Thursday Things

It’s time for another installment of Thursday Things

You may find yourself wanting things that you never even knew existed before you read it this post.  Apologies in advance to your wallet.

1. Precut Brownie Pan Set

This would solve uniform slicing issues, and making messy rows issue, but what if I want to frost the brownies or cake?


Putting frosting on each individual piece will be a laborious and messy process.  Frosting things one-at-a-time is way harder than a pan-at-once frosting application, in my experience.  Which explains why I rarely make cupcakes and make bars instead.  One fell swoop rather than one-by-one.

Or what if I don’t want the pieces that exact pre-determined and fixed size?  Sometimes I like my bars or brownies bigger or smaller, depending on my mood and the recipe at hand.

But for the price, who cares!

3. Or this wheeled-cutter would make much less mess and may solve all my slicing problems.

4. This Betsey Johnson bag.  Or any of her stuff.  Love it all.

I got married in a hot pink Betsey Johnson dress ten years ago.   And I’d do it over again.

5. Michael Stars anything

So soft.  Texture is big for me.  If it’s not soft, I don’t want to wear it.

6. Free People anything

Funky, hip, unique, artsy, Bohemian.  That’s why I love Free People.

7. a Clarisonic

Does anyone have one?  Thoughts & reviews, please!  How has it helped or benefited your skin?  Any noticeable and positive changes?  Some skin care products either don’t work or make you break out, but I know many people like these and I’d love to hear some firsthand stories.

8. A quality food processor like this Cuisinart

Anyone have a Cuisinart or Kitchen Aid and want to share your thoughts on yours?  I currently only have a Vita and do 100% of everything with it.  For the money, I should, right?

However, there are times I feel like a food processor would be the better tool for the job.

But, I don’t want to buy a cheapie model, only to be disappointed in it’s workhorse abilities.  I am all for saving money, but many times, on kitchen tools like this, you are money ahead in the long run to buy something pricier rather than the no-name model that’s on clearance at Target. Do you have a food processor that you like or don’t like?

Tip: Bed Bath & Beyond has 20% off coupons that never expire.  Hoard them.  They make purchases like food processors a bit easier to swallow.

9. A lifetime supply of Coco Chanel Mademoiselle

It’s been in my arsenal for years and I never tire of it

10. A lifetime supply of Chocolate

Maybe some Chocolate Coconut Cashew Butter for starters

Have I succeeded in making you want things you never knew existed or that you didn’t know you “needed”?

It’s fun to window shop on the internet.  No harm done until you pull out your credit card.  Or have your cc numbers memorized.  Including the 4 digit code on the front and 3 digit code on the back.  Ahem.

What are your Thursday Things that you have your eye on?

Any feedback on any of the products mentioned is also greatly appreciated.

Reminder to enter the Hoodie & Leggings Giveaway  It ends Friday.

  1. I just got a cheapie Cuisinart food processor and it’s AMAZING. Seriously, got it at target for $30 and it’s fantastic! And free people??? I worked there for a year. They gave me a 40% discount (that worked at Urban Outfitters and Anthro too). Needless to say, my entire paycheck went right back into the store. My style all the way!

  2. I have a cuisenart blender and food processor in one. The base stays the same but I just switch off the top part for whatever I need. It works SO well and I got it for a great deal on Rulala. Cuisenart makes great quality products in my opinion.
    And I use chanel chance, love it and never want to switch it.

  3. Can you use more than one coupon at a time at BB&B? I always assumed that you could only use one for one purchase.

    Not that I have any coupons – I haven’t shopped there in a LONG time. So much stuff there to browse through though.

  4. Okay for my real comment:

    I want to see the wedding dress! That sounds awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Telephoto lens for the iPhone???? Whaaaat!???

    I want agood food processor. Love my Vita but hate scraping banana whip and noosh cheese out of the bottom!

  5. I just bought the Cusinart 16 Cup Food Processor from Williams and Sonoma and I love it! It’s pretty, stainless and is just plain awesome. I checked out the reviews and it’s 5 stars. I can actually fit 4 cups of nuts in it to make peanut butter. It has a retractable cord, a lock box for all the blades. It makes dough, slices, dices and more. I just got it and so far I love it! No complaints from me. It makes everything go fast and easy to use. It came with a little cookbook and 90 minute DVD, which I still haven’t watched. If I change my mind about it, I’ll let you know!

