Cheap Frills: Affordable Lingerie

No need to wait for Valentine’s Day, sweetheart. It's always a good time to pick up a sexy piece of lingerie or two even if you're the only one admiring it. (Shout-out to all my single ladies!)

Weekend Getaway: Laguna Beach

I was absolutely amazed at how realistic these life-size puppets look and sound, although it seemed all T Rex and Triceratops wanted to do was eat donuts. That's something you wouldn't have seen 65 million years ago!
