Etsy Feature: Angel Face Botanicals

I recently discovered this amazing bath and body shop on Etsy. I ordered a sampler pack to hand out as favors at a brunch and they were a hit. Angel Face Botanicals offers aromatherapy, bath items and organic facial care products. There is such a variety of products you won't know where to start. One of my favorites is the shower steamers. You put one in the corner of your shower and it releases essential oils into your shower steam. Another favorite is the Rock Star Detox Body Scrub which was listed as an Etsy Best. You can't go wrong when you order from Angel Face Botanicals. The products are wonderful and the customer service is excellent. If you want to pamper yourself or someone else, you must visit this shop.

Jenni's Noodle House

If you have never been to Jenni's Noodle House in Houston, you really should go, especially if you love noodles or Asian food. It's a great place for a quick bite. It's yummy yet inexpensive. I went there years ago when they first opened but had not been back since. They have a location on Shepherd and W. Alabama and one in the Galleria area. The noodle dishes are so good and they also have several vegatarian options. If you like spicey be careful though. They have a level system of 1 - 3. I LOVE spicey food. I put jalapenos on everything and always order my food spicey. We ordered to go and the man suggested I get the level 1 my first time. I decided on the level 2, medium right? Wrong!?!? I felt like that guy on the show Man vs Food. I was gulping water and milk after every bite. I don't even drink milk but my daughter was sitting next to me so I took hers because I always see them do that on TV. I thought I would surely die. It was so hot that I could barely enjoy it, so I suggest the Level 1 your first time. Don't try to be cool and go with the 2 or 3. I'm pretty sure 3 would put you in the hospital. Check our their website for the menu and other information.

A Bedroom Makeover

I want to redo my bedroom with this bedding...I love the mirrors too. Now I just have to convince my husband these are manly flowers. It's from Crate and Barrel. Love the colors! I think its time for new bedding, especially since our current bedding was chosen around the color of our pets and how much damage they may do to it.

Word of the Day

It's not a regular thing, but occasionally I post a word of the day when it is relevant. This one is a bit of an anatomy lesson. Today's word is...


The outer and thinner of the two bones of the human leg, extending from the knee to the ankle.


Let's use it in a sentence, shall we:
It really sucks when your husband breaks his fibula playing softball, and you now have to take care of him and a 2 year old.

Trend Watch: Jeggings

I hate to be the one to break it to you if you haven't heard, but the newest trend in leggings are jeggings. They are a cross between jeans and leggings. You get the look of tight skinny jeans with the comfort of leggings. Hmmmm. Sounds a little scary so far. The ones in the first pic are kind of cute though. I think I will just call them jean leggings though.
