Bachelorette Party Favors @ EdenFantasys!

My Dear Friends,

In the somewhat near future, I will be hosting a Bachelorette Party.  I love hosting parties, because I get to plan things down to the last detail!  One of the fun things you can do is give Party Favors to the guests.  I searched around EdenFantasys and came up with some really fun treats to make my gift baskets with!

I don't want to offend anyone at the party, so I decided to go with a more "Novelty Items" type approach.  Things that would be fun and hilarious to open in front of the guests!

Here are some of my top picks:

Heart Shaped Ice Cubes Tray - $5.99 per tray

EdenFantasys really does have an eclectic mix!  There is something for everyone!  Check out EdenFantasys today!

Office Furniture @ CSN Furniture

My Dear Friends,

I wish I could redecorate my work office with some new office furniture.  Everything in here is the same shade of generic light brown.  If you know me, you know I like things that "pop", I like a little detail, a little color, a little distinctiveness...in my furniture.

Wayfair Furniture has so many options it will take a long while to look through.  They carry everything from desks & chairs to conference tables, bookcases, & filing cabinets.  Additionally, you can shop for reception furniture or office supplies there as well!

You can even shop by collection, which is what I decided to do.  I tend to like many different furniture styles, and Wayfair Furniture has so many options, it was hard to narrow it down.  Here are a few that I really like:

Honeysuckle - Pantone's Official 2011 Color

My Dear Friends,

Yeah, I'm late in this post.  It's the middle of February and all, and I'm just now writing about the official Pantone color of 2011 - Honeysuckle.  This doesn't mean much to about 99.9% of you out there (myself included), but Pantone says that Honeysuckle is "THE" color of 2011...whatever that means:)

From the Pantone website:
"Honeysuckle emboldens us to face everyday troubles with verve and vigor. A dynamic reddish pink, Honeysuckle is encouraging and uplifting. It elevates our psyche beyond escape, instilling the confidence, courage and spirit to meet the exhaustive challenges that have become part of everyday life.

“In times of stress, we need something to lift our spirits. Honeysuckle is a captivating, stimulating color that gets the adrenaline going – perfect to ward off the blues,” explains Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. “Honeysuckle derives its positive qualities from a powerful bond to its mother color red, the most physical, viscerally alive hue in the spectrum.”

I'm not what you'd call a pink-loving girl, by any means.  I don't think I own anything pink, aside from one Old Navy perfect tee in a pink so light it's almost white (unintentional rhyming!).

That being said, it is a rather pretty color.  Say hello to Honeysuckle:

The game comes with:

906 Naughty Clues with 302 Clean Answers, 100 Game Cards, 4 Puzzle Booklets, 4 Pencils, 4 Markers, Dice & Game Board and retails at EdenFantasys for $25.99!

Hard Candy Review #2!

My Dear Friends,

Last year, when my sweet little blog was just a baby, I had the great fortune to be able to do a review of Hard Candy Cosmetics during their re-launch.  Cut to a year later and they are still going strong!  I'm excited to show you two new great Hard Candy products today.

I'm reviewing the Plumping Serum - Fat Pout Lip Gloss & the Matte Top Coat Nail Polish.

Plumping Serum - Fat Pout Lip Gloss

My first thought was that I really loved the color.  It is a pale, peachy-pink, perfect for those days where you downplay the lips.  I like that while it does plump, it's not a dramatic change.  It has a pleasant tingle at first.  One bonus worth mentioning is that it isn't sticky at all.  It has a great shine as well!  Lovely color and a great price at $4.68 at Wal-Mart.

Matte Top Coat Nail Polish (Matte-ly In Love)

I've never tried a matte top coat before.  I've never SEEN a matte top coat before, so trying this was interesting!  It layers on a complete matte finish and dries very quickly.  It works nicely on it's own for sheer, unpainted nails or as a sealant for your freshly polished nails.  It might need a refresher coat after a few days, but what polish doesn't?!  I'm hooked!  I can't seem to find it online through Wal-Mart but I will post when I locate the link!

I really enjoy Hard Candy's wide array of products.  They're youthful, fun and best of all - affordable!  You can buy the entire collection at Wal-Mart!

Memory On Hand brings style to the Flash Drive

My Dear Friends,

Have you ever needed your USB Flash Drive but didn't have it?  Maybe you've left it somewhere and now you're out of luck?  Maybe you're like my roommate and washed and DRIED yours, rendering it unusable?  Well, those days are a thing of the past with Memory On Hand.  The MoH USB Wristband/Bracelet lets you carry your Flash Drive around with you!  The ingenious idea is that you have a cute bracelet to wear that is also a fully functional flash drive! 

The MoH Band is the perfect, fashionable accessory to keep on hand. This USB Flash Drive bracelet will store any of your digital files from papers and power points to songs and pictures, the MoH Band is versatile and useful for all. MoH Bands are available in 2GB and 4GB memory capacity.

I was given the 2GB MoH Band in "Crystal Gulf" to try.  I have to admit I'm smitten with the convenience of it all.  I don't have to fumble around in my purse looking for it, or scour my room or vehicle.  There it is, right on my arm.  It's perfect. 

These bands are perfect gifts for students of all ages.  Especially in this day and age, you NEED a flash drive to save your data.  Wear yours around your wrist and take away the guesswork of where you put it!

Miss Lucy's Monograms - Review & Giveaway! {{CLOSED}}

I really enjoy getting things monogrammed.  I think it adds a personal touch to your items.  Things like overnight bags, cosmetic cases, aprons, clothes, & baby items (just to name a few) just look better monogrammed!  

Miss Lucy's Monograms offered me this beautiful cosmetic case to review.  It is black with white polka dots and has my name monogrammed on it in turquoise!  I chose the "Lucy" monogram style with the "New Yorker" font. 

You like?  I like!
 Here's what it looks like before the monogram!

There is an impressive selection of fonts for you to choose from, as well as monogram styles!   There's even a "How To Order" page to help make your experience easier!  Oh, did I mention there's Free Monogramming on EVERY order?  

Check out their Closeout Section for five pages of great deals!

Lonely Tourist Charlotte Charles

My Dear Friends,

I miss Pushing Daisies.  I miss Emerson, Olive, The Aunts, Chuck, Digby, and that gorgeous Pie Maker Ned.  One thing that I really loved about that show was the way Chuck dressed.  Her outfits were never less than spectacular.  I was inspired today to make some Polyvore sets in the spirit of good ol' Chuck.  Hope you like them!  Each item in each set is under $50!
