Have you guys seen the new scents at Victoria’s Secret yet? I nearly leapt out of my skin when I saw Cupquake and Candy Baby. That’s what I’m talking about. I picked up these three body mists this weekend. I love Cupquake and Candy Baby, but they’re very, very light. Not sure if anyone but […]

They’re from Spread, a restaurant in San Diego that uses all locally grown, organic ingredients. I was so enamored with these extraordinary flavors that I had […]

Candles.

October 27, 2010

I can’t even be trusted at the grocery store anymore. A few weeks ago I was minding my own business, strictly adhering to the list, when what do I notice between the Cheerios & peanut butter?
