Because I was out of town for a bit, and of course, thanks to the blizzard that wasn't really a blizzard, this was a short, packed-to-the-brim week for me. We are "closing" the latest issue at work (and it's a big one for beauty!), which for all of you non-magazine people out there, means that it's the busy, often frantic time when you put the final edits on your stories before they go to the printer and are out of your hands. I'm lucky to work somewhere where closes aren't bad at all (some magazine staffs have to stay until the wee hours of the morning for several nights in a row every close), but it's still nice when you can put it behind you. Phew!

This weekend, I'm embarking on a very exciting home project (more on that very soon!), and hopefully--though I say this practically every week and it rarely happens--squeezing in a little relaxing. But first, here's a few fun links to check out!

• I am so into this dress. It looks like the perfect combination of comfy and cute, and the price is great. (Under $120!)
