Dreaming of a Pink Christmas!

Well Hello There,

This post is a “just cuz” one.  If you know me; you know I love the colors Pink, White, Black and adore me some Glitter!  So all these “faux” Christmas trees that have been on trend lately just make me plain happy – plus pre-lit and no needles, use again next year, win win.  (I know dad nothing beats real but……..) 

Gosh I love a White pre-lit with white lights tree or even a bubble gum pink tree!  Que angels singing!  “ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh” check out these examples I found online surfing.





Putting up our tree this weekend – a bit late this year due to travel and family priorities.  With our pup Abe @abethenewfoundland still just using the 6ft White Tree I purchased from Walmart few years back!  Want to get Pink Tree too but may wait and see how he handles the ornaments this year first.  
Trying to set up family picture tomorrow as well – its just gonna be Abe, Mike and myself.  Since kids grown and outta house all over the place this will have to do.  Check instagram tomorrow for that one!  Tell me how your gonna decorate – do you have more than one tree?  Traditional, rustic, modern, vintage….. I’d love to see your pictures and get your thoughts .
Sending Big Warm Hugs Your Way!

holiday Season 2016

Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays Everyone!

Finishing up my shopping but this rain and ice making for rough go of it today.  My children are grown, my mom passed several years ago – family spread out all over so the holidays take on a new meaning for me.

This year I am beginning a new tradition of adopting a few families in need over the holiday season and taking on job as ELF in training and trying my best to help Santa fulfill their Christmas List.  What better way to feel the spirit of Christmas, right?  I know it sounds cliche but I really am getting so much more out of this than I can put into words.  God has blessed me so much that I just want to give.  Give back, give my time, give my help, just GIVE of myself.  

However while doing my “elf duties” feeling like this calls for a fantastic RED LIP & some festive clothes.  Get me more in the mood.  So take a minute to smile more, pause and admire all the lights & decor and to tell those near and dear how much you love them.

Below is just a little vignette I created on Polyvore (love you Poly)!  That makes me smile.  Crazy for +Kevyn Aucoin lip pencils, lipsticks and glosses – +NYX Professional Makeup has some great products too on the cheap people – 
“FO REAL”!  So bundle up today my friends – throw on a perfect smile, grab a loved one, get some hot cocoa and have a great weekend!   

holiday Season 2016


I hope this season brings you peace, love, joy and a renewed sense of kindness to your fellow man.

Uploading guest room progress this week – be on the lookout on my Instagram, FB & twitter feeds!  Cheers!
