Tarte Holiday Lipgloss Set

I love Tarte Cosmetics year round, but their holiday sets this year are fantastic! I especially love this Tarte gloss set. They have all these vitamins in them to make your lips softer and healthier! All the colors are totally wearable including the bright red! I wore it to my company holiday party and felt very festive! Not too mention the size-these glosses fit perfectly in your pocket without being too small like some glosses. And lastly, the clutch. It is a fabulous gold and perfect for a holiday party. It too escorted me to my recent holiday bash! Check out Tarte's website to see all the great offerings for this holiday season!

You're So Money!

Okay, I love this book. I have read many finance books, including others for twenty-somethings and this is the only one that is actually doable and makes sense. I highly recommend buying it if you are in your twenties and single. Farnoosh gives great tips on how to prioritize what you want to spend your money on. I don't want to give away her ideas for free after she spent time writing this book, so if you would like to see what she says go on Amazon and type in "You're So Money" and BUY!

Diet Coke

Okay, I don't know why it has taken me this long to post this as one of my favorite things, but I LOVE Diet Coke! I think I have an addiction. I don't know if you've met others like me, but there is definitely a subculture of people who will drink nothing but Diet Coke. And, I am talking only Diet Coca-Cola. I refuse to drink Coca-Cola regular, Pepsi, Diet Pepsi, or any generic brand. I once went to five different bars in Springfield, Illinois searching for one that served Diet Coke. Apparently in Springfield, IL the only place that serves Diet Coke is McDonald's. I was just at a venue in Chicago as well that didn't serve Diet Coke and I had serious issues all day. I couldn't get it off my mind. I just love it. Its a cheap favorite. It has no calories. And though I had problems getting any this last week, for the most part its easily accessible. Let's face facts, its my drug of choice.

First off, my apologies for not posting for months! I'm trying to get better at it. Or should I say, I'm going to try and be better at it.Okay, so I realized I did not yet talk about my ultimate favorite...the cupcake. I can't explain why I love a cupcake so much, but I do. It's probably partly the fact that its portable, cute, small, and comes in a variety of flavors. Now I jumped on the cupcake bandwagon long before cupcake boutiques popped up all over the city, and I have to give Joan's on Third credit for being my first cupcake stomping ground, but I have to say that I don't find all the new places too overated.
Some people are over the cupcake. I am not. I am always trying new places and going back to old favorites. Even those that are slightly overhyped still have a good treat here and there. For instance, yes, sometimes Sprinkles can be dry, but they do still make the best red velvet in town. Anyways, this is my generic ode to the cupcake. I promise more specific cupcake related entries will be on the way.Until then frosting wishes and cupcake dreams!
