Product Review and a little TMI....

Happy Monday Lovelies! I wanted to share a little product review with you. And just to give you a little disclaimer, I have really sensitive skin, always have and always will.

So I finally jumped on the Proactive band wagon because I've been having really bad breakouts lately. Here's the TMI part, I think it might be due to switching birth control pills. Long story but it wasn't my choice it was a stupid mistake that my nurse practitioner made and I decided to go with it because I'm not quite ready for a little downtown southern baby yet. ; >

Little background info on me, as I said before I have really sensitive skin and I've tried using other face washes before but nothing has ever worked. So my beauty cleaning routine is usually washing my face in the moring with a rag and warm water. I know, gasp, that's so bad for my skin!!! But seriously anything else seems to irritate it even more.

So this brings me to the Proactive review, I decided to give it a go since nothing else has really worked for me. I've been using it for about 2 weeks and honestley, I think I've broken out even more than before. I'm going to keep using it and see if maybe it will start to clear up but so far no good. : (

Has anyone else had a good or bad experience with Proactive?

Santa Baby! I have my list ready!

I think I've been a pretty good girl all year, so here's my wish list that you or hubby can get me. You guys can talk it over and decide who wants to get me what ; )

(all images from google images)

Black or Chocolate Uggs!!! I got my light tan one's last year and I L.O.V.E them dearly!!! They are by far the most comfortable shoes I own and would love some more : )

The Pioneer Woman cookbook!!! I <3 id="BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5409540831264618546" style="DISPLAY: block; MARGIN: 0px auto 10px; WIDTH: 305px; CURSOR: hand; HEIGHT: 366px; TEXT-ALIGN: center" alt="" src="" border="0">Viva La Juicy Perfume! This stuff smells divine!!! I had 2 or 3 samples and used them up very quickly!

Spa treatment, I don't need a whole day just a massage or a facial will do!

I'm a scarf finatic, you can actually find me in a scarf all year long, I just love them! They're the perfect accessory and I've wanted an actual Love Quotes Scarf for the longest time!
Yes, you're seeing that right, I want a kitty cat too! :)

Rain Boots! With all of the rain we've been having in our area lately I definitely need some rain boots in my closet!!

Martha Stewart Dutch Oven in either color! ; >

And the Michael Kor's Gold Bracelet Watch!!! Love it!! And I don't have a gold watch, so it would be practical too!

That's not too much right???? ; )

So I have to start with my Home Decorating Blog that I've recently been obsessed with!!! I just can't get enough of her super cute ideas!!!

THRIFTY DECOR CHICK She's just great and she has so many unbelievable and easy decorating ideas!!! I get so inspired when I go to her blog and I love browsing through her old holiday archives!!

So there's my first decorating blog, go and check her out, I promise you won't be dissapointed!

Today I'm doing my Thanksgiving shopping!! What's on my menu?

~Turkey with White Truffle Butter (Barefoot Contessa)~

~Stuffing with Suasage and Apple (Barefoot Contessa)~

~Butterbeans with Basil (my sweet Grandmama)~

~Mashed Potatoes (your's truly ; >)~

Keeping it simple ya'll!

Hubby and I are going to some friends house tonight for an early Thanksgiving dinner and I'm taking Paula Deen's Brie en Croute!!!

If you're ever looking for an easy appetizer to take to friends this is it!! And I always get compliments on it!

You'll need:

Puff Pastry

Round Brie

1/2 cup Walnuts

1/4 cup of brown sugar

1 tablespoon butter

1 egg for brushing on top of puff pastry

Just melt the butter and throw the walnuts into the pan and cook over medium heat for 1-2 minutes then add the brown sugar and caramalize a bit. Spread the puff pastry out and place the brie in the center and pour the walnut and brown sugar mixture over the top and fold the pastry up on the top and pinch to close. Now take your beaten egg and brush over the top of the pastry and the sides for a nice browned top. Put in baking dish in a 375 degree oven for about 20 minutes and then take out and serve with crackers! SO GOOOODD!!!

I'll be back soon friends with another decorating blog that I love and I have some awards to give out!! : )

Hello There, I'm back! (again)

I have been really really rediculously bad at blogging lately! I'm so ashamed of myself! I've been looking at a lot of blogs though and my latest obsession is blogs that focus on decorating! Love love love them, I just can't get enough! I'm going to add a house/decorating blogs list on my sidebar very soon to show some of my favs that I've found!

But for now I want to show you some of what I did today!

Had to show you my beautiful glasses that I just unpacked two nights ago!! That would be some good citrus green tea that I'm sipping, YUM! (and just finished watching Family Man, love that movie)

And this is the extent of my Thanksgiving decorations right now! I really want to be more festive than this but I don't know if it's going to happen because I'm getting too focused on Christmas!!!!

And here are a few pics from Halloween! We decorated our house with some fun decorations that were given to us from my brother and his girlfriend as a house warming gift! :)

Hubby thought the tiki torches would give a more scary ambiance and get more kids to come our way.....we're in the end of a culdesac so we ended up getting about 25 kids, I was secretly hoping for more.....oh well!

Hubby and me attempting to get artistic and taking a pic of our skeleton's shadow and shrunken head! : )

How awesome was the full moon on Halloween!! Loved it!!!

Alright friends, that's me back! I'm going to make an effort to blog more regularly, I promise!!! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!!!!!
