Spotted: LAVANILLA laboratories @ Sephora

deodorant
spray
lip
i absolutely love LAVANILLA brand products. i discovered them over the weekend at sephora. the vanilla coconut scented deodorant and spray are right up my alley. i love the idea of a deodorant with a matching spray, and when i have $18 to spend on deodorant and $60 for perfume, these will be my first purchases. did i mention they are all natural?? lavanilla makes everything - deodorant, body butter, lip gloss + lip butters, body washes and sprays! check 'em out here.

My New Addition:

so i decided to take my own advice and grab that hanging egg chair off of craigslist. i went to the place actually thinking in my head that i wasn't going to want it, but the young kid selling it was really sweet and was just trying to get some money for his move to chicago, so i ended up getting a great deal on it. are u ready folks - $40! i spray painted the stand in white lacquer and the chair itself in glossy black. i will probably re-reem it sometime soon where needed, and eventually hang it from a ceiling beam - perhaps when i get a house? i also need to make new cushions. anyway, this is my project of the moment. might not stay in this corner or even this room, but for now this is where the egg has landed! (more after pics to come)
