EDIT// I just woke up to the horrible news from Japan, reading updates from the Guardian live blog and donating to the Red Cross.
I really thought I would have this post written on Wednesday, but alas, I've been distracted. Where did this week go?! At least I can count another paper done. Only four left till I have a master's degree!
Thank you so much for the nude polish recommendations, I am going to try out as many as I can get my hands on. The first color, and the easiest to find was Amanda's recommendation for American Apparel's Summer Peach. It's not exactly the nude I was looking for, but it's such a great light peach shade. I love the large amount of colors available from American Apparel's polish collection, but I find they can be streaky and definitely require two coats. The polish dries quickly which is perfect for impatient me. Have you tried them? What do you think?
I have to mention my latest OLO fragrance acquisition. Dafne was a birthday gift from Anabela and is the perfect scent for spring!
This week I found time to try out Joy the Baker's recipe for Whole Wheat Chocolate Brown Sugar Sugar Cookies (phew! What a mouthful!) and they are so delicious. I ran out of brown sugar, so I used organic cane sugar with a tbsp of molasses. They addition of whole wheat flour makes me feel like I can eat ten at once! (okay, I did) I can't wait to try her Cinnamon Sugar Pull-Apart Bread (cue mouth-watering)!
katrina- thanks! it's American Apparel nail lacquer in Rose Bowl. Thanks for the polish recommendation!
Amanda- I was wear American Apparel in that post, as you can see I took your advice on Summer Peach, thanks!
Danielle- Sula sounds awesome, I'm trying to track it down in Toronto. thanks!
Julie- pretty clothes are tempting me, too!
Kate- I am compiling a dangerously large J.Crew order, I'm adding Milky Way to it. Thanks for the recommendation.
Michelle- I have to go to David's now! Your ballet flats sound awesome.
Jane- I just switched to rubber boots, one step closer. I also have to check out that flower market, more flowers required!
naomemandeflores- thanks for the recommendation!
Artisticpixie- I am trying to track down Zoya's in Toronto, thanks for the recommendation!
yoel- I wasn't sure it would work, but so far they're growing great. I've been really careful to not water them too much. The clear glass jar helps because I can see if the water is pooling at the bottom. I will certainly post pictures when they bloom!
Lexie, Little Boat- i need more colorful sweaters to phase into! perfect reason to buy more ;). winter accessories abandonment is too funny!
hila- i would love to trade! it's a deal!
