It's the Gift-Giving Season!

Ahh!  This is the most wonderful time of the year!  I roll right into the Christmas hustle and bustle with one thing on my mind: gift-giving!  Maybe that's a bit materialistic of me, but I love giving gifts to family and friends and those whom I care about to show my appreciation over the past year.  Plus, the Wise Men gave Baby Jesus presents to honor Him becoming King one day, and, not to dishonor the importance of this Biblical Event, but the people in my "village" who help me get through life one day at a time, are like "royalty" to me.  So, I'd like to shower them with little gifts, too.

Right now, I'm currently obsessed over these adorable little Mini Pizza Boxes that Stampin' Up! released in our Holiday Catalog.  These boxes assemble quickly and easily, so I don't have to make them myself.  Instead, I can simply add a few frills and there we go.  Ready to stuff and give.  How easy is that!?

This week, I'm decorating them up so I can pack them full of goodies (think cookies or candies) for the service providers in my life.  Like the Sanitation Workers, who faithfully each Tuesday, come by and pick up my awful piles of trash (seriously, I don't care how many layers of Diaper Genie plastic you have, poopy toddler diapers STINK!).  And my Postal Carrier and UPS Delivery Driver, who seem to come by for a weekly visit with boxes for me.  These folks deserve a little gift of appreciation, and these little boxes are perfect for that!

Check out a few that I've done here:

Tutorial Tuesday: VIA Coffee Holder

Are you following me on Pinterest yet??  If not, please do!  There's a bunch of amazing goodness there!  One of which, is an extremely popular pin---my VIA Coffee Holder. I enjoy trying new things and one day, while wondering the aisles of my local Target, I stumbled upon these new little packages of coffee, called "VIA".  It's by Starbucks and they are instant coffee singles.  Whhaaat!!?  Naturally, (because I'm a victim of marketing) I bought some.  Then I thought, These are so cute!  I want to do something with them and my Coffee Cafe Suite!   After that, my VIA Coffee Holder/Folder (whatever you want to call it) was born. I imagine you can see why this is not just my  most re-pinned pin, but it's pretty popular on Pinterest, in general.  Woot! Now, my friends, I will show you how to make your own with my Tutorial Tuesday! Supply List: Cardstock (I used Early Espresso, Pear Pizzazz, and Crumb Cake for the samples above) Check out the Coffee

September Challenge: Drink More Water!

Do you drink lots of water?  I don't!  I've found that I am hard-pressed to get even 8 ounces of water in my body during the day and that is no bueno!   I was really beginning to see the signs of dehydration---including a lack of energy and irritability!  (Yes, that's a real thing!  Check out the symptoms of dehydration here ). So, I decided to do something about it.  I decided to start drinking more water.  And I read more about water. It's no secret that water helps with your overall health; like aiding in weight-management , energize muscles , balance the body's natural fluids and improve kidney function .  But, I was shocked at how much water can help with your skin!  And for someone who is kind of fanatic about their own skin (yes, I am!) I wanted to know more! Did you know that your skin is 64% water?  So, it's safe to say that your skin health is directly correlated with your water consumption.  In fact, dermatologists and doctors have seen that wa

Tip Tuesday: The Eyes Have It!

Did you know that when it comes to creating a stunning look with cosmetics, your eye shape  has quite a lot to do with that?  It's true!  Take myself, for example.  I am one of the blessed individuals with a Monolid  eye shape (thanks, genetics) so many of the gorgeous shimmery "peekaboo" looks for eyes with visible creases (which is all the rest of you folks!) I cannot easily achieve.  *Sigh*. And just like clothing, one size and one style does not  fit all!  (I could never wear a romper, my short little torso just can't handle that!)  So, today's Tip Tuesday is all about learning how to identify your eye shape and some cosmetic tips for applying your make-up to bring out the best  for your eyes! Let's get started with a couple tips to check out your eyes: Use a good mirror---a handheld is good, a stand-up is better, and a stand-up magnifying mirror is best! Lights, please!  Artificial lighting is fine, provided you have a clear view of your eye, ther
