Holy crap. This week, you guys. Although it feels weird to be looking for silly, shallow things while I’m worrying about my brother in Boston, it’s actually a good thing to focus on some positive things that make you happy. See what’s distracting me this week:
Favorite Video: Real-Life Scribblenauts
Satire put out another video, this one focused on what you could do (or not do) with real-life Scribblenauts powers. This kid was the cutest and so much fun to work with!
Favorite Treat: Mountain Dew Cupcakes
I’m making a set of my “famous” Mountain Dew Cupcakes today, and I’m hoping to improve on it a bit, namely making the frosting taste even more like Mountain Dew. I’ll update you all with the results once my sugar coma has worn off!
Favorite Beauty Product: Beauty Protector
I got this detangler in a Birchbox a while back, and I fell in love. It protected my hair from heat treating, it made my hair softer, more manageable, and easier to brush through, AND it smelled amazing. It’s a Birchbox exclusive, and is one of their top products (for good reason). I recently ran out and am counting down the days until I get a full-sized refill. You can get it for $21.95 at Birchbox.com.
Favorite Time Waster: Polyvore
I re-discovered Polyvore this week for a project for one of my clients, and my mom coincidentally discovered it for the first time. It brings me back to my high school days of making collages out of magazines. Sometimes it’s fun to just escape the world and put together fun outfits!
Favorite TV Series: Arrested Development
I mean, this is a no-brainer, and by far not exclusive to this week. I’ve been re-watching the show to prep for a series of posts I have lined up for the new season, and I cannot WAIT to share them with you all. In the meantime, I’m gonna continue watching all the episodes for the umpteenth time and still find new things in them. The show’s available on Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, and a variety of other places, or you can suck it up and just get the DVD. You know you want it.
Please let me know what’s making you happy this week in the comments!
