I love making Bento lunches for my girl. I don't usually get too "out there" with creativity, but yesterday was a good one!

*Homemade Red Pepper Hummus (Mathilda really enjoyed helping me make this in the food processor) with peanut eyes/nose, tomato mouth and lettuce hair.
*Yellow & orange bell pepper spears and cherry tomatoes for dipping
*Mini pita sandwich- roast beef
*Not pictured: Cheddar Goldfish, a clementine and bottled water

I love these stackable Hello Kitty bento boxes. I found them at Dollar Tree!

Hairdo for the ball

My hubby and I are attending his annual men's club debutante ball Saturday evening. It is a very formal ball, and we usually have a wonderful time. It begins very sedate with white gowns and Texas dips, and usually moves on to a rowdy drunken dance party with a fab, fun band.

I'm wearing a black gown (I know, real original). Hopefully I can post some pictures after the weekend.
I am struggling with deciding on a hairstyle since I cut my hair shorter than usual. I am thinking of something like this...

Angie Seaman Photography Giveaway

Sweet Angie of Angie Seaman Photography and AngelicaGraceDesigns is giving away an awesome instant camera!

It's a Fuji Instax camera, which is a new camera reminiscent of a Polaroid!

I'd LOVE to win this camera so I can share the rEtRo fun of an instant camera with my six year old daughter, Mathilda, just like I used my Polaroid when I was her age!

Fall/Winter Fragrance

There is a chill in the air, even here in Texas. And that means it's time to break out the cool weather fragrances. For me that means a woody oriental. Last fall my sweet husband bought me a bottle of Tom Ford Black Orchid. Despite the name, it's really not floral at all. It is deep and dark with mainly sandalwood and patchouli notes on my skin.

Alas, the bottle is almost empty, so I need a new fragrance. My plan is to go to Sephora and smell some new ones. I am interested in the new Juicy Couture called Couture Couture. I'd also like to try Viktor & Rolf's Flowerbomb.

What is your favorite cool weather fragrance?

Hard Candy @ Walmart

Recessionista over at Nouveau Cheap found the new Hard Candy line at her local Walmart. Hard Candy was previously a higher end line, widely known for their funky nail polish colors (back before every brand had outrageous color offerings).

From Recessionista's pictures, Hard Candy at WM looks FABULOUS! Check it out!
