It's been awhile since I had time to post anything up here! It's been a pretty hectic and scary year as I'm sure everyone knows. It's quite an understatement. So I thought I'd post a little happiness up here for all of you. In times of stress, we need an outlet to release all of our anxiety and just focus on our selfcare, am I right? I've been quite apprehensive about going out to be honest, more so than usual so thrifting online it is! Here are a few vintage finds I've found recently. I may venture out....I sure do miss going to Home Goods! and I would love to see if they have any Halloweenie goodies out. I just can't find any cute blankets or throws online that I love at a good price like I can in that store. I know, I have a problem...I'm addicted to cute blankets! ha! 

Here's my newest My Little Pony.....Banana Sundae Pony. She's sooo cute! I love the color combo of the pale pastel pink and blue hair! 

I finally got my Enchanted Evening Barbie I've wanted! Her dress is SO pretty!! and has a little rosette at her hip! Oddly enough, she doesn't come with shoes! and with an evening gown. haha... I thought that was a little strange since my other Barbie is wearing a swimsuit....and does come with heels! 

My favorite fairytale has to be Sleeping Beauty and I had to have this cute little book when I saw it! It's just so darling! Here's a look inside!! 

There's are just a few of my newest finds! I actually have a pretty carousel horse music box I want to take photos of and some pretty new outfits, WOMAN'S DRESSES, I just got as well as a cute cherub vintage soap dish I just got at almost 50% off!! I'm really trying to fill my life with pretty things. I spent so much of my childhood not being able to get all the things I wanted, I want to try and make up for it even if I have to buy one thing at a time! I wish I was a millionaire and could just buy everything all at once but alas, I have a stinky budget I have to follow. sigh.... I hope you enjoyed all these dreamy finds and they made you smile today. Kisses!!!

Hiya pretty fleurs! So you know me, I'm obsessed with taking good care of my hair. It's been through a lot over the years, a bad perm when I was little, so much heat damage and lots and lots of products. My favorite hair product Hana Shine Serum got discontinued so I've been on the search for a new serum or other products that could deliver the same amazing results with very little success. I probably tried about 10 different products and none of them worked for me. I thought I'd try to search for the same ingredients and even came across a serum that very similar but in the end I couldn't stand the scent of it and it didn't work as well as my Hana Serum but funny story is I ended up getting a Amazon prime trial so I could save on shipping and then got a $10 credit from them just when my hair dryer broke and I needed to get a new one. Awesome, right?

I've never been really impressed with any of the hair dryers I've gotten in the past. They've either been too heavy to hold, didn't really get rid of my frizz (and I have A LOT!), or too hot so that it would make my hair crispy. I didn't really have high expectations when looking for a new one, let me tell ya! Of course, I love a pretty product and if it's pink and green I want it but sometimes when you get pretty aesthetics you don't get a good product and I'm happy to say with this new hair dryer I got it's pretty to look at and amazing to use too! I was definitely attracted to how cute this hair dryer looks and definitely needed something that would cut back on my frizz. This delivers all of that and more! Just think if I hadn't have gotten that hair serum which I can't even use...sigh...I never would have found this hair dryer! 

I've found my hair dryer for life. If this beauty ever breaks, I'm buying another one! It's super light weight so it doesn't hurt my arm holding it. The buttons are positioned perfectly so I don't accidentally switch one off or on. It's gorgeous!! It has a hot and warm setting as well as a high and low setting and it has a cool shot button. When I first used this I was blown away at how it tamed my frizz! I mean, like really tamed it!! and how shiny it got. I really love it. I can't even think of a con for it. The hair dryer by itself is almost as awesome as my Hana Shine Serum and that's saying a lot. 

Using the brand Bedhead also led me to a new shampoo Bedhead Urban Anti-dotes for damaged hair and ohhhh, my let me tell you I love the smell of this fizzy fruity ambrosia. It smells like something I would make for my shop.*warm smiles* It works great on my hair but can leave it a little stiff sometimes so I use the only conditioner that works for my hair Aussie Three Minute Miracle Moist Conditioner. It's the only one I can really use that doesn't over saturate my hair with moisture. Good stuff. I also use a clarifying shampoo every once in awhile to get rid of any extra buildup. So far it all seems to be working pretty good. I still miss my Hana Shine Serum...that stuff was ah-mazing. It never made my hair greasy but managed to make it super shiny and controlled my frizz like nothing else. These products below are great alternatives to it but I'm still going to be on the look out for a new frizz shine serum. Have you tried anything like that? Let me know. *wink* At any rate, I'd check out these pretties. I'm absolutely in love with this hair dryer.

SPOOKY ♥ Halloween Barbie 2019 ♥

Sunday, November 3, 2019

👻👻👻 I hope you had a wonderfully spooky Halloween! I love the idea of dressing up for Halloween but I never usually go all out. I somehow always feel so guilty about spending a lot of money on an outfit I may only wear one day. lol.. I really need to change that as I would love to get all spookified up as maybe a pirate, Morticia Addams, Alice in Wonderland...oh, I would love to go as Marie Antoinette!! Oui! And if I did put together a costume I would want it to be accurate as possible which means lots of $$$. Plus, I always think I'm not very photogenic as it's always so hard to get a good selfie I like. sigh.... Anyway, I decided to just go as Halloween Barbie after I found this adorable photo of her! So I found a sweater that was similar to hers and bat earrings! Here you go! Enjoy! 👻👻👻

This sweater has to be the warmest thing I've ever worn next to my Unicorn Onesie! heehee...even this super chunky pastel sweater I have doesn't compare.

Cute little socks with a cat face that glows in the dark!

A cup of hot cocoa with a ghostie marshmallow! Yum!

Had to include a photo of these adorable salt and pepper shakers.

"I am the darkness! but cuddle me!" 
My little sweetheart James taking a nap!

Hope you had a fabulous Halloween! But just because Halloween is over don't let it deter you from being spooky!! if only peeps sold Halloween decor all year long ha! I don't know about you but I'm already counting down the days till the next Halloween! Until then, I've got a "Tinsel & Tidings" Christmas Beauty Bar Collection to put up on the site and I've got to get it decorated for Christmas so you all can have super cute retro beauty potions for X-Mas! Yay!! Love you!!
