I have a confession to make:  I'm not a huge Halloween fan.  I'm much more of a Christmas person.   However, as with every holiday, I do eventually get caught up in it.

I wanted to share a couple of pictures of my sweet kids when they were little.  These are from 1993. My son was five and my daughter was two.  Ahh...such fond memories!

And here's my orange Halloween kitty!

Have a wonderful holiday!

Pink Saturday: Edition Pink Shoes

I love, love, love the color pink.  In fact I'm wearing a bright pink sweater today! 

As much as I love pink, I realized I don't have any pink shoes.  I used to buy them all the time for my daughter when she was little.  She had pink cowboy boots, pink hiking boots, and of course pink Mary Janes.  When it comes to myself, however, I've been a little negligent.

I went in search of some pink shoe images to share with you.  I'm not sure I will run out and buy any of these, but they are pretty.  Some of them are a little wild, too.

I'm linking up with Beverly at How Sweet the Sound for Pink Saturday.

Great Beauty Product Reviews

Hi!  I hope everyone had a great weekend.

I have been enjoying some YouTube videos by a fellow blogger by the name of Jessi, and I wanted to recommend them to whomever is interested in beauty product reviews.  I have found so many great products because of her.  She is not only savvy about makeup and skincare, but she's sweet as well!

Here is the link to her YouTube channel:

Watch a couple of her videos and I promise you won't be disappointed!  Just be prepared to expand your beauty budget a little bit.

Have a wonderful week!

Pink Saturday : Lip Gloss Edition

Hello!  I'm joining up with Beverly at How Sweet the Sound for Pink Saturday.

I want  to share a couple of recent purchases.

I LOVE make-up. In fact, I may have a slight addiction to it.  When I find a product that I really love (especially an economical one), I like to pass it along.

I am a huge fan of lip gloss.  I've never been able to wear lipstick very well, because it dries out my lips too much.  I always have two or three glosses with me, however, and I'm always on the lookout for sheer, non-sticky lip gloss!

Neutrogena's MoistureShine Lip Soothers are wonderful.  They are my absolute favorites!  They smell great, have an awesome line of colors, and are not sticky. They moisturize extremely well.  In fact, I can't think of one negative thing to mention, except perhaps the price.  They are usually about $8.99, so I buy them when they are 40-50% off.

The darker one is 'Glaze', and it's probably my favorite color.  The lighter one is called 'Gleam'.  Although 'Glaze' looks red, it's definitely more of a pink.  They are both sheer, and I get tons of compliments when I wear them.  AND...they are 40% off at Walgreen's through Saturday, Oct. 15th! 

I might do more make-up reviews; I'm still considering it.  I read several blogs whose writers do reviews, and I have found some of my favorite products that way.

Have a great weekend!

Are you ready for some adorable??

Hello and happy Tuesday.  I am finding myself in need of a pick-me-up, and I thought maybe some of my bloggy friends were, too.  So enjoy these pictures of my cats (and one dog) and I hope it helps lift some spirits. I know that they lift mine all the time!

Happy Pink Saturday!

I'm joining up with Beverly at How Sweet the Sound for Pink Saturday.  Go over and visit!!

I had a birthday recently, and I thought I'd share a couple of lovely pink items my family gave me.

Bath & Bodyworks has a line called "Paris Amour".  I've been in love with the packaging for some time.  I was pleasantly surprised to receive these

The perfume bottle is so much prettier in person.  I think it's the loveliest one I've ever seen!

A thoughtful friend who knows I love pink gave me these lovelies

(Please excuse my very "rustic" coffee table! It needs to be refinished.)

And last, but not least, my daughter gave me this cute pink card!  She knows me!

Have a glorious pink Saturday!
