3 Reasons To Shop For Makeup At Target 👀🌱💲

We live in the world of information, and have easy access to any information we desire. If I read about a place, an author, even a spice that I am not familiar with, I am googling for information right away. When it comes to shopping, comparing prices is easy, without having to sacrifice quality.

As consumers we have access to many sources, local and international, and retailers are aware that the quality, design, and pricing of their products are consistently being reviewed and talked about in social media.

I consider myself well aware of my needs and my families needs, and bargain shopping is what I am good at, for almost everything from plants, food, clothing, and other everyday wants & needs. I don’t sacrifice quality when I cook, or when I buy makeup or anything we use on our skin, even if I have to read pages of information on its ingredients.

This brings me to my 3 reasons for shopping from Target. 1- A large collection.

2- Clean ( less preservative) makeup

3- pricing

Makeup is of course not a necessity, but most of us like me, use it daily, and love to have an up to date, trendy collection to choose from. Target has a great makeup collection that covers every age, every skin type, and every skin color. They even have how to videos on their site, on how to use “the new and trendy makeup”.

Investing In Things That Add To Our Happiness & Comfort🏡💕

Picking flowers during classroom breaks☺️

After a year spend indoors, we all have come to realized if our homes are comfortable and well furnished and well equipped to keeps us happy. Last year I woke up every day, running around trying to make studying on zoom comfortable and more private. Tried to cook without making too much noise, and tried to entertain little ones without using electronics. Buying groceries on timely manner, so I didn’t have to wait for milk for 4 days, and manage to prepare and serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner, dictated by school and meeting hours.

Going outdoors became a necessary chore. Our eyes needed a break, we needed a break from each other, and we needed fresh air for our physical and mental health. Our backyard turned into a playground, and front yard was private enough to set up chairs for reading, and snacking outdoors.

I was happy to notice that I had the basics to make our home a playground, a school, an office, and my kitchen equipped to cook and bake, without delays or extra stress.

My believe in creating a home based on the most important fact “ Invest In Things That Make Us Happy & Comfortable” became more obvious. A manageable garden, with flower pots that can be moved indoors, a living room with soft large pillows for napping and playing game boards on the floor. A kitchen ready to prepare and store large platters for snacks, and movie night cheese trays. A patio and a porch for little ones to play, learn gardening, and pick flowers, with comfortable chairs and small tables to hold books, and a bubble machine.

I learned more, and was much more aware of my families comfort and productivity, but what was interesting to learn was the fact that when staying together meant staying healthy, keeping each other happy became an easy task.

Your Own Style 😎

Scarfs

I pay attention to details, and respect any one that takes the time to create details in anything and everything. Small accent pieces in decorating, small plants tucked in large flower pots for color and texture, small images of birds, and trees in a painting, and small accessories added to the everyday wardrobe.

I contribute the importance of details, to the fact that they create a distinct look, a look apart from all the other homogenized, and pre packaged things! Details create a unique style, a unique look, created by subtle difference that we can call our own style.

To think of adding details such as accessories to everyday wardrobe is not a difficult task, but adding a belt, a scarf, a pair of gloves might require, a very organized closet, more time to plan, and more time to get dressed. The final look when all put together, ready for the day, is a unique style created by unique style by adding accessories for more color, layers, and texture.

I have put together a video on different stylish, and practical ways we can add scarfs to our everyday wardrobe. I hope you enjoy the video, and also subscribe to our YouTube channel. Thank you so much☺️

Not giving up on lavender plants🪴

Last years beautiful French lavender blooms

One of the main rules of gardening is to know your zone for planting. Meaning, you won’t waste your money and hard physical work of digging, planting, fertilizing for the wrong plant. Sometimes as most of you might know a perennial plant such as lavenders might not survive the winter freeze and become an annual.

This is my dilemma with lavender plants. They need more attention and no additional watering since we already have too much rain, but when they finally spread their roots and get situated they are beautiful and full of buds the entire summer season. One of my absolute favorite plants, and I take every advantage when they bloom. I take videos, photos and collect lavender buds in sachets for my dresser drawers, also gifts to my family members. I love their color, shape and their heavenly clean, calming scent.

This year I decided to plant a circle of lavender plants around a bird bath close to my other gardens. Creating a focal point and a more designated area that I can pay more attention to and protect in winter time. So this past weekend I found a beautiful bird bath, and I am starting plans to remove the grass and creat a round garden.

In few days another trip to the garden center to purchase lavender plants. I am thinking a hardier variety called “Lavender Phenomenal”. Stay tuned🌸👍

Spring Colors & Floral Designs☘️for Home🌷

Soft blue accent pillows

Long, cold, colorless winter has turned into blooms popping through the green grass and tree branches. Announcing we are awake, and ready to go.

As much as I love and live for color, and mild temperatures for gardening, spring is not my favorite season. Unfortunately the suffering from allergies, and the haze created by floating pollen makes everyday in spring sheltering indoors, and spending mornings indoors when the pollen count is the highest. Giving me plenty of time to put away wooly winter blankets, and decorating with floral pattern and pastel colors. I took pictures of some beautiful pieces I ran into while shopping. They are easy inexpensive accent pieces that change any room to spring and inspire you to make simple changes. They certainly inspired me as I stay indoors, skipping the pollen haze.

These pillows are spring🌷🌸

Decorating for spring🌻🐝

Thinking🌸 spring colors💕

By March I am ready to open the windows, and start planting. But almost every year, I have to wait till the end of May for airing our house and walking into my garden. I have learned my lessen, fooled with few days of mild temperatures and pure sunshine in mid March, just to end up pulling sweaters out of drawers, and covering my new plants with bed sheets.🥺

For now to ease the itch for spring weather, I surround myself with potted daffodils, tulips, and colors of spring. Accent pieces in pinks, blues, glass and crystal, looking ahead to a gorgeous spring🌻🐝

Keeping my eyes wide open for the cherry trees and redbud trees to burst in color. Any day now!!! (fingers crossed😆)
