Fresh Picks May Ipsy Bag

I always love when it gets to be the middle of the month and I know I will soon find the monthly Ipsy bag in the mail. This morning I checked my email to see when the makeup bag would be delivered and  it said "out for delivery". This made for a happy mail day. 

The bag included:

Too Faced Chocolate Soleil bronzer
Hang Ten Classic Sport SPF 50 sun tan lotion
Eau Thermale Spring Water for sensitive skin
eva~nye Therapy session hair mask
Pacifica natural beauty eyeshadow 

All for just $10!! I can't wait to try out the products. If you'd like to try out Ipsy, you can go here. If you have any questions, I will definitely be happy to answer them in the comments. :) Have a blessed day! :)

What To Include In A Letter

Hello Friends! Today the windows are open, bringing in a beautiful breeze, and I'm enjoying the spring weather we've been blessed with. A friend of mine asked me months ago what are some things I like to include in letters and I decided to write a post and share my ideas with you. :) I love putting together little things to include with the letters I write. Here are a few ideas of what you may find in the letters I send out.  I would love to hear your ideas because I'm always on the lookout for new ones. :)

One letter costs quite a bit these days, so I want to make sure every one is worth mailing and ready to brighten my dear friend's day.

i. Tea is one of my favorites to include because I know all of my pen pals love drinking tea. It's something I always have in our kitchen so I don't have to go out and buy some. :)

ii. Stationery is another great thing; us letter writers can never have enough stationery, am I right? I enjoy swapping notecards and sheets of stationery. I have collected quite a bit over the last so many years. :) Postcards are fun too! They could be from where you live or maybe something unique that you know your pen pal will love.

iii. I also love sending quotes on paint-chips. This is free! I pick up a stack whenever I am able (and my parents need something at Lowe's). I usually will type the quote with my typewriter. :)

iiii. Pictures! I love photography and I recently got the idea to send pictures I've taken.

These are just a few ideas to get you started. More ideas to come. :)

Hello Friends // Incoming Lovelies

Hello friends! I can't believe how much time has gone by since my last post. I'm  sorry for such a long absence. I wasn't expecting a break at all, and honestly didn't want one. I can't tell you how much I have missed sharing. Life has been filled with busyness and time for blogging sadly hasn't been found. I will be back soon, but for today I just wanted to say hello and share the letters found in my mailbox since January. :)

A Little Hello & November's Incoming

I think it's funny how plans seem to never go the way they are well, planned. I had many hopes of every day blogging in December but as every November day passed, life just got busier and busier and around came December and nothing was ready. I absolutely love sharing everything that comes to mind about lettering friends, and while I have many ideas in my head, time somehow seems to slip and days pass so quickly without realizing another month is gone. I hope you can forgive me for my spaced posts and unsure plans, but 2014 is exciting me , and I hope to make this blog something really special. I just want to thank you all so very much for following and being so sweet to me. To conclude this, here are all the lovelies I found in my mailbox in November. {December incoming will be written soon}

Letters from Katie, Sarah, Rae, Lexi, Rachel, Julia, Hope & Liz, and Courtney. Was November good to you too? :)
