The Rap Sheet (The Week's Best in Looks, Books, Nooks, and More)

Here's what caught our eye this week at the Nest!! Have a great weekend!! A/J

I love pins. And fairy tales. Ergo, I love this pin.
If you haven't signed up for the Grimm Giveaway yet, why not do it now?? The Grimm Project starts Monday.
This look from Stylish Ashley =s perfect Saturday evening shopping look (with comfier shoes;)).  
Last Saturday, I took my students on a tour of the Cathedral of Learning at the University of Pittsburgh. I was again struck by the dark beauty that is the German Room, which contains these amazing stained-glass windows depicting Grimm's fairy tales (you can read more about them here). If you're a fan of the fairy tale, you must visit them. They are stunning. I sooooo wish I could teach in that room. Sigh.

After our visit to the Cathedral of Learning, we got takeout from this place called Conflict Kitchen (located in Schenley Plaza), which features a rotating menu of foods from different countries that are in conflict with the United States. The Kitchen is currently featuring Afghan food, which was absolutely delicious. I had the Lamb Tikka Kebab and Sharbat-E Rayhan (a lemon-rosewater-basil seed drink that tasted a lot like Lavender Lemonade). I give the place five stars! Try it out if you live around Pittsburgh.
I just got my hair cut and colored like this. I absolutely love it!! Thank God for Pinterest;).

Meanwhile, my hairdresser had these Tom's Desert Wedges on the other day when I got my hair done, and she informed me that they are super-comfortable (I trust a girl who's on her feet about 10 hours a day). They seem like the perfect shoes for Spring:)).
I'm in lip love with the Rimmel London Kate Moss Lipstick collection. The colors are unique... and they last! A very affordable way to update your Spring makeup look (learn more about them over at Some Sweet Little Dreams).
