Current addictions

* French vanilla mocca hot choco-latte powder (made by Chilla) - seriously yum , creamy, instant and worth every cent (South Africans can get it from Wellness Warehouse or @home)
>
* My heart rate monitor chest strap (Polar brand) - At the beginning of last year I got one, but I only really started using it last month. Since I started taking it to gym, I've been amazed at how it helps with my cardio workouts. The chest strap syncs with the machine (if your pic the "CPR" option) and it tries to keep your heart rate constant (and is accurate).

* Red wine - After years of trying to "get into" wine, last year I finally did (I'm sure my regular readers noticed this). Now I'm absolutely addicted to most red wines. My favourite types are: Shiraz, Pinotage and Cabernet Sauvignon

* Owl City - I am really loving this bands music (and the cute lyrics) at the moment. Click HERE to visit the official website.

*Grilled lamb chops- Lately I just can't get enough of lamb chops . The way I love to cook them is to cover them in olive oil, salt them, sprinkle on some barbecue spice, then I grill them until they are brown and the fat is super crispy (aka almost burnt). *drool*

  2. So my browser didn't load all my tabs this morning (i usually have a gazillion open!) and I'm taking the opportunity to actually visit the blogs I follow in Google Reader. Your posts on addictions always inspire me to try something new. That choc vanilla thingie is topping my shopping list for Feb (January has been rough on the bank balance!). Things I'm addicted to at the mo: Kahlua Fudge coffee from Peacocks; Google Maps; Sia's Some People Have Real Problems album (thanks to Sid!); Short shorts (despite all the holiday braais, try to stop me from wearing them!); Kirstenbosch Gardens; ah i could go awwn and awwn!

    I am addicted to coffee at the moment. With froth machine milk. I never drank coffee till I discovered how the froth machine works. Now I have a mustache. lol.

  14. i have to say I had my first boxing session with MR OMS yesterday and truly that is (once again) my obsession!

    On a less *healthy* note I guess if I could eat MARS bars daily that would do it for me....its weird considering I am NOT a chocolate girl?

  20. I love Owl City, don't they sound a little bit like a synthed-up Something Corporate to you? (pre Jack's Mannequin)
