Spring Cleaning Crushes!

Happy Friday Eve! Hope everyone plans to enjoy the upcoming weekend, I know I certainly do after a busy week in the office. Today's post started off as a general "crushes" post, but then a theme started to emerge - that's right, spring cleaning! So, without further ado, here are my current spring cleaning crushes...

1. Angela from

I discovered Angela's website/blog earlier this week after searching for a Green Monster recipe, and spent most of my free time the past few days perusing recipes, reading inspiring stories, and drooling over the items in her bakery. I've also made a Green Monster every morning this week, and it feels great to do something good for my health - plus, it tastes great! I'm "spring cleaning' my diet, and this website is oh so helpful. Don't know what a Green Monster is? Trust me, you want to find out. Go here to whip up one of your own - you'll thank me (and Angela!) later.

2. New Bedding!
After years of having a duvet and struggling to stuff my king-sized down comforter back in it each time I washed it, I'd had enough. Thankfully, Target has some really cute bedding that didn't break the bank! Behold the lovelies:

Pebble Quilt and Shams by Target Home. Pillows by DwellStudio for Target

A close up of the pillows - these are GORGEOUS in person, and 100% silk!

3. New bathroom accessories
Nothing freshens up a bathroom like new accessories. I plan on purchasing the following from for the master bathroom (all images from

Arbor Shower Curtain

Stone Resin Bath Accessories
Cirrus Rug in Pollen

4. Method's Le Scrub Bathroom Cleaner

I read about this uh-may-zing product in this month's Reader's Digest. (Yes, I am aware that I am only 29. No, I don't get the large-print version. Yet.) I squirt some of this on my trusty extendable-handle bathroom scrubber, and my least favorite chore is over in no time. Plus it smells good. AND they don't test on animals, which is always crush-worthy in my book.

5. A fresh breeze!
Finally, spring cleaning wouldn't be complete in my house without the windows open and a fresh, warm, breeze - ushering winter away for at least the next 6 months. 


What are your spring cleaning crushes/must-haves?

Welcome to Crushing On...! I started this blog to share my loves, lusts, wishes, products, ideas, and to create a forum where others can do the same.

A quick intro: I'm a twenty-something girl who loves my dogs, getting a good deal, and a hot cup of coffee (or twelve). I love reading, shopping, fresh sheets, and good music. I can also be random when making lists.

Now that we're practically BFFs, here's what I'm currently crushing on...

1. Marc by Marc Jacobs Simone Striped Skirt

Add a tank, some fun wedges, and voila! Instant summer chic!

2. My iPad 2
 This little gadget is my first major purchase from Apple. It is I'd like to say I'm using it for scholarly pursuits and downloading the MIT app - but let's be honest here: I'm mostly playing Angry Birds and Scrabble. It's very user friendly and fits in my purse. It's possible I may be beyond crushing on this...I fear I'm officially obsessed.

3. This post I found via one of my favorite blogs, A.Co est. 1984, called "A Better Life In 100 Ways" on Dragos Roua's personal development blog.
So inspiring. I've only read down to # 32, because I'm trying to really absorb what each section is saying. I've found myself referring back to it over and over this week, and can't wait to finish it!

So, everyone - what are YOU crushing on today?
