Bitten with the Urge the Shop!

Okay, so SJP's Bitten line might not be new.

But after seeing the cool dress on PR4 that they're going to carry, I'm more motivated than ever to check out Steve & Barry's.

Recover with mi SPA

Needing to recover from travel? Turkey? Family? Shopping? All of the above? Well treat yourself with mi SPA. You totally deserve it.
They have lovely soaps

Treats for your face

Bath and body greatness

And if for some reason, none of that works.
Dress yourself into a Zen-like state of mind.

Or just focus on what you love.

I hope your holiday was happy and your recovery is quick.

Wrap it Up!

I'm not one for traditional holiday wrapping paper,
so I'm loving the collection from Pop Ink.

The Daring Book for Girls

A while ago I reviewed The Dangerous Book for Boys for Parent Bloggers Network and found it to be a good reminder that, when it comes to raising a son, I have a lot to learn and a ton of experiences ahead of me. The Daring Book for Girls reminded me that I have a lot I still need to experience for myself.

The book by Andrea Buchanan and Miriam Peskowitz, covers pretty much every topic I could ever think of possibly needing or wanting to know more about. How's that for comprehensive? They even have a cool little video to give you a preview. But this gist is, each little chapter (there are about 107 of them) covers info and overviews on a variety of important topics like what you should pack for Africa, what you should carry in your toolbox, and what you should know about Joan of Arc. Also, there are many how-tos included like how to whistle with two fingers, read palms, play hearts, build a campfire, be a spy, invest in bonds. Seriously. Why did I waste time going to school? Reading through this book, I felt like I somehow missed a lot of good information in the late 70s, early 80s.

So that's why I'm thinking this book isn't just for little girls. Although, my nieces will all find a copy of this wrapped under the tree in a few weeks. I'm thinking, I'm giving this to my friends for birthday presents. Because you're never too old learn how to make your own paper (and quill pen). More importantly, you're never too old to be a daring girl!

Feeling daring? Leave a comment to enter a giveaway...we'll give one copy of The Daring Book for Girls away to one lucky winner, who will be chosen Midnight on Friday. Good luck!

Hear from the authors themselves what they were thinking when they wrote their chapters on boys and making cootie catchers.
