{Extras | Decisions, Decisions}



Random Fact: My sister's who is 6 years older than me Birthday and my Birthday are 10 days apart. We for the most part have different taste in music, movies, techie items and different styles... which makes her a little hard to shop for. However, there is one thing that we do exactly the same... we buy ourselves a kind of expensive Birthday gift and tell people "it was a gift from my sister." I have to say that I have come to love this tradition(?).

My gift this year is going to be an e-reader... but with so many on the market the decision on which one to buy is tough. I have narrowed it down to two but they are ranking so close that I may have to "flip a coin" in the end.
What do you think? Kindle Fire or Nook Tablet?

{Extras | Movie Faves... Heist Movies}

I L.O.V.E. heist movies. I'm not really sure why I like them.  But I do know, if the movie has a good twist at the end & criminals "get away with it," the better I like the movie. Now I know that some of you won't like some of my choices... but these are my top 5 favorites.


1. Snatch


2. Heist


3. Inside Man


4. Ocean's Eleven / Twelve / Thirteen


5. The Italian Job

{First Birchbox}


So, Birchbox has been all over the blogs for a while now... and I have just gotten around to subscribing. I love the idea of these kind of subscriptions. It almost seems like you are getting presents mailed to you each month. 
And can I just say, I LOVE presents!

The following item descriptions comes directly from the Birchbox card included in this box.

 Ojon | damage reverse Restorative Conditioner Repair stressed strands with this aromatic hair treatment -- exotic ojon and monoi oils work together to smooth and hydrate.
Color Club | Nail Polish in Clambake Coral

Kiehl's | Abyssine Cream This anti-aging moisturizer uses microscopic Abyssine molecules to soften wrinkles and protect skin from free radical damage.
BVLGARI | Omnia Crystalline Eau de Toilette Spray  This fresh scent combines notes of lotus flowers, bamboo, and Nashi pear.


 I totally understand that some of the things you receive may not be to your liking... But I have to say that I am almost completely disappointed with my first box. The only bright spot in this very dull box was the BVLGARI spray. I love the smell of this however I probably would not purchase it due to the cost. 
The decision now: Give Birchbox one more month? Or quit while I'm ahead.
