My hubby and I didn't go to see the movie "Damage" in theaters, and it's about to come out on DVD soon.
It looks like it could be a good one to rent.
It's got action and wrestling star, "Stone Cold" Steve Austin, in it and it seems like a good story line.
Check out his preview:
I know it's an action/fighting movie and I'm a chick, but I still like a little bit of aggression every now and again - in fact, we watched Rambo last night! LOL
Have you seen Damage? Let us know what Read more [...]
I do a lot of working outside in the yard and gardens in Niagara Falls and in Dallas.
Hot days can fell very long and boring when you don't have any amusement other than weeding, bagging and mowing.
Garden wind chimes (aside from reminding me of the movie "The Hand That Rocks The Cradle"...LOL), make working in the yard much more fun, peaceful and tranquil.
You stop concentrating on all the hard labor you're doing and enjoy their beautiful sounds.
I like the bamboo and shell type Read more [...]
When I think about life, I often see it as simply moving things from one place to another.
What do I mean by that?
When you grocery shop, for example, you're moving the products you purchase from the store to your home.
When you cook it, it's being moved from the packages, is eaten and moved to your stomach.
Then, you move it out of your body, which then moves into the environment.
This, then will cycle back through, helping to create something that grows.
When you clean, you Read more [...]

My mother got me an absolutely stunning royal blue Nicole Lee USA purse last month for my birthday.
It's quite a bit larger than I'm used to, but I've fallen in love with it. (This photo absolutely does not do this purse and it's color justice!)
It's faux croc print, but made of leather and has about 1 dozen half zippers running right up from the bottom to the top of the purse.
It comes complete with two chunky tassles on each end at the top. The top of the purse is smaller than Read more [...]
Well, let's face it! Many of us wear or have to wear glasses...
...this is a daily thing and it should be fun and stylish to do. Why not?
So I thought I'd share with you great and inexpensive eyewear for $ 8 Rx eyeglasses (and up)...
We all need to take care with our finances right now, so that means shopping more intelligently!
I'm going to share with you 3 of My favorite high fashion eyeglasses from Zenni Optical:
Okay, these ones are $29.95 for the lenses & frames (however, Read more [...]
The other night, I had a dream I was in the Outback of Australia with my husband.
We came upon a group of wallabies, one of which was very interested in what we were doing.
This little wallaby approached me and started to want to smell my hair and face and was trying to cuddle me. He was absolutely adorable and had one brown eye and one blue eye.
As humans do, I spoke to it softly in a higher pitch tone telling it how cute it was, and told it my name.
No sooner did I do that, Read more [...]
I'm posting a helpful article from Alexis Gould today to help everyone with their eyeliner application and to let them know what options they have by way of different types of eyeliners.
Personally, I don't wear much eyeliner, only liquid above the upper lashes in everyday life. However, when I'm at a shoot, the make up artists I work with use a wide array of eyeliners and applications. Check it out:

For any of you that really know me, you all know I like a little glitz, bling and dazzle.
I like anything shiny and sparkly! That's for sure! LOL...
Okay, not for everyday or on everything, but you definitely could use a dash of it in your daily wardrobe.
Sometimes that one accessory you use is a piece of Hip Hop Jewelry.
It can accent your look, give you that bling and not be too overwhelming with your outfit.
Now, hip hop bling isn't for everyone, but if you've got a little sass Read more [...]
Have you tried using a Red Box yet?
RedBox is a machine, often found in or outside of your local grocery stores, convenience stores, super stores or drug stores that you can rent newly released and classic movie DVDs for $1 per night.
You have to use your credit card, so be prepared. You scroll through that machine's collection and choose your movie(s) for the night.
You'll receive it out of a little slot in the machine, which is also where you'll return the DVD to.
You will be Read more [...]
Many of us, these days, either choose not to have a traditional bank account, don't have the minimum required deposit for opening an account, especially in this economy, or just simply want to stay away from confusing fee structures and statements.
Did you know they do credit checks at many banks before they'll let you open any kind of account? Okay, so, they want to check me over so I can give them my money to hold...Does that make sense to you?
Maybe you're a teenager who wants to handle Read more [...]
How Can I Keep My Teeth White & Still Drink Tea?

I love to drink tea!!! It's probably my favorite beverage right after water...

Why Does This Work?
Well, it's the tannins in your tea that cause your teeth to discolor. Read more [...]
What I often like to do when I'm getting bored of my choice of bikinis, especially when traveling, is mix and match tops and bottoms.
Just about anything goes by way of fashion at the beach. So, just make sure you have similar materials for the tops and bottoms and you're good to go.
I especially make sure I pick up basic bikinis without patterns in many different colors, so I can mix and match when I get bored.
Try matching a basic top or bottom with a patterned opposite, or pick Read more [...]
I know I do...
