If it's supposed to happen, it will

Note to self:
If it's meant to happen, it will

Thanks for all the encouragement yesterday.
And the virtual hugs.
Y'all are good people.  Real good.
I promise, I'm not officially down, it's just that sometimes it feels really good to vent.  
I've been having a tough time blogging lately and not sharing what was really going on.  So again, thanks for letting me switch gears for a day.

One thing that is supposed to happen and most certainly will: these oreo brownies. In my mouth.

Rembrandt was kind enough to send me their tHERSday kit, a little goody bag with some fun drug store essentials.  Essie nail polish, pretty marimekko napkins and a cocktail are definitely happening tonight.  I'm not big on manicures but I'm thinking of trying it out tonight in either mademoiselle or geranium.
Do you go bold or pastel with your manicures?

I'll be honest, I'm not huge on drug store brands.  My lotions and potions are typically where I don't mind splurging.  But I was pleasantly surprised to find I have some new favorites.

I've been using the Aveeno Pure Renew Dry Shampoo for a few weeks now and I really like it.  I'm already out of the bottle I was sent to review.  It works well to stretch washing my hair another day or two and smells great.  My favorite way to use it though is while I'm styling my freshly washed hair. It gives an extra bit of grit like you have with next day hair that makes my hair stay in place and have more body.  Big fan of that.
I've also been keeping the Nuetrogena hand cream in my diaper bag and love that it's fragrance free.
I can't wait to try the Rembrandt Stain Dissolving Strips.  I'm a big red wine and coffee drinker so this is a must for me at least twice a year.  And might cost a little less than my trays from the dentist.  I'll let y'all know how they work!


  1. I almost used that same quote today. Great minds think alike. Love your personal stories always and how fab was the kit from Rembrandt?? I love all the nail polishes! Have a great weekend sweet girl!

  2. Your transition from yesterday's serious post to today's post cracked me up! Hope you have a great weekend!

  3. what a great kit! As far as nail colors...everything under the sun. I can never decide...have frequently been the annoying girl at the nail salon spending 20 minutes agonizing over a color for a $9 manicure. And then when the nail ladies come over to speed me up it's just way too much pressure. If getting mani/pedi, I usually change my mind on mani color at least once during the pedi.

    But all those colors look lovely :)!

  4. On another note..I made the chicken and Orzo dish and it was Scrumptious! Thanks for sharing!

  5. OMG - brownies & oreos - died and have gone to heaven. Must try.....

  6. Such a fun goodie bag! Glad to know about the Aveeno dry shampoo. I've been wondering which one was good. thanks, Ashley

  7. Umm those oreo brownies look amazing! I think I might have to make them this weekend too.

  8. Thank you for keeping it real, it's nice to know that everyone has "real" things they deal with from day to day-ya know, in between Ikat, Jack Rogers, Ginger Jars, etc. ha ha ha! Here's a little something to brighten up your day-definitely ordering these babies pronto!

  9. Yum....might have to make those brownies! You got a good mix of Essie colors!

  10. Glad to hear that today is a new day.

  11. I loved those nail color shades...

  12. Never tried the dry shamp but may give it a go.


Thanks for joining the conversation!
