I can't believe that it's finally Friday! I mean, it seems like this week has flown by... partly because the only way I known what day it is, is by the tv shows... i.e. Originals & Blacklist on Monday, Chicago Fire on Tuesday, Forever, SVU, & Chicago PD on Wed.... you get the jist of it. This is most likely due to the hubby being home for the past week. A change to your "schedule" kinda mess ya up, you know?
Anyways... this week hasn't really been that bad...
one | I was offered a spot in my work's upcoming One Stop Shop for my Etsy Shop- basically it's an event at the non-profit that I work for that you can attend, to take a look at the place, and do a little Christmas shopping at one or more of the featured feature 7 shops/businesses (i.e. Mary Kay, Pampered Chef...). Think of the Expo building at your County Fair. Needless to say, I am kinda excited, a little stressed, but overall excited. I have only ever sold my creations in my Etsy shop, and it's going to be amazing to get my items out in the "land of people".
two | Going along with numero uno, I made a new customizable birthstone necklace and bracelet this week. It's now up in the shop! Go take a look! ps... I posed a hefty coupon code in this blog post!
three | I know I have talked about my obsession with charcoal cleansers before.... well I was talking to a girl at work about the benefits, and she offered me her LUSH Dark Angels cleanser mask. She told me she didn't like it, so of course I took it. I tried it, and even though it smells like I am cleaning my face with mud, I LOVE it! Definitely planning on a full blog post and product review rather shortly.
four | This month I'm sponsoring Lauren @ Lot 48, Melissa @ The Rambling Llama, Emily @ Ember Grey, Kay @ The Best of Intentions, Meagan @ All the Joys, & Sarah @ Seriously, Sarah? Do me a solid, and go say hi, k? :)
