It’s The Little Things: Chubby Sticks Eyeshadows

I have all ready posted about my love for Clinique’s Chubby Stick for lips. In fact, I just used up a full stick and have had to open a new one.


Well, in November I found out that Clinique makes a Chubby Stick Eyeshadow. I ordered two of them. One to use as a base and the other to use as a definer.


I chose Bountiful Beige as my base.



And Fuller Fudge for my “pop.”

The bountiful beige is a bit too light for me. I do not know if I would recommend it to someone as fair as myself. But the Fuller Fudge is fantastic. It goes on smoothly and blends easily. You just simply rub the stick on your eyelid like a giant crayon.

I find putting makeup on tedious. And to be quite honest, I am not great at it. Often my friends are blending in my foundation for me. Perfection has never been my angle.

But fun has.

I find this product to be enticing enough to use on a daily basis. It is a different enough product that I get excited about using it. So far I have not gotten bored with it.


My daughter loved mine, so Santa brought her one of her own in her stocking. She got the color Curvaceous Coal. Ha! I guess she did get coal in her stocking!

Have you tried these? What did you think?

It’s The Little Things: Halloween Goody Bags


It’s here! Happy Halloween! Every year I stay up late and make goody bags for the trick-or-treaters. I have done this every year since I have lived on my own. I told you, I like Halloween.


When I first started making the goody bags with my family, we would gather around and make them together. I have such fond memories of this. I thought it was a good time. However, for the last two years, I have been on my own. Nobody wants any part of doing the goody bags with me. Aw, well. I still think it is fun.



This year I made 45 bags. When we first moved to our current home, I made 125. And I almost ran out. But ten years later, the kids in the neighborhood are slowly growing up. I only had 19 trick-or-treaters last year. It was incredibly sad.



I made my goody bags last night. Inside each one was a ghost eraser, a pumpkin crayon ring, a plastic witch finger, a full sized candy bar and a couple of pieces of small candy. Witch fingers crossed we get more trick-or-treaters this year! I bought tons of extra candy just in case.

It’s the little things: Halloween goody bags made with cheer!

What are your plans today? How many trick-or-treaters do you usually get? And what is your favorite Halloween candy this year? Mine is Butterfingers.
