Binge For Love – What we’re streaming for Valentine’s Day

What we're streaming for Valentine's Day I don't know what kind of Netflix-er you are, but I am without a doubt a binge watcher. It's not my fault though - like a good book, when I get into a show it's impossible to stop. Even if my better judgement does kick in telling me that it's 2:00am and a best case scenario puts me at 4 hours of sleep before my … [Read more...]

Happy Valentines Day! Probably one of my least favorite "days" but it's hard not to give into the cuteness of all the heart shaped bento tools that I have in my stash.
