Charity in Chocolate - Yes Please!

This Friday I am going to be attending The Heart of America’s Charity in Chocolate event for the first time, and I am so excited!

Charity in Chocolate was named one of Washington DC’s Top 15 event and proceeds directly benefit children living in poverty in our local D.C. community by providing books they otherwise would not have.

Anyone can actually attend this event. And tickets are still available:

The night will include a delicious chocolate fashion show featuring models dressed in chocolate and edible accessories AND will have over 50 award winning chefs tasting stations, a silent & live auctions and an open bar....fancy schmancy!

Chocolate + Good Cause + Open bar? = Count me in! what to wear????? :)

So the time has come ...WE'RE MOVING! And by moving we can literally throw a rock from our old house to our new house...and by literally I mean if I had the arm of that kid from "Rookie of the Year" (blast from the past ALERT)

Anywho. We are moved out and all 5 years of my sweat, tears, molding, paint, and spackle now belong to someone else....

BUT we now have a new home, which means new projects...which means new posts! Yay! Glad to be back ;)

Best Birchbox yet!

I am thrilled with the contents of this month's Birchbox. Happy Valentine's Day to me!

1st up: The beautyblender! This product is in every beauty blog, magazine, and article I read. I have really wanted to get one, but I was having a hard time parting with $25, with what appeared to be 2 sponges. However, I tested this baby out today and it really does an nice job with evenly applying foundation. Love it!
Next: Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant. I have heard of this brand but never tried anything by them. This is actually a powder that you mix with a bit of water to form a paste. It smells great and left my skin felling awesome.

Ok this next item is something I didn't even know existed, but really cool. Eye Rock Designer Liner. It's basically press-on eyeliner...but exotic eyeliner...if you are looking for a crazy cat eyes this is your answer. Didn't try this yet - waiting for a special occasion :)

Other goodies in my box this month included: Jouer Luminizing Moisture Tint, a heart shaped nail file, and some free music downloads.

Well done Birchbox! See ya in March!

Work hair?

Gotta little crazy with my hair this morning before heading to work...

Messy chignon with a braided headband (just hair and bobby pins)

I was inspired by some of these celebrity looks...



P.S. if your hair isn't long enough to braid to form a headband, you can always opt for one of these faux ones :)
