Being A Prep For A Week: 1/31/16 -- 2/6/16

It's already the sixth day of February...anyone else completely taken aback?
My school course load was very heavy this week (more so than usual) because we're preparing to take a new version of the ACT.  This coming week is sure to be even more hectic, so wish me luck!  However, my family and I are embarking on a little excursion on Valentine's Day weekend, so sunnier skies are ahead (literally).
Prep For A Day

Now, on to some of my favorite links from the past week: 
One of my favorite bloggers has relaunched her website, The Yellow Spectacles (doesn't it look wonderful?)
Another one of my favorite bloggers is in St. Lucia--her travel diary is making me a little envious
The origin story of emojis
Seventy bathroom designs--from beautiful to outlandish and everything in-between
If you know anything about me, you know that I love anything from the fifties, especially the actors and actresses

How was your week?
