Things I Can’t Live Without (for the time being anyway)

I tried to come up with some witty paragraph to start this off, but it just wasn’t happening.  So, here are some things I can’t live without (or, at least, I don’t want to live without them!):

  • Chanel glossimer in #04 Spark.  This is a great color by itself or on top of your favorite lipstick.  It has a great shimmer to it.  I always receive tons of compliments when I wear this!
  • Clinique Redness-reducing make-up.  It really works.  It has excellent coverage and yet is not heavy at all.  I wear very little and it keeps my pink cheeks from showing up at the end of the day.
  • my comfy house shoes-a little sad-looking, I know, but no one gave me new ones for Christmas
  • Caphalon family size skillet.  I use this just about every day
  • nifty little strawberry tool (my kids love strawberries and eat about a package per day)
  • iPhone (absolutely CANNOT live without this)
  • my sewing machine-I have my eye on a Bernina, but it just ain’t happenin’ yet
  • favorite coffee cup from Starbucks-John serves me coffee in this every single morning.  He is such a doll.
  • Redkin 10-guts for the new super-cute do. Actually, I have used this stuff for about 10 years now and I would rather where a paper sack on my head than try to style my hair without it!

Shouldn't be hard-can you find all 9 items?

 I think I will stop there.  I’m sure I could think of more, but I don’t want to exhaust my reader!


Good Hair

It is amazing what a new haircut and color can do for a person.  I got my hair cut and got some highlights and lowlights put in it, and now I am a new woman!  My new hairstylist guru Michael at Christy’s Hair Studio and Spa in downtown Big Spring is a true artist.  I have several friends who have gone to him for years and one day I just decided that it was time for me to give him a try.  Trying out a new stylist can be a very nerve-racking experience.  I went to the same girl for over 10 years.  She is located in north Austin and I am in West Texas.  The haircuts were becoming few and far between.  Yet, I was still having a hard time finding someone in my area.  But, I am so glad that I finally took the steps to find someone new.  Like I was saying before, I am a new woman!  I have not received so numerous compliments on my hair in a very, very, very long time (maybe never).  My husband loves it.  My friends love it.  Even my 5 year-old son has been telling me that my hair looks really pretty.  I would even venture to say that my non-friends (if I have any) are quite envious of the new do!  Can you tell it has given me some new found confidence?  If anyone is in need of a stylist, I would like to HIGHLY recommend Michael.  He is a Picasso.  The cat’s meow.  The cherry on top.  Cooler than the other side of the pillow.  Amaaaaazing! 

He also gave Sam a haircut.  I don’t know if it has had the same effect on him.  I haven’t been able to get him to let me do the fauxhawk since that day.  (Big frowny face!)

A good name is more desirable than great riches; to be esteemed is better than silver or gold.
