Balance Bar (R) Mini-Bars - Just Perfect for the trip across Campus!

I'm so excited. My mom sent me a care package. Well, actually, she packed it in my stuff before I left home. School hasn't started yet but I'm back on campus three weeks early for my new job. More about that in another post.

Any-hoo - these new 100 calorie Mini-Balance Bars are PERFECT for treating yourself without over-indulging.

The Balance Mini-Bars come in Cookie Dough (me love Cookie Dough) and Double Chocolate Brownie.

You'll want to add these to your list of must-have dorm supplies.

Oh - I'm working on my 2012 Back to College Supply List - so stay tuned.

But, you can get a head start with the Balance Mini-Bars.

Happy Monday!

What I'm Watching Now - "The Nail Files" on the TV Guide Network

So excited about all the new fall nail colors. And on that note, super excited about the return of the TV Guide Channel's "The Nail Files" reality series.

They were in San Francisco recently to promote the show, give free manicures and nail "swag."

Happy 100th Birthday, Julia Child

Today would have been Julia Child's 100th birthday. While most of my memories of her come from the movie, "Julie/Julia," I have seen enough Cosby Show reruns to remember this one in particular!

Fairytale Brownies - These Are Going to Cost Me Another 30 Minutes at the Gym!

OMG. My mom brought home these little treats from work. She said that one of her vendors sent them as a gift.

I am trying so hard to avoid sweets, but they keep finding me - everywhere I go!

These are like little bites of joy. My tummy is smiling. . .my thighs - not so much.

If you are compiling your list of care package items for your trip back to college, make sure to send this link to your parents. They'll deliver directly to your dorm. Which is good, but also bad.

"Craving" A New Color? This Might Be the MAC for You!

I needed a makeup fix - really bad. You know how it is when you want a new beauty product but your budget is - well, tight, but you just have to find a reason to get into the MAC makeup store?

Well, I had to look no further than my lips. I hadn't had a new lip color in a really long time.

I went into the store to find a "nude" shade. Well, the one that I wanted was out of stock. (Another post for another day because I am determined to find it).

But my mom was with me and she said "THIS color looks great on you."

I wasn't convinced at first because it wasn't the exact shade I had in mind.

And now, I can't stop looking in the mirror!

I think this new "CRAVING" color by MAC was just what I was "craving."

I'm Having A "Caramel Nut Blast"

One of my favorite things right now is the Balance Bar Caramel Nut Blast.

They had changed this up a bit and it didn't taste the same, but now, the ORIGINAL Recipe is back and tastes better than before.

I try to keep a stash in my tote for work (yep, getting my grind on this summer) and also in case I need to sneak a snack on the train ride home.

It's less than 2 bucks a bar and better for me than a bag of Skittles. Although, I still love my Skittles!!

Have a great weekend.
