Peacock Chic for Mardi Gras

With Mardi Gras being tomorrow, I thought I'd put up a look that nobody would really wear, unless they will be in New Orleans in the quarter...and then again, maybe not, lol. But it's still fun to create a fun look like this:)

 I created this look about two months ago. I wanted to do an intricate design and asked my husband to give me an idea to be inspired by, and he said, "Peacock." I looked up some photos for inspiration and voila! (Today my husband named this look Peacock Chic, lol)

It wasn't until about a month ago that I realized this makeup could also work for Mardi Gras.
Enjoy the photos and eat some King cake for me and you!

Doesn't this remind you of a jester's hat?

And one cheesy photo in front of this trumpet

Trumpet..Jazz...New Orleans...Mardi Gras...Get it?

I'll be celebrating Mardi Gras at a staff meeting tomorrow, gumbo and all. My boss is from New Orleans, so you know it's going to be live tomorrow! lol

Do you have any plans to celebrate Mardi Gras?

Also, if you want me to do a tutorial on this extravagant look, say so in the comments below!

À Bientôt!

Happy Hallmark Day! ;)

Ok, I love holidays, but you have to admit that most of them have been hyped up by the industry to increase consumer spending...duh! Lol

Nonetheless, I decided to have an inexpensive VDay doin something I would have done on any other day of the year. I made chocolate covered strawberries for my fam:) (shown above)

Here's me enjoying them.....

I made some decorated sugar cookies, but they came out crazy! Spread out all over the place. I'll get 'em right next time.

I hope not only your Valentine's Day, but every day is filled with love and joy:)

Do you have a love/hate relationship with VDay? 

Well, À Bientôt, my loves...

Clutter FREE Me Day 13: Must Have Items In Your Car

As I traveled in my car more, I realized all the things I didn't have in my car. There's nothing worst than being on the highway, trying to make good time, then something happens where you have to stop. It makes it even worse when you had that item at home, but didn't bring it with you, now you have to stop, waste time and money! I guess you can tell this bothers me:) So, I want to make sure this never happesn to you again.

You'll be prepared for anything that happens on the road with these items:

To take care of sticky hands:
Baby wipes/anti-bacterial wipes

To clean hands after you pump gas and before you eat:
Hand sanitizer

For emergency cutting: :)

For sneezes:

To clean up spills:
Paper towels

To use under the hood:
Jug of water

I feel like I'm missing something.....
What make-your-life-easier items do you keep in your car?

A Bientot.....
