  1. Zovesta has reached 100 followers and is celebrating with a great giveaway! Check out her 100 Followers Giveaway Open Internationally. She will be picking 2 winners and they get to pick their prize! The mystery boxes sound amazing! I love that idea!
  2. These Saucy Asian Meatballs are delicious and a regular in my household. I cut the recipe in half and use 1 lb of ground chicken breast in place of the beef/pork. I serve it with some white rice for a super quick and easy meal. It totally satisfies any takeout cravings and is so much healthier.
  3. Have you guys heard of Ellen’s app Heads Up? My husband downloaded it over the weekend and we’ve been playing it a lot. It’s so much fun! This would be a great game to play during cookouts or dinner parties. It’s also kid friendly from what I’ve seen so far. And there’s even a Friends pack for you fellow Friends lovers out there. I had way too much fun doing my famous Janice impression. It drives my husband mad! Hahaha!
  4. Paula posted another great how to article. Check out 7 Tips For Better Instagram Photos.
  5. By now y’all should know that I’m a hardcore foodie. I love me a good looking recipe. And Shireen provides us all with just that sharing her Aglio Olio Ravioli With Prawns recipe. It looks so fresh and comforting. I make a similar dish with slow roasted tomatoes in place of the prawns. So I can just tell this is as delicious as it looks. Yum!

  1. These beauty memes from POPSUGAR Beauty are hilarious! Especially 16 because you better believe I’m THAT awkward in person. *shrug*
  2. Janine posted a great MAC Giveaway. She is giving away THREE MAC lipsticks to one lucky winner. The giveaway runs until the end of August. How cool is that? You should stop by and say hello. She’s extremely nice and her posts are always fun and informative. I’m warning you though, you will leave with some serious hair envy.
  3. Normally I look past any recipe that calls for boxed or bottled anything, but this Red Robin Whiskey River BBQ Chicken Wrap looks damn good! I think it’s the fried onions. Bad, Lisa! I’m totally going to make this, but I’ll make my own BBQ sauce because I just can’t do bottled BBQ. This totally looks like a quick, yummy meal for one of those nights where you just don’t feel like cooking.
  4. This Vanilla Chai Breakfast Shake looks refreshing and delicious! Then again everything Chocolate Covered Katie posts looks refreshing and delicious.
  5. The lovely Becca reminded me why I love MAC so much with her MAC Veluxe Pearlfusion Eyeshadow Claretluxe post. Her product photos are always beautiful and her selfies are even more beautiful. I’m pretty sure I need that trio in my life. In fact I might just scoop it up while I’m away on vacation.

  1. If it’s one thing I love it’s a good sandwich! And one of my favorites is the classic tomato sandwich. Leave it to Smitten Kitchen to create an upgraded and tastier version of that. I definitely need to whip up her Tomato and Fried Provolone Sandwich. It’s so colorful too!
  2. Want to know how to reapply sunscreen ON TOP of your makeup? Well, you’re going to want to check out Lulle’s review on Coola Makeup Setting Spray SPF30 and where you can purchase it for yourself. That product photo is just too cool!
  3. I very recently found Paula’s blog and I’m so glad that I did! Her blog is great! A nice mixture of beauty and lifestyle posts that are not only informative, but inspiring as well. One of my favorites is her 113 Ideas For a Blog Post. I highly suggest checking it out especially if you’re feeling drained this Summer and fresh out of ideas. It happens to the best of us!
  4. The beautiful Zovesta wrote a post titled A Word on Glambot. She tells you all about this website where you can buy used makeup for cheap! She even shares some of her purchases!
  5. Amanda shares with us her F.O.T.D. Turquoise Wing Turotial. Her FOTD posts are always beautifully done and this turquoise wing is simple yet stunning! It looks like a fun Summer look!
