Pretty and Fresh Makeup look with Neutrogena





Having teen daughters is fun and challenging and oh, so rewarding.  I look at them and see parts of me interspersed here and there with their own unique personalities and styles.  Both daughters got their love of makeup straight from me, but Melissa must have got in that line twice! From a very early age, she has loved playing with makeup. Once we gave her permission to wear makeup, she was in heaven and quickly mastered makeup application and techniques.

Noelle by Greg Kincaid Book Review

I normally wouldn’t start a book series with the last book, but I did just that last month when on a whim, I received an email from Blogging for Books about of Noelle by Greg Kincaid. I had never heard of the McCray family, the cornerstone of a series of novels by Mr. Kincaid, but when I saw the snowy scene and the adorable little dog on the cover of Noelle, I was drawn in.

Take time to be creative this month

I adore January for a multitude of reasons. My youngest daughter was born this month.  Linens and home goods are on sale this month. I get to plan and organize a lot of things in January. Filling out new calendars and planners for the year is time well spent in my opinion. As I was organizing my stack of planners and notebooks, I noticed I had several craft and hobby books I needed to find a home for as well. That’s when I realized that unless I made time to be creative this month (and every month of the year), I would need to block out time to allow myself to enjoy hobbies and creative endeavors.  January is the perfect time to be creative! Dust off one of your hobbies, or start a new one. Read on for some creative ideas.
