Thursday Thoughts ~ April 23, 2015

Ramblings of a Suburban Mom

First of all, I'm not a Dr. Oz fan. I only catch it if it's playing on the waiting room TV. Having said that, as consumers we have to remember that doctors on TV are there for entertainment, as well as information.

This story has a Las Vegas feel to it. Don't you think?

I couldn't even support this ring on my finger! Besides you'll definitely be in need of security when you're wearing it. But it would be fun trying!

I've never been a fan of these type of city ordinances, regarding the homeless. I hope that this charity, The Chow Train, finds a way to have the fine dismissed.

How Do You Apply Spring Lipstick Colors? Head to YouTube!

I remember when I was considering wearing wigs, 5 years ago, didn't know where to start and our son said, "Mom go on YouTube! They have everything".

He was so right! So when it comes to rocking spring lipstick colors, like plums, pinks and natural, I headed to some of my favorite YouTube beauties for instruction.

Here's just a few of my favorites!

Gwynnie Bee Is In The House!

It's always a treat when I see the signature white Gwynnie Bee box in the mail! I'm really looking forward to styling these 3 pieces! Gorgeous colors and light weight fabrics for spring and summer!

Proverbs 31 Ministries Online Bible Study: Week 2

How are you enjoying the Walk in Faith Bible Study, Proverbs 31 Ministries, so far? I just get so excited every week to learn, laugh and cry.

The social media around the bible studies are terrific. Facebook and Twitter are my favorite way to communicate with other participants. Which one are yours?

Don't forget to share a photo of your favorite quote from the book, use the hashtag #P31OBS #WalkInFaith on Instagram and Twitter!

It's Time For A Scrapbook Project

It's been a very long time since I did a scrapbook project. So, I decided to pull down this one, from my craft project closet and get to work. I love the colors. And the mini scrapbooks are perfect for my painful hands.

Of course, I'll share more photos after the project is done.

Spring Walmart Beauty Box Has Arrived!

Did you know that Walmart offers a beauty subscription box for just $5? It's sent 4 times a year, each season. And it's full of samples and coupons! As always, beauty subscription boxes offer you the opportunity to try out products.

The box is shipped via USPS. This month, they provided a tracking number. I definitely appreciate that!

Thank you so much BECCA ETC!

Buy Big And Then Spread Some Love!

Today, I decided that I would break up the big flower bouquet that hubby bought me into small ones.

And I didn't let the fact that I don't own small vases stop me. I just broke out various drinking glasses and a champagne glass to complete these beautiful small wonders of Spring!
