What I might be 'wearing' in the new year..........
As I channel surfed today, I saw the movie "Sex in the City" was on and I happened to stop when the indefatigable Samantha states, 'Yes, I love you but I love me more'.
Southern girls are reared (you raise corn, you rear children) to put everyone ahead of themselves - to put ourselves first in line is a mind-blowing concept - and I am willing to give it a try!
Love actually  -  that is what I may be wearing in the new year - and I think it will look great on me!

Organization is on my mind & I use a variety of make up brushes - so I found this paint brush holder & it is the perfect fit for my vanity:

I also want to organize some of my everyday make up & the items must coordinate with my decorating scheme, so I bought some of these boxes that will look pretty on my armoire:
Now if I can keep everything in its place, life will be good!

If you visit, please feel free to leave your site in the comments section, as I am happy to follow back - it's fun to discover new blogs.

My thought for the day:
Do not let your past rob your future. Each new day is a chance to make a new beginning. Count your blessings, live with gratitude and love with all your heart.


  1. That is a tall order after a life time of not putting yourself first! Good Luck and have some fun with it!

  2. Happy new year love! I hope the weather is not too brutal - I am preparing a post about the new Dior spring collection & that should get us in the mood for nice weather!
