I feel a little bit like Dorthy from the Wizard of Oz…”There’s no place like home!!!” We’ve been trying to adjust from our recent trip to Palm Springs, and it has been a challenge. We went from 114-degree weather to barely 60-degree weather, and the three-hour time change kicked us in the rear.

Joe swears he isn’t going to turn back the clock once the time changes in November. So, last night he said, “I think I’m going to be; it’s already after 10 o’clock.” I said, “it’s only a little after 9; you’re going to bed too early. He looked at his watch, and I could see he was getting ready to correct me, so I said, “well, that’s what time it will be in November.” Haha! I think he might have called me a few names, but I found it hilarious.

Be sure to scroll all the way to the end to hear about a couple of giveaways!

Fall is in the air

Are you ready for fall? Do you decorate for fall, Halloween, or Thanksgiving? When the kids were small, I decorated for Halloween with spiders, skeletons, spell books, and potion bottles. Ashleigh and Joseph are both born in October, so we had Halloween-themed birthday parties. Now, two of my grandchildren are October babies, so they have a big Halloween/Birthday celebration which is always a lot of fun.

This week, my DIL and I went shopping for some fall decorations at Target, Home Goods, and TJMaxx. This type of decor isn’t something that I sink a lot of money in, especially since I like to change it out every few years. Here is a tip when shopping at stores like Big Lots, Walmart, Target, TJMaxx, etc.; pick up the item and try to hold it against a plain background. Choose a wall or a solid color dress and look at the item. You’ll get a better idea of how the item will look in your home. If the item looks cheap, put it back, but if it looks nice against the solid background, it’ll look nice in your home.

Fall decorations can stay up until the Christmas tree comes out, so I like that I only have to decorate once. Kayla has small children, so she bought a few things for Halloween decor:

Since I don’t have small children in the house, I bought fall decor:

Fashions That Arrived This Week

I came home from Palm Springs with packages up to my eyeballs. There are so many cute things I need to try on and take photos for you, but I’ve got to get other items shown first. So, here is an early preview so you can grab these before they sell out.

Hair Color

A lot of you have messaged me about my hair color. I’ve shared the formula on FB and IG, but I’ve never posted it here. So, today, I’m changing that.

This is gibberish to me, but I’m sure your hairdresser would understand all of this.

Giveaways and Skincare

Last week I announced the winner of my mini regimen giveaway, but so far, Susan Vilardo hasn’t responded to my emails. I’ve messaged her again and will give her a few more days, but if I don’t hear from her soon, I’ll do another drawing.
