Some Great Summer Products!

Saturday, May 29, 2010

These are a couple cosmetic items that are must haves for Summer. If you  are short on time or are going to be outside but want a little something for you face these products are the best. 

Best Mascara EVER!  It does not smear or run! 

. Love this product for a little cheek pick me up!

The best lip stain ever. 
You put  on the clear gloss and the color comes up to match your own skin tones.

 I have never seen a  Makeup Planner like this and it is GENIUS!  You will never have to pack or unpack your makeup again and you can always see what you have.  Even if you don't use Trish products most eye shadows/blushes/powders can be popped out of there existing containers and placed into the magnetic "pages" that make the planner so easy to organize. Comes in some fun seasonal colors too.

Oh Little Little Silver Shoe...I Love You!

I just have to post this for all my fellow shoe lovers because duh...IT IS Sex in The City week. I  saw this ad the other day for this website called where you can get amazing deals on designer clothes/accessories and shoes! They had Christain Louboutin for like $250...I was very skeptical...but I checked it out and yes they do! Only thing is you have to get them fast bc they sell out quickly!

 Happy Shopping!

 PS Don't forget about our "Sunny Summer Days Contest!" Entries must be in by June 2nd!

Let's Organized, Organized!

As I write this title all I can hear is Oliva Newton John in my head. LOL

I have a thing for everything in its place. I had this mess of pictures and searched and searched to find the perfect organization system for them. I finally found these great double photo keepers by iris at  They are acid free and individually compartmentalized so you can organize your photo's inside to your liking.  I got out my label maker and got to work....

Here's what is started like...

And here's what it ended up like...
So much better! This weekend is having a sale and you can get up to 25% off your order.  Happy Organizing!

Sweet Treats!

Monday, May 24, 2010

We were invited over to a dinner/playdate at friend's house the other night.  They have two girls that are close to L and C's  ages so it is was a lot of fun.   As a little "thanks for having us to play" Lily and I made "treat jars" for their two little girls.

These are super easy to make and are adorable.  I found these  great labels download-able over at (my new favorite blog).  I tweaked the labels in photoshop to personalize them for each girl and then printed them out on sticker paper that I use for my shipping labels.

I used mason jars (which you can buy at your local grocer or  restaurant supply) filled them with candy.  Lollipops for the baby and Good n Plentys for the older little girl.  I tied  grosgrain ribbon around the jars and made "Love" labels that I hole punched and slipped through the ribbon.  Bingo!  All done and a great little love gift.  Lily loved helping me and giving it to her sweet friend.

Now I am working on slanted treat jars for her teachers for the end of the year.  Will post them as soon as I am done :)

"Hostess with the Mostess"

Sunday, May 23, 2010

I love giving and receiving hostess gifts. I always try to come up with something creative. I made this flower arrangement as one. It was so simple. I got a glass vase. Filled the bottom with seashells, sea glass and clear scatter crystals. I picked yellow roses (at the local grocery) because they were the perfect color yellow. I added a decorative butterfly, some crystallized twigs and a ribbon. When the flowers die all the hostess has to do is add new ones and she will always have a pre-made arrangement. Be creative with what you add in bottom.  You could do rocks, glitter, glass and more.
