1. MAC Dazzleglass in Baby Sparks.  I never let myself run out of this.  It gives my lips the best shine!

2. My Marc by Marc Jacobs Sunglasses.  My current favorites.  I love the retro tortoise color, and the funky shape.

3. Anti-Bacterial Pocket-Bac.  I use this like crazy!

4. Goody Blonde Bobby Pins.  I probably have about 50 of these things scattered in my purse.  But, I always need them to pin my hair back on a bad hair day (which is frequently).

5. Apple Mojito Tasty Lip Color.  It smells sooooo yummy!!

6. My Camera.  I never go anywhere without it!!!

7. A pen.  Somehow I always need one.

8. Goody Rubber Bands.  Always keep extras for the gym.

9. Maybelline Coral Crush Lipstick.  My new favorite shade for spring!

10. A little notebook.  You never know when you might need to jot something down!

11. Stamps.  I LOVE mailing my friends things so I always have plenty of these on-hand!

12. My phone, the Samsung Fascinate.  No, it isn’t the iPhone.  And somehow I’m still surviving.

13.  Maybelline Lipstick in Are You Red-dy.  For when I’m feeling fiesty 🙂


The Royal Wedding.

April 28, 2011 § Leave a comment

So, just curious.  Am I the only person who really doesn’t give two hoots about the royal wedding?  I mean, ok, I’m sure Kate’s dress will be amazing.  And yes, there will be stiff competition between all the old ladies for who wears the biggest and best head adornment.  I wish them a life full of happiness and love but I cannot WAIT for it to be over so I don’t have to hear about it anymore!!

Thursday Inspiration.

I sometimes, probably like most people, catch myself dwelling on the past.  Why didn’t I do this, why did this or that happen, maybe I should have done this instead of that, etc.  I came across this quote today and loved it.  Great reminder to accept the past for what it was and move on!  Love it.


You can sit there forever, lamenting about how bad you’ve been, feeling guilty until you die, and not one tiny slice of that guilt will do anything to change a single thing in the past.

Easter Treats

April 22, 2011 § Leave a comment

I love Easter.  I have fond memories of frilly dresses and egg hunts from when I was little.  In addition to preparing Easter baskets for my two favorite munchkins , I decided to make some treats.  I saw these online somewhere and loved the idea.  They were super easy and only required a few ingredients.  My kind of baking.  Enjoy!!!

Easter Cupcakes:

1 package Spring Funfetti Cake Mix

1 container of vanilla frosting (I just used the Funfetti kind)

Green Sprinkles

Egg shaped M&Ms

1/2 package of Coconut (for about 12 cupcakes)

Yellow food coloring

Mini M&Ms

Red gumdrops or jelly beans for the beaks

Prepare cake mix according to directions on box.  Bake cupcakes and let cool.  The mix makes 24 cupcakes so I did half Easter grass and half chick cupcakes.

Easter grass cupcakes:

Ice half the cupcakes and cover with green sprinkles before the icing dries.  Place eggs on top.

Chick cupcakes:

Cut up red gumdrops or jelly beans for the beaks.  Put coconut in a bowl and add a few drops of food coloring.  Mix  until all coconut is covered.  Ice cupcakes and roll in coconut.  Place eyes and beaks on before the icing dries.
