Ridiculous addictions…

It has been said that I often show obsessive behaviour towards shallow things. I suppose you could call them fads. I obsess about these things for a short time, get bored and then move on to something else. My tendency towards obsessive behaviour stops at shallow things like food and beauty products, no bunny boiling here he hee. Here are my current obsessions…

1. Maple Syrup:

P1020896What do I want to eat you ask? The answer is anything I can put maple syrup on. This obsession started in West Egg in Chicago last November. Maple syrup on everything? I’m in! I couldn’t find maple syrup in my local supermarket this month so I had to settle on Golden Syrup Maple Flavour. It’s not exactly the same but it’ll do. I noticed that The Organic Supermarket have a huge bottle of organic Canadian Maple Syrup for €9, I will be buying this from their website later today.

2. Keogh’s raspberry scones:

P1020890These are the most amazing scones I have ever tasted. I have tried every scone on sale in Keogh’s on Trinity Street but raspberry is on the obsession list.

3. Pretty headbands:

P1020926I feel like every outfit looks prettier with a headband lately. I need to control myself! These two are from Penneys and were a bargain.

4. Working out – Ministry of Sound Pump it up:

I just can’t get enough of this dvd. It’s fun, fast paced and takes no prisoners. I’m addicted to the after effects of this workout and the results (video coming!). I want to do this every day but stop myself. Every other day is more sensible, muscles need recovery time. I usually do the warm up and one of the dance sections with the Bums n’ tums.  I’m all about hardcore workouts and this one has become a bit of an obsession. I now have abs of steel…not so pretty.

What are your current obsessions?
