My Lovelies, you have to see the 65 bags for spring:
I am so glad to see the bucket & reptile styles are continuing to go strong

Even before my days as a caterer I collected anything that revolved around cooking; I especially love baking pans & always want the newest & most interesting sets:
I think it is important to buy quality because I plan to pass my things on to the DIL & GD - along with the memories of the wonderful foods that were created to commemorate special days.

My son gave me a Keurig for Christmas and I realize I am late to the game - I try to keep clutter off my counters but this little gem is too fun!  I usually use it 2-3 x a day!
I am currently enjoying a tea called Winter Spice & it is delicious - and caffeine free!
Thank you son - you're my favorite! (He's an only child!)

I am excited to start purchasing the spring collections of some of my favorite cosmetics comps and as always, Chanel does not disappoint.  Chanel Joues Contraste Powder Blush - the Innocence color is very beautiful:

The color pictured is Sonate - this would certainly be a great year 'round color!

I have been trying different eye shadow brushes and honestly, the inexpensive e l f brushes are as good as anything - really, for $1 you just can't go wrong!
I don't know where some of these came from but these are a variety of my back ups.
The cotton ones are neat because the bottom is flat & the top is pointed = both are great helps in cleaning up make up around the eye area.

I purchased this lighted make up mirror and it was too good!  Let me explain;  I am a daily migraineur and one of my triggers is light.  This mirror is very bright and instantly triggered head pain. It had to go back but if you need one this is a good purchase; not too large & good light intensity.
Becoming organized is an ongoing exercise for me so I am always on the hunt for items that will help me in that effort. Apparently I now have a collection of 'helpers':
This is going to work with some of my other organizing options:
I love these decorated boxes & use them for a zillion things.
Pink aviator sunglasses are a must for me this year:

Someone sent me the following: " As women we do the errands of Angels."
Don't you just love it!!  As a matter of fact, I have had women in my life that came just when I so needed was miraculous.  This year, may I be one of those women.
