    1. That's what I hear! And then I saw the Real Housewives of the OC go there and the deal was sealed! ;) haha. But really, it looks amazing and is at the top of my to-go list.

  3. I agree with the no birth control thing. Sex before marriage causes so many problems . You all should read up on how bc can still get you pregnant and then you can unknowingly abort the child if you still take the bc.

  4. Mmm I'm now craving a burrito bowl and uhm yeah I need to learn how to do makeup properly or something lol. Also if I could justify spending $50+ on a crib sheet I would totally buy a ton from Iviebaby. But then I'd want the crib looking cute at all times and leaks happen with babies sooo cheaper ones it is for now lol.

  8. I kept hearing about "Her," but I hadn't seen the trailer until now. Looks like my kind of movie! The premise seems interesting and it doesn't hurt that I'll get to hear Scarlett Johansson's lovely voice for the running time of the film. ;)

    I think Woody Allen is a fascinating human being. I'm not always down with his life choices, but he's made some excellent and iconic films. I'm really looking forward to seeing Blue Jasmine this week!

    I wish more people, especially women, were able to see those before and after makeup pictures. We would all be a lot more comfortable in our own skin!
