Super Fun Green Makeup Finds

I love makeup and beauty products of all kinds.  I always have, and I always will. I’m not a huge fan of the normal stuff though.  Nope. For a beauty product to lure me in, it has to have some kind of special something about it.  Whether that’s the color, texture, or effect, it all depends.

I am currently IN LOVE with some of the really fun makeup trends that are going on right now. Especially the vivid colors of things. These are some of my favorite green makeup finds.

Our Favorite Movie Quotes About Love

I am a sucker for a good quote. Maybe it’s all girls or women, that are like that, but I don’t think so.  When I see something with a quote I like, my first instinct is “I should make something with that.” It’s doubly bad with romantic quotes.  I’m like “That would be great for a wedding/engagement/date/whatever.”

Make this Easy Fringed No Sew Scarf for Him – or Her

With the weather turning colder, there’s one thing that you always need. Well besides a coat and a good pair of shoes. That item is a really great scarf. Now, I never really understood the point of a scarf for warmth until I was an adult. All of a sudden I realized that a scarf kept my neck warm and I could use it to cover my mouth and nose. It was like a serious wakeup call. Not to mention – some scarves are really cute.

Make an easy no sew wool scarf

One of the things that I really like is a wool scarf. It’s so elegant and refined. As a bonus, a plaid wool scarf looks really great with a car coat or any other dressier coats. One drawback is that these scarves tend to be really pricey. Luckily, they’re really easy to make, even for a non-DIYer.

Don’t Let LBL Get You Down!

Thanks to Poise for sponsoring today’s conversation.

One of the great things about the holidays is seeing your family and friends. Especially the ones you haven’t seen in for-ev-er. Everyone gets together, eats great food, and tells tons of stories. Some you’ve heard a hundred times, and some are new to you. Sometimes, you even hear a dirty story that you didn’t understand in a previous telling.


Everyone hoots and hollers, laughs and has a grand ol time. Until all of a sudden, you’re like “oh! Gotta go!” You jump up, make a beeline to the bathroom, and just hope no one’s in there.

Must Haves for Lazy Days with NBC

One of my favorite things to do is lazy days. They’re pretty self-explanatory, but you just kick back and basically do nothing all weekend. Or a weekday. Whenever works for you. One of the things I enjoy doing on lazy days is binge watching a whole season of a TV show.

Lazy Days with NBC TV Everywhere

Normally, I’d go find something on one of my subscription sites, but now there’s something else. Recently, NBC contacted me and wanted to know if I’d tried their NBC TV Everywhere feature.  I’m gonna be honest and say – I didn’t even know this existed! With NBC TV Everywhere, I can catch up on my favorite NBC shows right on my laptop. Heck yeah!
