{closed} color club wanderlust mini polish giveaway!

I came home to a very pleasant surprise today - my Birchbox order came! so exciting!

for those of you who indulge in Birchbox as I do, you know that they sent each subscriber a mini polish from their Wanderlust collection in June. super exciting. I LOVE getting nail polish in my Birchbox. I have received a few really incredible colors. I loved my color so much (and I was so jealous of everyone who got all the other colors) I had to order them. the only problem is...I already received one of the 4 colors in my Birchbox, so...


one lucky winner will receive this cute little "fiery coral" color called Reign in Spain from Color Club's Wanderlust Collection. this is my first giveaway ever, ever, ever. can you believe it??

all you have to do to be entered to win is:
  • leave a comment telling me your favorite polish color, nail product, or tool. remember to include your email so I can let you know that you've won!

for extra entries:
*make sure you leave a separate comment for each entry!*

you have until Friday July 26th to enter, and I will choose a winner at random! good luck!

the winner is Aimee! congrats, and thanks to everyone who entered!

I don't give a fig

about a year ago, I won a wonderful book from a blog called Veggie Kids. then, everything we owned went into storage for 8 months. then, I began unpacking, found this lovely book, and promptly whipped up one of its recipes.

the book is Ripe by Cheryl Sternman Rule. the recipe is Fig and Wheat Berry Salad with Blue Cheese. except I hadn't the slightest idea where to get wheat berries, so I toasted up some pine nuts and threw those in. it was to die for.

if you ever have a moment to take a peek at this book, do it. it's organized by color, and it's just too cool. here's the Vine version for your viewing pleasure:
