and so it begins…

The Labor Day weekend shopping!

Last night, we ordered a rug for the dining room, and the pet feeder station we’ve been debating for months.

Today we’re going to look at beds. It’s time to retire D’s bachelor bed and get something of our own. Our marriage bed, I suppose. I’m so very excited about this! ❤️💙❤️💙

Other shopping plans include: clothes, plants, and more household items.

I’ve decided to put off painting the guest bath until it’s colder. Why waste a lovely weekend inside painting walls?

Product Praise

I wanted to share a few products I’ve discovered recently which I feel are tops.

  1. Rodan + Fields Lash Boost. It’s expensive, but it works. My lashes are looking long and luscious. Much better than extensions. If you’re on the fence: dooooo it. It’s like $120 per tube, but a tube lasts like four months so that’s actually way cheaper than lash extensions. 
  2. Posh Cackle Spackle. I love this face mask. It has spearmint oil, which smells amazing, and has a nice tingly feeling. I can feel it pulling toxins out of my pores and afterward my skin feels amazing. 
  3. LipSense. I just finally tried this today, but I’m already hooked. This lip color is extremely long lasting. I put mine on at 8 am. It’s 9:17 pm now and it’s still on, though very slightly diminished. I reapplied the gloss throughout the day as needed. I need this in several more colors. I’m ready to throw out my old lip products. It’s that good. I ate a bagel and the color didn’t transfer even a little bit!!

If you want to try any of these products, let me know and I’ll hook you up with my consultants. 


help me decide!


This is the stuff currently in my Modcloth cart just waiting on me to purchase. It’s all pretty much a go, except I can’t decide about the black and white polka dot dresses. Do I buy both or are they too similar? If I only buy one, which one should it be? The bottom one is a looser fit, which I’m a bit conflicted about typically, but it would look cute with a pink or red belt. HELP!!
