You guys! How have I not used this before?! My friend introduced the Ped Egg to me this week while on vacay. 2 words: HAPPY FEET.
Disclaimer: Yes, the crap you slough off is gross. But it stays contained in the "egg" so don't worry. No one will mistake it for parmesan cheese. I think that was my main hangup beforehand. I was pensive about WHERE THE FOOT SHAVINGS ACTUALLY WENT. Now you know. Go get yerself one.
And then THIS! Mmmm...pomegranate martini that is PRE-MADE and verrryyyy tasty. We may have gone through
I highly *hiccup* recommend.
Third (or is it thirdly?), there's this new website out there from Shared Book (the company that can magically turn your blog into a hardcover book - see the big Blog2Print link on my right sidebar?) called Inscribe-it.com which allows you to add a dedication and photo to a selection of 200 classics and best sellers for kids and adults.
Anyway, they are running a Daily Dedication Contest on Twitter. All you have to do to enter is first, obvs, follow them on Twitter. They are going to be listing a book title every day. You can reply to them with a dedication for that book - it can be funny, sarcastic, sentimental, whatever you want, and you can enter as many times as you want. Each week they will select one person to win any book from www.inscribe-it.com to personalize for free.
And speaking of books, at the beach I read Testimony by Anita Shreve (love her). This was a book that I couldn't put down. It's unique in the fact that each chapter is written from a different character's perspective and tone. To summarize, it's about a sex scandal that takes place at a boarding school in New England and the fallout from the subsequent media frenzy.
Soooo, what are you loving this summer?