  6. Alright! You made me come out of the woodwork :) Totally want #1 and I don’t even own an iphone but when I do, I will want that lens! #8 would also be welcome.

  7. Fun! I have that same Cuisinart. I saved up for it for 6 months and threw out my 10 year old processor the same day. I was SO pumped… but I’m kinda disappointed in it. It doesn’t make nut butters like my previous one. I WISH I wouldn’t have thrown it out. It’s good… but when you make a nut butter a week, it’s kinda challenging. I ended up ‘borrowing’ my Moms haha.

  8. I have a Kenwood Multipro, which looks like that Cuisinart you have pictured. Cuisinart is not a brand I have seen here in NZ. I LOVE IT. When my niece went overseas to live, I became a little down :( My man decided to cheer me up with a $500 food processor and it truly did distract me for weeks as I tried everything. I makes really good nut butter, which was something I’d blown up two blenders trying to do. It does get a bit hot doing it though… There is only one thing that the Kenwood lacks, which is a mincer/grinder for grains. I would like to be able to make flour or to grind sprouts into a paste for sprouted, fermented breads. I’m now lusting after a Champion juicer, which can do that as well as expeller juice pressing and I think it might do a better (quicker and maybe not as noisy) job of nut butters too.

    I made your cookies and cream fudge two weeks ago (pics were on my blog) and tonight I am having a go at your peanut butter nutella one. I’ve had to be creative because I’m a bit allergic to peanuts (get the ‘punched in both eyes’ look if I eat them) and … what IS a ‘graham cracker’? I read on the interwebs that it’s a sweet malt cracker (i.e. not a cracker at all), so I’ve found something approximating that.

  9. I totally have my eye on those kitcheny gadgets and about a million things on pinterest.

  10. My mom and I are both using Clarisonics and we both love the product. As one who used it during high school, it really helped me skip over that awkward acne stage – it keeps my skin clean, minimizes breakouts and makes it feel smooth. Speaking of smooth, I’ve had keratosis pilaris my whole life, and the Clarisonic has really helped minimize the appearance of it on my face.

    My mom’s usage of the clarisonic has peeled years off of her face! She really loves it and definitely notices a decrease in the visibility of her wrinkles – I’m not sure of the science of how that works, but it sure looks like it’s working. Maybe it’s magic…

  11. I got my mom the brownie pan for Christmas last year, she loves it! And I just got a Cuisinart 11c food processor. It’s heavy duty and definitely gets the job done. I’m waiting for a BB&B coupon so I can get a juicer!

  12. Poking around on the Internet is so much fun, but then I usually find a ton of things I could never afford, lol. I actually really like the Hamilton Beach food processor I got at Wal-Mart. I’ve had it for almost five years now and I am constantly using it to make banana soft serve, balls, bites, and what not. I really wish I had a Vita-mix because I think some things would be a lot easier with it. But I do love it!

  13. Fun list! Too funny on the iPhone lens, pretty sure I won’t get one. :-P

    I do have a Clarisonic Mia and love it! Nothing removes makeup and daily grime like it, totally worth it.

    I also have that Cusinart Food Processor and love it! It has a lot of parts to clean, but it’s boss for creating raw dessrts, guac, hummus, banana solid serve, salsa … the list goes on! Never buy a cheap food processor, they can barely handle frozen bananas.

    I want tons of stuf too – new running gear from Luluemon, fall boots, new clothes, lenses, etc.

    • I thought of you on both the Clar (I know you have one and like it…didnt realize you LOVE it)
      On the food proc. I know you have a Cuisinart and knowing you have both a Cuis and a Vita and still think the Cuis is Boss on raw desserts, that’s good to know.

      “Never buy a cheap food processor, they can barely handle frozen bananas.” <-- SO TRUE!!

  15. I got an Oster 10 cup food processor through my work reward points system. It retails for only $80 and it’s done pretty good so far! It doesn’t have tons of attachments but it works great for everything I really need it for. It seems to be only available in Canada though.
