Coming to you from my Grandmom’s house in sunny and warm Miami, Florida. We’re just down for a long weekend to visit my family and partake in some delightful Cuban food. I can’t wait to have some yucca and plantains tonight!
This week’s Boondoggle has some of my favorite links, a quote that seemed appropriate for all us gals, and my own list of happy things.
Be sure to enter the My Lip Stuff giveaway over at Mythbuster Beauty! Have you tried My Lip Stuff’s balms yet? If not, you’re in for a treat. Over 400 varieties (!!!) and you can read my review if you’d like.
The Cheap Chick employs her wonderous humor and attitude to give us a review of L’Oreal’s new Bare Naturale mascara.

Kelly at Massage Therapy Careers came up with a list of 50 (yes, 50!) health and beauty products that you can make at home. Talk about a splendid way to save some bucks this holiday season!
Quote of the Week:
“Life is full of beauty. Notice it. Notice the bumble bee, the small child, and the smiling faces. Smell the rain, and feel the wind. Live your life to the fullest potential, and fight for your dreams.” ~Ashley Smith
Things that made me smile this week:
Seeing my Grandmom after being away for so long; watching one of the Doctor’s at Mayo react to my newly purple hair (Oh! Wow!) when he walked in the room; old style coffee percolators; finding a pair of designer jeans in my size at the local thrift store for $2 (and they still had the original tags on them!); modifying my Bionic Beauty T shirt into a one-of-a-kind style (see me modeling my new creation & my thrifty jeans find below); and listening to the all female string group, Bond, while driving (best driving music, ever).
So ladies, what made you happy this week? Did you have a grand adventure, live by a certain mantra, find any articles that you loved?
Share your links, thoughts, and happiness!
