I'M CRUSHING!!!

No, I’m not lying under some huge boulder being crushed to smithereens...but I am CRUSHING on some new things I thought I’d share with you.  Life can sometimes grow dull and so it’s fun and maybe even “necessary” to make some new discoveries now and then.                                                                                               
  
                                                                    
#1 THE COTTAGE FAIRY
This is a youtube channel I discovered not long ago, and I absolutely adore it.  The young woman who is the creator is simply lovely.   “Paola Merrill is an artist, teacher and YouTube creator known as The Cottage Fairy. Merrill shares glimpses of her rural idyll in Northeastern Washington State  and chronicles the simple things: her bunny Mr. Darcy, drying wild flowers and catching the sun rising over the mountains.”  You can read more about her and her amazing move from the city to a very rural area  HERE   and, of course, you can search for her on youtube.  The scenery and music along with her captivating voice are so soothing and almost magical.

 

 #2  COVER GIRL FOUNDATION

Yes, Cover Girl!  I haven’t worn their foundation since high school but decided to try this one after watching yet another youtube video....you need to watch this one: RISA DOES MAKEUP

The creator of this channel is a veteran make-up artist who has taught me a good many beauty tricks (thank you, Risa, I need all the help I can get!)  She has used just about every makeup brand out there and yet she loves this foundation.  I decided to try it, and I am sooo glad I did.  I got mine at Wal-Mart for $10.49.



#3  THREDUP.COM

Now if you are squeamish or turned off by wearing second-hand clothes, you can skip this one.  My 14 yr. old granddaughter has turned me onto the idea of thrift shopping for clothes.  She and all her buddies say it’s the new way to shop.  You not only save money but you help the environment.  Thredup takes a little patience as there is SO VERY MUCH to look at, but you can narrow down your search.  I have also tried their Goody Boxes.  I’ve had a little luck with that, but it’s just plain fun.  Go to the site and read about it or try this youtube video.


#4 MINT MONGOOSE

This is a jewelry subscription.  I never knew there were so many BOX SUBSCRIPTIONS.  I subscribed to this one for 3 months and so far I have really loved the jewelry I’ve received.  You can watch this video to find out more. This youtube channel is called GEORGIA SUNSHINE and she unveils many different box subscriptions.  Wish I could afford all of them.  It’s just fun to receive a SURPRISE box now and then.  I also subscribed for a short time to SELFY-BOX which is makeup and skincare.  I really like it too, but it’s a little expensive and I used only about half the things I received.



 #5 FUDGE MINT COOKIES

Do you like the Girl Scout THIN MINT COOKIES?  If you do, then trot on over (well, maybe you should drive) to your nearest DOLLAR TREE and look for their Fundge Mint cookies.  Y’all, they taste the same!  And they are only $1 for 2 sleeves.  I put them in the freezer and nibble on a couple when I hear them calling.  (Your goodies do call to you, don’t they?)



#6  DR. PEPPER with CREAM SODA

I know...doesn't sound good but IT IS!  I'm a Dr. Pepper girl but the shot of cream soda just adds some pizzazz!  


 

I love trying new things...and love it even more when I like them!  My “word of the year” is ADVENTURE and since I can’t seem to go on too many adventures quite yet, I guess making new discoveries will have to do. 

 

What are you CRUSHING on these days that you think I’d like to try?

  1. Wow, a lot of interesting stuff there!! Thank you for all of these good tips. I may have to check these out. I have always used Covergirl clean makeup...it's the inexpensive liquid in a little glass bottle, and it works for me just fine. I enjoy Thrift Store shopping, and once in a while I find some good buys in clothing, but I mostly like to look for vintage dishes...tea cups and plates and such. They are fun to use every day for a change after using the same old dishes for 50 years. LOL. And I rarely pay more than $1.00 a piece for them, so if they break it's not a big deal. This was fun today and entertaining. I will check out the videos...

  2. Thank you for sharing. I love the thin mint cookies and will certainly give these a try. I have been using Clinique for years but it is pricey, hmmmm perhaps this brand will work. My husband likes Dr. Pepper but not me:) I love trying new things! Today my new thing is hiring someone to take care of our pool:) Enjoy your day dear friend. HUGS!

    1. So glad you came by. I have been thinking of you so much in recent weeks. I had an aunt who had 12 children. They lost a sister about 2 years ago and now will be losing another in the next few days it seems. They are all having a hard time, but losing so many siblings in such a short period of time like you is just heart breaking. Hope you found a good pool guy!

  3. The Cottage Fairy sounds delightful!!!

    I could use a foundation, but don't know how to apply one. Should look at this!

    Oh yes, second hand clothes have been a rage, for some time. -smile-

    My husband has liked Dr. Pepper for years. Should see if we can get some of this, and see if he likes it.

    Love your Mind Set... To try new things!!!
    It fits, with the Healthy Idea, of not letting this China/Covid Pandemic, get us *down*!!!!! And boy, do we need such!!!!

