Weekend Reads

Happy weekend! That's me above, from last weekend, with the real life ship from Pirates of the Caribbean in the background! Yes! The latest installment is being filmed here in Hawaii, and the ship is docked in Kaneohe Bay (it's not the Black Pearl, it's a new ship, the Queen Anne's Revenge). We took a boat out to get close to it, and it's pretty incredible (and HUGE!). No Johnny Depp or Penelope Cruz sightings, though (yet).

What are you up to this weekend? As you read this, I'm chilling out on Kauai with Erika from Makeup Bag, Amber from Beauty Blogging Junkie, and Julia from All About the Pretty. Beauty girl weekend! John's about to fling himself into the ocean with all this talk of lipgloss and shampoo.

Here are some clickworthy links from around the web to check out as you start your Saturday:
