July’s Super Six: from homewares to tattoos

UTKellyRev2ColumnAs we head into the heart of the summer, my new list of passions

By Kelly Hockenberry, Columnist, The Times

Time for the July version of the Sunday Super Six!

Is it just me or do you feel like July 4th is the half-way point of summer? Boooooooooooooo!

Here are my latest obsessions:










  • C Wonder is having a sale! My husband and I will be married for TWENTY YEARS this fall. I really think that we should have a party so I can register for all new housewares. This will be on my list! You can buy it now (place setting for eight, please). Check it out at www.cwonder.com










  • While you are on the site ordering my plates, I really NEED this bracelet, too. It says I “Heart” NYC, which is true….I really, really do.  I fantasize about living there with unlimited resources.










  • I just bought this t-shirt from Ashley Brooke Designs (www.ashleybrookedesigns.com). It says “Everyday I’m Hustlin” in gold glitter. I mean…HAD to have it. Obsessed.










  • Temporary tattoos. The only acceptable kind in my opinion. How cute is this one? I would put it on my wrist a la Miley Cyrus. (www.tattly.com)










  • Pear, Walnut & Ricotta Crostini from www.marthastewart.com. I love easy recipes with very few ingredients. This looks perfect for a hot, summer night with a cool, bubbly drink.










  • Every self-respecting blogger/fashionista needs this Clare Vivier fold-over animal print clutch. It is EVERYWHERE (as seen here on Pinterest). I love the look of mixed prints and this bag. FAB-U-LOUS. www.clarevivier.com


OK, I’m finished. I think that July’s list is absolutely SUPER. Don’t you?

    Hey Kelly Fan!
    This heat is BRUTAL, right? It’s hard to look cute when you’re melting! You get major bonus points for exercising outside in the first place.
    I think a headband is perfectly acceptable! Have you seen the colorful braided versions by UnderArmour? I saw them at Dick’s last week.
    Stay cool!!!!

    Kelly what do you recommend for this disgusting heat when exercising and playing tennis so I do not look like a big sweaty animal- is wearing a headband ok?
