Top 10 romantic comedies!

I love watching movies, espescially on a cold rainy night, snuggle up under a blanket and press play! Living in Florida I expect the weather to be mild, even in the winter, except for this year, it has been COLD. Clearly not as cold as it gets in the north, but for Florida standards, 34 degree lows in cold to me. Therefore, I have a planned a little movie marathon this weekend and I thought I would share my top ten favorite movies.

1. Something's gotta give
2. The notebook
3. Pretty Woman
4. Far and away
5. French kiss
6. The holiday
7. Notting Hill
8. Pride and Prejudice
9. Bridget Jones Diary
10.Four weddings and a Funeral

If you haven't seen any of these you should try them!
If you think I have missed one let meknow what your favorites are!

Back to the blog!

I have been so busy the past 3 weeks, it was crazy around here. Grad school classes started up one week, we had family come in from San Diego to visit and it has been a whirlwind since. I was great to see family that we had missed for such a long time and we had a wonderful visit. I have included a picture that I took of my mother, uncle, and aunt, it had been years since the three of them have been together in one state, it makes you realize how much you miss being away from your family!

Essie spring collection 2010.......what's your favorite color giveaway?

I have been a fan of essie nail polish for 15 years now, it all started when I was 14, I began getting manicures and my very favorite color was ballett slippers. I then moved on to spghetti straps, adore a ball, pretty in pink, and now my all time favorite sugar daddy. When I saw the spring 2010 collection was available I quickly ran out to see the new colors, I was expecting the usual pretty pinks for nails and a couple bright pedicure colors, to my surprise, two of the new colors are soft purples. I have always been a fan of light pink manicured nails, saving the brighter colors for my toes, usually red or hot pink.........not lilac. I am trying to stay open minded, and I will polish one toe with purple and see how it looks, but I doubt it will stay too long. I have posted the new colors below along with some of my favorite essie colors. What do you think, would you wear purple polish? What's your favorite essie color?

I will be giving away 1 bottle of essie nail color in a pale pink at the end of the month, so you have a lot of time to enter and tell your friends! Here are the details:

Fab finds from Vera Bradley

I got an early spring emial from vera Bradley so I went through the site and picked out a few of my favorites. I just love the cute little sunglass cases and small make-up bags, they would make excellent valentines day gifts for mom or grandmother! The new tote bag designs are just adorable and perfect to punch up and spring outfit, turquoise is the hot color for the season and they offer a lot of new choices that have a hint of the popular color.
