    I haven’t been reading your blog long, but the MAC Venomous Villains: 101 Things You Didn’t Know article is what got me started. It was linked on another blog and I was shocked at how professional and original your blog is. But what keeps me coming back is the atmosphere. This may be a weird way to describe a blog, but its just welcoming and comfortable. It feels like dishing with your girlfriends in your jammies over Nutella pound cake and chai lattes (!) after a sleepover. (I have a vivid imagination, haha)

    Thanks so much Karen! Here is to you having a fabulous 2011 and all your dreams coming true!

    Oh, btw, here is a recipe for Nutella pound cake that is to die for.
