Love My White Mountain Boots

Its my favorite time of year…its boot season baby! You cannot just own one pair of boots either. However, it can be tough to own more than one if you are only going after the super expensive brand names. White Mountain Shoes is one of my favorite places to shop. You can find stylish shoes and boots at a great price, and don’t forget to check out their other brands, Cliffs & Rialto!

“The White Mountain Footwear Group was founded in 1979 with one mission:  to produce stylish, quality footwear at a great value. The company was started by 4 shoemakers who combined their wealth of shoe industry experience to reopen a recently shuttered factory in Lisbon, New Hampshire, the historical home of American Shoemaking. Today, the White Mountain Footwear Group currently owns and operates 3 women’s shoe brands: White Mountain (1979),Rialto (2005) and Cliffs by White Mountain (2010). Our international team is spread out across our 8 offices in the US and China, and our design team travels the world year round to bring you the latest designs and trends.  Our company standards are based on integrity, quality and loyalty, and we are proud to carry out all of our product development here in the US. From our simple beginnings, the White Mountain Footwear Group remains one of the top employers in Lisbon NH, and to this day we have employees who have been with us since day one. The creation of our website marks an important milestone for us, which you can read about here.” ~White Mountain Shoes




I just adore the Frontier Black Bootie. Right now you can get this boot on sale for only $68.88, and you can wear this style with almost anything! Jeans, a dress, a pair of leggings and a tunic…the possibilities are endless! I really love the vintage-grunge look of this boot…the less polished, the better in my eyes! Great job on this style White Mountain Shoes…not only are they stylish, but they are comfortable as well! Not too many combat-style boots are, so that is a huge plus!

Mineral Makeup

It can be difficult when searching for a makeup that will not be harmful to your skin. There is such a variety on the market now, that it could take months to see which one works well for you. Of course, there may be side effects from a few that may dry your skin out or cause your skin to break out, so you have to be careful. It is nice to be able to get a makeup product that works well for your skin and gives you a natural look.

Prismatic minerals blur the lines of imperfections for a flawless, virtually weightless soft focus finish. Mineral Makeup Care is tinted by minerals and contains no oils, allowing for long-lasting color that stays true all day. Available in 4 formulas to suit any skin perfectly.”~AHAVA

My favorite from the Mineral Makeup line is the light foundation. It goes on smooth, and looks great! The foundation blends in well with my skin, and my skin does not feel caked or like something is weighing it down. “Paraben-free * Allergy tested. Approved for Sensitive Skin. Non-Comedogenic. Fragrance-Free. Not tested on animals.”~ AHAVA.

Choose from four shades for only $28.00. Make it a set by adding the loose powder as well.

Little changes that make a big impact


There are several different ways that you can upgrade a home. You can paint a room a different color to change the theme, or you could hang a mirror to make the room seem larger. You could even go as small as changing the light switches. There are so many different styles of products for each little area of your home, and the possibilities are endless when it comes to upgrading lights and fixtures.
To upgrade a home and be more efficient you can change a light fixture to a ceiling fan. You have so many options as to what style ceiling fan you want, and you can choose whether you want lights, or if you would just like the sleek look without the lights. There are large ceiling fans that are great for a large open space, or there are smaller fans for rooms that are close and tiny. Ceiling fans are great to have, and here at we feel that ceiling fans should be in every room.
One company that makes fabulous ceiling fans is Hunter Fans. “Since 1886, Hunter Fan Company has innovated new and smarter ways to clean, circulate and condition the air in your home.” ~Hunter Fans
We love the Five Minute Fan. This fan is very well made and you can purchase in the color of your choice, but it does not require as much work to put it together and hang like other ceiling fans. The fan already comes 90% pre-assembled so that you do not have to spend the entire day putting the fan together and trying to hang it. Hunter Fan wants the assembly process to be a breeze.

The Five Minute Fan with the brushed nickel can make a room very modern. It gives a simple and stylish look that really can pull a room together. The power of the fan is fantastic, and the option to change the colors of the blade from Maple to Cherry is great. You can also choose from a 50″ or 52″ blade span, and the crafted glass comes in swirled marble or frost. The swirled marble is very elegant and chic, and goes well in any room. Another benefit of this fan is that it is energy efficient.

Make Hunter Fan your choice today and purchase the Five Minute Fan. There are several participating retailers where you can purchase, so head in today!


Where do you keep your cosmetics?

I love my cosmetics! I love trying different shades and changing up the color schemes for the different seasons. I am into the brown and purple shades, however, trying something new is never a bad thing. So of course, my cosmetics never have a home. They are spread out everywhere. Little bags help but eventually the eye shadows end up getting broken and the eye liner smears all over the bag, which of course, gets all over everything else. I have been on a search for something that could hold all of my makeup and be stylish enough to sit out on the vanity. Then I thought of it! Why not buy something that I grew up using? Caboodles!
Caboodles has several different cases to help keep you organized. You can choose choose from the Petite or the Grand Train Cases. These two are my favorite because they are simple to open and close and I love the styles. The Petite Train Case comes in styles called Makeup Maven, Ooh La La, My Style, Two-of-a-Kind, Pretty Woman, All Dolled Up, Treasure Collector, and Prima Donna. The Petite Cases are great for the little ones. My daughter loves to be like her mommy and watches me almost every morning when I put on my makeup. She watches me put everything away in my caboodle, and that is why I had to get her one. I bought her little chap sticks and nail polishes so that she could put items in her caboodle, and she keeps it safe in her room. They are great to have and really keep our makeup, or even your little personal items to yourself.

