The first week of February has already come and gone! It’s hard to believe that 2015 is well underway and before we know it, it will be springtime! Hopefully sooner than later… I’m ready for warmer weather!
Here are my favorite things from this week…
Did you know that one in three women will die of heart disease or stroke? Here’s something you may not know about me… I was born with a “special” heart. I had surgery on my 21st birthday to fix it, but I will always have heart issues, including a murmur. Today is Go Red for Women’s “Wear Red Day” and as a survivor, I am participating. I’m not wearing this, but I would be if I’d purchased it in time…

I love perfume… my mother has worn the same scent for as long as I can remember and I will always associate the fragrance with her. My problem… I haven’t been able to find something that I could smell all day on myself. That is, until I received my Sephora shipment and opened the sample of this…
This perfume is so light and airy and, yes, Dreamy! I immediately went to Amazon and purchased this full size bottle, which is beautiful itself. I wear it every day and love it so much! Click HERE to find Marc Jacobs’ Daisy Dream on Amazon.
This one from Mr. Kate…

I absolutely love the look of exposed brick. I’ve mentioned to The Hubs before adding brick behind the headboard in our master bedroom. Here’s what it looks like now…
I think putting thin bricks between the windows and behind the headboard would make the bed stand out even more. I found this easy tutorial on Pinterest the other day…
What do you think? Would that be too busy? Do you think it would make the room look smaller? I’m still debating and completely open to suggestions. Click HERE to see this on Pinterest.
I ventured out of my comfort zone a little this week with dinner. Until recently, I’ve never been a fan of Cajun food. But, I made this the other day and it was wonderful!

I absolutely love brick details like that. Aren’t sephora shipments the best? Thanks so much for linking up!

That Cajun dish looks so good. We don’t do a lot of Cajun, but we love spicy food so we really should do more! I love exposed brick, but never thought about adding it in myself, that would look so cool behind the headboard! I have a Go Red charm bracelet I got at a luncheon in college, since my grandmother has had heart issues, it’s been one of the charities I give to.
Please let me know if you try the pasta…we really like it and I would love to hear your opinion! Thank you so much for supporting the American Heart Association and Go Red for Women! It’s such an important issue that a lot of people don’t think about. How is your grandmother doing? I hope you’re wearing red today! Thanks so much for stopping by…have a great weekend!
