IPSY Bag-July 2020

Not too happy with July’s bag. I hate the palm tree picture that I’ve seen many times before, and the material is cheap. The only thing cute about it is the airplane zipper pull. Let’s hope we have better luck inside.  I received five trial-sized products for the $10 monthly fee. Beauty For Real lip…

I Finally Made It To Marshall’s

It’s been four months since I glided through the doors of Marshall’s. Covid-19, health issues, and a badly sprained ankle have kept me confined inside my house.

CHANGE IS COMING!

The last couple of months have been challenging with all the issues stemming from COVID-19. And then came the murder of George Floyd. Millions of people were shocked, infuriated, and traumatized as they watched an innocent man die…his neck trapped under the knee of an officer of the law. While Floyd cried “I Can’t Breathe,”…
