Peanut Butter, Not Peeps!

When it comes to Easter candy, my favorite by a long shot is the Reese's Peanut Butter Egg.  It is peanut butter perfection ~ the perfect proportion of peanut butter and chocolate.  The regular size Reese's peanut butter cup is close, the miniatures - yech, not quite right, but the there is just something about the size, shape and chocolate to peanut butter ratio in the egg that makes it perfect.  Those fluorescent marshmallow chicks don't tempt me a bit, but I can't let Easter pass without a perfect peanut butter treat ~ a Reese's egg.

Thanks to Maggie for this Pearl!

 I have to give credit to my stylish niece, Maggie, for this favorite Pearl.  A few years ago at our Christmas "Favorite Things" exchange, she gave each of us gals one of these - Lash Blast Mascara by Cover Girl - and it has been one of my favorite things ever since!  Thicker lashes without the ugly raccoon eyes I get from some brands.  I do buy department store cosmetics, but when it comes to mascara, drugstore lines are the way to go.  Why pay over $20 for mascara when you have to replace it every few months anyway?  And this mascara is the best I've found - well it was, until.....

Cover Girl came out with a new hybrid - Lash Blast Fusion - for volume and length.  Now my scraggly little lashes can be thicker and longer, and still without the ugly raccoon eyes.  Thanks, Maggie, for this pearl!

PS  I've added a "Follower" tab off to the side, but so far, I only have one Follower (and that's my mom!), so if you are a regular reader, I would love you to make it official and add yourself as a Follower, too!

Pretty Little Thing

Over the last couple of years, I've gone mostly electronic, and even more so in the last two months with my new iPhone, but I still like to keep a notebook in my purse for jotting down a quick note.  And for that, I love these pretty little notebooks from Greenroom.  I like the paper size, pretty covers and slim profile.  They are about 4 x 5 in, a little bigger than a standard index card.  In addition, they make a great and inexpensive travel journal.  Look for them in the stationary aisle at Target.  The only trouble you have is picking out which cover design you like the best!
