Give Me Lip

Sunday playlist: “I Get Around” by Dragonette, “We Started Nothing” by The Ting Tings, “One” by Sky Ferreira, "A Cause Des Garçons" by Yelle.

It’s been a busy Sunday but I finally ushered my boys (son and husband) out of the room and sat down to some serious research/online shopping, which was sparked by my nearly empty tube of M.A.C. lipstick in “Cherish”.  This is my ultimate favorite nude shade. The first time I tried on this color I couldn’t stop smiling. I loved that it made my lips look lush and fuller. So here I am, surfing the net and start wandering. I ended up looking at lip themed items from hair accessories to teacups. Here are my findings: What do you think? Would you give one of these a try?

Ziggy Marley at ACL Live in Austin

For those of us who grew up in Puerto Rico summer is synonymous to Roots Reggae. 
What better way to remember summers past than with Reggae beats from none other than the son of the Legend himself, Ziggy Marley. Here are pics with some of  Ziggy's biggest fans taken at the Moody Theatre in Austin, Texas.

Christmas Shopping for the busy body.

I'm in the Christmas spirit! 

I'd like to share some links to some great websites and Iphone Apps that I'm looking at to complete my Christmas list.

Handmade Soaps and Scrubs - (disclaimer, this is my online store but it's full of goodies!)

Shopping site specializing in gifts of all kinds for men.

Got parents on your list? Help them get organized.

Handmade cuteness for boys and girls

Sites for the Fashion Diva that loves great brands and good deals for her, her family and her home. 

You'll need to sign up for these but membership is free.         They have an App - which I heart  This is the why-didn't-someone-think-of-this-sooner site! Rent designer dresses and accessories at ridiculous prices!

Some other favorite Apps



-PriceGrabber (it's a barcode reader and tells you if the item you scanned is cheaper elsewhere)

-Shop Lucky

Halloween Party

What's a Happy Halloween without a party?

This year's Halloween Party was at our house. Yay!!

These oranges were carved by one of our guests to make small pumpkins,great idea!


My sister, son and I had a blast making the monster cupcakes!
We even dared to make our own marshmallow fondant - we used this recipe which we found online, it was so easy and fun to make, and delicious!

Everyone got to fill their own goodie bag with treats.


The young and young-at-heart had a blast playing pass-the-pumpkin (think hot potato)
and getting mummified (one partner wrapped the other in toilet paper, 1st team to finish won)

Until Next Year!


Me: Why don't we get a Mac laptop?
Husband: I've never had a problem with PC.
Me: But you're having problems now with the network set up!
Husband: That's the only thing! I don't want a Mac, I don't need a Mac!
Me: But you have an Iphone!
Husband: It's not the same thing! It's not a Mac!
My son: Daddy! But I have a Mack!!!

And indeed he does, and that was the end of that. LOL
