i promise

when i tell you i still go kicking and screaming into talbots whenever i am with my mom and she insists on shopping there. its usually a dreadful experience. however, i recently discovered talbots handbag collection and i have to say, i am impressed! the price is great, the bags are stylish, and the colors are perfect. so, mom, the next time you want to go into talbots, i will adjust my attitude! :)

i'm gonna need a cocktail..

i leave for the glorious town of wilmington, delaware tomorrow for work. for 11 days. you can only imagine my excitement as i gear up to leave my hubby and pup for almost two weeks. booo hooo.

okay, enough complaining. anyways, wanted to give everyone a heads up that i might be blogging a little less over the next 2 weeks while i am away although i will try to post some every couple of nights at the very least.

while i am away, cocktails will be essential for my sanity. is that bad?! nonetheless, here is my drink of choice lately and boy is it delicious. here are the ingredients right off of bethenny frankel's website for a skinny girl margarita. bottoms up!

2 oz of Clear Premium Tequila (count 1, 2 while you pour, no need for measuring)
Tiny splash of Orange Liquor
Juice of 4 Fresh Lime Wedges

add shine

hope everyone had an awesome weekend! aj and i are currently feeling depressed now that our trip is over. :(

i have heard from a lot of avid sparrow branch followers to continue posting about products i find and fall in love with. well, i am in love with this new product i just started using. a couple of weeks ago i got my haircut and was loving the way the stylist made my hair look so i decided to buy the products she used on my hair. all of them. they all are made by this line thermafuse which is only available in salons. while i like the shampoo and conditioner that i purchased, i really love this serum the most. it is an oil based product i use when my hair is wet and smells like sugar! because my hair is very fine and thin, i was skeptical to use an oil serum because i was afraid my hair would look dirty and greasy. instead, it made my hair ultra smooth, silky, and smell like heaven! i am completely sold and now can not ever wash my hair without using this product afterwards. it is a must have!
