My honey took his favorite girls out to dinner this weekend. In my attempt to upgrade myself and eat foods from other cultures, we ventured to Shin Chon Garden in Ellicott City. Reviews stated it was an awesome place to go, newly renovated, very authentic, super tasty. We had two options, grill or barbecue. We took the grill option, but we probably should have taken the bbq route. The only Korean meal I’ve ever had is fried chicken, and oh boy, it’s incredible.

This week is dedicated to one of my favorite brands, Crown Brush. I bought 5 brushes during a Hautelook sale a few weeks back, and every day is dedicated to a new brush. I love Crown Brush because it’s inexpensive, effective, and competes with even the most expensive brush lines. I always get a few when I go to The Makeup Show.
Oh Independent Fashion Bloggers website, how I love thee. While reading 5 Helpful Sites to Analyze Your Blog, they shared a link to mouseflow.com. This website actually lets you watch and analyze what people do while on your blog! Seriously…it’s a recording of people clicking links, reading articles, trying to steal your content, and all the other normal things that readers do! It was super creepy at first, and I kind of felt like I was spying! But seriously, you should take a gander. It was totally worth it.

Included in this week’s amazing links: Shopping to Aid Japan Relief, an outfit post for Charlie Sheen, exploring the new neon trend and behind the scenes of how Hermes scarves are made!

It all started while watching A Different World. It was the episode when EnVogue guest starred, and Charmane, Lena and Whitley wore African Print dress. This could be one of the worst images ever, but it gives you the idea!
Then, I find this image of Nicole Ari Parker. Umm, I need this dress, like last year. This shirtdress was created by brand Kiki, based in Ghana.
