rose buds + vanilla

Hello, Weekend! Hello, Summer! Hello, Beautiful! Right to it then…I stumbled on this Vera Wang Embrace Rose Buds and Vanilla Eau De Toilette pretty randomly and it was such a surprise I’d thought I’d share a my little, uh, review-aye-poo.

Did you know there are super cute free printables available over at Caravan? I’m a stationery addict, so this news almost sent me over the edge. Seriously… too adorable.

glove and boots

So, I have a thing for puppets. That’s okay, right? It’s not like I collect PEZ dispensers (much) or watch cartoons shows (only on Saturdays, and only the cool ones).

I’ll post more about my…

reduce your daily lunchprint

Quick post today about sandwiches. Or plastic sandwich bags, rather. I almost didn’t want to eat my lunch when the time came. Have you ever noticed that plastic sandwich bags tend to make their contents (sandwich, pretzels) taste like plastic? Am I the only one who notices this every time I eat a sandwich I’ve…