The Grande Train Cases come in a variety of patterns and colors as well. My favorite is the Adore which comes in the Faux Croc. This Caboodle is very chic, and has four open trays, and a locking latch. I am sure many have some items that you would like to be kept away without any little fingers getting a hold of them. This is great for my makeup because my little ones will sneak in their and have a field day with my makeup, and come out looking like they are ready for Halloween.
Caboodles can be found at many stores, here are a few that are known; Target, Walmart, Walgreen’s, and Harmon. The prices range from $5-$40 and are well worth the money. The Holidays are arriving fast, and many are already starting their Christmas shopping. Caboodles would make a great gift for anyone, and are found at a retailer near you.

H2O Plus

What type of face products do you use? Do you look for a  product that will help with oil, or one that can help to prevent blemishes. When you go to a store, the amount of brands that there are  can be overwhelming. You could stand in  front of the same aisle for a half an hour or more. Is it worth it?
Well, many women and men have turned to other sources. You see the ads for products that claim to help with any facial need you may have, but you will only know when you spend the initial payment of $19.95 and $19.95 for every other month after. I personally do not want to have to make that commitment for a face cleanser.
The Oasis Oil-Free collection has a variety of products that can fit your needs. You can purchase their bestseller, the Face Oasis Hydrating Treatment for $34.00, and see what everyone is raving about. H2O Plus has listed their key elements in this product:
“Multivitamin Complex: A supercharged blend of vitamins A, C & E that helps increase skin’s elasticity while delivering powerful antioxidants to help repair and prevent cell damage.
Phospholipids: Cellular compatible microspheres that deliver active ingredients within the epidermal layers while helping to improve skin texture.
Hydrating Marine Blend: A triple-powered synthesis of marine botanicals that optimizes skin’s moisture balance while bolstering free radical resistance.
•Wakame: Brown kelp fronds harvested from the Sea of Japan; energizes skin’s natural functions and recharges tone
•Sea Lettuce: Dewy yellow-green leaves cultivated from the coast of Brittany, France; supports skin-firming collagen and elastin
•Fennel: Waxy green ribbons abundant along rocky English sea cliffs; empowers skin to resist aging environmental damage” ~H2O Plus

The hydrating product helps to diminish fine lines…who would not want this? There is also hydrating products for your eyes, for overnight, or you could purchase kits for a daily routine. The Oasis Daily Hydrating System is a $51 value and is sold for only $40. This product will rid away makeup while keeping in moisture to help diminish fine lines.

There are several other items that are in the Oasis Hydrating collection as well that you would love! Go to H2O Plus to see what could work best for you.

Good Enough for the Holidays

We have several recipes that are great to enjoy! I would LOVE to share a quick and easy one with you this week. Corn Muffins are always a hit with the company. What my husband and I have done recently is add jalapenos to the mix. It is a great way to add some flavor, and depending on how much you add, there can be a kick of heat or just enough for extra flavor to the corn muffin mix.



It is a simple recipe:
Follow the instructions to the corn muffin mix when preparing and mixing the ingredients. Before you pour the batch into a pan to be baked, clean the jalapenos and dice them up. You can leave them in larger pieces if you like depending on your preference. I love spicy food, however, when I have company, I do not want to have them reaching for water constantly! You must try this recipe, and only use a few jalapenos to begin with. That way you can tell if you would like them to be a little more spicy. Add the diced jalapenos to the corn muffin mix, and then pour into the pan. You then would follow the remainder of the instructions on the baking time and temperature form the box.


I am always looking for a cleaning product that is safe for the environment, and it can clean as well. I like to have a variety of cleaning products from many different brands that are Eco, and now you can start to see more and more Eco-friendly cleaning products on the market. One that I would like to bring to every ones attention is Bon Ami. This product does not have the harsh chemical smells as many do, and it cuts the grime and grease just as the other products do. You can get a different cleaning product for each chore in the house.
This product is great because there are no chemicals added! Bon Ami believes in being simple. “Simple ingredients have been the base of our cleaning powder since it was first created in 1886. Why ruin a great thing?” ~Bon Ami
Here are just some of the ingredients that are used in their cleaning products. Do not worry, you do not need to break out the dictionary for these ones because they are items that you have heard before.
  • Baking Soda…. what does baking soda help to do best? Why that is eliminate those nasty odors that seem to arrive with dirt and grime and other bacteria that likes to try and survive.
  • Biodegradable cleaning agents from corn, coconut, and palm. Yes, I did say corn, coconut, and palm. Now your food can help you clean!
  • Biodegradable preservatives.
  • Citric Acid.
  • Corn Alcohol.
  • Epsom Salts.
  • Essential Oils.
  • Feldspar.
Those are just a few, but all of the ingredients are safe and gentle, and are ingredients that you know. Bon Ami has 4 different products; powder cleanser, dish soap, all-purpose cleanser, and liquid cleanser. You can purchase these products online at Bon Ami.
The powder cleanser is great to have. Something that may shock you about this formula, is that it is gentle and safe enough to use on glass. People used to clean their glass with this formula and it did not scratch the window, and it was spotless! How many other powder cleansers can do the same?
You have to try them all to truly be able to benefit from their products. You can buy a single product, or in bulk for a friend, and everyone will love their results.
