Week in Review… 4/13/12

This was another busy week!  Try as I might, I just can’t seem to get everything done.  I’m learning that it’s just the problem with blogging… too much to do, not enough time to fit it all in!  But the weekend is finally here, so there’s that to be thankful for!  Highlights of the week included a fun blogger breakfast with TJ Maxx, helping out at IFB’s fashion show for BaubleBar, and doing  a fun little guest post over at Small Shop Studio.  I also did a fun little nail art feature with Refinery 29… with two of my favorite bloggers – Dianna Baros from The Budget Babe, and Jenni Radosevich of I Spy DIY.

We’re headed to Boston for the weekend to see my friends from college and after (I spent 3.5 years living there after graduation.)  It’s one of my favorite cities, with some of my favorite people – and has been way too long since I’ve been back.  Also, we have Red Sox tickets.  Cannot. Wait.

I’ll leave you with just a few things I loved this week…

  • Alyssa’s pink hair how-to looks so good on her.  So tempting, especially since it washes out.
  • Best news ever:  Birchbox is teaming up with Gossip Girl!  You can sign up here to receive a Gossip Girl Birchbox.  If you already have a Birchbox subscription, you’ll get one automatically.
  • Geri’s leopard print shorts= so awesome.  I’m really not sure why I never thought to do something similar.  Must get a leopard stencil!

Happy Friday – wishing you all a wonderful weekend!
