Hello Friends and Happy Friday Eve!

For this post I asked a co-worker to take the pictures in order to give my sons a break.  Sometimes they complain even though I provide them with food, shelter, water and lots of love! 

As you know I work in West Chester, PA, and similar to the Marlton office it is surrounded by greenery which makes for a better background than my backyard.

Hello Friends and Happy Monday!

There definitely should be an extra day between Saturday and Sunday because trying to squeeze in chores and relaxation into two can be exhausting!  I trust you all had an enjoyable weekend and hopefully are half way through a stress free Monday.

Today’s outfit is a simple two piece skirt and sleeveless tank that I must have bought about 10 years ago and thanks to the elastic waistband, I will probably have it another 10 years!

Hello Friends, I hope you had an enjoyable weekend!

As an Avon Independent Sales Rep I probably have more cosmetics than I need but I like trying new products so that I can spread the word to my customers or answer any questions they may have. I don’t particualarly like to spend a lot of money on makeup and usually stick to an under $5.00 price point but I was curious about the new Mega Effects Mascara.

The $10 cost made me a bit apprehensive as well as the fact that it looked a little more complicated to apply and I don’t have a lot of time in the morning, but I bit the bullet and ordered it. The first morning I tried it I ended up poking myself in the eye and getting smudges on my lower lashes, I was trying to use it like a traditional brush.

The WonderBrush handle is like a mini paint brush that is adjustable, and is shaped to fit the natural curve of your lashes.

I am going to be honest and say that it took two mornings for me to become comfortable in using it but now it’s just as quick to apply as any other mascara. It provides great volume, there’s no clumping, and it’s easy to remove at night.

This was definitely worth the price.

Hello Friends and Happy Friday Eve!

For me Thursday is the best day of the week, we’ve made it through Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and start to look forward to the weekend. Thursday is a heads-down day at work, tying up loose ends, finishing up the weekly to-do list in anticipation of an easy breezy Friday.

Thursday is also a day of reflection some even define it as Thankful Thursday. As we rush through the week from one event to another, it’s nice to take a few minutes to think about and then speak aloud for which we are grateful. Speaking positivity into the atmosphere is a good way to keep life’s trials and tribulations in check.

“Count your blessing so that you can lose count of your problems”

Hello Friends and Happy Sizzling Saturday!

I don’t know about where you are but it is hot as Hades in Delaware, the heat index is above 100~, it was actually too hot to lounge poolside!  I could only stand it a few minutes this morning before I had to head inside for the cool comfort of the air conditioning.

I decided to run to Goodwill for their “I Love Thrifting” sale today.  Not wanting to spend a lot I only picked up two pair of shorts and a brown and white striped skirt….guess how much I paid?  As a Goodwill VIP, I was entitled to 20% off so these three items cost me a whopping $9.00!!! #winning

Are you a Goodwill VIP?  If not, it’s free to sign up and you’ll receive advance notification of specials, online coupons as well as instant savings on VIP Days.  Needless to say, the lady in front of me wasn’t too happy when she heard that as a VIP member I was getting 20% off my entire purchase!
