Santa Clause is Coming to Town

For the next month or so, I will be featuring Christmas gift ideas for all of those special people in your life.

Since this is a beauty blog, I have to start by featuring an amazing case of goodies from Sephora. I received something similar to this a few years back but this makeup train case is just beyond! It really puts the one I received to shame.

Included in this case are:

– 64 x waterproof eye shadow
– 12 x longwear cream eyeliner
– 6 x eye top coat
– 6 x lip top coat
– 48 x lip gloss
– 3 x blush
– 6 x multi-purpose cream for eye, cheek, and lip
– 3 x multi-purpose luminizer
– 3 x makeup brush
– Mirror

This case is a great start for those of you wanting to branch out with your typical makeup routine. It has some great, vibrant colors but also includes safe options. Good luck experimenting!

Not Your Ordinary Pumpkin

In honor of everyone’s favorite spooky holiday, I will be posting a few different Halloween themed features through out the month. One of my favorite things to do when I was a kid was carve our pumpkin. It probably had a lot to do with liking to get dirty and getting to pull that gross, slimy, seed filled stuff out of the pumpkin.

Now that I am a little older and only slightly more mature…

National Adopt-a-Shelter Dog Month

2 years ago, I adopted my sweet Bailey from the Orlando Humane Society and it was the best decision ever! She was originally brought into the shelter because she was hit by a car. Being a black lab, it is understandable why they didn’t see her in the dark of the night. Unfortunately, the person who hit her did not stop to help BUT a police officer did make it in time. He brought her to the shelter where she was examined and given a good bill of health (minus a few cracked teeth and bloody eyes).

I encourage everyone to adopt their animals from the shelter or private adoption agency, they really are the best dogs out there!

I looked at all the caged animals in the shelter…the cast-offs of human society.
I saw in their eyes love and hope, fear and dread, sadness and betrayal.
And I was angry.
“God,” I said, “this is terrible! Why don’t you do something?”
God was silent for a moment and then He spoke softly.
“I have done something,” He replied.
“I created You.”
