Happy Sunday!

I hope you’re having a very lovely weekend! :)  We’ve been having extraordinarily beautiful weather over the past few days, so I’ve tried to spend some time outdoors throwing the ball with Mellan.  At present, he is snoozin’ from all the retrieving.

Happy Sunday!

Happy Lunar New Year! :)  We spent most of yesterday afternoon and evening with my family (playing mahjong and stuffing our faces with food), but today will be a bit more low-key.

Happy Sunday!

How was your Saturday? What are your plans for Sunday?  Mellan is dire need of a bath, so that’s my big to-do item.  It’s one of those things where thinking about it always seems worse than it is, because he’s really a rather good dog when it comes to the bath. As soon as he hears the water go, he runs and hops in the tub (with a little urging).  At the end, I tell him to “dry,” so he’ll shake off some excess water.  The only thing I have to make sure to do is block the stairs, because he will race down those like he was in the Canine Olympics.

Happy Sunday!

How are you? What are your Sunday plans?  I hope you’re having a very lovely weekend, and perhaps, getting treated to some spring-like weather, since we’re fully entrenched in spring beauty reviews now.  It’s actually been incredibly chilly (for us Californians, that is)–I remember looking at the temperature at 6AM earlier this week, and it was 28 degrees!  The late morning/early afternoon is finally becoming a bit more like what I’m used during January.  I would not do well in a place where it snowed regularly!  I’m hoping to find time to head to Michael’s–I really want to replace some of the glass cylinders I used for Christmas decorations with a Starry Night theme instead for regular decor.

Happy Sunday!

I hope you’re having a lovely weekend thus far!  Yesterday, I was down in Santa Barbara with my family to celebrate and watch my mom graduate from her PhD program (congratulations, Mom!).  We tried to make it a mini-vacation, since I’m loathe to take any real vacations, so we checked out some local restaurants and Shaun and I had a little spa day on Friday.  Now, it’s time to get some work done!

Happy Sunday!

Putting together a list of favorites from 2012 wasn’t easy, but it’s one thing I really enjoy about the end of year: reading everyone else’s top picks for the year.  It’s interesting to see what products stood out among a deluge of products. I forget where I read but know it was recently: over 8,000 beauty products launch each year (what!), which is both cringe-worthy (how can one ever keep track and try it all?) and incredible (there will never be a day without something new to write about!).
