Sign up for site alerts and you could save big $$!

Even Goblins Get Hungry

You might get hungry handing out all that candy!  I just love Papa Murphy’s and I think their Halloween pizza is so festive, pop it in the oven and you have a great meal and a fun evening.  The best part is the large pizza is only $8.00.  xoxo


Martha and Me

I was reading Martha Stewart Living the other day (I’m pretty sure my Mom sent me the subscription!) and there was an article about S’mores.  I do love a s’more!  In fact, one of my fondest memories of my recent trip to South Africa is roasting marshmallows and making s’mores after safari one night.

There’s so many ways to be creative with your s’mores these days.  Martha suggested using ginger snaps or chocolate wafers instead of graham crackers.  Sneak a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup in with the marshmallow.  There are so many fun options.  What about some bacon with the chocolate and marshmallow?  Try it!  xoxo


Sun Spots are Yucky

I used to love to sit in the sun. Baby oil with iodine mixed in along with an aluminum foil reflector was the norm.  Laying out from 10am-4pm was the schedule.  My goodness how times have changed!  Now I wear 70 strength sunscreen, long sleeve bathing suits and a hat.

I ran upon a DIY face mask that can help with those pesky sun spots that seem to appear out of nowhere.  It’s good and so easy!  xoxo

Mix 1 tablespoon of applesauce with 1 teaspoon of unfiltered apple cider vinegar.  Smooth on clean skin, make sure to avoid your eyes!  Leave on for 10 minutes and then rinse.

I just had to share my new shoes! You all know that I’m a real animal lover, so I just thought these Charlotte Olympia shoes were the best! Meow meow xoxo

Is that Chanel You’re Wearing?

You may have noticed this season that pearls on shoes, boots and anything else you can put them on is the style.  Chanel started the trend with their Spring collection and then Gucci followed.  But guess what?  You can get these fabulous boots with pearl and metal studs from Express that are a fraction of the cost of either Gucci or Chanel.  Yes, I said Express!  And they just happen to be on sale for $41.94.  xoxo
