A Great Find: Nature’s Bounty’s E Cream

Thursday, February 4th, 2016

A couple of weeks ago Kimberly (sissy in law) gave me this moisturizer to try. I’d been complaining that my neck was looking wrinkly, and I didn’t want use pricer lotion on my neck, different story for my face! (Now that I’m typing this out, that’s not great reasoning. Who wants a nice wrinkle-free face and a saggy neck?!)


Anyway she let me in on her little secret, of Nature’s Bounty’s E Cream, and since she is one of the best aging ladies I know, I was eager to give it a try!

Well absolutely no complaints. It’s rich, smells lovely and does the job beautifully, once I found out the price I couldn’t wait to share it with you all, a whopping $3.99 at Walgreens (apparently BOGO right now, see HERE).

I’m not thinking I’ll give up on my beloved Clinique yet, but I’ve loved adding this to my nightly routine, especially in these frindgid temperatures!

What winter beauty secrets do you ladies have, do share!

We are always on the hunt for the perfect writing pen and are happy to spend a few dollars here and there to try out new contenders.

We found these Ultrafine pens at the dollar tree, all three for one dollar!

Time to stock up!

Holler Dollar: Teeny Tiny Elastics

Thursday, August 13th, 2015

I have only one purpose in mind when doing my hair every day… to deter those little fingers from pulling it all day long.

Two little pieces pulled back with teeny tiny elastic does the trick nicely.

500 elastics for a dollar at the Dollar Tree is so much cheaper than anywhere else.

They will come in handy when Jane gets enough hair for pigtails too!

New Posterboard Abstract Artwork

Monday, August 10th, 2015

I love everything about abstract art. Simple, bold and graphic.

I’ve been eyeing several large pieces lately but they’ve been way out of my budget so I asked the artiste of the family, Sarah to create a copycat version.

Look what she whipped up!

You are never going to believe how little this cost to put together!

We used poster boards and brushes from the Dollar Tree,

basic black craft paint and these huge frames from Ikea that were $17.99 each (HERE)

Sarah literally brushed few strokes and we popped them into frames.

If you like the look of abstract art, spend five minutes and see what you can create!
