Can you identify all of the candy bars?  I can spot a Almond Joy, Rolo, Butterfinger and *maybe* a Milky Way.  How about you?  It’s harder then it seems!  Wishing everyone a happy and safe Halloween!!

PS – did you all catch the Today Show’s Royal Wedding Halloween?  So funny!

Summer is here – bring on the fun nail polish!  I am currently loving this tutorial found over at Cupcakes and Cashmere.  All you need is some fun nail polish (think turquoise, orange, hot pink, etc…) and glitter and you are all set!

What’s Up, Blog

Ok so this blog post is about blogging.  Crazy I know!  But hear me out.  Over the weekend I saw this segment and article on CBS news about the rise of blogs and breaking out into the competitive blogosphere.  While there are literally millions of blogs currently out there on the ‘net (including this one!) some people have really found their niche and have been able to turn their blogging into a full time business.  I for one read numerous blogs each day and am a self-proclaimed blog-addict.  One of my current favorite blogs is the wedding inspiration and style blog, Style Me Pretty.  SMP was profiled for the CBS story and was started by it’s founder, Abby Larson as an idea for her to work without having to leave her home.  It started out small (like all blogs do) and has today turned into a business that employs 13 people full time.  Talk about inspiring!  You can watch the full video segment here.

So what are your favorite blogs to follow?  Do you think you could turn a blog into a full-time career?

Manic Monday

June 13th, 2011 by alex | No Comments | Filed in Daily Musings

… just another!  Today is extra manic because our AC has been on the fritz here at RIU HQ.  We are working to get it fixed – but let’s just say no air conditioning in florida in the summer = no bueno.  No bueno at all!

Catch you all on Tuesday, hopefully in a cooler (literally!) state of mind!
