Strawberry Obsession

Summer is just around the corner and with that brings warmer temperatures, shorter shorts, later nights and juicier fruits - can't wait.  While I know most people are loving lemons this year (seriously how cute are these Kate Spade Keds?), I have a recent obsession with all things strawberry!  It started with a strawberry scented candle that I found at Home Goods (not found online sadly) which turned into a craving for strawberry shortcake and perusing Pinterest for other things I could make with my beloved strawberries and then just blew up from there.  Candles, lotion, lip balm, nail polish - I've got it all going on right now.  Here are my recent favorites!

+ Rosebud Salve Strawberry Lip Balm
This might be the best tasting lip product I've ever tried.  It takes everything in me not to just lick all of it off my lips!  Super hydrating, soothing and provides just the right amount of peachy pink color to brighten up your face.


+ Anthropologie Boulangerie Jar Tall Candle
A strawberry shortcake candle.  Need I say more?  Anthro makes some of the best candles and this one does not disappoint.  It makes your whole house smell like the 4th of July and not to mention, is adorable.


+ Strawberries & Cream Angel Cake
This Kraft Family recipe looks incredibly easy and even more delicious.  It's perfect for the upcoming Memorial Day holiday! You could even add in some blueberries to get the full red, white and blue effect.


+ OPI Strawberry Margarita
The only thing that would make this nail color better was if it were scented!  It's a happy shade of bright pink that is perfect for summer.


+ Forever 21 I Love You Berry Much PJ Romper
How adorable is this?!  I'm in need of some new pajama's and this romper is way too cute to pass up - especially at this price.


+ Bath & Body Works Garden Strawberries Hand Soap
This wouldn't be a "favorites" list without including a B&BW product ;)  Garden Strawberries is my absolute favorite hand soap I tried out this spring!  It leaves a lingering scent on your hands after washing that smells as if you just spent the morning picking strawberries.

+ Strawberry Rose Water Fizz
I think I've saved the best for last - a strawberry, rose water and champagne drink.  Yummm.  Serve it in a mason jar on a giant front porch and you've got my idea of the perfect summer afternoon.


What's your summer obsession?
