Wish No. 9

A Yudu because I have always wanted my own screen printing system and this one has endless possibilities.

Wish No. 8

A subscription to Body + Soul Magazine, which I will be gifting to myself, because I have bought the past few issues on newsstands and have come to really love this particular magazine.

Wish No. 7

A really great Manicure/Pedicure in a fabulous color of OPI Nail Polish.

Wish No. 6

An Atlanta "Daycation" which I have been planning forever ...
I would finally go visit the Georgia Aquarium then check out Bodies The Exhibition at Atlantic Station and do a little first-time shopping at Ikea.

Wish No. 5

I really need a new pair of Asics Running Shoes since my current pair are so worn out, one has a hole at the toe. I have been pondering this pair here.

Wish No. 4

A bold and vibrant Bouquet of Dahlias, a favorite flower, in various shapes/sizes would be gorgeous.

Exciting News

This book is one of my favorites (recommend to female readers in particular) and today discovered that a movie is being filmed, to be released in 2011 starring Julia Roberts! I am very excited but really hope they make the movie as good to watch as the book is to read.

Wish No. 3

The Sartorialist by Scott Schuman

I want this book, coming out on August 12th, because he knows style and photographs like no one else ... to me, meeting him would be like meeting a favorite celebrity. The hardback would be even cooler but quite a splurge. Check out his infamous blog here.

A Clean Miracle

So, the brother was coming for a visit this weekend and some cleaning was definitely needed. I really wanted to get my shower sparkling and was recommended (thanks Mom) the Action Scrubber by Scrubbing Bubbles to use as my weapon in battle. OMG. It was like being in an infomercial where the product really does work!! I mean this thing cleaned the entire shower so well, getting off dirt etc. I didn't even know existed. I love this thing and will definitely continue to purchase/use this in the future.

Freebie Alert

I always browse the sale ads/coupons in the Sunday Newspaper and today came across a great deal + freebie.
Ruby Tuesday had an insert that included a Buy One Get One Free Coupon (for an entree) and when you join their So Connected club online you'll receive one plus they offer you a FREE Burger on Your Birthday!
This is a pretty good deal, even for non-beef eaters like me since they offer a variety of chicken or turkey burgers too.

Wish No. 2

I love to watch movies, especially the ones that are amazing films but not always "mainstream" enough to come to the local video shop. A Netflix Gift Subscription would be the perfect remedy to this situation.

Wish No. 1

Half a Dozen Cupcakes ... the delicious and healthy versions from Dulce Vegan (lemon blackberry=yum) would be awesome or else a tasty assortment from a really great cupcake shop.

My 25 Birthday Wishes

I have about 14 days until turning 25 and decided to do a series of posts called, My 25 Birthday Wishes. I have some that are actually realistic and others are dreaming big, but that is what birthdays are about after all.

Currently Reading

I was going to do a post about my summer reading list quite some time ago, but that never happened. So, instead I'll just post what book my nose is about to be stuck in ... "Never Let Me Go" by Kazuo Ishiguro. I've heard good things that will hopefully prove to be true when I begin reading today.


From my garden, aren't they lovely?

Happy Monday

Ah Monday, the day everyone goes back to the daily grind of routine ... well here is a little blast-from-the-past video to make you laugh and smile, because you really need that on a Monday.

Pardon My Language

I have liked this print for quite some time and finally decided that I needed the inspiration enough to justify the purchase.

You can check out other cool stuff here at the OrangeBeautiful Etsy Shop.

I Heart Coldplay

This is a really uniquely creative and adorable video for such a huge band, just another reason they are one of my favorites.

This is going to be so good ... for a sneak peek at some images go here
