What Would Marie Antoinette Wear?

Marie Antoinette was the Queen of fashion in her day and age. She loved clothes, and well she set wild trends. But if she was alive today what would Marie Antoinette wear? What would her personal style be today. Here are a few of the items I believe that Marie Antoinette would add to her modern wardrobe.

She would definitely have a pair of Dolce & Gabbana shoes like these. I mean don't they just scream her name?

I'm not sure who the designer is, but yes once again it would be part of Marie's wardrobe.

A coat fit for the queen of fashion Lauren Shanley
Yep, she'd love Dark Fusion Boutique's clothes


And of course a duct tape dress. Not sure who designed it, but Marie would love it.

So let me know what you think Marie Antoinette would wear if she was alive today.

Green Tea Facial Mask

We all know that green tea is super for your body. It's full of antioxidants. But we all have to keep in mind that our skin is the largest organ of our bodies, and yes, green tea is good for it too. It prevents damage from the sun, decreases redness in the skin, and reduces wrinkles. So here is an easy homemade green tea facial mask with stuff that is already in your kitchen.

Here's what you need.

Organic <b>Green</b> <b>Tea</b> <b>Bag</b> ( Organic <b>Green</b> <b>Tea</b> <b>Bag</b>)

Two green tea bags. Use organic if you can. Remember you don't want the extra chemicals on your skin.

1 Tablespoon of sugar. Sugar is going to act as your exfoliant.

The 7 Harms of Sugar

1 Tablespoon of lemon juice. Freshly squeezed is definitely the best. Lemons are packed full of vitamin c which help fight the aging process.

Here is what you need to do.

Steep your tea bag for a few minutes. You'll want to end up with a just about an 1/8 of a cup of tea from the bags. Now mix the three items together. And apply the mixture to your face while it is hot. Then leave it on for 15 to 20 minutes. And rinse off with warm water.

After using this your skin will feel fresh and clean.

Be Yourself

It's only when we spend time with people that we have known for long periods of time that we realize that Oscar Wilde was right you do need to be yourself; everybody else is already taken. Thank God for all the people who stick around through the good times, the bad times, and the times we just don't tell others about.

Five Things I Learned Watching The Big Bang Theory

Remember how they used to tell us that television would rot our brains. Remember how adults used to tell us we would never learn anything just sitting and watching television. Well here are five things I learned from watching The Big Bang Theory.

When Sheldon and Amy broke up, and Sheldon decided to bring home a bunch of cats. I learned that a group of cats is called a clowder. It seems as though crazy cat people have always been around, and well there is a word for the group of cats.


The next thing I learned is that vexillology is the study of flags. Who knew that people actually study that stuff? But then again Sheldon and Amy are probably the only people who would put together a 52 week long show on youtube about flags. Well, may they aren’t I really haven’t checked that one out.

Physica is actually the originally form of the word physics used in Ancient Greece. I needed to know this just as much as Penny did, but for some weird reason it’s stuck in my head.  

I learned that a graphene sheet is a very thin sheet of carbon. Like it’s so thin it’s one atom thick. I never heard of a graphene sheet before The Big Bang Theory.

I never had any idea that loop quantum gravity was a theory that tried to merge quantum mechanics and standard general relativity. Remember it was part of the reason that Leslie ended her relationship with Leonard. Who knew how important it is?

So the next time someone tells you that television is bad for you just point them toward this post, and they'll learn that prime time television can be just as educational as PBS.

Red Flag

Sometimes you are talking to a person, and all of the sudden they say something and you literally see a red flag. You know everything in you starts screaming watch out trouble is ahead. I had one of those incidents today.

I was speaking to someone today, and that person stated, you can’t trust those two, but you can trust me. Now, I have known the three individuals for a few months. They aren’t people I’ve known forever, but it’s long enough to know a little bit about their behavior. And when the individual made that statement, I immediately stopped what I was doing because I saw that red flag. I immediately thought oh, no, she did not just say that. This is so high school, and I am so out of high school. But she did. It was my choice how to handle the statement. This could lead to a confrontation or it could go smoothly. I could say something or just choose to ignore her. I decided to simply say that hasn’t been my experience. And the individual went on to another topic.

