Aloha Friday

In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response.
My question: What is your fave mascara? I'm mostly asking because I'm trying to find 1 that I really like. I like Rimmel Sexy curves, that I'm using right now. But I think I want to try Covergirl Lash blast.

My October faves

I got this Winter berry hand lotion today in Aerie. I think I might wear it as body cream. They have shimmer brushes, body creams & lip glosses too.

I love this Vanilla bean ice cream. I'm a chocolate addict, but lately I'm started to like vanilla too.

I got this pumpkin @ Cracker barrel

This spray is $3 & not that big, but it last for an hr or 2, so it's so worth it.

This Vanilla coconut oil from B&B works smells so good.

So behind

I feel like I am so behind in everything. I keep saving blogs & websites to my faves & I have about 100 new 1s that I've added in the past month or 2. I really need to organize again. I'm also behind in leaving comments on blogs. I'm hoping to catch up on everything the next few weeks. I've even been staying up late to get things done & I can't seem to catch up.

Rachael Ray cookware

Lately I've been noticing the cookware that Rachael Ray has been using on her tv show. There was nothing on the tv in my office (I only get 12 channels) tonight, so I put on QVC & the Value of the day was her stoneware. So we ordered it for X-mas. It's our pressie to each other. I ordered it in green. I'm looking forward to cooking in these.

Is it too early?

To make my X-mas list? I started it already.
I love these double layer shea socks from Bath & Body works.
The rest of the items are from Vic secret. I walked thru' there the other day & saw tons of things to add to my list.

What is on your X-mas list if you started it already?

Random Tuesday thoughts

Last week I won these cute bird earrings. I'm giving them to my Mom for X-mas. She doesn't read this blog. She doesn't know how to use a computer.

I got this pretty glass @ a craft fair on Saturday. I'm going to put a tealight in it.

My friend Marion got a new Coach purse for her anniversary, so she gave me her old purse & wallet. It's a bit small for me & T's things, but I really like it.

T went for her flu shot today. She did really good & didn't cry. Last night we were brushing her teeth & she pointed at my left eye & the dark circle under it & said "purple". Then she pointed @ my right eye & my dark circle under that eye & said "purple". Yes, they are. At least she knows what the color purple is. It's been real cold here. The heat is turning on a lot. Tomorrow is hubs b-day. We're making him brownies with choc frosting.
