Hello friends and happy Friday. I guess I am happy it’s Friday. My vacation is winding down. It has been a fun week. We didn’t do our beach vacation but we did get some much needed things done around the house and had fun just hanging out together. My sister and I had a shopping trip yesterday and lunch and that was a lot of fun. We also got together with my niece and a friend earlier in the week.
I have some favorites of mine I would like to share with you. You may have tried some of these or are using them. Let me know if you have or do and what you think.
First of all is my new reading glasses that I got at the Dollar Tree. They weren’t a dollar they were actually a dollar and twenty five cents. But aren’t they cute!!! I have a pair in every room of the house now. HA!!!!
I got this Glyconic Acid Toner at T.J. Maxx. My sister and I did some shopping yesterday. I like to try new things from T.J. Maxx because they are relatively inexpensive and it is a good way to test products without spending a fortune. I have only used this twice but it really made my skin feel so fresh. It also has a fresh clean smell.
I always thought that L.A. Colors was a cheap no good makeup brand. I never really bothered looking at their products but I have to say I have been impressed by this eye makeup. You can buy this at Walmart and again not a huge investment to try out some new colors. I couldn’t believe how well this shadow lasted all day. Compared to some I have used and spent much more money on I am very happy with it.
Yummy Sea Salt caramels. I love Carmels. I got these at T.J. Maxx yesterday. You know how they have all those impulse items when you are waiting in the check out line. I saw these and just had to have them. A good size bag for only $4.99. I am very impulsive.
I have seen these slides all over social media. There are several different brands I loved the look and they come in so many different colors. I wasn’t sure I wanted to spend $25.00 on a pair. So I saw these at Walmart a couple of weeks ago for $11.99. They were on clearance. I looked at them but I knew I didn’t really need them. Last week I was in Walmart and they were marked down to $9.00 and such a variety of colors. Of course what do I choose but black. But I do have a reason for this. I plan to wear them when it gets cooler with some of my colorful socks I have knitted. Yep I am that person. I do plan on returning to Walmart, where they may have been reduced even more, and grab a blue and a pink or yellow pair. They are so comfy.
Have you tried this Cheddar Bay Biscuit Mix. I used it several years ago and then sort of forgot about it. I bought a box last week at the grocery store and made them last Sunday for dinner. A couple of things I had forgotten from last time. Use twice the amount of Cheddar cheese and add a little more water. They are so yummy.
I love using this sponge for my foundation makeup. If you don’t use a sponge it may take a little getting used to but once you do you will love it. I always use this type of sponge. I think it makes your makeup application so much smoother.
And finally two books I finished last week. The first one, 28 Summers, by Elin Hilderbrand. I think I could read anything by this woman and love it. I have read everything by her except The Hotel Nantucket which will be my next one. This book 28 Summers was so good I could’t stop reading it. I found myself picking it up every time I had a spare moment. One thing I loved about it at the beginning of each summer there would be recap of what was going on in the world at that time. That brought back a lot of memories.
The Forever Summer was an audio book. I just finished it a couple of days ago. It was very good. A little slow in places but I would still recommend it.
These are some of my favorites this week. But my most favorite of course is my little Scruffy. Today is National Dog Day and I have to share him with you. He is doing as well as can be expected with his heart issues. It breaks my heart to see the changes in him. We will love him as long as we can and cherish every moment with him.
I hope you enjoyed this list of things and may find some of them useful to you.
Love your day your way!!!!!
