5 Things

Happy Wednesday Friends!!! Where has this week gone? Here is a quick post with just a few... well precisely five things that are making my week just a little bit sweeter...

Burt's Bees "Aloe & Witch Hazel" Hand Sanitizer
I was so sick of the gel and foam sanitizers that left my hands feeling dirtier than before I used them, or the overwhelming perfume scent that most purse sized sanitizers seem to 'boast.' This purse sized spray is perfect. It lightly coats my hands, and leaves them feeling clean, and surprisingly soft...and the smell--a natural, fresh scent that is surprisingly soft as well. 

Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Extreme Wear "Bubblegum Pink"
I couldn't be more obsessed with this nail polish color. To me it is the perfect summer color, and at $2.49...It's the perfect price. The polish has stayed on my toes (flawlessly) for about 5-6 days, however within a day--it chips off my nails. But for the price, and the fabulous color (now only for my toes)--I can't complain too much.

Fogo de Chao
I don't normally comment on restaurants. However, I was out of town this past weekend, and had the chance to try some delicious food and drinks. One of my favorites: Fogo de Chao, an international chain, of authentic Brazilian Steakhouses was simply incredible--not only because of the food, but also due to their impeccable service and attentiveness to the patrons. We went in for 'just a drink',' which turned into a memorable food experience. My advice--go on a very empty stomach, and don't fill up on the salad bar (whoops!). I would definitely return, and wish that my city had one of these restaurants--though my waistline pry doesn't :)

Eccolo Journal 'World Traveler'
One of my favorite things to do, is write (obviously)... However some things I write, are just for me...Mostly those--oh my goodness I have to get this out of my head and on paper--type of things :) Regardless of the subject or the magnitude--I like writing my thoughts in a pretty place--and as of lately, my Eccolo Journal has become just that place... The best part of it for me (aside from the low price) is that it fits in my purses--so I can always write my thoughts down--no matter when or where they strike.

MBG is Coming Home
One of my longest/bestest friends comes home this weekend (and her hubby too--who is pretty awesome as well)...and I get to see her this coming Monday night!!! I couldn't be more excited. Seriously. I've never looked so forward to a Monday the way I am this week.

Hope each and every one of you has at least one fabulous thing getting you through this week!
Thanks for reading :)


  1. You look beautiful in that bottom picture! I love when good friends come home and it's like they never left at all! :) Super exciting.

    Also thanks for the hand sanitizer suggestion. I am TERRIFIED of catching whooping cough (apparently it's now reached epidemic level in WA) so I'm washing my hands like nobody's business!!

  2. I am kinda in love with that Eccolo journal, not to mention the price is totally right! Have a wonderful weekend!
