steele apron it's an Apron Elegance apron.
