Recently, I overtweezed. You know, going after that one stubborn stray and getting 4-5 good ones in the process. Being the resourceful chick I am, I purchased a Maybelline Easy Define-A-Brow Eyebrow pencil. It was pretty easy to use since I could see EXACTLY where I needed to fill in....I also blended it and matched the other brow....and went on my merry way.
That night, at a rare dinner out. My cute hubby goes "your eyebrows look amazing...what did you do? it looks sexy!" Recovering from the momentary shock, I go - "Hmmm, I haven't done anything different? Maybe a different eye shadow?" and mentally right then and there decided that my mistake will become a permanent fixture in my toolbox.
It just goes to show that maybe I SHOULD take a re look and see what else I can do to enhance some random body part. I keep seeing Valerie Bertinelli on TV touting that THIS could be my season to lose 40 pounds. Well, maybe not. But, It is definitely my season to redecorate...my body that is!
Shag yourself to Walgreens!

This is where the chocolate comes in. I recently discovered that you can actually receive the blissful stuff via the mail....for free. Yep. Just go to www.realchocolate.com on Fridays. 9 a.m. EST and sign yourself up. Pick your favorite and know that it will be shipping to your box. You can use up to 4 emails per household so recruit your husband and any children you wish to share said chocolate with - Me? I am saving this one all for myself.

I am so happy to have discovered this site. www.baresite.com
This site allows you to type in any web address and it brings it up without all the annoying boxes, ads and clutter that get me into such a tizzy. It only has one drawback and that is the links that are clickable will also only bring up the bare minimum. But, if it is reading you want this is the site for you!
I love it when I find such simple things to make life easier, don't you?
Happy Blog Reading!

Being a Sunday, you may not can find your own, so grab your paint pens, head to Target and doodle your own. But, for the thrill of expectation, order a fun one today.
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this shop on Etsy. ESPECIALLY for the Palmetto Trees I am so fond of!
Of course, the shop name is called Wine Whimsy and of course, she is from South Carolina.
I am so proud of my state for it's whimsical icon. You can adopt it, too - it seems to be a popular thing to do!
I have used this site for years. Eye4Gifts.com Her prices are great and she has every theme imaginable. Not to mention a special featured glass each month. I love these because they are quick shipping!

This is the cutest platter I have ever seen - just perfect for deviled eggs...and before you think "Oh, I can't have those" you should try my trick. I don't put the yolk filling in them. I use my favorite flavor of Hummus......Takes all the calories out and leaves only a fun flavor...You can also dress them up by an olive slice on top or curls of cucumber......Would that not be just the best thing to take to a Pot Luck? Lots of Oohs and Ahs to accompany, for sure! There are so many different ways to fill the middle, you can dream up your favorite, too!
For 36.00, order a little Southerness sent your way from Savannah, ya'll!
Oh, and it appears to me that is is just calling out for a vinyl decal monogram to grace it's middle!

As daughters, don't just sit there. DO SOMETHING. The grocery store flower department can be your best friend. At the very least, give a card. For me, my mom and all those I love who are moms, I am going to follow the stand by rule. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. It works.
Happy Mothers Day weekend. Spend it wisely, You will be glad you did!

Cross-Stitching. Thank you, Mom! I learned at an early age - completed several projects and now I wonder why in the world I stopped? It was so addictive and I still have some of my projects around the house. Glad to see someone is still at it - I love this photo album and it would make a sweet gift! Visit her Etsy shop ForKeepsSake for more themes......wonder if she takes custom orders?
I like the sweet simplicity of this Memo Board but this cute shop has several to choose from - AND it's personalized! Visit Texas Susannie's Shop on Etsy!
I also love the simplicity of this board as well!
This site has Oodles and Oodles of Frames to choose from. I have learned from experience that frames inetended for Little Girls never go out of style when personalized for a big girl. And, if the girl goes Greek, it's that much better! Find your choice of frame HERE!
