One year for Christmas, my beloved grandfather gave me the complete collection of Winnie the Pooh, narrated by the amazing Carol Channing, on cassette tapes. They were bright white, which made them even more special, for some reason. I listened to them non stop, falling in love with the stories, as well as Ms. Channing's gorgeously raspy voice. I recently purchased a pretty yellow (faux) leather bound book of the stories for my youngest, and we've been reading one chapter every night.
Concurrently, I discovered Mike's Hot Honey and have been drizzling it on everything. The chili infused honey is fab on cheese and crackers, whipped into a vinaigrette for salads, on top of grapefruit supremes and even on top of pizza and avocado toast. The gorgeous, amber color is so rich and beautiful, the velvety texture luxurious, and the flavor decadent.
Clare Vivier's Miel handbag reminds me of something Marie Antoinette might have carried while pretending to be a poor (but really chic) farm girl at her Petite Trianon...
And because every obsession of mine always translates into some sort of beauty product or DIY treatment, I've been using honey to soothe blemishes. Because it's antimicrobial, it can help to clear up and banish pernicious pimples. I apply the honey to each blemish with a q-tip, leaving it on for 20 - 30 minutes, while I mask the rest of my face. #multimasking
So, all this to say, I'm having a honey moment.
