I have a serious obsession with MAC! I only use their products. I recently purchased a lip liner, lip gloss, and lipstick while waiting in the JFK airport. But that made me feel like I needed more. So online I went! Today Fedex delivered my goodies! Can’t wait to play with them!

To Resolve or Not Resolve

Every year Millions all over make New Years Resolutions!!! But why? When after a few weeks or a couple of months we forget or slack off on our goals that we were so determined to keep. This year I have set some very simple easy attainable goals. I will share them with you.

These I can keep and at the end of the year I will feel a sense of accomplishment… For I would have listened more, encouraged more, hoped and believed more, trusted more, loved more, worked out more, shown confidence, and so much more…

Give it a try!
