Links Of The Week

{RIP Helen Gurley Brown, editor extraordinaire of Cosmopolitan magazine,1965-1997.}
It is already setting up to be a busy busy weekend for me as we are celebrating my daughter’s 2nd birthday and as much as I always try to make these parties simple, they always end up being a lot of work!  We are doing a Tinkerbell party theme (she already has wings she wears around the house) and having a few close friends and family over to help celebrate.  I know it sounds cliche, but I cannot believe how fast time flies when you’re raising children!!  If I had a lot of time on my hands, I’d try to recreate this Pixie Hollow, it’s so cute!!
Here are a few links to linger by that have caught my eye (that rhymed-ha!) from the past week.  And isn’t that picture up top of Mrs. Brown the coolest in her zebra-like print dress?? I love her confident stare
1.  Helen Gurley Brown had an AMAZING life story as abbreviated by the NY Times.

2.  Cute ways to display your beauty products in the ladies room.

3.  Fall football is in the air and this new site by two southern belles gets me excited for gamedays.
4.  Easy to see pictorial post on picking the right blush color for your skin tone.
5.  Tough girl studs for your hair.
7.  Hooray! Rachel from Friends finally got engaged!! 
8.  Every self respecting makeup lover needs this necklace.
My favorite quotes from Helen Gurley Brown (she had many) were these two… “Nearly every glamorous, wealthy, successful career woman you might envy now, started out as some kind of schlep” and “Good girls go to heaven, bad girls go everywhere.”
Have a fab weekend everyone!! Are you doing anything fun?
