I come across countless things on the internet that I want to share - whether it be a DIY arts & crafts project, a new dinner recipe (more than likely a dessert, though!), a blog (or post) that inspires me, celebrity gossip, a unique etsy find, and the list goes on and on...I thought I'd highlight things I find throughout the week in one post that will happen every Friday.
Best of the Week
February 14-18, 2011
Brownie Covered Oreos - Yes, please! I saw this on Joy's blog but the recipe comes from Lelan over at Hello, Good Gravy!...doesn't it look to-die-for?! It's the simplest to do - dunk oreos in brownie batter (from a box mix) and bake in cupcake tins. I made these Wednesday night and they were so delicious! And dangerous! I had to take the leftovers to work :)
Lyndsey, over at Yellow Brick Blog posted about Sally Hansen Salon Effects Real Nail Polish Strips (and so did penny lane recently). You can see a tutorial on Amber's Notebook (link here). I am a disaster when it comes to doing my own nails, but I'm eager to give this new method a try this weekend. More detailed instructions and tips can be found here.
I've become slightly enamored with Kate Walsh. I recently started watching Private Practice again, and I just love her! She has a new fragrance called Boyfriend, and it sounds very interesting. I usually don't buy into "celebrity fragrances" but this one has some great reviews already. Kate even did a phone interview with fellow blogger, A Blonde Ambition (read here)!

I recently decided to turn my blog into a book (well, at least my posts from 2010)! I used the services of Blurb, and it was a relatively easy experience. I was able to edit, format, and make my book exactly how I wanted it. The cost to have it printed was very reasonable as well. I'm excited to have a book featuring my blog posts and I know it's something I will cherish forever.
PS - I used the code "NEWBLURB" for 20% off my order!
