We Love It: Top Ten Sex and the City Episodes, Part One

This photo is the closest that Season One will get to our Top 10 list.

We admit it - we're still completely obsessed with Sex and the City. It's amazing how this show still feels relevant and applicable to all sorts of dating and relationship situations, despite the fact that it doesn't even feature cell phones (remember how Carrie was alone at her birthday dinner because no one could get in touch with her? Unthinkable!). Even now, we often catch ourselves saying, "This is JUST like that SATC episode when..." and getting caught up in all-day marathons (while writing in the Sequin Notebook and polishing off a big bottle of Cavit, naturally). As crazy as it sounds, Sex and the City premiered FIFTEEN YEARS AGO on HBO on June 6, 1998 - to celebrate its anniversary, here is our top 10 countdown of our all-time favorite episodes.

What's in our... Shower!

Hey Gals! You may have heard us mention before, but we love us a good list here at TSN! We decided to launch a series called “What’s in our …” where we focus on a particular area of interest and provide you with a detailed list from each of us. After taking a look at our overflowing showers, we thought it would be perfect to kickoff this series by sharing our Top 10 must have shower products.

Mix(y) It Up: Memorial Day Edition

Anyone that knows me, knows that I pride myself on my Ipod playlists, or mixy’s, as I affectionately refer to them. I think music is a vital piece to any great party, event, or informal gathering. And if we’re being honest, I have dedicated mixy’s for even life’s most mundane tasks, such as washing dishes and doing laundry.

A small snapshot of some of the mixy’s on my phone:
Obviously there are many Gal themed mixy’s..
and yes, that does say foot mixy – clearly I needed a good playlist to get me through having foot surgery!

The Best iPhone Apps: Restaurant Deals

As a working gal in the big city without a reliable oven, dining out is a way of life. All of those meals have a way of quickly adding up, but you will never have to pay full price again once you load up your iPhone with these fantastic apps:

1) Savored

Savored allows you to save up to 30% off your total bill just by making a reservation through their website. Simply enter your party's information and narrow down which neighborhood and/or cuisine you prefer, and many great options will pop up for you to select from (it will also display what percentage will be taken off your total bill). This is a great option for dining out with a large group, especially if you're planning to have any cocktails because alcohol is also included in the discount. Best of all, you can book the reservation up to an hour in advance, so this is perfect for any impromptu gatherings.

Creative Display: Pretty Polishes

We Gals here at TSN are a bit polish obsessed and have some pretty impressive collections, if I do say so myself.  Every time I purchase a new nail polish, my favorite thing to do is to take out all of my little bottles, and line them all up in color order. 

I also like to do photo shoots with them!

It's Friday, Friday!

Sing it, Rebecca
Happy Friday to all you gals out there! This is our last weekend at home before we jet off on vacations next week (and of course we'll be gathering our best travel tips to share with you). Any guesses about our destinations?

Wishing you a weekend full of sunshine and glitter!

Party Planner: 13 Going on 30

To celebrate my recent initiation as a member of the 30 Club, I invited my friends to join me at a "13 Going on 30" themed soiree.

Love this movie, but it wasn't this kind of "13 Going on 30"

Instead of a Thriller-tastic 80s throwback with Mark Ruffalo, my 13 Going on 30 bash centered around the year of being thirteen years old (in my case, 1996). Once the theme was set, the next thing to follow was an official party logo...

Product Love: Simple Sugars Body Scrub

I’m a self-proclaimed product junkie, and pretty much up for trying anything once, especially if it’s received good reviews.  Today I wanted to share a newly discovered product that I absolutely adore – Simple Sugars Strawberry Body Scrub.  I happened upon this product when I was watching one of my guilty pleasure tv shows, Shark Tank.  

For those not familiar with the show, the premise is that up and coming business owners present their business idea/product to a panel of “Sharks”, who are basically self-made entrepreneurs, and try to appeal to them for financial backing, in return for some sort of stake in their company.

Hey Gals!

Welcome to The Sequin Notebook! We're excited to give you a glimpse inside the pages of this must-have item, which has been our little secret...until now.

We are B and M (also known as The Gals), best friends of over fifteen years (and counting!). B is a single girl living in the big city, and M is married and a new mom-to-be - between disastrous online dating stories and learning how to navigate the suburban jungle, we've got a little something for everyone.

The pages of our actual notebook are running low, so we've decided to bring it to the digital age so we never run out of room to capture our memories, lists, and favorite things (and of course, add some life to it with pictures!). Here are just a few of the things we love that you can expect to see in The Sequin Notebook:
