Favorite New Beauty Product

I received an order earlier this week that I had placed from Sephora online. I wasn't super excited to receive it because I didn't think I had ordered anything exciting. I had just ordered replacement stuff like eye makeup remover and a new brush for my clarisonic. I originally was placing the order because there was a special that I could receive a sample size of a new Laura Mercier shine free face setting powder if I did an online order. Once I got online, I noticed that if you spent $50 then you got free shipping (this is genious by the way and all online stores should do this because I will ALWAYS spend more than planned to get free shipping).

In an effort to spend $50, but not too much over that amount, I decided to take the plunge and buy some new nice tweezers. All of mine had become so dull that I had a total eyebrow situation going on! I had often seen Tweezerman tweezers rated high on all the beauty tools list, but they were a little expensive for tweezers and I always skipped it. I decided that really, when you add up all the cheaper tweezers I buy, I could have already bought a pair.

Let me tell you about Tweezerman... They are beyond fabulous! I literally heard angels sing when I started to use them just like when I used the PedEgg for the first time. I knew my life had changed for the better! Even more exciting, on their little plastic case it says that if you destroy a pair (how this would happen, I'm not sure, but I'm imagining Lola involved in my scenario) they will replace them for half the cost of a new pair, if they become dull, they will sharpen for free and if you need the tips replaced, they will do that for $5!



I of course bought this pink set of tweezerstweezer pink


They also have black, red and silver. If you want a print, Sephora has these cute little Safari ones

They usually cost $5 more because of their print I guess, but they are on sale for the same price as the solid color ones.



Even if you don't think you need new tweezers, I bet that you don't realize how much you really NEED Tweezerman in your life. Tweezerman is a little piece of magic and you should get some immediately!

I love tweezerman for a different reason. I use the nail clippers and LOVE them. Best nail clippers in history. I may have to try the tweezers.
Oh man, I just posted a blog post on Kelly's Korner about those things...they rule! I bought a pair of pink polka dots :)

Found you on Nashville Nest, and I like your place! I hope you come visit One Fine Wire!

I agree, Tweezerman is the way to go. Any other tweezer and you are just wasting your money. I've been using the same tweezerman tweezer for over 10 years.

Swiss Oatmeal {Copy Cat Recipe}

I'm obsessed with Swiss Oatmeal.  I particularly love  Corner Bakery's Swiss Oatmeal.  If you are not familiar with Swiss Oatmeal, it is a cold oatmeal cereal with fruit and nuts.

I've had a similar recipe for years, but it was only similar.  It wasn't close enough for my liking.  So I finally set out into the land of Pinterest to find a recipe that was a good Copy Cat.  I found a few, combined them and came up with what I think is a very close Copy Cat Recipe of Corner Bakery's Swiss Oatmeal.

Here's what I do (note, this recipe is really just pictures, because I don't really have measurements for these things.  The photos aren't great, but it's easier if I show you what I do)...

Here's the Phase 1ingredients... Milk Honey Yogurt (I use a vanilla greek yogurt) Oats (old fashioned, not quick...you probably could do steel cut too)  I've simplified this to where you only need a bowl and a spoon for Phase 1 because I use my yogurt cup as a meas…

It's all about the dress...

I mean I guess it's really all about getting married, but come on, you always anticipate the dress right?  Well holy moly folks!  Today a big secret was released to the press.  No, we still don't know which dress or tiara Kate will be wearing, but we heard for the first time that Princess Diana had a back-up dress!  Here are some of the pictures and sketches...

And you know what?  I like the back-up dress better than the one she wore!  I know, I know.  I'm going to get blasted for saying that, but I'll just confess it right now... My name is Kara and I've never thought Princess Diana's dress was all that and a bag of chips.  Nope.  Not my favorite Royal Wedding Dress by any stretch of the imagination.  What is my favorite?  Probably the one that Sarah Ferguson wore when she married Andrew...
It had beautiful beading and stitching throughout.  Also on the train it had an "A&quo…

Pumpkins, Gourds & Flowers, oh my!

Yesterday, I went to the Dallas Arboretum.  Lisa, Jennifer, and I went as my birthday outing.  We got a late start due to some court delays, so we stopped for lunch first.  I needed some make-up too, so we went to Neimans.  We ogled some purses, had lunch, I got some make-up and then we headed out to the arboretum (in the rain).

It was raining pretty good on the way over, but luckily, we only needed umbrellas for a few minutes.  Thankfully the sun never came out, because it was so humid, I'm pretty sure we would have melted. 




First, we made our way toward the Pumpkin Village...

I love how they made garland out of the mini-pumpkins...






These rose bushes were just stunning!  The roses on each bush varied in color from a coral, to a blush, to a purple hue...
It was Fall at the arboretum, and pumpkins, gourds, and mums are a large part of the visit.  However, they also have a Chihuly art exhibition going on.  I took so many pictures, I HAVE to make that it's whole separate post.  …
