Seasons Box January 2013

This was my first Seasons Box and I am in love! This box got an A+ on everything. The packaging, presentation, quality, thoughtfulness, and contents of package were all impressively splendid.

Just like a gift from a dear friend!

So many adorable goodies.

Unearth Malee Thai Steam Bath Tea - Teas crafted from certified organic herbs. The herbs are used to alleviate headaches, sinus congestion, stress, and muscle tension.

Whispering Willow Whipped Shea Butter - Crafted from organic, raw and unrefined shea. Appears solid but liquefies when it connects with skin. Heavenly moisturizer!

Growing Up Herbal Skin Nourishing Mini Herbal Bath Bombs - 100% natural bath and shower bombs.  I can't wait to try these!

Kitira Boutique Hand-Woven Scarf - 100% cotton scarf  hand-woven by members of the hill tribes of Northern Thailand. This scarf is so cozy!

Vance Kitira Hand Poured Cathedral - Beautiful hand poured candle with light scent of cranberry and cinnamon.

My January Seasons Box was amazing! The theme Soft & Cozy followed entirely through the boxes contents. The cost of he box is only $34.90 ($29.95 + $4.95 S&H).  If you are interested in Seasons Box visit them here.

Down comes the tree

From experience I know how dull everything can look after Christmas time. Before I took my tree down I made two large topiaries. Filling the mantle with greens made the transition much more pleasant. It's like my own secret garden now!

Maybelline Color Whisper

This is Maybelline's New Color Whisper by Color Sensational. They come in 20 gorgeous shades. I found these three at my local Walmart. I had about 12 of them in my hand. My daughter swiftly reminded me I had other makeup to buy and to part with some of them (haha). These apply so smoothly with a translucent color that lasts.

Make It Beautiful Again

When moving into a new home you quickly find there is a million things you need and a lot of furniture to buy. I wanted to keep my bedroom set but it needed some help. The furniture had seen better days but still had a beautiful charm to it. I decided to fix it up because you can't get furniture like this without spending a small fortune. This project was only $30 and only took me a couple days.

BEFORE: You can see the furniture is quite dingy but not totally helpless.

AFTER: A light coat of white (for a washed look) and pop of teal on the back wood planks freshened up the whole set. I painted the handles and replaced the knobs.
