Recently Purchased


1. Moonstone.
When I was in Salem for Halloween, I was eager to find a piece of jewelry that I could take home as a souvenir/keepsake. I found an eye-catching moonstone ring at one of the New Age shops but the price was a bit too steep to justify. Instead, I searched on eBay for an equally beautiful but less costly alternative. It's not exactly the same as getting it while away but I'll still associate the gem with my trip. I actually found a rock/stone in the town square that I'm going to take to a jeweler to see if I can have something custom made. One of the shop keepers in Salem identified it for me as Labradorite. It supposedly promotes psychic ability and helps foster strength and change.

2. Philosophy Kiss Me Exfoliating Lip Scrub.
I like to wear darker lipsticks and reds in the fall/winter. Exfoliating is a must. Love this product. Not only does it leave my lips smooth but it tastes excellent and smells like Christmas (peppermint!).

3. Dior Addict 2 Perfume.
I've had this fragrance in my collection for quite a few years but recently needed to replenish my bottle. It's one of my favorite scents.

4. Shiseido Benefiance Wrinkle Resist 24 Enriched Softener.
I've been loving this in replacement of a traditional toner. It leaves my skin feeling so soft and looking radiant. It's the perfect prep for moisturizing cream.

5 & 6. Red Wine and Candles.
I love this combination all year 'round but especially when the weather starts to get cooler. I love snuggling up at night with these two cozy favorites and a good movie or book. It's the little things in life.

7. A New Car! Finally!
Well, "new" to me! I've wanted this car (black/tan Lexus SC 430) since I was a freshman in college. I chose it over another brand new vehicle. I don't care that it's 10 years old. It's been my dream for a decade. Better late than never. She's beautiful!

Now Playing: "Let Her Go" by Passenger
