Things that make me happy
Everyone who knows me and my little blog can confirm that I am generally not a "review" blogger. Although I have been approached by companies to plug their wares, I have yet to receive an incentive great enough to risk sullying my reputation as a serious writer…ha, ha.
Anyway, in Texas we try to keep things light in the summertime. So I’m postponing my regularly scheduled Pulitzer-prize-winning-tear-jerker in favor of a short list with a few of my favorite things. A little TGIF, if you will.
Category #1: Eye Candy - Jewelry
Fig Tree Jewelry (figtreejewelryandaccessories.com)
Fresh, new looks from my friend, Sarah Austin. She designs each piece with an urban or cottage chic feel. And she has a special offer for my readers: use coupon code BLG at checkout for a 10% discount! Here are a few of my favorite pieces:
|Turquoise Drop Gold Hoop Earrings|
|Sterling Labradorite Bracelet|
|Labradorite Drop with Smoky Quartz on Sterling Chain|
Run on over there and check her out!
Category #2: Eye Candy - FoodI originally saw this on my friend Julie's facebook page, because her husband, Brook Syers, had gone bonkers over this recipe. I decided to pin "Lunchbox Brownies" because that's where I save all the new recipes I want to try.
OK, you know how when you pin something on Pinterest, maybe three or four people will repin it? This has been repinned over 1,000 times! The owner of the blog (Global Brownie Ambassador) sent me a thank you message telling me her site had been going bananas ever since I pinned it. The power of social media, people!
I have tried these brownies personally, and they do not disappoint! Just be sure to have your cardiologist and personal trainer on speed-dial.

Category #3: Eye Candy - DudesI call this my "Tiger Beat for Mommies" Pinterest board:
|Don, if your car broke down, I'd gladly give you a lift.|
|I don't condone smoking, but dang, this pic of R-Patz makes me wanna light up.|
|R-Lowe is the R-Patz for us old ladies who remember crushing on him in St. Elmo's Fire.|
|And this is just funny.|
Silly, I know. Yet, thoroughly satisfying.
Alrighty, that's probably enough eye candy for today.
One can only take so much perfection in life!
We now return to our regularly scheduled, non-perfect programming...
Linking up with Just Jennifer for a fun TGIF!
