Don’t let the 487 pages frighten you away! When you reach the end you will be wishing for 400 more pages!
Laine Moriarty is one of my favorite authors! She has such a talent for writing that you feel as if you are part of the storyline. I became so engrossed with this book that I couldn’t put it down. I am usually in bed and asleep no later than 11, nope not with this book! I stayed up until well past 3 am just so that I could finish reading What Alice Forgot!
So yeah, this book may be categorized as chick-lit, but I found that it really made me think about my own life. If something were to happen to me and I were to forget the last ten years of my life, what would I think about my “new” life? Would I be surprise by what…
I can’t believe that another month has flown by and it is already time to receive another ipsy glam bag! If you don’t know what ipsy is you can check out my previous post about it by clicking HERE As usual again this month my daughter was very excited about seeing what the ipsy glam bag design was going to look like. This month it is a gold faux leather bag with a raised texture pattern design with a matching tan zipper. She described this months bag as “really pretty with a ‘leatherish’ feel”.
Here is a picture of what my “glam bag sneak peak” said I would be getting in my bag this month…But it isn’t what I actually received. Too bad, because I like the items they were supposed to send me better than the ones that I got. Oh well, nothing I can do about it now. Here…
The Free Spirit eyeshadow palette is described as:
twenty day-to-night; luxurious textures; pure performance
There were no further description in the product box itself. As I swatched these on my arm, some shades were outstanding while others were okay. I noticed:
nine satin-matte eyeshadows (numbers 1-5, 11, 14, 16, 20)
seven pearlescent eyeshadows (compare Veluxe Pearl MAC eyeshadows)
three matte shadows with glitter (numbers 17-19)
one satin shadow with smaller amounts of glitter (number 15) compared to shades 17-19
The seven pearlescent shadows are instant favorites as they packed pigment and did indeed feel luxurious. However, there was some fall out but I am assuming I did not have to dip into them as aggressively as the satin shades. The satin shades in numbers 1 through 5 nearly killed me. They did not show up as great as the others. I will play with them more on my eyes rather…
Talk about a jaw dropper. Here is that word again – my favorite word: illuminating. Tom Ford had me at that and many others I follow on Instagram. As I enjoy staring at this beautiful piece – here are a few more pictures from when I received it in the mail today. No – I haven’t the heart to beat it up just yet, I do plan to do so in the morning.
Here is a fantastic swatch from Kristina, you can visit her here: @cubicledweller
Here are a few other pictures I took today
Here is the description from Bergdorfs New York: Tom Ford created this highlighting and illuminating powder duo to capture the two most flattering types of natural light on the skin: A soft white shade is like the luminous glow of daylight and a radiant golden shade is like the romantic illusion of candlelight. These…

I remember you like a splatter of raindrops on a window pane
Your smile was a butterfly kiss rioting in my chest
Your laughter felt like molten whiskey on a pouring rain
You captivated my eyes, you captured my soul
You were there, I had you
But only for a fleeting moment
I cannot make you stay even if I wanted to
Can you believe I’m actually blogging twice in less than 24 hrs?! I thought yesterday’s craft was so cute that it must be shared immediately!
Yesterday we learned about Jonah! I love the story of Jonah and it was personally one of my favorites growing up!
We learned how Jonah was playing “hide and seek” with God but the only difference was that Jonah was not having fun at all!
We cannot hide anything from God and when He tells us to go do something we’d better listen.
I told the kids that we are much like Jonah in the way that we tend to hide things from God. And that no matter how many sins we’ve committed we can always come to God and confess it to Him, and he is faithful and just to forgive us of ALL our sins. I could see their shocked faces…
