Happy Christmas, Happy New Year, Happy Chanukah, Happy Holidays to you and yours. Wherever you are, whether you celebrate or not, I hope you’re with friends and family that you love and who love you. The best blessing of all around the holidays is great friends and family everything else is cake.
Thank you for being a part of my online world this year. Thanks for keeping me company during the lipstick gone bad days, thanks for reading my rants about some beauty product or another and agreeing with me, that indeed it is crummy and I’m not nuts. Thanks for sharing the joy of skincare, makeup, and all things beauty with me. Thanks for reminding me how fun beauty is.
And most important thanks for sharing your lives and time with me. Your tweets, your comments, your e-mails all mean so much to me. You’re all my extended family and around this time of the year I get sentimental enough to shed a tiny tear that I can’t physically hug each and every one of you.
My Christmas wish would be to have a big party and invite all of you over for it. We could laugh, watch Doctor Who, eat really good food, and ooooo and ahh over each others makeup collections. Maybe one day! A girl can dream.
My other Christmas wish is that you have a very warm, safe, happy Holiday. Remember it isn’t about the presents or decorations or even the delicious food. It’s all about being around good people…family..friends…and reminding yourself to be the best person you can be and not to sweat the little stuff but to just live in this moment. This very happy moment.
The world isn’t over, the zombie plaque hasn’t hit, and Santa is on the way!
Have fun and I wish I was there to say Happy Holidays in person.
P.S. Giveaways continue into the New Year so stay tuned next week!
It seems like minutes turn into hours and hours into days and days into weeks and weeks into years a little too quickly lately. When I was young the Holidays seemed to take ages and ages to arrive. As an adult they seem to whip in and out of my life before I have a chance to enjoy them.
As autumn comes to a close and the mad rush of the Holiday Season arrives I hope you take a second to whisper a word of thanks that you woke up this morning to enjoy it all. Sometimes life is a cake walk other times it feels like we’re climbing up a never ending hill but at least we are here to do it. The only thing that matters is you can crack your eyes open in the morning, give a yawn, and face the exciting adventure ahead yet again. Give thanks that you’re here today to enjoy all that this wonderful world has to offer. Give thanks that you have someone to share it with even if that someone is just your cat! Give thanks you have a pillow to rest your weary head on at the end of the day. Give thanks for that toast and tea you enjoyed this morning. Give thanks even if you had a crappy day because at least you’re here to experience that day!
A million people will tell you that life is to short and I sincerely doubt you want to hear it again. But it is. We age so quickly and we seem to rush through our life so very fast. Take a moment to sit back, breath in, and look around at all the wonderful things that make up your own life and remember to feel grateful for all of them be they big or small.
You don’t need Thanksgiving to give thanks for all that you have. Giving thanks for what you have should be what you utter the moment your head hits the pillow after a long day. But Thanksgiving is a great holiday to give you a little nudge and reminder that you sure are lucky enough to enjoy this rather grand adventure we call life.
I’m very blessed and thankful for all that I have and that my dear friends include every single one of you. Thank you for spending your precious time with me! We may not be traditional friends but friends we are none the less.
Hi there! It’s a Who kinda morning…! Going mobile is totes my busy song. I do wonder why someone hasn’t picked it up for a cell commercial….you should see me sing it during Karaoke nights, it’s the hottest mess in the world when I’m pretending to be Pete Townshend. I always thought Pete sounded remarkably like Roger in certain parts of the song.
So sorry about the lack of posts this week. Work, life, the universe, and everything has me a bit busy! But I promise new posts are upcoming shortly.
I hope you’re all safe and warm. You’re in my thoughts Jersey, Long Island, and others on the East Coast still without power. If there’s some small thing I can do for any of you please don’t hesitate to contact me via the contact button. I’d be happy to do what I can…! There’s a storm on the horizon and I’m hoping it’ll pass us by because I really can’t stand to think of anyone without heat on a cold night.
I’m sorry about the Sephora sale. Posting about it seems to have caused complete and utter chaos. I honestly don’t have insider info about this and I know many of you are upset with the sale (or really happy I hope?!) and how it went down this year. If I could fix it to make everyone happy I surely would but sadly I don’t have that power. Boo!
I surely hope your week is going well. I sincerely wish you all the best for your week ahead and hope for a quick weekend to appear for us all so we can rest, relax, and just chill for a moment while we take a deep breath and prepare for our next adventure.
I hope to talk to you all soon in the comments.
New posts, reviews, and general babble upcoming shortly.
Don’t forget to enter all the lovely giveaways going on at the moment.
Been a bit busy around these parts today so sorry for the lack of posts. I actually have dozens and dozens of pre-written posts but I don’t have the images to go along with them thus the delay in my reviews/posts as I still have to crop pics, place them in the posts, etc…
The good news is there will be giveaways later today! Yay! Happy days! Expect those to go live soonish.
How’s all else with you? I hope those who were affected by Sandy are getting back to some sort of normalcy. I surely hope you, your family, and friends all have lights and didn’t run into any major issues due to the storm. I feel very lucky and blessed the only thing I had to contend with was a ton of branches, leaves, and general outdoor clean up. I wish so hard that was the case for everyone else.
If you do live in the New York Area I just wanted to quickly tell you local Salvation Army’s are collecting dry and canned food items as well as clothing items/blankets. I’d suggest calling them and asking what they might need. I dropped off some blankets and canned food earlier this morning and made a cash donation. You don’t have to donate money, they are more than happy with some sort of food donation. There are a ton of people they are trying to feed right due to the fact so many folks are without lights so any and all food is pretty welcome. My mother has volunteered at the Salvation Army for many, many years she’s always said they are very happy with any food items you are willing to donate. If you’d like to make donations to Salvation Army or Red Cross both have websites you can use to do so.
In other news the weekend is looming….hopefully we have some nice weather. I’m tired of the chilly rain and clouds!
Anything awesome planned for your weekend?
Do come out and say hey today if you have an extra second to do so.
Would love to hear from you!
Happy Almost Weekend!
All my love no matter what part of the universe you’re in!