    1. So glad you stopped by. Advice...apply liquid foundation using a makeup sponge. Either put "a little" at a time on the sponge and buff in...or you can use your fingers to dab on face and then buff out with sponge. The secret is blend, blend, blend and a sponge is great for that:) You can do it!!!

  4. I haven't used foundation in a long time. Working in surgery all those years wearing a mask I found more makeup on the mask than me! Now we've been mask wearing again! I have found some good moisturizers and other cosmetics at the dollar store that I like. I'm loving Aldi chicken patties in the red bag in their freezer section. Taste just like chick filet's...so good! Have a good week!

    1. Sure wish we had an Aldi around here but not sure they are in GA. The chicken patties sound awesome!!

  6. HAHA....I crush on things (more like getting additive) and I go over board with it, then I am tired and get on something else. HAHA...Cover Girl, I have not worn since I was a teen and if you are adding up numbers, that was FOREVER ago!! I remember it had an orange tint to it when I used it. I found one recently that I love, and yet I can't think of the name and I am not getting up now to go look (oh my). I have a prob buying clothes on line. I have to see, feel, and check out what I want in real time. I have to be there. Second hand clothes don't bother me, I have a washer (I am on a roll today). My mom loved Goodwill and she was always buying me cloths from there. She would see something that she thought was me and she would bring it home, wash it and give it to me. I draw a line at underware and bathing suits though. I hardly ever buy a soft drink, if I do, I am sick and I crave it.

    1. Yes, you are on a roll...made me smile!!! I used that Cover Girl in high school too. I also have a problem buying clothes...online AND in store! Just can't find petites like I used to and clothes now just don't look that great to me. Guess I've gotten picky in my old age!

  8. WOW I've got to try those cookies (yes treats call to me ... by name ... loudly) and the Dr. Pepper with Cream Soda ... I hope they have diet! I'm getting interested in ThredUp and hope to make a purchase soon. I am crushing on my new little Dash waffle maker ... I make low-carb chaffles (one egg, two tablespoons almond flour, and 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella, mixed, makes two chaffles) and have them with sugar-free syrup. Extremely delicious! Happy Easter! xoxo

    1. I've had some good luck with Thredup but also had to do some returns. Bad thing about returns is that you have to pay a restocking fee...think it's $1.99. Most of the time I don't spend much so if I don't really like it or it doesn't fit I donate it:)

  12. I Used Dr Aziba Product to solve my Penis Growth problem of 3.8 inches to 9.0 Inches in Less than Seven Days.
    Two hours after starting the Product, I began to feel its results. My penis was tingling (but it did not hurt), and little by little it was growing. Three days later, it already measured 6.6 inches. I had to do absolutely nothing because it was completely automatic. Six days later, I had gained one more Eight inch. The result: 8.1 inches! I began to feel more confident as I slept with my Girlfriend, who is always willing to do the dirty. In the end, she told me a lot has changed in me and i now gives her so much orgasms in half an hour. i'm recommending you with similar problem to Get In Contact with Doctod Aziba via Email: Priestazibasolutioncenter@gmail.com & WhatsApp: +2348100368288

I went to see a Doctor and many Blood Tests were done on me. My Doctor told me that i have HSV 1&2 and there’s no cure for HSV 1&2. I felt bad, I went online searching for a possible cure for HSV 1&2, I saw a post of milton buckler, a herbal Dr called Dr Abiola cured him from HSV 1 . I contacted him and told him how I’m feeling and he said his herbal medicine can cure me. He sent me the medicine via DHL delivery service and I received the medicine some days after he sent it, i took the medicine as prescribed by him. for 14days Before the completion of the medication the symptoms stopped. I went to the Doctor and carried out another blood test, surprisingly I was Negative.

  18. My name is Thomas White, from United states, i have been Herpes positive and it is just like been through hell; well special thanks to God almighty for using Dr Twaha, the greatest Herbal doctor in curing my herpes disease. I was diagnosed of this disease in the year 2004. Although I was taking my medications I was not myself. Until a few weeks ago. My friend came to me and told me that he saw many testimonies on how Dr. Twaha  cured people Herpes disease. Although I never believe in herbs, I said to myself "seeing is believing" I took his name and searched it on GOOGLE, I saw many testimonies myself. Quickly, I copied his email: drlregbeyen10000@gmail.com I emailed him, he gave me a form to fill which I did, then he sent me a message  and told me that he required some items in which he will use in preparing the cure for me and he told me that it will cost me some money which i sent to him because I need the cure urgent,  He bought the items and prepared a cure for me, then he sent the parcel to me through courier delivery service. I paid the courier services, I got my parcel, it was a bottle of ointment as described by Dr,Twaha After taking the ointment he told me to do, the herpes test and the result came out negative. Quickly I messaged him and told him what happened he congratulated me. I promised to tell the world about him.