It felt to me that the individual who made that red flag statement was just trying to stir up trouble. And I knew from the past, that someone who talks bad about other individuals will not just talk bad about one person, they will talk bad about me. I felt as though she wanted me to say something bad about those individuals so that she could go and tell others what I said. I also know that I don’t like talking bad about other people. It never makes me feel good about myself. So I feel pretty good, that for once in my life, I finally paid attention when I saw that red flag. I have finally learned that a conversation takes two people. And I finally figured out that I just shouldn’t participate in that conversation because it’s leading nowhere positive.

... and a Denim Shirt Cushion Cover

I randomly found a denim shirt in my fabric stash.... probably bought from a charity shop 'just incase'! I'm glad I did buy it though, as it meant I had something to upcycle into a cushion cover!

In my last post, I shared Part 1 of my Fall/Halloween Decor in our Living Room.

Easy Taco Pizza

Burlap & Lace Garland

As much as I LOVE this time of year, for some reason I’ve never really gotten into decorating for it. But, this year’s a little bit different! As a new blogger, I find myself getting swept away by the excitement and beauty of this Fall decor that’s surrounding me. 

Mini Oreo Cheesecake

from Titi Crafty

I learned the bease for a cheesecake recipe from my mom when I was a teen and I hadn’t changed it  a bit.

from AM to PM Blog

Doing a full-on beauty stash clear-out after neglecting it for a while is pretty grim.   It’s really not pretty.

What do you look for in a friend?

from Penny A. Zeller

I recently watched the movie Mom’s Night Out for the second time. I love this movie and highly recommend it. One of my favorite things is the friendship between Allyson and Izzy. They’ve been best friends since grade school, and while they have totally different 0personalities, they can rely on each other no matter what. Even when Allyson has a major meltdown, Izzy is still her best friend, cheering her on…and being there for Allyson through thick and thin.

Olaf Dress Up Costume

from  Ruffles And Rain Boots

I wasn’t going to make a FROZEN inspired Olaf dress up apron until some friends of ours suggested that all of our kids go together as the cast of FROZEN for Halloween this year (thanks Ang and Kris!). Because I’ve already made FROZEN inspired Princess Anna and Queen Elsa costumes, the only one left was this little cutie. When sketching out this Olaf costume, I designed it while keeping a certain young man in mind. That adorable, precocious little flirt of a fellow has a sensory processing disorder so whatever I designed couldn’t have a hood or anything on his face because he doesn’t like that.

Honey Spice Streusel Muffins | Annie's Noms - These Honey Spice Streusel Muffins are just perfect for your breakfast! Soft, sweet and spicy with the added crunch of a streusel topping.

How to Have a Backyard Scavenger Hunt with FREE Printable
from My Big Fat Happy Life
We have done scavenger hunts in a couple different ways 1) creating a chart with photos and words on the computer (see below for a FREE printable) or 2) hand drawing the pictures of the items and writing out the word.  For older children you could just write out a list of items to find.  I also like the idea of re-enforcing numbers by having S find 5 rocks or 8 leaves.

There are lots of items I would consider absolutely essential as a mom, but honestly there’s only one item I can’t go 20 minutes without and that’s my phone. And it’s not because I’m playing Candy Crush or posting pictures on Facebook. It’s because of the collection of free apps I’ve gathered that tell me what to do, when to do it, and how to do it. Ones that calm my baby, put him to sleep, then calm me. And ones that tell me what’s going on outside the world of baby. And for those moments when I do have time to post on Facebook, it makes the process possible (and fun).

Be it Diwali or Christmas, this is a perfect craft for the coming up holiday season. Wouldn't it make a lovely gift for friends or family?

Does Art Reflect Life

It’s an age old debate does art reflect life or does life reflect art? Nobody really knows the answer to that question. But listen to the songs that are currently being played on the radio in Liberia, and let me know what you think the answer is.
