Very Sad Today - R.I.P. Alexander McQueen

I have nothing say. Just feeling very sad to see someone else so young and talented decide to leave this life by suicide. Greatful for everyone in my life.

Yummy Nail Art!

How amazing is this?!??!! Of course it's nail art from Japan. Just recently someone came into my store rockin some bows and sparkles on her acrylic nails. I was absolutely in awe. The funny thing is she was on her way to Sundance and didn't know how she was going to wear gloves. So I googled "Japanese Nail Art" and found these amazing pictures in an old posting on . If I had the patience to sit thru a manicure I would be sporting some cupcakes, bows & sparkles. The problem would be trying to get things done. I don't think I could stop staring at my nails :)

Praise the Rosebud Salve!!

I love this stuff. It's amazing!!! The multi-purpose lip balm. And I do mean multi-purpose. I use it on chapped lips and skin! I always have one in the purse and two at home. As a mom it's my go to when the kid has super dry lips and especially for the dry, raw skin left over from too many days of blowing runny noses. It truly is my salvation this winter with the back to back illness in this household. Oh yeah, and I use it on the dry, painful cuticles too. It's been around for over 100 years, made by the same family. Check it out at:
