WO: Weekly Obsessions

Valentine’s Day is almost here, which means love is in the air. Well, love and STDs. Naturally, this week’s obsessions are all inspired by VD Day and treats for your sweet:

  1. [Mail] Cards from The Oatmeal: When you care enough to send the very best, go somewhere else. If your partner has any semblance of a sense of humor, though, these are the way to go.
  2. [Eat] Lush Confections: This Tampa-based business combines two loves — dessert and alcohol — in one delicious truffle. I recently sampled the Irish Car Bombs, but the Sexual Chocolate would be perfect for next week.  Shop on FB / on etsy.
  3. [Listen] Sweet Beats: Nothing quite says “romance” like jamz from Marvin Gaye, Color Me Badd, Boyz II Men and The Backstreet Boys.*
  4. [Share] Snarky Sentiments:  If you’re not feeling the love, you can also send anti-valentine prints to express your disdain for it all. Thank you, social media!

Wishing you all a fantastic week leading up to Cupid’s Birthday (that is what we celebrate, right?).

If you’re lucky, you’ll soon get to read about my Valentine’s crafting disaster. That is, once the blood and tears dry.
