The rumors that I started the dots trend may have been exaggerated -- by me. *wink* However, I remain a fan. Check out all the dotty goodness from Wolford... (Their website does not allow me to link directly to a search; so go here and search for "bonny dots".)

I don't normally cover cooking here -- I'm terrible at it. (Baking I love, but meal times are a chore!) But, as Chef Jeff Pirtle, the author himself, told me, "Everyone needs to cook dinner, right?" And maybe you're better at cooking -- or would like to be. In any case, You can have the dinneRevolution cookbook for free! This book will sell for $27, so hop on it for free!

Crackle nail polish made its first appearance from Cover Girl in 1999, quickly followed by Revlon's "grungy" line called Street Wear; but the crackle nail polish trend didn't really catch on until recently, when Katy Perry introduced her own line of crackle nail polish thru OPI, called Shatter. Now, many celebs are wearing the look and many companies are putting out their own versions of the crackled nail lacquer look. Other brands to look for include BarryM and China Glaze.
Over at Steph's Closet, there's a comparison of some of the crackle finish nail brands, should you be too distressed to go through the trial and error of selecting a brand yourself.
