I typically use the summer to lean back and not post as much as I typically do throughout the year—you know, try to use the time to go out and relax as well as get a ton of business-related work done. Coming up I have my beauty event at Space NK this Saturday (woo hoo!) and then next week is my birthday and I'm heading to Miami with my homey Trina from The Baby Shopaholic. I envision a ton of grownup shenanigans going down and I'll have a recap so stay tuned…lol.
