Hope you had a nice week! What are you up to this weekend? Even though we are already in the second week of September, the weather continues to be warm & the sun is shining brightly, so let’s try to stretch summer a few more days! If you go to the beach….try to touch the water and get your feet wet! It feels amazing! I started the weekend with dinner out last night with the hubby. Today, I’m heading to a baby shower  and looking forward to time with friends, and all the aaahs & oooohs when the gifts are opened, of course! Here are a few links from the internet: some cute, some about beauty, tips, yummy food, and mostly just fun! Hope you like them and they make you smile!

Have a wonderful weekend….hugs,

Funny thoughts shared by a mom of three, made me laugh!

Tis’ the season: Pumpkin Spice Latte Recipe – you can make at home, looks delicious!

The Velvet Berry Lip: how to apply it correctly – going to get one for the season. It’s beautiful & intense!

If you like espresso: the Handpresso, a travel-sized espresso maker. Nice, you can get your coffee fix even when you travel!
