One of my best recent purchases would have to be this VERY cool computer lap desk from Brookstone. (I know, I know. It doesn’t get any cooler than this.) I bought the orange one. Because everything I buy is orange. (Computer cover, phone cover, kindle cover, computer bag, ipad cover… I really need to change it up one day. I think it’s my signature color. Mary Kay had pink. Little Richard has purple. I have orange.)
I grew up using lapdesks. Why? Because from a very early age my agenda was full of crafty-crafts like coloring and drawing. This little device made me more efficient (and comfortable) then and now.
Indeed, the tops of my legs actually just thanked me as they are no longer on fire after 20 minutes of blogging from the couch.
Cost on brookstone: $39.95. (I bought it from Rue-la-la for $20.00)
Three things about cake.
#1. If you’re still eating warm cake, stop it. Stop it right now. Put your cake in the fridge then wait and eat it the next day. Cold cake is a gift from God. Warm cake is like warm milk. It’s gross.
#2. January 27th was chocolate cake day. I know, right? I had no idea either. I apologize for not having known this and then alerting you.
#2. I’ve never been inspired to make a cake like the one above. You know, with layers and stuff. I have only ever made a cake a.) out of a box and b.) in either a standard 9 x 13 pan, 8 x 8 pan or cupcake pan. I have never attempted a layered cake, a cake that requires food coloring or baking in more than one pan or a cake that is made from what they call, “scratch.” I just haven’t.
I haven’t gotten the drive or the desire.
Don’t get me wrong, I admire those cakes wholeheartedly. And I think the bakers of those cakes have talent, vision and patience.
Me, though? I’d rather just eat the cake.
Then blog about it.
I use bare minerals and bought their “deep cleansing foam” on a whim.
It smells like donuts. (Awesome.)
It dries out my face. (Not awesome.)
I shan’t be purchasing it agian.
I wrote a review on sephora (ofCourseIdid), care to read it? (click to make larger – or click here to see the product.)
