During my errands yesterday, I decided to stop by the newly discovered thrift store in my neighborhood.  I was specifically looking for a new luggage piece/album carrier but of course a purse, rosie shirt and 3 silk patterned scarves joined the pile :)  More on the bag… (more…)

Monday.  A little bitter since we got some random snow this weekend (those poor tulips) but as soon as I saw my kitties on Moderncat’s gallery this morning, I was happy again :)  Desher and Boris = blue paws.

My friend, Lindsay, told me about a friend of hers getting married soon and the fabulous gift she got them from their honeymoon registry!  The trend in budget-friendly honeymoon options is on the rise. With many couples co-habituating before marriage, why not have your guests conveniently help pay for that dream honeymoon of yours?!  You’ve got most of your housewares anyway :) Sign up here.

Good Friday!  Yesterday, I ventured into Barnes & Noble to find a fast, low-calorie cook book.  No way can I just go into a bookstore without flipping through my favorite magazines!  I wanted to share two of my absolute favs with you, and hopefully you’ll feel the creative satisfaction that I do :)  More info… (more…)

For some reason, I’ve been subscribed to Redbook magazine and have been receiving issues all year. While the ‘kid’ and ‘what’s your big plan’ articles stress me out a bit, they do have good tid-bits (more enjoyable with a cup of tea of course).  Why…I wouldn’t have stumbled upon a new ice cream line by Häagen-Dazs with only 5 ingredients each and less calories :)  It actually may sway my savory/salty liking to sweet sometime soon…

Boho Braid Love

We’ve seen hairstyles with braids in the scene for a while now.  I was reminded how much I adore the messy-out-of-your-face look when I saw a friend’s facebook pic recently.  I can still french braid my own and sometimes wear messy braided pigtails.  But I’ve always had one dilemma…I can’t seem to figure out how to do a side braid!!  Oh why oh why!  I do have bangs so I find that a challenge as well (on top of my fingers protesting).  Wish me luck! Hair Brained, Cosmo, & A Braid Runs Through It.
