Last night I went on a lovely little date with my husband. He took me to 518 West which is a cute little Italian restaurant downtown. Afterwards, because he knows me so well, we went to a Frozen Yogurt shop and got dessert! And it was surprisingly mild out so we were able to sit outside on a picnic bench. It was a great end to a long week. :)

I plan on a doing a bit of crafting this weekend too! I bought a candle from Target (my FAV) a few weeks ago and I’ve finally burned it all that I can. So I’m planning on “melting” out all the other wax, possibly spray painting it, and turning it into a “catch all dish”. If it’s a success, I’ll share it here! And in all likelihood, I’ll be working on this project with my new favorite blogger. :)
Finally, I’ve been on a desperate search for a new blog template. There’s a good chance I’ve already seen everything that is out there but I’m open to any suggestions! I’m looking for clean and simple, and inspired by these colors:

    Well, I just started following your blog this week and from this post I see we are neighbors! Fun. I’m in Apex.

    Love your blog. Seriously can’t wait for my keratin treatment to wear out so I can try some of your hair tutorials.

    Congrats to the winner, but I must admit I’m in the new mood to change up my room again, and also the wall color. LOVE this but maybe a lighter grey.

      Hi Ree! I just tweeted this post to my flloowers because I am sure there are a lot of ladies out there…and even gentlemen who would be interested in this post. This is great! So many exist that I didn’t even know are out there. I’d be happy to save my money and spend it on something better. Beauty Fix sounds like something I’d like, just once a quarter I think is the frequency I prefer!

      GREAT POST!! Ah I love this so much because I was dneatibg making the MyGlam switch.I think this month’s Birchbox was a surprise because the last few months have been horrible…this month was a huge surprise.I didn’t realize Myglam came in a makeup cool. I also didn’t know Birchbox was made by Harvard grads. Interesting!!You don’t like Color Club?? Why not? I love the colors they offer! (At least the ones I’ve seen…only gotten one in my Birchbox!!)Anyways…thanks for the great review <3

      I’m so picky when it comes to face and body products that usullay I end up not trying all the samples even from Neiman Marcus or Barney’s GWP, so there is no chance I will find use to more than a couple things from any of these boxes .
